2 Samuel 8; 2 Samuel 9; 1 Chronicles 18

1 And it came to pass after this that David defeated the Philistines, and brought them down, and David took the bridle of tribute out of the hand of the Philistines, 2 And he defeated Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the earth: and he measured with two lines, one to put to death, and one to save alive: and Moab was made to serve David under tribute. 3 David defeated also Adarezer the son of Rohob king of Soba, when he went to extend his dominion over the river Euphrates. 4 And David took from him a thousand and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen, and houghed all the chariot horses: and only reserved of them for one hundred chariots. 5 And the Syrians of Damascus came to succour Adarezer the king of Soba: and David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men. 6 And David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus: and Syria served David under tribute, and the Lord preserved David in all his enterprises, whithersoever he went. 7 And David took the arms of gold, which the servants of Adarezer wore and brought them to Jerusalem. 8 And out of Bete, and out of Beroth, cities of Adarezer, king David took and exceeding great quantity of brass. 9 And Thou the king of Emath heard that David had defeated all the forces of Adarezer. 10 And Thou sent Joram his son to king David, to salute him, and to congratulate with him, and to return him thanks: because he had fought against Adarezer, and had defeated him. For Thou was an enemy to Adarezer, and in his hand were vessels of gold, and vessels of silver, and vessels of brass: 11 And king David dedicated them to the Lord, together with the silver and gold that he had dedicated of all the nations, which he had subdued: 12 Of Syria, and of Moab, and of the children Ammon, and of the Philistines, and of Amalec, and of the spoils of Adarezer the son of Rohob king of Soba. 13 David also made himself a name, when he returned after taking Syria in the valley of the saltpits, killing eighteen thousand: 14 And he put guards in Edom, and placed there a garrison: and all Edom was made to serve David: and the Lord preserved David in all enterprises he went about. 15 And David reigned over all Israel: and David did judgment and justice to all his people. 16 And Joab the son Sarvia was over the army: and Josaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder: 17 And Sadoc the son of Achitob, and Achimelech the son of Abiathar, were the priests: and Saraias was the scribe: 18 And Banaias the son of Joiada was over the Cerethi and Phelethi: and the sons of David were the princes.
1 And David said: Is there any one, think you, left of the house of Saul, that I may shew kindness to him for Jonathan’s sake? 2 Now there was of the house of Saul, a servant named Siba: and when the king had called him to him, he said to him: Art thou Siba? And he answered: I am Siba thy servant. 3 And the king said: Is there any one left of the house of Saul, that I may shew the mercy of God unto Him? And Siba said to the king: There is a son of Jonathan left, who is lame of his feet. 4 Where is he? said he. And Siba said to the king: Behold he is in the house of Machir the son of Ammiel in Lodabar. 5 Then King David sent, and brought him out of the house of Machir the son of Ammiel of Lodabar. 6 And when Miphiboseth the son of Jonathan the son of Saul was come to David, he fell on his face and worshipped. And David said: Miphiboseth? And he answered: Behold thy servant. 7 And David said to him: Fear not, for I will surely shew thee mercy for Jonathan thy father’s sake, and I will restore the lands of Saul the father, and thou shalt eat bread at my table always. 8 He bowed down to him, and said: Who am I thy servant, that thou shouldst look upon such a dead dog as I am? 9 Then the King called Siba the servant of Saul, and said to him: All that belonged to Saul, and all his house, I have given to thy master’s son. 10 Thou therefore and the sons and thy servants shall till the land for him: and thou shalt bring in food for thy master’s son, that he may be maintained: and Miphiboseth the son of thy master shall always eat bread at my table. And Siba had fifteen sons and twenty servants. 11 And Siba said to the king: As thou my lord the hast commanded thy servant, so will thy servant do: and Miphiboseth shall eat at my table, as one of the sons of the King. 12 And Miphiboseth had a young son whose name was Micha: and all that kindred of the house of Siba served Miphiboseth. 13 But Miphiboseth dwelt in Jerusalem: because he ate always of the king’s table: and he was lame of both feet.
1 And it came to pass after this, that David defeated the Philistines, and humbled them, and took away Geth, and her daughters out of the hands of the Philistines, 2 And he defeated Moab, and the Moabites were made David’s servants, and brought him gifts. 3 At that time David defeated also Adarezer king of Soba of the land of Hemath, when he went to extend his dominions as far as the river Euphrates. 4 And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen, and he houghed all the chariot horses, only a hundred chariots, which he reserved for himself. 5 And the Syrians of Damascus came also to help Adarezer king of Soba: and David slew of them likewise two and twenty thousand men. 6 And he put a garrison in Damascus, that Syria also should serve him, and bring gifts. And the Lord assisted him in all things to which he went. 7 And David took the golden quivers which the servants of Adarezer had, and he brought them to Jerusalem. 8 Likewise out of Thebath and Chun, cities of Adarezer, he brought very much brass, of which Solomon made the brazen sea, and the pillars, and the vessels of brass. 9 Now when Thou king of Hemath heard that David had defeated all the army of Adarezer king of Soba, 10 He sent Adoram his son to king David to desire peace of him, and to congratulate him that he had defeated and overthrown Adarezer: for Thou was an enemy to Adarezer. 11 And all the vessels of gold, and silver and brass king David consecrated to the Lord, with the silver and gold which he had taken from all the nations, as well from Edom, and from Moab, and from the sons of Ammon, as from the Philistines, and from Amalec. 12 And Abisai the son of Sarvia slew of the Edomites in the vale of the saltpits, eighteen thousand: 13 And he put a garrison in Edom, that Edom should serve David: and the Lord preserved David in all things to which he went. 14 So David reigned over all Israel, and executed judgment and justice among all his people. 15 And Joab the son of Sarvia was over the army, and Josaphat the son of Ahilud recorder. 16 And Sadoc the son of Achitob, and Achimelech the son of Abiathar, were the priests: and Susa, scribe. 17 And Banaias the son of Joiada was over the bands of the Cerethi, and the Phelethi: and the sons of David were chief about the king.
