1 Chronicles 14
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1Now Hiram, king of Tyre, sent messengers to David, and timber of cedars, with masons and carpenters, to build him a house. 2And David, understanding that the LORD had confirmed him king over Israel and had lifted up his kingdom above his people Israel,

3took more wives at Jerusalem; and David begat more sons and daughters. 4Now these are the names of his children which were born unto him in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, 5Ibhar, Elishua, Elpalet, 6Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia, 7Elishama, Beeliada, and Eliphalet.

8And 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. 9And the Philistines came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim. 10And David enquired of God, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? Wilt thou deliver them into my hand? And the LORD said unto him, Go up, for I will deliver them into thy hands. 11So they came up to Baalperazim, and David smote them there. Then David said, God has broken in upon my enemies by my hand like the breaking forth of waters. Therefore, they called the name of that place Baalperazim. 12And they left their gods there, and David gave a commandment, and they were burned with fire.

13And the Philistines yet again spread themselves abroad in the valley. 14Therefore, David enquired again of God; and God said unto him, Do not go up after them; go around them to come upon them over against the mulberry trees; 15and it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt go out to battle; for God shall go forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines. 16David, therefore, did as God commanded him, and they smote the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gazer. 17And the fame of David went out into all those lands, and the LORD put the fear of him upon all the Gentiles.
