And he made him houses, in the city of David, - and prepared a place for the ark of God, and pitched for it a tent.
So they brought in the ark of God, and placed it in the midst of the tent, which David had pitched for it, - and they brought near ascending-sacrifices and peace-offerings, before God.
So David convoked all Israel, unto Jerusalem, - to bring up the ark of Yahweh, unto the place thereof, which he had prepared for it.
And it came to pass, when David had taken up his abode in his house, that David said unto Nathan the prophet, Lo! I, am dwelling in a house of cedars, but, the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, is under curtains.
So then David dwelt in the citadel, and called it, The City of David, - and David built round about, from Millo and inwards.
So David sent unto Tamar, in the house - saying, - Come, I pray thee, to the house of Amnon thy brother, and prepare him enticing food.
And the king said - Let him go round to his own house, and, my face, let him not see. So Absolom went round, unto his own house, and, the face of the king, saw he not.
