And it came to pass, that after the year was expired, at the time that kings go out to battle, Jo'ab led forth the power of the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried at Jerusalem. 2 Sam. 11.1 And Jo'ab smote Rabbah, and destroyed it.
And David 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 upon David's head: and he brought also exceeding much spoil out of the city.
And he brought out the people that were in it, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. Even so dealt David with all the cities of the children of Ammon. And David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.
¶ And it came to pass after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the Philistines; at which time Sib'bechai the Hu'shathite slew Sip'pai, that was of the children of the giant: and they were subdued.
