| 1 And it came to pass, at the time of the return of the year, at the
time when kings go out to battle, that Joab led forth the army, and
wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah.
But David tarried at Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rabbah, and overthrew it.
2 And David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it
to weigh a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it; and it was
set upon David's head: and he brought forth the spoil of the city, exceeding
much. 3 And he brought forth the people that were therein, and cut
them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. And thus did
David unto all the cities of the children of Ammon. And David and all the
people returned to Jerusalem.|
4 And it came to pass after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the
Philistines: then Sibbecai the Hushathite slew Sippai, of the sons of the
giant; and they were subdued. 5 And there was again war with the
Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath
the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam. 6 And
there was again war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers
and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each
foot; and he also was born unto the giant. 7 And when he defied
Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea David's brother slew him. 8 These were
born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the
hand of his servants.
