18
But Judah approached him and said, "Sir, please let your servant speak personally to my lord. Do not be angry with your servant, for you are like Pharaoh.
19
My lord asked his servants, 'Do you have a father or a brother?'
20
and we answered my lord, 'We have an elderly father and a young brother, the child of his old age. The boy's brother is dead. He is the only one of his mother's sons left, and his father loves him.'
21
Then you said to your servants, 'Bring him to me so that I can see him.'
22
But we said to my lord, 'The boy cannot leave his father. If he were to leave, his father would die.'
23
Then you said to your servants, 'If your younger brother does not come down with you, you will not see me again.'
24
"This is what happened when we went back to your servant my father: We reported your words to him.
25
But our father said, 'Go again, and buy us some food.'
26
We told him, 'We cannot go down unless our younger brother goes with us. But if our younger brother isn't with us, we cannot see the man.'
27
Your servant my father said to us, 'You know that my wife bore me two sons.
28
One left-- I said that he must have been torn to pieces-- and I have never seen him again.
29
If you also take this one from me and anything happens to him, you will bring my gray hairs down to Sheol in sorrow.'
30
"So, if I come to your servant my father and the boy is not with us-- his life is wrapped up with the boy's life--
31
when he sees that the boy is not with us, he will die. Then your servants will have brought the gray hairs of your servant our father down to Sheol in sorrow.
32
Your servant became accountable to my father for the boy, saying, 'If I do not return him to you, I will always bear the guilt for sinning against [you,] my father.'
33
Now please let your servant remain here as my lord's slave, in place of the boy. Let him go back with his brothers.
34
For how can I go back to my father without the boy? I could not bear to see the grief that would overwhelm my father."

1
King Solomon ruled over Israel,
2
and these were his officials: Azariah son of Zadok, priest;
3
Elihoreph and Ahijah the sons of Shisha, secretaries; Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud, historian;
4
Benaiah son of Jehoiada, in charge of the army; Zadok and Abiathar, priests;
5
Azariah son of Nathan, in charge of the deputies; Zabud son of Nathan, a priest and adviser to the king;
6
Ahishar, in charge of the palace; and Adoniram son of Abda, in charge of forced labor.
7
Solomon had 12 deputies for all Israel. They provided food for the king and his household; each one made provision for one month out of the year.
8
These were their names: Ben-hur, in the hill country of Ephraim;
9
Ben-deker, in Makaz, Shaalbim, Beth-shemesh, and Elon-beth-hanan;
10
Ben-hesed, in Arubboth (he had Socoh and the whole land of Hepher);
11
Ben-abinadab, in all Naphath-dor (Taphath daughter of Solomon was his wife);
12
Baana son of Ahilud, in Taanach, Megiddo, and all Beth-shean which is beside Zarethan below Jezreel, from Beth-shean to Abel-meholah, as far as the other side of Jokmeam;
13
Ben-geber, in Ramoth-gilead (he had the villages of Jair son of Manasseh, which are in Gilead, and he had the region of Argob, which is in Bashan, 60 great cities with walls and bronze bars);
14
Ahinadab son of Iddo, [in] Mahanaim;
15
Ahimaaz, in Naphtali (he also had married a daughter of Solomon-- Basemath);
16
Baana son of Hushai, in Asher and Bealoth;
17
Jehoshaphat son of Paruah, in Issachar;
18
Shimei son of Ela, in Benjamin;
19
Geber son of Uri, in the land of Gilead, the country of Sihon king of the Amorites and of Og king of Bashan. There was one deputy in the land of Judah.
20
Judah and Israel were as numerous as the sand by the sea; [they were] eating, drinking, and rejoicing.
21
Solomon ruled over all the kingdoms from the Euphrates River to the land of the Philistines and as far as the border of Egypt. They offered tribute and served Solomon all the days of his life.
22
Solomon's provisions for one day were 150 bushels of fine flour and 300 bushels of meal,
23
10 fattened oxen, 20 range oxen, and 100 sheep, besides deer, gazelles, roebucks, and pen-fed poultry,
24
for he had dominion over everything west of the Euphrates from Tiphsah to Gaza and over all the kings west of the Euphrates. He had peace on all his surrounding borders.
25
Throughout Solomon's [reign], Judah and Israel lived in safety from Dan to Beer-sheba, each man under his own vine and his own fig tree.
26
Solomon had 40,000 stalls of horses for his chariots, and 12,000 horsemen.
27
Each of those deputies for a month in turn provided food for King Solomon and for everyone who came to King Solomon's table. They neglected nothing.
28
Each man brought the barley and the straw for the chariot teams and the other horses to the required place according to his assignment.
29
God gave Solomon wisdom, very great insight, and understanding as [vast] as the sand on the seashore.
30
Solomon's wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the people of the East, greater than all the wisdom of Egypt.
31
He was wiser than anyone-- wiser than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, Calcol, and Darda, sons of Mahol. His reputation extended to all the surrounding nations.
32
Solomon composed 3,000 proverbs, and his songs numbered 1,005.
33
He described trees, from the cedar in Lebanon to the hyssop growing out of the wall. He also taught about animals, birds, reptiles, and fish.
34
People came from everywhere, [sent] by every king on earth who had heard of his wisdom, to listen to Solomon's wisdom.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_13 12:1-40
1
The following were the men who came to David at Ziklag while he was still banned from the presence of Saul son of Kish. They were among the warriors who helped him in battle.
