And the messenger said unto David
The particulars of his account follow:
surely the men prevailed against us;
the men of the city of Rabbah, the besieged there, in one onset they made upon them:
and came out unto us in the field;
the besiegers that lay encamped there; they sallied out upon them:
and we were upon them, even unto the entering of the gate;
rallied upon them, and drove them back, and pursued them to the gate of the city.
