Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
10 These are the commanders of David's warriors who continued to support him while he was king. Together with all Israel, they made him king, as the LORD had promised Israel. 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 warriors: Jashobeam, a Hacmonite, was commander of the Thirty. He raised his spear against eight hundred, killing them on a single occasion. 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 in command came Eleazar, Dodo's son the Ahohite, who was one of the three warriors. 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. The Philistines were gathered there for battle, where part of a field was full of barley. When the people ran away from the Philistines, 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 he and David stood in the middle of the field, held their ground, and defeated the Philistines. So the LORD achieved a great victory. 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 commanders went down from the rock to David at the fortress of Adullam, while the army of the Philistines camped in the Rephaim Valley. 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 fortress, and a Philistine fort was in Bethlehem. 16 At that time David was in the stronghold, and the Philistine garrison was at Bethlehem.
17 David had a craving and said, "If only someone could give me a drink of water from the well by the gate in 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 warriors broke through the Philistine camp and drew water from the well by the gate in Bethlehem and brought it back to David. But he refused to drink it and poured it out to the LORD. 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 that," he said. "Isn't this the blood of men who risked their lives?" So he refused to drink it. Since they had brought it at the risk of their lives, David refused to drink it. These were the kinds of things the three warriors did. 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, Joab's brother, was chief of the Thirty. He raised his spear against the three hundred men he had slain, but he wasn't considered one of the Three. 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 the most famous of the Thirty. He became their commander, but he wasn't among the Three. 21 He was doubly honored above the Three and became their commander, even though he was not included among them.
22 Benaiah, Jehoiada's son from Kabzeel, was a hero who performed great deeds. He killed two of Moab's leaders, and on a snowy day went down into a pit where he killed a lion. 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 He also killed an Egyptian seven and a half feet tall, who was holding a spear like a weaver's beam. Benaiah went down to him with a club, grabbed the spear from the Egyptian's hand, and killed him with it. 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 These were the exploits of Benaiah, Jehoiada's son; he wasn't considered one of the three warriors. 24 Such were the exploits of Benaiah son of Jehoiada; he too was as famous as the three mighty men.
25 He was famous among the Thirty, but didn't become one of the Three. David placed him in command of his own bodyguard. 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.
