1 Samuel 17
One day, David delivered food to his brothers who were battling the Philistines. He heard a Philistine shouting and making fun of them.
“Who is that man?” asked David. They told him about Goliath, the mighty warrior. No one could defeat him! But David wasn’t afraid of the giant. When King Saul heard of David’s bravery, he called David before him.
“Don’t worry, I’ll go fight that giant,” said David.
“But he’s a warrior,” said Saul. “You’re only a boy.”
“I killed a lion and bear to protect my father’s sheep,” said David. “God will help me kill this giant.”
Saul gave David his armor and weapons. But they were too big for David.
So without any armor, David went to face the giant. He stopped by a stream to pick up some stones and placed them in his bag. Then he stood before Goliath.
“Am I a dog that you come at me with sticks?” bellowed Goliath. David looked up and said, “You come against me with’,’ weapons, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty. This is God’s battle!” Then David put a stone in his sling and swung it around and around until the sling whistled. The stone whizzed through the air and smacked Goliath right in the forehead. And the giant fell to the ground with a mighty earth-shaking thud!
