2 Samuel 5:6-10 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
6 1And the king and his men went to Jerusalem 2against the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, who said to David, "You will not come in here, but the blind and the lame will ward you off"--thinking, "David cannot come in here." 7 Nevertheless, David took the stronghold of Zion, 3that is, the city of David. 8 And David said on that day, "Whoever would strike the Jebusites, let him get up the water shaft to attack 'the lame and the blind,' who are hated by David's soul." Therefore it is said, "The blind and the lame shall not come into the house." 9 And David lived in the stronghold and called it 4the city of David. And David built the city all around from the 5Millo inward. 10 And David became greater and greater, for the LORD, the God of hosts, was with him.
