2 Samuel 8:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Summary of David’s Wars. 1 After this, David defeated the Philistines and subdued them; and David took… from the Philistines. 2 He also defeated Moab and measured them with a line. Making them lie down on the ground, he measured two lengths of line for death, and a full length for life. Thus the Moabites became subject to David, paying tribute.
