1 Chronicles 20:1-3

The Capture of Rabbah

1 aIn the spring of the year, the time when kings go out to battle, Joab led out the army and ravaged the country of the Ammonites and came and besieged Rabbah. But David remained at Jerusalem. And bJoab struck down Rabbah and overthrew it. 2 cAnd David took the crown of their king from his head. He found that it weighed a talent
A  talent was about 75 pounds or 34 kilograms
of gold, and in it was a precious stone. And it was placed on David’s head. And he brought out the spoil of the city, a very great amount.
3And he brought out the people who were in it and set them to labor
Compare 2 Samuel 12:31; Hebrew he sawed
fwith saws and iron picks and axes.
Compare 2 Samuel 12:31; Hebrew saws
And thus David did to all the cities of the Ammonites. Then David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.
