1 Chronicles 11
David Made King over All Israel1 a Then all Israel gathered to David at Hebron ▼
▼ Lit sayingand said, “Behold, we are your bone and your flesh. 2 “In times past, even when Saul was king, you were the one who led out and brought in Israel; and the Lord your God said to you, ‘ c You shall shepherd My people Israel, and you shall be prince over My people Israel.’” 3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the Lord; and d they anointed David king over Israel e according to the word of the Lord through Samuel.
Jerusalem, Capital City4 Then David and all Israel went to Jerusalem ( f that is, Jebus); and the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there. 5 The inhabitants of Jebus said to David, “You shall not enter here.” Nevertheless David captured the stronghold of Zion (that is, the city of David). 6 Now David had said, “Whoever strikes down a Jebusite first shall be chief and commander.” g Joab the son of Zeruiah went up first, so he became chief. 7 Then David dwelt in the stronghold; therefore it was called the city of David. 8 He ▼
▼ Or fortifiedbuilt the city all around, from the ▼
▼ I.e. citadelMillo even to the surrounding area; and Joab ▼
▼ Lit revivedrepaired the rest of the city. 9 k David became greater and greater, for the Lord of hosts was with him.
David’s Mighty Men10 l Now these are the heads of the mighty men whom David had, who gave him strong support in his kingdom, together with all Israel, to make him king m according to the word of the Lord concerning Israel. 11 These constitute the list of the mighty men whom David had: n Jashobeam, the son of a Hachmonite o the chief of the thirty; he lifted up his spear against three hundred ▼
▼ Lit slain oneswhom he killed at one time. 12 After him was Eleazar the son of q Dodo, the Ahohite, who was ▼
▼ Lit amongone of the three mighty men. 13 He was with David at ▼
▼ In 1 Sam 17:1, EphesdammimPasdammim t when the Philistines were gathered together there to battle, and there was a plot of ground full of barley; and the people fled before the Philistines. 14 They took their stand in the midst of the plot and defended it, and struck down the Philistines; and the Lord saved them by a great ▼
▼ Or salvationvictory. 15 Now three of the thirty chief men went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam, while v the army of the Philistines was camping in the valley of Rephaim. 16 David was then in the stronghold, while w the garrison of the Philistines was then in Bethlehem. 17 David had a craving and said, “Oh that someone would give me water to drink from the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate!” 18 So the three broke through the camp of the Philistines and drew water from the well of Bethlehem which was by the gate, and took it and brought it to David; nevertheless David would not drink it, but poured it out to the Lord; 19 and he said, “Be it far from me before my God that I should do this. Shall I drink the blood of these men who went ▼
▼ Lit with their soulsat the risk of their lives? For at the risk of their lives they brought it.” Therefore he would not drink it. These things the three mighty men did. 20 As for ▼
▼ In 2 Sam 23:18, AbishaiAbshai the brother of Joab, he was chief of the ▼
▼ So Syriac; M.T. threethirty, and he swung his spear against three hundred ▼
▼ Lit slain onesand killed them; and he had a name as well as the ▼
▼ So Syriac; M.T. threethirty. 21 Of the three in the second rank he was the most honored and became their commander; however, he did not attain to the first three. 22 ac Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, mighty in deeds, struck down the ▼
▼ Or two lion-like heroes oftwo sons of Ariel of Moab. He also went down and ▼ killed a lion inside a pit on a snowy day. 23 He ▼ killed an Egyptian, a man of great stature five ▼
▼ I.e. One cubit equals approx 18 in.cubits tall. Now in the Egyptian’s hand was ah a spear like a weaver’s beam, but he went down to him with a club and snatched the spear from the Egyptian’s hand and ▼ killed him with his own spear. 24 These things Benaiah the son of Jehoiada did, and had a name as well as the three mighty men. 25 Behold, he was honored among the thirty, but he did not attain to the three; and David appointed him over his guard. 26 Now the mighty men of the armies were Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan the son of Dodo of Bethlehem, 27 ▼
