10:3: The battle went sore against Saul, and the archers overtook him; and he was distressed by reason of the archers.
10:4: Then said Saul to his armor-bearer, Draw your sword, and thrust me through therewith, lest these uncircumcised come and abuse me. But his armor-bearer would not; for he was sore afraid. Therefore Saul took his sword, and fell on it.

10:12: all the valiant men arose, 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.
10:13: So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against Yahweh, because of the word of Yahweh, which he didn't keep; and also because he asked counsel of one who had a familiar spirit, to inquire [thereby],
10:14: and didn't inquire of Yahweh: therefore he killed him, and turned the kingdom to David the son of Jesse.

11:1: Then all Israel gathered themselves to David to Hebron, saying, Behold, we are your bone and your flesh.
11:2: In times past, even when Saul was king, it was you who led out and brought in Israel: and Yahweh your God said to you, You shall be shepherd of my people Israel, and you shall be prince over my people Israel.
11:3: So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before Yahweh; and they anointed David king over Israel, according to the word of Yahweh by Samuel.
11:4: David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (the same is Jebus); and the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there.
11:5: The inhabitants of Jebus said to David, You shall not come in here. Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion; the same is the city of David.
11:6: David said, Whoever strikes the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain. Joab the son of Zeruiah went up first, and was made chief.
11:7: David lived in the stronghold; therefore they called it the city of David.
11:8: He built the city round about, from Millo even round about; and Joab repaired the rest of the city.
11:9: David grew greater and greater; for Yahweh of Hosts was with him.
11:10: Now these are the chief of the mighty men whom David had, who shown themselves strong with him in his kingdom, together with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of Yahweh concerning Israel.
11:11: This is the number of the mighty men whom David had: Jashobeam, the son of a Hachmonite, the chief of the thirty; he lifted up his spear against three hundred and killed them at one time.
11:12: After him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was one of the three mighty men.
11:13: He was with David at Pasdammim, and there the Philistines were gathered together to battle, where was a plot of ground full of barley; and the people fled from before the Philistines.
11:14: They stood in the midst of the plot, and defended it, and killed the Philistines; and Yahweh saved them by a great victory.
11:15: Three of the thirty chief men went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam; and the host of the Philistines were encamped in the valley of Rephaim.
11:16: David was then in the stronghold, and the garrison of the Philistines was then in Bethlehem.
11:17: David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me water to drink of the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate!
11:18: The three broke 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 Yahweh,
11:19: and said, My God forbid it me, that I should do this: shall I drink the blood of these men who 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 the three mighty men.
11:20: Abishai, the brother of Joab, he was chief of the three; for he lifted up his spear against three hundred and killed them, and had a name among the three.
11:21: Of the three, he was more honorable than the two, and was made their captain: however he didn't attain to the [first] three.
11:22: Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, who had done mighty deeds, he killed the two [sons of] Ariel of Moab: he went down also and killed a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow.
11:23: He killed 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 killed him with his own spear.
11:24: These things did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and had a name among the three mighty men.
11:25: Behold, he was more honorable than the thirty, but he didn't attain to the [first] three: and David set him over his guard.
11:26: Also the mighty men of the armies: Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan the son of Dodo of Bethlehem,
11:27: Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite,
11:28: Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite, Abiezer the Anathothite,

12:2: They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand and the left in slinging stones and in shooting arrows from the bow: they were of Saul's brothers of Benjamin.

12:15: These are those who went over the Jordan in the first month, when it had overflowed all its banks; and they put to flight all them of the valleys, both toward the east, and toward the west.
12:16: There came of the children of Benjamin and Judah to the stronghold to David.
12:17: David went out to meet them, and answered them, If you be come peaceably to me to help me, my heart shall be knit to you; but if [you be come] to betray me to my adversaries, seeing there is no wrong in my hands, the God of our fathers look thereon, and rebuke it.
12:18: Then the Spirit came on Amasai, who was chief of the thirty, [and he said], "We are yours, David, and on your side, you son of Jesse: peace, peace be to you, and peace be to your helpers; for your God helps you." Then David received them, and made them captains of the band.
12:19: Of Manasseh also there fell away some to David, when he came with the Philistines against Saul to battle: but they didn't help them; for the lords of the Philistines sent him away after consultation, saying, He will fall away to his master Saul to the jeopardy of our heads.
12:20: As he went to Ziklag, there fell to him of Manasseh, Adnah, and Jozabad, and Jediael, and Michael, and Jozabad, and Elihu, and Zillethai, captains of thousands who were of Manasseh.
12:21: They helped David against the band of rovers: for they were all mighty men of valor, and were captains in the host.
12:22: For from day to day men came to David to help him, until there was a great host, like the host of God.
12:23: These are the numbers of the heads of those who were armed for war, who came to David to Hebron, to turn the kingdom of Saul to him, according to the word of Yahweh.

