Bible: 2 Samuel 12:26-30


David’s Forces Defeat the Ammonites


So Joab fought against Rabbah of the Ammonites and captured the royal city. 12:27 Joab then sent messengers to David, saying, “I have fought against Rabbah and have captured the water supply of the city. 2  12:28 So now assemble the rest of the army 3  and besiege the city and capture it. Otherwise I will capture the city and it will be named for me.”

12:29 So David assembled all the army and went to Rabbah and fought against it and captured it. 12:30 He took the crown of their king 4  from his head – it was gold, weighed about seventy-five pounds, 5  and held a precious stone – and it was placed on David’s head. He also took from the city a great deal of plunder.
