Moabites became David’s servants
1 Chronicles 18:2
18:2 Moabites became David’s servants. Many of Israel’s long-time enemies were subjugated by David. This included not only the Moabites (David’s great grandmother, Ruth, was a native of Moab) but also the Philistines (I Chronicles 18:1), the Syrians (I Chronicles 18:5) the Ammonites and Amalekites (I Chronicles 18:11), and the Edomites (I Chronicles 18:13). More details of these conquests are given in I Chronicles 19–20. David’s kingdom extended, for a while, practically to the boundaries long before promised by God to Abraham (Genesis 15:18-21).
