King Hiram of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedarwood, masons, and carpenters to build a palace for David.
So David realized that the LORD had established him as king of Israel and that his kingdom was made famous for the sake of Israel, the LORD's people.
David married more wives in Jerusalem and fathered more sons and daughters.
These are the names of the children who were born to him in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon,
Ibhar, Elishua, Elpelet,
Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia,
Elishama, Beeliada, and Eliphelet.
When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king of Israel, all of them came to attack David. But David heard about it and went out to meet them.
