6
When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab and said, "Certainly the LORD's anointed one is here before Him."
7

11
Samuel asked him, "Are these all the sons you have?" "There is still the youngest," he answered, "but right now he's tending the sheep." Samuel told Jesse, "Send for him. We won't sit down to eat until he gets here."
12
So Jesse sent for him. He had beautiful eyes and a healthy, handsome appearance. Then the LORD said, "Anoint him, for he is the one."
13
So Samuel took the horn of oil, anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and the Spirit of the LORD took control of David from that day forward. Then Samuel set out and went to Ramah.

"Now this is what you are to say to My servant David: 'This is what the LORD of Hosts says: I took you from the pasture and from following the sheep to be ruler over My people Israel.
9
I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have destroyed all your enemies before you. I will make a name for you like that of the greatest in the land.
10
I will establish a place for My people Israel and plant them, so that they may live there and not be disturbed again. Evildoers will not afflict them as they have done
11
ever since the day I ordered judges to be over My people Israel. I will give you rest from all your enemies. " 'The LORD declares to you: The LORD Himself will make a house for you.
12
When your time comes and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.
13
He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
14
I will be a father to him, and he will be a son to Me. When he does wrong, I will discipline him with a human rod and with blows from others.
15
But My faithful love will never leave him as I removed it from Saul; I removed him from your way.
16
Your house and kingdom will endure before Me forever, and your throne will be established forever.'"

22
The enemy will not afflict him; no wicked man will oppress him.
23
I will crush his foes before him and strike those who hate him.
24
My faithfulness and love will be with him, and through My name his horn will be exalted.
25
I will extend his power to the sea and his right hand to the rivers.
