2 Samuel 5

NCV 1 Then all the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said to him, "Look, we are your own family. NIV 1 All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “We are your own flesh and blood. NCV 2 Even when Saul was king, you were the one who led Israel in battle. The Lord said to you, 'You will be a shepherd for my people Israel. You will be their leader.'" 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.’ ” NCV 3 So all the older leaders of Israel came to King David at Hebron, and he made an agreement with them in Hebron in the presence of the Lord. Then they poured oil on David to make 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. NCV 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he ruled forty years. NIV 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. NCV 5 He was king over Judah in Hebron for seven years and six months, and he was king over all Israel and Judah in Jerusalem 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. NCV 6 When the king and his men went to Jerusalem to attack the Jebusites who lived there, the Jebusites said to David, "You can't get inside our city. Even the blind and the crippled can stop you." They thought David could not enter their city. 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.” NCV 7 But David did take the city of Jerusalem with its strong walls, and it became the City of David. NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. NCV 8 That day David said to his men, "To defeat the Jebusites you must go through the water tunnel. Then you can reach those 'crippled' and 'blind' enemies. This is why people say, 'The blind and the crippled may not enter 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.” NCV 9 So David lived in the strong, walled city and called it the City of David. David built more buildings around it, beginning where the land was filled in. He also built more buildings inside the city. 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. NCV 10 He became stronger and stronger, because the Lord God All-Powerful was with him. NIV 10 And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him. NCV 11 Hiram king of the city of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar logs, carpenters, and stonecutters. 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. NCV 12 Then David knew that the Lord really had made him king of Israel and that the Lord had made his kingdom great because the Lord loved 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. NCV 13 After he came from Hebron, David took for himself more slave women and wives in Jerusalem. More sons and daughters were 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. NCV 14 These are the names of the sons born to David in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, NIV 14 These are the names of the children born to him there: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, NCV 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, NIV 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, NCV 16 Elishama, Eliada, and Eliphelet.

But when David heard the news, he 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. NCV 18 The Philistines came and camped in the Valley of Rephaim. NIV 18 Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; NCV 19 David asked the Lord, "Should I attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?" The Lord said to David, "Go! I will certainly hand them 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.” NCV 20 So David went to Baal Perazim and defeated the Philistines there. David said, "Like a flood of water, the Lord has broken through my enemies in front of me." So David named the 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. NCV 21 The Philistines left their idols behind at Baal Perazim, so David and his men carried them away. NIV 21 The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off. NCV 22 Once again the Philistines came and camped at the Valley of Rephaim. NIV 22 Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; NCV 23 When David prayed to the Lord, he answered, "Don't attack the Philistines from the front. Instead, go around and attack 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. NCV 24 When you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, act quickly. I, the Lord, will have 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.” NCV 25 So David did what the Lord commanded. He defeated the Philistines and chased them all the way from Gibeon 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.
