6 Then David put garrisons among the Arameans of Damascus; and the Arameans became servants to David, bringing tribute. And the LORD helped David wherever * he went.
7 David took the shields of gold which were carried by the servants of Hadadezer and brought them to Jerusalem.
8 Also from Tibhath and from Cun, cities of Hadadezer, David took a very large amount of bronze, with which 1Solomon made the bronze sea and the pillars and the bronze utensils.
9 Now when Tou king of Hamath heard that David had defeated all the army of Hadadezer king of Zobah,
10 he sent Hadoram his son to King David to greet * him and to bless him, because * he had fought against Hadadezer and had defeated him; for Hadadezer had been at war with Tou. And Hadoram brought all kinds of articles of gold and silver and bronze.
11 King David also dedicated these to the LORD with the silver and the gold which he had carried away from all the nations: from Edom, Moab, the sons of Ammon, the Philistines, and from Amalek.
