Ovakulunhuongalo ohava kendabala oku ke va talela po komaumbo avo noku va pa ‘eeshalinghenda dopamhepo,’ sha hala kutya, okupopya navo kombinga yaasho tashi pameke eitavelo lavo.

David okwa li omuladi nokwa li a dipaa omutongolume.  (1 Sam. 17:4, 48-51; 1 Omaf. 20:5, 8) Omido dihapu konima yaasho, David okwa li vali a lwifa omutongolume umwe eshi Ovaisrael va li tava lu nOvafilisti.
