NRS 2 The spirit of the Lord speaks through me, his word is upon my tongue. CEB 3 Israel's God has spoken, Israel's rock said to me: "Whoever rules rightly over people, whoever rules in the fear of God, NRS 3 The God of Israel has spoken, the Rock of Israel has said to me: One who rules over people justly, ruling in the fear of God, CEB 4 is like the light of sunrise on a morning with no clouds, like the bright gleam after the rain that brings grass from the ground."

He has made an eternal covenant with me, laid out and secure in every detail. Yes, he provides every one of my victories and brings my every desire to pass. NRS 5 Is not my house like this with God?

CEB 6 But despicable people are like thorns, all of them good for nothing, because they can't be carried by hand. NRS 6 But the godless are all like thorns that are thrown away; for they cannot be picked up with the hand; CEB 7 No one can touch them, except with iron bar or the shaft of a spear. They must be burned up with fire right on the spot! NRS 7 to touch them one uses an iron bar or the shaft of a spear. And they are entirely consumed in fire on the spot. CEB 8 These are the names of David's warriors: Jeshbaal from Hachmon was chief of the Three. He raised his spear against eight hundred, killing them on a single occasion.

The Israelites retreated, NRS 9 Next to him among the three warriors was Eleazar son of Dodo son of Ahohi. He was with David when they defied the Philistines who were gathered there for battle.

The troops then returned to Eleazar, but only to plunder the dead. NRS 10 but he stood his ground. He struck down the Philistines until his arm grew weary, though his hand clung to the sword. The Lord brought about a great victory that day. Then the people came back to him—but only to strip the dead. CEB 11 Next in command was Agee's son Shammah, who was from Harar. The Philistines had gathered at Lehi, where there was a plot of land full of lentils. The troops fled from the Philistines, NRS 11 Next to him was Shammah son of Agee, the Hararite. The Philistines gathered together at Lehi, where there was a plot of ground full of lentils; and the army fled from the Philistines.

CEB 16 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. NRS 16 Then the three warriors broke through the camp of the Philistines, drew water from the well of Bethlehem that was by the gate, and brought it to David. But he would not drink of it; he poured it out to the Lord, CEB 17 "The LORD 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.

Therefore he would not drink it. The three warriors did these things. CEB 18 Now Zeruiah's son Abishai, the brother of Joab, was chief of the Thirty.

He also went down and killed a lion in a pit on a day when snow had fallen. CEB 21 He also killed a giant Egyptian who had a spear in his hand. Benaiah went against him armed with a staff. He grabbed the spear out of the Egyptian's hand and killed him with his own spear. NRS 21 And he killed an Egyptian, a handsome man.
