1 Chronicles 20

War with Philistine Giants

a Then it happened
Lit at the return of the year
in the spring, at the time when kings go out to battle, that Joab led out the army and ravaged the land of the sons of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David stayed at Jerusalem. And c Joab struck Rabbah and overthrew it.
d David took the crown of

their king from his head, and he found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there was a precious stone in it; and it was placed on David’s head. And he brought out the spoil of the city, a very great amount.
He brought out the people who were in it, f and cut them with saws and with sharp instruments and with axes. And thus David did to all the cities of the sons of Ammon. Then David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.

g Now it came about after this, that war

giants, and they were subdued.
And there was war with the Philistines again, and Elhanan the son of l Jair

killed Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the n shaft of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.
Again there was war at Gath, where there was a man of great stature who had twenty-four fingers and toes, six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot; and he also was descended from the giants. When he taunted Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea, David’s brother

killed him.
These were descended from the giants in Gath, and they fell by the hand of David and by the hand of his servants.
