1 Chronicles 11

NLT 1 Then all Israel gathered before David at Hebron and told him, “We are your own flesh and blood. NIV 1 All Israel came together to David at Hebron and said, "We are your own flesh and blood. NLT 2 In the past, even when Saul was king, you were the one who really led the forces of Israel. And the LORD your God told you, ‘You will be the shepherd of my people Israel. You will be the leader of my people Israel.’” NIV 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.' " NLT 3 So there at Hebron, David made a covenant before the LORD with all the elders of Israel. And they anointed him king of Israel, just as the LORD had promised through Samuel. NIV 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. NLT 4 Then David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (or Jebus, as it used to be called), where the Jebusites, the original inhabitants of the land, were living. NIV 4 David and all the Israelites marched to Jerusalem (that is, Jebus). The Jebusites who lived there NLT 5 The people of Jebus taunted David, saying, “You’ll never get in here!” But David captured the fortress of Zion, which is now called the City of David. NIV 5 said to David, "You will not get in here." Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion, the City of David. NLT 6 David had said to his troops, “Whoever is first to attack the Jebusites will become the commander of my armies!” And Joab, the son of David’s sister Zeruiah, was first to attack, so he became the commander of David’s armies. NIV 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. NLT 7 David made the fortress his home, and that is why it is called the City of David. NIV 7 David then took up residence in the fortress, and so it was called the City of David. NLT 8 He extended the city from the supporting terraces to the surrounding area, while Joab rebuilt the rest of Jerusalem. NIV 8 He built up the city around it, from the supporting terraces to the surrounding wall, while Joab restored the rest of the city. NLT 9 And David became more and more powerful, because the LORD of Heaven’s Armies was with him. NIV 9 And David became more and more powerful, because the LORD Almighty was with him. NLT 10 These are the leaders of David’s mighty warriors. Together with all Israel, they decided to make David their king, just as the LORD had promised concerning Israel. NIV 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-- NLT 11 Here is the record of David’s mightiest warriors: The first was Jashobeam the Hacmonite, who was leader of the Three—the mightiest warriors among David’s men. He once used his spear to kill 300 enemy warriors in a single battle. NIV 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. NLT 12 Next in rank among the Three was Eleazar son of Dodai, a descendant of Ahoah. NIV 12 Next to him was Eleazar son of Dodai the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men. NLT 13 He was with David when the Philistines gathered for battle at Pas-dammim and attacked the Israelites in a field full of barley. The Israelite army fled, NIV 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. NLT 14 but Eleazar and David held their ground in the middle of the field and beat back the Philistines. So the LORD saved them by giving them a great victory. NIV 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. NLT 15 Once when David was at the rock near the cave of Adullam, the Philistine army was camped in the valley of Rephaim. The Three (who were among the Thirty—an elite group among David’s fighting men) went down to meet him there. NIV 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. NLT 16 David was staying in the stronghold at the time, and a Philistine detachment had occupied the town of Bethlehem. NIV 16 At that time David was in the stronghold, and the Philistine garrison was at Bethlehem. NLT 17 David remarked longingly to his men, “Oh, how I would love some of that good water from the well by the gate in Bethlehem.” NIV 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!" NLT 18 So the Three broke through the Philistine lines, drew some water from the well by the gate in Bethlehem, and brought it back to David. But David refused to drink it. Instead, he poured it out as an offering to the LORD . NIV 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. NLT 19 “God forbid that I should drink this!” he exclaimed. “This water is as precious as the blood of