1 H310 And it came to pass after H4194 the death H7586 of Saul, H1732 when David H7725 was returned H5221 from the slaughter H6002 of the Amalekites, H1732 and David H3427 had abode H8147 two H3117 days H6860 in Ziklag;
2 H7992 it came to pass on the third H3117 day, H376 that, behold, a man H935 came H4264 out of the camp H7586 from Saul, H899 with his clothes H7167 rent, H127 and earth H7218 upon his head: H935 and so it was, when he came H1732 to David, H5307 that he fell H776 to the earth, H7812 and did obeisance.
3 H1732 And David H559 said H935 unto him, From whence comest H559 thou? And he said H4264 unto him, Out of the camp H3478 of Israel H4422 am I escaped.
4 H1732 And David H559 said H4100 unto him, How H1697 went the matter? H5046 I pray thee, tell H559 me. And he answered, H5971 The people H5127 are fled H4421 from the battle, H7235 and many H5971 of the people H5307 also are fallen H4191 and dead; H7586 and Saul H3083 and Jonathan H1121 his son H4191 are dead also.
5 H1732 And David H559 said H5288 unto the young man H5046 that told H3045 him, How knowest H7586 thou that Saul H3083 and Jonathan H1121 his son H4191 are dead?
6 H5288 And the young man H5046 that told H559 him said, H7136 As I happened H7122 by chance H2022 upon mount H1533 Gilboa, H7586 behold, Saul H8172 was leaning H2595 upon his spear; H7393 and, lo, the chariots H1167 and the horsemen H1692 followed hard after him.
7 H6437 And when he looked H310 behind H7200 him, he saw H7121 me, and called H559 unto me. And I answered, Here am I.
9 H559 And he said H5975 unto me, Stand, H4191 I pray thee, beside me, and slay H7661 me; for anguish H270 hath taken H5315 hold of me, because my life is yet whole in me.
10 H5975 So I stood H4191 beside him, and slew H3045 him, because I was sure H2421 that he could not live H310 after H5307 that he was fallen: H3947 and I took H5145 the crown H7218 that was upon his head, H685 and the bracelet H2220 that was on his arm, H935 and have brought H113 them hither unto my lord.
11 H1732 Then David H2388 took hold H899 on his clothes, H7167 and rent H582 them; and likewise all the men that were with him:
12 H5594 and they mourned, H1058 and wept, H6684 and fasted H6153 until even, H7586 for Saul, H3083 and for Jonathan H1121 his son, H5971 and for the people H3068 of Jehovah, H1004 and for the house H3478 of Israel; H5307 because they were fallen H2719 by the sword.
13 H1732 And David H559 said H5288 unto the young man H5046 that told H559 him, Whence art thou? And he answered, H1121 I am the son H376 of a sojourner, H6003 an Amalekite.
14 H1732 And David H559 said H3372 unto him, How wast thou not afraid H7971 to put forth H3027 thy hand H7843 to destroy H3068 Jehovah's H4899 anointed?
15 H1732 And David H7121 called H259 one H5288 of the young men, H559 and said, H5066 Go near, H6293 and fall H5221 upon him. And he smote H4191 him, so that he died.
16 H1732 And David H559 said H1818 unto him, Thy blood H7218 be upon thy head; H6310 for thy mouth H6030 hath testified H559 against thee, saying, H4191 I have slain H3068 Jehovah's H4899 anointed.
17 H1732 And David H6969 lamented H7015 with this lamentation H7586 over Saul H3083 and over Jonathan H1121 his son
18 H559 (and he bade H3925 them teach H1121 the children H3063 of Judah H7198 the song of the bow: H3789 behold, it is written H5612 in the book H3477 of Jashar):
19 H6643 Thy glory, H3478 O Israel, H2491 is slain H1116 upon thy high places! H1368 How are the mighty H5307 fallen!
20 H5046 Tell H1661 it not in Gath, H1319 Publish H2351 it not in the streets H831 of Ashkelon; H1323 Lest the daughters H6430 of the Philistines H8055 rejoice, H1323 Lest the daughters H6189 of the uncircumcised H5937 triumph.
21 H2022 Ye mountains H1533 of Gilboa, H2919 Let there be no dew H4306 nor rain H7704 upon you, neither fields H8641 of offerings: H4043 For there the shield H1368 of the mighty H1602 was vilely cast away, H4043 The shield H7586 of Saul, H4899 not anointed H8081 with oil.
22 H1818 From the blood H2491 of the slain, H2459 from the fat H1368 of the mighty, H7198 The bow H3083 of Jonathan H7734 turned H268 not back, H2719 And the sword H7586 of Saul H7725 returned H7387 not empty.
23 H7586 Saul H3083 and Jonathan H157 were lovely H5273 and pleasant H2416 in their lives, H4194 And in their death H6504 they were not divided: H7043 They were swifter H5404 than eagles, H1396 They were stronger H738 than lions.
24 H1323 Ye daughters H3478 of Israel, H1058 weep over H7586 Saul, H3847 Who clothed H8144 you in scarlet H5730 delicately, H5927 Who put H5716 ornaments H2091 of gold H3830 upon your apparel.
25 H1368 How are the mighty H5307 fallen H8432 in the midst H4421 of the battle! H3083 Jonathan H2491 is slain H1116 upon thy high places.
26 H6887 I am distressed H251 for thee, my brother H3083 Jonathan: H3966 Very H5276 pleasant H160 hast thou been unto me: Thy love H6381 to me was wonderful, H160 Passing the love H802 of women.
