And Davidtook the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weighb a talent of gold, and there were preciousstones in it; and it was set upon David'shead: and he brought also exceedingmuchspoil 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 dealtDavid with all the cities of the children of Ammon. And David and all the peoplereturned to Jerusalem.4
