1 Samuel 17:51-52

Context
17:51 David ran and stood over the Philistine. He grabbed Goliath’s 1  sword, drew it from its sheath, 2  killed him, and cut off his head with it. When the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they ran away.

17:52 Then the men of Israel and Judah charged forward, shouting a battle cry. 3  They chased the Philistines to the valley 4  and to the very gates of Ekron. The Philistine corpses lay fallen along the Shaaraim road to Gath and Ekron.

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

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

3 tn Heb “arose and cried out.”

4 tc Most of the LXX ms tradition has here “Gath.”
