Now it cameH1961 to pass afterH310 the deathH4194 of Saul,H7586 when DavidH1732 was returnedH7725 from the slaughterH5221 of the Amalekites,H6003 and DavidH1732 had stayedH3427 twoH8147 daysH3117 in Ziklag;H6860
It cameH1961 even to pass on the thirdH7992 day,H3117 that, behold,H2009 a manH376 cameH935 out of the campH4264 from SaulH7586 with his clothesH899 rent,H7167 and earthH127 on his head:H7218 and so it was, when he cameH935 to David,H1732 that he fellH5307 to the earth,H776 and did obeisance.H7812
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to him, From whereH335 H2088 comeH935 you? And he saidH559 to him, Out of the campH4264 of IsraelH3478 am I escaped.H4422
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to him, HowH4100 wentH1961 the matter?H1697 I prayH4994 you, tellH5046 me. And he answered,H559 That the peopleH5971 are fledH5127 from the battle,H4421 and manyH7235 of the peopleH5971 alsoH1571 are fallenH5307 and dead;H4191 and SaulH7586 and JonathanH3083 his sonH1121 are deadH4191 also.H1571
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to the youngH5288 man that toldH5046 him, HowH349 knowH3045 you that SaulH7586 and JonathanH3083 his sonH1121 be dead?H4191
And the youngH5288 man that toldH5046 him said,H559 As I happenedH7136 by chanceH7122 on mountH2022 Gilboa,H1533 behold,H2009 SaulH7586 leanedH8172 on his spear;H2595 and, see,H2009 the chariotsH7393 and horsemenH1167 H6571 followedH1692 hardH1692 after him.
And when he lookedH6437 behindH310 him, he sawH7200 me, and calledH7121 to me. And I answered,H559 HereH2009 am I.
And he saidH559 to me, WhoH4310 are you? And I answeredH559 him, I am an Amalekite.H6003
He saidH559 to me again, Stand,H5975 I prayH4994 you, on me, and slayH4191 me: for anguishH7661 is comeH270 on me, becauseH3588 my lifeH5315 is yetH5750 wholeH3605 in me.
So I stoodH5975 on him, and slewH4191 him, becauseH3588 I was sureH3045 that he could not liveH2421 afterH310 that he was fallen:H5307 and I tookH3947 the crownH5145 that was on his head,H7218 and the braceletH685 that was onH5921 his arm,H2220 and have broughtH935 them here to my lord.H113
Then DavidH1732 took holdH2388 on his clothes,H899 and rentH7167 them; and likewiseH1571 allH3605 the menH582 that were with him:
And they mourned,H5594 and wept,H1058 and fastedH6684 untilH5704 even,H6153 for Saul,H7586 and for JonathanH3083 his son,H1121 and for the peopleH5971 of the LORD,H3068 and for the houseH1004 of Israel;H3478 becauseH3588 they were fallenH5307 by the sword.H2719
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to the youngH5288 man that toldH5046 him, From whereH335 H2088 are you? And he answered,H559 I am the sonH1121 of a stranger,H376 H1616 an Amalekite.H6003
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to him, HowH349 were you not afraidH3372 to stretchH7971 forth your handH3027 to destroyH7843 the LORD'sH3068 anointed?H4899
And DavidH1732 calledH7121 oneH259 of the youngH5288 men, and said,H559 GoH5066 near,H5066 and fallH6293 on him. And he smoteH5221 him that he died.H4191
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to him, Your bloodH1818 be on your head;H7218 for your mouthH6310 has testifiedH6030 against you, saying,H559 I have slainH4191 the LORD'sH3068 anointed.H4899
And DavidH1732 lamentedH6969 with thisH2063 lamentationH7015 overH5921 SaulH7586 and overH5921 JonathanH3083 his son:H1121
(Also he badeH559 them teachH3925 the childrenH1121 of JudahH3063 the use of the bow:H7198 behold,H2009 it is writtenH3789 in the bookH5612 of Jasher.H3477)
The beautyH6643 of IsraelH3478 is slainH2491 on your highH1116 places: howH349 are the mightyH1368 fallen!H5307
TellH5046 it not in Gath,H1661 publishH1319 it not in the streetsH2351 of Askelon;H831 lestH6435 the daughtersH1323 of the PhilistinesH6430 rejoice,H8055 lestH6435 the daughtersH1323 of the uncircumcisedH6189 triumph.H5937
You mountainsH2022 of Gilboa,H1533 let there be noH408 dew,H2919 neitherH408 let there be rain,H4306 on you, nor fieldsH7704 of offerings:H8641 for thereH8033 the shieldH4043 of the mightyH1368 is vilelyH1602 castH1602 away, the shieldH4043 of Saul,H7586 as though he had not been anointedH4899 with oil.H8081
From the bloodH1818 of the slain,H2491 from the fatH2459 of the mighty,H1368 the bowH7198 of JonathanH3083 turnedH7734 not back,H268 and the swordH2719 of SaulH7586 returnedH7725 not empty.H7387
SaulH7586 and JonathanH3083 were lovelyH157 and pleasantH5273 in their lives,H2416 and in their deathH4194 they were not divided:H6504 they were swifterH7043 than eagles,H5404 they were strongerH1396 than lions.H738
You daughtersH1323 of Israel,H3478 weepH1058 overH413 Saul,H7586 who clothedH3847 you in scarlet,H8144 with other delights,H5730 who putH5927 on ornamentsH5716 of goldH2091 on your apparel.H3830
HowH349 are the mightyH1368 fallenH5307 in the middleH8432 of the battle!H4421 O Jonathan,H3083 you were slainH2491 in your highH1116 places.
I am distressedH6887 for you, my brotherH251 Jonathan:H3083 veryH3966 pleasantH5276 have you been to me: your loveH160 to me was wonderful,H6381 passing the loveH160 of women.H802
HowH349 are the mightyH1368 fallen,H5307 and the weaponsH3627 of warH4421 perished!H6
