on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five

javelin was slung on his back. His spear shaft was like a weaver's
rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels. His shield

Philistine, and are you not the servants of Saul? Choose a man and
have him come down to me." On hearing the Philistine's words, Saul
and all the Israelites were dismayed and terrified. (1 Sam 17:4-8,11 NIV)
