"And the Lord sent Nathan to David. He came to him, and said to him, ""There were two men in a certain city, the one rich and the other poor. "
The rich man had very many flocks and herds;
"but the poor man had nothing but one little ewe lamb, which he had bought. And he brought it up, and it grew up with him and with his children; it used to eat of his morsel, and drink from his cup, and lie in his bosom, and it was like a daughter to him. "
