David and Goliath"David and Goliath" is a biblical story about the attack of the Philistine army on the Israelites. At the time Saul was the King of Israel and for 40 days he watched the Philistines giant warrior, Goliath, terrorize and mocked his army. According to biblical fact Goliath stood over 9 feet tall wearing a full suit of armor, he was an impenetrable force.
It was not until a father sent his teenage son in search of his two brothers on the battle lines that the Israelites had hope in defeating Goliath. For hearing Goliaths insults, David the young man, felt compelled to fight him. After much convincing King Saul allowed David to do so.
Dressed in a simple tunic with a shepherd’s staff David praised the Lord God of Israel and warned Goliath that the battle is the Lord’s and he would deliver the Philistines in their hands. Once David was done with his sermon Goliath moved in to strike while David remained poised and calm. David reached down and grabbed his slingshot and a stone, with precision he aimed for a space between the armor on Goliaths head. Within a moment Goliath had flopped to the ground, dead. David then reached down and grabbed Goliath sword and used it to cut Goliaths head off. Seeing their best warrior defeated the Philistine army went into a state of retreat. However, the Israelites pursued and killed their enemy.
