RF SA2 8:10 Thai sent his son Joram to King David to ask for peace from him, and to congratulate him upon the way he had fought Hadadazer, and defeated him,—for Thai had been a general of Hadadazer—and he brought with him articles of silver, and gold, and brass.
RF SA2 8:11 These also King David brought to the EVER-LIVING, with the silver and gold which he took from all the nations whom he subdued;—
RF SA2 8:12 from Aram, and from Moab, and from the Beni-Amon, and from the Philishtim, and from Amalek, and from the booty of Hadadazer-ben-Rekhab, king of the Delta of Zobah.
RF SA2 8:13 David also acquired fame on his turning the flank upon defeating the eighteen thousand of Aram at the river's mouth by the sea.1

RF SA2 8:14 He placed garrisons in the whole of Edom, and all Edom was subdued to David. Thus the EVER-LIVING protected David wherever he went,
RF SA2 8:15 for David reigned over all Israel, and David administered justice and right to all his People.
RF SA2 8:16 J'oab-ben-Zeruiah was over his army, and Jhoshafat-ben-Akhilud was Chancellor,
