And the king and his menwent to Jerusalem unto the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto David,saying , Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking ,aDavid cannot come in hither.
Nevertheless Davidtook the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.8
And Davidsaid on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David'ssoul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said , The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.9
So Daviddwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David. And Davidbuilt round about from Millo and inward.10
And Davidwentbon , and grew great, and the LORDGod of hosts was with him.
