The companies that came to David at Ziklag.
1 ¶ Now these² [are] they that cameºª to² Davidº to Ziklag,º while he yet² kept himself closeºª becauseº² of Saulº the sonº of Kish:º and they² [were] among the mighty men,º helpersºª of the war.º 2 [They were] armedºª with bows,º and could use both the right handºª and the leftºª in [hurling] stonesº and [shooting] arrowsº out of a bow,º [even] of Saul's¹ brethrenº²² of Benjamin.º² 3 The chiefº [was] Ahiezer,º then Joash,º the sonsº of Shemaahº the Gibeathite;º and Jeziel,º and Pelet,º the sonsº of Azmaveth;º and Berachah,º and Jehuº the Antothite,º 4 And Ismaiahº the Gibeonite,º a mighty manº among the thirty,º and over² the thirty;º and Jeremiah,º and Jahaziel,º and Johanan,º and Josabadº the Gederathite,º 5 Eluzai,º and Jerimoth,º and Bealiah,º and Shemariah,º and Shephatiahº the Haruphite,º 6 Elkanah,º and Jesiah,º and Azareel,º and Joezer,º and Jashobeam,º the Korhites,º 7 And Joelah,º and Zebadiah,º the sonsº of Jerohamº of² Gedor.º 8 And of² the Gaditesº there separated¹ª themselves² unto² Davidº into the holdº to the wildernessº menº of might,º [and] men¹² of warº [fit] for the battle,º that could handleºª shieldº and buckler,º whose facesº [were like] the facesº of lions,º and [were] as swiftºª as the roesº upon² the mountains;º 9 Ezerº the first,º Obadiahº the second,º Eliabº the third,º 10 Mishmannahº the fourth,º Jeremiahº the fifth,º 11 Attaiº the sixth,º Elielº the seventh,º 12 Johananº the eighth,º Elzabadº the ninth,º 13 Jeremiahº the tenth,º Machbanaiº the eleventh.ºº 14 These² [were] of the sonsº² of Gad,º captainsº of the host:º oneº of the leastº [was] over an hundred,º and the greatestº over a thousand.º 15 These² [are] they² that² went overºª² Jordanº in the firstº month,º when it² had overflownºª² all² his banks;º¹ª and they put to flightºª² all² [them] of the valleys,º [both] toward the east,º and toward the west.º 16 And there cameºª of² the childrenº of Benjaminº and Judahº to² the holdº unto David.º 17 And Davidº went outºª to meetº them, and answeredºª and saidºª unto them, If² ye be comeºª peaceablyº unto² me to helpºª me, mine heartº shall be² knitº unto² you: but if² [ye be come] to betrayºª me to mine enemies,º seeing [there is] noº wrongº in mine hands,º the Godº of our fathersº lookºª [thereon], and rebukeºª [it]. 18 Then the spiritº came¹ª upon²² Amasai,º [who was] chiefº of the captains,º¹ª [and he said], Thine [are we], David,º and on thy side,² thou sonº of Jesse:º peace,º peaceº [be] unto thee, and peaceº [be] to thine helpers;ºª for² thy Godº helpethºª thee. Then Davidº receivedºª them, and madeºª them captainsº of the band.º 19 And there fellºª [some] of² Manassehº to² David,º when he cameºª with² the Philistinesº against² Saulº to battle:º but they helpedºª them not:² for² the lordsº of the Philistinesº upon advisementº sent¹ª him away,² saying,ºª He will fallºª to² his masterº Saulº to [the jeopardy of] our heads.º 20 As he went¹ª² to² Ziklag,º there fellºª to² him of Manasseh,º² Adnah,º and Jozabad,º and Jediael,º and Michael,º and Jozabad,º and Elihu,º and Zilthai,º captainsº of the thousandsº that² [were] of Manasseh.º 21 And they² helpedºª² Davidº against² the bandº [of the rovers]: for² they [were] all² mighty menº of valour,º and were² captainsº in the host.º 22 For² at [that] timeº dayº by dayº there cameºª to² Davidº to helpºª him, until² [it was] a greatº host,º like the hostº of God.º
