歷代志上 11

大衛做以色列人的王

1以色列人都聚集到希伯崙來見大衛,對他說:「我們是你的骨肉同胞。 從前,即使掃羅做王的時候,率領以色列人出征打仗的仍是你。你的上帝耶和華也曾應許讓你做祂以色列子民的牧者和首領。」 以色列的長老都到希伯崙見大衛王,大衛與他們在耶和華面前立約,他們膏立大衛做以色列的王,這應驗了耶和華藉撒母耳所說的話。 大衛和以色列眾人來到耶路撒冷,即耶布斯。那時耶布斯人住在那裡。 耶布斯人對大衛說:「你攻不進來。」可是,大衛攻取了錫安的堡壘,即後來的大衛城。 大衛說:「誰先攻打耶布斯人,誰就做元帥。」洗魯雅的兒子約押首先進攻,於是就做了元帥。 大衛佔據了堡壘,因此那堡壘就叫大衛城。 大衛又從米羅開始,在四圍修建城牆,其餘的部分由約押修建。 大衛日漸強盛,因為萬軍之耶和華與他同在。

大衛的勇士

10 以下是大衛手下眾勇士的統領,他們和以色列百姓竭力擁護大衛做王,正如耶和華對以色列的應許。 11 大衛的勇士有哈革摩尼人雅朔班,他是三勇士之首,曾在一次交戰中揮矛刺死了三百人。 12 其次是亞合人朵多的兒子以利亞撒,他是三勇士之一。 13 他曾在巴斯·達閔與大衛一起抵抗非利士人。那裡有一塊大麥田,以色列人戰敗逃跑, 14 他們卻堅守陣地,奮勇殺敵。耶和華使以色列人大獲全勝。 15 一次,三十位勇士中有三位到亞杜蘭洞附近的磐石那裡見大衛,當時非利士的軍隊駐紮在利乏音谷。 16 那時大衛留守在堡壘裡,非利士人的駐軍在伯利恆。 17 大衛渴了,說:「真想有人打一些伯利恆城門旁的井水給我喝!」 18 那三位勇士就衝過非利士人的營地,到伯利恆城門旁的井打水,帶回來給大衛。大衛卻不肯喝,他把水澆奠在耶和華面前, 19 說:「我的上帝啊!這三人冒死去打水,這些水就像是他們的血,我決不能喝。」因此,大衛不肯喝。這是三勇士的事蹟。

20 約押的兄弟亞比篩是這三個勇士的統領,他曾揮矛刺死三百人,在三勇士中出了名, 21 最有聲望,因此做了他們的統領,只是不及前三位勇士。

22 甲薛人耶何耶大的兒子比拿雅是位勇士,做過非凡的事。他曾殺死摩押的兩個勇猛戰士,也曾在下雪天跳進坑中殺死一頭獅子, 23 還曾殺死一個兩米多高的埃及巨人。當時埃及人拿著織布機軸般粗的長矛,比拿雅只拿著棍子迎戰,他奪了對方的長矛,用那矛刺死了對方。 24 這是耶何耶大的兒子比拿雅的事蹟,他在這三個勇士中出了名, 25 比那三十個勇士更有聲望,只是不及前三位勇士。大衛派他做護衛長。

26 其他勇士有約押的兄弟亞撒黑、伯利恆人朵多的兒子伊勒哈難、 27 哈律人沙瑪、比倫人希利斯、 28 提哥亞人益吉的兒子以拉、亞拿突人亞比以謝、 29 戶沙人西比該、亞合人以萊、 30 尼陀法人瑪哈萊、尼陀法人巴拿的兒子希立、 31 便雅憫支派基比亞人利拜的兒子以太、比拉頓人比拿雅、 32 迦實溪人戶萊、亞拉巴人亞比、 33 巴路米人押斯瑪弗、沙本人以利雅哈巴、 34 基孫人哈深的眾子、哈拉人沙基的兒子約拿單、 35 哈拉人沙甲的兒子亞希暗、吾珥的兒子以利法勒、 36 米基拉人希弗、比倫人亞希雅、 37 迦密人希斯羅、伊斯拜的兒子拿萊、 38 拿單的兄弟約珥、哈基利的兒子彌伯哈、 39 亞捫人洗勒、為洗魯雅的兒子約押拿兵器的比錄人拿哈萊、 40 以帖人以拉、以帖人迦立、 41 赫人烏利亞、亞萊的兒子撒拔、 42 示撒的兒子亞第拿——呂便支派中率領三十人的首領、 43 瑪迦的兒子哈難、彌特尼人約沙法、 44 亞施他拉人烏西亞、亞羅珥人何坦的兒子沙瑪和耶利、 45 提洗人申利的兒子耶疊和他的兄弟約哈、 46 瑪哈未人以利業、伊利拿安的兒子耶利拜和約沙未雅、摩押人伊特瑪、 47 以利業、俄備得和米瑣巴人雅西業。

Amplified Bible

1 Chronicles 11

David Made King over All Israel

1[a]Then all Israel gathered to David at Hebron, saying, “Behold, we are your bone and your flesh. In times past, even when Saul was king, it was you who led out and brought in Israel; and the Lord your God said to you, ‘You shall shepherd My people Israel, and you shall be prince and leader over My people Israel.’” So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and David made a covenant (solemn agreement) with them there before the Lord; and they anointed him king over Israel, in accordance with the word of the Lord through Samuel.

