David’s Military Victories

8After this, David defeated and subdued the Philistines by conquering Gath, their largest town.H310H1732H5221H6430H3665H1732H3947H4965H3027H6430 2David also conquered the land of Moab. He made the people lie down on the ground in a row, and he measured them off in groups with a length of rope. He measured off two groups to be executed for every one group to be spared. The Moabites who were spared became David's subjects and paid him tribute money.H5221H4124H4058H2256H7901H776H8147H2256H4058H4191H4393H2256H2421H4124H1732H5650H5375H4503 3David also destroyed the forces of Hadadezer son of Rehob, king of Zobah, when Hadadezer marched out to strengthen his control along the Euphrates River.H1732H5221H1909H1121H7340H4428H6678H3212H7725H3027H5104H6578 4David captured 1,000 chariots, 7,000 charioteers, and 20,000 foot soldiers. He crippled all the chariot horses except enough for 100 chariots.H1732H3920H505H7651H3967H6571H6242H505H376H7273H1732H6131H7393H3498H3967H7393 5When Arameans from Damascus arrived to help King Hadadezer, David killed 22,000 of them.H758H1834H935H5826H1909H4428H6678H1732H5221H758H8147H6242H505H376 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.H1732H7760H5333H758H1834H758H5650H1732H5375H4503H3068H3467H1732H1980 7David brought the gold shields of Hadadezer's officers to Jerusalem,H1732H3947H7982H2091H5650H1909H935H3389 8along with a large amount of bronze from Hadadezer's towns of Tebah and Berothai.H984H1268H5892H1909H4428H1732H3947H3966H7235H5178 9When King Toi of Hamath heard that David had destroyed the entire army of Hadadezer,H8583H4428H2574H8085H1732H5221H2428H1909 10he sent his son Joram to congratulate King David for his successful campaign. Hadadezer and Toi had been enemies and were often at war. Joram presented David with many gifts of silver, gold, and bronze.H8583H7971H3141H1121H4428H1732H7592H7965H1288H3898H1909H5221H1909H376H4421H8583H3027H3627H3701H3627H2091H3627H5178 11King David dedicated all these gifts to the LORD, as he did with the silver and gold from the other nations he had defeated -H4428H1732H6942H3068H3701H2091H6942H1471H3533 12from Edom, Moab, Ammon, Philistia, and Amalek - and from Hadadezer son of Rehob, king of Zobah.H758H4124H1121H5983H6430H6002H7998H1909H1121H7340H4428H6678 13So David became even more famous when he returned from destroying 18,000 Edomites in the Valley of Salt.H1732H6213H8034H7725H5221H758H1516H4417H8083H6240H505 14He placed army garrisons throughout Edom, and all the Edomites became David's subjects. In fact, the LORD made David victorious wherever he went.H7760H5333H123H123H7760H5333H123H1732H5650H3068H3467H1732H1980 15So David reigned over all Israel and did what was just and right for all his people.H1732H4427H3478H1732H6213H4941H6666H5971 16Joab son of Zeruiah was commander of the army. Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud was the royal historian.H3097H1121H6870H6635H3092H1121H286H2142 17Zadok son of Ahitub and Ahimelech son of Abiathar were the priests.
