2 Samuel 8:8-17

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 8

8 And from Betah and Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, King David took a very large amount of bronze.
9 Now when Toi king of Hamath heard that David had defeated the whole army of Hadadezer, 10 Toi sent his son Joram to King David to greet him and bless him, because he had fought Hadadezer and defeated him; for Hadadezer had been at war with Toi. And Joram brought with him articles of silver, gold, and bronze. 11 King David also consecrated these gifts to the LORD, with the silver and gold that he had consecrated from all the nations which he had subdued: 12 from Aram, Moab, the sons of Ammon, the Philistines, Amalek, and from the spoils of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
13 So David made a name for himself when he returned from killing eighteen thousand Arameans in the Valley of Salt. 14 He also put garrisons in Edom. In all Edom he put garrisons, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And the LORD helped David wherever he went.
15 So David reigned over all Israel; and David administered justice and righteousness for all his people. 16 Joab the son of Zeruiah was commander over the army, and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was secretary. 17 Zadok the son of Ahitub and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar were priests, and Seraiah was scribe.
King James Version

Chapter 8

8 And from Betah, and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass.
9 When Toi king of Hamath heard that David had smitten all the host of Hadadezer, 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 Joram brought with him vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of brass: 11 Which also king David did dedicate unto the LORD, with the silver and gold that he had dedicated of all nations which he subdued; 12 Of Syria, 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. 13 And David gat him a name when he returned from smiting of the Syrians in the valley of salt, being eighteen thousand men. 14 And he put garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom put he garrisons, and all they of Edom became David's servants. And the LORD preserved David whithersoever he went.
15 And David reigned over all Israel; and David executed judgment and justice unto all his people. 16 And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder; 17 And Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, were the priests; and Seraiah was the scribe;

Chapter 8

8 King David also took huge quantities of bronze from Betah and Berothai, Hadadezer's cities.
9 When King Toi of Hamath heard that David had defeated the entire army of Hadadezer, 10 he sent his son Joram to King David to greet him and to congratulate him because David had fought against Hadadezer and defeated him, for Toi and Hadadezer had fought many wars. Joram had items of silver, gold, and bronze with him. 11 King David also dedicated these to the Lord, along with the silver and gold he had dedicated from all the nations he had subdued-- 12 from Edom, Moab, the Ammonites, the Philistines, the Amalekites, and the spoil of Hadadezer son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
13 David made a reputation for himself when he returned from striking down eighteen thousand Edomites in Salt Valley. 14 He placed garrisons throughout Edom, and all the Edomites were subject to David. The Lord made David victorious wherever he went.
15 So David reigned over all Israel, administering justice and righteousness for all his people.
16 Joab son of Zeruiah was over the army; Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud was court historian;
17 Zadok son of Ahitub and Ahimelech son of Abiathar were priests; Seraiah was court secretary;

8 along with a large amount of bronze from Hadadezer's towns of Tebah and Berothai.
9 When King Toi of Hamath heard that David had destroyed the entire army of Hadadezer, 10 he sent his son Joram to congratulate King David for his successful campaign. Hadadezer and Toi had been enemies and were often at war. Joram presented David with many gifts of silver, gold, and bronze.
11 King David dedicated all these gifts to the LORD, as he did with the silver and gold from the other nations he had defeated-- 12 from Edom, Moab, Ammon, Philistia, and Amalek--and from Hadadezer son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
13 So David became even more famous when he returned from destroying 18,000 Edomites in the Valley of Salt. 14 He placed army garrisons throughout Edom, and all the Edomites became David's subjects. In fact, the LORD made David victorious wherever he went.
15 So David reigned over all Israel and did what was just and right for all his people. 16 Joab son of Zeruiah was commander of the army. Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud was the royal historian. 17 Zadok son of Ahitub and Ahimelech son of Abiathar were the priests. Seraiah was the court secretary.

