Poole's Outline of 1 Samuel 17: David and Goliath
The armies of the Israelites and Philistines ready for battle: Goliath terrifieth the Israelites with his stature, armour, and challenge, 1-11. David sent by his father to visit his brethren; is willing to encounter with him, 12-27; for which Eliab chideth him: he is brought to Saul, and showeth the reason of his confidence, 28-37. He taketh a staff, and sling, with five stones, 38-40. Goliath curseth and threateneth him, 41-44. David’s faith: he slayeth him, 45-50. The Philistines flee; are smitten and plundered, 51-54. Saul taketh notice of David, 55-58.
