And when the yere was expired, in the time that Kings goe out a warfare, Ioab caryed out the strength of the armie, and destroyed the countrey of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah (but Dauid taryed at Ierusalem) & Ioab smote Rabbah & destroyed it.
2
Then Dauid tooke the crowne of their King from off his head, and founde it the weight of a talent of golde, with precious stones in it: and it was set on Dauids head, and he brought away the spoyle of the citie exceeding much.
3
And he caryed away the people that were in it, and cut them with sawes, and with harowes of yron, and with axes: euen thus did Dauid with all the cities of the children of Ammon.
Then Dauid and all the people came againe to Ierusalem.
4
And after this also there arose warre at Gezer with the Philistims: then Sibbechai the Hushathite slewe Sippai, of the children of Haraphah, and they were subdued.
5
And there was yet another battell with the Philistims: and Elhanan the sonne of Iair slewe Lahmi, the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spearestaffe was like a weauers beame.
6
And yet againe there was a battel at Gath, where was a man of a great stature, & his fingers were by sixes, euen foure and twentie, and was also the sonne of Haraphah.
7
And when he reuiled Israel, Iehonathan the sonne of Shimea Dauids brother did slay him.
8
These were borne vnto Haraphah at Gath, and fell by the hand of Dauid: and by the hands of his seruants.
