11 Attai the sixt, Eliel the seuenth,
12 Iohanan the eight, Elzabad the ninth,
13 Ieremiah the tenth, Macbannai the eleuenth.
14 These were the sonnes of Gad, captaines of the hoste: one of the least could
resist an hundreth, and the greatest a thousand.
15 These are they that went ouer Iorden in the first moneth when he had filled
ouer all his bankes, and put to flight all them of the valley, toward the East
and the West.
16 And there came of the children of Beniamin, and Iudah to the hold vnto Dauid,
17 And Dauid went out to meete them, and answered and sayde vnto them, If yee be
come peaceably vnto me to helpe me, mine heart shall be knit vnto you, but if
you come to betray me to mine aduersaries, seeing there is no wickednes in mine
handes, the God of our fathers beholde it, and rebuke it.
18 And the spirit came vpon Amasai, which was the chiefe of thirtie, and he
said, Thine are we, Dauid, and with thee, O sonne of Ishai. Peace, peace be vnto
thee, and peace be vnto thine helpers: for thy God helpeth thee. Then Dauid
receiued them, and made them captaines of the garison.
19 And of Manasseh some fell to Dauid, when he came with the Philistims against
Saul to battell, but they helped them not: for the Princes of the Philistims by
aduisement sent him away, saying, He will fall to his master Saul for our heads.
20 As he went to Ziklag, there fell to him of Manasseh, Adnah, and Iozabad, and
Iediael, and Michael, and Iozabad, and Elihu, and Ziltai, heads of the thousands
that were of Manasseh.
21 And they helped Dauid against that bad: for they were all valiant men and
were captaines in the hoste.
22 For at that time day by day there came to Dauid to helpe him, vntill it was a
great hoste, like the hoste of God.
23 And these are the nombers of the captaines that were armed to battell, and
came to Dauid to
to turne the kingdome of Saul to him, according to the worde of the Lord.
24 The children of Iudah that bare shield and speare, were sixe thousand and
eight hundreth armed to the warre.
25 Of the children of Simeon valiant men of warre, seuen thousand and an
26 Of the children of Leui foure thousande and sixe hundreth.
27 And Iehoiada was the chiefe of them of Aaron: and with him three thousande
and seuen hundreth.
28 And Zadok a yong man very valiant, and of his fathers housholde came two and
29 And of the children of Beniamin the brethren of Saul three thousande: for a
great part of them vnto that time kept the warde of the house of Saul.
30 And of the children of Ephraim twentie thousande, and eight hundreth valiant
men and famous men in the housholde of their fathers.
31 And of the halfe tribe of Manasseh eighteene thousand, which were appointed
by name to come and make Dauid King.
32 And of the children of Issachar which were men that had vnderstanding of the
times, to knowe what
ought to doe: the heades of them were two hundreth, & all their brethren
were at their commandement.
33 Of Zebulun that went out to battel, expert in warre, and in all instruments
of warre, fiftie thousande which could set the battell in aray: they were not of
a double heart.
34 And of Naphtali a thousand captaines, and with them with shielde and speare
seuen and thirtie thousande.
35 And of Dan expert in battell, eyght and twentie thousande, and sixe hundreth.
36 And of Asher that went out to the battell and were trained in the warres,
37 And of the other side of Iorden of the Reubenites, and of the Gadites, and of
the halfe tribe of Manasseh with all instruments of warre to fight with, an
hundreth and twentie thousand.
38 All these men of warre that coulde leade an armie, came with vpright heart to
Hebron to make Dauid King ouer all Israel: and all the rest of Israel was of one
accorde to make Dauid King:
39 And there they were with Dauid three dayes, eating and drinking: for their
brethren had prepared for them.
40 Moreouer they that were neere them vntill Issachar, and Zebulun, and Naphtali
brought bread vpon asses, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, euen meate,
floure, figges, and reisins, and wine and oyle, and beeues and sheepe
abundantly: for there was ioy in
1 And Dauid counselled with the captaines of thousandes and of hundreths, and
with all the gouernours.
2 And Dauid said to all the Congregation of Israel, If it seeme good to you, and
that it proceedeth of the Lorde our God, we will sende to and fro vnto our
brethren, that are left in all the lande of Israel (for with them are the
Priests and the Leuites in the cities and their suburbes) that they may assemble
them selues vnto vs.
3 And we will bring againe the Arke of our God to vs: for we sought not vnto it
in the dayes of Saul.
4 And all the Congregation answered, Let vs doe so: for the thing seemed good in
the eyes of all the people.
5 So Dauid gathered all
together from Shihor in
, euen vnto the entring of Hamath, to bring the Arke of God from Kiriath-iearim.
6 And Dauid went vp and all
to Baalath, in Kiriath-iearim, that was in Iudah, to bring vp from thence the
Arke of God the Lorde that dwelleth betweene the Cherubims, where his Name is
7 And they caryed the Arke of God in a newe cart out of the house of Abinadab:
and Vzza and Ahio guided the cart.
8 And Dauid and all
played before God with all their might, both with songes and with harpes, and
with violes, and with timbrels & with cymbales and with trumpets.
9 And when they came vnto the thresshing floore of Chidon, Vzza put forth his
hand to holde the Arke, for the oxen did shake it.
10 But the wrath of the Lord was kindled against Vzza, and he smote him, because
he layed his hande vpon the Arke: so he dyed there before God.
11 And Dauid was angrie, because the Lorde had made a breach in Vzza, and he
called the name of that place Perez-vzza vnto this day.
