1 Chronicles 19:1-19
1. And it came to pass after this, that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon died, and his son reigned in his stead.
2. And David said, I will show kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, because his father showed kindness to me. So David sent messengers to comfort him concerning his father. And Davids servants came into the land of the children of Ammon to Hanun, to comfort him.
3. But the princes of the children of Ammon said to Hanun, Thinkest thou that David doth honor thy father, in that he hath sent comforters unto thee? are not his servants come unto thee to search, and to overthrow, and to spy out the land?
4. So Hanun took Davids servants, and shaved them, and cut off their garments in the middle, even to their buttocks, and sent them away.
5. Then there went certain persons, and told David how the men were served. And he sent to meet them; for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return.
6. And when the children of Ammon saw that they had made themselves odious to David, Hanun and the children of Ammon sent a thousand talents of silver to hire them chariots and horsemen out of Mesopotamia, and out of Arammaacah, and out of Zobah.
7. So they hired them thirty and two thousand chariots, and the king of Maacah and his people, who came and encamped before Medeba. And the children of Ammon gathered themselves together from their cities, and came to battle.
8. And when David heard of it, he sent Joab, and all the host of the mighty men.
9. And the children of Ammon came out, and put the battle in array at the gate of the city: and the kings that were come were by themselves in the field.
10. Now when Joab saw that the battle was set against him before and behind, he chose of all the choice men of Israel, and put them in array against the Syrians.
11. And the rest of the people he committed into the hand of Abishai his brother; and they put themselves in array against the children of Ammon.
12. And he said, If the Syrians be too strong for me, then thou shalt help me; but if the children of Ammon be too strong for thee, then I will help thee.
13. Be of good courage, and let us play the man for our people, and for the cities of our God: and Jehovah do that which seemeth him good.
14. So Joab and the people that were with him drew nigh before the Syrians unto the battle; and they fled before him.
15. And when the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians were fled, they likewise fled before Abishai his brother, and entered into the city. Then Joab came to Jerusalem.
16. And when the Syrians saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they sent messengers, and drew forth the Syrians that were beyond the River, with Shophach the captain of the host of Hadarezer at their head.
17. And it was told David; and he gathered all Israel together, and passed over the Jordan, and came upon them, and set the battle in array against them. So when David had put the battle in array against the Syrians, they fought with him.
18. And the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew of the Syrians the men of seven thousand chariots, and forty thousand footmen, and killed Shophach the captain of the host.
19. And when the servants of Hadarezer saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they made peace with David, and served him: neither would the Syrians help the children of Ammon any more.

1 Chronicles 20:1-8
1. And it came to pass, at the time of the return of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that Joab led forth the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried at Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rabbah, and overthrew it.
2. And David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it; and it was set upon Davids head: and he brought forth the spoil of the city, exceeding much.
3. And he brought forth the people that were therein, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. And thus did David unto all the cities of the children of Ammon. And David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.
4. And it came to pass after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the Philistines: then Sibbecai the Hushathite slew Sippai, of the sons of the giant; and they were subdued.
5. And there was again war with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weavers beam.
6. And there was again war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot; and he also was born unto the giant.
7. And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea Davids brother slew him.
8. These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.

Psalms 78:26-33
26. He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens; And by his power he guided the south wind.
27. He rained flesh also upon them as the dust, And winged birds as the sand of the seas:
28. And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, Round about their habitations.
29. So they did eat, and were well filled; And he gave them their own desire.
30. They were not estranged from that which they desired, Their food was yet in their mouths,
31. When the anger of God went up against them, And slew of the fattest of them, And smote down the young men of Israel.
32. For all this they sinned still, And believed not in his wondrous works.
33. Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, And their years in terror.

Proverbs 19:27-29
27. Cease, my son, to hear instruction Only to err from the words of knowledge.
28. A worthless witness mocketh at justice; And the mouth of the wicked swalloweth iniquity.
29. Judgments are prepared for scoffers, And stripes for the back of fools.

Acts 8:26-40
26. But an angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza: the same is desert.
27. And he arose and went: and behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasure, who had come to Jerusalem to worship;
28. and he was returning and sitting in his chariot, and was reading the prophet Isaiah.
29. And the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.
30. And Philip ran to him, and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
31. And he said, How can I, except some one shall guide me? And he besought Philip to come up and sit with him.
32. Now the passage of the Scripture which he was reading was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; And as a lamb before his shearer is dumb, So he openeth not his mouth:
33. In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: His generation who shall declare? For his life is taken from the earth.
34. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other?
35. And Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture, preached unto him Jesus.
36. And as they went on the way, they came unto a certain water; and the eunuch saith, Behold, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
37. And Philip said, If thou believest with all thy heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
38. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they both went down into the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him.
39. And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip; and the eunuch saw him no more, for he went on his way rejoicing.
40. But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached the gospel to all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
