“And Abishai the brother of Joab, he was chief of the three: for lifting up his spear against three hundred, he slew them, and had a name among the three.”
King James Version (KJV)

11:19 Shall I drink the blood, &c. - It put him into the utmostconfusion, to think three brave men should hazard their lives, tofetch water for him. In his account, it turns the water into blood.It is to the honour of great men, not to be prodigal of the blood ofthose they employ.
11:21 Attained not - He did not equal them.
