and shouted to the ranks of Israel, "Why do you
come out and line up for battle? Am I not a
Philistine, and are you not the servants of
Saul? Choose a man and have him come down to me.
If he is able fight and kill me, we will become
your subjects; but if I overcome him and kill
him, you will become our subjects and serve us."
Then the Philistine said, "This day I defy the
ranks of Israel! Give me a man and let us fight
each other." On hearing the Philistine's words,
Saul and all the Israelites were dismayed and
terrified. 1 Samuel 17:8-11
