    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:5

    Y traía un almete de acero en su cabeza, e iba vestido con corazas de planchas; y era el peso de las corazas cinco mil siclos de bronce.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 17:5

    Verse 5. He was armed with a
    coat of mail] The words in the original, yqq wr shiryon kaskassim, mean a coat of mail formed of plates of brass overlapping each other, like the scales of a fish, or tiles of a house.

    This is the true notion of the original terms.

    With thin plates of brass or iron, overlapping each other, were the ancient coats of mail formed in different countries; many formed in this way may be now seen in the tower of London.

    The weight-five thousand shekels] Following Bishop Cumberland's tables, and rating the shekel at two hundred and nineteen grains, and the Roman ounce at four hundred and thirty-eight grains, we find that Goliath's coat of mail, weighing five thousand shekels, was exactly one hundred and fifty-six pounds four ounces avoirdupois. A vast weight for a coat of mail, but not all out of proportion to the man.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. And he had an helmet of brass upon his head , etc.] This was a piece of armour, which covered the head in the day of battle; these were usually made of the skins of beasts, of leather, and which were covered with plates of iron, or brass; and sometimes made of all iron, or of brass f349 ; as this seems to have been: and he was armed with a coat of mail ; which reached from the neck to the middle, and consisted of various plates of brass laid on one another, like the scales of fishes f350 , so close together that no dart or arrow could pierce between: and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass : which made one hundred and fifty six pounds and a quarter of zygostatic or avoirdupois weight; and therefore he must be a very strong man indeed to carry such a weight. So the armour of the ancient Romans were all of brass, as this mans; their helmets, shields, greaves, coats of mail, all of brass, as Livy says f351 ; and so in the age of the Grecian heroes f352 .

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 -
    Men so entirely depend upon God in all things, that when he withdraw his help, the most valiant and resolute cannot find their hearts of hands, as daily experience shows.
