1 Chronicles 11:20-47New American Standard Bible (NASB)
20 As for [a]Abshai the brother of Joab, he was chief of the [b]thirty, and he swung his spear against three hundred [c]and killed them; and he had a name as well as the [d]thirty.21 Of the three in the second rank he was the most honored and became their commander; however, he did not attain to the first three.
22 Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, mighty in deeds, struck down the [e]two sons of Ariel of Moab. He also went down and [f]killed a lion inside a pit on a snowy day.23 He [g]killed an Egyptian, a man of great stature five [h]cubits tall. Now in the Egyptian’s hand wasa spear like a weaver’s beam, but he went down to him with a club and snatched the spear from the Egyptian’s hand and [i]killed him with his own spear.24 These things Benaiah the son of Jehoiada did, and had a name as well as the three mighty men.25 Behold, he was honored among the thirty, but he did not attain to the three; and David appointed him over his guard.