12:28: and Zadok, a young man mighty of valor, and of his father's house twenty-two captains.
12:29: Of the children of Benjamin, the brothers of Saul, three thousand: for hitherto the greatest part of them had kept their allegiance to the house of Saul.
12:30: Of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand eight hundred, mighty men of valor, famous men in their fathers' houses.
12:31: Of the half-tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, who were mentioned by name, to come and make David king.
12:32: Of the children of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brothers were at their commandment.
12:33: Of Zebulun, such as were able to go out in the host, who could set the battle in array, with all manner of instruments of war, fifty thousand, and who could order [the battle array, and were] not of double heart.

12:35: Of the Danites who could set the battle in array, twenty-eight thousand six hundred.
12:36: Of Asher, such as were able to go out in the host, who could set the battle in array, forty thousand.
12:37: On the other side of the Jordan, of the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and of the half-tribe of Manasseh, with all manner of instruments of war for the battle, one hundred twenty thousand.
12:38: All these being men of war, who could order the battle array, 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.
12:39: They were there with David three days, eating and drinking; for their brothers had made preparation for them.
12:40: Moreover those who were near to them, [even] as far as Issachar and Zebulun and Naphtali, brought bread on donkeys, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, food of meal, cakes of figs, and clusters of raisins, and wine, and oil, and oxen, and sheep in abundance: for there was joy in Israel.

13:1: David consulted with the captains of thousands and of hundreds, even with every leader.
13:2: David said to all the assembly of Israel, If it seem good to you, and if it be of Yahweh our God, let us send abroad everywhere to our brothers who are left in all the land of Israel, with whom the priests and Levites are in their cities that have suburbs, that they may gather themselves to us;
13:3: and let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we didn't seek it in the days of Saul.
13:4: All the assembly said that they would do so; for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people.
13:5: So David assembled all Israel together, from the Shihor [the brook] of Egypt even to the entrance of Hamath, to bring the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim.
13:6: David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, [that is], to Kiriath Jearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up from there the ark of God Yahweh that sits [above] the cherubim, that is called by the Name.
13:7: They carried the ark of God on a new cart, [and brought it] out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drove the cart.
13:8: David and all Israel played before God with all their might, even with songs, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with tambourines, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.
13:9: When they came to the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.
13:10: The anger of Yahweh was kindled against Uzza, and he struck him, because he put forth his hand to the ark; and there he died before God.
13:11: David was displeased, because Yahweh had broken forth on Uzza; and he called that place Perez Uzza, to this day.
13:12: David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me?
13:13: So David didn't move the ark to him into the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.
13:14: The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-edom in his house three months: and Yahweh blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that he had.

14:1: Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and masons, and carpenters, to build him a house.
14:2: David perceived that Yahweh had established him king over Israel; for his kingdom was exalted on high, for his people Israel's sake.
14:3: David took more wives at Jerusalem; and David became the father of more sons and daughters.
14:4: These are the names of the children whom he had in Jerusalem: Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon,
14:5: and Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpelet,
14:6: and Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia,
14:7: and Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphelet.
14:8: 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.
14:9: Now the Philistines had come and made a raid in the valley of Rephaim.
14:10: David inquired of God, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? and will you deliver them into my hand? Yahweh said to him, Go up; for I will deliver them into your hand.
14:11: So they came up to Baal Perazim, and David struck them there; and David said, God has broken my enemies by my hand, like the breach of waters. Therefore they called the name of that place Baal Perazim.
14:12: They left their gods there; and David gave commandment, and they were burned with fire.
14:13: The Philistines yet again made a raid in the valley.
14:14: David inquired again of God; and God said to him, You shall not go up after them: turn away from them, and come on them over against the mulberry trees.
14:15: It shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then you shall go out to battle; for God is gone out before you to strike the host of the Philistines.
14:16: David did as God commanded him: and they struck the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gezer.
14:17: The fame of David went out into all lands; and Yahweh brought the fear of him on all nations.

