1 Chronicles 11: 4-9 PDF Print E-mail
Then David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, that
is, Jebus, where the natives of the land were called
Jebusites.
The inhabitants of Jebus said to David, "You shall
not enter here."
David nevertheless captured the fortress of
Zion, which is the City of David.
David said, "Whoever strikes the Jebusites first
shall be made the chief commander." Joab, the son of Zeruiah,
was the first to go up; and so he became chief.
David took up his residence in the fortress, which
thenceforth was called the City of David.
He rebuilt the city on all sides, from the Millo all
the way around, while Joab restored the rest of the city.
David became more and more powerful, for the LORD of
hosts was with him.
