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.
