And they dwelt in their steads until the captivity. 005:023 And the children of the half tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the land: they increased from Bashan unto Baalhermon and Senir, and unto mount Hermon. 005:024 And these were the heads of the house of their fathers, even Epher, and Ishi, and Eliel, and Azriel, and Jeremiah, and Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty men of valour, famous men, and heads of the house of their fathers. 005:025 And they transgressed against the God of their fathers, and went a whoring after the gods of the people of the land, whom God destroyed before them. 005:026 And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan, unto this day. 006:001 The sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. 006:002 And the sons of Kohath; Amram, Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel. 006:003 And the children of Amram; Aaron, and Moses, and Miriam.

These were reckoned by their genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer did ordain in their set office. 009:023 So they and their children had the oversight of the gates of the house of the LORD, namely, the house of the tabernacle, by wards. 009:024 In four quarters were the porters, toward the east, west, north, and south. 009:025 And their brethren, which were in their villages, were to come after seven days from time to time with them. 009:026 For these Levites, the four chief porters, were in their set office, and were over the chambers and treasuries of the house of God. 009:027 And they lodged round about the house of God, because the charge was upon them, and the opening thereof every morning pertained to them. 009:028 And certain of them had the charge of the ministering vessels, that they should bring them in and out by tale. 009:029 Some of them also were appointed to oversee the vessels, and all the instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices. 009:030 And some of the sons of the priests made the ointment of the spices. 009:031 And Mattithiah, one of the Levites, who was the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the set office over the things that were made in the pans. 009:032 And other of their brethren, of the sons of the Kohathites, were over the shewbread, to prepare it every sabbath. 009:033 And these are the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites, who remaining in the chambers were free: for they were employed in that work day and night. 009:034 These chief fathers of the Levites were chief throughout their generations; these dwelt at Jerusalem. 009:035 And in Gibeon dwelt the father of Gibeon, Jehiel, whose wife's name was Maachah: 009:036 And his firstborn son Abdon, then Zur, and Kish, and Baal, and Ner, and Nadab. 009:037 And Gedor, and Ahio, and Zechariah, and Mikloth. 009:038 And Mikloth begat Shimeam. And they also dwelt with their brethren at Jerusalem, over against their brethren. 009:039 And Ner begat Kish; and Kish begat Saul; and Saul begat Jonathan, and Malchishua, and Abinadab, and Eshbaal. 009:040 And the son of Jonathan was Meribbaal: and Meribbaal begat Micah. 009:041 And the sons of Micah were, Pithon, and Melech, and Tahrea, and Ahaz. 009:042 And Ahaz begat Jarah; and Jarah begat Alemeth, and Azmaveth, and Zimri; and Zimri begat Moza; 009:043 And Moza begat Binea; and Rephaiah his son, Eleasah his son, Azel his son. 009:044 And Azel had six sons, whose names are these, Azrikam, Bocheru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan: these were the sons of Azel. 010:001 Now the Philistines fought against Israel; and the men of Israel fled from before the Philistines, and fell down slain in mount Gilboa. 010:002 And the Philistines followed hard after Saul, and after his sons; and the Philistines slew Jonathan, and Abinadab, and Malchishua, the sons of Saul. 010:003 And the battle went sore against Saul, and the archers hit him, and he was wounded of the archers. 010:004 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. 010:005 And when his armourbearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell likewise on the sword, and died. 010:006 So Saul died, and his three sons, and all his house died together. 010:007 And when all the men of Israel that were in the valley saw that they fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead, then they forsook their cities, and fled: and the Philistines came and dwelt in them. 010:008 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. 010:009 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 the people. 010:010 And they put his armour in the house of their gods, and fastened his head in the temple of Dagon. 010:011 And when all Jabeshgilead heard all that the Philistines had done to Saul, 010:012 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. 010:013 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 familiar spirit, to enquire of it; 010:014 And enquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse. 011:001 Then all Israel gathered themselves to David unto Hebron, saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh. 011:002 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, and thou shalt be ruler over my people Israel. 011:003 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. 011:004 And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus; where the Jebusites were, the inhabitants of the land. 011:005 And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David, Thou shalt not come hither. Nevertheless David took the castle of Zion, which is the city of David. 011:006 And David said, Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain. So Joab the son of Zeruiah went first up, and was chief. 