1 Samuel 21:9—Was Goliath’s armor kept in David’s tent or in Nob?

Problem: In this text the sword of Goliath was located in Nob (cf. v. 1). However, in 1 Samuel 17:54 it says David “put his [Goliath’s] armor in his tent.”

Solution: At first it was placed in his tent, but later it was taken to Nob. The two verses speak of different times.