12 And Dauid feared God that day, saying, Howe shall I bring in to me the Arke
13 Therefore Dauid brought not the Arke to him into the citie of Dauid, but
caused it to turne into the house of Obed Edom the Gittite.
14 So the Arke of God remained in the house of Obed Edom, euen in his house
three moneths: and the Lorde blessed the house of Obed Edom, and all that he
1 Then sent Hiram the King of Tyrus messengers to Dauid, and cedar trees, with
masons and carpenters to builde him an house.
2 Therefore Dauid knewe that the Lord had confirmed him King ouer
, and that his kingdome was lift vp on hie, because of his people
3 Also Dauid tooke moe wiues at Ierusalem, and Dauid begate moe sonnes and
4 And these are the names of the children which he had at Ierusalem, Shammua,
and Shobab, Nathan, and Salomon,
5 And Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet,
6 And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Iaphia,
7 And Elishama, and Beeliada, & Eliphalet.
8 But when the Philistims heard that Dauid was anointed King ouer
, all the Philistims came vp to seeke Dauid; when Dauid heard, he went out
9 And the Philistims came, and spred them selues in the
10 Then Dauid asked counsel at God, saying, Shall I goe vp against the
Philistims, and wilt thou deliuer them into mine hande? And the Lorde saide vnto
him, Goe vp: for I will deliuer them into thine hande.
11 So they came vp to Baal-perazim, and Dauid smote them there: and Dauid said,
God hath deuided mine enemies with mine hande, as waters are deuided: therefore
they called the name of that place, Baal-perazim.
12 And there they had left their gods: and Dauid said, Let them euen be burnt
13 Againe the Philistims came and spread them selues in the valley.
14 And when Dauid asked againe counsell at God, God said to him, Thou shalt not
goe vp after them, but turne away from them, that thou mayest come vpon them
ouer against the mulberie trees.
15 And when thou hearest the noyse of one going in the toppes of the mulberie
trees, then goe out to battel: for God is gone foorth before thee, to smite the
hoste of the Philistims.
16 So Dauid did as God had commaunded him: and they smote the hoste of the
Philistims from Gibeon euen to
17 And the fame of Dauid went out into all landes, and the Lorde brought the
feare of him vpon all nations.
1 And Dauid made him houses in the citie of Dauid, and prepared a place for the
Arke of God, and pitched for it a tent.
2 Then Dauid saide, None ought to carie the Arke of God, but the Leuites: for
the Lorde hath chosen them to beare the Arke of the Lord, and to minister vnto
him for euer.
3 And Dauid gathered all
together to Ierusalem to bring vp the Arke of the Lorde vnto his place, which
he had ordeined for it.
4 And Dauid assembled the sonnes of Aaron, and the Leuites.
5 Of the sonnes of Kohath, Vriel the chiefe, and his brethren sixe score.
6 Of the sonnes of Merari, Asaiah the chiefe, and his brethren two hundreth and
7 Of the sonnes of Gershom, Ioel the chiefe, and his brethren an hundreth and
8 Of the sonnes of Elizaphan, Shemaiah the chiefe, and his brethren two hundreth.
9 Of the sonnes of
, Eliel the chiefe, and his brethren fourescore.
10 Of the sonnes of Vzziel, Amminadab the chiefe, and his brethren an hundreth
11 And Dauid called Zadok and Abiathar the Priestes, and of the Leuites, Vriel,
Asaiah and Ioel, Shemaiah, and Eliel, and Amminadab:
12 And he saide vnto them, Ye are the chiefe fathers of the Leuites: sanctifie
your selues, and your brethren, and bring vp the Arke of the Lorde God of Israel
vnto the place that I haue prepared for it.
13 For because ye were not there at the first, the Lorde our God made a breach
among vs: for we sought him not after due order.
14 So the Priestes and the Leuites sanctified them selues to bring vp the Arke
of the Lorde God of
15 And the sonnes of the Leuites bare the Arke of God vpon their shoulders with
the barres, as Moses had commanded, according to the worde of the Lorde.
16 And Dauid spake to the chiefe of the Leuites, that they should appoint
certaine of their brethren to sing with instruments of musike, with violes and
harpes, and cymbales, that they might make a sounde, and lift vp their voyce
17 So the Leuites appointed Heman the sonne of Ioel, and of his brethren Asaph
the sonne of Berechiah, and of the sonnes of Merari their brethren, Ethan the
sonne of Kushaiah,
18 And with them their brethren in the seconde degree, Zechariah, Ben, and
Iaaziel, and Shemiramoth, and Iehiel, and Vnni, Eliab, and Benaiah, and Maaseiah,
and Mattithiah, and Elipheleh, and Mikneah, and Obed Edom, and Ieiel the
19 So Heman, Asaph and Ethan were fingers to make a sounde with cymbales of
20 And Zechariah, and Aziel, and Shemiramoth, and Iehiel, and Vnni, and Eliab,
and Maaseiah, and Benaiah with violes on Alamoth,
21 And Mattithiah, and Elipheleh, and Mikneah, and Obed Edom, and Ieiel, and
Azaziah, with harpes vpon Sheminith Ienazzeah.
22 But Chenaniah the chiefe of the Leuites had the charge, bearing ye burden in
the charge, for he was able to instruct.
23 And Berechiah and Elkanah were porters for the Arke.
24 And Shecaniah and Iehoshaphat and Nethaneel and Amasai, and Zechariah, and
Benaiah, and Eliezer the Priestes did blowe with trumpets before the Arke of
God, and Obed Edom and Ieiiah were porters for the Arke.
