Abishai, the chief of David’s thirty men (1 Chr 11:20-11:21)

“Abishai, the brother of Joab, was chief of the Thirty. With his spear he fought against three hundred men and killed them. He won a name beside the Three. He was the most renowned of the Thirty. He became their commander. But he did not attain to the Three.”

Once again, this section is word for word based on 2 Samuel, chapter 23. Abishai, the brother of Joab, and David’s nephew was the leader of the 30 great warriors. He had killed 300 men with his spear. He was the most renowned of the 30, but he never achieved the status of big 3. His name comes up all over the place with his brother who was in charge of the whole army.
