Hadarezer in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
Son of Rehob, king of Zobah. Helped by the Damascus Syrians
(See HADAD); driven by David beyond the river Euphrates (2
Samuel 8:3; 2 Samuel 8:5; 2 Samuel 10:6-9; 1 Chronicles
18:3; 1 Chronicles 19:7-19). After Joab's first repulse of
Ammon and their Syrian allies Hadarezer, undaunted by defeat
twice (2 Samuel 8:3; 2 Samuel 8:5), sent a host under the
command of Shophach to assist his kinsmen of Maachah, Rehob,
and Ishtob; David in person routed them completely at Helam;
thus, the Syrian confederacy was overthrown, Hadarezer's
subordinate princes submitted to David who dedicated to
Jehovah the 1000 "shields" or "weapons (shelet) of gold"
taken in the first war; these were long known as king
David's (Song of Solomon 4:4; 2 Chronicles 23:9). (See
Rezonof Hadarezer's retainers escaped, and with
"bands" marauded the thinly-peopled district between the
Jordan and the Euphrates (2 Kings 5:2; 1 Chronicles 5:18-
22), then became master of Damascus, and as an "adversary"
did "mischief" to Israel in Solomon's days (1 Kings 11:28-
25). (See REZON.) Edom invaded Israel during David's absence
at the Euphrates; Psalm 44 by the sons of Korah alludes to
this. Psalm 60 by David was composed after victory in part
had been gained over Aram Naharaim (Syria of the two floods)
and Aram (Syria) of Zobah the kingdom of Hadarezer, who had
come to help his vassals of Mesopotamia, the region of the
two rivers Tigris and Euphrates; after having conquered the
two Syrias, Joab returned and smote Edom in the valley of
Salt; Psalm 60 refers to the expedition subsequently
undertaken to occupy Edom in revenge for Edom's invasion of

great loss. 1Ch 18:3,4 (B.C. 1035.) After the first repulse of

Under the command of Shophach or Shobach, the captain
of the host, they crossed the Euphrates, joined the other

came from Jerusalem to take the command of the Israelite army.
As on the former occasion, the route was complete.
