1 Misit quoque Hiram rex Tyri nuntios ad David et ligna cedrina et artifices parietum lignorumque, ut aedificarent ei domum.
2 Cognovitque David quod confirmasset eum Dominus in regem super Israel et sublevatum esset regnum suum propter populum eius Israel.
3 Accepit quoque David alias uxores in Ierusalem genuitque filios et filias;
4 et haec nomina eorum, qui nati sunt ei in Ierusalem: Samua et Sobab, Nathan et Salomon,
5 Iebahar et Elisua et Eliphalet,
6 Noga quoque et Napheg et Iaphia,
7 Elisama et Beeliada et Eliphalet.
8 Audientes autem Philisthim quod unctus esset David in regem super universum Israel, ascenderunt omnes, ut quaererent eum; quod cum audisset David, egressus est obviam eis.
9 Porro Philisthim venientes diffusi sunt in valle Raphaim.
10 Consuluitque David Deum dicens: "Si ascendam contra Philisthaeos, et si trades eos in manu mea?". Et dixit ei Dominus: "Ascende, et tradam eos in manu tua".
11 Cumque illi ascendissent in Baalpharasim, percussit eos ibi David et dixit: "Dirupit Deus inimicos meos per manum meam sicut dirumpuntur aquae". Et idcirco vocatum est nomen loci illius Baalpharasim (id est Dominus diruptionum).
12 Dereliqueruntque ibi deos suos, quos David iussit exuri.
13 Alia etiam vice Philisthim irruerunt et diffusi sunt in valle;
14 consuluitque rursum David Deum, et dixit ei Deus: "Non ascendas post eos; circumdabis eos et venies contra illos ex adverso arborum celthium;
15 cumque audieris sonitum gradientis in cacumine arborum celthium, tunc egredieris ad bellum; egressus est enim Deus ante te, ut percutias castra Philisthim".
16 Fecit ergo David, sicut praeceperat ei Deus, et percussit castra Philisthinorum de Gabaon usque Gazer.
17 Divulgatumque est nomen David in universis regionibus, et Dominus dedit pavorem eius super omnes gentes.
King James Version
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 Baal-perazim; 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 Baal-perazim.
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.
