    King James Bible - 1 Chronicles 12:8

    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;

    World English Bible

    Of the Gadites there separated themselves to David to the stronghold in the wilderness, mighty
    men of valor, men trained for war, that could handle shield and spear; whose faces were like the faces of lions, and they were as swift as the roes on the mountains;

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Chronicles 12:8

    From Gaddi also there went
    over to David, when he lay hid in the wilderness most valiant men, and excellent warriors, holding shield and spear: whose faces were like the faces of a lion, and they were swift like the roebucks on the mountains.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And of the Gadites there separated themselves to David in the hold in 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;

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:8

    También de los de Gad se huyeron a David, estando en la fortaleza en el desierto, muy valientes hombres de guerra para pelear, puestos en orden con escudo y pavés; sus rostros como rostros de leones, y ligeros como las cabras monteses.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 12:8

    Verse 8. And were as swift as the roes] That swiftness was considered to be a grand accomplishment in a warrior, appears from all ancient writings which treat of
    military affairs.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. And of the Gadites there separated themselves unto
    David, into the hold to the wilderness , etc.] Men of the tribe of Gad, who lived on the other side Jordan; these separated themselves from the rest of their tribe, from their families and dwellings, and from the government of Saul, and came over to David, and joined him either when he was in some strong hold in the wilderness of Ziph, or Maon, ( 1 Samuel 23:14,24,25), or, as some think, when he was at Ziklag, in the hold there, said to be in the wilderness of Judah: men of might, and men of war, fit for the battle, that could handle shield and buckler ; warlike, valiant, and courageous men, well skilled in military discipline: whose faces were like the face of lions; bold, stern, and fierce.

    The philosopher observes f77 , that of all creatures the lion most resembles a man, having a great mouth, a square face and forehead, large eye brows, etc. and were as swift as the roes upon the mountains ; which are remarkable for their swiftness on the mountains, (see Song of Solomon 2:17 8:14).

    Aelianus speaks of one sort of them that run as swift as a tempest. These Gadites, as with their undaunted looks and courage, intimidated their enemies, and put them to flight, so they were swift to pursue them, and overtake them.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-22 - Here is an account of those who appeared and acted as David's friends while he was persecuted. No difficulties or dangers should keep the sinner from coming to the Savior, nor drive the believer from the pat of duty. Those who break through, and overcome in these attempts, wil find abundant recompence. From the words of Amasai we may learn how to testify our affection and allegiance to the Lord Jesus; his we must be throughly; on his side we must be forward to appear and act. If we ar under the influence of the Spirit, we shall desire to have our lo among them, and to declare ourselves on their side; if in faith an love we embrace the cause of Christ, he will receive, employ, an advance us.
