First Chronicles 18


18:1 Now after this it came to pass that David smote the
 Philistines, and subdued them, and took Gath and its towns out
 of the hand of the Philistines.
18:2 And he smote Moab; and the Moabites became David's
 servants, [and] brought gifts.
18:3 And David smote Hadarezer king of Zobah to Hamath, as he
 went to establish his dominion by the river Euphrates.
18:4 And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven
 thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: David also
 houghed all the chariot-[horses], but reserved of them a
 hundred chariots.
18:5 And when the Syrians of Damascus came to help Hadarezer
 king of Zobah, David slew of the Syrians two and twenty
 thousand men.
18:6 Then David put [garrisons] in Syria-damascus; and the
 Syrians became David's servants, [and] brought gifts. Thus the
 LORD preserved David whithersoever he went.
18:7 And David took the shields of gold that were on the
 servants of Hadarezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.
18:8 Likewise from Tibhath, and from Chun, cities of Hadarezer,
 David brought very much brass, with which Solomon made the
 brazen sea, and the pillars, and the vessels of brass.
18:9 Now when Tou king of Hamath heard how David had smitten all
 the host of Hadarezer king of Zobah;
18:10 He sent Hadoram his son to king David to inquire of his
 welfare, and to congratulate him, because he had fought against
 Hadarezer, and smitten him; (for Hadarezer had warred with
 Tou;) and [with him] all manner of vessels of gold, and silver,
 and brass.
18:11 Them also king David dedicated to the LORD, with the
 silver and the gold that he brought from all [these] nations;
 from Edom, and from Moab, and from the children of Ammon, and
 from the Philistines, and from Amalek.
18:12 Moreover, Abishai the son of Zeruiah slew of the Edomites
 in the valley of salt eighteen thousand.
18:13 And he put garrisons in Edom; and all the Edomites became
 David's servants. Thus the LORD preserved David whithersoever
 he went.
18:14 So David reigned over all Israel, and executed judgment
 and justice among all his people.
18:15 And Joab the son of Zeruiah [was] over the host; and
 Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud, recorder;
18:16 And Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Abimelech the son of
 Abiathar, [were] the priests; and Shavsha was scribe;
18:17 And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada [was] over the Cherethites
 and the Pelethites; and the sons of David [were] chief about
 the king.
