When Tou king of Hamath heard that David had defeated the entire army of Hadadezer king of Zobah,
he sent his son Hadoram to King David to greet him and congratulate him on his victory in battle over Hadadezer, who had been at war with Tou. Hadoram brought all kinds of articles of gold and silver and bronze.
King David dedicated these articles to the LORD, as he had done with the silver and gold he had taken from all these nations: Edom1 and Moab, the Ammonites and the Philistines, and Amalek.2
