Book 09 : NEVIIM - II SAMUEL - Chapter 005


Then came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, and spoke, saying: 'Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh


In times past, when Saul was king over us, it was thou that didst lead out and bring in Israel; and HaShem said to thee: Thou shalt feed My people Israel, and thou shalt be prince over Israel.


So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a covenant with them in Hebron before HaShem; and they anointed David king over Israel


David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years


In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months; and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years over all Israel and Judah


And the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, who spoke unto David, saying: 'Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither'; thinking: 'David cannot come in hither.


Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion; the same is the city of David


And David said on that day: 'Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites, and getteth up to the gutter, and taketh away the lame and the blind, that are hated of David's soul--.' Wherefore they say: 'There are the blind and the lame; he cannot come into the house.


And David dwelt in the stronghold, and called it the city of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward


And David waxed greater and greater; for HaShem, the G-d of hosts, was with him


And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar-trees, and carpenters, and masons; and they built David a house


And David perceived that HaShem had established him king over Israel, and that He had exalted his kingdom for His people Israel's sake


And David took him more concubines and wives out of Jerusalem, after he was come from Hebron; and there were yet sons and daughters born to David


And these are the names of those that were born unto him in Jerusalem: Shammua, and Shobab, and Nathan, and Solomon


and Ibhar, and Elishua, and Nepheg, and Japhia


and Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphelet


And when the Philistines heard that David was anointed king over Israel, all the Philistines went up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold


Now the Philistines had come and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim


And David inquired of HaShem, saying: 'Shall I go up against the Philistines? wilt Thou deliver them into my hand?' And HaShem said unto David: 'Go up; for I will certainly deliver the Philistines into thy hand.


And David came to Baal-perazim, and David smote them there; and he said: 'The HaShem hath broken mine enemies before me, like the breach of waters.' Therefore the name of that place was called Baal-perazim


And they left their images there, and David and his men took them away


And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim


And when David inquired of HaShem, He said: 'Thou shalt not go up; make a circuit behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry-trees


And it shall be, when thou hearest the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry-trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself; for then is HaShem gone out before thee to smite the host of the Philistines.


And David did so, as HaShem commanded him, and smote the Philistines from Geba until thou come to Gezer
