2 Samuel 5:6-10

NLT 6 David then led his men to Jerusalem to fight against the Jebusites, the original inhabitants of the land who were living there. The Jebusites taunted David, saying, “You’ll never get in here! Even the blind and lame could keep you out!” For the Jebusites thought they were safe. 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.” NLT 7 But David captured the fortress of Zion, which is now called the City of David. NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. NLT 8 On the day of the attack, David said to his troops, “I hate those ‘lame’ and ‘blind’ Jebusites. Whoever attacks them should strike by going into the city through the water tunnel. ” That is the origin of the saying, “The blind and the lame may not 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.” NLT 9 So David made the fortress his home, and he called it the City of David. He extended the city, starting at the supporting terraces and working 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. NLT 10 And David became more and more powerful, because the LORD God of Heaven’s Armies was with him. NIV 10 And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him.