25 So Dauid and the Elders of Israel and the captaines of thousandes went to
bring vp the Arke of the couenant of the Lord from the house of Obed Edom with
26 And because that God helped the Leuites that bare the Arke of the couenant of
the Lorde, they offered seuen bullockes and seuen rammes.
27 And Dauid had on him a linen garment, as all the Leuites that bare the Arke,
and the singers and Chenaniah that had the chiefe charge of the singers: and
vpon Dauid was a linnen Ephod.
28 Thus all
brought vp the Arke of the Lordes couenant with shouting and sounde of cornet,
and with trumpets, and with cymbales, making a sound with violes and with harpes.
29 And when the Arke of the couenant of the Lorde came into the citie of Dauid,
Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at a windowe, and sawe King Dauid
dauncing and playing, and she despised him in her heart.
1 So they brought in the Arke of God, and set it in the middes of the Tabernacle
that Dauid had pitched for it, and they offred burnt offrings and peace offrings
2 And when Dauid had made an ende of offering the burnt offering and the peace
offerings, hee blessed the people in the Name of the Lorde.
3 And he dealt to euery one of
both man and woman, to euery one a cake of breade, and a piece of flesh, and a
bottel of wine.
4 And he appointed certaine of the Leuites to minister before the Arke of the
Lorde, and to rehearse and to thanke and prayse the Lord God of Israel:
5 Asaph the chiefe, and next to him Zechariah, Ieiel, and Shemiramoth, and
Iehiel, & Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obed Edom, euen Ieiel with
instruments, violes and harpes, and Asaph to make a sound with cymbales,
6 And Benaiah and Iahaziel Priestes, with trumpets continually before the Arke
of the couenant of God.
7 Then at that time Dauid did appoint at the beginning to giue thankes to the
Lorde by the hand of Asaph and his brethren.
8 Praise the Lorde and call vpon his Name: declare his workes among the people.
9 Sing vnto him, sing praise vnto him, and talke of all his wonderfull workes.
10 Reioyce in his holy Name: let the hearts of them that seeke the Lord reioyce.
11 Seeke the Lord and his strength: seeke his face continually.
12 Remember his marueilous workes that he hath done, his wonders, and the
iudgementes of his mouth,
13 O seede of
his seruant, O the children of Iaakob his chosen.
14 He is the Lorde our God: his iudgements are throughout all the earth.
15 Remember his couenant for euer, and the worde, which hee commaunded to a
16 Which he made with Abraham, and his othe to Izhak:
17 And hath confirmed it to Iaakob for a Law, & to Israel for an euerlasting
18 Saying, To thee will I giue the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance.
19 When ye were fewe in number, yea, a very fewe, and strangers therein,
20 And walked about from nation to nation, and from one kingdome to another
21 He suffered no man to do them wrong, but rebuked Kings for their sakes,
22 Touch not mine anoynted, and doe my Prophets no harme.
23 Sing vnto the Lord all the earth: declare his saluation from day to day.
24 Declare his glory among the nations, and his wonderful workes among all
25 For the Lorde is great & much to be praised, and hee is to bee feared
aboue all gods.
26 For all the gods of the people are idoles, but the Lord made the heauens.
27 Prayse and glory are before him: power & beautie are in his place.
28 Giue vnto the Lord, ye families of the people: giue vnto the Lord glory and
29 Giue vnto the Lorde ye glory of his Name: bring an offring and come before
him, and worship the Lorde in the glorious Sanctuarie.
30 Tremble ye before him, al the earth: surely the world shalbe stable and not
31 Let the heauens reioyce, and let the earth be glad, and let them say among
the nations, The Lorde reigneth.
32 Let the sea roare, and all that therein is: Let the field be ioyfull and all
that is in it.
33 Let the trees of the wood then reioyce at the presence of the Lorde: for he
commeth to iudge the earth.
34 Prayse the Lorde, for hee is good, for his mercie endureth for euer.
35 And say ye, Saue vs, O God, our saluation, and gather vs, and deliuer vs from
the heathen, that we may prayse thine holy Name, and glorie in thy praise.
36 Blessed be the Lord God of
for euer and euer: and let all people say, So be it, and praise the Lorde.
37 Then he left there before the Arke of the Lordes couenant Asaph and his
brethren to minister continually before the Arke, that which was to be done
38 And Obed Edom and his brethren, three score and eight: and Obed Edom the
sonne of Ieduthun, and Hosah were porters.
39 And Zadok the Priest and his brethren the Priestes were before the Tabernacle
of ye Lorde, in the hie place that was at Gibeon,
40 To offer burnt offrings vnto the Lord, vpon the burnt offring altar
continually, in the morning and in the euening, euen according vnto all that is
written in the law of the Lord, which hee commaunded Israel.
41 And with them were Heman, and Ieduthun, and the rest that were chosen (which
were appointed by names) to praise the Lorde, because his mercie endureth for
42 Euen with them were Heman & Ioduthun, to make a sound with the cornets
and with the cymbales, with excellent instruments of musicke: and the sonnes of
Ieduthun were at the gate.
43 And all the people departed, euerie man to his house: and Dauid returned to
blesse his house.
1 Nowe afterward when Dauid dwelt in his house, he saide to Nathan the Prophet,
Beholde, I dwell in an house of cedar trees, but the Arke of the Lordes couenant
remaineth vnder curtaines.
