13:004:041 And these written by name came in the days of Hezekiah king of
Judah, and smote their tents, and the habitations that were

who dwelt in Aroer, even unto Nebo and Baalmeon:

13:005:009 And eastward he inhabited unto the entering in of the
wilderness from the river Euphrates: because their cattle were
multiplied in the land of Gilead.

13:005:010 And in the days of Saul they made war with the Hagarites, who
fell by their hand: and they dwelt in their tents throughout
all the east land of Gilead.

13:005:019 And they made war with the Hagarites, with Jetur, and Nephish,
and Nodab.

13:005:020 And they were helped against them, and the Hagarites were
delivered into their hand, and all that were with them: for
they cried to God in the battle, and he was intreated of them;
because they put their trust in him.

13:005:021 And they took away their cattle; of their camels fifty
thousand, and of sheep two hundred and fifty thousand, and of
asses two thousand, and of men an hundred thousand.

13:005:022 For there fell down many slain, because the war was of God.
And they dwelt in their steads until the captivity.

13:005:023 And the children of the half tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the
land: they increased from Bashan unto Baalhermon and Senir,
and unto mount Hermon.

13:005:024 And these were the heads of the house of their fathers, even
Epher, and Ishi, and Eliel, and Azriel, and Jeremiah, and
Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty men of valour, famous men, and
heads of the house of their fathers.

13:005:025 And they transgressed against the God of their fathers, and
went a whoring after the gods of the people of the land, whom
God destroyed before them.

13:005:026 And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of
Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria,
and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the
Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto

time past, and the LORD was with him.

13:009:021 And Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah was porter of the door of

north, and south.

13:009:025 And their brethren, which were in their villages, were to come

13:009:026 For these Levites, the four chief porters, were in their set
office, and were over the chambers and treasuries of the house
of God.

13:009:027 And they lodged round about the house of God, because the
charge was upon them, and the opening thereof every morning
pertained to them.

13:009:028 And certain of them had the charge of the ministering vessels,
that they should bring them in and out by tale.

were over the shewbread, to prepare it every sabbath.

13:009:033 And these are the singers, chief of the fathers of the
Levites, who remaining in the chambers were free: for they
were employed in that work day and night.

generations; these dwelt at Jerusalem.

13:009:035 And in Gibeon dwelt the father of Gibeon, Jehiel, whose wife's

and Ahaz.

and Zimri; and Zimri begat Moza;

13:009:043 And Moza begat Binea; and Rephaiah his son, Eleasah his son,
Azel his son.

13:009:044 And Azel had six sons, whose names are these, Azrikam,
Bocheru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan:
these were the sons of Azel.

13:010:001 Now the Philistines fought against Israel; and the men of
Israel fled from before the Philistines, and fell down slain
in mount Gilboa.

13:010:002 And the Philistines followed hard after Saul, and after his
sons; and the Philistines slew Jonathan, and Abinadab, and
Malchishua, the sons of Saul.

13:010:003 And the battle went sore against Saul, and the archers hit
him, and he was wounded of the archers.

13:010:004 Then said Saul to his armourbearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust
me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come and abuse
me. But his armourbearer would not; for he was sore afraid. So
Saul took a sword, and fell upon it.

13:010:005 And when his armourbearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell
likewise on the sword, and died.

13:010:006 So Saul died, and his three sons, and all his house died

13:010:007 And when all the men of Israel that were in the valley saw
that they fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead, then
they forsook their cities, and fled: and the Philistines came
and dwelt in them.

13:010:008 And it came to pass on the morrow, when the Philistines came
to strip the slain, that they found Saul and his sons fallen
in mount Gilboa.

13:010:009 And when they had stripped him, they took his head, and his
armour, and sent into the land of the Philistines round about,
to carry tidings unto their idols, and to the people.

13:010:010 And they put his armour in the house of their gods, and
fastened his head in the temple of Dagon.

