KING ACHISH is the leader of the Philistines, a violent, battle-hardened people who are the enemy of Israel. And indeed, Achish has long fought to capture the land and trade routes he feels his people rightly deserve. Achish knows that the Philistine forces outnumber the Israelites considerably, and their weaponry is far superior, due to their master of iron-making. With his silver tongue and shrewd tactics, Achish is able to trade this iron to warring neighboring tribes. The world’s thirst for blood has made him a very rich man. With all of this going for him, will Achish finally realize his plan to destroy Israel once and for all?
