David Anointed as King of Israel - 1st Chronicles 11

1 Chronicles 11:1 Then all Israel gathered themselves to David unto  Hebron, saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh.  

1 Chronicles 11:2 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, and thou shalt be ruler over my  people Israel, and thou shalt be ruler over my people Israel.  

1 Chronicles 11:3 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.  

1 Chronicles 11:4 And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which  is Jebus; where the Jebusites were, the inhabitants of the  land. 

1 Chronicles 11:5 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. 

1 Chronicles 11:6 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. 

1 Chronicles 11:7 And David dwelt in the castle;  therefore they called it the city of David. 

1 Chronicles 11:8 And he  built the city round about, even from Millo round about: and  Joab repaired the rest of the city. 

1 Chronicles 11:9 So David waxed  greater and greater: for the LORD of hosts was with him.  

1 Chronicles 11:10 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.  

1st Chronicles

1 Chronicles 11:11 And this is the number of the mighty men whom  David had; Jashobeam, and Hachmonite, the chief of the  captains: he lifted up his spear against three hundred slain  by him at one time. 

1 Chronicles 11:12 And after him was Eleazar  the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was one of the three  mighties. 

1 Chronicles 11:13 He was with David at Pas-dammim, 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. 

1 Chronicles 11:14 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.   

1 Chronicles 11:15 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. 

1 Chronicles 11:16  And David was then in the hold, and the Philistines’  garrison was then at Bethlehem. 

1 Chronicles 11:17 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! 

1 Chronicles 11:18  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,  

1 Chronicles 11:19 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.  

1 Chronicles 11:20 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. 

1 Chronicles 11:21 Of  the three, he was more honourable than the two; for he was  their captain: howbeit he attained not to the first three.  

1 Chronicles 11:22 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. 

1 Chronicles 11:23 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.  

1 Chronicles 11:24 These things did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and  had the name among the three mighties. 

1 Chronicles 11:25 Behold, he  was honourable among the thirty, but attained not to the  first three: and David set him over his guard.
