1 CHRONICLES 12
1: Now these are they that came to David to Ziklag, while he yet kept himself close because of Saul the son of Kish: and they were among the mighty men, helpers of the war.
2: They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand and the left in hurling stones and shooting arrows out of a bow, even of Saul's brethren of Benjamin.
3: The chief was Ahiezer, then Joash, the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; and Jeziel, and Pelet, the sons of Azmaveth; and Berachah, and Jehu the Antothite.
4: And Ismaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the thirty, and over the thirty; and Jeremiah, and Jahaziel, and Johanan, and Josabad the Gederathite,
5: Eluzai, and Jerimoth, and Bealiah, and Shemariah, and Shephatiah the Haruphite,
6: Elkanah, and Jesiah, and Azareel, and Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korhites,
7: And Joelah, and Zebadiah, the sons of Jeroham of Gedor.
8: And of the Gadites there separated themselves unto David into the hold to the wilderness men of might, and men of war fit for the battle, that could handle shield and buckler, whose faces were like the faces of lions, and were as swift as the roes upon the mountains;
9: Ezer the first, Obadiah the second, Eliab the third,
10: Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth,
11: Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh,
12: Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth,
13: Jeremiah the tenth, Machbanai the eleventh.
14: These were of the sons of Gad, captains of the host: one of the least was over an hundred, and the greatest over a thousand.
15: These are they that went over Jordan in the first month, when it had overflown all his banks; and they put to flight all them of the valleys, both toward the east, and toward the west.
16: And there came of the children of Benjamin and Judah to the hold unto David.
17: And David went out to meet them, and answered and said unto them, If ye be come peaceably unto me to help me, mine heart shall be knit unto you: but if ye be come to betray me to mine enemies, seeing there is no wrong in mine hands, the God of our fathers look thereon, and rebuke it.
18: Then the spirit came upon Amasai, who was chief of the captains, and he said, Thine are we, David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse: peace, peace be unto thee, and peace be to thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. Then David received them, and made them captains of the band.
19: And there fell some of Manasseh to David, when he came with the Philistines against Saul to battle: but they helped them not: for the lords of the Philistines upon advisement sent him away, saying, He will fall to his master Saul to the jeopardy of our heads.
20: As he went to Ziklag, there fell to him of Manasseh, Adnah, and Jozabad, and Jediael, and Michael, and Jozabad, and Elihu, and Zilthai, captains of the thousands that were of Manasseh.
21: And they helped David against the band of the rovers: for they were all mighty men of valor, and were captains in the host.
22: For at that time day by day there came to David to help him, until it was a great host, like the host of God.
23: And these are the numbers of the bands that were ready armed to the war, and came to David to Hebron, to turn the kingdom of Saul to him, according to the word of the LORD.
24: The children of Judah that bare shield and spear were six thousand and eight hundred, ready armed to the war.

26: Of the children of Levi four thousand and six hundred.
27: And Jehoiada was the leader of the Aaronites, and with him were three thousand and seven hundred;
28: And Zadok, a young man mighty of valor, and of his father's house twenty and two captains.
29: And of the children of Benjamin, the kindred of Saul, three thousand: for hitherto the greatest part of them had kept the ward of the house of Saul.
30: And of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand and eight hundred, mighty men of valor, famous throughout the house of their fathers.
31: And of the half tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, which were expressed by name, to come and make David king.
32: And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.
33: Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank: they were not of double heart.
34: And of Naphtali a thousand captains, and with them with shield and spear thirty and seven thousand.
35: And of the Danites expert in war twenty and eight thousand and six hundred.
36: And of Asher, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, forty thousand.
37: And on the other side of Jordan, of the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and of the half tribe of Manasseh, with all manner of instruments of war for the battle, an hundred and twenty thousand.
38: All these men of war, that could keep rank, came with a perfect heart to Hebron, to make David king over all Israel: and all the rest also of Israel were of one heart to make David king.
39: And there they were with David three days, eating and drinking: for their brethren had prepared for them.
40: Moreover they that were nigh them, even unto Issachar and Zebulun and Naphtali, brought bread on asses, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, and meat, meal, cakes of figs, and bunches of raisins, and wine, and oil, and oxen, and sheep abundantly: for there was joy in Israel.


1 CHRONICLES 13
1: And David consulted with the captains of thousands and hundreds, and with every leader.
2: And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, If it seem good unto you, and that it be of the LORD our God, let us send abroad unto our brethren every where, that are left in all the land of Israel, and with them also to the priests and Levites which are in their cities and suburbs, that they may gather themselves unto us:
3: And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we inquired not at it in the days of Saul.
4: And all the congregation said that they would do so: for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people.
5: So David gathered all Israel together, from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering of Hemath, to bring the ark of God from Kirjathjearim.
6: And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjathjearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up thence the ark of God the LORD, that dwelleth between the cherubim, whose name is called on it.
7: And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart.
8: And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.
9: And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.
10: And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.
11: And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perezuzza to this day.
12: And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me?
13: So David brought not the ark home to himself to the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite.
14: And the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the house of Obededom, and all that he had.


1 CORINTHIANS 16
1: Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
2: Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
3: And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
4: And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.
5: Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia.
6: And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go.
7: For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit.
8: But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.
9: For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.
10: Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do.
11: Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren.
12: As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time.
13: Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
14: Let all your things be done with charity.
15: I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)
16: That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth.
17: I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.
18: For they have refreshed my spirit and your's: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.
19: The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.
20: All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.
21: The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand.
22: If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
23: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
24: My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
