5 And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair [1] slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver's beam.

David's wars.

Though the Lord will severely correct the sins of his believing people, he will not leave them in the hands of their enemies. His assistance will overcome all advantages of number and strength of those that defy his Israel. All that trust in Christ, shall be made more than conquerors through him that loveth them.
