1 Chronicles 14
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And Huram king of Tyre sends messengers to David, and cedar-wood, and craftsmen of walls, and craftsmen of wood, to build a house for him. 2And David knows that YHWH has established him for king over Israel, because of the lifting up on high of his kingdom, for the sake of His people Israel.

3And David takes wives again in Jerusalem, and David begets sons and daughters again; 4and these [are] the names of the children whom he has 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.

8And the Philistines hear that David has been anointed for king over all Israel, and all the Philistines go up to seek David, and David hears, and goes out before them. 9And the Philistines have come, and rush into the Valley of Rephaim, 10and David asks of God, saying, “Do I go up against the Philistines—and have You given them into my hand?” And YHWH says to him, “Go up, and I have given them into your hand.” 11And they go up into Ba‘al-Perazim, and David strikes them there, and David says, “God has broken up my enemies by my hand, like the breaking up of waters”; therefore they have called the name of that place Ba‘al-Perazim. 12And they leave their gods there, and David commands, and they are burned with fire.

13And the Philistines add again, and rush into the valley, 14and David asks again of God, and God says to him, “Do not go up after them, turn around from them, and you have come to them from the front [[or in front]] of the mulberries; 15and it comes to pass, when you hear the sound of the stepping at the heads of the mulberries, then you go out into battle, for God has gone out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.” 16And David does as God commanded him, and they strike the camp of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gazer; 17and the name of David goes out into all the lands, and YHWH has put his fear on all the nations.
