1 Chronicles 18
David’s Kingdom Strengthened1 Now after this a it came about that David ▼
▼ Lit smote, and so in vv 1-3defeated the Philistines and subdued them and took Gath and its towns from the hand of the Philistines. 2 He defeated Moab, and the Moabites became servants to David, bringing tribute. 3 David also defeated Hadadezer king of Zobah as far as Hamath, as he went to establish his ▼
▼ Lit handrule to the Euphrates River. 4 David took from him 1,000 chariots and 7,000 horsemen and 20,000 foot soldiers, and David hamstrung all the chariot horses, but reserved enough of them for 100 chariots. 5 When the Arameans of ▼
▼ Heb DarmeseqDamascus came to help Hadadezer king e of Zobah, David ▼
▼ Lit smotekilled 22,000 men of the Arameans. 6 Then David put garrisons among the Arameans of ▼
▼ Heb DarmeseqDamascus; and the Arameans became servants to David, bringing tribute. And the Lord helped David wherever he went. 7 David took the shields of gold which were ▼
▼ Lit oncarried by the servants of Hadadezer and brought them to Jerusalem. 8 Also from ▼
▼ In 2 Sam 8:8, BetahTibhath and from Cun, cities of Hadadezer, David took a very large amount of bronze, with which j Solomon made the bronze sea and the pillars and the bronze utensils. 9 Now when ▼
▼ In 2 Sam 8:9, ToiTou king of Hamath heard that David had ▼
▼ Lit smittendefeated all the army of Hadadezer king of Zobah, 10 he sent ▼
▼ In 2 Sam 8:10, JoramHadoram his son to King David to ▼
▼ Lit ask him of his welfaregreet him and to bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer and had ▼
▼ Lit smittendefeated him; for Hadadezer had been at war with Tou. And Hadoram brought all kinds of articles of gold and silver and bronze. 11 King David also dedicated these to the Lord with the silver and the gold which he had carried away from all the nations: from Edom, Moab, the sons of Ammon, the Philistines, and from Amalek. 12 Moreover Abishai the son of Zeruiah ▼
▼ Lit smotedefeated 18,000 Edomites in the Valley of Salt. 13 Then he put garrisons in Edom, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And the Lord helped David wherever he went. 14 So David reigned over all Israel; and he ▼
▼ Lit was doingadministered justice and righteousness for all his people. 15 r Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the army, and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder; 16 and Zadok the son of Ahitub and Abimelech the son of Abiathar were priests, and Shavsha was secretary; 17 and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites, and the sons of David were chiefs at the king’s side.
