The true height of Goliath is 12.9". 12 feet and 9 inches tall

"The Israelite's "cubit" at the time of Solomon was "25.2 inches."

The corect answer to the height of Goliath the Phillistine of Gath which is in the book of 1 Samuel 17:4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. According to the measurement of the time period, the measurement would be of the time of Solomom, because Solomon was David's son and King of all Israel after his father King David. Goliath was slain by David in 1 Samuel 17:49-50.
Do the math for Bible measurements yourself: six cubits plus one span
25.2" x 6 = 151.2 + 4" = 155.2"/12" = 12".9'
One Israelite cubit is 25.2" inches and multiply 6 cubits which equals 151.2 inches then divide 151.2" inches, which equals 12'.6" feet, then add one average span which is 4" inches, which equals 155.2" inches, then take a 155.2" inches divided by 12" inches, which is 1 foot and you come up with 12'.9" feet tall

Israelite's "cubit" at the time of Solomon was "25.2 inches." That of the Romans cubit was 17.5 inches (the size of a woman's arm breath)!But David was not a Roman, he was an Israelite. The royal cubit of the ancient Egyptians was about 20.7 inches (53.3 centimeters) long. The Cubit originates as early as 3000 BC, and was the distance from the elbow to the end of the middle finger, approx. 20"-28". The cubit was commonly used by many early people including: the Babylonians, the Egyptians, and the Israelites. Because everyone's cubit is different, the leader would have all of the workers use his standardized cubit rod (measuring reed) at construction sites. (Including building the ark of Noah's time)
The "span" (zeret) was the distance between the tip of the little finger and the tip of the thumb with the fingers straddled. The measurement of the handbreadth was the width of the four fingers (3"-5" on average), and the fingerbreadth was measured according to the width of the finger. (1/2"-1")There is also a short cubit which is used currently; and has been changed for modern day to be only 12-16 inches, and is false and misleading. Just get out a tape measure and measure your middle or index finger to the end of your elbow, see what you come up with. I assure it will not be 12-16" for the average adult. It will be 20"-28" (inches) for a grown man. (female cubits were not used)
Goliath of the tribe of the Phillistines (whom for the record; had 5 brothers) who were all giants. Goliath's oldest brother "King Og" is mentioned several times in the bible and his bed size in Dueteronomy 3:11 King James Bible
"For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, (9x 25.2=226.8/12"=18'9")and four cubits the breadth (4x25=100/12"=8'.3")of it, after the cubit of a man. (25.2 inches) the bed of King Og was 18 feet and 9 inches long and 8 feet and 3 inches wide. (18.9 x 8.3)

Note: These giant men were very possibly some of the men who built the ancient monolithic ruins like puma pinku, or Easter Island. These men were also known in ancient times as the nephilim. They are depicted all throughout the world in caves and stones and carvings of ancient ruins. People of today have corrupted the texts of newly translated bibles to confuse the truth of the ones written in Hebrew. (hence the term.."It's all Greek to me")
