- 1 Now the R554 Philistines gathered their armies for battle; and they were gathered at Socoh which belongs to Judah, and they camped between Socoh R555 and Azekah, R556 in Ephes-dammim. R557 2 Saul and the men of Israel were gathered and camped in the R558 valley of Elah, and drew up in battle array to encounter the Philistines. 3 The Philistines stood on the mountain on one side while Israel stood on the mountain on the other side, with the valley between them. 4 Then a champion came out from the armies of the Philistines named Goliath, R559 from Gath, R560 whose height was six cubits F156 and a span. 5 He had a bronze helmet on his head, and he was clothed with scale-armor which F157 weighed five thousand shekels of bronze. 6 He also had bronze greaves F158 on his legs and a bronze R561 javelin slung between his shoulders. 7 The R562 shaft of his spear was like a weaver's beam, and the head of his spear weighed six hundred shekels of iron; his R563 shield-carrier also walked before him. 8 He stood and shouted to the ranks of Israel and said to them, "Why do you come out to draw up in battle array? Am I not the Philistine and you servants R564 of Saul? Choose a man for yourselves and let him come down to me. 9 "If R565 he is able to fight with me and kill F159 me, then we will become your servants; but if I prevail against him and kill F159 him, then you shall become our servants and serve us." 10 Again the Philistine said, "I R566 defy the ranks of Israel this day; give me a man that we may fight together." 11 When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.
