1 Samuel 17:12
Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Beth-lehem-judah, whose name was Jesse; and he had eight sons: and the man was an old man in the days of Saul, stricken [in years] among men. (ASV)
So Jesse had 8 sons,
1 Samuel 17:14 And David was the youngest; ...
According to 1 Samuel 17, therefore Jesse had 8 sons, whereof David was the youngest. This is in keeping with 1 Samuel 16:10-11.
But according to 1 Chronicles 2:13-15, David was the 7th son of Jesse.
