Then cameH935 allH3605 the tribesH7626 of IsraelH3478 to DavidH1732 to Hebron,H2275 and spoke,H559 saying,H559 Behold,H2005 we are your boneH6106 and your flesh.H1320
AlsoH1571 in timeH865 H8543 past,H8032 when SaulH7586 was kingH4428 overH5921 us, you wereH1961 he that ledH3318 out and broughtH935 in Israel:H3478 and the LORDH3068 saidH559 to you, You shall feedH7462 my peopleH5971 Israel,H3478 and you shall be a captainH5057 overH5921 Israel.H3478
So allH3605 the eldersH2205 of IsraelH3478 cameH935 to the kingH4428 to Hebron;H2275 and kingH4428 DavidH1732 madeH3772 a leagueH1285 with them in HebronH2275 beforeH6440 the LORD:H3068 and they anointedH4886 DavidH1732 kingH4428 overH5921 Israel.H3478
DavidH1732 was thirtyH7970 yearsH8141 oldH1121 when he began to reign,H4427 and he reignedH4427 fortyH705 years.H8141
In HebronH2275 he reignedH4427 overH5921 JudahH3063 sevenH7651 yearsH8141 and sixH8337 months:H2320 and in JerusalemH3389 he reignedH4427 thirtyH7970 and threeH7969 yearsH8141 overH5921 allH3605 IsraelH3478 and Judah.H3063
And the kingH4428 and his menH582 wentH3212 to JerusalemH3389 to the Jebusites,H2983 the inhabitantsH3427 of the land:H776 which spokeH559 to David,H1732 saying,H559 ExceptH3588 H518 you takeH5493 awayH5493 the blindH5787 and the lame,H6455 you shall not comeH935 in here: thinking,H559 DavidH1732 cannotH3808 comeH935 in here.
Nevertheless DavidH1732 tookH3920 the strongH4686 holdH4686 of Zion:H6726 the sameH1931 is the cityH5892 of David.H1732
And DavidH1732 saidH559 on that day,H3117 Whoever getsH5060 up to the gutter,H6794 and smitesH5221 the Jebusites,H2983 and the lameH6455 and the blind H5787that are hatedH8130 of David'sH1732 soul,H5315 he shall be chief and captain. WhyH5921 H3651 they said,H559 The blindH5787 and the lameH6455 shall not comeH935 intoH413 the house.H1004
So DavidH1732 dwelledH3427 in the fort,H4686 and calledH7121 it the cityH5892 of David.H1732 And DavidH1732 builtH1129 roundH5439 about from MilloH4407 and inward.H1004
And DavidH1732 wentH3212 on, and grew great,H1419 and the LORDH3068 GodH430 of hostsH6635 was with him.
And HiramH2438 kingH4428 of TyreH6865 sentH7971 messengersH4397 to David,H1732 and cedarH730 trees,H6086 and carpenters,H2796 H6086 and masons:H2796 H68 and they builtH1129 DavidH1732 an house.H1004
And DavidH1732 perceivedH3045 that the LORDH3068 had establishedH3559 him kingH4428 overH5921 Israel,H3478 and that he had exaltedH5375 his kingdomH4467 for his peopleH5971 Israel'sH3478 sake.H5668
And DavidH1732 tookH3947 him moreH5750 concubinesH6370 and wivesH802 out of Jerusalem,H3389 afterH310 he was comeH935 from Hebron:H2275 and there were yetH5750 sonsH1121 and daughtersH1323 bornH3205 to David.H1732
And theseH428 be the namesH8034 of those that were bornH3209 to him in Jerusalem;H3389 Shammuah,H8051 and Shobab,H7727 and Nathan,H5416 and Solomon,H8010
IbharH2984 also, and Elishua,H474 and Nepheg,H5298 and Japhia,H3309
And Elishama,H476 and Eliada,H450 and Eliphalet.H467
But when the PhilistinesH6430 heardH8085 that they had anointedH4886 DavidH1732 kingH4428 overH5921 Israel,H3478 allH3605 the PhilistinesH6430 cameH5927 up to seekH1245 David;H1732 and DavidH1732 heardH8085 of it, and wentH3381 downH3381 to the hold.H4686
The PhilistinesH6430 also cameH935 and spreadH5203 themselves in the valleyH6010 of Rephaim.H7497
And DavidH1732 inquiredH7592 of the LORD,H3068 saying,H559 Shall I goH5927 up to the Philistines?H6430 will you deliverH5414 them into my hand?H3027 And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to David,H1732 GoH5927 up: for I will doubtless deliverH5414 the PhilistinesH6430 into your hand.H3027
And DavidH1732 cameH935 to Baalperazim,H1188 and DavidH1732 smoteH5221 them there,H8033 and said,H559 The LORDH3068 has brokenH6555 forth on my enemiesH341 beforeH6440 me, as the breachH6556 of waters.H4325 ThereforeH5921 H3651 he calledH7121 the nameH8034 of that placeH4725 Baalperazim.H1188
And thereH8033 they leftH5800 their images,H6091 and DavidH1732 and his menH582 burnedH5375 them.
And the PhilistinesH6430 cameH5927 up yetH5750 again,H3254 and spreadH5203 themselves in the valleyH6010 of Rephaim.H7497
And when DavidH1732 inquiredH7592 of the LORD,H3068 he said,H559 You shall not goH5927 up; but fetch a compassH5437 behindH310 them, and comeH935 on them overH4136 againstH4136 the mulberryH1057 trees.
And let it be, when you hearH8085 the soundH6963 of a goingH6807 in the topsH7218 of the mulberryH1057 trees, that thenH227 you shall bestirH2782 yourself: for thenH227 shall the LORDH3068 goH3318 out beforeH6440 you, to smiteH5221 the hostH4264 of the Philistines.H6430
And DavidH1732 didH6213 so,H3651 as the LORDH3068 had commandedH6680 him; and smoteH5221 the PhilistinesH6430 from GebaH1387 untilH5704 you comeH935 to Gazer.H1507
