“At that time men came day after day to help David until there was a great army like an army of God.” ( 1 Chronicles 12:1-22, HCSB).
1 Chronicles 12 records the assembling of David’s army during the years that David was in hiding from King Saul.
What’s interesting about these warriors that joined up with David was that they were defectors! They changed loyalties! They transferred their allegiance!