011:007 And David dwelt in the castle; therefore they called it the city of David. 011:008 And he built the city round about, even from Millo round about: and Joab repaired the rest of the city. 011:009 So David waxed greater and greater: for the LORD of hosts was with him. 011:010 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. 011:011 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 one time. 011:012 And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was one of the three mighties. 011:013 He was with David at Pasdammim, and there the Philistines were gathered together to battle, where was a parcel of ground full of barley; and the people fled from before the Philistines. 011:014 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 deliverance. 011:015 Now three of the thirty captains went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam; and the host of the Philistines encamped in the valley of Rephaim. 011:016 And David was then in the hold, and the Philistines' garrison was then at Bethlehem. 011:017 And David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, that is at the gate! 011:018 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 LORD. 011:019 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 did these three mightiest. 011:020 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. 011:021 Of the three, he was more honourable than the two; for he was their captain: howbeit he attained not to the first three. 011:022 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. 011:023 And he slew an Egyptian, a man of great stature, five cubits high; and in the Egyptian's hand 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 spear. 011:024 These things did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and had the name among the three mighties. 011:025 Behold, he was honourable among the thirty, but attained not to the first three: and David set him over his guard. 011:026 Also the valiant men of the armies were, Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan the son of Dodo of Bethlehem, 011:027 Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite, 011:028 Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite, Abiezer the Antothite, 011:029 Sibbecai the Hushathite, Ilai the Ahohite, 011:030 Maharai the Netophathite, Heled the son of Baanah the Netophathite, 011:031 Ithai the son of Ribai of Gibeah, that pertained to the children of Benjamin, Benaiah the Pirathonite, 011:032 Hurai of the brooks of Gaash, Abiel the Arbathite, 011:033 Azmaveth the Baharumite, Eliahba the Shaalbonite, 011:034 The sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan the son of Shage the Hararite, 011:035 Ahiam the son of Sacar the Hararite, Eliphal the son of Ur, 011:036 Hepher the Mecherathite, Ahijah the Pelonite, 011:037 Hezro the Carmelite, Naarai the son of Ezbai, 011:038 Joel the brother of Nathan, Mibhar the son of Haggeri, 011:039 Zelek the Ammonite, Naharai the Berothite, the armourbearer of Joab the son of Zeruiah, 011:040 Ira the Ithrite, Gareb the Ithrite, 011:041 Uriah the Hittite, Zabad the son of Ahlai, 011:042 Adina the son of Shiza the Reubenite, a captain of the Reubenites, and thirty with him, 011:043 Hanan the son of Maachah, and Joshaphat the Mithnite, 011:044 Uzzia the Ashterathite, Shama and Jehiel the sons of Hothan the Aroerite, 011:045 Jediael the son of Shimri, and Joha his brother, the Tizite, 011:046 Eliel the Mahavite, and Jeribai, and Joshaviah, the sons of Elnaam, and Ithmah the Moabite, 011:047 Eliel, and Obed, and Jasiel the Mesobaite. 012:001 Now these are they that came to David to Ziklag, while he yet kept himself close because of Saul the son of Kish: and they were among the mighty men, helpers of the war. 012:002 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. 012:003 The chief was Ahiezer, then Joash, the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; and Jeziel, and Pelet, the sons of Azmaveth; and Berachah, and Jehu the Antothite. 012:004 And Ismaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the thirty, and over the thirty; and Jeremiah, and Jahaziel, and Johanan, and Josabad the Gederathite, 012:005 Eluzai, and Jerimoth, and Bealiah, and Shemariah, and Shephatiah the Haruphite, 012:006 Elkanah, and Jesiah, and Azareel, and Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korhites, 012:007 And Joelah, and Zebadiah, the sons of Jeroham of Gedor. 012:008 And of the Gadites there separated 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, and were as swift as the roes upon the mountains; 012:009 Ezer the first, Obadiah the second, Eliab the third, 012:010 Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth, 012:011 Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh, 012:012 Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth, 012:013 Jeremiah the tenth, Machbanai the eleventh. 012:014 These were of the sons of Gad, captains of the host: one of the least was over an hundred, and the greatest over a thousand. 012:015 These are they that went over Jordan in the first month, when it had overflown all his banks; and they put to flight all them of the valleys, both toward the east, and toward the west. 012:016 And there came of the children of Benjamin and Judah to the hold unto David. 012:017 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 be knit unto you: but if ye be come to betray me to mine enemies, seeing there is no wrong in mine hands, the God of our fathers look thereon, and rebuke it. 012:018 Then the spirit came upon Amasai, who was chief of the captains, and he said, Thine are we, David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse: peace, peace be unto thee, and peace be to thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. Then David received them, and made them captains of the band. 012:019 And there fell some of Manasseh to David, when he came with the Philistines against Saul to battle: but they helped them not: for the lords of the Philistines upon advisement sent him away, saying, He will fall to his master Saul to the jeopardy of our heads. 