13:010:011 And when all Jabeshgilead heard all that the Philistines had
done to Saul,

13:010:012 They arose, all the valiant men, and took away the body of
Saul, and the bodies of his sons, and brought them to Jabesh,
and buried their bones under the oak in Jabesh, and fasted
seven days.

13:010:013 So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against
the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept
not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar
spirit, to enquire of it;

13:010:014 And enquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and
turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.

13:011:001 Then all Israel gathered themselves to David unto Hebron,
saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh.

13:011:002 And moreover in time past, even when Saul was king, thou wast
he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the LORD thy
God said unto thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou
shalt be ruler over my people Israel.

13:011:003 Therefore came all the elders of Israel to the king to Hebron;
and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the LORD;
and they anointed David king over Israel, according to the
word of the LORD by Samuel.

13:011:004 And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus;
where the Jebusites were, the inhabitants of the land.

13:011:005 And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David, Thou shalt not
come hither. Nevertheless David took the castle of Zion, which
is the city of David.

13:011:006 And David said, Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites first shall be
chief and captain. So Joab the son of Zeruiah went first up,
and was chief.

13:011:007 And David dwelt in the castle; therefore they called it the
city of David.

13:011:008 And he built the city round about, even from Millo round
about: and Joab repaired the rest of the city.

13:011:009 So David waxed greater and greater: for the LORD of hosts was
with him.

13:011:010 These also are the chief of the mighty men whom David had, who
strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, and with all
Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the LORD
concerning Israel.

13:011:011 And this is the number of the mighty men whom David had;
Jashobeam, an Hachmonite, the chief of the captains: he lifted
up his spear against three hundred slain by him at one time.

13:011:012 And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who
was one of the three mighties.

13:011:013 He was with David at Pasdammim, and there the Philistines were
gathered together to battle, where was a parcel of ground full
of barley; and the people fled from before the Philistines.

13:011:014 And they set themselves in the midst of that parcel, and
delivered it, and slew the Philistines; and the LORD saved
them by a great deliverance.

13:011:015 Now three of the thirty captains went down to the rock to
David, into the cave of Adullam; and the host of the
Philistines encamped in the valley of Rephaim.

13:011:016 And David was then in the hold, and the Philistines' garrison
was then at Bethlehem.

13:011:017 And David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me drink of
the water of the well of Bethlehem, that is at the gate!

13:011:018 And the three brake through the host of the Philistines, and
drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, that was by the gate,
and took it, and brought it to David: but David would not
drink of it, but poured it out to the LORD.

13:011:019 And said, My God forbid it me, that I should do this thing:
shall I drink the blood of these men that have put their lives
in jeopardy? for with the jeopardy of their lives they brought
it. Therefore he would not drink it. These things did these
three mightiest.

13:011:020 And Abishai the brother of Joab, he was chief of the three:
for lifting up his spear against three hundred, he slew them,
and had a name among the three.

13:011:021 Of the three, he was more honourable than the two; for he was
their captain: howbeit he attained not to the first three.

13:011:022 Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of
Kabzeel, who had done many acts; he slew two lionlike men of
Moab: also he went down and slew a lion in a pit in a snowy

13:011:023 And he slew an Egyptian, a man of great stature, five cubits
high; and in the Egyptian's hand was a spear like a weaver's
beam; and he went down to him with a staff, and plucked the
spear out of the Egyptian's hand, and slew him with his own

13:011:024 These things did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and had the name
among the three mighties.

13:011:025 Behold, he was honourable among the thirty, but attained not
to the first three: and David set him over his guard.

