Deuteronomy 11:16 - 21 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived , and ye turn aside , and serve other gods, and worship them; 17 And then the LORD'S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you. 18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. 19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up . 20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates: 21 That your days may be multiplied , and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth. Deuteronomy 31:12 13 Gather the people together , men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear , and that they may learn , and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law: 13 And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear , and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.

Every day, Goliath yelled at the Israelites. He asked for a man to come and fight him. All the men were afraid. One day, David’s father Jesse sent David with some food for his brothers. David heard Goliath yelling at the army. David asked the men what does the man get who kills the giant. The men told him that the man gets the king’s daughter and he never has to pay taxes. David said, Your Majesty, I take care of my father’s sheep. Any time a lion or a bear carries off a lamb, I go after it, attack it, and rescue the lamb. I have killed a lion and a bear; I will do the same to this Philistine. David tried on the king’s armor, but it was too big. David ran towards the giant. David took his sling shot and three stone.
