Shmuel II (Book of 2 Samuel), Chapter 8

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 And after this it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them; and David took Metheg-ammah out of the hand of the Philistines.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 And 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 presents.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 David smote also Hadadezer the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to establish his dominion at the river Euphrates.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 And David took from him a thousand and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen; and David houghed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them for a hundred chariots.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 And when the Arameans of Damascus came to succour Hadadezer king of Zobah, David smote of the Arameans two and twenty thousand men.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Then David put garrisons in Aram of Damascus; and the Arameans became servants to David, and brought presents. And HaShem gave victory to David whithersoever he went.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 And from Betah and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 And when Toi king of Hamath heard that David had smitten all the host of Hadadezer,

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 then 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 he brought with him vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of brass.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 These also did king David dedicate unto HaShem, with the silver and gold that he dedicated of all the nations which he subdued:

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 of Aram, 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.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 And David got him a name when he returned from smiting the Arameans in the Valley of Salt, even eighteen thousand men.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 And he put garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom put he garrisons, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And HaShem gave victory to David whithersoever he went.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 And David reigned over all Israel; and David executed justice and righteousness unto all his people.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 and Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, were priests; and Seraiah was scribe;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David's sons were chief ministers.
