1 H7458 Then there was a famine H3117 in the days H1732 of David H7969 three H8141 years H8141 , year H310 after H8141 year H1732 ; and David H1245 enquired [H8762] H6440 of H3068 the LORD H3068 . And the LORD H559 answered [H8799] H7586 , It is for Saul H1818 , and for his bloody H1004 house H4191 , because he slew [H8689] H1393 the Gibeonites.
2 H4428 And the king H7121 called [H8799] H1393 the Gibeonites H559 , and said [H8799] H1393 unto them; (now the Gibeonites H1121 were not of the children H3478 of Israel H3499 , but of the remnant H567 of the Amorites H1121 ; and the children H3478 of Israel H7650 had sworn [H8738] H7586 unto them: and Saul H1245 sought [H8762] H5221 to slay [H8687] H7065 them in his zeal [H8763] H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel H3063 and Judah.)
3 H1732 Wherefore David H559 said [H8799] H1393 unto the Gibeonites H6213 , What shall I do [H8799] H3722 for you? and wherewith shall I make the atonement [H8762] H1288 , that ye may bless [H8761] H5159 the inheritance H3068 of the LORD?
4 H1393 And the Gibeonites H559 said [H8799] H3701 unto him, We will have no silver H2091 nor gold H5973 of H7586 Saul H1004 , nor of his house H4191 ; neither for us shalt thou kill [H8687] H376 any man H3478 in Israel H559 . And he said [H8799] H559 , What ye shall say [H8802] H6213 , that will I do [H8799] for you.
5 H559 And they answered [H8799] H4428 the king H376 , The man H3615 that consumed [H8765] H1819 us, and that devised [H8765] H8045 against us that we should be destroyed [H8738] H3320 from remaining [H8692] H1366 in any of the coasts H3478 of Israel,
6 H7651 Let seven H582 men H1121 of his sons H5414 be delivered [H8714] H3363 unto us, and we will hang them up [H8689] H3068 unto the LORD H1390 in Gibeah H7586 of Saul H3068 , whom the LORD H972 did choose H4428 . And the king H559 said [H8799] H5414 , I will give [H8799] them .
7 H4428 But the king H2550 spared [H8799] H4648 Mephibosheth H1121 , the son H3083 of Jonathan H1121 the son H7586 of Saul H3068 , because of the LORD'S H7621 oath H1732 that was between them, between David H3083 and Jonathan H1121 the son H7586 of Saul.
8 H4428 But the king H3947 took [H8799] H8147 the two H1121 sons H7532 of Rizpah H1323 the daughter H345 of Aiah H3205 , whom she bare [H8804] H7586 unto Saul H764 , Armoni H4648 and Mephibosheth H2568 ; and the five H1121 sons H4324 of Michal H1323 the daughter H7586 of Saul H3205 , whom she brought up [H8804] H5741 for Adriel H1121 the son H1271 of Barzillai H4259 the Meholathite:
9 H5414 And he delivered [H8799] H3027 them into the hands H1393 of the Gibeonites H3363 , and they hanged [H8686] H2022 them in the hill H6440 before H3068 the LORD H5307 : and they fell [H8799] H7651 all seven [H8675] H7659 H3162 together H4191 , and were put to death [H8717] H3117 in the days H7105 of harvest H7223 , in the first H8462 days, in the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.
10 H7532 And Rizpah H1323 the daughter H345 of Aiah H3947 took [H8799] H8242 sackcloth H5186 , and spread [H8686] H6697 it for her upon the rock H8462 , from the beginning H7105 of harvest H4325 until water H5413 dropped [H8738] H8064 upon them out of heaven H5414 , and suffered [H8804] H5775 neither the birds H8064 of the air H5117 to rest [H8800] H3119 on them by day H2416 , nor the beasts H7704 of the field H3915 by night.
11 H5046 And it was told [H8714] H1732 David H7532 what Rizpah H1323 the daughter H345 of Aiah H6370 , the concubine H7586 of Saul H6213 , had done [H8804] .
12 H1732 And David H3212 went [H8799] H3947 and took [H8799] H6106 the bones H7586 of Saul H6106 and the bones H3083 of Jonathan H1121 his son H1167 from the men H3003 of Jabeshgilead H1568 H1589 , which had stolen [H8804] H7339 them from the street H1052 of Bethshan H6430 , where the Philistines H8511 had hanged [H8804] [H8675] H8518 [H8804] H3117 them, when H6430 the Philistines H5221 had slain [H8687] H7586 Saul H1533 in Gilboa:
13 H5927 And he brought up [H8686] H6106 from thence the bones H7586 of Saul H6106 and the bones H3083 of Jonathan H1121 his son H622 ; and they gathered [H8799] H6106 the bones H3363 of them that were hanged [H8716] .
14 H6106 And the bones H7586 of Saul H3083 and Jonathan H1121 his son H6912 buried [H8799] H776 they in the country H1144 of Benjamin H6762 in Zelah H6913 , in the sepulchre H7027 of Kish H1 his father H6213 : and they performed [H8799] H4428 all that the king H6680 commanded [H8765] H310 . And after H430 that God H6279 was intreated [H8735] H776 for the land.
15 H6430 Moreover the Philistines H4421 had yet war H3478 again with Israel H1732 ; and David H3381 went down [H8799] H5650 , and his servants H3898 with him, and fought [H8735] H6430 against the Philistines H1732 : and David H5774 waxed faint [H8799] .
16 H3430 And Ishbibenob H3211 , which was of the sons H7497 of the giant H4948 , the weight H7013 of whose spear H7969 weighed three H3967 hundred H5178 shekels of brass H4948 in weight H2296 , he being girded [H8803] H2319 with a new H559 sword, thought [H8799] H5221 to have slain [H8687] H1732 David.
17 H52 But Abishai H1121 the son H6870 of Zeruiah H5826 succoured [H8799] H5221 him, and smote [H8686] H6430 the Philistine H4191 , and killed [H8686] H582 him. Then the men H1732 of David H7650 sware [H8738] H559 unto him, saying [H8800] H3318 , Thou shalt go [H8799] H4421 no more out with us to battle H3518 , that thou quench [H8762] H5216 not the light H3478 of Israel.
18 H310 And it came to pass after this H4421 , that there was again a battle H6430 with the Philistines H1359 at Gob H5444 : then Sibbechai H2843 the Hushathite H5221 slew [H8689] H5593 Saph H3211 , which was of the sons H7497 of the giant.
19 H4421 And there was again a battle H1359 in Gob H6430 with the Philistines H445 , where Elhanan H1121 the son H3296 of Jaareoregim H1022 , a Bethlehemite H5221 , slew [H8686] H1555 the brother of Goliath H1663 the Gittite H6086 , the staff H2595 of whose spear H707 was like a weaver's [H8802] H4500 beam.
20 H4421 And there was yet a battle H1661 in Gath H376 , where was a man H4067 of great stature [H8675] H4055 H3027 , that had on every hand H8337 six H676 fingers H7272 , and on every foot H8337 six H676 toes H702 , four H6242 and twenty H4557 in number H3205 ; and he also was born [H8795] H7497 to the giant.
21 H2778 And when he defied [H8762] H3478 Israel H3083 , Jonathan H1121 the son H8092 of Shimea H251 the brother H1732 of David H5221 slew [H8686] him.