13:011:026 Also the valiant men of the armies were, Asahel the brother of
Joab, Elhanan the son of Dodo of Bethlehem,

13:011:027 Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite,

13:011:028 Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite, Abiezer the Antothite,

13:011:029 Sibbecai the Hushathite, Ilai the Ahohite,

13:011:030 Maharai the Netophathite, Heled the son of Baanah the

13:011:031 Ithai the son of Ribai of Gibeah, that pertained to the
children of Benjamin, Benaiah the Pirathonite,

13:011:032 Hurai of the brooks of Gaash, Abiel the Arbathite,

13:011:033 Azmaveth the Baharumite, Eliahba the Shaalbonite,

13:011:034 The sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan the son of Shage the

13:011:035 Ahiam the son of Sacar the Hararite, Eliphal the son of Ur,

13:011:036 Hepher the Mecherathite, Ahijah the Pelonite,

13:011:037 Hezro the Carmelite, Naarai the son of Ezbai,

13:011:038 Joel the brother of Nathan, Mibhar the son of Haggeri,

13:011:039 Zelek the Ammonite, Naharai the Berothite, the armourbearer of
Joab the son of Zeruiah,

13:011:040 Ira the Ithrite, Gareb the Ithrite,

13:011:041 Uriah the Hittite, Zabad the son of Ahlai,

13:011:042 Adina the son of Shiza the Reubenite, a captain of the
Reubenites, and thirty with him,

13:011:043 Hanan the son of Maachah, and Joshaphat the Mithnite,

13:011:044 Uzzia the Ashterathite, Shama and Jehiel the sons of Hothan
the Aroerite,

13:011:045 Jediael the son of Shimri, and Joha his brother, the Tizite,

13:011:046 Eliel the Mahavite, and Jeribai, and Joshaviah, the sons of
Elnaam, and Ithmah the Moabite,

13:011:047 Eliel, and Obed, and Jasiel the Mesobaite.

13:012:001 Now these are they that came to David to Ziklag, while he yet
kept himself close because of Saul the son of Kish: and they
were among the mighty men, helpers of the war.

13:012:002 They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand
and the left in hurling stones and shooting arrows out of a
bow, even of Saul's brethren of Benjamin.

13:012:003 The chief was Ahiezer, then Joash, the sons of Shemaah the
Gibeathite; and Jeziel, and Pelet, the sons of Azmaveth; and
Berachah, and Jehu the Antothite.

13:012:004 And Ismaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the thirty, and
over the thirty; and Jeremiah, and Jahaziel, and Johanan, and
Josabad the Gederathite,

13:012:005 Eluzai, and Jerimoth, and Bealiah, and Shemariah, and
Shephatiah the Haruphite,

13:012:006 Elkanah, and Jesiah, and Azareel, and Joezer, and Jashobeam,
the Korhites,

13:012:007 And Joelah, and Zebadiah, the sons of Jeroham of Gedor.

13:012:008 And of the Gadites there separated themselves unto David into
the hold to the wilderness men of might, and men of war fit
for the battle, that could handle shield and buckler, whose
faces were like the faces of lions, and were as swift as the
roes upon the mountains;

13:012:009 Ezer the first, Obadiah the second, Eliab the third,

13:012:010 Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth,

13:012:011 Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh,

13:012:012 Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth,

13:012:013 Jeremiah the tenth, Machbanai the eleventh.

13:012:014 These were of the sons of Gad, captains of the host: one of
the least was over an hundred, and the greatest over a

13:012:015 These are they that went over Jordan in the first month, when
it had overflown all his banks; and they put to flight all
them of the valleys, both toward the east, and toward the

13:012:016 And there came of the children of Benjamin and Judah to the
hold unto David.

13:012:017 And David went out to meet them, and answered and said unto
them, If ye be come peaceably unto me to help me, mine heart
shall be knit unto you: but if ye be come to betray me to mine
enemies, seeing there is no wrong in mine hands, the God of
our fathers look thereon, and rebuke it.

13:012:018 Then the spirit came upon Amasai, who was chief of the
captains, and he said, Thine are we, David, and on thy side,
thou son of Jesse: peace, peace be unto thee, and peace be to
thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. Then David received
them, and made them captains of the band.

