1 Chronicles 12 Text (WEB)
  1. Now these are those who 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, his helpers in war.
  2. They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand and the left in slinging stones and in shooting arrows from the bow: they were of Saul's brothers of Benjamin.
  3. The chief was Ahiezer; then Joash, the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite, and Jeziel, and Pelet, the sons of Azmaveth, and Beracah, and Jehu the Anathothite,
  4. and Ishmaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the thirty, and over the thirty, and Jeremiah, and Jahaziel, and Johanan, and Jozabad the Gederathite,
  5. Eluzai, and Jerimoth, and Bealiah, and Shemariah, and Shephatiah the Haruphite,
  6. Elkanah, and Isshiah, and Azarel, and Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korahites,
  7. and Joelah, and Zebadiah, the sons of Jeroham of Gedor.
  8. Of the Gadites there separated themselves to David to the stronghold in the wilderness, mighty men of valor, men trained for war, that could handle shield and spear; whose faces were like the faces of lions, and they were as swift as the roes on the mountains;
  9. Ezer the chief, 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 of the sons of Gad were captains of the army: he who was least was equal to one hundred, and the greatest to one thousand.
  15. These are those who went over the Jordan in the first month, when it had overflowed all its banks; and they put to flight all them of the valleys, both toward the east, and toward the west.
  16. There came of the children of Benjamin and Judah to the stronghold to David.
  17. David went out to meet them, and answered them, "If you have come peaceably to me to help me, my heart shall be knit to you; but if you have come to betray me to my adversaries, since there is no wrong in my hands, may the God of our fathers look thereon, and rebuke it."
  18. Then the Spirit came on Amasai, who was chief of the thirty, [and he said], "We are yours, David, and on your side, you son of Jesse: peace, peace be to you, and peace be to your helpers; for your God helps you." Then David received them, and made them captains of the band.
  19. Of Manasseh also there fell away some to David, when he came with the Philistines against Saul to battle; but they didn't help them; for the lords of the Philistines sent him away after consultation, saying, "He will fall away to his master Saul to the jeopardy of our heads."
  20. As he went to Ziklag, there fell to him of Manasseh, Adnah, and Jozabad, and Jediael, and Michael, and Jozabad, and Elihu, and Zillethai, captains of thousands who were of Manasseh.
  21. They helped David against the band of rovers: for they were all mighty men of valor, and were captains in the army.
  22. For from day to day men came to David to help him, until there was a great army, like the army of God.
  23. These are the numbers of the heads of those who were armed for war, who came to David to Hebron, to turn the kingdom of Saul to him, according to the word of Yahweh.
  24. The children of Judah who bore shield and spear were six thousand and eight hundred, armed for war.
  25. Of the children of Simeon, mighty men of valor for the war, seven thousand and one hundred.
  26. Of the children of Levi four thousand and six hundred.
  27. Jehoiada was the leader of [the house of] Aaron; and with him were three thousand and seven hundred,
  28. and Zadok, a young man mighty of valor, and of his father's house twenty-two captains.
  29. Of the children of Benjamin, the brothers of Saul, three thousand: for hitherto the greatest part of them had kept their allegiance to the house of Saul.
  30. Of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand eight hundred, mighty men of valor, famous men in their fathers' houses.
  31. Of the half-tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, who were mentioned by name, to come and make David king.
  32. Of the children of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brothers were at their commandment.
  33. Of Zebulun, such as were able to go out in the army, who could set the battle in array, with all kinds of instruments of war, fifty thousand, and who could order [the battle array, and were] not of double heart.
  34. Of Naphtali one thousand captains, and with them with shield and spear thirty-seven thousand.
  35. Of the Danites who could set the battle in array, twenty-eight thousand six hundred.
  36. Of Asher, such as were able to go out in the army, who could set the battle in array, forty thousand.
  37. On the other side of the Jordan, of the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and of the half-tribe of Manasseh, with all kinds of instruments of war for the battle, one hundred twenty thousand.
  38. All these being men of war, who could order the battle array, 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.
  39. They were there with David three days, eating and drinking; for their brothers had made preparation for them.
  40. Moreover those who were near to them, [even] as far as Issachar and Zebulun and Naphtali, brought bread on donkeys, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, food of meal, cakes of figs, and clusters of raisins, and wine, and oil, and cattle, and sheep in abundance: for there was joy in Israel.

1 Chronicles 12 Text (Latin)
  1. Hi quoque venerunt ad David in Siceleg, cum adhuc fugeret Saul filium Cis, qui erant fortissimi et egregii pugnatores,
  2. tendentes arcum, et utraque manu fundis saxa jacientes, et dirigentes sagittas : de fratribus Saul ex Benjamin.
  3. Princeps Ahiecer, et Joas filii Samaa Gabaathites, et Jaziel, et Phallet filii Azmoth, et Baracha, et Jehu Anathotites.

