II Samuel 8 (asv)
8:2And he smote Moab, and measured them with the line, making them to lie down on the ground; and he measured two lines to put to death, and one full line to keep alive. And the Moabites became servants to David, and brought tribute.
8:3David smote also Hadadezer the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to recover his dominion at the River.8:4And David took from him a thousand and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: and David hocked all the chariot horses, but reserved of them for a hundred chariots. 8:5And when the Syrians of Damascus came to succor Hadadezer king of Zobah, David smote of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men. 8:6Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus; and the Syrians became servants to David, and brought tribute. And Jehovah gave victory to David whithersoever he went. 8:7And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem. 8:8And from Betah and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass. 8:9And when Toi king of Hamath heard that David had smitten all the host of Hadadezer, 8:10then Toi sent Joram his son unto king David, to salute him, and to bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer and smitten him: for Hadadezer had wars with Toi. And Joram brought with him vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of brass: 8:11These also did king David dedicate unto Jehovah, with the silver and gold that he dedicated of all the nations which he subdued; 8:12of Syria, and of Moab, and of the children of Ammon, and of the Philistines, and of Amalek, and of the spoil of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
8:13And David gat him a name when he returned from smiting the Syrians in the Valley of Salt, even eighteen thousand men. 8:14And he put garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom put he garrisons, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And Jehovah gave victory to David whithersoever he went.
8:15And David reigned over all Israel; and David executed justice and righteousness unto all his people.8:16And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder; 8:17and Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, were priests; and Seraiah was scribe; 8:18and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David's sons were chief ministers.
