1 H3605 Then all H3478 Israel H6908 gathered H1732 themselves to David H2275 to Hebron, H559 saying, H2009 Behold, H6106 we are your bone H1320 and your flesh.
2 H1571 And moreover H8543 in time H8032 past, H1571 even H7586 when Saul H4428 was king, H3318 you were he that led H935 out and brought H3478 in Israel: H3068 and the LORD H430 your God H559 said H7462 to you, You shall feed H5971 my people H3478 Israel, H5057 and you shall be ruler H5921 over H5971 my people H3478 Israel.
3 H935 Therefore came H3605 all H2205 the elders H3478 of Israel H4428 to the king H2275 to Hebron; H1732 and David H3772 made H1285 a covenant H2275 with them in Hebron H6440 before H3068 the LORD; H4886 and they anointed H1732 David H4428 king H5921 over H3478 Israel, H1697 according to the word H3068 of the LORD H8050 by Samuel.
4 H1732 And David H3605 and all H3478 Israel H3212 went H3389 to Jerusalem, H1958 which H2982 is Jebus; H8033 where H2983 the Jebusites H3427 were, the inhabitants H776 of the land.
5 H3427 And the inhabitants H2982 of Jebus H559 said H1732 to David, H935 You shall not come H1732 here. Nevertheless David H3920 took H4686 the castle H6726 of Zion, H1958 which H5892 is the city H1732 of David.
6 H1732 And David H559 said, H3605 Whoever H5221 smites H2983 the Jebusites H7223 first H7218 shall be chief H8269 and captain. H3097 So Joab H1121 the son H6870 of Zeruiah H5927 went H7223 first H7218 up, and was chief.
7 H1732 And David H3427 dwelled H4679 in the castle; H5921 therefore H3651 H7121 they called H5892 it the city H1732 of David.
8 H1129 And he built H5892 the city H5439 round H5704 about, even H4407 from Millo H5439 round H3097 about: and Joab H2421 repaired H7605 the rest H5892 of the city.
9 H1732 So David H1980 waxed H1980 greater H1419 and greater: H3068 for the LORD H6635 of hosts was with him.
10 H428 These H7218 also are the chief H1368 of the mighty H834 men whom H1732 David H2388 had, who strengthened H4438 themselves with him in his kingdom, H3605 and with all H3478 Israel, H4427 to make him king, H1697 according to the word H3068 of the LORD H5921 concerning H3478 Israel.
11 H428 And this H4557 is the number H1368 of the mighty H834 men whom H3434 David had; Jashobeam, H2453 an Hachmonite, H7218 the chief H7991 of the captains: H5782 he lifted H2595 up his spear H5921 against H7969 three H3967 hundred H2491 slain H259 by him at one H6471 time.
12 H310 And after H499 him was Eleazar H1121 the son H1734 of Dodo, H266 the Ahohite, H1931 who H7969 was one of the three H1368 mightymen.
13 H1732 He was with David H6450 at Pasdammim, H8033 and there H6430 the Philistines H622 were gathered H4421 together to battle, H2513 where was a parcel H7704 of ground H4392 full H8184 of barley; H5971 and the people H5127 fled H6440 from before H6430 the Philistines.
14 H3320 And they set H8432 themselves in the middle H2513 of that parcel, H5337 and delivered H5221 it, and slew H6430 the Philistines; H3068 and the LORD H3467 saved H1419 them by a great H8668 deliverance.
15 H7969 Now three H7970 of the thirty H7218 captains H3381 went H3381 down H6697 to the rock H1732 to David, H413 into H4631 the cave H5725 of Adullam; H4264 and the host H6430 of the Philistines H2583 encamped H6010 in the valley H7497 of Rephaim.
16 H1732 And David H227 was then H4686 in the hold, H6430 and the Philistines’ H5333 garrison H227 was then H1035 at Bethlehem.
17 H1732 And David H183 longed, H559 and said, H8248 Oh that one would give me drink H4325 of the water H953 of the well H1035 of Bethlehem, H8179 that is at the gate!
18 H7969 And the three H1234 broke H1234 through H4264 the host H6430 of the Philistines, H7579 and drew H4325 water H953 out of the well H1035 of Bethlehem, H8179 that was by the gate, H5375 and took H935 it, and brought H1732 it to David: H1732 but David H14 would H8354 not drink H5258 of it, but poured H3068 it out to the LORD.
19 H559 And said, H430 My God H2486 forbid H6213 it me, that I should do H2063 this H8354 thing: shall I drink H1818 the blood H428 of these H582 men H5315 that have put their lives H5315 in jeopardy? for with the jeopardy of their lives H935 they brought H14 it. Therefore he would H8354 not drink H428 it. These H6213 things did H7969 these three H1368 mightiest.
20 H52 And Abishai H251 the brother H3097 of Joab, H7218 he was chief H7969 of the three: H5782 for lifting H2595 up his spear H5921 against H7969 three H3967 hundred, H2490 he slew H1961 them, and had H8034 a name H7969 among the three.
21 H7969 Of the three, H3513 he was more honorable H8147 than the two; H8269 for he was their captain: H935 however, he attained H7969 not to the first three.
22 H1141 Benaiah H1121 the son H3111 of Jehoiada, H1121 the son H2428 of a valiant H376 man H6909 of Kabzeel, H7227 who had done many H6467 acts; H5221 he slew H8147 two H739 lion like H4124 men of Moab: H3381 also he went H3381 down H5221 and slew H738 a lion H953 in a pit H7950 in a snowy H3117 day.
23 H5221 And he slew H4713 an Egyptian, H376 a man H4060 of great stature, H2568 five H520 cubits H4713 high; and in the Egyptian’s H3027 hand H2595 was a spear H707 like a weaver’s H4500 beam; H3381 and he went H3381 down H7626 to him with a staff, H1497 and plucked H2595 the spear H4713 out of the Egyptian’s H3027 hand, H2026 and slew H2595 him with his own spear.
24 H428 These H6213 things did H1141 Benaiah H1121 the son H3111 of Jehoiada, H8034 and had the name H7969 among the three H1368 mightymen.
25 H2009 Behold, H3513 he was honorable H4480 among H7970 the thirty, H935 but attained H7969 not to the first three: H1732 and David H7760 set H5921 him over H4928 his guard.
26 H1368 Also the valiant H2428 men of the armies H6214 were, Asahel H251 the brother H3097 of Joab, H445 Elhanan H1121 the son H1734 of Dodo H1035 of Bethlehem,
