1 Chronicles 20:1-2 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Capture of the City of Rabbah

20 In the spring[a] when kings march out to war, Joab led the army and destroyed the Ammonites’ land. He came to Rabbah and besieged it, but David remained in Jerusalem. Joab attacked Rabbah and demolished it. Then David took the crown from the head of their king,[b][c] and it was placed on David’s head. He found that the crown weighed 75 pounds[d] of gold, and there was a precious stone in it. In addition, David took away a large quantity of plunder from the city.
