2 Samuel 12:26
And Joab fought against Rabbah of the children of Ammon, and took the royal city.
And Joab fought against Rabbah of the children of Ammon,.... Of his being sent against it, and of his besieging it, we read in
2 Samuel 11:1; but it can hardly be thought that he had been so long besieging it, as that David had two children by Bathsheba; but the account of the finishing of it is placed here, that the story concerning Bathsheba might lie together without any interruption:
and took the royal city; or that part of it in which the king's palace was, and which, as Abarbinel observes, was without the city, as the palaces of kings now usually are.
