David Conquers Jerusalem

11:4-9pp -- 2Sa 5:6-10

4 David and all the Israelites marched to Jerusalem (that is, Jebus). The Jebusites1 who lived there 5 said to David, "You will not get in here." Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion, the City of David. 6 David had said, "Whoever leads the attack on the Jebusites will become commander-in-chief." Joab2 son of Zeruiah went up first, and so he received the command. 7 David then took up residence in the fortress, and so it was called the City of David. 8 He built up the city around it, from the supporting terracesa3 to the surrounding wall, while Joab restored the rest of the city. 9 And David became more and more powerful,4 because the LORD Almighty was with him.
