1 Chronicles 19:1-5 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Defeat of the Ammonites and Arameans

19 Now after this Nahash the king of the Ammonites died, and his son reigned in his stead. And David said, “I will deal loyally with Hanun the son of Nahash, for his father dealt loyally with me.” So David sent messengers to console him concerning his father. And David’s servants came to Hanun in the land of the Ammonites, to console him. But the princes of the Ammonites said to Hanun, “Do you think, because David has sent comforters to you, that he is honoring your father? Have not his servants come to you to search and to overthrow and to spy out the land?” So Hanun took David’s servants, and shaved them, and cut off their garments in the middle, at their hips, and sent them away; and they departed. When David was told concerning the men, he sent to meet them, for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, “Remain at Jericho until your beards have grown, and then return.”
