After Samuel had the Israelites destroy their idols and return to the Lord, they were attacked by the Philistines. They battled with the Philistines for many years, culminating in David's eventual victory over Goliath years down the road after he was anointed by Samuel.
Since the Israelites had obeyed God, He created such loud and terrifying thunder that the Philistines were thrown into an extreme panic before the battle had even begun. Their fear allowed Israel to easily defeat them.
The two things I emphasized in this picture are the Philistine's confusion, and their armor. They are running away in all different directions, every man for himself. I wanted them to pop from the gray landscape so I gave them golden armor shaded with a pastel brush to give it texture.
