1 Samuel 17

The Philistine warrior Goliath defies the Lord and Israel; David kills him.

  • By defying Israel (v. 10) who was Goliath really fighting against (cp. v. 36)?
  • Who did Goliath depend on? Who did David depend on?
  • Carefully read and meditate on what David says in verses 46–47. David spoke and acted with faith and confidence. Did he have a biblical basis for this?
