The Philistine army has 30,000 chariots (some manuscripts say 3000), 6000 horsemen and too many foot soldiers to count. Saul has 600 in his army. So why would Saul’s son want to go and provoke a fight? We may never know, but that is precisely what Jonathan and his armor-bearer do. These two soldiers from a ragtag army scramble up a cliff face to meet their foe. How pathetic they must’ve looked from the viewpoint of any bystander. Yet, they were doing acts of faith.
