(1 Samuel 17:50) - "Thus David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and he struck the Philistine and killed him; but there was no sword in David's hand."

(2 Sam. 21:19)- "And there was war with the Philistines again at Gob, and Elhanan the son of Jaare-oregim the Bethlehemite killed Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver's beam."

Many of you already know the answer. The problem is, how many other copiest errors are there? And if David is called Elhanan in records outside Israel, where do we from here? As mentioned, the answers serve to verify the details of the Books of Kings.
