1 Chronicles 14


David Wars against the Philistines

And [4sent 1Hiram 2king 3of Tyre] messengers to David, and timber of cedars, and fabricators of walls, and fabricators of woods, to build for him a house. And David knew that [2prepared 3him 1the  lord] for king over Israel, for [2grew 3in 4stature 1his kingdom] because of his people Israel. And David took still more wives in Jerusalem. And were born to David again sons and daughters. And these are their names of the ones being born to him in Jerusalem -- Shammua and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon, and Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet, and Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia, and Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphalet. And [3heard 1the 2Philistines] that David was anointed king over all Israel, and [4ascended 1all 2the 3Philistines] to seek David. And David heard, and came forth to meet them. And the Philistines came and assembled for battle in the valley of the giants. 10 And David asked through God, saying, Shall I ascend against the Philistines? and will you give them into my hands? And [2said 3to him 1the  lord], Ascend! and I will give them into your hands. 11 And he ascended into Baal Perazim. And [2struck 3them 1David] there. And David said, God cut through my enemies by my hand as a severance of water. On account of this he called the name of that place -- Severance of Baal Perazim. 12 And [3abandoned 4there 1the 2Philistines] their gods. And David spoke, and they were set on fire with fire. 13 And [3proceeded 4yet again 1the 2Philistines], and assembled for battle again in the valley of the giants. 14 And David asked again to God. And [2said 3to him 1God], Do not go after them! turn from them, and come to them near the pear trees! 15 And it will be in your hearing the sound of the rumbling of them in the tips of the pear trees, then you shall enter into the battle, for [2went forth 1God] before you to strike the camp of the Philistines. 16 And David did as [2gave charge 3to him 1God]. And he struck the camp of the Philistines from Gibeon unto Gezer. 17 And [4went out 1the 2name 3of David] in all the lands; and the  lord put the fear of him upon all the nations.
