1 Chronicles 10; 1 Chronicles 11; 1 Chronicles 12; John 6:45-71

1 Now the Philistines fought against Israel, and the men of Israel fled from before the Philistines, and fell down wounded in mount Gelboe. 2 And the Philistines drew near pursuing after Saul, and his sons, and they killed Jonathan, and Abinadab, and Melchisua the sons of Saul. 3 And the battle grew hard against Saul and the archers reached him, and wounded him with arrows. 4 And Saul said to his armourbearer: Draw thy sword, and kill me: lest these uncircumcised come, and mock me. But his armourbearer would not, for he was struck with fear: so Saul took his sword, and fell upon it. 5 And when his armourbearer saw it, to wit, that Saul was dead, he also fell upon his sword and died. 6 So Saul died, and his three sons, and all his house fell together. 7 And when the men of Israel, that dwelt in the plains, saw this, they fled: and Saul and his sons being dead, they forsook their cities, and were scattered up and down: and the Philistines came, and dwelt in them. 8 And the next day the Philistines taking away the spoils of them that were slain, found Saul and his sons lying on mount Gelboe. 9 And when they had stripped him, and out off his head, and taken away his armour, they sent it into their land, to be carried about, and shewn in the temples of the idols and to the people. 10 And his armour they dedicated in the temple of their god, and his head they fastened up in the temple of Dagon. 11 And when the men of Jabes Galaad had heard this, to wit, all that the Philistines had done to Saul, 12 All the valiant men of them arose, and took the bodies of Saul and of his sons, and brought them to Jabes, and buried their bones under the oak that was in Jabes, and they fasted seven days. 13 So Saul died for his iniquities, because he transgressed the commandment of the Lord, which he had commanded, and kept it not: and moreover consulted also a witch, 14 And trusted not in the Lord: therefore he slew him, and transferred his kingdom to David the son of Isai.
1 Then all Israel gathered themselves to David in Hebron, saying: We are thy bone, and thy flesh. 2 Yesterday also, and the day before when Saul was king, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: for the Lord thy God said to thee: Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be ruler over them. 3 So all the ancients of Israel came to the king to Hebron, and David made a covenant with them before the Lord: and they anointed him king over Israel according to the word of the Lord which he spoke in the hand of Samuel. 4 And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus, where the Jebusites were the inhabitants of the land. 5 And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David: Thou shalt not come in here. But David took the castle of Sion, which is the city of David. 6 And he said: Whosoever shall first strike the Jebusites, shall be the head and chief captain. And Joab the son of Sarvia went up first, and was made the general. 7 And David dwelt in the castle, and therefore it was called the city of David, 8 And he built the city round about from Mello all round, and Joab built the rest of the city. 9 And David went on growing and increasing, and the Lord of hosts was with him. 10 These are the chief of the valiant man of David, who helped him to be made king over all Israel, according to the word of the Lord, which he spoke to Israel. 11 And this is the number of the heroes of David: Jesbaam the son of Hachamoni the chief among the thirty: he lifted up his spear against three hundred wounded by him at one time. 12 And after him was Eleazar his uncle’s son the Ahohite, who was one of the three mighties. 13 He was with David in Phesdomim, when the Philistines were gathered to that place to battle: and the field of that country was full of barley, and the people fled from before the Philistines. 14 But these men stood in the midst of the field, and defended it: and they slew the Philistines, and the Lord gave a great deliverance to his people. 15 And three of the thirty captains went down to the rock, wherein David was, to the cave of Odollam, when the Philistines encamped in the valley of Raphaim. 16 And David was in a hold, and the garrison of the Philistines in Bethlehem. 17 And David longed, and said: O that some man would give me water of the cistern of Bethlehem, which is in the gate. 18 And these three broke through the midst of the camp of the Philistines, and drew water out of the cistern of Bethlehem, which was in the gate, and brought it to David to drink: and he would not drink of it, but rather offered it to the Lord, 19 Saying: God forbid that I should do this in the sight of my God, and should drink the blood of these men: for with the danger of their lives they have brought me the water. And therefore he would not drink. These things did the three most valiant. 