2 Then Nathan said to Dauid, Do all that is in thine heart: for God is with
3 And the same night euen the word of God came to Nathan, saying,
4 Goe, and tell Dauid my seruant, Thus saith the Lorde, Thou shalt not buylde me
an house to dwell in:
5 For I haue dwelt in no house, since the day that I brought out the childre of
Israel vnto this daye, but I haue bene from tent to tent, and from habitation to
6 Wheresoeuer I haue walked with all
spake I one word to any of the iudges of
(whome I commanded to feede my people) saying, Why haue ye not built mee an
house of cedar trees?
7 Nowe therefore thus shalt thou say vnto my seruant Dauid, Thus saith the Lorde
of hostes, I tooke thee from the sheepecoat and from following the sheepe, that
thou shouldest bee a prince ouer my people
8 And I haue bene with thee whithersoeuer thou hast walked, and haue destroyed
all thine enemies out of thy sight, and haue made thee a name, like the name of
the great men that are in the earth.
9 (Also I will appoynt a place for my people Israel, and will plant it, that
they may dwell in their place, and moue no more: neither shall the wicked people
vexe them any more, as at the beginning,
10 And since the time that I commaunded iudges ouer my people Israel) And I wil
subdue all thine enemies: therefore I say vnto thee, that the Lord wil buylde
thee an house.
11 And when thy dayes shalbe fulfilled to go with thy fathers, then will I rayse
vp thy seede after thee, which shalbe of thy sonnes, and will stablish his
12 He shall builde me an house, and I will stablish his throne for euer.
13 I wil be his father, and he shalbe my sonne, aud I will not take my mercie
away from him, as I tooke it from him that was before thee.
14 But I wil establish him in mine house, and in my kingdome for euer, and his
throne shalbe stablished for euer,
15 According to all these wordes, and according to al this vision. So Nathan
spake to Dauid.
16 And Dauid the King went in and sate before the Lord & said, Who am I, O
Lord God, and what is mine house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?
17 Yet thou esteeming this a small thing, O God, hast also spoken concerning the
house of thy seruaut for a great while, & hast regarded me according to the
estate of a man of hie degree, O Lord God.
18 What can Dauid desire more of thee for the honour of thy seruant? for thou
knowest thy seruant.
19 O Lorde, for thy seruantes sake, euen according to thine heart hast thou done
all this great thing to declare all magnificence.
20 Lorde, there is none like thee, neither is there any God besides thee,
according to all that we haue heard with our eares.
21 Moreouer what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel, whose God
went to redeeme them to be his people, and to make thy selfe a Name, and to doe
great and terrible things by casting out nations from before thy people, whom
thou hast deliuered out of Egypt?
22 For thou hast ordeined thy people
to be thine owne people for euer, and thou Lord art become their God.
23 Therefore nowe Lorde, let the thing that thou hast spoken concerning thy
seruant & concerning his house, be confirmed for euer, and doe as thou hast
24 And let thy name be stable and magnified for euer, that it may be sayd, The
Lorde of hostes, God of Israel, is the God of Israel, and let the house of Dauid
thy seruant bee stablished before thee.
25 For thou, O my God, hast reueiled vnto the eare of thy seruant, that thou
wilt builde him an house: therefore thy seruant hath bene bolde to pray before
26 Therefore nowe Lord (for thou art God, & hast spoken this goodnesse vnto
27 Now therfore, it hath pleased thee to blesse the house of thy seruant, that
it may bee before thee for euer: for thou, O Lord, hast blessed it, and it
shalbe blessed for euer.
1 And after this Dauid smote the Philistims, & subdued them, and tooke
, and the villages thereof out of the hand of the Philistims.
2 And he smote
, and the Moabites became Dauids seruants, and brought giftes.
3 And Dauid smote Hadarezer King of Zobah vnto Hamath, as he went to stablish
his border by the riuer Perath.
4 And Dauid tooke from him a thousand charets, and seuen thousand horsemen, and
twentie thousand footemen, and destroyed all the charets, but he reserued of
them an hundreth charets.
5 Then came the Aramites of Damascus to succour Hadarezer King of Zobah, but
Dauid slewe of the Aramites two and twentie thousand.
6 And Dauid put a garison in Aram of Damascus, & the Aramites became Dauids
seruants, and brought giftes: and the Lorde preserued Dauid wheresoeuer he went.
7 And Dauid tooke the shieldes of gold that were of the seruants of Hadarezer,
and brought them to Ierusalem.
8 And from Tibhath, and from Chun (cities of Hadarezer) brought Dauid exceeding
much brasse, wherewith Salomon made the
, and the pillars and the vessels of brasse.
9 Then Tou King of Hamath heard howe Dauid had smitten all the hoste of
Hadarezer King of Zobah:
10 Therefore he sent Hadoram his sonne to King Dauid, to salute him, and to
reioyce with him, because he had fought against Hadarezer, & beaten him (for
Tou had warre with Hadarezer) who brought all vessels of golde and siluer and
11 And King Dauid did dedicate them vnto the Lorde, with the siluer and golde
that hee brought from all the nations, from
, and from
, and from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistims, and from Amalek.
12 And Abishai the sonne of Zeruiah smote of
in the salt valley eighteene thousand,
13 And he put a garison in
, and all the Edomites became Dauids seruantes: and the Lord preserued Dauid
wheresoeuer he went.
14 So Dauid reigned ouer all
, and executed iudgement and iustice to all his people.
