1 Chronicles

DAVID king of Israel & Judah.  1Chr.11.1-9 1011bce (Israel) - 2Sm.5.1-10

1 vv1-9: cp 2Sam. 5.1-3, 6-10 THEN ALL ISRAEL ASSEMBLED,at Hebron to wait upon David. 'We are your own flesh and blood', they said. 2'In the past, while Saul was still king, you led the forces of Israel to war, and you brought them home again. And the LORD your God said to you, "You shall be shepherd of my people Israel, you shall be their prince." ' 3All the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron; there David made a covenant with them before the LORD, and they anointed David king over Israel, as the LORD had said through the lips of Samuel.

4Then David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (that is Jebus, where the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, lived). 5The people of Jebus said to David, 'Never shall you come in here'; none the less David did capture the stronghold of Zion, and it is now known as the City of David. 6David said, 'The first man to kill a Jebusite shall become a commander or an officer', and the first man to go up was Joab son of Zeruiah; so he was given the command.

7David took up his residence in the stronghold: that is why they called it the City of David. 8He built the city round it, starting at the Millo and including its neighbourhood, while Joab reconstructed the rest of the city. 9So David steadily grew stronger, for the LORD of Hosts was with him.

David's famous soldiers.  1Chr.11.10-47 - 2Sm.23.8-39

10 vv10-41: cp 2 Sam. 23.8-39 Of David's heroes these were the chief, men who lent their full strength to his government and, with all Israel, joined in making him king; such was the LORD's decree for Israel. 11first came Jashoboam the Hachmonite, chief of the three; he it was who brandished his spear over three hundred, all slain at one time. 12Next to him was Eleazar son of Dodo the Ahohite, one of the heroic three. 13He was with David at Pas-dammim where the Philistines had gathered for battle in a field carrying a good crop of barley; and when the people had fled from the Philistines 14he stood his ground in the field, saved it saved it: or cleared it of the Philistines and defeated them. So the LORD brought about a great victory.

15Three of the thirty chiefs went down to the rock to join David at the cave of Adullam, while the Philistines were encamped in the Vale of Rephaim. 16At that time David was in the stronghold, and a Philistine garrison held Bethlehem. 17One day a longing came over David, and he exclaimed, 'If only I could have a drink of water from the well Or cistern by the gate of Bethlehem!' 18At this the three made their way through the Philistine lines and drew water from the well by the gate of Bethlehem, and brought it to David. But David refused to drink it; he poured it out to the LORD 19and said, 'God forbid that I should do such a thing! Can I drink the blood of these men? They have brought it at the risk of their lives.' So he would not drink it. Such were the exploits of the heroic three.

20Abishai the brother of Joab was chief of the thirty. He once brandished his spear over three hundred dead, and he was famous among the thirty. 21He held higher rank than the rest of the thirty and became their captain, but he did not rival the three. 22Benaiah son of Jehoiada, from Kabzeel, was a hero of many exploits. It was he who smote the two champions of Moab, and who went down into a pit and killed a lion on a snowy day. 23It was he who also killed the Egyptian, a giant seven and a half feet high armed with a spear as big as the beam of a loom; he went to meet him with a club, snatched the spear out of the Egyptian's hand and killed him with his own weapon. 24Such were the exploits of Benaiah son of Jehoiada, famous among the heroic thirty prob. rdg, Heb three. 25He was more famous than the rest of the thirty, but did not rival the three. David appointed him to his household.

26These were his valiant heroes: Asahel the brother of Joab, and Elhanan son of Dodo from Bethlehem; 27Shammoth from Harod prob. rdg, cp 2Sam. 23.25, Heb Haror, and Helez from a place unknown; 28Ira son of Ikkesh from Tekoa, and Abiezer from Anathoth; 29Sibbecai from Hushah, and Ilai the Ahohite, 30Maharai from Netophah, and Heled son of Baanah from Netophah; 31Ithai son of Ribai from Gibeah of Benjamin, and Benaiah from Pirathon; 32Hurai from the ravines of Gaash, and Abiel from Beth-arabah; 33Azmoth from Bahurim, and Eliahba from Shaalbon; 34Hashem the Gizonite, and Jonathan son of Shage the Hararite; 35Ahiam son of Sacar the Hararite, and Eliphal son of Ur; 36Hepher from Mecherah, and Ahijah from a place unknown; 37Hezro from Carmel, and Naarai son of Ezbai; 38Joel the brother of Nathan, and Mibhar the son of Haggeri; 39Zelek the Ammonite, and Naharai from Beeroth, armour-bearer to Joab son of Zeruiah; 40Ira the Ithrite, and Gareb the Ithrite; 41Uriah the Hittite, and Zabad son of Ahlai. 42Adina son of Shiza the Reubenite, a chief of the Reubenites, was over these thirty. 43Also Hanan son of Maacah, and Joshaphat the Mithnite; 44Uzzia from Ashtaroth, Shama and Jeiel the sons of Hotham from Aroer; 45Jediael son of Shimri, and Joha his brother, the Tizite; 46Eliel the Mahavite, and Jeribai and Joshaviah sons of Elnaam, and Ithmah the Moabite; 47Eliel, Obed, and Jasiel, from Zobah from Zobah: prob. rdg, Heb obscure.
