David and Goliath
Reflect on Scripture and learn a Hebrew word each day for the next two-weeks with this free devotional, Holy Land Moments! They pitched camp at Ephes Dammim, between Sokoh and Azekah. His height was six cubits and a span. Am I not a Philistine, and are you not the servants of Saul? Choose a man and have him come down to me. Give me a man and let us fight each other.
The story signified Saul 's unfitness to rule, as Saul himself should have fought for Israel. The phrase " David and Goliath " has taken on a more popular meaning, denoting an underdog situation, a contest where a smaller, weaker opponent faces a much bigger, stronger adversary. Saul and the Israelites are facing the Philistines in the Valley of Elah. Twice a day for 40 days, morning and evening, Goliath, the champion of the Philistines, comes out between the lines and challenges the Israelites to send out a champion of their own to decide the outcome in single combat , but Saul is afraid. David , bringing food for his elder brothers on the battlefield, hears that Goliath has defied the armies of God and of the reward from Saul to the one that defeats him, and accepts the challenge. Saul reluctantly agrees and offers his armor, which David declines, taking only his staff, sling and five stones from a brook.
Their champion fighter, Goliath, taunted the armies of Israel daily. But no Hebrew soldier had dared to face this giant of a man. David, newly anointed but still a boy, was deeply offended by the giant's haughty, mocking challenges. He was zealous to defend the Lord's name. Armed with the inferior weapons of a shepherd, but empowered by God, David killed the mighty Goliath. With their hero down, the Philistines scattered in fear.
