2 In days past when Saul was king, it was you who led Israel on its campaigns, and Yahweh your God promised you, "You are to shepherd my people Israel and be leader of my people Israel." '
2Sam 5:2 2Sam 7:7 Matt 2:6 Ps 78:71 1Kgs 3:9 1Kgs 14:7 1Sam 16:1

4 David and all Israel then marched on Jerusalem (that is to say, Jebus); the inhabitants of the territory were the Jebusites.

1Chr 11:7 1Kgs 8:1 1Sam 17:9-10 1Sam 17:26 1Sam 17:36 2Chr 5:2 2Sam 5:9
6 David said, 'The first man to kill a Jebusite will be made army commander and chief.' Joab son of Zeruiah was the first man to go up, and was made commander of the army.
2Sam 8:16 1Sam 17:25 2Sam 2:18 2Sam 3:27 2Sam 20:23 Josh 15:16-17
7 David went to live in the citadel, and that is how it came to be called the City of David.
1Chr 11:5 2Sam 5:7 Ps 2:6
8 He then built a wall round the city, all round, beginning from the Millo, and Joab restored the rest of the city.
1Kgs 9:15 1Kgs 11:27 2Kgs 12:20 Judg 9:6 Judg 9:20 Neh 4:2

2Sam 3:1 Rom 8:31 1Chr 9:20 2Sam 5:10 Esth 9:4 Isa 8:9-10 Isa 9:7

1Sam 10:5 1Sam 13:4 1Sam 13:23 1Sam 22:1 1Sam 23:25 Ps 142:1
17 Longingly, David said, 'If only someone would fetch me a drink of water from the well that stands by the gate at Bethlehem!'
2Sam 23:15-16 Isa 12:3 John 4:10 John 4:14 Num 11:4-5 Ps 42:1-2 Ps 63:1
18 At this the three champions, forcing their way through the Philistine camp, drew water from the well that stands by the gate of Bethlehem and, bringing it away, presented it to David. David, however, would not drink any of it, but poured it out as a libation to Yahweh.
1Sam 7:6 1Sam 19:5 2Cor 5:14-15 Acts 20:24 Acts 21:13 Song 8:6
19 'God preserve me', he said, 'from doing such a thing! Am I to drink these men's blood? For at the risk of their lives they brought it.' And so he would not drink. Such were the deeds of the three champions.

2Sam 8:18 Josh 15:21 1Chr 12:8 1Chr 27:5-6 1Kgs 1:8 1Kgs 1:38 1Kgs 2:30
23 He also slaughtered an Egyptian, a man who was seven and a half feet tall. The Egyptian was armed with a spear in his hand like a weaver's beam, but he took him on with a staff, tore the spear from the Egyptian's hand and killed the man with it.
1Sam 17:7 1Chr 20:5 1Sam 17:4 1Sam 17:51 Deut 3:11
