012:001
Now these are they that came to David to Ziklag, while he yet kept himself close because of Saul the son of Kish: and they were among the mighty men, helpers of the war.

012:002
They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand and the left in hurling stones and shooting arrows out of a bow, even of Saul's brethren of Benjamin.

012:003
The chief was Ahiezer, then Joash, the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; and Jeziel, and Pelet, the sons of Azmaveth; and Berachah, and Jehu the Antothite.

012:004
And Ismaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the thirty, and over the thirty; and Jeremiah, and Jahaziel, and Johanan, and Josabad the Gederathite,

012:005
Eluzai, and Jerimoth, and Bealiah, and Shemariah, and Shephatiah the Haruphite,

012:006
Elkanah, and Jesiah, and Azareel, and Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korhites,

012:007
And Joelah, and Zebadiah, the sons of Jeroham of Gedor.

012:008
And of the Gadites there separated themselves unto David into the hold to the wilderness men of might, and men of war fit for the battle, that could handle shield and buckler, whose faces were like the faces of lions, and were as swift as the roes upon the mountains;

012:009
Ezer the first, Obadiah the second, Eliab the third,

012:010
Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth,

012:011
Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh,

012:012
Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth,

012:013
Jeremiah the tenth, Machbanai the eleventh.

012:014
These were of the sons of Gad, captains of the host: one of the least was over an hundred, and the greatest over a thousand.

012:015
These are they that went over Jordan in the first month, when it had overflown all his banks; and they put to flight all them of the valleys, both toward the east, and toward the west.

012:016
And there came of the children of Benjamin and Judah to the hold unto David.

012:017
And David went out to meet them, and answered and said unto them, If ye be come peaceably unto me to help me, mine heart shall be knit unto you: but if ye be come to betray me to mine enemies, seeing there is no wrong in mine hands, the God of our fathers look thereon, and rebuke it.

012:018
Then the spirit came upon Amasai, who was chief of the captains, and he said, Thine are we, David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse: peace, peace be unto thee, and peace be to thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. Then David received them, and made them captains of the band.

012:019
And there fell some of Manasseh to David, when he came with the Philistines against Saul to battle: but they helped them not: for the lords of the Philistines upon advisement sent him away, saying, He will fall to his master Saul to the jeopardy of our heads.

012:020
As he went to Ziklag, there fell to him of Manasseh, Adnah, and Jozabad, and Jediael, and Michael, and Jozabad, and Elihu, and Zilthai, captains of the thousands that were of Manasseh.

012:021
And they helped David against the band of the rovers: for they were all mighty men of valor, and were captains in the host.

012:022
For at that time day by day there came to David to help him, until it was a great host, like the host of God.

012:023
And these are the numbers of the bands that were ready armed to the war, and came to David to Hebron, to turn the kingdom of Saul to him, according to the word of the LORD.

012:024

012:027
And Jehoiada was the leader of the Aaronites, and with him were three thousand and seven hundred;

012:028
And Zadok, a young man mighty of valor, and of his father's house twenty and two captains.

012:029
And of the children of Benjamin, the kindred of Saul, three thousand: for hitherto the greatest part of them had kept the ward of the house of Saul.

012:030
And of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand and eight hundred, mighty men of valor, famous throughout the house of their fathers.

012:031
And of the half tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, which were expressed by name, to come and make David king.

012:032
And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.

012:033
Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank: they were not of double heart.

012:034
And of Naphtali a thousand captains, and with them with shield and spear thirty and seven thousand.

012:035
And of the Danites expert in war twenty and eight thousand and six hundred.

012:036
And of Asher, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, forty thousand.

012:037
And on the other side of Jordan, of the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and of the half tribe of Manasseh, with all manner of instruments of war for the battle, an hundred and twenty thousand.

012:038
All these men of war, that could keep rank, 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.

012:039
And there they were with David three days, eating and drinking: for their brethren had prepared for them.

012:040
Moreover they that were nigh them, even unto Issachar and Zebulun and Naphtali, brought bread on asses, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, and meat, meal, cakes of figs, and bunches of raisins, and wine, and oil, and oxen, and sheep abundantly: for there was joy in Israel.
