2 Samuel 23:18-39New American Standard Bible (NASB)
18 Abishai, the brother of Joab, the son of Zeruiah, was chief of the [a]thirty. And he swung his spear against three hundred [b]and killed them, and had a name as well as the three.19 He was most honored of the thirty, therefore he became their commander; however, he did not attain to the three.
20 Then Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, who had done mighty deeds, [c]killed the [d]two sons of Ariel of Moab. He also went down and killed a lion in the middle of a pit on a snowy day.21 He [e]killed an Egyptian, [f]an impressive man. Now the Egyptian had a spear in his hand, but he went down to him with a club and snatched the spear from the Egyptian’s hand and killed him with his own spear.22 These thingsBenaiah the son of Jehoiada did, and had a name as well as the three mighty men.23 He was honored among the thirty, but he did not attain to the three. And David appointed him over his guard.
