View In My Bible
1 Forsooth the sons of Israel by their number, the princes of families, the tribunes, and centurions, and prefects, that ministered to the king by their companies of knights, entering in and going out by each month in the year, were sovereigns, each by himself, upon four and twenty thousand. (Now the number of Israelites, that is, the leaders of the families, and the tribunes, and the centurions, and the prefects, who served the king with their companies of horsemen, coming in and going out each month of the year, was twenty-four thousand in each company, or division.) 2 Jashobeam, the son of Zabdiel, was sovereign of the first company in the first month, and under him were four and twenty thousand; (Jashobeam, the son of Zabdiel, was the leader of the first company in the first month, and under him were twenty-four thousand;) 3 of the sons of Pharez, was the prince of all [the] princes in the host, in the first month. (of the sons of Perez, he was the leader of all the leaders in the army, in the first month.) 4 Dodai (the) Ahohite had the company of the second month, and after himself he had another man, Mikloth by name, that governed a part of the host of four and twenty thousand. (Dodai the Ahohite led the second company in the second month, and he had another man, named Mikloth, who helped him govern his division of twenty-four thousand./And Eleazar, the son of Dodai the Ahohite, led the second company in the second month, and he governed his division of twenty-four thousand.) 5 And Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, the priest, was duke of the third company in the third month, and four and twenty thousand were in his parting; (And Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, the priest, was the leader of the third company in the third month, and twenty-four thousand were in his division;) 6 that is Benaiah, the strongest man among (the) thirty, and above (the) thirty; and Ammizabad, his son, was sovereign of his company (after him). (this is Benaiah, the strongest man among The Thirty, and he was a leader of The Thirty; and his son Ammizabad was the leader of his company after him.) 7 In the fourth month, the fourth prince was Asahel, the brother of Joab, and Zebadiah, his son, (was the leader) after him, and four and twenty thousand were in his company. 8 In the fifth month, the fifth prince was Shamhuth (the) Izrahite, and four and twenty thousand were in his company. 9 In the sixth month, the sixth prince was Ira, the son of Ikkesh, (the) Tekoite, and four and twenty thousand were in his company. 10 In the seventh month, the seventh prince was Helez (the) Pelonite, of the sons of Ephraim, [and] four and twenty thousand were in his company. 11 In the eighth month, the eighth prince was Sibbecai (the) Hushathite, of the generation of Zarhites (of the sons of Zareh), and four and twenty thousand were in his company. 12 In the ninth month, the ninth prince was Abiezer (the) Anetothite, of the generation of Benjamin (of the sons of Benjamin), and four and twenty thousand were in his company. 13 In the tenth month, the tenth prince was Maharai, and he was (a) Netophathite, of the generation of Zarhites (of the sons of Zareh), and four and twenty thousand were in his company. 14 In the eleventh month, the eleventh prince was Benaiah (the) Pirathonite, of the sons of Ephraim, and four and twenty thousand were in his company. 15 In the twelfth month, the twelfth prince was Heldai (the) Netophathite, of the generation of Othniel (of the sons of Othniel), and four and twenty thousand were in his company. 16 Forsooth these were the sovereigns of the lineages of Israel (And these were the rulers of the tribes of Israel); duke Eliezer, the son of Zichri, was sovereign to Reubenites; duke Shephatiah, the son of Maachah, was sovereign to Simeonites; 17 Hashabiah, the son of Kemuel, was sovereign to the Levites; Zadok was sovereign to Aaronites; 18 Elihu, the brother of David, was sovereign to the lineage of Judah (Elihu, David's brother, was the ruler of the tribe of Judah); Omri, the son of Michael, was sovereign to Issacharites. 19 Ishmaiah, the son of Obadiah, was sovereign to Zebulunites; Jerimoth, the son of Azriel, was sovereign to Naphtalites; 20 Hoshea, the son of Azaziah, was sovereign to the sons of Ephraim; Joel, the son of Pedaiah, was sovereign to the half lineage of Manasseh (Joel, the son of Pedaiah, was the ruler of the western half of the tribe of Manasseh); 21 and Iddo, the son of Zechariah, was sovereign to the (other) half lineage of Manasseh in Gilead; and Jaasiel, the son of Abner, was sovereign to Benjamin; (and Iddo, the son of Zechariah, was the ruler of the eastern half of the tribe of Manasseh in Gilead; and Jaasiel, the son of Abner, was the ruler of Benjamin;) 22 and Azareel, the son of Jeroham, was sovereign to Dan; these were the princes of the sons of Israel. (and Azareel, the son of Jeroham, was the ruler of Dan; these were the leaders of the Israelites.) 23 And David would not number them that were within twenty years, for the Lord [had] said, that he would multiply Israel as the stars of heaven. (But David did not list those who were under twenty years of age, for the Lord had said that he would multiply Israel like the stars in the heavens.) 24 Joab, the son of Zeruiah, began for to number Israel, but he fulfilled not; for ire of God fell upon Israel for this thing, and therefore the number of them that were numbered, was not told in the books of (the) chronicles of king David. (Joab, the son of Zeruiah, began to count the Israelites, but he did not finish the census; for God's anger fell upon the Israelites for this thing, and so the number of them who were counted, was not told in the books of The Chronicles of King David.) 25 Forsooth Azmaveth, the son of Adiel, was (sovereign) on the treasuries of the king; but Jehonathan, the son of Uzziah, was sovereign over these treasures, that were in cities, and in towns, and in towers. (And Azmaveth, the son of Adiel, was in charge of the king's treasuries; and Jehonathan, the son of Uzziah, was in charge of his treasures, or of his treasuries, that were in the cities, and in the towns, and in the towers.) 26 And Ezri, the son of Chelub, was sovereign upon the work of husbandry, and upon [the] earth-tillers, that tilled the land (who worked the land); 27 and Shimei (the) Ramathite was sovereign upon [the] tillers of (the) vineries; and Zabdi (the) Shiphmite was sovereign upon the wine cellars; 28 for Baalhanan (the) Gederite was (sovereign) [up]on the olive places, and the fig places, that were in the field places; and Joash was sovereign upon the shops, either cellars, of oil; 29 and Shitrai (the) Sharonite was sovereign upon the droves that were pastured in Sharon; and Shaphat, the son of Adlai, was over the oxen in valleys; (and Shitrai the Sharonite was in charge of the herds that were pastured in Sharon; and Shaphat, the son of Adlai, was in charge of the oxen in the valleys;) 30 and Obil of Ishmael was over the camels; and Jehdeiah (the) Meronothite was over the asses; (and Obil of Ishmael was in charge of the camels; and Jehdeiah the Meronothite was in charge of the donkeys;) 31 and Jaziz (the) Hagerite was over the sheep; all these were princes of the chattel of king David. (and Jaziz the Hagerite was in charge of the sheep; all these were the overseers of King David's possessions.) 32 And Jonathan, the brother of David's father, was a counsellor, a mighty man, and prudent, and lettered; he and Jehiel, the son of Hachmoni, were with the sons of the king. 33 Also Ahithophel was a counsellor of the king; and Hushai (the) Archite was a friend of the king. 34 After Ahithophel was Jehoiada, the son of Benaiah, and Abiathar; but Joab was prince of the host of the king (and Joab was the leader of the king's army).
