The Capture of Rabbah
(2 Samuel 12:26–31)

1And it will be at the time of the return of the year, at the time of the going forth of kings, and Joab will lead the power of the army, and he will destroy the land of the sons of Ammon, and he will come and press upon Rabbah: and David dwelt in Jerusalem. And Joab will strike Rabbah and destroy it. 2And David will take the crown of their king from off his head, and he will find the weight a talent of gold, and in it precious stone; and it will be upon David's head: and he brought forth the spoil of the city exceeding much. 3And he brought out the people that were in it, and he will contend with the saw and with threshing-sledges of iron, and with saws. And David will do thus to all the cities of the sons of Ammon. And David will turn back and all the people, to Jerusalem.

Battles against the Philistines
(2 Samuel 21:15–22)

4And it will be after this and war will stand up in Gezer with the rovers: then Sibbechai the Hushathite struck Sippai from the children of Rapha, and they will be subdued. 5And there will be yet war with the rovers; and Elhanan son of Jair will strike Lahmi the brother of Goliah the Gathite, and the wood of his spear as a weaver's beam. 6And there will be yet war in Gath; and there will be a man of measure, and his fingers six and six, twenty and four: and he also was born to Rapha. 7And he will reproach Israel, and Jonathan son of Shimea, David's brother, struck him. 8These were born to Rapha in Gath; and they will fall by the hand of David and by the hand of his servants.
