1 Chr 11:10–47

11:10–47 On the whole, this list of chiefs and mighty men is derived from 2 Sam. 23:8–39. The purpose is stated in the opening verse: these leaders supported David’s kingship with “all Israel . . . according to the word of the Lord.” The mighty acts of David’s men highlight their outstanding qualities, placing David himself in a duly favorable light.
