Then he placed garrisonsa in Aram of Damascus, and the Arameans became David's subjects and brought tribute. The Lord made David victorious wherever he went.
David took the gold shields carried by Hadadezer's officers and brought them to Jerusalem.
From Tibhath and Cun, Hadadezer's cities, David also took huge quantities of bronze, from which Solomon made the bronze reservoir, the pillars, and the bronze articles.b9
When King Tou of Hamath heard that David had defeated the entire army of King Hadadezer of Zobah,
he sent his son Hadoram to King David to greet him and to congratulate him because David had fought against Hadadezer and defeated him, for Tou and Hadadezer had fought many wars. [Hadoram brought] all kinds of items of gold, silver, and bronze.
King David also dedicated these to the Lord, along with the silver and gold he had carried off from all the nations-from Edom, Moab, the Ammonites, the Philistines, and the Amalekites.
