"David killed Goliath"

In Chapter XVII from first book of Samuel is reported as David slew the giant Goliath. In the second book of Samuel (21, 19) reads the contrary: "And then Elchanan the son of Jair from Bethlehem, bring down the Goliath from Got, whose spear was as big as a tree". Scholars assumes that the second text was written in 950 BC, while the first dates to the 6th century BC, which means that the true hero was Elchanan and only later was replaced with the famous David.
