Chapter 14

1

 

  And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and timber of cedars, with masons and carpenters, to build him a house.  

 

 


2

 

  And David perceived that Jehovah had established him king over Israel, for his kingdom was highly exalted, because of his people Israel.  

 

 


3

 

  And David took more wives at Jerusalem: and David begot more sons and daughters.  

 

 


4

 

  And these are the names of the children which he had in Jerusalem: Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon,  

 

 


5

 

  and Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpelet,  

 

 


6

 

  and Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia,  

 

 


7

 

  and Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphelet.  

 

 


8

 

  And the Philistines heard that David was anointed king over all Israel, and all the Philistines went up to seek David; and David heard [of it], and went out against them.  

 

 


9

 

  And the Philistines came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.  

 

 


10

 

  And David inquired of God saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines, and wilt thou give them into my hand? And Jehovah said to him, Go up; and I will give them into thy hand.  

 

 


11

 

  And they came up to Baal-perazim, and David smote them there; and David said, God has broken in upon mine enemies by my hand, as the breaking forth of waters. Therefore they called the name of that place Baal-perazim.  

 

 


12

 

  And they left their gods there; and David commanded, and they were burned with fire.  

 

 


13

 

  And the Philistines yet again spread themselves in the valley.  

 

 


14

 

  And David inquired again of God; and God said to him, Go not up after them; turn round them and come upon them opposite the mulberry-trees.  

 

 


15

 

  And it shall be, when thou hearest the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry-trees, that then thou shalt go out to battle; for God will have gone forth before thee to smite the army of the Philistines.  

 

 


16

 

  And David did as God commanded him; and they smote the army of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gezer.  

 

 


17

 

  And the fame of David went out into all lands; and Jehovah brought the fear of him upon all the nations.
