He crippled all the chariot horses except enough for 100 chariots.H1732H3920H505H7393H7651H505H6571H6242H505H376H7273H1732H6131H7393H3498H3967H7393 5When Arameans from Damascus arrived to help King Hadadezer, David killed 22,000 of them.H758H1834H935H5826H1928H4428H6678H1732H5221H758H8147H6242H505H376 6Then he placed several army garrisons in Damascus, the Aramean capital, and the Arameans became David's subjects and paid him tribute money. So the LORD made David victorious wherever he went.H1732H7760H758H1834H758H1732H5650H5375H4503H3068H3467H1732H1980 7David brought the gold shields of Hadadezer's officers to Jerusalem,H1732H3947H7982H2091H5650H1928H935H3389 8along with a large amount of bronze from Hadadezer's towns of Tebah and Cun.

In fact, the LORD made David victorious wherever he went.H7760H5333H123H123H1732H5650H3068H3467H1732H1980 14So David reigned over all Israel and did what was just and right for all his people.H1732H4427H3478H6213H4941H6666H5971 15Joab son of Zeruiah was commander of the army.
