The War Effort:
Young David arrives at the battle with provisions for his brethren and passes supplies to the baggage officers. The cart is filled with armour to be used in the battle against the Philistines. (1 Samuel 17:2022)

David Determined:
The precocious David makes his way to the battlefield, where Saul confers with his men. While among the soldiers, David hears the taunts of Goliath and resolves to do battle with him, despite the chiding of his older brother. Meanwhile, the haughty Philistine giant continues to yell challenges and insults from across the battlefield. (1 Samuel 17:2330)