20 And Abisai the brother of Joab, he was chief of three, and he lifted up his spear against three hundred whom he slew, and he was renowned among the three, 21 And illustrious among the second three, and their captain: but yet he attained not to the first three. 22 Banaias the son of Joiada a most valiant man, of Cabseel, who had done many acts: he slew the two ariels of Moab: and he went down, and killed a lion in the midst of a pit in the time of snow. 23 And he slew an Egyptian, whose stature was of five cubits, and who had a spear like a weaver’s beam: and he went down to him with a staff, and plucked away the spear, that he held in his hand, and slew him with his own spear. 24 These things did Banaias the son of Joiada, who was renowned among the three valiant ones, 25 And the first among the thirty, but yet to the three he attained not: and David made him of his council. 26 Moreover the most valiant men of the army, were Asahel brother of Joab, and Elchanan the son of his uncle of Bethlehem, 27 Sammoth an Arorite, Helles a Phalonite, 28 Ira the son of Acces a Thecuite, Abiezer an Anathothite, 29 Sobbochai a Husathite, Ilai an Ahohite, 30 Maharai a Netophathite, Heled the son of Baana a Netophathite, 31 Ethai the son of Ribai of Gabaath of the sons of Benjamin, Banai a Pharathonite, 32 Hurai of the torrent Gaas, Abiel an Arbathite, Azmoth a Bauramite, Eliaba a Salabonite, 33 The sons of Assem a Gezonite, Jonathan the son of Sage an Ararite, 34 Ahiam the son of Sachar an Ararite, 35 Eliphal the son of Ur, 36 Hepher a Mecherathite, Ahia a Phelonite, 37 Hesro a Carmelite, Naarai the son of Azbai, 38 Joel the brother of Nathan, Mibahar the son of Agarai. 39 Selec an Ammonite, Naharai a Berothite, the armourbearer of Joab the son of Sarvia. 40 Ira a Jethrite, Gareb a Jethrite, 41 Urias a Hethite, Zabad the son of Oholi, 42 Adina the son of Siza a Rubenite the prince of the Rubenites, and thirty with him: 43 Hanan the son of Maacha, and Josaphat a Mathanite, 44 Ozia an Astarothite, Samma, and Jehiel the sons of Hotham an Arorite, 45 Jedihel the son of Zamri, and Joha his brother a Thosaite, 46 Eliel a Mahumite, and Jeribai, and Josaia the sons of Elnaim, and Jethma a Moabite, Eliel, 47 (11:46) and Obed, and Jasiel of Masobia.
1 Now these are they that came to David to Siceleg, while he yet fled from Saul the son of Cis, and they were most valiant and excellent warriors, 2 Bending the bow, and using either hand in hurling stones with slings, and shooting arrows: of the brethren of Saul of Benjamin. 3 The chief was Ahiezer, and Joas, the sons of Samoa of Gabaath, and Jaziel, and Phallet the sons of Azmoth, and Beracha, and Jehu an Anathothite. 4 And Samaias of Gabaon, the stoutest amongst the thirty and over the thirty; Jeremias, and Jeheziel and Johanan, and Jozabad of Gaderoth; 5 And Eluzai, and Jerimuth, and Baalia, and Samaria, and Saphatia the Haruphite; 6 Elcana, and Jesia, and Azareel, and Joezer, and Jesbaam of Carehim: 7 And Joela, and Zabadia the sons of Jeroham of Gedor. 8 From Gaddi also there went over to David, when he lay hid in the wilderness most valiant men, and excellent warriors, holding shield and spear: whose faces were like the faces of a lion, and they were swift like the roebucks on the mountains. 9 Ezer the chief, Obdias the second, Eliab the third, 10 Masmana the fourth, Jeremias the fifth, 11 Ethi the sixth, Eliel the seventh, 12 Johanan the eighth, Elzebad the ninth, 13 Jerenias the tenth, Machbani the eleventh, 14 These were of the sons of Gad, captains of the army: the least of them was captain over a hundred soldiers, and the greatest over a thousand. 15 These are they who passed over the Jordan in the first month, when it is used to flow over its banks: and they put to flight all that dwelt in the valleys both toward the east and toward the west. 16 And there came also of the men of Benjamin, and of Juda to the hold, in which David abode. 17 And David went out to meet them, and said: If you are come peaceably to me to help me, let my heart be joined to you: but if you plot against me for my enemies whereas I have no iniquity in my hands, let the God of our fathers see, and judge. 18 But the spirit came upon Amasai the chief among thirty, and he said: We are thine, O David, and for thee, O son of Isai: peace, peace be to thee, and peace to thy helpers. For thy God helpeth thee. So David received them, and made them captains of the band. 19 And there were some of Manasses that went over to David, when he came with the Philistines against Saul to fight: but he did not fight with them: because the lords of the Philistines taking counsel sent him back, saying: With the danger of our heads he will return to his master Saul. 20 So when he went back to Siceleg, there fled to him of Manasses, Ednas and Jozabad, and Jedihel, and Michael, and Ednas, and Jozabad, and Eliu, and Salathi, captains of thousands in Manasses. 