David is fairly well
known... slew The giant Goliath, with a sling shot, when he was but a lad,
anointed by Samuel at the Lords direction to be King, slew 10s of
thousands of Philistines, according to the women of Israel. David was
highly favored of God, and King Saul, Jonathan's father, was afraid of
David. King Saul made numerous attempts on David's life.
