1: Now 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 the LORD had confirmed him king over Israel, for his kingdom was exalted on high, because of his people Israel. 3: And David took more wives at Jerusalem: and David begat more sons and daughters. 4: Now these [are] the names of [his] children which he had in Jerusalem; Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon, 5: And Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet, 6: And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia, 7: And Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphalet. 8: And 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: 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 deliver them into my hand? And the LORD said to him, Go up; for I will deliver them into thy hand. 11: So they came up to Baal-perazim; and David smote them there. Then David said, God hath broken in upon my enemies by my hand like the breaking forth of waters: therefore they called the name of that place Baal-perazim. 12: And when they had left their gods there, David gave a commandment, and they were burned with fire. 13: And the Philistines yet again spread themselves abroad in the valley. 14: Therefore David inquired again of God: and God said to him, Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees. 15: And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, then thou shalt go out to battle: for God hath gone forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines. 16: David therefore did as God commanded him: and they smote the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gazer. 17: And the fame of David went out into all lands; and the LORD brought the fear of him upon all nations.
