Now after this it came to pass, that David smote55 the Philistines, and subdued55 them, and took4 Gath and her towns out of the hand of the Philistines.
And he smote55 Moab; and the Moabites became David's servants, [and] brought6 gifts.
And David smote55 Hadarezer king of Zobah unto Hamath, as he went2 to stablish53 his dominion by the river Euphrates.
And David took4 from him a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: 7273 David also houghed17 all the chariot [horses], but reserved55 of them an hundred chariots.
And when the Syrians of Damascus came4 to help2 Hadarezer king of Zobah, David slew55 of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men.
Then David put4 [garrisons] in Syriadamascus; 1834 and the Syrians became David's servants, [and] brought6 gifts. Thus the LORD preserved55 David whithersoever he went.1
And David took4 the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadarezer, and brought55 them to Jerusalem.
Likewise from Tibhath, and from Chun, cities of Hadarezer, brought1 David very much brass, wherewith Solomon made1 the brasen sea, and the pillars, and the vessels of brass.
Now when Tou king of Hamath heard4 how David had smitten52 all the host of Hadarezer king of Zobah;
He sent4 Hadoram his son to king David, to enquire2 of his welfare, and to congratulate15 him, because he had fought8 against Hadarezer, and smitten55 him; (for Hadarezer had war 4421 with Tou;) and [with him] all manner of vessels of gold and silver and brass.
Them also king David dedicated52 unto the LORD, with the silver and the gold that he brought1 from all [these] nations; from Edom, and from Moab, and from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines, and from Amalek.
Moreover Abishai the son of Zeruiah slew52 of the Edomites in the valley of salt eighteen 6240 thousand.
And he put4 garrisons in Edom; and all the Edomites became David's servants. Thus the LORD preserved55 David whithersoever he went.1
So David reigned4 over all Israel, and executed6 judgment and justice among all his people.
And Joab the son of Zeruiah [was] over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud, recorder.56
And Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Abimelech the son of Abiathar, [were] the priests; and Shavsha was scribe;6
And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada [was] over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and the sons of David [were] chief about the king.
