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

Psalm 122:5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

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.
And David dwelt in the castle; therefore they called it the city of David.
And he built the city round about, even from Millo round about: and Joab repaired the rest of the city.
So David waxed greater 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.
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.
And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, 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; and the people fled from before the Philistines.

Pas-dammim Ephes-dammim is here called Pas-dammim, by aphaeresis

1 Samuel 17:1 Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and …

a parcel In Samuel it is, `a piece of ground full of {lentiles}' and there is probably a mistake of {seorim} `barley,' for {adashim}, `lentiles.' or vice-versa. Some, however, think there were both lentiles and barley in the field, which is not unlikely.

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.
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.
And David was then in the hold, and the Philistines' garrison was then at Bethlehem.
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!
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,
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.
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.
Of the three, he was more honourable than the two; for he was their captain: howbeit he attained not to the first three.
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.
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.
These things did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and had the name among the three mighties.
Behold, he was honourable among the thirty, but attained not to the first three: and David set him over his guard.
Also the valiant men of the armies were, Asahel the brother of Joab, Elhanan the son of Dodo of Bethlehem,
Shammoth the Harorite, Helez the Pelonite,

Shammoth Shammah, Shammoth, and as it is in

1 Chronicles 27:8 The fifth captain for the fifth month was Shamhuth the Izrahite: …

Shamhuth, having all the same signification, appear to have been deemed perfectly interchangeable, and accordingly used indifferently.

2 Samuel 23:25 Shammah the Harodite, Elika the Harodite,

Shammah the Harodite
The variation of () Harorite of () Harodite, arises from the mutation of () {raish} and () {daleth}


2 Samuel 23:26 Helez the Paltite, Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite,


Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite, Abiezer the Antothite,
Sibbecai the Hushathite, Ilai the Ahohite,

Sibbecai The reading of () {Mebunnai} for () Sibbecai, seems to be occasioned by the mistake of () samech of () mem, and a () noon for a () caph; and a difference in the vowel points.

1 Chronicles 27:11 The eighth captain for the eighth month was Sibbecai the Hushathite, …

2 Samuel 23:27,28 Abiezer the Anethothite, Mebunnai the Hushathite…

Mebunnai, Zalmon

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

Maharai the Netophathite, Heled the son of Baanah the Netophathite,
Ithai the son of Ribai of Gibeah, that pertained to the children of Benjamin, Benaiah the Pirathonite,

Ithai The variation of () Ithai, and () Ittai, simply arises from the elision of () yood which is compensated by the reduplication of the next letter

2 Samuel 23:29 Heleb the son of Baanah, a Netophathite, Ittai the son of Ribai out …


Hurai of the brooks of Gaash, Abiel the Arbathite,
Azmaveth the Baharumite, Eliahba the Shaalbonite,

Baharumite Barhumite, () seems a mistake for () Baharumite; the letters cheth and raish being transposed
