His two victories over the Philistines.
1 Chronicles 14:8 And the Philistines hear that David hath been anointed for king over all Israel, and all the Philistines go up to seek David, and David heareth, and goeth out before them. 1 Chronicles 14:9 And the Philistines have come, and rush into the valley of Rephaim, 1 Chronicles 14:10 and David asketh of God, saying, 'Do I go up against the Philistinesand hast Thou given them into my hand?' And Jehovah saith to him, 'Go up, and I have given them into thy hand.' 1 Chronicles 14:11 And they go up into Baal-Perazim, and David smiteth them there, and David saith, 'God hath broken up mine enemies by my hand, like the breaking up of waters;' therefore they have called the name of that place Baal-Perazim. 1 Chronicles 14:12 And they leave there their gods, and David speaketh, and they are burnt with fire. 1 Chronicles 14:13 And the Philistines add again, and rush into the valley, 1 Chronicles 14:14 and David asketh again of God, and God saith to him, 'Do not go up after them, turn round from them, and thou hast come to them from over-against the mulberries; 1 Chronicles 14:15 and it cometh to pass, when thou hearest the sound of the stepping at the heads of the mulberries, then thou goest out into battle, for God hath gone out before thee to smite the camp of the Philistines.' 1 Chronicles 14:16 And David doth as God commanded him, and they smite the camp of the Philistines from Gibeon even unto Gazer; 1 Chronicles 14:17 and the name of David goeth out into all the lands, and Jehovah hath put his fear on all the nations.