13:012:019 And there fell some of Manasseh to David, when he came with
the Philistines against Saul to battle: but they helped them
not: for the lords of the Philistines upon advisement sent him
away, saying, He will fall to his master Saul to the jeopardy
of our heads.

13:012:020 As he went to Ziklag, there fell to him of Manasseh, Adnah,
and Jozabad, and Jediael, and Michael, and Jozabad, and Elihu,
and Zilthai, captains of the thousands that were of Manasseh.

13:012:021 And they helped David against the band of the rovers: for they
were all mighty men of valour, and were captains in the host.

13:012:022 For at that time day by day there came to David to help him,
until it was a great host, like the host of God.

13:012:023 And these are the numbers of the bands that were ready armed
to the war, and came to David to Hebron, to turn the kingdom
of Saul to him, according to the word of the LORD.

13:012:024 The children of Judah that bare shield and spear were six
thousand and eight hundred, ready armed to the war.

13:012:025 Of the children of Simeon, mighty men of valour for the war,
seven thousand and one hundred.

13:012:026 Of the children of Levi four thousand and six hundred.

13:012:027 And Jehoiada was the leader of the Aaronites, and with him
were three thousand and seven hundred;

13:012:028 And Zadok, a young man mighty of valour, and of his father's
house twenty and two captains.

13:012:029 And of the children of Benjamin, the kindred of Saul, three
thousand: for hitherto the greatest part of them had kept the
ward of the house of Saul.

13:012:030 And of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand and eight
hundred, mighty men of valour, famous throughout the house of
their fathers.

13:012:031 And of the half tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, which
were expressed by name, to come and make David king.

13:012:032 And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had
understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do;
the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren
were at their commandment.

13:012:033 Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with
all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank:
they were not of double heart.

13:012:034 And of Naphtali a thousand captains, and with them with shield
and spear thirty and seven thousand.

13:012:035 And of the Danites expert in war twenty and eight thousand and
six hundred.

13:012:036 And of Asher, such as went forth to battle, expert in war,
forty thousand.

13:012:037 And on the other side of Jordan, of the Reubenites, and the
Gadites, and of the half tribe of Manasseh, with all manner of
instruments of war for the battle, an hundred and twenty

13:012:038 All these men of war, that could keep rank, came with a
perfect heart to Hebron, to make David king over all Israel:
and all the rest also of Israel were of one heart to make
David king.

13:012:039 And there they were with David three days, eating and
drinking: for their brethren had prepared for them.

13:012:040 Moreover they that were nigh them, even unto Issachar and
Zebulun and Naphtali, brought bread on asses, and on camels,
and on mules, and on oxen, and meat, meal, cakes of figs, and
bunches of raisins, and wine, and oil, and oxen, and sheep
abundantly: for there was joy in Israel.

13:013:001 And David consulted with the captains of thousands and
hundreds, and with every leader.

13:013:002 And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, If it seem
good unto you, and that it be of the LORD our God, let us send
abroad unto our brethren every where, that are left in all the
land of Israel, and with them also to the priests and Levites
which are in their cities and suburbs, that they may gather
themselves unto us:

13:013:003 And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we
enquired not at it in the days of Saul.

13:013:004 And all the congregation said that they would do so: for the
thing was right in the eyes of all the people.

13:013:005 So David gathered all Israel together, from Shihor of Egypt
even unto the entering of Hemath, to bring the ark of God from

13:013:006 And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to
Kirjathjearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up thence the
ark of God the LORD, that dwelleth between the cherubims,
whose name is called on it.

13:013:007 And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house
of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart.

13:013:008 And David and all Israel played before God with all their
might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries,
and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.

13:013:009 And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put
forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.

13:013:010 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he
smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he
died before God.

13:013:011 And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach
upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perezuzza to this

13:013:012 And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I
bring the ark of God home to me?

13:013:013 So David brought not the ark home to himself to the city of
David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom the

13:013:014 And the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his
house three months. And the LORD blessed the house of
Obededom, and all that he had.

