1 Chronicles 20:1-2 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

The Capture of Rabbah

20 And it happened that in the spring time of year,[a] the time when kings go out to battle, Joab led the troops of the army and destroyed the land of the Ammonites.[b] And he came and besieged Rabbah, but David remained in Jerusalem. And Joab struck Rabbah and destroyed it. And David took the crown of their king from his head and found it to weigh a talent of gold. And in it was a precious stone. Then it was placed upon the head of David. And he brought out the booty of the city, a large amount.
