Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, with masons and carpenters, to build him a house.
So David knew that the Lord had established him as king over Israel, for his kingdom was highly exalted for the sake of His people Israel.
Then David took more wives in Jerusalem, and David begot more sons and daughters.
And these are the names of his children whom he had in Jerusalem: Shammua, a Shobab, Nathan, Solomon,
Ibhar, Elishua, b Elpelet, c6
Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia,
Elishama, Beeliada, d and Eliphelet.
Now when the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up to search for David. And David heard of it and went out against them.
Then the Philistines went and made a raid on the Valley of Rephaim.
And David inquired of God, saying, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver them into my hand?" And the Lord said to him, "Go up, for I will deliver them into your hand."
So they went up to Baal Perazim, and David defeated them there. Then David said, "God has broken through my enemies by my hand like a breakthrough of water." Therefore they called the name of that place Baal Perazim. e
