投奔大卫的人

1大卫在洗革拉躲避基士的儿子扫罗的时候,有些勇士来投奔他,帮助他作战。 他们是弓箭手,左右手都能甩石射箭,来自便雅悯支派,与扫罗同族。 他们的首领是亚希以谢,其次是约阿施,都是基比亚人示玛的儿子,还有亚斯玛威的儿子耶薛和毗力,以及比拉迦、亚拿突人耶户, 统领三十位勇士的杰出战士基遍人以实买雅,另有耶利米、雅哈悉、约哈难、基得拉人约撒拔、 伊利乌赛、耶利摩、比亚利雅、示玛利雅、哈律弗人示法提雅、 可拉人以利加拿、耶西亚、亚萨列、约以谢、雅朔班、 基多人耶罗罕的儿子犹拉和西巴第雅。

有些迦得支派的人到旷野的堡垒投奔大卫,他们作战英勇,善用盾和矛,貌似雄狮,快如山鹿。 他们为首的是以薛,其次是俄巴底雅,第三是以利押, 10 第四是弥施玛拿,第五是耶利米, 11 第六是亚太,第七是以利业, 12 第八是约哈难,第九是以利萨巴, 13 第十是耶利米,第十一是末巴奈。 14 他们都是迦得支派的将领,级别最低的统领一百人,最高的统领一千人。 15 一月,约旦河水涨过两岸的时候,他们渡到河对岸,把住在平原的人打得东奔西逃。

16 便雅悯支派和犹大支派中也有人到堡垒投奔大卫, 17 大卫出去迎接他们,说:“如果你们是好心来帮助我的,我就与你们结盟,但如果你们把我这无罪之人出卖给敌人,愿我们祖先的上帝鉴察、惩罚你们。” 18 当时,上帝的灵感动那三十位勇士的首领亚玛撒,他就说:

“大卫啊,我们是你的人!
耶西的儿子啊,我们拥护你!
愿你无比昌盛!
愿帮助你的人也都昌盛!
因为你的上帝帮助你。”

大卫便收留他们,派他们统领他的队伍。

19 从前,大卫和非利士人一同去攻打扫罗的时候,有些玛拿西人来投奔大卫。但大卫及其部下没有帮助非利士人作战,因为非利士人的首领商议后,害怕大卫拿着非利士人的头颅去归顺他的主人扫罗,便让他们走了。 20 大卫回洗革拉的时候,玛拿西支派的千夫长押拿、约撒拔、耶叠、米迦勒、约撒拔、以利户、洗勒太都来投奔他。 21 他们都是将领,作战英勇,帮助大卫抗击匪徒。 22 那时天天有人来投奔大卫,以致形成一支大军,好像上帝的军队。

23 有些全副武装的士兵也到希伯仑投奔大卫,要把扫罗的国权交给大卫,正如耶和华的应许。以下是这些人的数目: 24 从犹大支派来了手持盾牌和长矛的六千八百名战士; 25 从西缅支派来了七千一百名英勇的战士; 26 从利未支派来了四千六百人; 27 亚伦家族中的首领耶何耶大和他的三千七百个随从; 28 年轻、英勇的撒督和他家族的二十二个将领; 29 扫罗的亲族、便雅悯支派中有三千人,大部分便雅悯人仍然效忠扫罗家; 30 来自以法莲支派、在本族中有名望的两万零八百个英勇的战士; 31 来自玛拿西半个支派、被点名选出来拥立大卫做王的一万八千人; 32 来自以萨迦支派、洞悉时事且深明以色列当行之道、统领族人的二百位族长; 33 来自西布伦支派、能征善战、拥有各种兵器、训练有素、忠心耿耿的五万人; 34 来自拿弗他利支派的一千名将领和三万七千名手持盾牌和长矛的随从; 35 来自但支派的两万八千六百名训练有素的人; 36 来自亚设支派的四万名训练有素的战士; 37 来自约旦河东边的吕便支派、迦得支派和玛拿西半个支派的十二万拥有各种兵器的人。

38 以上这些人都是能征善战的勇士,他们诚心诚意地到希伯仑拥立大卫做以色列王,其余的以色列人也都万众一心地要立大卫做王。 39 他们在那里与大卫一起吃喝了三天,因为他们的亲族为他们预备了食物。 40 他们周围的人,远至以萨迦、西布伦和拿弗他利支派的人,都用驴、骆驼、骡子和牛驮来面饼、无花果饼、葡萄干、酒和油,又牵来许多牛和羊,以色列境内充满了欢乐。

