1 Samuel 17:29 Parallel
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Whilst he was talking with them, the champion (middle-man) Goliath drew near, and spoke according to those words (the words contained in 1 Samuel 17:8.), and David heard it. פל ממּערות is probably an error for פל ממּערכות (Keri, lxx, Vulg.; cf. 1 Samuel 17:26). If the Chethibh were the proper reading, it would suggest an Arabic word signifying a crowd of men (Dietrich on Ges. Lex.).
