2 Samuel 5

DBY 1 Then came all the tribes of Israel to David to Hebron, and spoke, saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh. NIV 1 All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “We are your own flesh and blood. DBY 2 Even aforetime, when Saul was king over us, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel; and Jehovah said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be prince over Israel. 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.’ ” DBY 3 And all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a covenant with them in Hebron before Jehovah; and they anointed David 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. DBY 4 David was thirty years old when he began to reign; he reigned forty years. NIV 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. DBY 5 In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months; and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty-three years over all Israel and Judah. 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. DBY 6 And the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land; and they spoke to David, saying, Thou shalt not come in hither, but the blind and the lame will drive thee back; as much as to say, David will not come in hither. 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.” DBY 7 But David took the stronghold of Zion, which is the city of David. NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. DBY 8 And David said on that day, Whoever smites the Jebusites and gets up to the watercourse, and the lame and the blind hated of David's soul ...! Therefore they say, The blind and the lame shall 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.” DBY 9 So David dwelt in the stronghold, and called it the city of David. And David built round about from the Millo and 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 terraces inward. DBY 10 And David became continually greater; and Jehovah the God of hosts was with him. NIV 10 And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him. DBY 11 And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and timber of cedars, and carpenters, and masons; and they built 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. DBY 12 And David perceived that Jehovah had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom 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. DBY 13 And David took him more concubines and wives out of Jerusalem, after he had come from Hebron; and there were yet sons and daughters born to David. NIV 13 After he left Hebron, David took more concubines and wives in Jerusalem, and more sons and daughters were born to him. DBY 14 And these are the names of those that were born to him 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, DBY 15 and Ibhar, and Elishua, and Nepheg, and Japhia, NIV 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, DBY 16 and Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphelet. NIV 16 Elishama, Eliada and Eliphelet. DBY 17 And the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, and all the Philistines went up to seek David; and David heard [of it], and went down to 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. DBY 18 And the Philistines came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim. NIV 18 Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; DBY 19 And David inquired of Jehovah, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? wilt thou give them into my hand? And Jehovah said to David, Go up; for I will certainly give the Philistines into thy hand. 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.” DBY 20 And David came to Baal-perazim, and David smote them there; and he said, Jehovah has broken in upon mine enemies before me, as the breaking forth of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place 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. DBY 21 And they left their images there, and David and his men took them away. NIV 21 The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off. DBY 22 And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim. NIV 22 Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; DBY 23 And David inquired of Jehovah; and he said, Thou shalt not go up; turn round behind them and come upon them opposite the mulberry-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. DBY 24 And it shall be, when thou hearest a sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry-trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself; for then will Jehovah have gone forth before thee, to smite 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.” DBY 25 And David did so, as Jehovah had commanded him; and smote the Philistines from Geba until thou comest 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.
