1And it comes to pass after this, that David strikes the Philistines, and humbles them, and takes Gath and its small towns out of the hand of the Philistines; 2and he strikes Moab, and the Moabites are servants to David, bringing a present.

3And David strikes Hadarezer king of Zobah, at Hamath, in his going to establish his power by the Euphrates River, 4and David captures from him one thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen, and David utterly destroys all the chariots, and leaves of them [only] one hundred chariots.

5And Aram of Damascus comes to give help to Hadarezer king of Zobah, and David strikes twenty-two thousand men in Aram, 6and David puts [garrisons] in Aram of Damascus, and the Arameans are for servants to David, carrying a present, and YHWH gives salvation to David wherever he has gone. 7And David takes the shields of gold that have been on the servants of Hadarezer, and brings them to Jerusalem; 8and from Tibhath, and from Chun, cities of Hadarezer, David has taken very much bronze; with it Solomon has made the bronze sea, and the pillars, and the vessels of bronze.

9And Tou king of Hamath hears that David has struck the whole force of Hadarezer king of Zobah, 10and he sends his son Hadoram to King David, to ask of him of peace, and to bless him, because that he has fought against Hadarezer and strikes him (for Hadarezer had been a man of wars with Tou); and [with him were] all kinds of vessels, of gold, and silver, and bronze; 11King David has also sanctified them to YHWH with the silver and the gold that he has taken from all the nations, from Edom, and from Moab, and from the sons of Ammon, and from the Philistines, and from Amalek.

12And Abishai son of Zeruiah has struck Edom in the Valley of Salt—eighteen thousand, 13and he puts garrisons in Edom, and all the Edomites are servants to David; and YHWH saves David wherever he has gone.

14And David reigns over all Israel, and he is doing judgment and righteousness to all his people, 15and Joab son of Zeruiah [is] over the host, and Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud [is] remembrancer, 16and Zadok son of Ahitub and Abimelech son of Abiathar [are] priests, and Shavsha [is] scribe, 17and Benaiah son of Jehoiada [is] over the Cherethite and the Pelethite, and the chief sons of David [are] at the hand of the king.
