2 Samuel 8:1--10:19

And after
<0310>
this it came to pass, that David
<01732>
smote
<05221> (8686)
the Philistines
<06430>_,
and subdued
<03665> (8686)
them: and David
<01732>
took
<03947> (8799)
Methegammah
<04965>
out of the hand
<03027>
of the Philistines
<06430>_.
{Methegammah: or, the bridle of Ammah}
And he smote
<05221> (8686)
Moab
<04124>_,
and measured
<04058> (8762)
them with a line
<02256>_,
casting them down
<07901> (8687)
to the ground
<0776>_;
even with two
<08147>
lines
<02256>
measured
<04058> (8762)
he to put to death
<04191> (8687)_,
and with one full
<04393>
line
<02256>
to keep alive
<02421> (8687)_.
And [so] the Moabites
<04124>
became David's
<01732>
servants
<05650>_,
[and] brought
<05375> (8802)
gifts
<04503>_.
David
<01732>
smote
<05221> (8686)
also Hadadezer
<01909>_,
the son
<01121>
of Rehob
<07340>_,
king
<04428>
of Zobah
<06678>_,
as he went
<03212> (8800)
to recover
<07725> (8687)
his border
<03027>
at the river
<05104>
Euphrates
<06578>_.
{Hadadezer: or, Hadarezer}
And David
<01732>
took
<03920> (8799)
from him a thousand
<0505>
[chariots], and seven
<07651>
hundred
<03967>
horsemen
<06571>_,
and twenty
<06242>
thousand
<0505>
footmen
<0376> <07273>_:
and David
<01732>
houghed
<06131> (8762)
all the chariot
<07393>
[horses], but reserved
<03498> (8686)
of them [for] an hundred
<03967>
chariots
<07393>_.
{from...: or, of his chariots}
And when the Syrians
<0758>
of Damascus
<01834>
came
<0935> (8799)
to succour
<05826> (8800)
Hadadezer
<01909>
king
<04428>
of Zobah
<06678>_,
David
<01732>
slew
<05221> (8686)
of the Syrians
<0758>
two
<08147>
and twenty
<06242>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>_.
Then David
<01732>
put
<07760> (8799)
garrisons
<05333>
in Syria
<0758>
of Damascus
<01834>_:
and the Syrians
<0758>
became servants
<05650>
to David
<01732>_,
[and] brought
<05375> (8802)
gifts
<04503>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
preserved
<03467> (8686)
David
<01732>
whithersoever he went
<01980> (8804)_.
And David
<01732>
took
<03947> (8799)
the shields
<07982>
of gold
<02091>
that were on the servants
<05650>
of Hadadezer
<01909>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
them to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And from Betah
<0984>_,
and from Berothai
<01268>_,
cities
<05892>
of Hadadezer
<01909>_,
king
<04428>
David
<01732>
took
<03947> (8804)
exceeding
<03966>
much
<07235> (8687)
brass
<05178>_.
When Toi
<08583>
king
<04428>
of Hamath
<02574>
heard
<08085> (8799)
that David
<01732>
had smitten
<05221> (8689)
all the host
<02428>
of Hadadezer
<01909>_,
Then Toi
<08583>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Joram
<03141>
his son
<01121>
unto king
<04428>
David
<01732>_,
to salute
<07592> (8800) <07965>
him, and to bless
<01288> (8763)
him, because he had fought
<03898> (8738)
against Hadadezer
<01909>_,
and smitten
<05221> (8686)
him: for Hadadezer
<01909>
had wars
<0376> <04421>
with Toi
<08583>_.
And [Joram] brought with him
<03027>
vessels
<03627>
of silver
<03701>_,
and vessels
<03627>
of gold
<02091>_,
and vessels
<03627>
of brass
<05178>_:
{Joram: also called, Hadoram} {salute...: Heb. ask him of peace} {had wars...: Heb. was a man of wars with} {brought...: Heb. in his hand were}
Which also king
<04428>
David
<01732>
did dedicate
<06942> (8689)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
with the silver
<03701>
and gold
<02091>
that he had dedicated
<06942> (8689)
of all nations
<01471>
which he subdued
<03533> (8765)_;
Of Syria

