David’s soldiers beat the Philistines. David was a hero! The women sang, ‘David is ten times stronger than Saul!’ That made King Saul jealous and angry. – Slide 3
King Saul got so angry that he tried to kill David. But God saved David from King Saul.  David knew that it was God who saved him from his enemies and helped him to be brave. – Slide 4
