The Mighty Sling of David

The Old Greek version of the story of David and Goliath has a rather interesting addition (in bold below):

And Dauid stretched out his hand into the bag and took out from there one stone and slung it and struck the allophyle on his forehead, and the stone penetrated through the helmet into his forehead, and he fell on his face on the ground. (NETS)

Now that is one hard slung rock!