<01909>_,
son
<01121>
of Rehob
<07340>_,
king
<04428>
of Zobah
<06678>_.
And David
<01732>
gat
<06213> (8799)
[him] a name
<08034>
when he returned
<07725> (8800)
from smiting
<05221> (8687)
of the Syrians
<0758>
in the valley
<01516>

<04417>_,
[being] eighteen
<08083> <06240>

<0505>

And he put

<05333>
in Edom
<0123>_;
throughout all Edom
<0123>
put
<07760> (8804)
he garrisons
<05333>_,
and all they of Edom
<0123>
became David's
<01732>
servants
<05650>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
preserved
<03467> (8686)
David
<01732>
whithersoever he went
<01980> (8804)_.
And David
<01732>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
over all Israel
<03478>_;
and David
<01732>
executed
<06213> (8802)
judgment
<04941>
and justice
<06666>
unto all his people
<05971>_.
And Joab
<03097>
the son
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>
[was] over the host
<06635>_;
and Jehoshaphat
<03092>
the son
<01121>
of Ahilud
<0286>
[was] recorder
<02142> (8688)_;
{recorder: or, remembrancer, or, writer of chronicles}
And Zadok
<06659>
the son
<01121>
of Ahitub
<0285>_,

{scribe: or, secretary}
And Benaiah
<01141>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>
[was over] both the Cherethites
<03774>
and the Pelethites
<06432>_;
and David's
<01732>
sons
<01121>
were chief rulers
<03548>_.
{chief rulers: or, princes}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Is there yet
<03426>
any that is left
<03498> (8738)
of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>_,
that I may shew
<06213> (8799)
him kindness
<02617>
for Jonathan's
<03083>
sake?
And [there was] of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>
a servant
<05650>
whose name
<08034>
[was] Ziba
<06717>_.
And when they had called
<07121> (8799)
him unto David
<01732>_,
the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, [Art] thou Ziba
<06717>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thy servant
<05650>
[is he].
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is] there not
<0657>
yet any
<0376>
of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>_,
that I may shew
<06213> (8799)
the kindness
<02617>
of God
<0430>
unto him? And Ziba
<06717>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Jonathan
<03083>
hath yet a son
<01121>_,
[which is] lame
<05223>
on [his] feet
<07272>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Where
<0375>
[is] he? And Ziba
<06717>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Behold, he [is] in the house
<01004>
of Machir
<04353>_,
the son
<01121>
of Ammiel
<05988>_,
in Lodebar
<03810>_.
Then king
<04428>
David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and fetched
<03947> (8799)
him out of the house
<01004>
of Machir
<04353>_,
the son
<01121>
of Ammiel
<05988>_,
from Lodebar
<03810>_.
Now when Mephibosheth
<04648>_,
the son
<01121>
of Jonathan
<03083>_,
the son
<01121>
of Saul
<07586>_,
was come
<0935> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
he fell
<05307> (8799)
on his face
<06440>_,
and did reverence
<07812> (8691)_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Mephibosheth
<04648>_.
And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold thy servant
<05650>_!
{Mephibosheth: also called Meribbaal}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Fear
<03372> (8799)
not: for I will surely
<06213> (8800)
shew
<06213> (8799)
thee kindness
<02617>
for Jonathan
<03083>
thy father's
<01>
sake, and will restore
<07725> (8689)
thee all the land
<07704>
of Saul
<07586>
thy father
<01>_;
and thou shalt eat
<0398> (8799)
bread
<03899>
at my table
<07979>
continually
<08548>_.
And he bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
What [is] thy servant
<05650>_,
that thou shouldest look
<06437> (8804)
upon such a dead
<04191> (8801)
dog
<03611>
as I [am]?
Then the king
<04428>
called
<07121> (8799)
to Ziba
<06717>_,
Saul's
<07586>
servant