15 And Ioab the sonne of Zeruiah was ouer the hoste, and Iehoshaphat the sonne
of Ahilud recorder,
16 And Zadok the sonne of Ahitub, and Abimelech the sonne of Abiathar were the
Priests, & Shausha the Scribe,
17 And Benaiah the sonne of Iehoiada was ouer the Cherethites and the Pelethites:
and the sonnes of Dauid were chiefe about the King.
1 After this also Nahash the King of the children of Ammon dyed, and his sonne
reigned in his stead.
2 And Dauid said, I will shew kindnesse vnto Hanun the sonne of Nahash, because
his father shewed kindnesse vnto me; Dauid sent messengers to comfort him for
his father. So the seruants of Dauid came into the lande of the children of
Ammon to Hanun to comfort him.
3 And the princes of the children of Ammon said to Hanun, Thinkest thou that
Dauid doeth honour thy father, that he hath sent comforters vnto thee? Are not
his seruants come to thee to search, to seeke and to spie out the land?
4 Wherefore Hanun tooke Dauids seruants, and shaued them, & cut off their
garments by the halfe vnto the buttocks, and sent them away.
5 And there went certaine and tolde Dauid concerning the men: and he sent to
meete them (for the men were exceedingly ashamed) and the King saide, Tarie at
Iericho, vntill your beardes be growen: then returne.
6 When the children of Ammon saw that they stanke in the sight of Dauid, then
sent Hanun and the children of Ammon a thousande talents of siluer to hire them
charets and horsemen out of Aram Naharaim and out of Aram Maachah, and out of
7 And they hired them two and thirty thousande charets, and the King of Maachah
and his people, which came and pitched before Medeba: and the children of Ammon
gathered themselues together from their cities, and came to the battell.
8 And when Dauid heard, he sent Ioab and all the hoste of the valiant men.
9 And the children of Ammon came out, and set their battell in aray at the gate
of the citie; the Kings that were come, were by them selues in the fielde.
10 When Ioab saw that the front of the battel was against him before and behinde,
then he chose out of all the choyse of
, and set him selfe in aray to meete the Aramites.
11 And the rest of the people he deliuered vnto the hande of Abishai his
brother, and they put them selues in aray against the children of Ammon.
12 And he saide, If Aram be too strong for me, then thou shalt succour me: and
if the children of Ammon preuaile against thee, then I wil succour thee.
13 Be strong, and let vs shewe our selues valiant for our people, and for the
cities of our God, and let the Lorde doe that which is good in his owne sight.
14 So Ioab and the people that was with him, came neere before the Aramites vnto
the battel, and they fled before him.
15 And when the children of Ammon sawe that the Aramites fled, they fled also
before Abishai his brother, and entred into the citie: so Ioab came to Ierusalem.
16 And when the Aramites sawe that they were discomfited before
, they sent messengers & caused the Aramites to come forth that were beyond
the riuer: and Shophach the captaine of the hoste of Hadarezer went before them.
17 And when it was shewed Dauid, he gathered all
, and went ouer Iorden, and came vnto them, & put him selfe in aray against
them: And when Dauid had put him selfe in battel aray to meete the Aramites,
they fought with him.
18 But the Aramites fled before
, and Dauid destroyed of the Aramites seuen thousand charets, and fourtie
thousand footemen, and killed Shophach the captaine of the hoste.
19 And when the seruants of Hadarezer sawe that they fell before
, they made peace with Dauid, and serued him; the Aramites would no more succour
the children of Ammon.
1 And when the yere was expired, in the time that Kings goe out a warfare, Ioab
caryed out the strength of the armie, and destroyed the countrey of the children
of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah (but Dauid taryed at Ierusalem) &
Ioab smote Rabbah & destroyed it.
2 Then Dauid tooke the crowne of their King from off his head, and founde it the
weight of a talent of golde, with precious stones in it: and it was set on
Dauids head, and he brought away the spoyle of the citie exceeding much.
3 And he caryed away the people that were in it, and cut them with sawes, and
with harowes of yron, and with axes: euen thus did Dauid with all the cities of
the children of Ammon. Then Dauid and all the people came againe to Ierusalem.
4 And after this also there arose warre at
with the Philistims: then Sibbechai the Hushathite slewe Sippai, of the
children of Haraphah, and they were subdued.
5 And there was yet another battell with the Philistims: and Elhanan the sonne
of Iair slewe Lahmi, the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spearestaffe was
like a weauers beame.
6 And yet againe there was a battel at
, where was a man of a great stature, & his fingers were by sixes, euen
foure and twentie, and was also the sonne of Haraphah.
7 And when he reuiled
, Iehonathan the sonne of Shimea Dauids brother did slay him.
8 These were borne vnto Haraphah at
, and fell by the hand of Dauid: and by the hands of his seruants.
1 And Satan stoode vp against
, and prouoked Dauid to nomber
2 Therefore Dauid said to Ioab, and to the rulers of the people, Go, and nomber
from Beer-sheba euen to Dan, and bring it to me, that I may knowe the nomber of
3 And Ioab answered, The Lord increase his people an hundreth times so many as
they be, O my lord the King: are they not all my lords seruats? Wherefore doeth
my lord require this thing? Why should he be a cause of trespasse to
4 Neuerthelesse the Kings word preuailed against Ioab; Ioab departed and went
, and returned to Ierusalem.
5 And Ioab gaue the nomber and summe of the people vnto Dauid: and all
were eleuen hundreth thousande men that drewe sword: and Iudah was foure
hundreth and seuentie thousande men that drewe sword.
