King James Version1 Chronicles18

1 Chronicles

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