And {they had faces like lions} [and were] swift as gazelles upon the mountains. NIV 8 Some Gadites defected to David at his stronghold in the wilderness. They were brave warriors, ready for battle and able to handle the shield and spear. Their faces were the faces of lions, and they were as swift as gazelles in the mountains. LEB 9 Ezer the chief, Obadiah second, Eliab third, NIV 9 Ezer was the chief, Obadiah the second in command, Eliab the third, LEB 10 Mishmannah fourth, Jeremiah fifth, NIV 10 Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth, LEB 11 Attai sixth, Eliel seventh, NIV 11 Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh, LEB 12 Jehonan eighth, Elzabad ninth, NIV 12 Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth, LEB 13 Jeremiah tenth, Macbannai eleventh.

LEB 17 And David went out {to meet them} and answered and said to them, "If you come in peace to me, to help me, {my heart will be joined with you}, but if [you come] to betray me to my adversaries, although [there is] no wrong on my hands, may the God of our fathers see and pass judgment." NIV 17 David went out to meet them and said to them, “If you have come to me in peace to help me, I am ready for you to join me. But if you have come to betray me to my enemies when my hands are free from violence, may the God of our ancestors see it and judge you.” LEB 18 Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, chief of the thirty [who said]: "[We are] yours, O David! And [we are] with you, O son of Jesse! Peace! Peace to you, and peace to those who help you, for your God helps you." So David appointed them as heads of the troops. NIV 18 Then the Spirit came on Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said: “We are yours, David! We are with you, son of Jesse!

NIV 20 When David went to Ziklag, these were the men of Manasseh who defected to him: Adnah, Jozabad, Jediael, Michael, Jozabad, Elihu and Zillethai, leaders of units of a thousand in Manasseh. LEB 21 And they themselves helped David against the troops, for all of them [were] mighty men of strength and were commanders in the army. NIV 21 They helped David against raiding bands, for all of them were brave warriors, and they were commanders in his army. LEB 22 {Day in and day out} they came to David to help him until [there was] a great army, like the army of God. NIV 22 Day after day men came to help David, until he had a great army, like the army of God.

NIV 40 Also, their neighbors from as far away as Issachar, Zebulun and Naphtali came bringing food on donkeys, camels, mules and oxen. There were plentiful supplies of flour, fig cakes, raisin cakes, wine, olive oil, cattle and sheep, for there was joy in Israel.
