:3 The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but He casteth away the substance of the wicked.
:1 I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 Sam 10
:1 The king of Ammon died and his son Hanun took his place.
:2-7 David sent servants to comfort him in honor of his fater, but his servants told him they were coming to spy, so he shaved half of David's men heads and cut their clothing. Then he hired soldiers from other kings. When David heard he sent Joab out to meet them with all the host of the mighty men.
:8-13 Joab split the men up between himself and his brother. When he came out against the Syrians they fled.
:14- When Ammon's people saw the Syrians flee they did also.
:15-19 The Syrians that were left gathered together. David gathered with all of Israel and came out against them. David won and all the kings that were servants to Hadarezer joined Israel. The Syrians were afraid to help Ammon any more.