6 But the Leuites and Beniamin counted he not among them: for the Kings worde
was abominable to Ioab.
7 And God was displeased with this thing: therefore he smote
8 Then Dauid saide vnto God, I haue sinned greatly, because I haue done this
thing: but now, I beseech thee, remooue the iniquitie of thy seruant: for I haue
done very foolishly.
9 And the Lorde spake vnto Gad Dauids Seer, saying,
10 Goe and tell Dauid, saying, Thus saith the Lorde, I offer thee three thinges:
choose thee one of them, that I may doe it vnto thee.
11 So Gad came to Dauid, and sayde vnto him, Thus saith the Lord, Take to thee
12 Either three yeeres famine, or three moneths to be destroyed before thine
aduersaries, and the sworde of thine enemies to take thee, or els the sworde of
the Lorde and pestilence in the lande three dayes, that the Angel of the Lorde
may destroy throughout all the coastes of Israel: nowe therefore aduise thee,
what word I shal bring againe to him that sent me.
13 And Dauid said vnto Gad, I am in a wonderfull strait. Let me nowe fall into
the hande of the Lorde: for his mercies are exceeding great, and let me not fall
into the hande of man.
14 So the Lord sent a pestilence in
, and there fell of
seuentie thousande men.
15 And God sent the Angel into Ierusalem to destroy it; as he was destroying,
the Lorde behelde, and repented of the euill and sayde to the Angel that
destroyed, It is nowe ynough, let thine hande cease. Then the Angel of the Lord
stoode by the thresshing floore of Ornan the Iebusite.
16 And Dauid lift vp his eyes, and sawe the Angel of the Lorde stande betweene
the earth and the heauen with his sworde drawen in his hand, and stretched out
towarde Ierusalem. Then Dauid and the Elders of Israel, which were clothed in
sacke, fell vpon their faces.
17 And Dauid said vnto God, Is it not I that commanded to nomber the people? It
is euen I that haue sinned and haue committed euil, but these sheepe what haue
they done? O Lorde my God, I beseech thee, let thine hande be on me and on my
fathers house, and not on thy people for their destruction.
18 Then the Angel of the Lord commanded Gad to say to Dauid, that Dauid should
goe vp, and set vp an altar vnto the Lord in the thresshing floore of Ornan the
19 So Dauid went vp according to the saying of Gad, which he had spoken in the
Name of the Lorde.
20 And Ornan turned about, and sawe the Angel, and his foure sonnes, that were
with him, hid them selues, and Ornan thresshed wheat.
21 And as Dauid came to Ornan, Ornan looked and sawe Dauid, and went out of the
thresshing floore, and bowed himselfe to Dauid with his face to the grounde.
22 And Dauid saide to Ornan, Giue me the place of thy thresshing floore, that I
may builde an altar therein vnto the Lorde: giue it me for sufficient money,
that the plague may be stayed from the people.
23 Then Ornan saide vnto Dauid, Take it to thee, and let my lord the King do
that which seemeth him good: loe, I giue thee bullockes for burnt offrings, and
thresshing instruments for wood, and wheat for meate offring, I giue it all.
24 And King Dauid saide to Ornan, Not so: but I will bye it for sufficient
money: for I wil not take that which is thine for the Lord, nor offer burnt
offrings without cost.
25 So Dauid gaue to Ornan for that place sixe hundreth shekels of golde by
26 And Dauid built there an altar vnto the Lorde, and offred burnt offrings, and
peace offrings, and called vpon the Lorde, and he answered him by fire from
heauen vpon the altar of burnt offring.
27 And when the Lorde had spoken to the Angel, he put vp his sworde againe into
28 At that time when Dauid sawe that the Lorde had heard him in the thresshing
floore of Ornan the Iebusite, then he sacrificed there.
29 (But the Tabernacle of the Lorde which Moses had made in the wildernesse, and
the altar of burnt offring were at that season in the hie place at
30 And Dauid could not go before it to aske counsel at God: for he was afraide
of the sworde of the Angel of the Lorde.)
1 And Dauid saide, This is the house of the Lorde God, and this is the altar for
the burnt offring of
2 And Dauid commanded to gather together the strangers that were in the lande of
, and he set masons to hewe and polish stones to builde the house of God.
3 Dauid also prepared much yron for the nayles of the doores and of the gates,
and for the ioynings, and abundance of brasse passing weight,
4 And cedar trees without nomber: for the Zidonians and they of Tyrus brought
much cedar wood to Dauid.
5 And Dauid saide, Salomon my sonne is yong and tender, and we must builde an
house for the Lorde, magnificall, excellent and of great fame and dignitie
throughout all countreyes. I will therefore nowe prepare for him. So Dauid
prepared very much before his death.
6 Then he called Salomon his sonne, and charged him to builde an house for the
Lorde God of
7 And Dauid said to Salomon, My sonne, I purposed with my selfe to builde an
house to the Name of the Lorde my God,
8 But the worde of the Lorde came to me, saying, Thou hast shed much blood, and
hast made great battels: thou shalt not builde an house vnto my Name: for thou
hast shead much blood vpon the earth in my sight.
9 Beholde, a sonne is borne to thee, which shalbe a man of rest, for I will giue
him rest from all his enemies rounde about: therefore his name is Salomon: and I
will sende peace and quietnes vpon Israel in his dayes.
10 Hee shall builde an house for my Name, and he shalbe my sonne, and I will be
his father, and I will establish the throne of his kingdome vpon
11 Nowe therefore my sonne, the Lord shalbe with thee, and thou shalt prosper,
and thou shalt builde an house to the Lorde thy God, as he hath spoken of thee.
