1And it came to pass in the spring of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that Joab led forth the army and he laid waste the country of the children of Ammon and he came and besieged Rabbah. But David stayed at Jerusalem. Joab struck Rabbah and overthrew it.
2David took the crown of their king from off his head and found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there was a precious stone on it; and it was set on David’s head; and he brought very much spoil out of the city.
3He brought forth the people who were in it and made them saw with saws and work with iron picks and with axes. David did so to all the cities of the children of Ammon. Then David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.
6And again there was war at Gath, where there was a man of great size who had 24 fingers and toes, six on each hand and six on each foot, and he also was a descendant of Rapha.
7When he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea David’s brother killed him.
