1 Samuel 17:49-51

Context
17:49 David reached his hand into the bag and took out a stone. He slung it, striking the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank deeply into his forehead, and he fell down with his face to the ground.

17:50 1 David prevailed over the Philistine with just the sling and the stone. He struck down the Philistine and killed him. David did not even have a sword in his hand. 2  17:51 David ran and stood over the Philistine. He grabbed Goliath’s 3  sword, drew it from its sheath, 4  killed him, and cut off his head with it. When the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they ran away.

1 tc Most LXX mss lack v. 50.

2 tn Verse 50 is a summary statement; v. 51 gives a more detailed account of how David killed the Philistine.

3 tn Heb “his”; the referent (Goliath) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tc Most LXX mss lack the words “drew it from its sheath.”
