1 Chronicles 11

GNT 1 All the people of Israel went to David at Hebron and said to 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. GNT 2 In the past, even when Saul was still our king, you led the people of Israel in battle, and the Lord your God promised you that you would lead his people and be their ruler." 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.’ ” GNT 3 So all the leaders of Israel came to King David at Hebron. He made a sacred alliance with them, they anointed him, and he became 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 covenant with them at Hebron before the LORD, and they anointed David king over Israel, as the LORD had promised through Samuel. GNT 4 King David and all the Israelites went and attacked the city of Jerusalem. It was then known as Jebus, and the Jebusites, the original inhabitants of the land, were still living there. NIV 4 David and all the Israelites marched to Jerusalem (that is, Jebus). The Jebusites who lived there GNT 5 The Jebusites told David he would never get inside the city, but David captured their fortress of Zion, and it became known as "David's City." NIV 5 said to David, “You will not get in here.” Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David. GNT 6 David said, "The first man to kill a Jebusite will be commander of the army!" Joab, whose mother was Zeruiah, led the attack and became commander. 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. GNT 7 Because David went to live in the fortress, it came to be called "David's City." NIV 7 David then took up residence in the fortress, and so it was called the City of David. GNT 8 He rebuilt the city, starting at the place where land was filled in on the east side of the hill, and Joab restored the rest of the city. NIV 8 He built up the city around it, from the terraces to the surrounding wall, while Joab restored the rest of the city. GNT 9 David grew stronger and stronger, because the Lord Almighty was with him. NIV 9 And David became more and more powerful, because the LORD Almighty was with him. GNT 10 This is the list of David's famous soldiers. Together with the rest of the people of Israel, they helped him become king, as the Lord had promised, and they kept his kingdom strong. NIV 10 These were the chiefs of David’s mighty warriors—they, together with all Israel, gave his kingship strong support to extend it over the whole land, as the LORD had promised— GNT 11 First was Jashobeam of the clan of Hachmon, the leader of "The Three." He fought with his spear against three hundred men and killed them all in one battle. NIV 11 this is the list of David’s mighty warriors: Jashobeam, a Hakmonite, was chief of the officers ; he raised his spear against three hundred men, whom he killed in one encounter. GNT 12 Next among the famous "Three" was Eleazar son of Dodo, of the clan of Ahoh. NIV 12 Next to him was Eleazar son of Dodai the Ahohite, one of the three mighty warriors. GNT 13 He fought on David's side against the Philistines at the battle of Pas Dammim. He was in a barley field when the Israelites started to run away, 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. GNT 14 so he and his men took a stand in the middle of the field and fought the Philistines. The Lord gave him 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. GNT 15 One day three of the thirty leading soldiers went to a rock where David was staying near Adullam Cave, while a band of Philistines was camping in Rephaim Valley. 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. GNT 16 At that time David was on a fortified hill, and a group of Philistines had occupied Bethlehem. NIV 16 At that time David was in the stronghold, and the Philistine garrison was at Bethlehem. GNT 17 David got homesick and said, "How I wish someone would bring me a drink of 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!” GNT 18 The three famous soldiers forced their way through the Philistine camp, drew some water from the well, and brought it back to David. But he would not 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 to the LORD. GNT 19 and said, "I could never drink this! It would be like drinking the blood of these men who risked their lives!" So he refused to drink it. These were the brave deeds of the three famous soldiers. 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 warriors. GNT 20 Joab's brother Abishai was the leader of "The Famous Thirty." He fought with his spear against three hundred men and killed them, and became famous among "The Thirty." 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. GNT 21 He was the most famous of "The Thirty" and became their leader, but he was not as famous as "The Three." NIV 21 He was doubly honored above the Three and became their commander, even though he was not included among them. GNT 22 Benaiah son of Jehoiada from Kabzeel was a famous soldier; he did many brave deeds, including killing two great Moabite warriors. He once went down into a pit on a snowy day and killed a lion. NIV 22 Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant fighter from Kabzeel, performed great exploits. He struck down Moab’s two mightiest warriors. He also went down into a pit on a snowy day and killed a lion. GNT 23 He also killed an Egyptian, a huge man seven and a half feet tall, who was armed with a gigantic spear. Benaiah attacked him with a club, snatched the spear from the Egyptian's hand, and killed him with it. NIV 23 And he struck down an Egyptian who was five cubits 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. GNT 24 Those were the brave deeds of Benaiah, who was one of "The Thirty." NIV 24 Such were the exploits of Benaiah son of Jehoiada; he too was as famous as the three mighty warriors. GNT 25 He was outstanding among "The Thirty," but not as famous as "The Three." David put him in charge 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. GNT 26 These are the other outstanding soldiers: Asahel, Joab's brother Elhanan son of Dodo from Bethlehem Shammoth from Harod Helez from Pelet Ira son of Ikkesh from Tekoa Abiezer from Anathoth Sibbecai from Hushah Ilai from Ahoh Maharai from Netophah Heled son of Baanah from Netophah Ithai son of Ribai from Gibeah in Benjamin Benaiah from Pirathon Hurai from the valleys near Gaash Abiel from Arbah Azmaveth from Bahurum Eliahba from Shaalbon Hashem from Gizon Jonathan son of Shagee from Harar Ahiam son of Sachar from Harar Eliphal son of Ur Hepher from Mecherah Ahijah from Pelon Hezro from Carmel Naarai son of Ezbai Joel brother of Nathan Mibhar son of Hagri Zelek from Ammon Naharai, Joab's armorbearer, from Beeroth Ira and Gareb from Jattir Uriah the Hittite Zabad son of Ahlai Adina son of Shiza (a leading member of the tribe of Reuben, with his own group of thirty soldiers) Hanan son of Maacah Joshaphat from Mithan Uzzia from Ashterah Shamma and Jeiel, sons of Hotham, from Aroer Jediael and Joha, sons of Shimri, from Tiz Eliel from Mahavah Jeribai and Joshaviah, sons of Elnaam Ithmah from Moab Eliel, Obed, and Jaasiel from Zobah NIV 26 The mighty warriors were: Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan son of Dodo from Bethlehem,
