1 Chronicles 12:1-7

The men who joined David's army at Ziklag

1 David went to Ziklag town because King Saul, the son of Kish, had chased him away. Many brave men went to David there. They were some of the brave soldiers who helped David to fight in war. 2 They could shoot with bows and arrows. They could use slings to throw stones with either their right hand or their left hand. They were relatives of Saul, from Benjamin's tribe. Their names were:

  • 3 Ahiezer, their leader, and his brother Joash. They were sons of Shemaah, who was from Gibeah town.
  • Jeziel and Pelet, the sons of Azmaveth.
