When David arrived in Ziklag, he sent some of the plunder to the elders of Judah, who were his friends, saying, "Here is a present1 for you from the plunder of the LORD's enemies."
He sent it to those who were in Bethel,2 Ramoth3 Negev and Jattir;428
to those in Aroer,5 Siphmoth,6 Eshtemoa729
and Racal; to those in the towns of the Jerahmeelites8 and the Kenites;930
to those in Hormah,10 Bor Ashan,11 Athach
and Hebron;12 and to those in all the other places where David and his men had roamed.
