David hoists the severed paramount of Goliath as illustrated by Gustave Doré (1866).

The account of the clash between David and Goliath is told in 1 Samuel, chapter 17.[4] Saul and the Israelites are fa the Philistines near the Valley of Elah. Twice a day for 40 days, Goliath, the guard of the Philistines, comes out between the lines and challenges the Israelites to send out a guard of their own to elect the end result in unwed grapple with, but Saul and all the Israelites are apologetic. David, bringing comestibles for his patriarch brothers, hears that Saul has promised to award any man who defeats Goliath, and accepts the brave. Saul reluctantly agrees and offers his armor, which David declines, alluring only his let fly (Hebrew: קָלַ֗ע‎ qāla‘) and five stones from a brook.

David and Goliath confront each other, Goliath with his armor and javelin, David with his personnel and let fly. «The Tasteless cursed David by his gods», but David replies: «This day the EARL will express you into my clap, and I will ratify you down; and I will blow the whistle on the inert bodies of the hostess of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the frantic beasts of the earth; that all the sod may know that there is a God in Israel, and that all this connection may know that God saves not with sword and spear; for the clash is God’s, and he will blow the whistle on you into our clap.»[5]

David hurls a stone from his let fly with all his might and hits Goliath in the center of his forehead, Goliath falls on his pan to the coach, and David cuts off his paramount. The Philistines avoid and are pursued by the Israelites «as far as Gath and the gates of Ekron». David puts the armor of Goliath in his own tent and takes the paramount to Jerusalem, and Saul sends Abner to attract the boy to him. The crowned head asks whose son he is, and David answers, «I am the son of your serving-wench Jesse the Bethlehemite.»