12 Onely the Lorde giue thee wisedome and vnderstanding, and giue thee charge
, euen to keepe the Lawe of the Lord thy God.
13 Then thou shalt prosper, if thou take heede to obserue the statutes and the
iudgements which the Lorde commanded Moses for
: be strong and of good courage: feare not, neither bee afraide.
14 For beholde, according to my pouertie haue I prepared for the house of the
Lord an hundreth thousand talents of golde, and a thousand thousande talents of
siluer, and of brasse and of yron passing weight: for there was abundance: I
haue also prepared timber and stone, and thou mayest prouide more thereto.
15 Moreouer thou hast workmen with thee enough, hewers of stone, and workemen
for timber, and all men expert in euery worke.
16 Of golde, of siluer, and of brasse, and of yron there is no nomber: Vp
therefore, and be doing, and the Lord wilbe with thee.
17 Dauid also commanded all the princes of
to helpe Salomon his sonne, saying,
18 Is not the Lord your God with you, and hath giuen you rest on euerie side?
for hee hath giuen the inhabitants of the land into mine hand, and the land is
subdued before the Lord and before his people.
19 Nowe set your hearts and your soules to seeke the Lorde your God, and arise,
and builde the Sanctuarie of the Lorde God to bring the Arke of the couenant of
the Lord, and the holy vessels of God into the house built for the Name of the

aud Vzziel, foure.
13 The sonnes of Amram, Aaron and Moses: and Aaron was separated to sanctifie

26 And also the Leuites shall no more beare the Tabernacle and al the vessels
for the seruice thereof.
27 Therefore according to the last wordes of Dauid, the Leuites were nombred

28 And their office was vnder the hand of the sonnes of Aaron, for the seruice
of the house of the Lorde in the courtes, and chambers, and in the purifiyng of

1 These are also the diuisions of the sonnes of Aaron: The sonnes of Aaron were
Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

6 And Shemaiah the sonne of Nethaneel the scribe of the Leuites, wrote them

32 And Iehonathan Dauids vncle a man of counsell & vnderstanding (for he was

33 And Ahitophel was the Kings counseller, and Hushai the Archite the Kings

1 Nowe Dauid assembled all the princes of Israel: the princes of the tribes, and

and the captaines of hundreths, and the rulers of all the substance &
possession of the King, and of his sonnes, with the eunuches, and the mightie,
and all the men of power, vnto Ierusalem.
2 And King Dauid stoode vp vpon his feete; and saide, Heare ye me, my brethren
and my people: I purposed to haue buylt an house of rest for the Arke of the
couenant of the Lord, and for a footestoole of our God, and haue made ready for
3 But God sayde vnto me, Thou shalt not buylde an house for my Name, because
thou hast bene a man of warre, and hast shed blood.
4 Yet as the Lord God of Israel chose me before all the house of my father, to
be King ouer Israel for euer (for in Iudah woulde he chuse a prince, & of
the house of Iudah is the house of my father, & among the sonnes of my
father he delited in me to make me King ouer all Israel)
5 So of all my sonnes (for the Lord hath giuen me many sonnes) he hath euen
chosen Salomon my sonne to sit vpo the throne of the kingdome of the Lord ouer
6 And he sayd vnto me, Salomon thy sonne, he shall build mine house and my
courtes: for I haue chosen him to be my sonne, and I will be his father.
7 I will stablish therefore his kingdome for euer, if he endeuour himselfe to do
my commandements, and my iudgements, as this day.
8 Now therefore in the sight of all
the Congregation of the Lorde, and in the audience of our God, keepe and seeke
for all the commandements of the Lord your God, that ye may possesse this good
lande, and leaue it for an inheritance for your children after you for euer.
9 And thou, Salomon my sonne, know thou the God of thy father, and serue him
with a perfit heart, and with a willing minde: For the Lorde searcheth all
hearts, and vnderstandeth all the imaginations of thoughts: if thou seeke him,
he will be found of thee, but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for
10 Take heede now, for the Lord hath chosen thee to buylde the house of the
Sanctuarie: be strong therefore, and doe it.
11 Then Dauid gaue to Salomon his sonne the paterne of the porch and of the
houses thereof, and of the closets thereof, and of the galleries thereof, and of
the chambers thereof that are within, and of the house of the mercieseate,
12 And the paterne of all that he had in his minde for the courtes of the house
of the Lorde, and for all the chambers round about, for the treasures of the
house of God, and for the treasures of the dedicate things,
13 And for the courses of the Priestes, and of the Leuites, and for all the
woorke for the seruice of the house of the Lorde, and for all the vessels of the
ministerie of the house of the Lord.
14 He gaue of golde by weight, for the vessels of gold, for all the vessels of
all maner of seruice, and all the vessels of siluer by weight, for all maner
vessels of all maner of seruice.
15 The weight also of golde for the candlestickes, & gold for their lampes,
with the weight for euery candlesticke, and for the lampes thereof, and for the
candlestickes of siluer by the weight of the candlesticke, and the lampes
thereof, according to the vse of euery candlesticke,
16 And the weight of the gold for the tables of shewbread, for euery table,
& siluer for the tables of siluer,
17 And pure golde for the fleshhookes, and the bowles, and plates, and for
basens, golde in weight for euery basen, and for siluer basens, by weight for
18 And for the altar of incense, pure golde by weight, and golde for the paterne
of the charet of the Cherubs that spread themselues, and couered the Arke of the
couenant of the Lord:
19 All, said he, by writing sent to me by the hand of the Lord, which made me
vnderstand all the workemanship of the paterne.
