2 Samuel 5:6-25

NLT 6 David then led his men to Jerusalem to fight against the Jebusites, the original inhabitants of the land who were living there. The Jebusites taunted David, saying, “You’ll never get in here! Even the blind and lame could keep you out!” For the Jebusites thought they were safe. NIV 6 The king and his men marched to Jerusalem to attack the Jebusites, who lived there. The Jebusites said to David, "You will not get in here; even the blind and the lame can ward you off." They thought, "David cannot get in here." NLT 7 But David captured the fortress of Zion, which is now called the City of David. NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion, the City of David. NLT 8 On the day of the attack, David said to his troops, “I hate those ‘lame’ and ‘blind’ Jebusites. Whoever attacks them should strike by going into the city through the water tunnel. ” That is the origin of the saying, “The blind and the lame may not enter the house.” NIV 8 On that day, David said, "Anyone who conquers the Jebusites will have to use the water shaft to reach those 'lame and blind' who are David's enemies. " That is why they say, "The 'blind and lame' will not enter the palace." NLT 9 So David made the fortress his home, and he called it the City of David. He extended the city, starting at the supporting terraces and working inward. NIV 9 David then took up residence in the fortress and called it the City of David. He built up the area around it, from the supporting terraces inward. NLT 10 And David became more and more powerful, because the LORD God of Heaven’s Armies was with him. NIV 10 And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him. NLT 11 Then King Hiram of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar timber and carpenters and stonemasons, and they built David a palace. NIV 11 Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar logs and carpenters and stonemasons, and they built a palace for David. NLT 12 And David realized that the LORD had confirmed him as king over Israel and had blessed his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel. NIV 12 And David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel and had exalted his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel. NLT 13 After moving from Hebron to Jerusalem, David married more concubines and wives, and they had more sons and daughters. NIV 13 After he left Hebron, David took more concubines and wives in Jerusalem, and more sons and daughters were born to him. NLT 14 These are the names of David’s sons who were born in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, NIV 14 These are the names of the children born to him there: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, NLT 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, NIV 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, NLT 16 Elishama, Eliada, and Eliphelet.

But David was told they were coming, so he went into the stronghold. NIV 17 When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over Israel, they went up in full force to search for him, but David heard about it and went down to the stronghold. NLT 18 The Philistines arrived and spread out across the valley of Rephaim. NIV 18 Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; NLT 19 So David asked the LORD , “Should I go out to fight the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?” The LORD replied to David, “Yes, go ahead. I will certainly hand them over to you.” NIV 19 so David inquired of the LORD, "Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?" The LORD answered him, "Go, for I will surely hand the Philistines over to you." NLT 20 So David went to Baal-perazim and defeated the Philistines there. “The LORD did it!” David exclaimed. “He burst through my enemies like a raging flood!” So he named that place Baal-perazim (which means “the Lord who bursts through”). NIV 20 So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, "As waters break out, the LORD has broken out against my enemies before me." So that place was called Baal Perazim. NLT 21 The Philistines had abandoned their idols there, so David and his men confiscated them. NIV 21 The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off. NLT 22 But after a while the Philistines returned and again spread out across the valley of Rephaim. NIV 22 Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; NLT 23 And again David asked the LORD what to do. “Do not attack them straight on,” the LORD replied. “Instead, circle around behind and attack them near the poplar trees. NIV 23 so David inquired of the LORD, and he answered, "Do not go straight up, but circle around behind them and attack them in front of the balsam trees. NLT 24 When you hear a sound like marching feet in the tops of the poplar trees, be on the alert! That will be the signal that the LORD is moving ahead of you to strike down the Philistine army.” NIV 24 As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, move quickly, because that will mean the LORD has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army." NLT 25 So David did what the LORD commanded, and he struck down the Philistines all the way from Gibeon to Gezer. NIV 25 So David did as the LORD commanded him, and he struck down the Philistines all the way from Gibeon to Gezer.
