Then David and all Israel marched to Jerusalem, that is, Jebus, where the Jebusites lived.
The people who lived in Jebus told David, "You'll never get in here!" But David captured the mountain fortress of Zion, which became David's City.
David had said, "The first one to kill a Jebusite will become commander in chief!" Joab, Zeruiah's son, was the first to attack and so became commander in chief.
David occupied the fortress, so it was renamed David's City.
He also built up the city on all sides, including its own foundations and the surrounding areas, while Joab restored the rest of the city.
David grew increasingly powerful, and the LORD of heavenly forces was with him.
