CSB 1 All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, "Here we are, your own flesh and blood. NIV 1 All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “We are your own flesh and blood. CSB 2 Even while Saul was king over us, you were the one who led us out [to battle] and brought us back. The Lord also said to you, 'You will shepherd My people Israel and be ruler 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.’ ” CSB 3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron. King David made a covenant with them at Hebron in the Lord's presence, 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. CSB 4 David was 30 years old when he began his reign; he reigned 40 years. NIV 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. CSB 5 In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned 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. CSB 6 The king and his men marched to Jerusalem against the Jebusites who inhabited the land. The Jebusites had said to David: "You will never get in here. Even the blind and lame can repel you," thinking, "David can't get 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.” CSB 7 Yet David did capture the stronghold of Zion, the city of David. NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. CSB 8 He said that day, "Whoever attacks the Jebusites must go through the water shaft to reach the lame and the blind who are despised by David." For this reason it is said, "The blind and the lame will never enter 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.” CSB 9 David took up residence in the stronghold, which he named the city of David. He built it up all the way around from the supporting terraces 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. CSB 10 David became more and more powerful, and the Lord God of Hosts was with him. NIV 10 And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him.