15:1: [David] made him houses in the city of David; and he prepared a place for the ark of God, and pitched for it a tent.
15:2: Then David said, None ought to carry the ark of God but the Levites: for them has Yahweh chosen to carry the ark of God, and to minister to him forever.
15:3: David assembled all Israel at Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of Yahweh to its place, which he had prepared for it.
15:4: David gathered together the sons of Aaron, and the Levites:
15:5: of the sons of Kohath, Uriel the chief, and his brothers one hundred twenty;
15:6: of the sons of Merari, Asaiah the chief, and his brothers two hundred twenty;
15:7: of the sons of Gershom, Joel the chief, and his brothers one hundred thirty;
15:8: of the sons of Elizaphan, Shemaiah the chief, and his brothers two hundred;
15:9: of the sons of Hebron, Eliel the chief, and his brothers eighty;
15:10: of the sons of Uzziel, Amminadab the chief, and his brothers one hundred twelve.
15:11: David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and for the Levites, for Uriel, Asaiah, and Joel, Shemaiah, and Eliel, and Amminadab,
15:12: and said to them, You are the heads of the fathers' [houses] of the Levites: sanctify yourselves, both you and your brothers, that you may bring up the ark of Yahweh, the God of Israel, to [the place] that I have prepared for it.
15:13: For because you didn't carry it at the first, Yahweh our God made a breach on us, because we didn't seek him according to the ordinance.
15:14: So the priests and the Levites sanctified themselves to bring up the ark of Yahweh, the God of Israel.
15:15: The children of the Levites bore the ark of God on their shoulders with the poles thereon, as Moses commanded according to the word of Yahweh.
15:16: David spoke to the chief of the Levites to appoint their brothers the singers, with instruments of music, psalteries and harps and cymbals, sounding aloud and lifting up the voice with joy.
15:17: So the Levites appointed Heman the son of Joel; and of his brothers, Asaph the son of Berechiah; and of the sons of Merari their brothers, Ethan the son of Kushaiah;
15:18: and with them their brothers of the second degree, Zechariah, Ben, and Jaaziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Unni, Eliab, and Benaiah, and Maaseiah, and Mattithiah, and Eliphelehu, and Mikneiah, and Obed-edom, and Jeiel, the doorkeepers.
15:19: So the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, [were appointed] with cymbals of brass to sound aloud;
15:20: and Zechariah, and Aziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Unni, and Eliab, and Maaseiah, and Benaiah, with psalteries set to Alamoth;
15:21: and Mattithiah, and Eliphelehu, and Mikneiah, and Obed-edom, and Jeiel, and Azaziah, with harps tuned to the eight-stringed lyre, to lead.
15:22: Chenaniah, chief of the Levites, was over the song: he instructed about the song, because he was skillful.
15:23: Berechiah and Elkanah were doorkeepers for the ark.
15:24: Shebaniah, and Joshaphat, and Nethanel, and Amasai, and Zechariah, and Benaiah, and Eliezer, the priests, did blow the trumpets before the ark of God: and Obed-edom and Jehiah were doorkeepers for the ark.
15:25: So David, and the elders of Israel, and the captains over thousands, went to bring up the ark of the covenant of Yahweh out of the house of Obed-edom with joy.
15:26: It happened, when God helped the Levites who bore the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, that they sacrificed seven bulls and seven rams.
15:27: David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, and all the Levites who bore the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah the master of the song [with] the singers: and David had on him an ephod of linen.
15:28: Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of Yahweh with shouting, and with sound of the cornet, and with trumpets, and with cymbals, sounding aloud with psalteries and harps.
15:29: It happened, as the ark of the covenant of Yahweh came to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David dancing and playing; and she despised him in her heart.
