King James Version1 Chronicles20

1 Chronicles

1 And it came to pass, that af­ter the year was ex­pired, at the time that kings go out ­to battle, Joab led forth the pow­er of the army, and wast­ed the coun­try of the chil­dren of Am­mon, and came and be­sieged Rab­bah. But David tar­ried at Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rab­bah, and de­stroyed it. 2 And David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a tal­ent of gold, and there were pre­cious stones in it; and it was set upon David's head: and he brought also ex­ceed­ing much spoil out of the city. 3 And he brought out the peo­ple that were in it, and cut them with saws, and with har­rows of iron, and with ax­es. Even so dealt David with all the cities of the chil­dren of Am­mon. And David and all the peo­ple re­turned to Jerusalem. 4 And it came to pass af­ter this, that there arose war at Gez­er with the Philistines; at which time Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Sip­pai, that was of the chil­dren of the gi­ant: and they were sub­dued. 5 And there was war again with the Philistines; and El­hanan the son of Jair slew Lah­mi the broth­er of Go­liath the Git­tite, whose spear staff was like a weaver's beam. 6 And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fin­gers and toes were four and twen­ty, six on each hand, and six on each foot: and he also was the son of the gi­ant. 7 But when he de­fied Is­rael, Jonathan the son of Shimea David's broth­er slew him. 8 These were born unto the gi­ant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his ser­vants.
