2 Samuel 8:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 8

Summary of David’s Wars. After this, David defeated the Philistines and subdued them; and David took…[a] from the Philistines.


  1. 8:1 David took…: the original Hebrew seems irretrievable. The transmitted text gives “the bridle of the cubit”; 1 Chr 18:1 understood “Gath and its towns”; others implausibly read “dominion of the capital city.”
