2 Samuel 8:7-12 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

David took the gold shields which Hadad‘ezer’s servants were wearing and brought them to Yerushalayim. From Betach and Berotai, cities of Hadad‘ezer, King David took a great quantity of bronze.

When To‘i king of Hamat heard that David had defeated Hadad‘ezer’s entire army, 10 To‘i sent Yoram his son to King David to greet and congratulate him on fighting and defeating Hadad‘ezer, for Hadad‘ezer had been at war with To‘i. Yoram brought with him articles of silver, articles of gold and articles of bronze, 11 which King David dedicated to Adonai, along with the silver and gold that he dedicated from all the nations he conquered — 12 Aram, Mo’av, the people of ‘Amon, the P’lishtim, ‘Amalek, and the spoil taken from Hadad‘ezer son of Rechov, king of Tzovah.

2 Samuel 8:7-12 New King James Version (NKJV)

And David took the shields of gold that had belonged to the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem. Also from [a]Betah and from Berothai,[b] cities of Hadadezer, King David took a large amount of bronze.

When [c]Toi king of Hamath heard that David had defeated all the army of Hadadezer, 10 then Toi sent [d]Joram his son to King David, to [e]greet him and bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer and defeated him (for Hadadezer had been at war with Toi); and Joram brought with him articles of silver, articles of gold, and articles of bronze. 11 King David also dedicated these to the Lord, along with the silver and gold that he had dedicated from all the nations which he had subdued— 12 from [f]Syria, from Moab, from the people of Ammon, from the Philistines, from Amalek, and from the spoil of Hadadezer the son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
