1 Chronicles 20 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)
20 When springtime arrived, the time when kings go out to war, Joab led out the army, ravaged the land of the Ammonites, and besieged Rabbah. David remained in Jerusalem. Joab attacked Rabbah and pulled it down.
2 David took the gold crown of their king[a] from his head. It weighed seventy-five pounds[b] and had a precious stone in it. It was placed on[c] David’s head. He brought out large amounts of plunder from the city. 3 He brought out the people who were in the city. He put them to work with saws, iron picks, and axes.[d] David did the same to all the cities of the Ammonites. Then David and all the troops returned to Jerusalem.
War With the Philistines
5 There was another battle with the Philistines. Elhanan, the son of Jair, killed Lahmi, the brother of Goliath the Gittite. The shaft of his spear was like a weaver’s beam.
6 There was another battle, this time at Gath. There was a very tall man who had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four digits in all. He also was descended from Rapha the giant.[h] 7 He taunted Israel, but Jonathan, the son of Shimeah, David’s brother, killed him. 8 These were descended from the giant in Gath. They fell by the hand of David and the men who served him.
