1 H2438 Now Hiram [H8676] H2361 H4428 king H6865 of Tyre H7971 sent [H8799] H4397 messengers H1732 to David H6086 , and timber H730 of cedars H7023 , with masons H2796 and carpenters H1129 , to build [H8800] H1004 him an house.
2 H1732 And David H3045 perceived [H8799] H3068 that the LORD H3559 had confirmed [H8689] H4428 him king H3478 over Israel H4438 , for his kingdom H5375 was lifted up [H8738] H4605 on high H5971 , because of his people H3478 Israel.
3 H1732 And David H3947 took [H8799] H802 more wives H3389 at Jerusalem H1732 : and David H3205 begat [H8686] H1121 more sons H1323 and daughters.
4 H8034 Now these are the names H3205 of his children [H8803] H3389 which he had in Jerusalem H8051 ; Shammua H7727 , and Shobab H5416 , Nathan H8010 , and Solomon,
8 H6430 And when the Philistines H8085 heard [H8799] H1732 that David H4886 was anointed [H8738] H4428 king H3478 over all Israel H6430 , all the Philistines H5927 went up [H8799] H1245 to seek [H8763] H1732 David H1732 . And David H8085 heard [H8799] H3318 of it, and went out [H8799] H6440 against them.
9 H6430 And the Philistines H935 came [H8804] H6584 and spread [H8799] H6010 themselves in the valley H7497 of Rephaim.
10 H1732 And David H7592 enquired [H8799] H430 of God H559 , saying [H8800] H5927 , Shall I go up [H8799] H6430 against the Philistines H5414 ? and wilt thou deliver [H8804] H3027 them into mine hand H3068 ? And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H5927 unto him, Go up [H8798] H5414 ; for I will deliver [H8804] H3027 them into thine hand.
11 H5927 So they came up [H8799] H1188 to Baalperazim H1732 ; and David H5221 smote [H8686] H1732 them there. Then David H559 said [H8799] H430 , God H6555 hath broken in [H8804] H341 upon mine enemies [H8802] H3027 by mine hand H6556 like the breaking forth H4325 of waters H7121 : therefore they called [H8804] H8034 the name H4725 of that place H1188 Baalperazim.
12 H5800 And when they had left [H8799] H430 their gods H1732 there, David H559 gave a commandment [H8799] H8313 , and they were burned [H8735] H784 with fire.
13 H6430 And the Philistines H3254 yet again [H8686] H6584 spread themselves abroad [H8799] H6010 in the valley.
14 H1732 Therefore David H7592 enquired [H8799] H430 again of God H430 ; and God H559 said [H8799] H5927 unto him, Go not up [H8799] H310 after H5437 them; turn away [H8685] H935 from them, and come [H8804] H4136 upon them over against H1057 the mulberry trees.
15 H8085 And it shall be, when thou shalt hear [H8800] H6963 a sound H6807 of going H7218 in the tops H1057 of the mulberry trees H3318 , that then thou shalt go out [H8799] H4421 to battle H430 : for God H3318 is gone forth [H8804] H6440 before H5221 thee to smite [H8687] H4264 the host H6430 of the Philistines.
16 H1732 David H6213 therefore did [H8799] H430 as God H6680 commanded [H8765] H5221 him: and they smote [H8686] H4264 the host H6430 of the Philistines H1391 from Gibeon H1507 even to Gazer.
