Bible: 2 Sam 5:10-12

5:10 David’s power grew steadily, for the Lord God 1  who commands armies 2  was with him. 3 

5:11 King Hiram of Tyre 4  sent messengers to David, along with cedar logs, carpenters, and stonemasons. They built a palace 5  for David. 5:12 David realized that the Lord had established him as king over Israel and that he had elevated his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel.
