Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah,

and his brethren, of the house of his father, the Korahites [were] - over the work of the service, keepers of the gates of the taber

was the ruler over them in time past, [and] the LORD (was] 21 with him. (And] Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah (was] 22 porter of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. All

these (which were) chosen to be porters in the gates (were) two hundred and iwelve. These were reckoned by their genealogy

in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer did ordain in 23 their set office. So they and their children (had) the oversight

of the gates of the house of the LORD, (namely,] the house of 24 the tabernaclo, by wards. In four quarters were the porters, 25 toward the east, west, north, and south. And their brethren,

(which were) in their villages, (were) to come after seven days 26 from time to time with them. For these Levites, the four chief

porters, were in (their) set office, and were over the chambers 27 and treasuries of the house of God. And they lodged round

about the house of God, because the charge (was) upon them,

and the opening thereof every morning (pertained] to them. 28 And (certain) of them had the charge of the ministering vessels, 29 that they should bring them in and out by tale. (Some) of

them also [were] appointed to oversee the vessels, and all the

instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine flour, and the wine, 30 and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices. And some] 31 of the sons of the priests made the ointment of the spices. And

Mattithiah, (one) of the Levites, who was) the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the set office over the things that were

32 made in the pans. And (other) of their brethren of the sons of

the Kohathites, (were) over the shew bread, to prepare [it] every 53 sabbath. And these [are) the singers, chief of the fathers of

the Levites, (who remaining) in the chambers (were) tree : for 34 they were employed in (that) work day and night. These chief

fathers of the Levites (were) chief throughout their generations :

these dwelt at Jerusalem. 85 And in Gibeon dwelt the father of Gibeon, Jehiel, whose 36 wife's name (was) Maachah: And his firstborn son Abdon, then 37 Zur, and Kish, and Baal, and Ner, and Nadab, And Gedor, and 38 Ahio, and Zechariah, and Mikloth. And Mikloth begat Shie

in account of the overthrow and death of Saul; the triumph of the Philistines over him ; and the kindness of the men of Jabeshgilead to him and his sons. 1 Tow the Philistines fought against Israel ; and the men 2 slain in mount Gilboa. And the Philistines followed hard after

Saul, and after his sons ; and the Philistines slew Jonathan, 3 and Abinadab, and Malchishua, the sons of Saul. And the bat

tle went sore against Saul, and the Archers hit him, and he was wounded of the archers. Then said Saul to his armourbearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust me through therewith ; lest these uncircumcised come and abuse me. But his armourbearer would not ; for he was sore afraid. So Saul took a sword and

fell upon it. And when his armourbearer saw that Saul was 6 dead, he fell likewise on the sword, and died. So Saul died, 7 and his three sons, and all his house died together. And when

all the men of Israel that (were) in the valley saw that they fled, and tliat. Saul and his sons were dead, then they forsook their cities, and fled: and the Philistines came and dwelt in them.

And it came to pass on the morrow, when the Philistines came to strip the slain, that they found Saul and his sons fallen . in mount Gilboa. And when they had stripped him, they

took his head, and his armour, and sent into the land of the

Philistines round about, to carry tidings unto their idols, and to 10 the people. And they put his armour in the house of their

gods, and fastened his head in the temple of Dagon. 11 And when all Jabeshgilead heard all that the Philistines had 12 done to Saul, They arose, all the valiant men, and took away

the body of Saul, and the bodies of his sons, and brought them to Jabesh, and buried their bones under the oak in Jabesh, and fasted seven days.

So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, (even] against the word of the LORD, which

he kept not, and also for asking (counsel] of (one that had) a 14 familiar spirit, to inquire (of it;] And inquired not of the LORD:

therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.

David, by general consent, is made king at Hebron ; he wins the

castle of Zion from the Jebusites, by Joab's valour ; a catalogue of David's mighty men, with their principal achievements.

HEN all Israel gathered themselves to David unto

Hebron, saying, Behold, we [are) thy bone and thy flesh. 2 And moreover in time past, even when Saul was king, thou

(wast] he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel : and the

LORD thy God said unto thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, 3 and thou shalt be ruler over my people Israel. Therefore came

all the elders of Israel to the king to Hebron ; and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the LORD ; and they anointed David king over Israel, according to the word of the LORD by Samuel.

