King James Version (KJV)

1 Samuel 16:16

13. Then Samuel tooke the horne of oile, and annointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came vpon Dauid, from that day forward: So Samuel rose vp and went to Ramah. 14. ¶ But the spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an euil spirit from the Lord troubled him. 15. And Sauls seruants said vnto him, Behold now, an euill spirit from God troubleth thee. 16. Let our lord now command thy seruants which are before thee, to seeke out a man, who is a cunning player on an harpe: and it shall come to passe when the euill spirit from God is vpon thee, that hee shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well. 17. And Saul said vnto his seruants, Prouide mee now a man, that can play well, and bring him to me. 18. Then answered one of the seruants, and said, Behold, I haue seene a sonne of Iesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of warre, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the Lord is with him. 19. ¶ Wherefore Saul sent messengers vnto Iesse, and said, Send me Dauid thy sonne, which is with the sheepe.
