David Captures Rabbah

20In the spring of the year, when kings normally go out to war, Joab led the Israelite army in successful attacks against the land of the Ammonites. In the process he laid siege to the city of Rabbah. However, David stayed behind in Jerusalem.H6256H8141H8666H6256H4428H3318H3097H5090H2428H6635H7843H776H1121H5983H935H6696H7237H1732H3427H3389H3097H5221H7237H2040 2When David arrived at Rabbah, he removed the crown from the king's head, and it was placed on his own head. The crown was made of gold and set with gems, and he found that it weighed seventy-five pounds. David took a vast amount of plunder from the city.H1732H3947H5850H4428H7218H4672H4948H3603H2091H3368H68H1732H7218H3318H3966H7235H7998H5892 3He also made slaves of the people of Rabbah and forced them to labor with saws, iron picks, and iron axes. That is how David dealt with the people of all the Ammonite towns. Then David and all the army returned to Jerusalem.H3318H5971H7787H4050H2757H1270H4050H6213H1732H5892H1121H5983H1732H5971H7725H3389

Battles against Philistine Giants

4After this, war broke out with the Philistines at Gezer. As they fought, Sibbecai from Hushah killed Saph, a descendant of the giants, and so the Philistines were subdued.H310H5975H4421H1507H6430H227H5444H2843H5221H5598H3211H7497H3665 5During another battle with the Philistines, Elhanan son of Jair killed Lahmi, the brother of Goliath of Gath. The handle of Lahmi's spear was as thick as a weaver's beam!H4421H6430H445H1121H3265H5221H3902H251H1555H1663H2595H6086H707H4500 6In another battle with the Philistines at Gath, they encountered a huge man with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four in all, who was also a descendant of the giants.H4421H1661H376H4060H676H676H702H6242H8337H8337H3205H7497 7But when he defied and taunted Israel, he was killed by Jonathan, the son of David's brother Shimea.H2778H3478H3083H1121H8092H1732H251H5221 8These Philistines were descendants of the giants of Gath, but David and his warriors killed them.H411H3205H7497H1661H5307H3027H1732H3027H5650
