1 Chron 20:1 And it came to pass, that after the year was expired, at the time that kings go out to battle, Joab led forth the power of 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 destroyed it. 1 Chron 20:1 Then it happened in the spring, at the time when kings go out to battle, that Joab led out the army and ravaged the land of the sons of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah.

And David and all the people returned to Jerusalem. 1 Chron 20:3 He brought out the people who were in it, and cut them with saws and with sharp instruments and with axes. And thus David did to all the cities of the sons of Ammon. Then David and all the people returned to Jerusalem. 1 Chron 20:3 καὶ τὸν λαὸν τὸν ἐν αὐτῇ ἐξήγαγεν καὶ διέπρισεν πρίοσιν καὶ ἐν σκεπάρνοις σιδηροῖς καὶ οὕτως ἐποίησεν Δαυιδ τοῖς πᾶσιν υἱοῖς Αμμων καὶ ἀνέστρεψεν Δαυιδ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ εἰς Ιερουσαλημ
