How Tall Was Goliath?

According to the Masoretic Text of the Old Testament¹ Goliath was six cubits and a span tall, 3.2 metres (9 feet, 6 inches), if measured by the 18 inch cubit, and 3.5 metres (just over 11 feet), if the 21 inch cubit is used. This is a height which is not only highly unlikely for any Iron Age man,² but far beyond what would have been considered a giant at the time.

David and the Head of Goliath of Gath

Everyone knows the story of David and Goliath.  Many are probably not aware, however, of what happened next.  That was the subject of James Hoffmeier’s recent lecture at the Bible and Archaeology Fest.  “Exploring David’s Strange Antics after Defeating Goliath” looked specifically at 1 Samuel 17:53-54:

Golgatha: The Word Symbolizes A Beautiful Reality!

In the Gospels we read that our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified for our sins at a place called “Golgotha.”

Myth-busting Gladwell’s Goliath

For many Bible students the workplace occupies much of our waking lives, and it is inevitable that the subjects of religion, belief and spirituality will eventually become a subject of discussion with co-workers. Whilst this is undoubtedly a fantastic opportunity to witness our faith, I often engage in such discourse with a level of apprehension.

God’s Story: David and Goliath

Once a young boy named David defeated a giant who was over nine feet tall. He fought Goliath when everybody else was too scared. This is the story of what happened when David agreed to take on Goliath (1 Samuel 17). And the way David rescued the Israelites gives us a sneak preview of the way God would send another young rescuer to free us all.We know that parts of God’s Story are hard to understand—or even agree with. The important thing to remember is that God loves all of us absolutely, no matter what we think or do.

The Young Hero and the Horrible Giant

“You’re only a little shepherd boy,” the king said, “and Goliath is a great soldier. How will you fight him?” “God will help me!” David said.

Giant (mythology)

Giants are the monsters of human appearance but prodigious size and strength common in the mythology and legends of many different cultures. The word giant, coined in 1297, was derived from the gigantes (Greek: γίγαντες) of Greek mythology.

Acromegaly

Acromegaly is a condition that results from excess growth hormone (GH) after the growth plates have closed. The initial symptom is typically enlargement of the hands and feet. There may also be enlargement of the forehead, jaw, and nose. Other symptoms may include joint pain, thicker skin, deepening of the voice, headaches, and problems with vision. Complications of the disease may include type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and high blood pressure.

Gigantism

Gigantism, also known as giantism (from Greek γίγας gigas, “giant,” plural γίγαντες gigantes), is a condition characterized by excessive growth and height significantly above average. In humans, this condition is caused by over-production of growth hormone in childhood resulting in people between 7 feet (2.13 m) and 9 feet (2.75 m) in height.

Goliath

Goliath (/gəˈlaɪəθ/; Hebrew: גָּלְיָת, Modern Golyat, Tiberian Golyāṯ; Arabic: ?????, Ǧālūt (Qur’anic term), ????? Ǧulyāt (Christian term)) of Gath (one of five city states of the Philistines) was a giant Philistine warrior defeated by the young David, the future king of Israel. The story is told in the Bible’s Books of Samuel (1 Samuel 17).
