2 Samuel 21:20 speaks about a man of great stature that had 6 fingers on each hand and 6 toes with a total of 24 fingers and toes. this mans is sometimes confused with Goliath. but there should be no confusion. this man was killed by Jonathan the son of Shimea, David's brother. so it is unknown if Goliath had 6 fingers.

He likely had five on each foot. Although, The Bible indicates his son had six toes on each foot, and six fingers on each hand. It is a condition called polydactyly. I Chron. 6:20.

Who is stronger Bane or Goliath?

Bane. Bane had a venom but Goliath fought David as a giant. Goliath is weaker. Bane is smarter. Plus, Bane could wreck Goliath's armor. Goliath is even worse. If Goliath's armor is wrecked, then Bane could tear up his hair and knock Goliath out for 3 days. Bane is better. Goliath can try to cut his head off. But Bane could wreck Goliath's sword. Goliath is the coward.
