David and Goliath

by Micah
(Sydney, Australia)


Now the Philistines camped and were ready to attack.

I, Goliath from Gath, was there champion. I came out and said to the Israelites,"Bring a man and fight me. If the man overcomes me then we will become your subjects. But if I overcome you then you will become our subjects."

When the Israelites heard they were terrified and scared. And I got up each morning and said the same thing to the Israelites forty times.

Now back at David’s home, David was looking after his father’s sheep. His father came to him giving him a loaf of bread.

"Go to the battle ground," so David went.

When he got there he realized that the Philistines had a champion who was I, so David went to the King Saul and said, "Can I fight Goliath?"

The King said, "You are just a boy," but David said, "I have tended my father’s sheep and when a bear or a lion came I would strike it down. Goliath would just be like a bear or a lion."

So Saul put David in a bronze suit of armor but David couldn’t walk in it very well. So he got into his normal clothes with a sling and a few stones. He said to Saul, "With God’s help I can destroy him."

So David went into the battle field. When I saw David and his sling and I laughed. I had a spear and sword and a shield and a javelin. Then I saw David pick up a stone slip it in his sling and swing it around and shoot it at my forehead. It hit me in my forehead and I fell to the ground.

The rest of my fellow Philistines fled.
David took my sword and cut off my head.
