In my opinion, the two Bible passages most relevant to this question are 2 Samuel 21:18-22 and 1 Chronicles 20:5. The verse from 1 Chronicles states specifically that Lahmi was a brother of Goliath. The verses from 2 Samuel are somewhat more ambiguous, or open to interpretation, in this regard. However, the King James Version translation speaks of four brothers who were the sons of a man referred to in 2 Samuel 21:22 only as "the giant in Gath". One of these four brothers was Goliath. Another was named Saph (2 Samuel 21:18). One of the other two must have been Lahmi (per the verse from 1 Chronicles), and the fourth is unnamed. So, according to these verses, Goliath had a total of three brothers. David slew Goliath, and Goliath's three brothers were slain by Sibbechai the Hushathite (who slew Saph)(2 Samuel 21:18), Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim (who slew Lahmi)(2 Samuel 21:19), and David's nephew Jonathan, the son of David's brother Shimeah (2 Samuel 21:21). (The name of the brother of Goliath whom Jonathan killed is not given.)
