  • 8 These are the names of the mighty men whom David had: Josheb-basshebeth a Tahchemonite; he was chief of the three. He wielded his spear against eight hundred whom he killed at one time.
    9 And next to him among the three mighty men was Eleazar the son of Dodo, son of Ahohi. He was with David when they defied the Philistines who were gathered there for battle, and the men of Israel withdrew.
    10 He rose and struck down the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand clung to the sword. And the LORD brought about a great victory that day, and the men returned after him only to strip the slain.
    11 And next to him was Shammah, the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines gathered together at Lehi, where there was a plot of ground full of lentils, and the men fled from the Philistines.
    12 But he took his stand in the midst of the plot and defended it and struck down the Philistines, and the LORD worked a great victory.
    13 And three of the thirty chief men went down and came about harvest time to David at the cave of Adullam, when a band of Philistines was encamped in the Valley of Rephaim.
    14 David was then in the stronghold, and the garrison of the Philistines was then at Bethlehem.
    15 And David said longingly, "Oh, that someone would give me water to drink from the well of Bethlehem that is by the gate!"
    16 Then the three mighty men broke through the camp of the Philistines and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem that was by the gate and carried and brought it to David. But he would not drink of it. He poured it out to the LORD
    17 and said, "Far be it from me, O LORD, that I should do this. Shall I drink the blood of the men who went at the risk of their lives?" Therefore he would not drink it. These things the three mighty men did.

Thinking & Understanding
David had soldiers who were completely devoted to him, and who put their lives at risk for him. It is because of soldiers like Eleazar, who fought alone until his hands grew stiff, and Shammar, who endured to the end and held the field, even after everyone else had fled, that David's army was victorious. Not only this, but their love for David was so great that they even broke through enemy lines to draw water for David, who had expressed the desire to drink water from his home town. David regarded himself as unworthy of this water, for which lives had been put at risk, and poured it out before the Lord. Like the soldiers who were devoted to him, David himself was a devoted servant, to God (vv. 8-17)

Who is God?
Vv. 10-12 God gives great victory to those who do not evade difficulty but fight to the very end for God's kingdom. Those who gain the ultimate victory are those who fight to the end. Do not be afraid or complain when everyone else has fled and you are the only one left. There is a great reward for those who remain loyal in their love for God's kingdom.

What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 15-16 For the three warriors, fulfilling David's desires was their greatest goal. How enthusiastic are we to fulfil God's desires?

Prayer
Father let our churches do mighty things for your glory.
