1 Chronicles 14
David`s House and Family...
And Hiram sovereign of Tsor sent messengers to Dawid, and cedar trees, with stonemasons and carpenters, to build him a house.
And Dawid knew that YHWH had established him as sovereign over Yisra'el, for his reign was highly exalted for the sake of His people Yisra'el.
And Dawid took more wives in Yerushalayim, and Dawid brought forth more sons and daughters.
And these are the names of his children whom he had in Yerushalayim: Shammua and Shobab, Nathan and Shelomoh,
and Yibhar, and Elishua, and Elpelet,
and Nogah, and Nepheg, and Yaphiya,
and Elishama, and Be'elyada, and Eliphelet.
David Defeats the Philistines...
And when the Philistines heard that Dawid had been anointed sovereign over all Yisra`el, all the Philistines went up to seek Dawid. And Dawid heard and went out against them.
And the Philistines came and made a raid on the Valley of Repha'im.
And Dawid inquired of Elohim, saying, 'Do I go up against the Philistines? And shall You give them into my hand?' And YHWH said to him, 'Go up, and I shall give them into your hand.'
And they went up to Ba'al Peratsim, and Dawid smote them there. Then Dawid said, 'Elohim has broken through my enemies by my hand like a breakthrough of water.' So they called the name of that place Ba'al Peratsim.
And they left their mighty ones there, so Dawid commanded, and they were burned with fire.
And the Philistines once again made a raid on the valley.
And Dawid again inquired of Elohim, and Elohim said to him, 'Do not go up after them. Go around them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees.
'And it shall be, when you hear a sound of stepping in the tops of the mulberry trees, then go out to battle, for Elohim shall go out before you to smite the camp of the Philistines.'
And Dawid did as Elohim commanded him, and they drove back the army of the Philistines from Gib'on as far as Gezer.
And the name of Dawid went out into all lands, and YHWH put the dread of him upon all nations.
