1 Samuel 17:24-26 New English Translation (NET Bible)

24 When all the men of Israel saw this man, they retreated[a] from his presence and were very afraid.

25 The men of Israel said, “Have you seen this man who is coming up? He does so[b] to defy Israel. But the king will make the man who can strike him down very wealthy! He will give him his daughter in marriage, and he will make his father’s house exempt from tax obligations in Israel.”

26 David asked the men who were standing near him, “What will be done for the man who strikes down this Philistine and frees Israel from this humiliation?[c] For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he defies the armies of the living God?”
