1 And it came to pass, that after the year was expired, at the time that kings go out to battle, Yoav led forth the power of the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But Dawid tarried at Jerusalem (Yerushalayim). And Yoav smote Rabbah, and destroyed it.
2 And Dawid took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it; and it was set upon Dawid’s head; and he brought also exceeding much spoil out of the city.
3 And he brought out the people that were in it, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. Even so dealt Dawid with all the cities of the children of Ammon. And Dawid and all the people returned to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim).
4 And it came to pass after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the Philistines; at which time Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Sippai, that was of the children of the giant; and they were subdued.
5 And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Yair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver’s beam.
6 And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot; and he also was the son of the giant.
7 But when he defied Yisrael, Yonatan the son of Shimea Dawid’s brother slew him.
8 These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of Dawid, and by the hand of his servants.
