5:1 Then came [H935] all the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] to David [H1732] unto Hebron [H2275] , and spake [H559] , saying [H559] , Behold, we [are] thy bone [H6106] and thy flesh [H1320] .

5:2 Also in time past [H865] [H8032] , when Saul [H7586] was king [H4428] over us, thou wast he that leddest out [H3318] and broughtest in [H935] Israel [H3478] : and the LORD [H3068] said [H559] to thee, Thou shalt feed [H7462] my people [H5971] Israel [H3478] , and thou shalt be a captain [H5057] over Israel [H3478] .

5:3 So all the elders [H2205] of Israel [H3478] came [H935] to the king [H4428] to Hebron [H2275] ; and king [H4428] David [H1732] made [H3772] a league [H1285] with them in Hebron [H2275] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] : and they anointed [H4886] David [H1732] king [H4428] over Israel [H3478] .

5:4 David [H1732] [was] thirty [H7970] years [H8141] old [H1121] when he began to reign [H4427] , [and] he reigned [H4427] forty [H705] years [H8141] .

5:5 In Hebron [H2275] he reigned [H4427] over Judah [H3063] seven [H7651] years [H8141] and six [H8337] months [H2320] : and in Jerusalem [H3389] he reigned [H4427] thirty [H7970] and three [H7969] years [H8141] over all Israel [H3478] and Judah [H3063] .

5:6 And the king [H4428] and his men [H582] went [H3212] to Jerusalem [H3389] unto the Jebusites [H2983] , the inhabitants [H3427] of the land [H776] : which spake [H559] unto David [H1732] , saying [H559] , Except thou take away [H5493] the blind [H5787] and the lame [H6455] , thou shalt not come in [H935] hither: thinking [H559] , David [H1732] cannot come in [H935] hither.(thinking: or, saying David shall not, etc)

5:7 Nevertheless David [H1732] took [H3920] the strong hold [H4686] of Zion [H6726] : the same [is] the city [H5892] of David [H1732] .

5:8 And David [H1732] said [H559] on that day [H3117] , Whosoever getteth up [H5060] to the gutter [H6794] , and smiteth [H5221] the Jebusites [H2983] , and the lame [H6455] and the blind [H5787] , [that are] hated [H8130] of David's [H1732] soul [H5315] , [he shall be chief and captain]. Wherefore they said [H559] , The blind [H5787] and the lame [H6455] shall not come [H935] into the house [H1004] .(Wherefore: or, Because they had said, even the blind and the lame, He shall not come into the house)

5:9 So David [H1732] dwelt [H3427] in the fort [H4686] , and called [H7121] it the city [H5892] of David [H1732] . And David [H1732] built [H1129] round about [H5439] from Millo [H4407] and inward [H1004] .

5:10 And David [H1732] went [H3212] on [H1980] , and grew great [H1419] , and the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of hosts [H6635] [was] with him.(went: Heb. went, going and growing)

5:11 And Hiram [H2438] king [H4428] of Tyre [H6865] sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] to David [H1732] , and cedar [H730] trees [H6086] , and carpenters [H2796] , and masons [H7023] [H68] : and they built [H1129] David [H1732] an house [H1004] .(masons: Heb. hewers of the stone of the wall)

5:12 And David [H1732] perceived [H3045] that the LORD [H3068] had established [H3559] him king [H4428] over Israel [H3478] , and that he had exalted [H5375] his kingdom [H4467] for his people [H5971] Israel's [H3478] sake.

5:13 And David [H1732] took [H3947] [him] more concubines [H6370] and wives [H802] out of Jerusalem [H3389] , after [H310] he was come [H935] from Hebron [H2275] : and there were yet sons [H1121] and daughters [H1323] born [H3205] to David [H1732] .

5:14 And these [be] the names [H8034] of those that were born [H3209] unto him in Jerusalem [H3389] ; Shammua [H8051] , and Shobab [H7727] , and Nathan [H5416] , and Solomon [H8010] ,

5:15 Ibhar [H2984] also, and Elishua [H474] , and Nepheg [H5298] , and Japhia [H3309] ,

5:16 And Elishama [H476] , and Eliada [H450] , and Eliphalet [H467] .

5:17 But when the Philistines [H6430] heard [H8085] that they had anointed [H4886] David [H1732] king [H4428] over Israel [H3478] , all the Philistines [H6430] came up [H5927] to seek [H1245] David [H1732] ; and David [H1732] heard [H8085] [of it], and went down [H3381] to the hold [H4686] .

5:18 The Philistines [H6430] also came [H935] and spread [H5203] themselves in the valley [H6010] of Rephaim [H7497] .

5:19 And David [H1732] enquired [H7592] of the LORD [H3068] , saying [H559] , Shall I go up [H5927] to the Philistines [H6430] ? wilt thou deliver [H5414] them into mine hand [H3027] ? And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto David [H1732] , Go up [H5927] : for I will doubtless [H5414] deliver [H5414] the Philistines [H6430] into thine hand [H3027] .

5:20 And David [H1732] came [H935] to Baalperazim [H1188] , and David [H1732] smote [H5221] them there, and said [H559] , The LORD [H3068] hath broken forth [H6555] upon mine enemies [H341] before [H6440] me, as the breach [H6556] of waters [H4325] . Therefore he called [H7121] the name [H8034] of that place [H4725] Baalperazim [H1188] .(Baalperazim: that is, the plain of breaches)

5:21 And there they left [H5800] their images [H6091] , and David [H1732] and his men [H582] burned [H5375] them.(burned: or, took them away)

5:22 And the Philistines [H6430] came up [H5927] yet again [H3254] , and spread [H5203] themselves in the valley [H6010] of Rephaim [H7497] .

5:23 And when David [H1732] enquired [H7592] of the LORD [H3068] , he said [H559] , Thou shalt not go up [H5927] ; [but] fetch a compass [H5437] behind [H310] them, and come [H935] upon them over against [H4136] the mulberry trees [H1057] .

5:24 And let it be, when thou hearest [H8085] the sound [H6963] of a going [H6807] in the tops [H7218] of the mulberry trees [H1057] , that then thou shalt bestir [H2782] thyself: for then shall the LORD [H3068] go out [H3318] before [H6440] thee, to smite [H5221] the host [H4264] of the Philistines [H6430] .

5:25 And David [H1732] did so [H6213] , as the LORD [H3068] had commanded [H6680] him; and smote [H5221] the Philistines [H6430] from Geba [H1387] until thou come [H935] to Gazer [H1507] .
