So the Three broke through the Philistine lines, drew some water from the well by the gate in Bethlehem, and brought it back to David. But he refused to drink it. Instead, he poured it out as an offering to the LORD. "The LORD forbid that I should drink this!" he exclaimed. "This water is as precious as the blood of these men who risked their lives to bring it to me." So David did not drink it. These are examples of the exploits of the Three.
2 SAMUEL 23:16-17 NLT
Morning view of a hilltop church located on the site of Kirjath Jearim (Kiryat Ya’arim), northwest of Jerusalem, Israel. This is the site where scholars believe the Ark of the Covenant was stored in “the house of Abinadab on the hill” during the reigns of King Saul and King David, after it was returned to the Israelites by the Philistines who had captured it in battle. (1 Samuel 7 and TimesofIsrael.com)
