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。

1 Chronicles 11

David becomes king over Israel

1All Israel came together to David at Hebron and said, ‘We are your own flesh and blood. In the past, even while Saul was king, you were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. And the Lord your God said to you, “You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler.”’

When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, he made a covenant with them at Hebron before the Lord, and they anointed David king over Israel, as the Lord had promised through Samuel.

David conquers Jerusalem

David and all the Israelites marched to Jerusalem (that is, Jebus). The Jebusites who lived there said to David, ‘You will not get in here.’ Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion – which is the City of David.

David had said, ‘Whoever leads the attack on the Jebusites will become commander-in-chief.’ Joab son of Zeruiah went up first, and so he received the command.

David then took up residence in the fortress, and so it was called the City of David. He built up the city around it, from the terraces[a] to the surrounding wall, while Joab restored the rest of the city. And David became more and more powerful, because the Lord Almighty was with him.

David’s mighty warriors

10 These were the chiefs of David’s mighty warriors – they, together with all Israel, gave his kingship strong support to extend it over the whole land, as the Lord had promised – 11 this is the list of David’s mighty warriors:

Jashobeam,[b] a Hakmonite, was chief of the officers;[c] he raised his spear against three hundred men, whom he killed in one encounter.

12 Next to him was Eleazar son of Dodai the Ahohite, one of the three mighty warriors. 13 He was with David at Pas Dammim when the Philistines gathered there for battle. At a place where there was a field full of barley, the troops fled from the Philistines. 14 But they took their stand in the middle of the field. They defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the Lord brought about a great victory.

15 Three of the thirty chiefs came down to David to the rock at the cave of Adullam, while a band of Philistines was encamped in the Valley of Rephaim. 16 At that time David was in the stronghold, and the Philistine garrison was at Bethlehem. 17 David longed for water and said, ‘Oh, that someone would get me a drink of water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem!’ 18 So the Three broke through the Philistine lines, drew water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem and carried it back to David. But he refused to drink it; instead, he poured it out to the Lord. 19 ‘God forbid that I should do this!’ he said. ‘Should I drink the blood of these men who went at the risk of their lives?’ Because they risked their lives to bring it back, David would not drink it.

Such were the exploits of the three mighty warriors.

20 Abishai the brother of Joab was chief of the Three. He raised his spear against three hundred men, whom he killed, and so he became as famous as the Three. 21 He was doubly honoured above the Three and became their commander, even though he was not included among them.

22 Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant fighter from Kabzeel, performed great exploits. He struck down Moab’s two mightiest warriors. He also went down into a pit on a snowy day and killed a lion. 23 And he struck down an Egyptian who was five cubits[d] tall. Although the Egyptian had a spear like a weaver’s rod in his hand, Benaiah went against him with a club. He snatched the spear from the Egyptian’s hand and killed him with his own spear. 24 Such were the exploits of Benaiah son of Jehoiada; he too was as famous as the three mighty warriors. 25 He was held in greater honour than any of the Thirty, but he was not included among the Three. And David put him in charge of his bodyguard.