<05288>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, I have given
<05414> (8804)
unto thy master's
<0113>
son
<01121>
all that pertained
<01961> (8804)
to Saul
<07586>
and to all his house
<01004>_.
Thou therefore, and thy sons
<01121>_,
and thy servants
<05650>_,
shall till
<05647> (8804)
the land
<0127>
for him, and thou shalt bring
<0935> (8689)
in [the fruits], that thy master's
<0113>
son
<01121>
may have food
<03899>
to eat
<0398> (8804)_:
but Mephibosheth
<04648>
thy master's
<0113>
son
<01121>
shall eat
<0398> (8799)
bread
<03899>
alway
<08548>
at my table
<07979>_.
Now Ziba
<06717>
had fifteen
<02568> <06240>
sons
<01121>
and twenty
<06242>
servants
<05650>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Ziba
<06717>
unto the king
<04428>_,
According to all that my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
hath commanded
<06680> (8762)
his servant
<05650>_,
so shall thy servant
<05650>
do
<06213> (8799)_.
As for Mephibosheth
<04648>_,
[said the king], he shall eat
<0398> (8802)
at my table
<07979>_,
as one
<0259>
of the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_.
And Mephibosheth
<04648>
had a young
<06996>
son
<01121>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Micha
<04316>_.
And all that dwelt
<04186>
in the house
<01004>
of Ziba
<06717>
[were] servants
<05650>
unto Mephibosheth
<04648>_.
So Mephibosheth
<04648>
dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for he did eat
<0398> (8802)
continually
<08548>
at the king's
<04428>
table
<07979>_;
and was lame
<06455>
on both
<08147>
his feet
<07272>_.
And it came to pass after this
<0310>_,
that the king
<04428>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
died
<04191> (8799)_,
and Hanun
<02586>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
David
<01732>_,
I will shew
<06213> (8799)
kindness
<02617>
unto Hanun
<02586>
the son
<01121>
of Nahash
<05176>_,
as his father
<01>
shewed
<06213> (8804)
kindness
<02617>
unto me. And David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)
to comfort
<05162> (8763)
him by the hand
<03027>
of his servants
<05650>
for his father
<01>_.
And David's
<01732>
servants
<05650>
came
<0935> (8799)
into the land
<0776>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_.
And the princes
<08269>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Hanun
<02586>
their lord
<0113>_,
Thinkest
<05869>
thou that David
<01732>
doth honour
<03513> (8764)
thy father
<01>_,
that he hath sent
<07971> (8804)
comforters
<05162> (8764)
unto thee? hath not David
<01732>
[rather] sent
<07971> (8804)
his servants
<05650>
unto thee, to
<05668>
search
<02713> (8800)
the city
<05892>_,
and to spy it out
<07270> (8763)_,
and to overthrow
<02015> (8800)
it? {Thinkest...: Heb. In thy eyes doth David}
Wherefore Hanun
<02586>
took
<03947> (8799)
David's
<01732>
servants
<05650>_,
and shaved off
<01548> (8762)
the one half
<02677>
of their beards
<02206>_,
and cut off
<03772> (8799)
their garments
<04063>
in the middle
<02677>_,
[even] to their buttocks
<08357>_,
and sent them away
<07971> (8762)_.
When they told
<05046> (8686)
[it] unto David
<01732>_,
he sent
<07971> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
them, because the men
<0582>
were greatly
<03966>
ashamed
<03637> (8737)_:
and the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Tarry
<03427> (8798)
at Jericho
<03405>
until your beards
<02206>
be grown
<06779> (8762)_,
and [then] return
<07725> (8804)_.
And when the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that they stank
<0887> (8738)
before David
<01732>_,
the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
sent
<07971> (8799)
and hired
<07936> (8799)
the Syrians
<0758>
of Bethrehob
<01050>_,
and the Syrians
<0758>
of Zoba
<06678>_,
twenty
<06242>
thousand
<0505>
footmen
<07273>_,
and of king
<04428>
Maacah
<04601>
a thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>_,
and of Ishtob
<0382>
twelve
<06240> <08147>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>_.
