David Didn't Kill Goliath In The Bible, It Has Been Proved By Scriptures 2Samuel 21:19 NIV BIBLE

Was it David or Elhanan who killed Goliath

1Samuel 17:50 and 2Samuel 2:19 

1. David did, 1Samuel 17: 50, "Thus David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and he struck the Philistine and killed him; but there was no sword in David's hand." 

2. Elhanan did, 2 Samuel 21:19, “ And there was war with the Philistines again at Gob, and Elhanan the son of Jaare–oregim the Bethlehemite killed Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a Weaver's beam."

The answer lies in two areas. 1 Chronicles 20:5 also says that, “ And there was war with the Philistines again, and Elhanan the son of Hair Killed Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a Weaver's beam.”

So does it mean that, David did not kill Goliath or what?