13:014:001 Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and timber of
cedars, with masons and carpenters, to build him an house.

13:014:002 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.

13:014:003 And David took more wives at Jerusalem: and David begat more
sons and daughters.

13:014:004 Now these are the names of his children which he had in
Jerusalem; Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon,

13:014:005 And Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet,

13:014:006 And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia,

13:014:007 And Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphalet.

13:014:008 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.

13:014:009 And the Philistines came and spread themselves in the valley
of Rephaim.

13:014:010 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.

13:014:011 So they came up to Baalperazim; 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 Baalperazim.

13:014:012 And when they had left their gods there, David gave a
commandment, and they were burned with fire.

13:014:013 And the Philistines yet again spread themselves abroad in the

13:014:014 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.

13:014:015 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.

13:014:016 David therefore did as God commanded him: and they smote the
host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gazer.

13:014:017 And the fame of David went out into all lands; and the LORD
brought the fear of him upon all nations.

13:015:001 And David made him houses in the city of David, and prepared a
place for the ark of God, and pitched for it a tent.

13:015:002 Then David said, None ought to carry the ark of God but the
Levites: for them hath the LORD chosen to carry the ark of
God, and to minister unto him for ever.

13:015:003 And David gathered all Israel together to Jerusalem, to bring
up the ark of the LORD unto his place, which he had prepared
for it.

13:015:004 And David assembled the children of Aaron, and the Levites:

13:015:005 Of the sons of Kohath; Uriel the chief, and his brethren an
hundred and twenty:

13:015:006 Of the sons of Merari; Asaiah the chief, and his brethren two
hundred and twenty:

13:015:007 Of the sons of Gershom; Joel the chief and his brethren an
hundred and thirty:

13:015:008 Of the sons of Elizaphan; Shemaiah the chief, and his brethren
two hundred:

13:015:009 Of the sons of Hebron; Eliel the chief, and his brethren

13:015:010 Of the sons of Uzziel; Amminadab the chief, and his brethren
an hundred and twelve.

13:015:011 And David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and for
the Levites, for Uriel, Asaiah, and Joel, Shemaiah, and Eliel,
and Amminadab,

13:015:012 And said unto them, Ye are the chief of the fathers of the
Levites: sanctify yourselves, both ye and your brethren, that
ye may bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel unto the
place that I have prepared for it.

13:015:013 For because ye did it not at the first, the LORD our God made
a breach upon us, for that we sought him not after the due

13:015:014 So the priests and the Levites sanctified themselves to bring
up the ark of the LORD God of Israel.

13:015:015 And the children of the Levites bare the ark of God upon their
shoulders with the staves thereon, as Moses commanded
according to the word of the LORD.

13:015:016 And David spake to the chief of the Levites to appoint their
brethren to be the singers with instruments of musick,
psalteries and harps and cymbals, sounding, by lifting up the
voice with joy.

13:015:017 So the Levites appointed Heman the son of Joel; and of his
brethren, Asaph the son of Berechiah; and of the sons of
Merari their brethren, Ethan the son of Kushaiah;

13:015:018 And with them their brethren of the second degree, Zechariah,
Ben, and Jaaziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Unni,
Eliab, and Benaiah, and Maaseiah, and Mattithiah, and
Elipheleh, and Mikneiah, and Obededom, and Jeiel, the porters.

13:015:019 So the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, were appointed to
sound with cymbals of brass;

13:015:020 And Zechariah, and Aziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and
Unni, and Eliab, and Maaseiah, and Benaiah, with psalteries on

13:015:021 And Mattithiah, and Elipheleh, and Mikneiah, and Obededom, and
Jeiel, and Azaziah, with harps on the Sheminith to excel.

13:015:022 And Chenaniah, chief of the Levites, was for song: he
instructed about the song, because he was skilful.

13:015:023 And Berechiah and Elkanah were doorkeepers for the ark.