2
They were archers who, using either their right or left hand, could [throw] stones [with a sling] or [shoot] arrows with a bow. They were Saul's relatives from Benjamin:
3
Their chief was Ahiezer son of Shemaah the Gibeathite. Then there was his brother Joash; Jeziel and Pelet sons of Azmaveth; Beracah, Jehu the Anathothite;
4
Ishmaiah the Gibeonite, a warrior among the Thirty and [a leader] over the Thirty;Jeremiah, Jahaziel, Johanan, Jozabad the Gederathite;
5
Eluzai, Jerimoth, Bealiah, Shemariah, Shephatiah the Haruphite;
6
Elkanah, Isshiah, Azarel, Joezer, and Jashobeam, the Korahites;
7
and Joelah and Zebadiah, the sons of Jeroham from Gedor.
8
Some Gadites defected to David at his stronghold in the desert. They were fighting men, trained for battle, expert with shield and spear. Their faces were like the faces of lions, and they were as swift as gazelles on the mountains.
9
Ezer was the chief, Obadiah second, Eliab third,
10
Mishmannah fourth, Jeremiah fifth,
11
Attai sixth, Eliel seventh,
12
Johanan eighth, Elzabad ninth,
13
Jeremiah tenth, and Machbannai eleventh.
14
These Gadites were army commanders; the least of them was a match for a hundred, and the greatest of them for a thousand.
15
These are the men who crossed the Jordan in the first month when it was overflowing all its banks, and put to flight all [those in] the valleys to the east and to the west.
16
Other Benjaminites and men from Judah also went to David at the stronghold.
17
David went out to meet them and said to them, "If you have come in peace to help me, my heart will be united with you, but if you have come to betray me to my enemies even though my hands have done no wrong, may the God of our ancestors look on it and judge."
18
Then the Spirit took control of Amasai, chief of the Thirty, [and he said]: [We are] yours, David, [we are] with you, son of Jesse! Peace, peace to you, and peace to him who helps you, for your God helps you. So David received them and made them leaders of his troops.
19
Some Manassites defected to David when he went with the Philistines to fight against Saul. However, they did not help the Philistines because the Philistine rulers, following consultation, sent David away. They said, "It will be our heads if he defects to his master Saul."
20
When David went to Ziklag, some men from Manasseh defected to him: Adnah, Jozabad, Jediael, Michael, Jozabad, Elihu, and Zillethai, chiefs of thousands in Manasseh.
21
They helped David against the marauders, for they were all brave warriors and commanders in the army.
22
At that time, men came day after day to help David until there was a great army, like an army of God.
23
The numbers of the armed troops who came to David at Hebron to turn Saul's kingdom over to him, according to the LORD's word, were as follows:
24
From the Judahites: 6,800 armed troops bearing shields and spears.
25
From the Simeonites: 7,100 brave warriors ready for war.
26
From the Levites: 4,600
27
in addition to Jehoiada, leader of the house of Aaron, with 3,700 men;
28
and Zadok, a young brave warrior, with 22 commanders from his own ancestral house.
29
From the Benjaminites, the relatives of Saul: 3,000 (up to that time the majority of the Benjaminites maintained their allegiance to the house of Saul).
30
From the Ephraimites: 20,800 brave warriors who were famous men in their ancestral houses.
31
From half the tribe of Manasseh: 18,000 designated by name to come and make David king.
32
From the Issacharites, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do: 200 chiefs with all their relatives under their command.
33
From Zebulun: 50,000 who could serve in the army, trained for battle with all kinds of weapons of war, with singleness of purpose to help David.
34
From Naphtali: 1,000 commanders accompanied by 37,000 men with shield and spear.
35
From the Danites: 28,600 trained for battle.
36
From Asher: 40,000 who could serve in the army, trained for battle.
37
From across the Jordan-- from the Reubenites, Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh: 120,000 men equipped with all the military weapons of war.
38
All these warriors, lined up in battle formation, came to Hebron with wholehearted determination to make David king over all Israel. All the rest of Israel was also of one mind to make David king.
39
They were there with David for three days, eating and drinking, for their relatives had provided for them.
40
In addition, their neighbors from as far away as Issachar, Zebulun, and Naphtali came bringing food on donkeys, camels, mules, and oxen-- abundant provisions of flour, fig cakes, raisins, wine and oil, oxen, and sheep. Indeed, there was joy in Israel.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_14 11:12-17
12
He also put large shields and spears in each and every city to make them very strong. So Judah and Benjamin were his.
13
The priests and Levites from all their regions throughout Israel took their stand with Rehoboam,
14
for the Levites left their pasturelands and their possessions and went to Judah and Jerusalem, because Jeroboam and his sons refused to let them serve as priests of the LORD.
15
Jeroboam appointed his own priests for the high places, the goat-demons, and the [gold] calves he had made.
16
Those from every tribe of Israel who had determined in their hearts to seek the LORD their God followed the Levites to Jerusalem to sacrifice to the LORD God of their ancestors.
17
So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah and supported Rehoboam son of Solomon for three years, because they walked in the way of David and Solomon for three years.

There we were, binding sheaves of grain in the field. Suddenly my sheaf stood up, and your sheaves gathered around it and bowed down to my sheaf."
