2 Samuel 10:15-18


10:15 When the Arameans realized that they had been defeated by Israel, they consolidated their forces. 1  10:16 Then Hadadezer sent for Arameans from 2  beyond the Euphrates River, 3  and they came to Helam. Shobach, the general in command of Hadadezer’s army, led them. 4 

10:17 When David was informed, he gathered all Israel, crossed the Jordan River, 5  and came to Helam. The Arameans deployed their forces against David and fought with him. 10:18 The Arameans fled before Israel. David killed 700 Aramean charioteers and 40,000 foot soldiers. 6  He also struck down Shobach, the general in command of the army, who died there.

1 tn Heb “were gathered together.”

2 tn Heb “and Hadadezer sent and brought out Aram which is.”

3 tn Heb “from beyond the River.” The name “Euphrates” has been supplied in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “was before them.”

5 tn The word “River” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied in the translation for clarity.

6 tn Heb “horsemen” (so KJV, NASB, NCV, NRSV, NLT) but the Lucianic recension of the LXX reads “foot soldiers,” as does the parallel text in 1 Chr 19:18. Cf. NAB, NIV.
