2 Samuel 5:17-21

Philistine Attack Repulsed

17 When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over Israel, all the Philistines went up in search of David; but David heard about it and went down to the stronghold. 18Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the valley of Rephaim. 19David inquired of the Lord, ‘Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will you give them into my hand?’ The Lord said to David, ‘Go up; for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand.’ 20So David came to Baal-perazim, and David defeated them there. He said, ‘The Lord has burst forth against* my enemies before me, like a bursting flood.’ Therefore that place is called Baal-perazim.* 21The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them away.
