1 Chronicles 20

It happened, at the time of the return of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that Joab led forth the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But Dawud stayed at Jerusalem. Joab struck Rabbah, and overthrew it. 2Dawud took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it; and it was set on Dawud’s head: and he brought forth the spoil of the city, very much. 3He brought forth the people who were therein, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. Thus did Dawud to all the cities of the children of Ammon. Dawud and all the people returned to Jerusalem. 4It happened after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the Philistines: then Sibbecai the Hushathite killed Sippai, of the sons of the giant; and they were subdued. 5There was again war with the Philistines; and Elhanan Ibn Jair killed Lahmi the brother of Jalut the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam. 6There was again war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were twenty-four, six on each hand, and six on each foot; and he also was born to the giant. 7When he defied Israel, Jonathan Ibn Shimea, Dawud’s brother killed him. 8These were born to the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of Dawud, and by the hand of his servants.
