1 Samuel 17:5-7 World English Bible (WEB)

He had a helmet of bronze on his head, and he wore a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels[a] of bronze. He had bronze shin armor on his legs and a bronze javelin between his shoulders. The staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam; and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron.[b] His shield bearer went before him.
