Thread on David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17)

The combat is over in just one verse, so why take 58 verses to tell the story?

There's much more here than meets the eye.

Why do people always tell the story without the cheese (v. 18)?

The chapter begins with the Philistines invading Judah.

Philistines and Israelites face each other from their vantage points on the two sides of the Valley of Elah.
The Philistines have a big guy named Goliath on their side (v. 4).

Interestingly, after initially being named, he generally just gets called 'the Philistine' (e.g. v. 10). He no doubt thinks his name/reputation are important. The narrator doesn't.
