This is a picture of the Elah Valley where David stood and fought Goliath. When David first happened upon the situation, he was appalled that someone would dare blaspheme the name of the LORD – no matter how big and strong he was. Though all of Israel was afraid of Goliath (including the King), David was undaunted. Though his oldest brothers mocked and disrespected him for showing up, David did not stop asking why no one was standing up to Goliath. Even when King Saul was made aware of David’s strong words, he told David that he was incapable of fighting the giant.
