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