Transcript of Biblical Allusions

David and Goliath
Goliath from the Philistines challenged the Israel army and said whoever loses would have to surrender their own people as slaves.
David happened to go to the Israelile camp to bring food for his brothers.
David therefor decided to go against Goliath himself and won by slinging one stone at Goliath's head and then cutting off his head with Goliath's own sword.
The underdog comes through and wins.

The Lord came after Cain and told him to lift up his head.
Noah and the Flood
God was displeased by the humans he put on earth because they were filling it with violence.
God felt Noah was a good man so he decided to let him live.

It rained for forty days and forty nights.
God realized that some people have some evil inside them but he would not punish everyone again.
