1 H7458 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 sought H6440 the face of H3068 Yahweh. H3068 Yahweh H559 said, H7586 "It is for Saul, H1818 and for his bloody H1004 house, H4191 because he put to death H1393 the Gibeonites."
2 H4428 The king H7121 called H1393 the Gibeonites, H559 and said H1393 to 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 H7586 to them: and Saul H1245 sought H5221 to kill H7065 them in his zeal H1121 for the children H3478 of Israel H3063 and Judah);
3 H1732 and David H559 said H1393 to the Gibeonites, H6213 "What shall I do H3722 for you? And with what shall I make atonement, H1288 that you may bless H5159 the inheritance H3068 of Yahweh?"
4 H1393 The Gibeonites H559 said H5973 to him, "It is no matter of H3701 silver H2091 or gold H7586 between us and Saul, H1004 or his house; H376 neither is it for us to put any man H4191 to death H3478 in Israel." H559 He said, H559 "Whatever you say, H6213 that will I do for you."
5 H559 They said H4428 to the king, H376 "The man H3615 who consumed H1819 us, and who devised H8045 against us, that we should be destroyed H3320 from remaining H1366 in any of the borders H3478 of Israel,
6 H7651 let seven H582 men H1121 of his sons H5414 be delivered H3363 to us, and we will hang them up H3068 to Yahweh H1390 in Gibeah H7586 of Saul, H972 the chosen H3068 of Yahweh." H4428 The king H559 said, H5414 "I will give them."
7 H4428 But the king H2550 spared H4648 Mephibosheth, H1121 the son H3083 of Jonathan H1121 the son H7586 of Saul, H3068 because of Yahweh'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 H8147 the two H1121 sons H7532 of Rizpah H1323 the daughter H345 of Aiah, H3205 whom she bore H7586 to Saul, H764 Armoni H4648 and Mephibosheth; H2568 and the five H1121 sons H4324 of Michal H1323 the daughter H7586 of Saul, H3205 whom she bore H5741 to Adriel H1121 the son H1271 of Barzillai H4259 the Meholathite.
9 H5414 He delivered H3027 them into the hands H1393 of the Gibeonites, H3363 and they hanged H2022 them in the mountain H6440 before H3068 Yahweh, H7651 and all seven H5307 of them fell H3162 together. H4191 They were put to death H3117 in the days H7105 of harvest, H7223 in the first H8462 days, at the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.
10 H7532 Rizpah H1323 the daughter H345 of Aiah H3947 took H8242 sackcloth, H5186 and spread H6697 it for her on the rock, H8462 from the beginning H7105 of harvest H4325 until water H5413 was poured H8064 on them from the sky. H5414 She allowed H5775 neither the birds H8064 of the sky H5117 to rest H3119 on them by day, H2416 nor the animals H7704 of the field H3915 by night.
11 H5046 It was told H1732 David H7532 what Rizpah H1323 the daughter H345 of Aiah, H6370 the concubine H7586 of Saul, H6213 had done.
12 H1732 David H3212 went H3947 and took H6106 the bones H7586 of Saul H6106 and the bones H3083 of Jonathan H1121 his son H1167 from the men H3003 of Jabesh Gilead, H1589 who had stolen H7339 them from the street H1052 of Beth Shan, H6430 where the Philistines H8511 had hanged H3117 them, in the day H6430 that the Philistines H5221 killed H7586 Saul H1533 in Gilboa;
13 H5927 and he brought up H6106 from there the bones H7586 of Saul H6106 and the bones H3083 of Jonathan H1121 his son: H622 and they gathered H6106 the bones H3363 of those who were hanged.
14 H6912 They buried H6106 the bones H7586 of Saul H3083 and Jonathan H1121 his son H776 in the country H1144 of Benjamin H6762 in Zela, H6913 in the tomb H7027 of Kish H1 his father: H6213 and they performed H4428 all that the king H6680 commanded. H310 After H430 that God H6279 was entreated H776 for the land.
15 H6430 The Philistines H4421 had war H3478 again with Israel; H1732 and David H3381 went down, H5650 and his servants H3898 with him, and fought H6430 against the Philistines. H1732 David H5774 grew faint;
16 H3430 and Ishbibenob, H3211 who was of the sons H7497 of the giant, H4948 the weight H7013 of whose spear H7969 was three H3967 hundred H5178 shekels of brass H4948 in weight, H2296 he being armed H2319 with a new H559 sword, thought H5221 to have slain H1732 David.
17 H52 But Abishai H1121 the son H6870 of Zeruiah H5826 helped H5221 him, and struck H6430 the Philistine, H4191 and killed H582 him. Then the men H1732 of David H7650 swore H559 to him, saying, H3318 "You shall go H4421 no more out with us to battle, H3518 that you don't quench H5216 the lamp H3478 of Israel."
18 H310 It came to pass after this, H4421 that there was again war H6430 with the Philistines H1359 at Gob: H5444 then Sibbecai H2843 the Hushathite H5221 killed H5593 Saph, H3211 who was of the sons H7497 of the giant.
19 H4421 There was again war H6430 with the Philistines H1359 at Gob; H445 and Elhanan H1121 the son H3296 of Jaareoregim H1022 the Bethlehemite H5221 killed H1555 Goliath H1663 the Gittite's H6086 brother, the staff H2595 of whose spear H707 was like a weaver's H4500 beam.
20 H4421 There was again war H1661 at Gath, H376 where there was a man H4067 of great stature, H3027 who 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 H7497 to the giant.
21 H2778 When he defied H3478 Israel, H3083 Jonathan H1121 the son H8092 of Shimei, H1732 David's H251 brother, H5221 killed him.
