balebayfr. var. ofbayyabeyna sling used to fling stonesIn English, there is a difference between a slingshot and a sling. A slingshot has a forked handle usually made of wood with a band of rubber attached to the top of the fork prongs. A slingshot is used for shooting small stones. Like a slingshot, a sling is also used for throwing stones. It consists of a small piece of leather shaped like a pouch with two straps attached to the ends of the leather pouch. The person using a sling, places a stone in the leather pouch and swings the sling around and around by holding on to the straps. When this person releases his hold on one of the straps, the stone is propelled by centrifugal force toward the target.Hanneya nengapputan David etan ni keet-etengan ni tuud Pilistia e eleg tu usalen hu ispadah nem ebuh hu balebay tu.
