|"David with the head of Goliath" by Caravaggio, 1610|
They repeated to him what they had been saying and told him, “This is what will be done for the man who kills him.”
Meanwhile, the Philistine, with his shield bearer in front of him, kept coming closer to David. He looked David over and saw that he was little more than a boy, glowing with health and handsome, and he despised him. He said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. “Come here,” he said, “and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals!”
David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem; he put the Philistine’s weapons in his own tent.