21 These helped David against the rovers: for they were all most valiant men, and were made commanders in the army. 22 Moreover day by day there came some to David to help him till they became a great number, like the army of God. 23 And this is the number of the chiefs of the army who came to David, when he was in Hebron, to transfer to him the kingdom of Saul, according to the word of the Lord. 24 The sons of Juda bearing shield and spear, six thousand eight hundred well appointed to war. 25 Of the sons of Simeon valiant men for war, seven thousand one hundred. 26 Of the sons of Levi, four thousand six hundred. 27 And Joiada prince of the race of Aaron, and with him three thousand seven hundred. 28 Sadoc also a young man of excellent disposition, and the house of his father, twenty-two principal men. 29 And of the sons of Benjamin the brethren of Saul, three thousand: for hitherto a great part of them followed the house of Saul. 30 And of the sons of Ephraim twenty thousand eight hundred, men of great valour renowned in their kindreds. 31 And of the half tribe of Manasses, eighteen thousand, every one by their names, came to make David king. 32 Also of the sons of Issachar men of understanding, that knew all times to order what Israel should do, two hundred principal men: and all the rest of the tribe followed their counsel. 33 And of Zabulon such as went forth to battle, and stood in array well appointed with armour for war, there came fifty thousand to his aid, with no double heart. 34 And of Nephtali, a thousand leaders: and with them seven and thirty thousand, furnished with shield and spear. 35 Of Dan also twenty-eight thousand six hundred prepared for battle. 36 And of Aser forty thousand going forth to fight, and challenging in battle. 37 And on the other side of the Jordan of the sons of Ruben, and of Gad, and of the half of the tribe of Manasses a hundred and twenty thousand, furnished with arms for war. 38 All these men of war well appointed to fight, came with a perfect heart to Hebron, to make David king over all Israel: and all the rest also of Israel, were of one heart to make David king. 39 And they were there with David three days eating and drinking: for their brethren had prepared for them. 40 Moreover they that were near them even as far as Issachar, and Zabulon, and Nephtali, brought loaves on asses, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, to eat: meal, figs, raisins, wine, oil, and oxen, and sheep in abundance, for there was joy in Israel.
45 It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard of the Father and hath learned cometh forth me. 46 Not that any man hath seen the Father: but he who is of God, he hath seen the Father. 47 Amen, amen, I say unto you: He that believeth in me hath everlasting life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers did eat manna in the desert: and are dead. 50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven: that if any man eat of it, he may not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. (6-52) If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, for the life of the world. 52 (6-53) The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this man give us his flesh to eat? 53 (6-54) Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say unto you: except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. 54 (6-55) He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. 55 (6-56) For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. 56 (6-57) He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in me: and I in him. 57 (6-58) As the living Father hath sent me and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, the same also shall live by me. 58 (6-59) This is the bread that came down from heaven. Not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead. He that eateth this bread shall live for ever. 59 (6-60) These things he said, teaching in the synagogue, in Capharnaum. 60 (6-61) Many therefore of his disciples, hearing it, said: This saying is hard; and who can hear it? 61 (6-62) But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at this, said to them: Doth this scandalize you? 62 (6-63) If then you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 63 (6-64) It is the spirit that quickeneth: the flesh profiteth nothing. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. 64 (6-65) But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that did not believe and who he was that would betray him. 65 (6-66) And he said: Therefore did I say to you that no man can come to me, unless it be given him by my Father. 66 (6-67) After this, many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. 67 (6-68) Then Jesus said to the twelve: Will you also go away? 68 (6-69) And Simon Peter answered him: Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 (6-70) And we have believed and have known that thou art the Christ, the Son of God. 70 (6-71) Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve? And one of you is a devil. 71 (6-72) Now he meant Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon: for this same was about to betray him, whereas he was one of the twelve.
