Sam 17:1-3) Now the
Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and were gathered
together at Shochoh, which belongeth
to Judah [Heb: celebrated ///
to use the hand], and pitched
between Shochoh [Heb: to entwine,
shut in] and Azekah [Heb: tilled /// fence about], in Ephesdammim [Heb: boundary of blood drops /// cessation, an end, no further]. And Saul and the men of Israel [Heb: he will rule as God] were gathered together, and pitched by the
THE CHAMPION OF EVIL
(1 Sam 17:4-7) And
there went out a champion [representing
the Philistines] out of the camp of
the Philistines, named Goliath, of
GOLIATH DEFIES GOD
(1 Sam 17:8-11) And
he [Goliath] stood and cried unto the armies of
(1 Sam (17:16) And the Philistine drew near morning and evening, and presented himself forty days.
(1 Sam 17:38,39) And Saul armed David with his [Saul’s] armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail. And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed [hesitated] to go; for he had not proved it [Heb: tested it]. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them [“for I am not used to them” Amplif.]. And David put them off him.
(1 Sam 17:40,41) And he [David] took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine. And the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him.
GOLIATH CURSES DAVID
(1 Sam 17:42-44) And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him [Heb: to disesteem: despise, scorned]: for he was but a youth, and ruddy [Heb: reddish], and of a fair [Heb: beautiful: comely] countenance. And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves [Heb: sticks]? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.
DAVID PROPHECIES TO GOLIATH
(1 Sam 17:45-47) Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth [measure for measure: the Law]; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands.
(1 Sam 17:48-51) And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted [Heb: to be liquid or flow easily], and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.
