1 Chronicles 12:1

Warriors Who Joined David at Ziklag

12:1 These were the men who joined David in Ziklag, when he was banished 1  from the presence of Saul son of Kish. (They were among the warriors who assisted him in battle.

1 Chronicles 12:18

12:18 But a spirit 2  empowered 3  Amasai, the leader of the thirty warriors, and he said: 4 

“We are yours, O David!

We support 5  you, O son of Jesse!

May you greatly prosper! 6 

May those who help you prosper! 7 

Indeed 8  your God helps you!”

So David accepted them and made them leaders of raiding bands.

1 Chronicles 12:22

12:22 Each day men came to help David until his army became very large. 9 

1 tn Heb “kept from.”

2 tn Perhaps “the Spirit,” but the text has simply רוּחַ (ruakh) with no article (suggesting an indefinite reference).

3 tn Heb “clothed.”

4 tn The words “and he said” are supplied in the translation for clarity and for stylistic reasons.

5 tn Heb “are with.”

6 tn Heb “Peace, peace to you.” The Hebrew term שָׁלוֹם (shalom, “peace”) is repeated to emphasize degree.

7 tn Heb “and peace to the one who helps you.”

8 tn Or “for.”

9 tn Heb “for at the time of day in a day they were coming to David to help him until [there was] a great camp like the camp of God.” The term אֱלֹהִים (’elohim, “God”) is probably used idiomatically here to indicate the superlative.
