2 Samuel 8 ©
1 David subdueth the Philistines, and maketh the Moabites tributary. 3 He smiteth Hadadezer and the Syrians. 9 Toi king of Hamath sendeth his son with presents to bless David; who dedicateth the presents, and the spoil which he had taken, to God. 14 He putteth garrisons in Edom. 15 His good reign; a list of his principal officers.
AND after athis it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them: and David took 1Metheg-ammah out of the hand of the Philistines.
And he bsmote Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground; even cwith two lines measured he to put to death, and with one full line to keep alive. And so the Moabites became David's servants, and dbrought gifts.
Then kDavid put garrisons in Syria of lDamascus: and the Syrians became servants to David, and brought gifts. And the LORD preserved David whithersoever he went.
And David took mthe shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.
And nfrom Betah, and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass.
Then Toi sent 4Joram his son unto king David, to 5salute him, and to bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer, and smitten him: for Hadadezer 6had wars with Toi. And Joram brought 7with him vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of brass:
Which qalso king David rdid dedicate unto the LORD, with the silver and gold that he had dedicated of all nations which he subdued;
Of Syria, and of Moab, and sof the children of Ammon, and tof the Philistines, and uof Amalek, and of the spoil of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
And David v*gat him a name when he returned from 8smiting of the Syrians in the wvalley of salt, being eighteen thousand men.
