The Bible twice relates, in Samuel 5:17-25/1 Chronicles 14:8-17, Davidís initial pair of victories over the Philistines. This essay focuses on a third version of Davidís triumphs, i.e. that of Josephus in his Ant 7.70-77, comprising this in detail with its two Biblical parallels (as represented by MT, Codex Vaticanus and the LucianictAntiochene MSS of the LXX, the Targums, and the Vulgate).
