So had David slain the giant Goliath of the Philistines. Seeing their champion dead, the Philistines flee. They should have come to the Hebrews and said, “We are thy servants.” So they had promised by the mouth of the giant in the event he should be killed. “If he be able to fight with me, and to kill me,” these had been his words, “then will we be your servants”. Such had been their proposal. And it had been accepted by David’s fighting with their champion. But the impossible had happened. Their champion was killed. And the Philistines now flee.