1 Chronicles 12

David’s Supporters in Ziklag

1These are the ones who came to David at Ziklag, while he still concealed himself from Saul the son of Kish; they were among the courageous men who helped him in battle. They were armed with bows, and could use the right hand or the left to sling stones and shoot arrows from the bow; they were Saul’s relatives from [the tribe of] Benjamin. The chief was Ahiezer and then Joash, the sons of Shemaah of Gibeah; Jeziel and Pelet the sons of Azmaveth; Beracah, and Jehu of Anathoth, Ishmaiah of Gibeon, a mighty man among the thirty, and [a leader] over them; [a]Jeremiah, Jahaziel, Johanan, Jozabad of Gederah, [b]Eluzai, Jerimoth, Bealiah, Shemariah, Shephatiah the Haruphite, Elkanah, Isshiah, Azarel, Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korahites, and Joelah and Zebadiah the sons of Jeroham of Gedor.

Courageous men from the Gadites came over to David in the stronghold in the wilderness, men trained for war, who could handle shield and spear, whose faces were like the faces of lions, and who were swift as gazelles on the mountains. Ezer was the first, Obadiah the second, Eliab the third, 10 Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth, 11 Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh, 12 Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth, 13 Jeremiah the tenth, Machbannai the eleventh. 14 These from the sons (descendants) of Gad were captains of the army; he who was least was [c]equal to a hundred, and the greatest was equal to a thousand. 15 These are the men who crossed over the Jordan in the first month when it had overflowed all its banks and they put to flight all those in the valleys, east and west.

16 Then some of the [d]men of Benjamin and Judah came to the stronghold to David. 17 David went out to meet them and said to them, “If you have come peacefully to me to help me, my heart shall be united with you; but if you have come to betray me to my adversaries, since there is no violence or wrong in my hands, may the God of our fathers look on [what you are doing] and punish [you].” 18 Then the [Holy] Spirit came on Amasai, who was chief of the thirty, and he said,

“We are yours, O David,
And with you, O son of Jesse!
Peace, peace be to you,
And peace be to him who helps you;
For your God helps you.”

Then David accepted and received them and made them officers of his troops.

19 Some [of the men] of Manasseh also defected to David when he came with the Philistines to go to battle against Saul. But David’s men did not [actually] assist the Philistines, for the lords (governors) of the Philistines after consultation sent him away, saying, “At the cost of our heads he may defect to his master Saul.” 20 As David went to Ziklag, these men defected to him from Manasseh: Adnah, Jozabad, Jediael, Michael, Jozabad, Elihu, and Zillethai, captains of thousands who belonged to Manasseh. 21 They helped David against the band of raiders, for they were all courageous men, and [all seven] became commanders in his army. 22 For day by day men kept coming to David to help him, until there was a great army, like the army of God.

Supporters Gathered at Hebron

23 These are the numbers of the [armed] units equipped for war who came to David at Hebron to turn [over] the kingdom of Saul to him, in accordance with the word of the Lord. 24 Those of the tribe of Judah who carried shield and spear were 6,800, armed for war; 25 of the tribe of Simeon, brave warriors, 7,100; 26 of the tribe of Levi, 4,600. 27 Jehoiada was the leader of [the house of] Aaron, and with him were 3,700, 28 and Zadok, a courageous young man, and twenty-two captains from his father’s house. 29 Of the tribe of Benjamin, the relatives of [King] Saul, 3,000; for until now the majority of them had kept their allegiance to the house of Saul. 30 Of the tribe of Ephraim, 20,800, courageous men, famous in their fathers’ houses. 31 Of the half-tribe of Manasseh, 18,000, who were designated by name to come and make David king. 32 Of the tribe of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do, two hundred chiefs; and all their relatives were at their command; 33 of the tribe of Zebulun, there were 50,000 in military service who could draw up in battle formation with all kinds of weapons of war and helped David, men with [e]an undivided heart. 34 Of the tribe of Naphtali, there were 1,000 captains, and with them 37,000 [of the rank and file armed] with shield and spear. 35 Of the tribe of Dan, 28,600 men who could draw up in battle formation. 36 Of the tribe of Asher, 40,000 men in military service, able to draw up in battle formation. 37 From the other side [east] of the Jordan River, of [the tribes of] Reuben and Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh, 120,000 men, armed with all kinds of weapons of war for the battle.

38 All these, being men of war arrayed in battle formation, came to Hebron with a perfect (committed) heart to make David king over all Israel; and all the rest of Israel were also of one mind to make David king. 39 They were there with David for three days, eating and drinking, for their relatives had prepared for them. 40 Also those who were [living] near them [from] as far as [the tribes of] Issachar, Zebulun, and Naphtali, brought food on donkeys, camels, mules, and oxen, abundant supplies of flour, cakes of figs and raisins, wine, [olive] oil, oxen, and sheep, for there was joy in Israel.
