The king of Israel beat them down pretty badly, especially the Moabites. He made the Moabites (the ones he kept alive) serve as tributaries and servants.

David also defeated the king of Zobah, Hadadezer. He took 1,700 horsemen and chariots, 20,000 soldiers, and recovered Israel’s border at the river Euphrates. The Syrians tried to help free the king of Zobah, but David hit them in the mouth as well destroying 22,000 of them for meddling in his business affairs.

Syria Became Servants Also

Syria also became servants to David and brought gifts. No one was going to beat David, except David, because the Lord preserved David wherever he went.

David caged Edom, putting them in garrisons and they also became his servants (neighboring nations should get the hint). Enemies of the nations David defeated, seeing David made their enemies his servants, began to send him gifts; like the king of Hamath.

Toi, the king of Hamath, sent vessels of silver, gold, and brass to David and blessed him. David dedicated all the gifts he received to the Lord and kept them in a national treasure. David began to be famous in the region for his war exploits and for defeating great kings and nations, as God was with him.

The chapter ends with the listing of David’s administration, including his sons being chief rulers in Israel.

This is the summary of 2nd Samuel chapter 8.
