2 Samuel 4:3-5 Living Bible (TLB)

2-3 The command of the Israeli troops then fell to two brothers, Baanah and Rechab, who were captains of King Ish-bosheth’s raiding bands. They were the sons of Rimmon, who was from Beeroth in Benjamin. (People from Beeroth are counted as Benjaminites even though they fled to Gittaim,[a] where they now live.)

(There was a little lame grandson of King Saul’s named Mephibosheth, who was the son of Prince Jonathan. He was five years old at the time Saul and Jonathan were killed at the battle of Jezreel. When the news of the outcome of the battle reached the capital, the child’s nurse grabbed him and fled, but she fell and dropped him as she was running, and he became lame.)

Rechab and Baanah arrived at King Ish-bosheth’s home one noon as he was taking a nap.


  1. 2 Samuel 4:2 to Gittaim, which is not in Benjamin.
