Now Hiram 2361 king of Tyre sent4 messengers to David, and timber of cedars, with masons 7023 and carpenters, 6086 to build2 him an house.
And David perceived4 that the LORD had confirmed52 him king over Israel, for his kingdom was lifted up8 on high, because of his people Israel.
And David took4 more wives at Jerusalem: and David begat55 more sons and daughters.
Now these [are] the names of [his] children7 which he had in Jerusalem; Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon,
And Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet,
And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia,
And Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphalet.
And when the Philistines heard4 that David was anointed8 king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up4 to seek15 David. And David heard4 [of it], and went out4 against them.
And the Philistines came1 and spread4 themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
And David enquired4 of God, saying,2 Shall I go up4 against the Philistines? and wilt thou deliver1 them into mine hand? And the LORD said4 unto him, Go up;3 for I will deliver1 them into thine hand.
So they came up4 to Baalperazim; and David smote55 them there. Then David said,4 God hath broken in1 upon mine enemies6 by mine hand like the breaking forth of waters: therefore they called1 the name of that place Baalperazim.
And when they had left4 their gods there, David gave a commandment,4 and they were burned11 with fire.
And the Philistines yet again55 spread themselves abroad4 in the valley.
Therefore David enquired4 again of God; and God said4 unto him, Go not up4 after them; turn away54 from them, and come1 upon them over against the mulberry trees.
And it shall be, when thou shalt hear2 a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, [that] then thou shalt go out4 to battle: for God is gone forth1 before thee to smite53 the host of the Philistines.
David therefore did4 as God commanded14 him: and they smote55 the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gazer.
And the fame of David went out4 into all lands; and the LORD brought1 the fear of him upon all nations.
