1 Et venerunt universae tribus Is rael ad David in Hebron dicen tes: "Ecce nos os tuum et caro tua sumus.
2 Sed et heri et nudiustertius, cum esset Saul rex super nos, tu eras educens et reducens Israel. Dixit autem Dominus ad te: "Tu pasces populum meum Israel et tu eris dux super Israel" ".
3 Venerunt quoque omnes senes Israel ad regem in Hebron, et percussit cum eis rex David foedus in Hebron coram Domino; unxeruntque David in regem super Israel.
4 Triginta annorum erat David, cum regnare coepisset, et quadraginta annis regnavit:
5 in Hebron regnavit super Iudam septem annis et sex mensibus; in Ierusalem autem regnavit triginta tribus annis super omnem Israel et Iudam.
6 Et abiit rex et omnes viri, qui erant cum eo, in Ierusalem ad Iebusaeum habitatorem terrae. Qui dixit ad David: "Non ingredieris huc, sed depellent te caeci et claudi", significantes: "Non ingredietur David huc".
7 Cepit autem David arcem Sion: haec est civitas David.
8 Dixerat enim David in die illa: "Omnis, qui percutiet Iebusaeum, attingat per cuniculum fontis claudos et caecos exosos animae David". Idcirco dicitur in proverbio: "Caecus et claudus non intrabunt in domum".
9 Habitavit autem David in arce et vocavit eam Civitatem David; et aedificavit per gyrum a Mello et intrinsecus.
10 Et ibat proficiens atque succrescens, et Dominus, Deus exercituum, erat cum eo.
11 Misit quoque Hiram rex Tyri nuntios ad David et ligna cedrina et artifices lignorum artificesque lapidum pro parietibus; et aedificaverunt domum David.
12 Et cognovit David quoniam confirmasset eum Dominus regem super Israel et quoniam exaltasset regnum eius super populum suum Israel.
13 Accepitque David adhuc concubinas et uxores de Ierusalem, postquam venerat de Hebron; natique sunt David et alii filii et filiae.
14 Et haec nomina eorum, qui nati sunt ei in Ierusalem: Samua et Sobab et Nathan et Salomon
15 et Iebahar et Elisua et Napheg
16 et Iaphia et Elisama et Eliada et Eliphalet.
17 Audierunt vero Philisthim quod unxissent David regem super Israel et ascenderunt universi, ut quaererent David. Quod cum audisset David, descendit in praesidium;
18 Philisthim autem venientes diffusi sunt in valle Raphaim.
19 Et consuluit David Dominum dicens: "Si ascendam ad Philisthim? Et si dabis eos in manu mea?". Et dixit Dominus ad David: "Ascende, quia tradens dabo Philisthim in manu tua".
20 Venit ergo David in Baalpharasim (id est Dominus diruptionum); et percussit eos ibi et dixit: "Divisit Dominus inimicos meos coram me, sicut dividuntur aquae". Propterea vocatum est nomen loci illius Baalpharasim.
21 Et reliquerunt ibi sculptilia sua, quae tulit David et viri eius.
22 Et addiderunt adhuc Philisthim ut ascenderent et diffusi sunt in valle Raphaim.
23 Consuluit autem David Dominum, qui respondit: "Non ascendas, sed gyra post tergum eorum et venies ad eos ex adverso arborum celthium
24 et, cum audieris sonitum gradientis in cacumine arborum celthium, tunc inibis proelium, quia tunc egredietur Dominus ante faciem tuam, ut percutiat castra Philisthim".
25 Fecit itaque David, sicut praeceperat ei Dominus; et percussit Philisthim de Gabaon usque dum venias Gazer.
King James Version
1 Then came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, and spake, saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh.
2 Also in time past, when Saul was king over us, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the LORD said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain over Israel.
3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a league with them in Hebron before the LORD: and they anointed David king over Israel.
4 ¶ David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years.
5 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.
6 ¶ And the king and his men went to Jerusalem unto the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto David, saying, Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking, David cannot come in hither.
7 Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.
8 And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David's soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.
9 So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward.
10 And David went on, and grew great, and the LORD God of hosts was with him.
11 ¶ And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David an house.
12 And David perceived that the LORD had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel's sake.
13 ¶ 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.
14 And these be the names of those that were born unto him in Jerusalem; Shammua, and Shobab, and Nathan, and Solomon,
15 Ibhar also, and Elishua, and Nepheg, and Japhia,
16 And Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphalet.
17 ¶ But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold.
18 The Philistines also came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
19 And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
20 And David came to Baal-perazim, and David smote them there, and said, The LORD hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place Baal-perazim.
21 And there they left their images, and David and his men burned them.
22 ¶ And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
23 And when David enquired of the LORD, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.
24 And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the LORD go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.
25 And David did so, as the LORD had commanded him; and smote the Philistines from Geba until thou come to Gazer.
