David Holds the Head of the Slain Goliath
“Then David ran, and stood over the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled.” I Samuel17:51 ASV
Illustration of David standing next to the giant body of Goliath, holding his head by the hair.
