1 Chronicles 10

1
Now the Philistines fought against Israel; the Israelites fled before them, and many fell slain on Mount Gilboa.
2
The Philistines pressed hard after Saul and his sons, and they killed his sons Jonathan, Abinadab and Malki-Shua.
3
The fighting grew fierce around Saul, and when the archers overtook him, they wounded him.
4
Saul said to his armor-bearer, "Draw your sword and run me through, or these uncircumcised fellows will come and abuse me." But his armor-bearer was terrified and would not do it; so Saul took his own sword and fell on it.
5
When the armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died.
6
So Saul and his three sons died, and all his house died together.
7
When all the Israelites in the valley saw that the army had fled and that Saul and his sons had died, they abandoned their towns and fled. And the Philistines came and occupied them.
8
The next day, when the Philistines came to strip the dead, they found Saul and his sons fallen on Mount Gilboa.
9
They stripped him and took his head and his armor, and sent messengers throughout the land of the Philistines to proclaim the news among their idols and their people.
10
They put his armor in the temple of their gods and hung up his head in the temple of Dagon.
11
When all the inhabitants of Jabesh Gilead heard of everything the Philistines had done to Saul,
12
all their valiant men went and took the bodies of Saul and his sons and brought them to Jabesh. Then they buried their bones under the great tree in Jabesh, and they fasted seven days.
13
Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance,
14
and did not inquire of the LORD. So the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse.


1 Chronicles 11

1
All Israel came together to David at Hebron and said, "We are your own flesh and blood.
2
In the past, even while Saul was king, you were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. And the LORD your God said to you, `You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler.'"
3
When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, he made a compact with them at Hebron before the LORD, and they anointed David king over Israel, as the LORD had promised through Samuel.
4
David and all the Israelites marched to Jerusalem (that is, Jebus). The Jebusites who lived there
5
said to David, "You will not get in here." Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion, the City of David.
6
David had said, "Whoever leads the attack on the Jebusites will become commander-in-chief." Joab son of Zeruiah went up first, and so he received the command.
7
David then took up residence in the fortress, and so it was called the City of David.
8
He built up the city around it, from the supporting terraces to the surrounding wall, while Joab restored the rest of the city.
9
And David became more and more powerful, because the LORD Almighty was with him.
10
These were the chiefs of David's mighty men--they, together with all Israel, gave his kingship strong support to extend it over the whole land, as the LORD had promised--
11
this is the list of David's mighty men: Jashobeam, a Hacmonite, was chief of the officers ; he raised his spear against three hundred men, whom he killed in one encounter.
12
Next to him was Eleazar son of Dodai the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men.
13
He was with David at Pas Dammim when the Philistines gathered there for battle. At a place where there was a field full of barley, the troops fled from the Philistines.
14
But they took their stand in the middle of the field. They defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the LORD brought about a great victory.
15
Three of the thirty chiefs came down to David to the rock at the cave of Adullam, while a band of Philistines was encamped in the Valley of Rephaim.
16
At that time David was in the stronghold, and the Philistine garrison was at Bethlehem.
17
David longed for water and said, "Oh, that someone would get me a drink of water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem!"
18
So the Three broke through the Philistine lines, drew water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem and carried it back to David. But he refused to drink it; instead, he poured it out before the LORD.
19
"God forbid that I should do this!" he said. "Should I drink the blood of these men who went at the risk of their lives?" Because they risked their lives to bring it back, David would not drink it. Such were the exploits of the three mighty men.
20
Abishai the brother of Joab was chief of the Three. He raised his spear against three hundred men, whom he killed, and so he became as famous as the Three.
21
He was doubly honored above the Three and became their commander, even though he was not included among them.
22
Benaiah son of Jehoiada was a valiant fighter from Kabzeel, who performed great exploits. He struck down two of Moab's best men. He also went down into a pit on a snowy day and killed a lion.
23
And he struck down an Egyptian who was seven and a half feet tall. Although the Egyptian had a spear like a weaver's rod in his hand, Benaiah went against him with a club. He snatched the spear from the Egyptian's hand and killed him with his own spear.
24
Such were the exploits of Benaiah son of Jehoiada; he too was as famous as the three mighty men.
25
He was held in greater honor than any of the Thirty, but he was not included among the Three. And David put him in charge of his bodyguard.
26
The mighty men were: Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan son of Dodo from Bethlehem,
27
Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite,
28
Ira son of Ikkesh from Tekoa, Abiezer from Anathoth,
29
Sibbecai the Hushathite, Ilai the Ahohite,
30
Maharai the Netophathite, Heled son of Baanah the Netophathite,
31
Ithai son of Ribai from Gibeah in Benjamin, Benaiah the Pirathonite,
32
Hurai from the ravines of Gaash, Abiel the Arbathite,
33
Azmaveth the Baharumite, Eliahba the Shaalbonite,
34
the sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan son of Shagee the Hararite,
35
Ahiam son of Sacar the Hararite, Eliphal son of Ur,
36
Hepher the Mekerathite, Ahijah the Pelonite,
37
Hezro the Carmelite, Naarai son of Ezbai,
38
Joel the brother of Nathan, Mibhar son of Hagri,
39
Zelek the Ammonite, Naharai the Berothite, the armor-bearer of Joab son of Zeruiah,
40
Ira the Ithrite, Gareb the Ithrite,
41
Uriah the Hittite, Zabad son of Ahlai,
42
Adina son of Shiza the Reubenite, who was chief of the Reubenites, and the thirty with him,
43
Hanan son of Maacah, Joshaphat the Mithnite,
44
Uzzia the Ashterathite, Shama and Jeiel the sons of Hotham the Aroerite,
45
Jediael son of Shimri, his brother Joha the Tizite,
46
Eliel the Mahavite, Jeribai and Joshaviah the sons of Elnaam, Ithmah the Moabite,
47
Eliel, Obed and Jaasiel the Mezobaite.


