And after this it came to pass, that David smote55 the Philistines, and subdued55 them: and David took4 Methegammah 522 4965 out of the hand of the Philistines.
And he smote55 Moab, and measured17 them with a line, casting them down53 to the ground; even with two lines measured17 he to put to death,53 and with one full line to keep alive.53 And [so] the Moabites became David's servants, [and] brought6 gifts.
David smote55 also Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went2 to recover53 his border at the river Euphrates.
And David took4 from him a thousand [chariots], and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: 7273 and David houghed17 all the chariot [horses], but reserved55 of them [for] an hundred chariots.
And when the Syrians of Damascus came4 to succour2 Hadadezer king of Zobah, David slew55 of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men.
Then David put4 garrisons in Syria of Damascus: and the Syrians became servants to David, [and] brought6 gifts. And the LORD preserved55 David whithersoever he went.1
And David took4 the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought55 them to Jerusalem.
And from Betah, and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took1 exceeding much53 brass.
When Toi king of Hamath heard4 that David had smitten52 all the host of Hadadezer,
Then Toi sent4 Joram his son unto king David, to salute2 7965 him, and to bless15 him, because he had fought8 against Hadadezer, and smitten55 him: for Hadadezer had wars 4421 with Toi. And [Joram] brought with him vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of brass:
Which also king David did dedicate52 unto the LORD, with the silver and gold that he had dedicated52 of all nations which he subdued;14
Of Syria, and of Moab, and of the children of Ammon, and of the Philistines, and of Amalek, and of the spoil of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
And David gat4 [him] a name when he returned2 from smiting53 of the Syrians in the valley of salt, [being] eighteen 6240 thousand [men].
And he put4 garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom put1 he garrisons, and all they of Edom became David's servants. And the LORD preserved55 David whithersoever he went.1
And David reigned4 over all Israel; and David executed6 judgment and justice unto all his people.
And Joab the son of Zeruiah [was] over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud [was] recorder;56
And Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, [were] the priests; and Seraiah [was] the scribe;6
And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada [was over] both the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David's sons were chief rulers.
