King James Version1 Chronicles14

1 Chronicles

1 Now Hi­ram king of Tyre sent mes­sen­gers to David, and tim­ber of cedars, with ma­sons and car­pen­ters, to build him an house. 2 And David per­ceived that the LORD had con­firmed him king over Is­rael, for his king­dom was lift­ed up on high, be­cause of his peo­ple Is­rael. 3 And David took more wives at Jerusalem: and David be­gat more sons and daugh­ters. 4 Now these are the names of his chil­dren which he had in Jerusalem; Sham­mua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon, 5 And Ib­har, and El­ishua, and El­palet, 6 And No­gah, and Nepheg, and Japhia, 7 And El­ishama, and Beel­i­a­da, and Eliphalet. 8 And 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. 9 And the Philistines came and spread them­selves in the val­ley of Rephaim. 10 And David en­quired of God, say­ing, Shall I go up against the Philistines? and wilt thou de­liv­er them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto him, Go up; for I will de­liv­er them into thine hand. 11 So they came up to Baalper­az­im; and David smote them there. Then David said, God hath bro­ken in upon mine en­e­mies by mine hand like the break­ing forth of wa­ters: there­fore they called the name of that place Baalper­az­im. 12 And when they had left their gods there, David gave a com­mand­ment, and they were burned with fire. 13 And the Philistines yet again spread them­selves abroad in the val­ley. 14 There­fore David en­quired again of God; and God said unto him, Go not up af­ter them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mul­ber­ry trees. 15 And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of go­ing in the tops of the mul­ber­ry trees, that then thou shalt go out to bat­tle: for God is gone forth be­fore thee to smite the host of the Philistines. 16 David there­fore did as God com­mand­ed him: and they smote the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gaz­er. 17 And the fame of David went out into all lands; and the LORD brought the fear of him upon all na­tions.
