The story of David and Goliath is a popular Bible story found in 1 Samuel 17. Goliath was a giant Philistine warrior who challenged the Israelites to single combat. Saul, the leader of the Israelites, chose David to fight Goliath. Despite being much smaller and weaker than Goliath, David trusted in God and defeated him with a stone from his sling. This story is seen as an example of courage, faith, and overcoming what seems impossible.
