1 H314 Now these be the last H1697 words H1732 of David H1732 . David H1121 the son H3448 of Jesse H5002 said [H8803] H1397 , and the man H6965 who was raised up [H8717] H5920 on high H4899 , the anointed H430 of the God H3290 of Jacob H5273 , and the sweet H2158 psalmist H3478 of Israel H5002 , said [H8803] ,
2 H7307 The Spirit H3068 of the LORD H1696 spake [H8765] H4405 by me, and his word H3956 was in my tongue.
3 H430 The God H3478 of Israel H559 said [H8804] H6697 , the Rock H3478 of Israel H1696 spake [H8765] H4910 to me, He that ruleth [H8802] H120 over men H6662 must be just H4910 , ruling [H8802] H3374 in the fear H430 of God.
4 H216 And he shall be as the light H1242 of the morning H8121 , when the sun H2224 riseth [H8799] H1242 , even a morning H3808 without H5645 clouds H1877 ; as the tender grass H776 springing out of the earth H5051 by clear shining H4306 after rain.
5 H1004 Although my house H410 be not so with God H7760 ; yet he hath made [H8804] H5769 with me an everlasting H1285 covenant H6186 , ordered [H8803] H8104 in all things, and sure [H8803] H3468 : for this is all my salvation H2656 , and all my desire H6779 , although he make it not to grow [H8686] .
6 H1100 But the sons of Belial H6975 shall be all of them as thorns H5074 thrust away [H8716] H3947 , because they cannot be taken [H8799] H3027 with hands:
7 H376 But the man H5060 that shall touch [H8799] H4390 them must be fenced [H8735] H1270 with iron H6086 and the staff H2595 of a spear H8313 ; and they shall be utterly [H8800] H8313 burned [H8735] H784 with fire H7675 in the same place [H8800] .
8 H8034 These be the names H1368 of the mighty men H1732 whom David H8461 had: The Tachmonite H3427 that sat [H8802] H7675 in the seat [H8800] [H8677] H3429 H7218 , chief H7991 among the captains H5722 ; the same was Adino H6112 the Eznite H8083 : he lift up his spear against eight H3967 hundred H2491 , whom he slew H259 at one H6471 time.
9 H310 And after H499 him was Eleazar H1121 the son H1734 of Dodo H266 the Ahohite H7969 , one of the three H1368 mighty men H1732 with David H2778 , when they defied [H8763] H6430 the Philistines H622 that were there gathered together [H8738] H4421 to battle H376 , and the men H3478 of Israel H5927 were gone away [H8799] :
10 H6965 He arose [H8804] H5221 , and smote [H8686] H6430 the Philistines H3588 until H3027 his hand H3021 was weary [H8804] H3027 , and his hand H1692 clave [H8799] H2719 unto the sword H3068 : and the LORD H6213 wrought [H8799] H1419 a great H8668 victory H3117 that day H5971 ; and the people H7725 returned [H8799] H310 after H6584 him only to spoil [H8763] .
11 H310 And after H8048 him was Shammah H1121 the son H89 of Agee H2043 the Hararite H6430 . And the Philistines H622 were gathered together [H8735] H2416 into a troop H2513 , where was a piece H7704 of ground H4392 full H5742 of lentiles H5971 : and the people H5127 fled [H8804] H6440 from H6430 the Philistines.
12 H3320 But he stood [H8691] H8432 in the midst H2513 of the ground H5337 , and defended [H8686] H5221 it, and slew [H8686] H6430 the Philistines H3068 : and the LORD H6213 wrought [H8799] H1419 a great H8668 victory.
13 H7969 And three [H8675] H7970 H7970 of the thirty H7218 chief H3381 went down [H8799] H935 , and came [H8799] H1732 to David H7105 in the harvest time H4631 unto the cave H5725 of Adullam H2416 : and the troop H6430 of the Philistines H2583 pitched [H8802] H6010 in the valley H7497 of Rephaim.
14 H1732 And David H4686 was then in an hold H4673 , and the garrison H6430 of the Philistines H1035 was then in Bethlehem.
15 H1732 And David H183 longed [H8691] H559 , and said [H8799] H8248 , Oh that one would give me drink [H8686] H4325 of the water H953 of the well H1035 of Bethlehem H8179 , which is by the gate!
16 H7969 And the three H1368 mighty men H1234 brake through [H8799] H4264 the host H6430 of the Philistines H7579 , and drew [H8799] H4325 water H953 out of the well H1035 of Bethlehem H8179 , that was by the gate H5375 , and took [H8799] H935 it, and brought [H8686] H1732 it to David H14 : nevertheless he would [H8804] H8354 not drink [H8800] H5258 thereof, but poured it out [H8686] H3068 unto the LORD.
17 H559 And he said [H8799] H2486 , Be it far H3068 from me, O LORD H6213 , that I should do [H8800] H1818 this: is not this the blood H582 of the men H1980 that went [H8802] H5315 in jeopardy of their lives H14 ? therefore he would [H8804] H8354 not drink [H8800] H6213 it. These things did [H8804] H7969 these three H1368 mighty men.
18 H52 And Abishai H251 , the brother H3097 of Joab H1121 , the son H6870 of Zeruiah H7218 , was chief H7992 among three H5782 . And he lifted up [H8790] H2595 his spear H7969 against three H3967 hundred H2491 , and slew H8034 them, and had the name H7969 among three.
19 H3513 Was he not most honourable [H8737] H7969 of three H8269 ? therefore he was their captain H935 : howbeit he attained [H8804] H7969 not unto the first three.
20 H1141 And Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada H1121 , the son H2428 of a valiant H376 man [H8677] H381 H6909 , of Kabzeel H7227 , who had done many H6467 acts H5221 , he slew [H8689] H8147 two H739 lionlike men H4124 of Moab H3381 : he went down [H8804] H5221 also and slew [H8689] H738 a lion H8432 in the midst H953 of a pit H3117 in time H7950 of snow:
21 H2026 And he slew [H8799] H4713 an Egyptian H4758 , a goodly H376 man H4713 : and the Egyptian H2595 had a spear H3027 in his hand H3381 ; but he went down [H8799] H7626 to him with a staff H1497 , and plucked [H8799] H2595 the spear H4713 out of the Egyptian's H3027 hand H5221 , and slew [H8689] H2595 him with his own spear.
22 H6213 These things did [H8804] H1141 Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada H8034 , and had the name H7969 among three H1368 mighty men.
23 H3513 He was more honourable [H8737] H7970 than the thirty H935 , but he attained [H8804] H7969 not to the first three H1732 . And David H7760 set [H8799] H4928 him over his guard.
24 H6214 Asahel H251 the brother H3097 of Joab H7970 was one of the thirty H445 ; Elhanan H1121 the son H1734 of Dodo H1035 of Bethlehem,
29 H2460 Heleb H1121 the son H1196 of Baanah H5200 , a Netophathite H863 , Ittai H1121 the son H7380 of Ribai H1390 out of Gibeah H1121 of the children H1144 of Benjamin,
34 H467 Eliphelet H1121 the son H308 of Ahasbai H1121 , the son H4602 of the Maachathite H463 , Eliam H1121 the son H302 of Ahithophel H1526 the Gilonite,
37 H6768 Zelek H5984 the Ammonite H5171 , Naharai H886 the Beerothite H5375 , armourbearer [H8802] H3627 H3097 to Joab H1121 the son H6870 of Zeruiah,