these men who risked their lives to bring it to me.” So David did not drink it. These are examples of the exploits of the Three. NIV 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. NLT 20 Abishai, the brother of Joab, was the leader of the Thirty. He once used his spear to kill 300 enemy warriors in a single battle. It was by such feats that he became as famous as the Three. NIV 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. NLT 21 Abishai was the most famous of the Thirty and was their commander, though he was not one of the Three. NIV 21 He was doubly honored above the Three and became their commander, even though he was not included among them. NLT 22 There was also Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant warrior from Kabzeel. He did many heroic deeds, which included killing two champions of Moab. Another time, on a snowy day, he chased a lion down into a pit and killed it. NIV 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. NLT 23 Once, armed only with a club, he killed an Egyptian warrior who was 7  feet tall and who was armed with a spear as thick as a weaver’s beam. Benaiah wrenched the spear from the Egyptian’s hand and killed him with it. NIV 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. NLT 24 Deeds like these made Benaiah as famous as the three mightiest warriors. NIV 24 Such were the exploits of Benaiah son of Jehoiada; he too was as famous as the three mighty men. NLT 25 He was more honored than the other members of the Thirty, though he was not one of the Three. And David made him captain of his bodyguard. NIV 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. NLT 26 David’s mighty warriors also included: Asahel, Joab’s brother; Elhanan son of Dodo from Bethlehem; NIV 26 The mighty men were: Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan son of Dodo from Bethlehem, NLT 27 Shammah from Harod; Helez from Pelon; NIV 27 Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite, NLT 28 Ira son of Ikkesh from Tekoa; Abiezer from Anathoth; NIV 28 Ira son of Ikkesh from Tekoa, Abiezer from Anathoth, NLT 29 Sibbecai from Hushah; Zalmon from Ahoah; NIV 29 Sibbecai the Hushathite, Ilai the Ahohite, NLT 30 Maharai from Netophah; Heled son of Baanah from Netophah; NIV 30 Maharai the Netophathite, Heled son of Baanah the Netophathite, NLT 31 Ithai son of Ribai from Gibeah (in the land of Benjamin); Benaiah from Pirathon; NIV 31 Ithai son of Ribai from Gibeah in Benjamin, Benaiah the Pirathonite, NLT 32 Hurai from near Nahale-gaash ; Abi-albon from Arabah; NIV 32 Hurai from the ravines of Gaash, Abiel the Arbathite, NLT 33 Azmaveth from Bahurim ; Eliahba from Shaalbon; NIV 33 Azmaveth the Baharumite, Eliahba the Shaalbonite, NLT 34 the sons of Jashen from Gizon; Jonathan son of Shagee from Harar; NIV 34 the sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan son of Shagee the Hararite, NLT 35 Ahiam son of Sharar from Harar; Eliphal son of Ur; NIV 35 Ahiam son of Sacar the Hararite, Eliphal son of Ur, NLT 36 Hepher from Mekerah; Ahijah from Pelon; NIV 36 Hepher the Mekerathite, Ahijah the Pelonite, NLT 37 Hezro from Carmel; Paarai son of Ezbai; NIV 37 Hezro the Carmelite, Naarai son of Ezbai, NLT 38 Joel, the brother of Nathan; Mibhar son of Hagri; NIV 38 Joel the brother of Nathan, Mibhar son of Hagri, NLT 39 Zelek from Ammon; Naharai from Beeroth, the armor bearer of Joab son of Zeruiah; NIV 39 Zelek the Ammonite, Naharai the Berothite, the armor-bearer of Joab son of Zeruiah, NLT 40 Ira from Jattir; Gareb from Jattir; NIV 40 Ira the Ithrite, Gareb the Ithrite, NLT 41 Uriah the Hittite; Zabad son of Ahlai; NIV 41 Uriah the Hittite, Zabad son of Ahlai, NLT 42 Adina son of Shiza, the Reubenite leader who had thirty men with him; NIV 42 Adina son of Shiza the Reubenite, who was chief of the Reubenites, and the thirty with him, NLT 43 Hanan son of Maacah; Joshaphat from Mithna; NIV 43 Hanan son of Maacah, Joshaphat the Mithnite, NLT 44 Uzzia from Ashtaroth; Shama and Jeiel, the sons of Hotham, from Aroer; NIV 44 Uzzia the Ashterathite, Shama and Jeiel the sons of Hotham the Aroerite, NLT 45 Jediael son of Shimri; Joha, his brother, from Tiz; NIV 45 Jediael son of Shimri, his brother Joha the Tizite, NLT 46 Eliel from Mahavah; Jeribai and Joshaviah, the sons of Elnaam; Ithmah from Moab; NIV 46 Eliel the Mahavite, Jeribai and Joshaviah the sons of Elnaam, Ithmah the Moabite, NLT 47 Eliel and Obed; Jaasiel from Zobah.
