Chapter 14

1

 

  Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar-trees, and masons, and carpenters, to build him a house.  

 

 


2

 

  David perceived that Yahweh had established him king over Israel; for his kingdom was exalted on high, for his people Israel's sake.  

 

 


3

 

  David took more wives at Jerusalem; and David became the father of more sons and daughters.  

 

 


4

 

  These are the names of the children whom 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

 

  When the Philistines heard that David was anointed king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up to seek David: and David heard of it, and went out against them.  

 

 


9

 

  Now the Philistines had come and made a raid in the valley of Rephaim.  

 

 


10

 

  David inquired of God, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? and will you deliver them into my hand? Yahweh said to him, Go up; for I will deliver them into your hand.  

 

 


11

 

  So they came up to Baal-perazim, and David struck them there; and David said, God has broken my enemies by my hand, like the breach of waters. Therefore they called the name of that place Baal-perazim.  

 

 


12

 

  They left their gods there; and David gave commandment, and they were burned with fire.  

 

 


13

 

  The Philistines yet again made a raid in the valley.  

 

 


14

 

  David inquired again of God; and God said to him, You shall not go up after them: turn away from them, and come on them over against the mulberry-trees.  

 

 


15

 

  It shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry-trees, that then you shall go out to battle; for God is gone out before you to strike the host of the Philistines.  

 

 


16

 

  David did as God commanded him: and they struck the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gezer.  

 

 


17

 

  The fame of David went out into all lands; and Yahweh brought the fear of him on all nations.
