2 Samuel 5:6-25

NAS 6 Now the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, and they said to David, "You shall not come in here, but the blind and lame will turn you away "; thinking, "David cannot enter 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.” NAS 7 Nevertheless, David captured the stronghold of Zion, that is the city of David. NIV 7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. NAS 8 David said on that day, "Whoever would strike the Jebusites, let him reach the lame and the blind, who are hated by David's soul, through the water tunnel." Therefore they say, "The blind or 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.” NAS 9 So David lived in the stronghold and called it the city of David. And David built all around from the 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. NAS 10 David became greater and greater, for 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. NAS 11 Then Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David with cedar trees and carpenters and stonemasons ; and they built a house 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. NAS 12 And David realized that the LORD had established him as king over Israel, and that He had exalted his kingdom for the sake of 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. NAS 13 Meanwhile David took more concubines and wives from Jerusalem, after he came from Hebron; and 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. NAS 14 Now these are the names of those who were 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, NAS 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, NIV 15 Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia, NAS 16 Elishama, Eliada and Eliphelet. NIV 16 Elishama, Eliada and Eliphelet. NAS 17 When the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines went up to seek out David; and when David heard of it, 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. NAS 18 Now the Philistines came and spread themselves out in the valley of Rephaim. NIV 18 Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; NAS 19 Then David inquired of the LORD , saying, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You give them into my hand?" And the LORD said to David, "Go up, for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand." 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.” NAS 20 So David came to Baal-perazim and defeated them there; and he said, "The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters." Therefore he named 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. NAS 21 They abandoned their idols there, so David and his men carried them away. NIV 21 The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off. NAS 22 Now the Philistines came up once again and spread themselves out in the valley of Rephaim. NIV 22 Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; NAS 23 When David inquired of the LORD , He said, "You shall not go directly up; 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. NAS 24 "It shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, then you shall act promptly, for then the LORD will have gone out before you to strike the army of the Philistines." 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.” NAS 25 Then David did so, just as the LORD had commanded him, and struck down the Philistines from Geba as far as Gezer. NIV 25 So David did as the LORD commanded him, and he struck down the Philistines all the way from Gibeon to Gezer.
