1 Chronicles 11:3-7

David Conquers Jerusalem

11:4 David and the whole Israelite army 5  advanced to Jerusalem (that is, Jebus). 6  (The Jebusites, the land’s original inhabitants, lived there.) 7  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 8  David said, “Whoever attacks 9  the Jebusites first will become commanding general!” 10  So Joab son of Zeruiah attacked 11  first and became commander. 12  11:7 David lived in the fortress; for this reason it is called the City of David.