{Ishtob: or, the men of Tob}
And when David
<01732>
heard
<08085> (8799)
of [it], he sent
<07971> (8799)
Joab
<03097>_,
and all the host
<06635>
of the mighty men
<01368>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
came out
<03318> (8799)_,
and put the battle
<04421>
in array
<06186> (8799)
at the entering in
<06607>
of the gate
<08179>_:
and the Syrians
<0758>
of Zoba
<06678>_,
and of Rehob
<07340>_,
and Ishtob
<0382>_,
and Maacah
<04601>_,
[were] by themselves
<0905>
in the field
<07704>_.
When Joab
<03097>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that the front
<06440>
of the battle
<04421>
was against him before
<06440>
and behind
<0268>_,
he chose
<0977> (8799)
of all the choice
<0977> (8803)
[men] of Israel
<03478>_,
and put [them] in array
<06186> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
the Syrians
<0758>_:
And the rest
<03499>
of the people
<05971>
he delivered
<05414> (8804)
into the hand
<03027>
of Abishai
<052>
his brother
<0251>_,
that he might put [them] in array
<06186> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
If the Syrians
<0758>
be too strong
<02388> (8799)
for me, then thou shalt help
<03444>
me: but if the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
be too strong
<02388> (8799)
for thee, then I will come
<01980> (8804)
and help
<03467> (8687)
thee.
Be of good courage
<02388> (8798)_,
and let us play the men
<02388> (8691)
for our people
<05971>_,
and for the cities
<05892>
of our God
<0430>_:
and the LORD
<03068>
do
<06213> (8799)
that which seemeth
<05869>
him good
<02896>_.
And Joab
<03097>
drew nigh
<05066> (8799)_,
and the people
<05971>
that [were] with him, unto the battle
<04421>
against the Syrians
<0758>_:
and they fled
<05127> (8799)
before
<06440>
him.
And when the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
saw
<07200> (8804)
that the Syrians
<0758>
were fled
<05127> (8804)_,
then fled
<05127> (8799)
they also before
<06440>
Abishai
<052>_,
and entered
<0935> (8799)
into the city
<05892>_.
So Joab
<03097>
returned
<07725> (8799)
from the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And when the Syrians
<0758>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that they were smitten
<05062> (8738)
before
<06440>
Israel
<03478>_,
they gathered
<0622> (8735)
themselves together
<03162>_.
And Hadarezer
<01928>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and brought out
<03318> (8686)
the Syrians
<0758>
that [were] beyond
<05676>
the river
<05104>_:
and they came
<0935> (8799)
to Helam
<02431>_;
and Shobach
<07731>
the captain
<08269>
of the host
<06635>
of Hadarezer
<01928>
[went] before
<06440>
them. {the river: that is, Euphrates} {Shobach: or, Shophach}
And when it was told
<05046> (8714)
David
<01732>_,
he gathered
<0622> (0)
all Israel
<03478>
together
<0622> (8799)_,
and passed over
<05674> (8799)
Jordan
<03383>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Helam
<02431>_.
And the Syrians
<0758>
set themselves in array
<06186> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
David
<01732>_,
and fought
<03898> (8735)
with him.
And the Syrians
<0758>
fled
<05127> (8799)
before
<06440>
Israel
<03478>_;
and David
<01732>
slew
<02026> (8799)
[the men of] seven
<07651>
hundred
<03967>
chariots
<07393>
of the Syrians
<0758>_,
and forty
<0705>
thousand
<0505>
horsemen
<06571>_,
and smote
<05221> (8689)
Shobach
<07731>
the captain
<08269>
of their host
<06635>_,
who died
<04191> (8799)
there. {horsemen: also called, footmen}
And when all the kings
<04428>
[that were] servants
<05650>
to Hadarezer
<01928>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that they were smitten
<05062> (8738)
before
<06440>
Israel
<03478>_,
they made peace
<07999> (8686)
with Israel
<03478>_,
and served
<05647> (8799)
them. So the Syrians
<0758>
feared
<03372> (8799)
to help
<03467> (8687)
the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
any more.
