2 Samuel 5

GW 1 All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron. "We are your own flesh and blood," they said. NIV 1 All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “We are your own flesh and blood. GW 2 "Even in the past when Saul ruled us, you were the one who led Israel in battle. The LORD has said to you, 'You will be shepherd of my people Israel, the leader of 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.’ ” GW 3 All the leaders of Israel had come to Hebron. King David made an agreement with them at Hebron in front of the LORD. So they anointed David king of 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. GW 4 David was 30 years old when he became king, and he ruled for 40 years. NIV 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. GW 5 In Hebron he ruled Judah for seven years and six months. In Jerusalem he ruled for 33 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. GW 6 The king and his men went to Jerusalem to attack the Jebusites, who lived in that region. The Jebusites told David, "You will never get in here. Even the blind and the lame could turn you away" (meaning that David could never get in there). 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.” GW 7 But David captured the fortress Zion (that is, the City of David). NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. GW 8 That day David said, "Whoever wants to defeat the Jebusites must reach the lame and the blind who hate me by using the water shaft." So there is a saying, "The blind and the lame will not get into the palace." 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.” GW 9 David lived in the fortress and called it the City of David. He built the city [of Jerusalem] around it from the Millo to the palace. 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. GW 10 David continued to grow more powerful because the LORD God of Armies was with him. NIV 10 And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him. GW 11 Then King Hiram of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedarwood, carpenters, and stonemasons. They built a palace for David. 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. GW 12 So David realized that the LORD had established him as king of Israel and made his kingship famous for the sake of Israel, the LORD's people. 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. GW 13 David married more concubines and wives from Jerusalem after he had come there from Hebron, and he fathered 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. GW 14 These are the names of the children born to him in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, NIV 14 These are the names of the children born to him there: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, GW 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, NIV 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, GW 16 Elishama, Eliada, and Eliphelet. NIV 16 Elishama, Eliada and Eliphelet. GW 17 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 to the fortress. 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. GW 18 The Philistines had come and overrun the valley of Rephaim. NIV 18 Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; GW 19 David asked the LORD, "Should I attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?" The LORD answered David, "Attack! I will certainly hand the Philistines over to you." 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.” GW 20 So David went to Baal Perazim and defeated the Philistines there. He said, "The LORD has overwhelmed my enemies in front of me like an overwhelming flood." That is why that place is called Baal Perazim [The Lord Overwhelms]. 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. GW 21 The Philistines left their idols there, so David and his men carried the idols away. NIV 21 The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off. GW 22 The Philistines again attacked and overran the valley of Rephaim. NIV 22 Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; GW 23 David asked the LORD, and he answered, "Don't attack now, but circle around behind them, and come at them in front of the balsam 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. GW 24 When you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, act immediately because the LORD has gone ahead of you to defeat the Philistine army." 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.” GW 25 David did as the LORD ordered him and defeated the Philistines from Geba 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.
