Superficially there seems to be a contradiction with 2 Samuel 21:19, where it says that a man named Elhanan killed Goliath. However, the translators quite properly inserted the fact that Elhanan killed "the brother of Goliath the Gittite," based on the fact that this is explicitly stated in 1 Chronicles 20:5, even naming the giant slain by Elhanan as "Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite." Most likely an early copyist somehow omitted the words "the brother of" from 2 Samuel 21:19.
