Chapter 14

1

 And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar-trees, and masons, and carpenters, to build him a house. 

 


2

 And David perceived that Jehovah had established him king over Israel; for his kingdom was exalted on high, for his people Israel's sake. 

 


3

 And David took more wives at Jerusalem; and David begat more sons and daughters. 

 


4

 And 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

 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

 Now the Philistines had come and made a raid 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 Jehovah said unto him, Go up; for I will deliver them into thy hand. 

 


11

 So they came up to Baal-perazim, and David smote them there; and David said, God hath broken mine enemies by my hand, like the breach of waters. Therefore they called the name of that place Baal-perazim. 

 


12

 And they left their gods there; and David gave commandment, and they were burned with fire. 

 


13

 And the Philistines yet again made a raid in the valley. 

 


14

 And David inquired again of God; and God said unto him, Thou shalt not go up after them: turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry-trees. 

 


15

 And it shall be, when thou hearest the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry-trees, that then thou shalt go out to battle; for God is gone out before thee to smite the host of the Philistines. 

 


16

 And David did as God commanded him: and they smote the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gezer. 

 


17

 And the fame of David went out into all lands; and Jehovah brought the fear of him upon all nations.
