David conquered Gath, and defeated the Philistines.
What did I do?!
This is something to praise God for!
David conquered the land of Moab.
David made the Moabites lie down on the ground in a row, and he measured them off in groups with a length of rope. He measured off two groups to be executed for every one group to be spared. The Moabites who were spared became David's subjects and paid him tribute money. (2 Samuel 8:2)
My life sucks!
So the Lord made David victorious wherever he went. (2 Samuel 8:6)
Joram, King Toi's son, presented David with many gifts of silver, gold, and bronze. (2 Samuel 8:10)
Thank you, King David, for destroying the entire army of Hadadezer!
David reigned over all Israel and did what was just right for all his people. (2 Samuel 8:15)