Jerusalem, Capital City

Then David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (that is Jebus); and the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there. Then the Jebusites said to David, “You shall not come in here.” But David captured the stronghold of Zion (that is, the City of David). Now David said, “Whoever strikes down a Jebusite first shall be chief and commander.” Joab the son of Zeruiah [David’s half sister] went up first, and so he was made chief. Then David lived in the stronghold; so it was called the City of David. He built the city around it, from the Millo (fortification) to the surrounding area; and Joab repaired the rest of the [old Jebusite] city. David became greater and greater, for the Lord of hosts was with him.

David’s Mighty Men

10 Now these are the chiefs of David’s mighty men, who strongly supported him in his kingdom, together with all Israel, to make him king, in accordance with the word of the Lord concerning Israel. 11 This is the list of David’s mighty men: Jashobeam, the son of a Hachmonite, the chief of the thirty [heroes]. He lifted up his spear against three hundred whom he killed at one time.

12 Next to him [in rank] was Eleazar the son of Dodo the Ahohite, who was one of the three mighty men. 13 He was with David at Pasdammim [where David had killed Goliath] and there the Philistines were gathered together for battle, and there was a plot of ground full of barley; and the people [of Israel] fled before the Philistines. 14 But they took their stand in the midst of that plot and defended it, and killed the Philistines; and the Lord rescued them by a great victory.

15 Three of the thirty chief men went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam, while the army of the Philistines was camped in the Valley of Rephaim. 16 David was then in the stronghold, while the garrison of the Philistines was in Bethlehem. 17 David had a craving and said, “Oh that someone would give me a drink of water from the well of Bethlehem, which is next to the gate!” 18 Then the three [mighty men] broke through the camp of the Philistines and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem which was next to the gate, and brought it to David. But David would not drink it; he poured it out to the Lord [as an offering]; 19 and he said, “Far be it from me before my God that I would do this thing! Shall I drink the blood of these men who have put their lives in jeopardy? For they brought it at the risk of their lives.” So he would not drink it. These things the three mighty men did.

20 Abishai the brother of Joab was chief of the [other] [b]three, and he lifted up his spear against three hundred and killed them, and he had a name as well as the three. 21 Of the three in the second [rank] he was the most honored and became their captain; however, he did not attain to the first three [Jashobeam, Eleazar, and Shammah].

22 Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a courageous man of Kabzeel who had done great things, killed the two sons of Ariel of Moab. Also he went down and killed a lion in a pit on a snowy day. 23 He killed an Egyptian also, a man of great stature, five [c]cubits tall. In the Egyptian’s hand was a spear like a weaver’s beam, and Benaiah went down to him with [only] a staff (rod) and grabbed the spear from the Egyptian’s hand and killed him with his own spear. 24 Benaiah the son of Jehoiada did these things, and had a name as well as the three mighty men. 25 He was honored among the thirty, but he did not attain to [the rank of] the [first] three. David appointed him over his bodyguard.

26 Now the mighty men of the armies were: Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan the son of Dodo of Bethlehem, 27 Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite, 28 Ira the son of Ikkesh of Tekoa, Abiezer of Anathoth, 29 Sibbecai the Hushathite, Ilai the Ahohite, 30 Maharai the Netophathite, Heled the son of Baanah the Netophathite, 31 Ithai the son of Ribai of Gibeah of the Benjamites, Benaiah the Pirathonite, 32 Hurai of the brooks of Gaash, Abiel the Arbathite, 33 Azmaveth the Baharumite, Eliahba the Shaalbonite, 34 the sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan the son of Shagee the Hararite, 35 Ahiam the son of Sacar the Hararite, Eliphal the son of Ur, 36 Hepher the Mecherathite, Ahijah the Pelonite, 37 Hezro the Carmelite, Naarai the son of Ezbai, 38 Joel the brother of Nathan, Mibhar the son of Hagri, 39 Zelek the Ammonite, Naharai the Berothite, the armor bearer of Joab the son of Zeruiah [David’s half sister], 40 Ira the Ithrite, Gareb the Ithrite, 41 Uriah the Hittite [Bathsheba’s husband], Zabad the son of Ahlai, 42 Adina the son of Shiza the Reubenite, a chief of the Reubenites, and thirty [heroes] with him, 43 Hanan the son of Maacah, and Joshaphat the Mithnite, 44 Uzzia the Ashterathite, Shama and Jeiel the sons of Hotham the Aroerite, 45 Jediael the son of Shimri, and his brother Joha, the Tizite, 46 Eliel the Mahavite, Jeribai and Joshaviah the sons of Elnaam, Ithmah the Moabite, 47 Eliel and Obed and Jaasiel the Mezobaite.