13:015:024 And Shebaniah, and Jehoshaphat, and Nethaneel, and Amasai, and
Zechariah, and Benaiah, and Eliezer, the priests, did blow
with the trumpets before the ark of God: and Obededom and
Jehiah were doorkeepers for the ark.

13:015:025 So David, and the elders of Israel, and the captains over
thousands, went to bring up the ark of the covenant of the
LORD out of the house of Obededom with joy.

13:015:026 And it came to pass, when God helped the Levites that bare the
ark of the covenant of the LORD, that they offered seven
bullocks and seven rams.

13:015:027 And David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, and all the
Levites that bare the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah the
master of the song with the singers: David also had upon him
an ephod of linen.

13:015:028 Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD
with shouting, and with sound of the cornet, and with
trumpets, and with cymbals, making a noise with psalteries and

13:015:029 And it came to pass, as the ark of the covenant of the LORD
came to the city of David, that Michal, the daughter of Saul
looking out at a window saw king David dancing and playing:
and she despised him in her heart.

13:016:001 So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the
tent that David had pitched for it: and they offered burnt
sacrifices and peace offerings before God.

13:016:002 And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offerings
and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of
the LORD.

13:016:003 And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to
every one a loaf of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a
flagon of wine.

13:016:004 And he appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the
ark of the LORD, and to record, and to thank and praise the
LORD God of Israel:

13:016:005 Asaph the chief, and next to him Zechariah, Jeiel, and
Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and
Benaiah, and Obededom: and Jeiel with psalteries and with
harps; but Asaph made a sound with cymbals;

13:016:006 Benaiah also and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets
continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

13:016:007 Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the
LORD into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

13:016:008 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his
deeds among the people.

13:016:009 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his
wondrous works.

13:016:010 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that
seek the LORD.

13:016:011 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.

13:016:012 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders,
and the judgments of his mouth;

13:016:013 O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his
chosen ones.

13:016:014 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

13:016:015 Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he
commanded to a thousand generations;

13:016:016 Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his
oath unto Isaac;

13:016:017 And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel
for an everlasting covenant,

13:016:018 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of
your inheritance;

13:016:019 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.

13:016:020 And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom
to another people;

13:016:021 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings
for their sakes,

13:016:022 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

13:016:023 Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day
his salvation.

13:016:024 Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works
among all nations.

13:016:025 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is
to be feared above all gods.

13:016:026 For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made
the heavens.

13:016:027 Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness
are in his place.

13:016:028 Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the
LORD glory and strength.

13:016:029 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an
offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty
of holiness.

13:016:030 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be
stable, that it be not moved.

13:016:031 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let
men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.

13:016:032 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields
rejoice, and all that is therein.

13:016:033 Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of
the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth.

13:016:034 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy
endureth for ever.

13:016:035 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us
together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give
thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.

13:016:036 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And all
the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD.

13:016:037 So he left there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD
Asaph and his brethren, to minister before the ark
continually, as every day's work required:

13:016:038 And Obededom with their brethren, threescore and eight;
Obededom also the son of Jeduthun and Hosah to be porters:

13:016:039 And Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the
tabernacle of the LORD in the high place that was at Gibeon,

13:016:040 To offer burnt offerings unto the LORD upon the altar of the
burnt offering continually morning and evening, and to do
according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which
he commanded Israel;

13:016:041 And with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest that were
chosen, who were expressed by name, to give thanks to the
LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever;

13:016:042 And with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals for
those that should make a sound, and with musical instruments
of God. And the sons of Jeduthun were porters.

13:016:043 And all the people departed every man to his house: and David
returned to bless his house.

13:017:001 Now it came to pass, as David sat in his house, that David
said to Nathan the prophet, Lo, I dwell in an house of cedars,
but the ark of the covenant of the LORD remaineth under

13:017:002 Then Nathan said unto David, Do all that is in thine heart;
for God is with thee.

