▼ Lit the bridle of the mother citycontrol of the chief city from the hand of the Philistines. 2 d He ▼ defeated f Moab, and measured them with the line, making them lie down on the ground; and he measured two lines to put to death and one full line to keep alive. And g the Moabites became servants to David h bringing tribute. 3 Then David ▼ defeated j Hadadezer, the son of Rehob king of Zobah, as k he went to restore his ▼
