David and Goliath

David and Goliath

David Temple where many water

"And the Philistines stood before the mountain apart, and Israel stood before the mountain apart, and the valley between them." Philistines pretending not want war and bloodshed, so they scold things against Saul and the men of Israel and say: If the Lord with you, what you will be interested in the war? Bring one of you who fought Goliath and the Lord your God Ioshiacm hand.

Then out Goliath – the giant Philistine, height six cubits and a span (ie, more than three feet in height, mother = 57.6 cm" m), "and a cap of bronze on his head and a suit of armor is wearing, and the weight of armor five thousand shekels of brass., And greaves of brass upon his legs, and a javelin brass between his shoulders, spear wood furnishing lamp and flame spear six hundred shekels of iron, and made the cold go ahead. "Philistine Goliath with iron and copper vessels filled with pride, confident in victory, standing and cursing and calling boasting against Israel to bring down the spirits and plant fear in their hearts. "And he said to them: Why do you leave about war? Am I not the Philistine (what do you boast 'vertical yours? -" I am the Lord your God ") and you are slaves to ask, RAW (select) you people down to me. Whether he could fight with me and my neighbor – and we you slaves, and if I eat it and I cried – and we were slaves and serve us. and the Philistine said: I my shame for Israel to this day, give me a man and fought together. "

Saul and all Israel heard the words of the Philistine, "and his conversation and seem really" that no one is a hero who fought Goliath and did not know where salvation. The decision here is very difficult: all the fate of Israel depends on the person who will fight the invasion, if loses battle against the Philistine – Israel will lose their freedom and become enslaved to the Philistines. All lying here on the shoulders of the men of Israel which will suit to fight the invasion, but still there was no such man.

Why fear fell upon Saul and the camp of Israel? How is it that King Saul did not find a hero worthy to fight Goliath the Philistine? After all, Paul himself is a man of war, he fought the Philistines and Stream Wins: "The Philistines assembled to fight with Israel: thirty thousand chariots, and six thousand horsemen, and with sand on the beach rabbi., And will encamped Michmas front of the house On (Samuel I, I." c) … And all Israel heard say struck Saul the garrison of the Philistines … and Saul went up from following the Philistines, and the Philistines went to their place, and Saul caught monarchy in Israel, and fought around all his enemies: Moab, and the Ammonites, and in Edom, and the kings of Zobah, and the Philistines, and wherever he convict., and made Force smote the Amalekites and shelter them Israel from Shuo … and Saul smote the Amalekites dwelt from Havilah to Shur, which is before Egypt, and was captured Agag king of the Amalekites alive, and all the people Hhֱrim by the sword "(Samuel I, I") and .

Why not send one of King Saul his heroes? Or Jonathan his son, the mighty warrior who bravely fought the Philistines? "And Jonathan smote the garrison of the Philistines that Geva" … the reason is: after Saul was anointed king, and when the spirit of God put Saul, then the spirit of God is for the masses to get caught up in wars. When sera from the spirit of God – also said people who had a heroic spirit, because the spirit of heroism is not related to physical force, but a spiritual force. Meanwhile safety of the Philistines is increasing, "and drew near the Philistine day and night," according Sotah from" B, B: Felicia had stabilized twice a day: morning and evening, to cancel the Israel commandment reading "heard" in the morning and Arabic, since known Sbch Reading "heard" Israeli survivors of their enemies and gain salvation. And so he did for forty days.

The three sons of Jesse had gone after Saul major war "and David is the smallest" Even war is not worthy, he abandons the sheep on guard, came at his father's camp to visit the Peace brother, where he hears the hibernate and cursing uncircumcised Philistine Goliath.

David knows his soul, and his might that he could beat Goliath the Philistine hero as he struck one of the lions and bears in the wilderness who approached the herd, and that even without the risk and without the need for a miracle. Even the sword does not need to have just a small stone with a sling and a machine gun power into Goliath's forehead and missed. No one knew what a long and great strength of David has always been his heroism was covered from view. But David was still very humble and full of humility and afraid to publish the bravery, lest he should say to fame, "I am a worm and not a man, and despised the shame of a man." So thought David how to cover the greatest thing he's going to do, when to volunteer to fight Goliath the Philistine and remove the reproach from Israel.

To disguise the greatness and downplay the heroism, holding David in the words of the proclamation of King Saul: "And the man who kills, Iasrno King Big Ten, and give him his daughter, and make his father's house free in Israel." David asks his people: What will the man? To think that after his victory he fought only to the King's daughter married and be the recipient of the King, and did not know how long and how much power a fire burning jealousy of God.

"And hear Eliab his older brother talking to people, and anger even Eliab, David, and said, Why is it you lost? And who forsaken little flock enjoy the wilderness, I knew Zdnc and a bad heart that for the visibility of war descended. And David said: What have I done now?" … Although David has been anointed king, the ratio to remain estranged, and is still a shepherd for his father from time to time when the spirit of King Saul in good and when King Saul does not need his playing. But despite all David keeps humility and reduces himself, he drives honor his elder sibling as before, and meets his brother soft things.

Although David hears the announcer King Saul, he asks again and again: What will the man who beats the Philistine yonder? And responded: "Iasrno King Big Ten, and give him his daughter" … "and changed him against another, and said such a thing, and people sat up first".

Also speaking to Saul before the battle with Goliath, he reveals and conceals a lot jealous God burning in his heart against some Z's invasion. And words of humility and prayer is the number to ask his act with Harry and pooh where confidence in God: "Yi who Htzlni the lion and the claws of the bear, He rescue me this Philistine."

When Saul gives him his uniform, he took his hands away so as not to give him the eyes of all the people and in order not to upset Saul and cause him grief. He wants to remain modest and humble disguise the greatness and heroism and reduce itself, it relies only on the" crutch rather than uniforms and weapons. King Saul sends David to the Philistine giant Goliath fight and blesses him: "And Saul said to David: You Wei will be with you."

Now the eyes of all Israel are married to the battle between David and Goliath. Not little David is now in front of the Philistine scolding, but the sword of Israel and Israel's fate is now tilted Philistine on the head.

And all nations know and recognize that God of Israel: "And all the land that god to Israel." And that Israel also knew who thought the Holy One – blessed – he who delivered them by natural means, not by the sword and the spear who delivered them: "And all this assembly that sword and spear Yahushia Yi that Leigh war, and he will give you our hands."

David sends for his tool, taking away a stone and sweet Philistine in his forehead. Sinking stone in Goliath's forehead and he fell on his face to the ground.
