So Hiram the king of Tyre sent messengers to Dauid, and timber of Cedar trees, with masons and carpeters, to builde him an house.
And Dauid perceaued that the Lorde had confirmed him king vpon Israel, & that his kingdome was lift vp on hie because of his people Israel:
And Dauid toke yet mo wyues at Hierusalem, and begat mo sonnes and daughters.
These are the names of his children, which were borne vnto him at Hierusalem: Samua, Sobab, Nathan, & Solomon,
Iibhar, Elisua, and Eliphalet,
Noga, Nepheg, and Iaphia,
Elisama, Beeliada, and Eliphalet.
And when the Philistines heard that Dauid was annoynted king vpon all Israel, all the Philistines went vp to seeke Dauid: And Dauid heard of it, & went out against them.
And the Philistines came in, and spread them selues through the valley of Rephaim.
And Dauid asked counsaile at God, saying: Shall I go against the Philistines?
and wilt thou deliuer them into myne hand?
And the Lorde saide vnto him: go vp, for I wil deliuer them into thyne hand.
And so they came vp to Baal Perazim, and Dauid smote them there, and Dauid saide: God hath deuided myne enemies with myne hand, as a man would deuide water, and therefore they called the name of that place Baal Perazim.
And when they had left their gods there, Dauid gaue a commaundement, and they were burnt with fire.
And the Philistines came together againe, and russhed into the valley.
And Dauid asked againe at God: And God said to him, Go not vp after them, but turne away from them that thou mayest come vpon them ouer against the peretrees.
And when thou hearest a sounde go in the toppes of the peretrees, then go out to battaile: for God is gone forth before thee, to smyte the hoast of the Philistines.
Dauid therfore did as God commaunded him, and they smote the hoast of the Philistines, from Gibeon to Gazer.
And the fame of Dauid went out into all landes, and the Lorde made all nations feare him.
