The Holy Bible - The First Book of the Chronicles, Chapter 12 (Latin)
1Now 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.
2They 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.
3The 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.
4And Ismaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty man among the thirty, and over the thirty; and Jeremiah, and Jahaziel, and Johanan, and Josabad the Gederathite,
5Eluzai, and Jerimoth, and Bealiah, and Shemariah, and Shephatiah the Haruphite,
6Elkanah, and Jesiah, and Azareel, and Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korhites,
7And Joelah, and Zebadiah, the sons of Jeroham of Gedor.
8And 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;
9Ezer the first, Obadiah the second, Eliab the third,
10Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth,
11Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh,
12Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth,
13Jeremiah the tenth, Machbanai the eleventh.
14These were of the sons of Gad, captains of the host: one of the least was over an hundred, and the greatest over a thousand.
15These 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.
16And there came of the children of Benjamin and Judah to the hold unto David.
17And 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.
18Then 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.
19And 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.
20As 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.
21And they helped David against the band of the rovers: for they were all mighty men of valour, and were captains in the host.
22For at that time day by day there came to David to help him, until it was a great host, like the host of God.
23And 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.
24The children of Judah that bare shield and spear were six thousand and eight hundred, ready armed to the war.
25Of the children of Simeon, mighty men of valour for the war, seven thousand and one hundred.
26Of the children of Levi four thousand and six hundred.
27And Jehoiada was the leader of the Aaronites, and with him were three thousand and seven hundred;
28And Zadok, a young man mighty of valour, and of his father's house twenty and two captains.
29And 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.
30And of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand and eight hundred, mighty men of valour, famous throughout the house of their fathers.
31And of the half tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, which were expressed by name, to come and make David king.
32And 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.
33Of 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.
34And of Naphtali a thousand captains, and with them with shield and spear thirty and seven thousand.
35And of the Danites expert in war twenty and eight thousand and six hundred.
36And of Asher, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, forty thousand.
37And 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.
38All 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.
39And there they were with David three days, eating and drinking: for their brethren had prepared for them.
40Moreover 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.
1hii quoque venerunt ad David in Siceleg cum adhuc fugeret Saul filium Cis qui erant fortissimi et egregii pugnatores

14hii de filiis Gad principes exercitus novissimus centum militibus praeerat et maximus mille
15isti sunt qui transierunt Iordanem mense primo quando inundare consuevit super ripas suas et omnes fugaverunt qui morabantur in vallibus ad orientalem plagam et occidentalem
16venerunt autem et de Beniamin et de Iuda ad praesidium in quo morabatur David
17egressusque est David obviam eis et ait si pacifice venistis ad me ut auxiliemini mihi cor meum iungatur vobis si autem insidiamini mihi pro adversariis meis cum ego iniquitatem in manibus non habeam videat Deus patrum nostrorum et iudicet
18spiritus vero induit Amessai principem inter triginta et ait tui sumus o David et tecum fili Isai pax pax tibi et pax adiutoribus tuis te enim adiuvat Deus tuus suscepit ergo eos David et constituit principes turmae
19porro de Manasse transfugerunt ad David quando veniebat cum Philisthim adversum Saul ut pugnaret et non dimicavit cum eis quia inito consilio remiserunt eum principes Philisthinorum dicentes periculo capitis nostri revertetur ad dominum suum Saul
20quando igitur reversus est in Siceleg transfugerunt ad eum de Manasse Ednas et Iozabad et Iedihel et Michahel et Iozabad et Heliu et Salathi principes milium in Manasse
21hii praebuerunt auxilium David adversum latrunculos omnes enim erant viri fortissimi et facti sunt principes in exercitu
22sed et per singulos dies veniebant ad David ad auxiliandum ei usque dum fieret grandis numerus quasi exercitus Dei
23iste quoque est numerus principum exercitus qui venerunt ad David cum esset in Hebron ut transferrent regnum Saul ad eum iuxta verbum Domini

28Sadoc etiam puer egregiae indolis et domus patris eius principes viginti duo
29de filiis autem Beniamin fratribus Saul tria milia magna enim pars eorum adhuc sequebatur domum Saul
30porro de filiis Ephraim viginti milia octingenti fortissimi robore viri nominati in cognationibus suis
31et ex dimidia parte tribus Manasse decem et octo milia singuli per nomina sua venerunt ut constituerent regem David
32de filiis quoque Isachar viri eruditi qui norant singula tempora ad praecipiendum quid facere deberet Israhel principes ducenti omnis autem reliqua tribus eorum consilium sequebatur
33porro de Zabulon qui egrediebantur ad proelium et stabant in acie instructi armis bellicis quinquaginta milia venerunt in auxilium non in corde duplici
34et de Nepthali principes mille et cum eis instructa clypeo et hasta triginta septem milia

38omnes isti viri bellatores et expediti ad pugnandum corde perfecto venerunt in Hebron ut constituerent regem David super universum Israhel sed et omnes reliqui ex Israhel uno corde erant ut rex fieret David
39fueruntque ibi apud David tribus diebus comedentes et bibentes praeparaverunt enim eis fratres sui
40sed et qui iuxta eos erant usque ad Isachar et Zabulon et Nepthalim adferebant panes in asinis et camelis et mulis et bubus ad vescendum farinam palatas uvam passam vinum oleum boves arietes ad omnem copiam gaudium quippe erat in Israhel
