1 Chronicles 11:10-19New American Standard Bible (NASB)
David’s Mighty Men
10 Now these are the heads of the mighty men whom David had, who gave him strong support in his kingdom, together with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the Lord concerning Israel.11 These constitute the list of the mighty men whom David had: Jashobeam, the son of a Hachmonite, the chief of the thirty; he lifted up his spear against three hundred [a]whom he killed at one time.
12 After him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was[b]one of the three mighty men.13 He was with David at [c]Pasdammim when the Philistines were gathered together there to battle, and there was a plot of ground full of barley; and the people fled before the Philistines.14 They took their stand in the midst of the plot and defended it, and struck down the Philistines; and the Lord saved them by a great [d]victory.
15 Now three of the thirty chief men went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam, while the army of the Philistines was camping in the valley of Rephaim.16 David was then in the stronghold, while the garrison of the Philistines was then in Bethlehem.17 David had a craving and said, “Oh that someone would give me water to drink from the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate!”18 So the three broke through the camp of the Philistines and drew water from the well of Bethlehem which was by the gate, and took it and brought it to David; nevertheless David would not drink it, but poured it out to the Lord;19 and he said, “Be it far from me before my God that I should do this. Shall I drink the blood of these men who went[e]at the risk of their lives? For at the risk of their lives they brought it.” Therefore he would not drink it. These things the three mighty men did.
