David Takes More WivesThen Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David with cedar trees and craftsmen of walls and craftsmen of wood, to build a house for him. 2 Thus David knew that Yahweh had established him as king over Israel, and that his kingdom was lifted up, for the sake of His people Israel. 3 Then David took more wives at Jerusalem, and David became the father of more sons and daughters. 4 These are the names of the children born to him in Jerusalem:
Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, 5
Ibhar, Elishua, Elpelet, 6
Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia, 7
Elishama, Beeliada, and Eliphelet.
