¶ And the year following about the time that kings go out a warfare, Ioab carried out the army of the host and destroyed the country of the children of Ammon, and went and besieged Rabah and destroyed it: But David bode at Ierusalem while Ioab smote Rabah and destroyed it: And David took the crown of their king off his head, and found therein the weight of a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it, and it was set on David's head. And he brought out also the spoil of the city which was exceeding much. And he brought out the people that were in it and tamed them with saws and harrows of iron and with brakes, and so dealt David with all the cities of the children of Ammon. And then David and all the people came again to Ierusalem.
¶ After that there arose war at Gazer with the Philistines. At which time Sobocai the Husathite slew Saphai that was of the children of Raphaim, and they were subdued. And there was battle again with the Philistines, and Elhanan the son of Iair slew Lahemi the brother of Goliath the Gethite, whose spear was like the beam of a weaver. And there chanced yet again war at Geth, where was a man of a size with twenty four fingers and toes, six on every hand and six on every foot, and was the son of Haraphah and defied Israel. And Iehonathan the son of Samaa David's brother slew him. These were born of Haraphah at Geth and were overthrown by the hand of David and of his servants.
