Conquering the city

Days of King David
(I Chronicles 11 4-6)

 David and all of Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus; the Jebusite, the inhabitants of the land, were there.  The inhabitants of Jebus told David “You shall not enter here…!”  But David captured the Zion Fortress, which is the City of David.  David declared, “Whoever strikes the Jebusite first will become chief and an officer.”  Joab son of Zeruiah was the first to go up, and he became a chief.  David settled in the fortress; therefore they called it City of David.
