And the rest of the people he delivered into the hands of
Abishai his brother
Who was a commander under him, and a very valiant man; and thus, as his enemy had two armies, he divided his into two parts, that he might the better attack them:
that he might put [them] in array against the children of Ammon:
draw them up in a line, place them rank and file to meet the children of Ammon, and give them battle.