1 Chronicles 12

1
These were the men who came to David at Ziklag, while he was banished from the presence of Saul son of Kish (they were among the warriors who helped him in battle;
2
they were armed with bows and were able to shoot arrows or to sling stones right-handed or left-handed; they were kinsmen of Saul from the tribe of Benjamin):
3
Ahiezer their chief and Joash the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; Jeziel and Pelet the sons of Azmaveth; Beracah, Jehu the Anathothite,
4
and Ishmaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the Thirty, who was a leader of the Thirty; Jeremiah, Jahaziel, Johanan, Jozabad the Gederathite,
5
Eluzai, Jerimoth, Bealiah, Shemariah and Shephatiah the Haruphite;
6
Elkanah, Isshiah, Azarel, Joezer and Jashobeam the Korahites;
7
and Joelah and Zebadiah the sons of Jeroham from Gedor.
8
Some Gadites defected to David at his stronghold in the desert. They were brave warriors, ready for battle and able to handle the shield and spear. Their faces were the faces of lions, and they were as swift as gazelles in the mountains.
9
Ezer was the chief, Obadiah the second in command, Eliab the third,
10
Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth,
11
Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh,
12
Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth,
13
Jeremiah the tenth and Macbannai the eleventh.
14
These Gadites were army commanders; the least was a match for a hundred, and the greatest for a thousand.
15
It was they who crossed the Jordan in the first month when it was overflowing all its banks, and they put to flight everyone living in the valleys, to the east and to the west.
16
Other Benjamites and some men from Judah also came to David in his stronghold.
17
David went out to meet them and said to them, "If you have come to me in peace, to help me, I am ready to have you unite with me. But if you have come to betray me to my enemies when my hands are free from violence, may the God of our fathers see it and judge you."
18
Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said: "We are yours, O David! We are with you, O son of Jesse! Success, success to you, and success to those who help you, for your God will help you." So David received them and made them leaders of his raiding bands.
19
Some of the men of Manasseh defected to David when he went with the Philistines to fight against Saul. (He and his men did not help the Philistines because, after consultation, their rulers sent him away. They said, "It will cost us our heads if he deserts to his master Saul.")
20
When David went to Ziklag, these were the men of Manasseh who defected to him: Adnah, Jozabad, Jediael, Michael, Jozabad, Elihu and Zillethai, leaders of units of a thousand in Manasseh.
21
They helped David against raiding bands, for all of them were brave warriors, and they were commanders in his army.
22
Day after day men came to help David, until he had a great army, like the army of God.
23
These are the numbers of the men armed for battle who came to David at Hebron to turn Saul's kingdom over to him, as the LORD had said:
24
men of Judah, carrying shield and spear--6,800 armed for battle;
25
men of Simeon, warriors ready for battle--7,100;
26
men of Levi--4,600,
27
including Jehoiada, leader of the family of Aaron, with 3,700 men,
28
and Zadok, a brave young warrior, with 22 officers from his family;
29
men of Benjamin, Saul's kinsmen--3,000, most of whom had remained loyal to Saul's house until then;
30
men of Ephraim, brave warriors, famous in their own clans--20,800;
31
men of half the tribe of Manasseh, designated by name to come and make David king--18,000;
32
men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do--200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command;
33
men of Zebulun, experienced soldiers prepared for battle with every type of weapon, to help David with undivided loyalty--50,000;
34
men of Naphtali--1,000 officers, together with 37,000 men carrying shields and spears;
35
men of Dan, ready for battle--28,600;
36
men of Asher, experienced soldiers prepared for battle--40,000;
37
and from east of the Jordan, men of Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh, armed with every type of weapon--120,000.
38
All these were fighting men who volunteered to serve in the ranks. They came to Hebron fully determined to make David king over all Israel. All the rest of the Israelites were also of one mind to make David king.
39
The men spent three days there with David, eating and drinking, for their families had supplied provisions for them.
40
Also, their neighbors from as far away as Issachar, Zebulun and Naphtali came bringing food on donkeys, camels, mules and oxen. There were plentiful supplies of flour, fig cakes, raisin cakes, wine, oil, cattle and sheep, for there was joy in Israel.


