Goliath

The Israelite-Philistine war was a military conflict between the Israelites, under King Saul, and their enemies the Philistines in the Valley of Elah.[1]

Goliath, a Giant mercenary employed by the Philistines, challenges the Israelites to send out a champion of their own to decide the outcome in single combat. A young boy accepts the challenge, as all the Israelites fear Goliath. The young boy hurls a stone from his sling, hitting Goliath on the forehead, and then proceeds to slay him.[2]
