8 And aafter this it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them: and David took ||Metheg-ammah out of the hand of the Philistines. And bhe smote Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground; even with two lines measured he to put to death, and with one full line to keep alive. And so the Moabites cbecame David’s servants, and dbrought gifts. David smote also ||Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of eZobah, as he went fto recover his border at the river Euphrates. And David took ||from him a thousand ||chariots, and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: and David ghoughed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them for an hundred chariots. hAnd when the Syrians of Damascus came to succour Hadadezer king of Zobah, David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men. Then David put igarrisons in Syria of jDamascus: and the Syrians became servants to David, and brought gifts. kAnd the Lord preserved David whithersoever he went. And David took lthe shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem. And from ||Betah, and from ||Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass. When ||Toi king mof Hamath heard that David had smitten all the host of Hadadezer, 10 Then Toi sent ||Joram his son unto king David, to salute him, and to bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer, and smitten him: for Hadadezer had wars with Toi. And Joram brought with him vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of brass: 11 Which also king David ndid dedicate unto the Lord, with the silver and gold that he had dedicated of all nations which he subdued; 12 Of Syria, and of Moab, and oof the children of Ammon, and pof the Philistines, and qof Amalek, and of the spoil of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah. 13 And David gat him a name when he returned from smiting of the Syrians in rthe valley of salt, s||being eighteen thousand men. 14 And he put igarrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom put he igarrisons, and tall they of Edom became David’s servants. uAnd the Lord preserved David whithersoever he went.

15 And David reigned over all Israel; and David wexecuted judgment and justice unto all his people. 16 xAnd yJoab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and zJehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was ||recorder; 17 And aZadok the son of Ahitub, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, were the priests; and Seraiah was the ||scribe; 18 And bBenaiah the son of Jehoiada was cover both the dCherethites and the ePelethites; and David’s sons were ||chief rulers.
