i'm looking for the different tangible weapons people like david used when killing goliath, i'm just after some references, can you help me? thanks...
Hi there,Also notice the success of David's army was linked to his specific obedience to God's advice.Also, when the Egyptian army was trying to cross the Red Sea, who took off their chariot wheels?Here are some 'weapons'. There may be others.Judges 4:21 and 5:26Judges 15:15, 16 1 Samuel 22:102 Samuel 18:14 and Proverbs 7:23 2 Chron 26:14 Ephesians 6:17
"And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel"Gideon, with the Spirit of the Lord upon him used:Judges 8:10 and 11 - the sword (assumed)16 - thorns of the wilderness and briers17 - the sword (assumed)Barak, with the Lord's intervention used:Judges 4:16 - the sword(21 - enemy's wife used a hammer and nail)Samson, with the Spirit of God upon him used:Judges 14:6 - his bare hands15:4 - three hundred foxes and firebrands15:15 - the jawbone of an ass16:29-30 - bare handsGideon, with the Spirit of the Lord upon him used:Judges 8:10 and 11 - the sword (assumed)16 - thorns of the wilderness and briers17 - the sword (assumed)Jephthae, with the Spirit of the Lord upon him used:Judges 11:32 - the sword (assumed)David, after being anointed by the Lord used:1 Samuel 17:13 and 35 - sword?49 - sling and stone51 - the sword19:27 - probably the swordprobably another reference or two to David's weapon(s) of choiceMore later.
wow it's all very makeshift isnt it? aside from swords and the sling shot, the rest is down to improvisation with what you have. nice.
The only thing that comes to my mind is when David played an instrument to calm the spirit within Saul. I know that isn't 'slaying' but it sure is control or powerful.1 Samuel 16:23
