When the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines went up to seek out David; and when David heard of it, he went down to the stronghold. (2 Samuel 5:17)

Now the Philistines came and spread themselves out in the valley of Rephaim. (2 Samuel 5:18)

Then David inquired of the LORD, saying, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You give them into my hand?" And the LORD said to David, "Go up, for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand." (2 Samuel 5:19)
