In this narrative, David meets the Philistines in battle twice – and we have the record before us of two defeats. Why? because God is with David. Because God goes before David. And, if God is for David who could be against him? The whole narrative moves very quickly so as to keep our focus on the main things for the History of Redemption and the Comfort of God’s people. I take from these verses that God’s protection takes many forms, but it always performs!
