  Hanun 
  graciously  given  (1.)  The  son  and  successor  of  Nahash,  king  of 
  Moab.  David's  messengers,  sent  on  an  embassy  of  condolence  to

  he  proclaimed  war  against  Hanun.  David's  army,  under  the  command 
  of  Joab,  forthwith  crossed  the  Jordan,  and  gained  a  complete 
  victory  over  the  Moabites  and  their  allies  (2  Sam.  10:1-14)  at 
  Medeba  (q.v.).