And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which [is] Jebus ; where the Jebusites (were,) the inhabitants of the land. 5 And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David, Thou shalt 'not

come hither. Nevertheless David took the castle of Zion, 6 which [is] the city of David. And David said, Whosoever

smiteth the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain. So Joab 7 the son of Zeruiah went first up, and was chief. And David

dwelt in the castle ; therefore they called it the city of David. 8 And he built the city round about, even from Millo round about : 9 and Joab repaired the rest of the city. So David waxed greater 10 and greater, for the Lord of hosts (was) with him. These also

[are] the chief of the mighty men whom David had, who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, [and] with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the

LORD concerning Israel. 11 And this [is] the number of the mighty men whom David

had ; Jashobeam, an Hachmonite, the chief of the captains ;

he lifted up his spear against three hundred slain (by him) at 12 one time. And after him (was] Eleazar the son of Dodo, the 13 Ahobite, who [was one) of the three mighties. He was with

David at Pasdammim, and there the Philistines were gathered

together to battle, where was a parcel of ground full of barley ; 14 and the people fled from before the Philistines. And they set

themselves in the midst of (that) parcel, and delivered it, and

slew the Philistines ; and the LORD saved [them] by a great 15 deliverance. Now three of the thirty captains went down to

the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam ; and the host of 16 the Philistines encamped in the valley of Rephaim. And David

(was) then in the hold, and the Philistines' garrison (was) then 17 at Bethlehem. And David longed, and said, Oh that one

would give me drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, that 18 [is] at the gate! And the three brake through the host of the

Philistines, and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, that (was] by the gate, and took [it] and brought [it] to David :

but David would not drink [of] it, but poured it out to the 19 LORD, And said, My God forbid it me, that I should do this

thing: shall I drink the blood of these men that have put their lives in jeopardy ? for with (the jeopardy of] their lives they

brought it. Therefore he would not drink it. These things 20 did these three mightiest. And Abishai the brother of Joab,

he was chief of the three : for lifting up his spear against three

hundred, he slew (them,] and had a name among the three. 21 Of the three he was more honourable than the two ; for he was

their captain : howbeit he attained not to the (first) three. 22 Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel,

who had done many acts; he slew two lionlike men of Moab :

also he went down and slew a lion in a pit in a snowy day. 23 And he slew an Egyptian, a man of [great] stature, five cubits

high ; and in the Egyptian's hánd (was) a spear like a weaver's beam ; and he went down to him with a staff, and plucked the

spear out of the Egyptian's hand, and slew him with his own 24 spear. These [things) did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and 25 had a name among the three mighties. Behold, he was

honourable among the thirty, but attained not to the (first] three : 26 and David set him over his guard. Also the valiant men of the

armies (were] Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan the son of 27 Dodo of Bethlehem, Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite, 28 Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite, Abiezer the Antothite, Sib. 29 becai the Hushathite, Ilai the Ahohite, Maharai the Netopha30 thite, Heled the son of Baanah the Netophathite, Ithai the son 31 of Ribai of Gibeah, (that pertained] to the children of Benjamin, 32 Benaiah the Pirathonite, Hurai of the brooks of Gaash, Abiel 33 the Arbathite, Azmaveth the Baharumite, Eliahba the Shaal. 34 bonite, The sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan the son of 35 Shage the Hararite, Ahiam the son of Sacar the Hararite, Eli36 phal the son of Ur, Hepher the Mecherathite, Ahijah the Pe37 38 lonite, Hezro the Carmelite, Naaria the son of Eżbai, Joel VOL.III.

A list of the companies that came to David Ziklag ; and the armies

that came to him at Hebron.

OW these [are] they that came to David to Ziklag,

of Kish': and they (were) among the mighty men, helpers of 2 the war. (They were] armed with bows, and could use both

the right hand and the left in (hurling] stones and [shooting ]

arrows out of a bow, (even) of Saul's brethren of Benjamin. 3 The chief (was) Ahiezer, then Joash the sons of Shemaah the

Gibeathite ; and Jeziel, and Pelet, the sons of Azmaveth ; and 4 Berachah, and Jehu the Antothite, And Ismaiah the Gibeonite,

themselves“ unto David into the hold to the wilderness men of might, (and) men of war [fit] for the battle, that could handle

shield and buckler, whose faces [were like the faces of lions, 9 and [were] as swift as the roes upon the mountains ; Ezer the 10 first, Obadiah the second, Eliab the third, Mishmannah the il fourth, Jeremiah the fifth, Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh, 12 13 Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth, Jeremiah the tenth, 14 Machbanai the eleventh. These [were] of the sons of Gad,

captains of the host : one of the least (was) over an hundred, 15' and the greatest over a thousand. These sare) they that went

over Jordan in the first month, when it had overflown all his

banks ; "and they put to fight all.[them] of the vallies, [both] 16 toward the east, and toward the west. And there came of the 17 children of Benjamin and Judah to the hold unto David. And

David went out to meet them, and answered and said unto them, If ye be come peaceably unto me to help me, mine heart shall
