Obed of Jesse, and Jesse of David [the ancestor of Jesus Christ].
But now your kingdom shall not continue; the Lord has sought out [David] a man after His own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be prince and ruler over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.
Jesse sent and brought him. David had a healthy reddish complexion and beautiful eyes, and was fine-looking. The Lord said [to Samuel], Arise, anoint him; this is he.

So Saul sent messengers to Jesse and said, Send me David your son, who is with the sheep.
And Jesse took a donkey loaded with bread, a skin of wine, and a kid and sent them by David his son to Saul.
And David came to Saul and served him. Saul became very fond of him, and he became his armor-bearer.
Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David remain in my service, for he pleases me.
And when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, David took a lyre and played it; so Saul was refreshed and became well, and the evil spirit left him.
