He put his brother Abishai in charge of the rest of the army 1 and they were deployed 2 against the Ammonites.
Their sisters were Zeruiah and Abigail. Zeruiah’s three sons were Abshai, 1 Joab, and Asahel.
Abishai son of Zeruiah 1 killed 18,000 Edomites in the Valley of Salt.
He put his brother Abishai in charge of the rest of the army and they were deployed against the Ammonites.
David said to Ahimelech the Hittite and Abishai son of Zeruiah, Joab’s brother, “Who will go down with me to Saul in the camp?” Abishai replied, “I will go down with you.”
But David said to Abishai, “Don’t kill him! Who can extend his hand against the Lord’s chosen one 1 and remain guiltless?”
The three sons of Zeruiah were there – Joab, Abishai, and Asahel. (Now Asahel was as quick on his feet as one of the gazelles in the field.)
So Joab and his brother Abishai killed Abner, because he had killed their brother Asahel in Gibeon during the battle.
When the Ammonites saw the Arameans flee, they fled before his brother Abishai and went into the city. Joab withdrew from fighting the Ammonites and returned to 1 Jerusalem. 2
Abishai son of Zeruiah replied, “For this should not Shimei be put to death? After all, he cursed the Lord’s anointed!”
Abishai the brother of Joab was head of the three 1 elite warriors. He killed three hundred men with his spear 2 and gained fame along with the three elite warriors. 3
When the Ammonites saw the Arameans flee, they fled before Joab’s 1 brother Abishai and withdrew into the city. Joab went back to Jerusalem. 2
So David and Abishai approached the army at night and found Saul lying asleep in the entrenchment with his spear stuck in the ground by his head. Abner and the army were lying all around him.
Abishai said to David, “Today God has delivered your enemy into your hands. Now let me drive the spear 1 right through him into the ground with one swift jab! 2 A second jab won’t be necessary!”
So Joab and Abishai chased Abner. At sunset they came to the hill of Ammah near Giah on the way to the wilderness of Gibeon.
Then Abishai son of Zeruiah said to the king, “Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king? Let me go over and cut off his head!”
Then David said to Abishai and to all his servants, “My own son, my very own flesh and blood, 1 is trying to take my life. So also now this Benjaminite! Leave him alone so that he can curse, for the Lord has spoken to him.
David then sent out the army – a third under the leadership of Joab, a third under the leadership of Joab’s brother Abishai son of Zeruiah, and a third under the leadership of Ittai the Gittite. The king said to the troops, “I too will indeed march out with you.”
The king gave this order to Joab, Abishai, and Ittai: “For my sake deal gently with the young man Absalom.” Now the entire army was listening when the king gave all the leaders this order concerning Absalom.
Then David said to Abishai, “Now Sheba son of Bicri will cause greater disaster for us than Absalom did! Take your lord’s servants and pursue him. Otherwise he will secure 1 fortified cities for himself and get away from us.”
