Hebrew - Abishai

A son of Zeruiah, David’s sister, brother of Joab and Asahel, one of the bravest of David’s mighty men, 1 Chronicles 2:16, and always faithful to his royal uncle. He went with him alone to the tent of Saul, 1 Samuel 26:7-11; and was a leader in the war with Ish-bosheth, 2 Samuel 2.18,24, in the war with the Edomites, 1 Chronicles 18:12,13, and with the Syrians and Ammonites, 2 Samuel 10:10. In a battle with the Philistines, he rescued David, and slew Ishbi-benob the giant, 2 Samuel 21:16,17. He lifted up his spear against three hundred, and slew them, 2 Samuel 23:18; and was with David in the affairs of Shimei, Absalom, and Sheb, 2 Samuel 16:9 18:2 20:6,7.
