The Life of King David

Born: 1032 b.c.e.
Goliath: 1049 b.c.e.
  • At age 17, David was summoned by King Saul to come to the battle feild and play music.  At the time, the Israelites were fighting the Philistines.  One obnoxious Philistine soldier, Goliath taunted the soldiers of Israel and dared for them to send their strongest soldier to fight in one-on-one combat.  Goliath was 10.5 feet and therefore without delay, exposed the offer.  When David heard the insults he took great offense and felt the need to do something.  He willingly went into battle with his sling, pepples, and his staff.  Goliath laughed at the offer and mocked the very small David.  As Goliath Approached, David reached for a stone and slung it at Goliath's head.  When he fell David cut off the head of Goliath with Goliath's sword.  This voctory was one of David's first moves toward fame.
