One of David's first acts after becoming king was to secure Jerusalem, which he seized from the Jebusites. He subsequently fixed the royal residence there. Fortifications were added by the king and by Joab, and it was known by the special name of the "city of David." The ark was removed from its obscurity at Kirjath-jearim with marked solemnity and conveyed to Jerusalem.
During the succeeding ten years, the nations bordering oh his kingdom caused David more or less trouble, but during this time he reduced to a state of permant subjection the Philistines, the Moabites, and others.
David was also forced to flee Jerusalem during Absalom's rebellion, but after Absalom's death, he returned to the city to reign once more.