8 Y de Beta y de Berotai, ciudades de Hadad-ezer, el rey David tomó una gran cantidad de bronce.
9 Cuando Toi, rey de Hamat, oyó que David había derrotado a todo el ejército de Hadad-ezer, 10 Toi envió a su hijo Joram al rey David, para saludarlo y bendecirlo, porque había peleado contra Hadad-ezer y lo había derrotado ; pues Hadad-ezer había estado en guerra con Toi. Y Joram trajo consigo objetos de plata, de oro y de bronce, 11 que el rey David dedicó también al SEÑOR, junto con la plata y el oro que había dedicado de todas las naciones que él había sometido: 12 de Aram y Moab, de los hijos de Amón, de los filisteos y de Amalec, y del botín de Hadad-ezer, hijo de Rehob, rey de Soba.
13 Y se hizo David de renombre cuando regresó de derrotar a dieciocho mil arameos en el valle de la Sal. 14 Puso guarniciones en Edom; por todo Edom puso guarniciones, y todos los edomitas fueron siervos de David. Y el SEÑOR daba la victoria a David dondequiera que iba.

8 Así mismo se apoderó de una gran cantidad de bronce que había en Tébaj y Berotay, poblaciones de Hadad Ezer.
9 Tou, rey de Jamat, se enteró de que David había derrotado por completo al ejército de Hadad Ezer. 10 Como Tou también era enemigo de Hadad Ezer, envió a su hijo Jorán a desearle bienestar al rey David, y a felicitarlo por haber derrotado a Hadad Ezer en batalla. Jorán llevó consigo objetos de plata, de oro y de bronce, 11 los cuales el rey David consagró al SEÑOR, tal como lo había hecho con la plata y el oro de las otras naciones que él había subyugado: 12 Edom, Moab, los amonitas, los filisteos y los amalecitas. También consagró el botín que le había quitado a Hadad Ezer, hijo del rey Rejob de Sobá.
13 La fama de David creció aún más cuando regresó victorioso del valle de la Sal, donde aniquiló a dieciocho mil edomitas. 14 También puso guarniciones en Edom; las estableció por todo el país, de modo que los edomitas pasaron a ser vasallos tributarios de David. En todas sus campañas, el SEÑOR le daba la victoria.
15 David reinó sobre todo Israel, gobernando al pueblo entero con justicia y rectitud. 16 Joab hijo de Sarvia era general del ejército; Josafat hijo de Ajilud era el secretario; 17 Sadoc hijo de Ajitob y Ajimélec hijo de Abiatar eran sacerdotes; Seraías era el cronista;

Y Joram llevaba en su mano utensilios de plata, de oro y de bronce; 11 los cuales el rey David dedicó a Jehová, con la plata y el oro que había dedicado de todas las naciones que había sometido; 12 de los sirios, de los moabitas, de los amonitas, de los filisteos, de los amalecitas, y del botín de Hadad-ezer hijo de Rehob, rey de Soba.
13 Así ganó David fama. Cuando regresaba de derrotar a los sirios, destrozó a dieciocho mil edomitas en el Valle de la Sal. 14 Y puso guarnición en Edom; por todo Edom puso guarnición, y todos los edomitas fueron siervos de David. Y Jehová dio la victoria a David por dondequiera que fue.

Y Joram llevaba en su mano vasos de plata, y vasos de oro, y de bronce; 11 los cuales el rey David dedicó al SEÑOR, con el oro y la plata que tenía dedicado de todas las naciones que había sometido; 12 de los sirios, de los moabitas, de los ammonitas, de los filisteos, de los amalecitas, y del despojo de Hadad-ezer hijo de Rehob, rey de Soba. 13 Y ganó David fama cuando, volviendo de la derrota de los Sirios, hirió dieciocho mil hombres en el valle de la sal. 14 Asimismo puso David guarnición en Edom, por toda Edom puso guarnición; y todos los idumeos fueron siervos de David. Y el SEÑOR guardó a David por donde quiera que fue.
15 Y reinó David sobre todo Israel; y hacía David derecho y justicia a todo su pueblo. 16 Y Joab hijo de Sarvia era general de su ejército; y Josafat hijo de Ahilud, canciller; 17 y Sadoc hijo de Ahitob, y Ahimelec hijo de Abiatar, eran sacerdotes; y Seraías era escriba;
