RF SA2 23:1 And these are the last words of David,
Says David the son of Jesse,
And the speech of the man raised on high,
And whom Jacob's GOD had approved,
And sweetly to Israel who sings,—
RF SA2 23:2 For to me the LORD'S spirit has spoken,
And this has declared by my tongue,
RF SA2 23:3 And Israel's GOD has informed me, And Israel's hope has revealed,
As a guide to the righteous of men, As a guide to the reverence of GOD;
RF SA2 23:4 Like the light of the morning at sunrise,
As a bright shining dawn without clouds,
With showers for the meadows of earth.
RF SA2 23:5 Tho' my house is not perfect with GOD,
Yet He made a long treaty with me, Extending and sure in all things,
For it perfectly saves and delights.—And will He not cause it to flourish?
RF SA2 23:6 But the Vile He will fling out like thorns,
Which cannot be taken by hand,
RF SA2 23:7 But the man who approaches to them,
Must take staves of iron or wood, And put them to burn in the fire!"
The following are the names of the heroes whom David appointed officers: J'asheb-Bashebeth the Thakhmoni, Chief of the Staff, with Adino, the Atznite, over the eight hundred.
RF SA2 23:9 He was lame of one foot. And after him, Alazar-ben-Dodi-ben-Akhokhi, one of the three generals who were with David when they defied the Philishtim who had drawn out for battle, and the men of Israel had fled.
RF SA2 23:10 He arose and fought the Philishtim until his hand was cramped, and his hand stuck to his sword. But the EVER-LIVING produced a great victory on that day for him, and the forces that stuck behind like his skin.
RF SA2 23:11 And after him Shamah-ben-Aga of Harari. Once when the Philishtim had gone out to raid, and were posted in a part of a field full of lentils, and the force fled before the Philishtim,
RF SA2 23:12 he stood in the open, and re-formed it, and attacked the Philishtim when the EVER-LIVING granted a great victory.
RF SA2 23:13 These three had descended with their troop of thirty, and came in harvest time to David at the Cave of Adulam. And the troops of the Philishtim were encamped in the plain of Rephaim.
RF SA2 23:14 For David at that time was in the cave, and the Philishtim then occupied Bethlehem. David, however, desired and said,
RF SA2 23:15 "Who will get me a drink of water from the well of Bethlehem, that is near the gate?"
RF SA2 23:16 When the three heroes passed through the camp of the Philishtim, and drew water from the well that is near the gate of Bethlehem, and brought it to David,—but he would not drink it, but poured it out to the EVER-LIVING,
RF SA2 23:17 and said, "The EVER-LIVING would punish me if if I did that.—It is the blood of the men who risked their lives, so I will not drink it." These were the actions of these three heroes.
RF SA2 23:18 Abishai, also, the brother of J'oab-ben-Zeruiah, was a great hero, for he raised his spear against three hundred, and defeated them. He was not considered equal to the three.
RF SA2 23:19 However he had honour with the three, and became their commander, but he did not equal the three.
RF SA2 23:20 Beniah also was a brave man of many deeds, of Kabtzal. He defeated the two champions of Moab. He descended and overpowered a lion in a pit on a snowy day.
RF SA2 23:21 He also defeated the Mitzerite officer whom he met. The Egyptian had a spear in his hand, but he ran at him with a club, and pulled the spear from the hands of the Egyptian, and killed him with his own spear.
RF SA2 23:22 Beniah-ben-Jhoiadah performed these deeds, therefore he was stationed with the Three Heroes.
RF SA2 23:23 He was honoured with the Thirty, but became not one of the three. David, however, made him his councilor.
RF SA2 23:24 Asahel, the brother of J'oab was in the Thirty.
RF SA2 23:25 Alkanan-ben-Dodo, the-Bethlehemite.
RF SA2 23:26 Khlitz, the Flatite, Aira-ben-Aksh, the Theqavite;
RF SA2 23:27 Abiazer of Anathoth; Mibuni the Khushite;
RF SA2 23:28 Tzalgon the Akhokhite, Makri the Netofathite;
RF SA2 23:29 Kleb-ben-Banah, the Netofathite; Athi-ben-Ribai of Gibath, sons of Benjamin;
RF SA2 23:30 Beniah the Frathonite; Hadi from the rock of Gash;
RF SA2 23:31 Abi-alban, the Arbathite, Azmoth the Barkhumite;
RF SA2 23:32 Alikabah, the Shalbonite; Jonathan the son of J'ashom;
RF SA2 23:33 Shamah, the Harahite; Ahyam-ben-Sharaal of Hahur;
RF SA2 23:34 Alifalet-ben-Akhasbi, son of the Makathili; Aliam-ben-Akhithofel, the Ghilomite;
RF SA2 23:35 Khatzri, the Karmelite, Fari, the Arabian,
RF SA2 23:36 Igal-ben-Nathan, with Tzoboh, sons of the Gadite;
RF SA2 23:37 Tzeleg, the Amonite; Nakhori, the Barothite, squire to J'oab-ben-Zeruiah;
RF SA2 23:38 Aira, the Itherite; Gareb, the Itherite;
RF SA2 23:39 Uriah the Hitite; in all thirty-seven.