1 Chronicles 13

1
David conferred with each of his officers, the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds.
2
He then said to the whole assembly of Israel, "If it seems good to you and if it is the will of the LORD our God, let us send word far and wide to the rest of our brothers throughout the territories of Israel, and also to the priests and Levites who are with them in their towns and pasturelands, to come and join us.
3
Let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we did not inquire of it during the reign of Saul."
4
The whole assembly agreed to do this, because it seemed right to all the people.
5
So David assembled all the Israelites, from the Shihor River in Egypt to Lebo Hamath, to bring the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim.
6
David and all the Israelites with him went to Baalah of Judah (Kiriath Jearim) to bring up from there the ark of God the LORD, who is enthroned between the cherubim--the ark that is called by the Name.
7
They moved the ark of God from Abinadab's house on a new cart, with Uzzah and Ahio guiding it.
8
David and all the Israelites were celebrating with all their might before God, with songs and with harps, lyres, tambourines, cymbals and trumpets.
9
When they came to the threshing floor of Kidon, Uzzah reached out his hand to steady the ark, because the oxen stumbled.
10
The LORD's anger burned against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he had put his hand on the ark. So he died there before God.
11
Then David was angry because the LORD's wrath had broken out against Uzzah, and to this day that place is called Perez Uzzah.
12
David was afraid of God that day and asked, "How can I ever bring the ark of God to me?"
13
He did not take the ark to be with him in the City of David. Instead, he took it aside to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite.
14
The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the LORD blessed his household and everything he had.


1 Chronicles 14

1
Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar logs, stonemasons and carpenters to build a palace for him.
2
And David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel and that his kingdom had been highly exalted for the sake of his people Israel.
3
In Jerusalem David took more wives and became the father of more sons and daughters.
4
These are the names of the children born to him there: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon,
5
Ibhar, Elishua, Elpelet,
6
Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia,
7
Elishama, Beeliada and Eliphelet.
8
When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, they went up in full force to search for him, but David heard about it and went out to meet them.
9
Now the Philistines had come and raided the Valley of Rephaim;
10
so David inquired of God: "Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?" The LORD answered him, "Go, I will hand them over to you."
11
So David and his men went up to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, "As waters break out, God has broken out against my enemies by my hand." So that place was called Baal Perazim.
12
The Philistines had abandoned their gods there, and David gave orders to burn them in the fire.
13
Once more the Philistines raided the valley;
14
so David inquired of God again, and God answered him, "Do not go straight up, but circle around them and attack them in front of the balsam trees.
15
As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, move out to battle, because that will mean God has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army."
16
So David did as God commanded him, and they struck down the Philistine army, all the way from Gibeon to Gezer.
17
So David's fame spread throughout every land, and the LORD made all the nations fear him.
