Bible: 2 Samuel 8:3-6

8:3 David defeated King Hadadezer son of Rehob of Zobah when he came to reestablish 1  his authority 2  over the Euphrates 3  River. 8:4 David seized from him 1,700 charioteers 4  and 20,000 infantrymen. David cut the hamstrings of all but a hundred of the chariot horses. 5  8:5 The Arameans of Damascus came to help King Hadadezer of Zobah, but David killed 22,000 of the Arameans. 8:6 David placed garrisons in the territory of the Arameans of Damascus; the Arameans became David’s subjects and brought tribute. The Lord protected 6  David wherever he campaigned. 7
