Bible: 1 Chronicles 11:4-6

David Conquers Jerusalem

11:4 David and the whole Israelite army 1  advanced to Jerusalem (that is, Jebus). 2  (The Jebusites, the land’s original inhabitants, lived there.) 3  11:5 The residents of Jebus said to David, “You cannot invade this place!” But David captured the fortress of Zion (that is, the City of David). 11:6 4  David said, “Whoever attacks 5  the Jebusites first will become commanding general!” 6  So Joab son of Zeruiah attacked 7  first and became commander. 8
