1 Chronicles 11:23 [NIV] ~ And he struck down an Egyptian who was five cubits tall. Although the Egyptian had a spear like a weaver's rod in his hand, Benaiah went against him with a club. He snatched the spear from the Egyptian's hand and killed him with his own spear.
What is so scary about a spear like a weaver's rod? Why weaver's rod? It seems pretty tame to me.
