Goliath Challenges the Israelites
Today's Passage: 1 Samuel 17:1-11
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.

1. The Philistines now mustered their army for battle and camped between Socoh in Judah and Azekah at Ephes-dammim.
2. Saul countered by gathering his Israelite troops near the valley of Elah.
3. So the Philistines and Israelites face each other on opposite hills, with the valley between them.
4. Then Goliath, a Philistine champion from Gath, came out of the Philistine ranks to face the forces of Isreal. He was over nine feet tall!
5. He wore a bronze helmet, and his bronze coat of mail weighed 125 pounds.
6. He also wore bronze leg armor, and he carried a bronze javelin on his shoulder.
7. The shaft of his spear was as heavy and thick as a weaver's beam, tipped with an iron spearhead that weighed 15 pounds. His armor bearer walked ahead of him carrying a shield.
8. Goliath stood and shouted a taunt across to the Israelites "Why are you all coming out to fight? he called. "I am the Philistine champion but you are only the servants of Saul. Choose one man to come down here and fight me!
9 If he kills me, then we will be your slaves. But if I kill him, you will be our slaves!
10. I defy the armies of Israeal today! Send me a man who will fight me!"
11. When Saul and the Israelites heard this, they were terrified and deeply shaken.
1 Samuel 17:1-11 NLT
