And David called one of the young men and said, “Go near and attack him!” And he struck him so that he died. Bible see other translations

“attack him!” The Hebrew, “fall on him,” is an idiom for killing him. Some modern versions (cp. CSB, CJB, ESV) translate the meaning of the idiom for easier English reading (cp. HCSB: “Come here and kill him!”).
