You are not trained and do not have the skill
Or even the experience that you need.
Since you lack capability,
You will be sure to fail.
Neither do you have the strength,
The rigor that’s required.
You’ll risk not just your life,
But also your reputation,
And your family’s honor as well.
This position’s far too dangerous
For such a lightweight as you.
You’re young and immature for this pursuit
And blinded by your own conceit.
What’s more, you do not own
The necessary equipment.
You’re foolish to think it possible
That you’ll achieve success
Where so many others have failed.”
Then David picked up five smooth stones,
And taking his sling in his hand,
He approached the giant, Goliath,
The champion of the Philistines,
And in the name of the Lord God Almighty,
He killed him with just one stone.