20 And Dauid said to Salomon his sonne, Be strong, and of a valiant courage and
doe it: feare not, nor be afraide: for the Lorde God, euen my God is with thee:
he will not leaue thee nor forsake thee till thou hast finished all the worke
for the seruice of the house of the Lord.
21 Beholde also, the companies of the Priests and the Leuites for all the
seruice of the house of God, euen they shall be with thee for the whole worke,
with euery free heart that is skilfull in any maner of seruice. The princes also
and all the people will be wholy at thy commandement.
1 Moreouer Dauid the King sayde vnto all the Congregation, God hath chosen
Salomon mine onely sonne yong and tender, and the worke is great: for this house
is not for man, but for the Lord God.
2 Now I haue prepared with all my power for the house of my God, golde for
vessels of golde, and siluer for them of siluer, and brasse for things of brasse,
yron for things of yron, & wood for things of wood, and onix stones, and
stones to be set, and carbuncle stones and of diuers colours, and all precious
stones, and marble stones in aboundance.
3 Moreouer, because I haue delite in the house of my God, I haue of mine owne
golde and siluer, which I haue giuen to the house of my God, beside all that I
haue prepared for the house of the Sanctuarie,
4 Euen three thousand talents of gold of the golde of Ophir, and seuen thousand
talents of fined siluer to ouerlay the walles of the houses.
5 The golde for the things of golde, and the siluer for things of siluer, and
for all the worke by the handes of artificers: and who is willing to fill his
hand to day vnto the Lord?
6 So the princes of the families, and the princes of the tribes of Israel, and
the captaines of thousands and of hundreths, with the rulers of the Kings worke,
7 And they gaue for the seruice of the house of God fiue thousande talents of
golde, and ten thousand pieces, and ten thousand talents of siluer, and
eighteene thousand talents of brasse, and one hundreth thousand talents of yron.
8 And they with whom precious stones were found, gaue them to the treasure of ye
house of the Lord, by the hand of Iehiel the Gershunnite.
9 And the people reioyced when they offred willingly: for they offred willingly
vnto ye Lord, with a perfite heart; Dauid the King also reioyced with great ioy.
10 Therefore Dauid blessed the Lord before all the Congregation, and Dauid sayde,
Blessed be thou, O Lorde God, of Israel our father, for euer and euer.
11 Thine, O Lord, is greatnesse & power, and glory, and victorie &
praise: for all that is in heauen and in earth is thine: thine is the kingdome,
O Lord, and thou excellest as head ouer all.
12 Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest ouer all, and in thine
hand is power and strength, and in thine hande it is to make great, and to giue
strength vnto all.
13 Now therefore our God, we thanke thee, and prayse thy glorious Name.
14 But who am I, and what is my people, that we shoulde be able to offer
willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee: and of thine owne hand
we haue giuen thee.
15 For we are stragers before thee, & soiourners, like all our fathers: our
dayes are like ye shadowe vpon the earth, & there is none abiding.
16 O Lorde our God, all this abundance that we haue prepared to buylde thee an
house for thine holy Name, is of thine hand & all is thine.
17 I knowe also, my God, that thou tryest the heart, and hast pleasure in
righteousnesse: I haue offred willingly in the vprightnesse of mine heart all
these things: now also haue I seene thy people which are found here, to offer
vnto thee willingly with ioy.
18 O Lord God of Abraham, Izhak and
our fathers, keepe this for euer in the purpose, and the thoughts of the heart
of thy people, and prepare their hearts vnto thee.
19 And giue vnto Salomon my sonne a perfit heart to keepe thy commaundements,
thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to doe all things, and to builde the
house which I haue prepared.
20 And Dauid said to all the Congregation, Now blesse the Lord your God; all the
Congregation blessed the Lord God of their fathers, and bowed downe their heads,
and worshipped the Lord and the King.
21 And they offred sacrifices vnto the Lorde, and on the morowe after that day,
they offered burnt offrings vnto the Lorde, euen a thousande yong bullocks, a
thousand rammes and a thousand sheepe, with their drinke offrings, and
sacrifices in abundance for all Israel.
22 And they did eate and drinke before the Lord the same day with great ioy, and
they made Salomon the sonne of Dauid King the seconde time, and anoynted him
prince before the Lord, and Zadok for the hie Priest.
23 So Salomon sate on the throne of the Lorde, as King in steade of Dauid his
father, and prospered: and all
24 And all the princes and men of power, and all the sonnes of King Dauid
submitted them selues vnder King Salomon.
25 And the Lord magnified Salomon in dignitie, in the sight of all
, and gaue him so glorious a kingdome, as no King had before him in
26 Thus Dauid the sonne of Ishai reigned ouer all Israel.
27 And the space that he reigned ouer Israel, was fourtie yeere: seuen yeere
reigned he in Hebron, and three and thirtie yeere reigned he in Ierusalem:
28 And he dyed in a good age, full of dayes, riches and honour, and Salomon his
sonne reigned in his steade.
29 Concerning the actes of Dauid the King first & last, behold, they are
written in the booke of Samuel the Seer, & in the booke of Nathan the
Prophet, and in the booke of Gad the Seer,
30 With all his reigne and his power, and times that went ouer him, and ouer
Israel and ouer all the kingdomes of the earth.
