2 Samuel 10:1--11:1

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.
And it came to pass, after the year
<08141>
was expired
<08666>_,
at the time
<06256>
when kings
<04428> (8675) <04397>
go forth
<03318> (8800)
[to battle], that David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Joab
<03097>_,
and his servants
<05650>
with him, and all Israel
<03478>_;
and they destroyed
<07843> (8686)
the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
and besieged
<06696> (8799)
Rabbah
<07237>_.
But David
<01732>
tarried still
<03427> (8802)
at Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{after...: Heb. at the return of the year, or, in the spring}
