1 Samuel 17:15-20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 David would come and go from Saul’s presence to tend his father’s sheep at Bethlehem.

16 Meanwhile the Philistine came forward and took his stand morning and evening for forty days.

17 Now Jesse said to his son David: “Take this ephah of roasted grain and these ten loaves for your brothers, and bring them quickly to your brothers in the camp. 18 Also take these ten cheeses for the field officer. Greet your brothers and bring home some token from them. 19 Saul and your brothers, together with all Israel, are at war with the Philistines in the valley of the Elah.” 20 Early the next morning, having left the flock with a shepherd, David packed up and set out, as Jesse had commanded him. He reached the barricade of the camp just as the army, on their way to the battleground, were shouting their battle cry.

Amos 7:14-15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

14 Amos answered Amaziah, “I am not a prophet,[a] nor do I belong to a company of prophets. I am a herdsman and a dresser of sycamores, 15 but the Lord took me from following the flock, and the Lord said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’

Footnotes:

  1. 7:14 I am not a prophet: Amos reacts strongly to Amaziah’s attempt to classify him as a “prophet-for-hire” who “earns [his] bread” by giving oracles in exchange for payment (cf. 1 Sm 9:3–10; Mi 3:5). To disassociate himself from this kind of “professional” prophet, Amos rejects outright the title of nabi’ (“prophet”). By profession he is a herdsman/sheepbreeder and a dresser of sycamore trees, but God’s call has commissioned him to prophesy to Israel.
