23:1 Now these [be] the last [H314] words [H1697] of David [H1732] . David [H1732] the son [H1121] of Jesse [H3448] said [H5002] , and the man [H1397] [who was] raised up [H6965] on high [H5920] , the anointed [H4899] of the God [H430] of Jacob [H3290] , and the sweet [H5273] psalmist [H2158] of Israel [H3478] , said [H5002] ,

23:2 The Spirit [H7307] of the LORD [H3068] spake [H1696] by me, and his word [H4405] [was] in my tongue [H3956] .

23:3 The God [H430] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] , the Rock [H6697] of Israel [H3478] spake [H1696] to me, He that ruleth [H4910] over men [H120] [must be] just [H6662] , ruling [H4910] in the fear [H3374] of God [H430] .(He: or, Be thou ruler, etc)

23:4 And [he shall be] as the light [H216] of the morning [H1242] , [when] the sun [H8121] riseth [H2224] , [even] a morning [H1242] without [H3808] clouds [H5645] ; [as] the tender grass [H1877] [springing] out of the earth [H776] by clear shining [H5051] after rain [H4306] .

23:5 Although my house [H1004] [be] not so with God [H410] ; yet he hath made [H7760] with me an everlasting [H5769] covenant [H1285] , ordered [H6186] in all [things], and sure [H8104] : for [this is] all my salvation [H3468] , and all [my] desire [H2656] , although he make [it] not to grow [H6779] .

23:6 But [the sons] of Belial [H1100] [shall be] all of them as thorns [H6975] thrust away [H5074] , because they cannot be taken [H3947] with hands [H3027] :

23:7 But the man [H376] [that] shall touch [H5060] them must be fenced [H4390] with iron [H1270] and the staff [H6086] of a spear [H2595] ; and they shall be utterly [H8313] burned [H8313] with fire [H784] in the [same] place [H7675] .(fenced: Heb. filled)

23:8 These [be] the names [H8034] of the mighty men [H1368] whom David [H1732] had: The Tachmonite [H8461] that sat [H3427] in the seat [H7675] [H3429] , chief [H7218] among the captains [H7991] ; the same [was] Adino [H5722] the Eznite [H6112] : [he lift up his spear] against eight [H8083] hundred [H3967] , whom he slew [H2491] at one [H259] time [H6471] .(The Tachmonite: or, Joshebbassebet the Tachmonite, head of the three. whom he: Heb. slain. he lift: See 1.Ch.11.11. whom he: Heb. slain)

23:9 And after [H310] him [was] Eleazar [H499] the son [H1121] of Dodo [H1734] the Ahohite [H266] , [one] of the three [H7969] mighty men [H1368] with David [H1732] , when they defied [H2778] the Philistines [H6430] [that] were there gathered together [H622] to battle [H4421] , and the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] were gone away [H5927] :

23:10 He arose [H6965] , and smote [H5221] the Philistines [H6430] until [H3588] his hand [H3027] was weary [H3021] , and his hand [H3027] clave [H1692] unto the sword [H2719] : and the LORD [H3068] wrought [H6213] a great [H1419] victory [H8668] that day [H3117] ; and the people [H5971] returned [H7725] after [H310] him only to spoil [H6584] .

23:11 And after [H310] him [was] Shammah [H8048] the son [H1121] of Agee [H89] the Hararite [H2043] . And the Philistines [heb6430] were gathered together [H622] into a troop [H2416] , where was a piece [H2513] of ground [H7704] full [H4392] of lentiles [H5742] : and the people [H5971] fled [H5127] from [H6440] the Philistines [H6430] .(into: or, for foraging)

23:12 But he stood [H3320] in the midst [H8432] of the ground [H2513] , and defended [H5337] it, and slew [H5221] the Philistines [H6430] : and the LORD [H3068] wrought [H6213] a great [H1419] victory [H8668] .

23:13 And three [H7969] [H7970] of the thirty [H7970] chief [H7218] went down [H3381] , and came [H935] to David [H1732] in the harvest time [H7105] unto the cave [H4631] of Adullam [H5725] : and the troop [H2416] of the Philistines [H6430] pitched [H2583] in the valley [H6010] of Rephaim [H7497] .(three: or, the three captains over the thirty)

23:14 And David [H1732] [was] then in an hold [H4686] , and the garrison [H4673] of the Philistines [H6430] [was] then [in] Bethlehem [H1035] .

23:15 And David [H1732] longed [H183] , and said [H559] , Oh that one would give me drink [H8248] of the water [H4325] of the well [H953] of Bethlehem [H1035] , which [is] by the gate [H8179] !

23:16 And the three [H7969] mighty men [H1368] brake through [H1234] the host [H4264] of the Philistines [H6430] , and drew [H7579] water [H4325] out of the well [H953] of Bethlehem [H1035] , that [was] by the gate [H8179] , and took [H5375] [it], and brought [H935] [it] to David [H1732] : nevertheless he would [H14] not drink [H8354] thereof, but poured it out [H5258] unto the LORD [H3068] .

23:17 And he said [H559] , Be it far [H2486] from me, O LORD [H3068] , that I should do [H6213] this: [is not this] the blood [H1818] of the men [H582] that went [H1980] in jeopardy of their lives [H5315] ? therefore he would [H14] not drink [H8354] it. These things did [H6213] these three [H7969] mighty men [H1368] .

23:18 And Abishai [H52] , the brother [H251] of Joab [H3097] , the son [H1121] of Zeruiah [H6870] , was chief [H7218] among three [H7992] . And he lifted up [H5782] his spear [H2595] against three [H7969] hundred [H3967] , [and] slew [H2491] [them], and had the name [H8034] among three [H7969] .(and slew them: Heb. slain)

23:19 Was he not most honourable [H3513] of three [H7969] ? therefore he was their captain [H8269] : howbeit he attained [H935] not unto the [first] three [H7969] .

23:20 And Benaiah [H1141] the son [H1121] of Jehoiada [H3077] , the son [H1121] of a valiant [H2428] man [H376] [H381] , of Kabzeel [H6909] , who had done many [H7227] acts [H6467] , he slew [H5221] two [H8147] lionlike men [H739] of Moab [H4124] : he went down [H3381] also and slew [H5221] a lion [H738] in the midst [H8432] of a pit [H953] in time [H3117] of snow [H7950] :(who: Heb. great of acts)(lionlike: Heb. lion of God)

23:21 And he slew [H2026] an Egyptian [H4713] , a goodly [H4758] man [H376] : and the Egyptian [H4713] had a spear [H2595] in his hand [H3027] ; but he went down [H3381] to him with a staff [H7626] , and plucked [H1497] the spear [H2595] out of the Egyptian's [H4713] hand [H3027] , and slew [H5221] him with his own spear [H2595] .(a goodly: Heb. a man of countenance, or, sight: called I.Chr.I.23. a man of great stature)

23:22 These [things] did [H6213] Benaiah [H1141] the son [H1121] of Jehoiada [H3077] , and had the name [H8034] among three [H7969] mighty men [H1368] .

23:23 He was more honourable [H3513] than the thirty [H7970] , but he attained [H935] not to the [first] three [H7969] . And David [H1732] set [H7760] him over his guard [H4928] .(more: or, honourable among the thirty)(guard: or, council: Heb. at his command)
