1 Dauid by a generall consent is made king at Hebron. 4 Hee winneth the castle of Sion from the Iebusites, by Ioabs valour. 10 A catalogue of Dauids mightie men.
2 And moreouer in time past, euen when Saul was king, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the Lord thy God said vnto thee, Thou shalt feede my people Israel, and thou shalt be ruler ouer my people Israel.2
3 Therefore came all the Elders of Israel to the king to Hebron, and Dauid made a couenant with them in Hebron before the Lord, and they annointed Dauid king ouer Israel, according to the word of the Lord, by Samuel.3
10 ¶ These also are the chiefe of the mightie men, whom Dauid had, who strenthened themselues with him in his kingdome, and with all Israel, to make him king according to the word of the Lord, concerning Israel.10
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 tooke it and brought it to Dauid. But Dauid would not drink of it, but powred it out to the Lord,
19 And said, My God forbid it mee, that I should doe this thing. Shall I drinke the blood of these men, that haue put their liues in ieopardie? for with the ieopardie of their liues, they brought it: therfore he would not drink it. These things did these three mightiest.19
23 And he slue an Egyptian, a man of great stature, fiue cubits high, and in the Egyptians hand was a speare like a weauers beame: and he went downe to him with a staffe, and pluckt the speare out of the Egyptians hand, and slue him with his owne speare.23

11:6 Chief - Before this he was one of David's chief captains:but now he is made captain - general of all the forces of Israel andJudah.
11:10 Mighty men - Yet David ascribed his success, not to the hostshe had, but to the Lord of hosts: not to the mighty men that were withhim, but to the mighty God, whole presence with us is all in all.
11:11 Slain - By his own hand, five hundred more being slain by othersthen joining with him, who pursued the victory, both which sums make upthe eight hundred, numbered #2Sam 23:8|. The slaughter of all is justlyascribed to him, because it was the effect of his valour.
11:18 Would not drink of it - That water which he thought too preciousfor his own drinking, he poured out to the Lord for a drink - offering.If we have any thing better than other, let God be honoured with it, whois the best and should have the best.
11:19 Shall I drink the blood, &c. - It put him into the utmostconfusion, to think three brave men should hazard their lives, tofetch water for him. In his account, it turns the water into blood.It is to the honour of great men, not to be prodigal of the blood ofthose they employ.
11:21 Attained not - He did not equal them.
11:41 Uriah - The last of that catalogue in #2Sam 23:39|.But here some others are added to the number, because though they werenot of the thirty, yet they were men of great valour and renown amongstDavid's commanders.
11:42 Thirty - Thirty captains who were under him as their colonel.
