WBT 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. WBT 2 Also in time past, when Saul was king over us, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the LORD said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain 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.’ ” WBT 3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a league with them in Hebron before the LORD: 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. WBT 4 David [was] thirty years old when he began to reign, [and] he reigned forty years. NIV 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. WBT 5 In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months: and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years over all Israel and Judah.

WBT 6 And the king and his men went to Jerusalem to the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: who spoke to David, saying, Except thou shalt take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking, David cannot 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.” WBT 7 Nevertheless, David took the strong hold of Zion: the same [is] the city of David. NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. WBT 8 And David said on that day, Whoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, [that are] hated by David's soul, [he shall be chief and captain]: Wherefore they said, 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.” WBT 9 So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David. And David built around from 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.

WBT 14 And these [are] the names of those that were born to him in Jerusalem; Shammuah, and Shobab, and Nathan, and Solomon, NIV 14 These are the names of the children born to him there: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, WBT 15 Ibhar also, and Elishua, and Nepheg, and Japhia, NIV 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, WBT 16 And Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphalet.

Will you deliver them into my hands?” The LORD answered him, “Go, for I will surely deliver the Philistines into your hands.” WBT 20 And David came to Baal-perazim, and David smote them there, and said, The LORD hath broken forth upon my enemies before me, as the breach 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.
