Shields and Bucklers
by Wayne Blank
"For The Lord giveth wisdom ... He is a buckler to them that walk uprightly"
Goliath was very heavily body-armored, but he hit the ground, dead, wearing his physical armor because he came up against someone who was wearing the "armor" of God:
"Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and were gathered together at Shochoh, which belongeth to Judah, and pitched between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephesdammim. And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered together, and pitched by the valley of Elah, and set the battle in array against the Philistines. And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them."
The Lord is a shield, a buckler, to His people:
"As for God, His way is perfect; the word of The Lord is tried: He is a buckler to all them that trust in Him." (2 Samuel 22:31 KJV)
