 Now when Thou king of Hemath heard that David had defeated all the army of Adarezer king of Soba,
Quod cum audisset Thou rex Hemath, percussisse videlicet David omnem exercitum Adarezer regis Soba,
 He sent Adoram his son to king David, to desire peace of him, and to congratulate him that he had defeated and overthrown Adarezer: for Thou was an enemy to Adarezer.
misit Adoram filium suum ad regem David, ut postularet ab eo pacem, et congratularetur ei quod percussisset, et expugnasset Adarezer : adversarius quippe erat Thou Adarezer.
 And all the vessels of gold, and silver, and brass king David consecrated to the Lord, with the silver and gold which he had taken from all the nations, as well from Edom, and from Moab, and from the sons of Ammon, as from the Philistines, and from Amalec.
