But when.
1 Cr. 14:8‑9• 8Y oyendo los Filisteos que David había sido ungido por rey sobre todo Israel, subieron todos los Filisteos en busca de David. Y como David lo oyó, salió contra ellos.
9Y vinieron los Filisteos y extendiéronse por el valle de Raphaim.
(1 Cr. 14:8‑9)
;
Sal. 2:1‑5• 1¿Por qué se amotinan las gentes, Y los pueblos piensan vanidad?
2Estarán los reyes de la tierra, Y príncipes consultarán unidos Contra Jehová, y contra su ungido, diciendo:
3Rompamos sus coyundas, Y echemos de nosotros sus cuerdas.
4El que mora en los cielos se reirá; El Señor se burlará de ellos.
5Entonces hablará á ellos en su furor, Y turbarálos con su ira.
(Sal. 2:1‑5)
;
Ap. 11:15‑18• 15Y el séptimo ángel tocó la trompeta, y fueron hechas grandes voces en el cielo, que decían: Los reinos del mundo han venido á ser los reinos de nuestro Señor, y de su Cristo: y reinará para siempre jamás.
16Y los veinticuatro ancianos que estaban sentados delante de Dios en sus sillas, se postraron sobre sus rostros, y adoraron á Dios,
17Diciendo: Te damos gracias, Señor Dios Todopoderoso, que eres y que eras y que has de venir, porque has tomado tu grande potencia, y has reinado.
18Y se han airado las naciones, y tu ira es venida, y el tiempo de los muertos, para que sean juzgados, y para que des el galardón á tus siervos los profetas, y á los santos, y á los que temen tu nombre, á los pequeñitos y á los grandes, y para que destruyas los que destruyen la tierra.
(Ap. 11:15‑18)
the hold.
 David’s wars with the Philistines are subsequent to the taking of Jerusalem, and to the entire subjugation of Israel to David. It is not David, neither is it Christ reigning over the earth, who takes Jerusalem. Christ will descend from heaven for the destruction of Antichrist; but He destroys the enemies of Israel by means of His own people, after having established His throne in Zion (compare Zechariah 9-10). (2 Samuel 5 by J.N. Darby)
 We must not forget―prophecy is very explicit on this subject—that Israel's ancient enemies which have now in part disappeared will reappear in the end times, whether it be to undergo their final judgment, or whether it be to share in the blessings of the millennium together with the people of God. The Philistines are subjugated and their idols are destroyed. (Victories - 2 Sam. 5:10-25 by H.L. Rossier)
