1 H314 Now these are the last H1697 words H1732 of David. H1732 David H1121 the son H3448 of Jesse H5002 [H8803] said, H1397 and the man H6965 [H8717] who was raised H5920 on high, H4899 the anointed H430 of the God H3290 of Jacob, H5273 and the sweet H2158 psalmist H3478 of Israel, H5002 [H8803] said,
2 H7307 The Spirit H3068 of the LORD H1696 [H8765] spoke H4405 by me, and his word H3956 was on my tongue.
3 H430 The God H3478 of Israel H559 [H8804] said, H6697 the Rock H3478 of Israel H1696 [H8765] spoke H4910 [H8802] to me, He that ruleth H120 over men H6662 must be just, H4910 [H8802] ruling 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 [H8799] riseth, 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 is not so with God; H7760 [H8804] yet he hath made H5769 with me an everlasting H1285 covenant, H6186 [H8803] ordered H8104 [H8803] in all things, and sure: H3468 for this is all my salvation, H2656 and all my desire, H6779 [H8686] although he maketh it not to grow.
6 H1100 But the worthless, H6975 all of them shall be as thorns H5074 [H8716] thrust away, H3947 [H8799] because they cannot be taken H3027 with hands:
7 H376 But the man H5060 [H8799] that shall touch H4390 [H8735] them must be armed H1270 with iron H6086 and the staff H2595 of a spear; H8313 [H8800] and they shall be utterly H8313 [H8735] burned H784 with fire H7675 [H8800] in the same place.
8 H8034 These are the names H1368 of the mighty men H1732 whom David H8461 had: The Tachmonite H3427 [H8802] that sat H7675 H3429 [H8800] in the seat, H7218 chief H7991 among the captains; H5722 the same was Adino H6112 the Eznite: H8083 he lifted 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 [H8763] when they defied H6430 the Philistines H622 [H8738] that were there gathered together H4421 to battle, H376 and the men H3478 of Israel H5927 [H8799] had gone away:
10 H6965 [H8804] He arose, H5221 [H8686] and smote H6430 the Philistines H3588 until H3027 his hand H3021 [H8804] was weary, H3027 and his hand H1692 [H8799] clung H2719 to the sword: H3068 and the LORD H6213 [H8799] wrought H1419 a great H8668 victory H3117 that day; H5971 and the people H7725 [H8799] returned H310 after H6584 [H8763] him only to strip the slain.
11 H310 And after H8048 him was Shammah H1121 the son H89 of Agee H2043 the Hararite. H6430 And the Philistines H622 [H8735] were gathered together H2416 into a troop, H2513 where was a piece H7704 of ground H4392 full H5742 of lentiles: H5971 and the people H5127 [H8804] fled H6440 from H6430 the Philistines.
12 H3320 [H8691] But he stood H8432 in the midst H2513 of the ground, H5337 [H8686] and defended H5221 [H8686] it, and slew H6430 the Philistines: H3068 and the LORD H6213 [H8799] wrought H1419 a great H8668 victory.
13 H7969 H7970 [H8675] And three H7970 of the thirty H7218 leaders H3381 [H8799] went down, H935 [H8799] and came H1732 to David H7105 in the harvest time H4631 to the cave H5725 of Adullam: H2416 and the troop H6430 of the Philistines H2583 [H8802] encamped H6010 in the valley H7497 of Rephaim.
14 H1732 And David H4686 was then in a strong hold, H4673 and the garrison H6430 of the Philistines H1035 was then in Bethlehem.
15 H1732 And David H183 [H8691] longed, H559 [H8799] and said, H8248 [H8686] O that one would give me drink 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 [H8799] broke through H4264 the host H6430 of the Philistines, H7579 [H8799] and drew H4325 water H953 out of the well H1035 of Bethlehem, H8179 that was by the gate, H5375 [H8799] and took H935 [H8686] it, and brought H1732 it to David: H14 [H8804] nevertheless he would H8354 [H8800] not drink H5258 [H8686] of it, but poured it out H3068 to the LORD.
17 H559 [H8799] And he said, H2486 Be it far H3068 from me, O LORD, H6213 [H8800] that I should do H1818 this: is not this the blood H582 of the men H1980 [H8802] that went H5315 in jeopardy of their lives? H14 [H8804] therefore he would H8354 [H8800] not drink H6213 [H8804] it. These things did 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 [H8790] And he lifted up H2595 his spear H7969 against three H3967 hundred, H2491 and slew H8034 them, and had the name H7969 among three.
19 H3513 [H8737] Was he not most honourable H7969 of three? H8269 therefore he was their captain: H935 [H8804] yet he attained H7969 not to the first three.
20 H1141 And Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada, H1121 the son H2428 of a valiant H376 H381 [H8677] man, H6909 of Kabzeel, H7227 who had done many H6467 deeds, H5221 [H8689] he slew H8147 two H739 lionlike men H4124 of Moab: H3381 [H8804] he went down H5221 [H8689] also and slew H738 a lion H8432 in the midst H953 of a hole H3117 in time H7950 of snow:
21 H2026 [H8799] And he slew H4713 an Egyptian, H4758 a handsome H376 man: H4713 and the Egyptian H2595 had a spear H3027 in his hand; H3381 [H8799] but he went down H7626 to him with a staff, H1497 [H8799] and plucked H2595 the spear H4713 out of the Egyptian's H3027 hand, H5221 [H8689] and slew H2595 him with his own spear.
22 H6213 [H8804] These things did H1141 Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada, H8034 and had a name H7969 among three H1368 mighty men.
23 H3513 [H8737] He was more honourable H7970 than the thirty, H935 [H8804] but he attained H7969 not to the first three. H1732 And David H7760 [H8799] set 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 sons 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 H3627 [H8802] armourbearer H3097 to Joab H1121 the son H6870 of Zeruiah,
