6 David put troops in the Aramean kingdom of Damascus, and the Arameans became his subjects and paid taxes [to him]. Everywhere David went, the LORD gave him victories.
7 David took the gold shields that Hadadezer's servants carried, and he brought them to Jerusalem.
8 David also took a large quantity of bronze from Tibhath and Cun, Hadadezer's cities. ([Later] Solomon used it to make the pool, pillars, and utensils [for the temple].)
9 When King Tou of Hamath heard that David had defeated the whole army of Zobah's King Hadadezer,
10 he sent his son Hadoram to greet King David and congratulate him for fighting and defeating Hadadezer. (There had often been war between Hadadezer and Tou.)
11 King David dedicated all the articles of gold, silver, and bronze to the LORD, along with the silver and gold he had taken from other nations--from Edom, Moab, Ammon, the Philistines, and Amalek.
