2 Samuel 8:9-10

Context

8:9 When King Toi 1  of Hamath heard that David had defeated the entire army of Hadadezer, 8:10 he 2  sent his son Joram 3  to King David to extend his best wishes 4  and to pronounce a blessing on him for his victory over Hadadezer, for Toi had been at war with Hadadezer. 5  He brought with him various items made of silver, gold, and bronze. 6 

1 tn The name is spelled “Tou” in the parallel text in 1 Chr 18:9. NIV adopts the spelling “Tou” here.

2 tn Heb “Toi.” The proper name has been replaced by the pronoun in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn The name appears as “Hadoram” in the parallel text in 1 Chr 18:10.

4 tn Heb “to ask concerning him for peace.”

5 tn Heb “and to bless him because he fought with Hadadezer and defeated him, for Hadadezer was a man of battles with Toi.”

6 tn Heb “and in his hand were items of silver and items of gold and items of bronze.”
