1 Chronicles 14:1-17, NLT
1 Chronicles 14
David’s Palace and Family
1Then King Hiram of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar timber, and stonemasons and carpenters to build him a palace.
3Then David married more wives in Jerusalem, and they had more sons and daughters.
David Conquers the Philistines
8When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, they mobilized all their forces to capture him. But David was told they were coming, so he marched out to meet them.
The Lord replied, “Yes, go ahead. I will hand them over to you.”
11So David and his troops went up to Baal-perazim and defeated the Philistines there. “God did it!” David exclaimed. “He used me to burst through my enemies like a raging flood!” So they named that place Baal-perazim (which means “the Lord who bursts through”).
13But after a while the Philistines returned and raided the valley again.
17So David’s fame spread everywhere, and the Lord caused all the nations to fear David.
