19:1 Now it came to pass after this [H310] , that Nahash [H5176] the king [H4428] of the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] died [H4191] , and his son [H1121] reigned [H4427] in his stead.

19:2 And David [H1732] said [H559] , I will shew [H6213] kindness [H2617] unto Hanun [H2586] the son [H1121] of Nahash [H5176] , because his father [H1] shewed [H6213] kindness [H2617] to me. And David [H1732] sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] to comfort [H5162] him concerning his father [H1] . So the servants [H5650] of David [H1732] came [H935] into the land [H776] of the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] to Hanun [H2586] , to comfort [H5162] him.

19:3 But the princes [H8269] of the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] said [H559] to Hanun [H2586] , Thinkest [H5869] thou that David [H1732] doth honour [H3513] thy father [H1] , that he hath sent [H7971] comforters [H5162] unto thee? are not his servants [H5650] come [H935] unto thee for to search [H2713] , and to overthrow [H2015] , and to spy out [H7270] the land [H776] ?(Thinkest: Heb. In thine eyes doth David, etc)

19:4 Wherefore Hanun [H2586] took [H3947] David's [H1732] servants [H5650] , and shaved [H1548] them, and cut off [H3772] their garments [H4063] in the midst [H2677] hard by their buttocks [H4667] , and sent them away [H7971] .

19:5 Then there went [H3212] [certain], and told [H5046] David [H1732] how the men [H582] were served. And he sent [H7971] to meet [H7125] them: for the men [H582] were greatly [H3966] ashamed [H3637] . And the king [H4428] said [H559] , Tarry [H3427] at Jericho [H3405] until your beards [H2206] be grown [H6779] , and [then] return [H7725] .

19:6 And when the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] saw [H7200] that they had made themselves odious [H887] to David [H1732] , Hanun [H2586] and the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] sent [H7971] a thousand [H505] talents [H3603] of silver [H3701] to hire [H7936] them chariots [H7393] and horsemen [H6571] out of Mesopotamia [H763] , and out of Syriamaachah [H758] [H4601] , and out of Zobah [H6678] .(odious: Heb. to stink)

19:7 So they hired [H7936] thirty [H7970] and two [H8147] thousand [H505] chariots [H7393] , and the king [H4428] of Maachah [H4601] and his people [H5971] ; who came [H935] and pitched [H2583] before [H6440] Medeba [H4311] . And the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] gathered themselves together [H622] from their cities [H5892] , and came [H935] to battle [H4421] .

19:8 And when David [H1732] heard [H8085] [of it], he sent [H7971] Joab [H3097] , and all the host [H6635] of the mighty men [H1368] .

19:9 And the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] came out [H3318] , and put the battle [H4421] in array [H6186] before the gate [H6607] of the city [H5892] : and the kings [H4428] that were come [H935] [were] by themselves in the field [H7704] .

19:10 Now when Joab [H3097] saw [H7200] that the battle [H4421] was set against him before [H6440] and behind [H268] , he chose out [H977] of all the choice [H977] of Israel [H3478] , and put [them] in array [H6186] against [H7125] the Syrians [H758] .(the battle: Heb. the face of the battle was)(choice: or, young men)

19:11 And the rest [H3499] of the people [H5971] he delivered [H5414] unto the hand [H3027] of Abishai [H52] his brother [H251] , and they set [themselves] in array [H6186] against [H7125] the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] .(Abishai: Heb. Abshai)

19:12 And he said [H559] , If the Syrians [H758] be too strong [H2388] for me, then thou shalt help [H8668] me: but if the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] be too strong [H2388] for thee, then I will help [H3467] thee.

19:13 Be of good courage [H2388] , and let us behave ourselves valiantly [H2388] for our people [H5971] , and for the cities [H5892] of our God [H430] : and let the LORD [H3068] do [H6213] [that which is] good [H2896] in his sight [H5869] .

19:14 So Joab [H3097] and the people [H5971] that [were] with him drew nigh [H5066] before [H6440] the Syrians [H758] unto the battle [H4421] ; and they fled [H5127] before [H6440] him.

19:15 And when the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] saw [H7200] that the Syrians [H758] were fled [H5127] , they likewise fled [H5127] before [H6440] Abishai [H52] his brother [H251] , and entered [H935] into the city [H5892] . Then Joab [H3097] came [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] .

19:16 And when the Syrians [H758] saw [H7200] that they were put to the worse [H5062] before [H6440] Israel [H3478] , they sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] , and drew forth [H3318] the Syrians [H758] that [were] beyond [H5676] the river [H5104] : and Shophach [H7780] the captain [H8269] of the host [H6635] of Hadarezer [H1928] [went] before [H6440] them.(river: i.that is, Euphrates)(Shophach: or, Shobach.2Sam.10.16)

19:17 And it was told [H5046] David [H1732] ; and he gathered [H622] all Israel [H3478] , and passed over [H5674] Jordan [H3383] , and came [H935] upon them, and set [the battle] in array [H6186] against them. So when David [H1732] had put the battle [H4421] in array [H6186] against [H7125] the Syrians [H758] , they fought [H3898] with him.

19:18 But the Syrians [H758] fled [H5127] before [H6440] Israel [H3478] ; and David [H1732] slew [H2026] of the Syrians [H758] seven [H7651] thousand [H505] [men which fought in] chariots [H7393] , and forty [H705] thousand [H505] footmen [H376] [H7273] , and killed [H4191] Shophach [H7780] the captain [H8269] of the host [H6635] .

19:19 And when the servants [H5650] of Hadarezer [H1928] saw [H7200] that they were put to the worse [H5062] before [H6440] Israel [H3478] , they made peace [H7999] with David [H1732] , and became his servants [H5647] : neither would [H14] the Syrians [H758] help [H3467] the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] any more.
