Мысли вслух на Sa2 5:1-25

All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, "We are your own flesh and blood.
In the past, while Saul was king over us, you were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. And the LORD said to you, 'You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler.' "
When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, the king made a compact with them at Hebron before the LORD , and they anointed David king over Israel.
David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years.
In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned over all Israel and Judah thirty-three years.
The king and his men marched to Jerusalem to attack the Jebusites, who lived there. The Jebusites said to David, "You will not get in here; even the blind and the lame can ward you off." They thought, "David cannot get in here."
Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion, the City of David.
On that day, David said, "Anyone who conquers the Jebusites will have to use the water shaft1 5:8 Or use scaling hooks to reach those 'lame and blind' who are David's enemies.2 5:8 Or are hated by David " That is why they say, "The 'blind and lame' will not enter the palace."
David then took up residence in the fortress and called it the City of David. He built up the area around it, from the supporting terraces3 5:9 Or the Millo inward.
10  And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him.
11  Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar logs and carpenters and stonemasons, and they built a palace for David.
12  And David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel and had exalted his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel.
13  After he left Hebron, David took more concubines and wives in Jerusalem, and more sons and daughters were born to him.
14  These are the names of the children born to him there: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon,
15  Ibhar, Elishua, Nepheg, Japhia,
16  Elishama, Eliada and Eliphelet.
17  When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over Israel, they went up in full force to search for him, but David heard about it and went down to the stronghold.
18  Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim;
19  so David inquired of the LORD , "Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?"
The LORD answered him, "Go, for I will surely hand the Philistines over to you."
20  So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, "As waters break out, the LORD has broken out against my enemies before me." So that place was called Baal Perazim.4 5:20 Baal Perazim means the lord who breaks out .
21  The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off.
22  Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim;
23  so David inquired of the LORD , and he answered, "Do not go straight up, but circle around behind them and attack them in front of the balsam trees.
24  As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, move quickly, because that will mean the LORD has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army."
25  So David did as the LORD commanded him, and he struck down the Philistines all the way from Gibeon5 5:25 Septuagint (see also 1 Chron. 14:16); Hebrew Geba to Gezer.

Настал победный час Давида, теперь он царствует над всем Израилем. Объединив страну, он входит в Иерусалим, город, которому отныне предстоит стать сердцем Святой Земли.

Немирно входит Давид в город, имя которого буквально означает «Владение мира». Он жестоко поражает не только защитников крепости, но и, мстя за насмешку над собой, приказывает уничтожить слепых и хромых, неспособных к реальному сопротивлению. Отвоёванному городу предстоит стать городом дома Господня, и правило о недопущении туда слепых и хромых соблюдено Давидом с превышающей любые установления степенью суровости.

Но пройдут годы, и на той земле, которую Давид объединил, Сын Давидов будет исцелять и слепых, и хромых. А в городе, завоёванном Давидом, будет проповедана Весть о спасении для всех — и слепых, и хромых, и всех отверженных...

Давиду ещё раз приходится сразиться с филистимлянами. Но эта война отличается от многочисленных предыдущих одним обстоятельством: впервые враги хотят испытать на прочность только что утвердившуюся державу Давида. Но сердце Давида, как и прежде, открыто Господу, и Господь и на этот раз даёт победу Своему народу.
