Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 11:22

_ _ Benaiah ... of Kabzeel — a town in the south of Judah (Joshua 15:21; Nehemiah 11:25). It is said that “he had done many acts,” though three only are mentioned as specimens of his daring energy and fearless courage.

_ _ slew two lionlike men of Moab — literally, “lions of God,” that is, great lions or champions. This gallant feat was probably achieved in David’s hostile invasion of Moab (2 Samuel 8:2).

_ _ also he went down and slew a lion in a pit in a snowy day — probably a cave into which Benaiah had taken refuge from the snowstorm, and in which he encountered a savage lion which had its lair there. In a spacious cave the achievement would be far greater than if the monster had been previously snared or cabined in a pit.
