1 Chronicles 141Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and timber of cedars, with masons and carpenters, to build him an house. 2And David perceived that the LORD had confirmed him king over Israel, for his kingdom was exalted on high, because of his people Israel. 3And David took more wives at Jerusalem: and David begat more sons and daughters. ▼
▼more: Heb. yet4Now these are the names of his children which he had in Jerusalem; Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon, 5And Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet, 6And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia, 7And Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphalet. ▼
▼Beeliada: also called, Eliada8And when the Philistines heard that David was anointed king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up to seek David. And David heard of it, and went out against them. 9And the Philistines came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim. 10And David enquired of God, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? and wilt thou deliver them into my hand? And the LORD said to him, Go up; for I will deliver them into thy hand. 11So they came up to Baalperazim; and David smote them there. Then David said, God hath broken in upon my enemies by my hand like the breaking forth of waters: therefore they called the name of that place Baalperazim. ▼
▼Baalperazim: that is, A place of breaches12And when they had left their gods there, David gave a commandment, and they were burned with fire. 13And the Philistines yet again spread themselves abroad in the valley. 14Therefore David enquired again of God; and God said to him, Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees. 15And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then thou shalt go out to battle: for God hath gone forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines. 16David therefore did as God commanded him: and they smote the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gazer. ▼
▼Gibeon: also called, Geba17And the fame of David went out into all lands; and the LORD brought the fear of him upon all nations.
