David vs. Goliath: David’s not such a nice guy after all

Fun fact: the giant Goliath is said to be four cubits and a span in the earliest accounts. That’s about 6 and a half feet tall. Not so great by today’s standards, but if you’ve ever seen suits of armour in a museum it’s obvious that humans are taller than they used to be. In later writings, Goliath came to be 6 cubits, or nearly 10 feet.