  5. Et Eluzai et Jerimuth, et Baalia, et Samaria, et Saphatia Haruphites.
  6. Elcana, et Jesia, et Azareel, et Joëzer, et Jesbaam de Carehim :
  7. Joëla quoque, et Zabadia filii Jeroham de Gedor.
  8. Sed et de Gaddi transfugerunt ad David cum lateret in deserto, viri robustissimi, et pugnatores optimi, tenentes clypeum et hastam : facies eorum quasi facies leonis, et veloces quasi capreæ in montibus :

  10. Masmana quartus, Jeremias quintus,
  11. Ethi sextus, Eliel septimus,
  12. Johanan octavus, Elzebad nonus,

  14. Hi de filiis Gad principes exercitus : novissimus centum militibus præerat, et maximus, mille.
  15. Isti sunt qui transierunt Jordanem mense primo, quando inundare consuevit super ripas suas : et omnes fugaverunt qui morabantur in vallibus ad orientalem plagam et occidentalem.
  16. Venerunt autem et de Benjamin, et de Juda ad præsidium, in quo morabatur David.
  17. Egressusque est David obviam eis, et ait : Si pacifice venistis ad me ut auxiliemini mihi, cor meum jungatur vobis : si autem insidiamini mihi pro adversariis meis, cum ego iniquitatem in manibus non habeam, videat Deus patrum nostrorum, et judicet.
  18. Spiritus vero induit Amasai principem inter triginta, et ait : Tui sumus, o David ; et tecum, fili Isai. Pax, pax tibi, et pax adjutoribus tuis : te enim adjuvat Deus tuus. Suscepit ergo eos David, et constituit principes turmæ.
  19. Porro de Manasse transfugerunt ad David, quando veniebat cum Philisthiim adversus Saul, ut pugnaret : et non dimicavit cum eis, quia inito consilio remiserunt eum principes Philisthinorum, dicentes : Periculo capitis nostri revertetur ad dominum suum Saul.
  20. Quando igitur reversus est in Siceleg, transfugerunt ad eum de Manasse, Ednas, et Jozabad, et Jedihel, et Michaël, et Ednas, et Jozabad, et Eliu, et Salathi, principes millium in Manasse.
  21. Hi præbuerunt auxilium David adversus latrunculos : omnes enim erant viri fortissimi, et facti sunt principes in exercitu.
  22. Sed et per singulos dies veniebant ad David ad auxiliandum ei, usque dum fieret grandis numerus, quasi exercitus Dei.
  23. Iste quoque est numerus principum exercitus, qui venerunt ad David, cum esset in Hebron, ut transferrent regnum Saul ad eum, juxta verbum Domini.
  24. Filii Juda portantes clypeum et hastam, sex millia octingenti expediti ad prælium.
  25. De filiis Simeon virorum fortissimorum ad pugnandum, septem millia centum.
  26. De filiis Levi, quatuor millia sexcenti.
  27. Jojoda quoque princeps de stirpe Aaron, et cum eo tria millia septingenti.
  28. Sadoc etiam puer egregiæ indolis, et domus patris ejus, principes viginti duo.
  29. De filiis autem Benjamin fratribus Saul, tria millia : magna enim pars eorum adhuc sequebatur domum Saul.
  30. Porro de filiis Ephraim viginti millia octingenti, fortissimi robore, viri nominati in cognationibus suis.
  31. Et ex dimidia tribu Manasse, decem et octo millia, singuli per nomina sua venerunt ut constituerent regem David.
  32. De filiis quoque Issachar viri eruditi, qui noverant singula tempora ad præcipiendum quid facere deberet Israël, principes ducenti : omnis autem reliqua tribus eorum consilium sequebatur.
  33. Porro de Zabulon qui egrediebantur ad prælium, et stabant in acie instructi armis bellicis, quinquaginta millia venerunt in auxilium, non in corde duplici.
  34. Et de Nephthali, principes mille, et cum eis instructi clypeo et hasta, triginta et septem millia.
  35. De Dan etiam præparati ad prælium, viginti octo millia sexcenti.
  36. Et de Aser egredientes ad pugnam, et in acie provocantes, quadraginta millia.
  37. Trans Jordanem autem de filiis Ruben, et de Gad, et dimidia parte tribus Manasse instructi armis bellicis, centum viginti millia.
  38. Omnes isti viri bellatores expediti ad pugnandum, corde perfecto venerunt in Hebron, ut constituerent regem David super universum Israël : sed et omnes reliqui ex Israël, uno corde erant, ut rex fieret David.
  39. Fueruntque ibi apud David tribus diebus comedentes et bibentes : præparaverant enim eis fratres sui.
  40. Sed et qui juxta eos erant, usque ad Issachar, et Zabulon, et Nephthali, afferebant panes in asinis, et camelis, et mulis, et bobus ad vescendum : farinam, palathas, uvam passam, vinum, oleum, boves, arietes ad omnem copiam : gaudium quippe erat in Israël.
1 Chronicles 12 Text (KJV)
  1. 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.
  2. 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 Berachah, and Jehu the Antothite,
  4. And Ismaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the thirty, and over the thirty; and Jeremiah, and Jahaziel, and Johanan, and Josabad the Gederathite,
  5. Eluzai, and Jerimoth, and Bealiah, and Shemariah, and Shephatiah the Haruphite,
  6. Elkanah, and Jesiah, and Azareel, and Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korhites,
  7. And Joelah, and Zebadiah, the sons of Jeroham of Gedor.
  8. 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;
  9. Ezer 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, Machbanai the eleventh.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. And there came of the children of Benjamin and Judah to the hold unto David.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. And they helped David against the band of the rovers: for they were all mighty men of valour, and were captains in the host.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. The children of Judah that bare shield and spear were six thousand and eight hundred, ready armed to the war.
  25. Of the children of Simeon, mighty men of valour for the war, seven thousand and one hundred.
  26. Of the children of Levi four thousand and six hundred.
  27. And Jehoiada was the leader of the Aaronites, and with him were three thousand and seven hundred;
  28. And Zadok, a young man mighty of valour, and of his father's house twenty and two captains.
  29. 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.
  30. And of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand and eight hundred, mighty men of valour, famous throughout the house of their fathers.
  31. And of the half tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, which were expressed by name, to come and make David king.
  32. 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.
  33. 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.
  34. And of Naphtali a thousand captains, and with them with shield and spear thirty and seven thousand.
  35. And of the Danites expert in war twenty and eight thousand and six hundred.
