2 Samuel 5

BBE 1 Then all the tribes of Israel came to David in Hebron and said, Truly, we are your bone and your flesh. NIV 1 All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “We are your own flesh and blood. BBE 2 In the past when Saul was king over us, it was you who went at the head of Israel when they went out or came in: and the Lord said to you, You are to be the keeper of my people Israel and their ruler. NIV 2 In the past, while Saul was king over us, you were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. And the LORD said to you, ‘You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler.’ ” BBE 3 So all the responsible men of Israel came to the king at Hebron; and King David made an agreement with them in Hebron before the Lord: and they put the holy oil on David and made him king over Israel. NIV 3 When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, the king made a covenant with them at Hebron before the LORD, and they anointed David king over Israel. BBE 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he was king for forty years, NIV 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. BBE 5 Ruling over Judah in Hebron for seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem, over all Israel and Judah, for thirty-three years. NIV 5 In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned over all Israel and Judah thirty-three years. BBE 6 And the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the people of the land: and they said to David, You will not come in here, but the blind and the feeble-footed will keep you out; for they said, David will not be able to come in here. 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.” BBE 7 But David took the strong place of Zion, which is the town of David. NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. BBE 8 And that day David said, Whoever makes an attack on the Jebusites, let him go up by the water-pipe, and put to death all the blind and feeble-footed who are hated by David. And this is why they say, The blind and feeble-footed may not come into the house. NIV 8 On that day David had 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.” BBE 9 So David took the strong tower for his living-place, naming it the town of David. And David took in hand the building of the town all round, starting from the Millo. 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 terraces inward. BBE 10 And David became greater and greater; for the Lord, the God of armies, was with him. NIV 10 And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him. BBE 11 And Hiram, king of Tyre, sent men to David, with cedar-trees and woodworkers and stoneworkers: and they made David a house. NIV 11 Now Hiram king of Tyre sent envoys to David, along with cedar logs and carpenters and stonemasons, and they built a palace for David. BBE 12 And David saw that the Lord had made his position safe as king over Israel, and that he had made his kingdom great because of his people Israel. NIV 12 Then David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel and had exalted his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel. BBE 13 And David took more women and wives in Jerusalem, after he had come from Hebron: and he 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. BBE 14 These are the names of those whose birth took place in Jerusalem: Shammua and Shobab and Nathan and Solomon NIV 14 These are the names of the children born to him there: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, BBE 15 And Ibhar and Elishua and Nepheg and Japhia NIV 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, BBE 16 And Elishama and Eliada and Eliphelet. NIV 16 Elishama, Eliada and Eliphelet. BBE 17 And when the Philistines had news that David had been made king over Israel, they all went up in search of David; and David, hearing of it, went down to the strong place. 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. BBE 18 And when the Philistines came, they went in every direction in the valley of Rephaim. NIV 18 Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; BBE 19 And David, desiring directions from the Lord, said, Am I to go up against the Philistines? will you give them up into my hands? And the Lord said, Go up, for I will certainly give up the Philistines into your hands. NIV 19 so David inquired of the LORD, “Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you deliver them into my hands?” The LORD answered him, “Go, for I will surely deliver the Philistines into your hands.” BBE 20 And David went to Baal-perazim, and overcame them there; and he said, The Lord has let the forces fighting against me be broken before me as a wall is broken by rushing waters. So that place was named Baal-perazim. 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. BBE 21 And the Philistines, when they went in flight, did not take their images with them, and David and his men took them away. NIV 21 The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off. BBE 22 And the Philistines came up again, and went in every direction in the valley of Rephaim. NIV 22 Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; BBE 23 And when David went for directions to the Lord, he said, You are not to go up against them in front; but make a circle round them from the back and come on them opposite the spice-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 poplar trees. BBE 24 Then at the sound of footsteps in the tops of the trees, go forward quickly, for the Lord has gone out before you to overcome the army of the Philistines. NIV 24 As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the poplar trees, move quickly, because that will mean the LORD has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.” BBE 25 And David did as the Lord had said; and he overcame the Philistines, attacking them from Gibeon to near Gezer. NIV 25 So David did as the LORD commanded him, and he struck down the Philistines all the way from Gibeon to Gezer.
