16 And there came also of the men of Benjamin, and of Juda to the hold, in which David abode. 17 And David went out to meet them, and said: If you are come peaceably to me to help me, let my heart be joined to you: but if you plot against me for my enemies whereas I have no iniquity in my hands, let the God of our fathers see, and judge. 18 But the spirit came upon Amasai the chief among thirty, and he said: We are thine, O David, and for thee, O son of Isai: peace, peace be to thee, and peace to thy helpers. For thy God helpeth thee. So David received them, and made them captains of the band. 19 And there were some of Manasses that went over to David, when he came with the Philistines against Saul to fight: but he did not fight with them: because the lords of the Philistines taking counsel sent him back, saying: With the danger of our heads he will return to his master Saul. 20 So when he went back to Siceleg, there fled to him of Manasses, Ednas and Jozabad, and Jedihel, and Michael, and Ednas, and Jozabad, and Eliu, and Salathi, captains of thousands in Manasses. 21 These helped David against the rovers: for they were all most valiant men, and were made commanders in the army. 22 Moreover day by day there came some to David to help him till they became a great number, like the army of God. 23 And this is the number of the chiefs of the army who came to David, when he was in Hebron, to transfer to him the kingdom of Saul, according to the word of the Lord. 24 The sons of Juda bearing shield and spear, six thousand eight hundred well appointed to war. 25 Of the sons of Simeon valiant men for war, seven thousand one hundred. 26 Of the sons of Levi, four thousand six hundred.