012:020 As he went to Ziklag, there fell to him of Manasseh, Adnah, and Jozabad, and Jediael, and Michael, and Jozabad, and Elihu, and Zilthai, captains of the thousands that were of Manasseh. 012:021 And they helped David against the band of the rovers: for they were all mighty men of valour, and were captains in the host. 012:022 For at that time day by day there came to David to help him, until it was a great host, like the host of God. 012:023 And these are the numbers of the bands that were ready armed to the war, and came to David to Hebron, to turn the kingdom of Saul to him, according to the word of the LORD. 012:024 The children of Judah that bare shield and spear were six thousand and eight hundred, ready armed to the war. 012:025 Of the children of Simeon, mighty men of valour for the war, seven thousand and one hundred. 012:026 Of the children of Levi four thousand and six hundred. 012:027 And Jehoiada was the leader of the Aaronites, and with him were three thousand and seven hundred; 012:028 And Zadok, a young man mighty of valour, and of his father's house twenty and two captains. 012:029 And of the children of Benjamin, the kindred of Saul, three thousand: for hitherto the greatest part of them had kept the ward of the house of Saul. 012:030 And of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand and eight hundred, mighty men of valour, famous throughout the house of their fathers. 012:031 And of the half tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, which were expressed by name, to come and make David king. 012:032 And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment. 012:033 Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank: they were not of double heart. 012:034 And of Naphtali a thousand captains, and with them with shield and spear thirty and seven thousand. 012:035 And of the Danites expert in war twenty and eight thousand and six hundred. 012:036 And of Asher, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, forty thousand. 012:037 And on the other side of Jordan, of the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and of the half tribe of Manasseh, with all manner of instruments of war for the battle, an hundred and twenty thousand. 012:038 All these men of war, that could keep rank, came with a perfect heart to Hebron, to make David king over all Israel: and all the rest also of Israel were of one heart to make David king. 012:039 And there they were with David three days, eating and drinking: for their brethren had prepared for them. 012:040 Moreover they that were nigh them, even unto Issachar and Zebulun and Naphtali, brought bread on asses, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, and meat, meal, cakes of figs, and bunches of raisins, and wine, and oil, and oxen, and sheep abundantly: for there was joy in Israel. 013:001 And David consulted with the captains of thousands and hundreds, and with every leader. 013:002 And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, If it seem good unto you, and that it be of the LORD our God, let us send abroad unto our brethren every where, that are left in all the land of Israel, and with them also to the priests and Levites which are in their cities and suburbs, that they may gather themselves unto us: 013:003 And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we enquired not at it in the days of Saul. 013:004 And all the congregation said that they would do so: for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people. 013:005 So David gathered all Israel together, from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering of Hemath, to bring the ark of God from Kirjathjearim. 013:006 And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjathjearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up thence the ark of God the LORD, that dwelleth between the cherubims, whose name is called on it. 013:007 And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart. 013:008 And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets. 013:009 And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled. 013:010 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God. 013:011 And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perezuzza to this day. 013:012 And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me? 013:013 So David brought not the ark home to himself to the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite. 013:014 And the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the house of Obededom, and all that he had. 014:001 Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and timber of cedars, with masons and carpenters, to build him an house. 014:002 And David perceived that the LORD had confirmed him king over Israel, for his kingdom was lifted up on high, because of his people Israel. 014:003 And David took more wives at Jerusalem: and David begat more sons and daughters. 014:004 Now these are the names of his children which he had in Jerusalem; Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon, 014:005 And Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet, 014:006 And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia, 014:007 And Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphalet. 014:008 And when the Philistines heard that David was anoi
