Hubo un muchachito llamado David. Era pastor y a diario cuidaba de las ovejas de su padre.

David no era muy grande, ni rico, ni importante, pero amaba a Dios, y Dios tena algo especial para l.

There once was a young boy named David. He was a shepherd, and every day he took care of his fathers sheep. David wasnt big, rich or important, but he loved God, and God had a very special plan for him.

David era muy valiente. Un da, oy un gruido detrs de l. Se acercaba un len! David or y luego sac su honda y puso una pequea piedra en ella. Hizo girar la honda y luego arroj la piedra al aire, derrumbando al len. Las ovejas estaban a salvo.
David was very brave. One day he heard a snarl behind him. A lion was approaching! With a prayer to God, David pulled out his sling and put a small stone inside it. He spun his sling round and round, and then the stone flew through the air, knocking the lion down. The sheep were safe again.

En esos das los israelitas estaban en guerra con los filisteos. Los filisteos queran esclavizar al pueblo de Israel. Tres de los hermanos mayores de David haban ido a pelear en la guerra. Un da el padre de David lo llam: Ve al campamento donde estn tus hermanos, y llvales buena comida preparada por tu madre. S, padre respondi David. Y parti de inmediato.
In those days, the Israelites were at war with the philistines. The philistines wanted to make the people of Israel their slaves. Three of Davids older brothers had gone to fight in the war. One day, Davids father called him. Go to the army camp where your brothers are, to bring them some of your mothers good food. Yes, Father, David said. And he set off at once.

Cuando se acercaba al campamento oy gritos y ruido de armaduras. Subi una colina para ver a qu se deba el alboroto del campamento. David mir con sorpresa el campamento del ejrcito filisteo, y vio un filisteo gigante. Fiu! Por lo menos debe de ser el doble de mi tamao! Pens David.
As David neared the army camp he could hear loud voices and the clanging of armor. He climbed a nearby hill to see what all the commotion was about. Davids eyes widened as he looked over towards the Philistine army camp and saw a huge Philistine giant! Wow! He must be at least twice my size! David thought.

Entonces el gigante Goliat grit a voz en cuello: Manden un hombre que pelee conmigo! Si me derrota seremos sus siervos. Si yo lo mato, ustedes sern nuestros siervos! No hubo respuesta del campamento israelita. Todos teman desafiar al poderoso gigante Goliat.
Just then the giant Goliath started shouting at the top of his voice. Send out a man to fight me, one on one! If he defeats me, then we will be your servants. But if I kill him, then you will be our servants! Ha ha ha ha ha! There was no answer from the Israelite camp. Everyone was afraid to challenge the mighty Goliath.

Peleare contra Goliat! David dijo a sus hermanos y a los otros soldados. Los soldados la llevaron al rey Sal, el jefe de su ejrcito. Al principio a Sal no le gust la idea, pero David dijo: Dios me ayud a matar animales salvajes que trataron atacar a mis ovejas. l me ayudar a derrotar a este gigante filisteo.
Ill fight Goliath! David said to his brothers and the other soldiers. The soldiers brought him to King Saul, the head of the army. Saul did not like the idea at first, but David said, God has helped me to kill wild animals who tried to attack my sheep. I know that He will help me now to also defeat this Philistine giant.

El rey Sal ofreci a David su armadura y espada. Pero la armadura era tan pesada que casi no poda moverse. No necesito la armadura ni la espada dijo David-. Dios me ayudar a ganar esta batalla. Con solo su honda en la mano y cinco piedras lisas en el bolsillo, David parti al campo de batalla a ver a Goliat.
King Saul offered David his armor and his sword. But it was so heavy that he could hardly move it. I dont need this armor or sword, David said. God will help me to win this battle. With only his sling in his hand, and five smooth stones in his pocket, David went out onto the battlefield to meet Goliath.

Goliat se rio cuando vio venir a David. Pens que ganara fcilmente la pelea. David pidi ayuda a Dios, y luego corri hacia Goliat. Hizo girar la honda, ms y ms rpido, hasta que finalmente lanz de la honda una piedra lisa. Vol por el campo hasta golpear a Goliat en la frente. El gigante cay! Goliat estaba muerto; derrotado por un pequeo pastor!
Goliath laughed when he saw David coming. Goliath thought this was a fight he could easily win. David called out to God for help. Then he swung his sling around, faster and faster, until a smooth stone went flying out. It flew across the field and hit Goliaths forehead. Down the giant fell! Goliath was dead defeated by a small shepherd boy!

Los soldados filisteos dejaron sus armas y corrieron lo ms rpido que podan para alejarse del campo de batalla. Los soldados israelitas los persiguieron, y salieron victoriosos! Todo gracias al pequeo David, su valenta, fe y confianza en Dios. David am a Dios y lo obedeci. Y muchos aos despus, tras la muerte del rey Sal, David fue el siguiente rey de Israel!
The Philistine soldiers dropped their weapons and began to run as fast as they could away from the battlefield. The Israelite soldiers chased them, and were victorious! All because of little David, his bravery and his faith and trust in God. David continued to love God and follow His ways. And many years later, after King Saul died, David became the next king of Israel!

David gobern Israel por mucho tiempo y ense a la gente a amar a Dios y a servirle. David escribi muchos cantos de oracin y alabanza a Dios, llamados Salmos, que estn en la Biblia. Esos cantos nos recuerdan que no importa quines seamos, a dnde vayamos o que hagamos, Dios nos tiene un amor muy especial.
David ruled Israel for a very long time, and taught the people to love God and serve Him. David also wrote many songs of prayer and praise to God, called psalms, which are recorded in the Bible. These songs are a reminder that no matter who we are, where we go or what we do, God loves each one of us in a very special way.