13:017:003 And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came
to Nathan, saying,

13:017:004 Go and tell David my servant, Thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt
not build me an house to dwell in:

13:017:005 For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought
up Israel unto this day; but have gone from tent to tent, and
from one tabernacle to another.

13:017:006 Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to
any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my
people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars?

13:017:007 Now therefore thus shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus
saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, even
from following the sheep, that thou shouldest be ruler over my
people Israel:

13:017:008 And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast walked, and
have cut off all thine enemies from before thee, and have made
thee a name like the name of the great men that are in the

13:017:009 Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will
plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be
moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste
them any more, as at the beginning,

13:017:010 And since the time that I commanded judges to be over my
people Israel. Moreover I will subdue all thine enemies.
Furthermore I tell thee that the LORD will build thee an

13:017:011 And it shall come to pass, when thy days be expired that thou
must go to be with thy fathers, that I will raise up thy seed
after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish
his kingdom.

13:017:012 He shall build me an house, and I will stablish his throne for

13:017:013 I will be his father, and he shall be my son: and I will not
take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was
before thee:

13:017:014 But I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for
ever: and his throne shall be established for evermore.

13:017:015 According to all these words, and according to all this
vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

13:017:016 And David the king came and sat before the LORD, and said, Who
am I, O LORD God, and what is mine house, that thou hast
brought me hitherto?

13:017:017 And yet this was a small thing in thine eyes, O God; for thou
hast also spoken of thy servant's house for a great while to
come, and hast regarded me according to the estate of a man of
high degree, O LORD God.

13:017:018 What can David speak more to thee for the honour of thy
servant? for thou knowest thy servant.

13:017:019 O LORD, for thy servant's sake, and according to thine own
heart, hast thou done all this greatness, in making known all
these great things.

13:017:020 O LORD, there is none like thee, neither is there any God
beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our

13:017:021 And what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel,
whom God went to redeem to be his own people, to make thee a
name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations
from before thy people whom thou hast redeemed out of Egypt?

13:017:022 For thy people Israel didst thou make thine own people for
ever; and thou, LORD, becamest their God.

13:017:023 Therefore now, LORD, let the thing that thou hast spoken
concerning thy servant and concerning his house be established
for ever, and do as thou hast said.

13:017:024 Let it even be established, that thy name may be magnified for
ever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel, even a
God to Israel: and let the house of David thy servant be
established before thee.

13:017:025 For thou, O my God, hast told thy servant that thou wilt build
him an house: therefore thy servant hath found in his heart to
pray before thee.

13:017:026 And now, LORD, thou art God, and hast promised this goodness
unto thy servant:

13:017:027 Now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy
servant, that it may be before thee for ever: for thou
blessest, O LORD, and it shall be blessed for ever.

13:018:001 Now after this it came to pass, that David smote the
Philistines, and subdued them, and took Gath and her towns out
of the hand of the Philistines.

13:018:002 And he smote Moab; and the Moabites became David's servants,
and brought gifts.

13:018:003 And David smote Hadarezer king of Zobah unto Hamath, as he
went to stablish his dominion by the river Euphrates.

13:018:004 And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven
thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: David also
houghed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them an
hundred chariots.

13:018:005 And when the Syrians of Damascus came to help Hadarezer king
of Zobah, David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand

13:018:006 Then David put garrisons in Syriadamascus; and the Syrians
became David's servants, and brought gifts. Thus the LORD
preserved David whithersoever he went.

13:018:007 And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants
of Hadarezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.

13:018:008 Likewise from Tibhath, and from Chun, cities of Hadarezer,
brought David very much brass, wherewith Solomon made the
brasen sea, and the pillars, and the vessels of brass.

13:018:009 Now when Tou king of Hamath heard how David had smitten all
the host of Hadarezer king of Zobah;

13:018:010 He sent Hadoram his son to king David, to enquire of his
welfare, and to congratulate him, because he had fought
against Hadarezer, and smitten him; (for Hadarezer had war
