David’s Military Victories
1After this, David defeated and subdued the Philistines by conquering Gath and its surrounding towns.
3David also destroyed the forces of Hadadezer, king of Zobah, as far as Hamath,*18:3 The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain. when Hadadezer marched out to strengthen his control along the Euphrates River.
5When Arameans from Damascus arrived to help King Hadadezer, David killed 22,000 of them.
7David brought the gold shields of Hadadezer’s officers to Jerusalem,
9When King Toi*18:9 As in parallel text at 2 Sam 8:9; Hebrew reads Tou; also in 18:10. of Hamath heard that David had destroyed the entire army of King Hadadezer of Zobah,
11King David dedicated all these gifts to the Lord, along with the silver and gold he had taken from the other nations—from Edom, Moab, Ammon, Philistia, and Amalek.
12Abishai son of Zeruiah destroyed 18,000 Edomites in the Valley of Salt.
14So David reigned over all Israel and did what was just and right for all his people.
