(2sa 1:1) Now it came to pass after the death of Saul, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, and David had abode two days in Ziklag;
(2sa 1:2) It came even to pass on the third day, that, behold, a man came out of the camp from Saul with his clothes rent, and earth upon his head: and {so} it was, when he came to David, that he fell to the earth, and did obeisance.
(2sa 1:3) And David said unto him, From whence comest thou? And he said unto him, Out of the camp of Israel am I escaped.
(2sa 1:4) And David said unto him, How went the matter? I pray thee, tell me. And he answered, That the people are fled from the battle, and many of the people also are fallen and dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also.
(2sa 1:5) And David said unto the young man that told him, How knowest thou that Saul and Jonathan his son be dead?
(2sa 1:6) And the young man that told him said, As I happened by chance upon mount Gilboa, behold, Saul leaned upon his spear; and, lo, the chariots and horsemen followed hard after him.
(2sa 1:7) And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called unto me. And I answered, Here {am} I.
(2sa 1:8) And he said unto me, Who {art} thou? And I answered him, I {am} an Amalekite.
(2sa 1:9) He said unto me again, Stand, I pray thee, upon me, and slay me: for anguish is come upon me, because my life {is} yet whole in me.
(2sa 1:10) So I stood upon him, and slew him, because I was sure that he could not live after that he was fallen: and I took the crown that {was} upon his head, and the bracelet that {was} on his arm, and have brought them hither unto my lord.
(2sa 1:11) Then David took hold on his clothes, and rent them; and likewise all the men that {were} with him:
(2sa 1:12) And they mourned, and wept, and fasted until even, for Saul, and for Jonathan his son, and for the people of the Lord, and for the house of Israel; because they were fallen by the sword.
(2sa 1:13) And David said unto the young man that told him, Whence {art} thou? And he answered, I {am} the son of a stranger, an Amalekite.
(2sa 1:14) And David said unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the Lord's anointed?
(2sa 1:15) And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, {and} fall upon him. And he smote him that he died.
(2sa 1:16) And David said unto him, Thy blood {be} upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the Lord's anointed.
(2sa 1:17) And David lamented with this lamentation over Saul and over Jonathan his son:
(2sa 1:18) (Also he bade them teach the children of Judah {the use of} the bow: behold, {it is} written in the book of Jasher.)
(2sa 1:19) The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mighty fallen!
(2sa 1:20) Tell {it} not in Gath, publish {it} not in the streets of Askelon; lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph.
(2sa 1:21) Ye mountains of Gilboa, {let there be} no dew, neither {let there be} rain, upon you, nor fields of offerings: for there the shield of the mighty is vilely cast away, the shield of Saul, {as though he had} not {been} anointed with oil.
(2sa 1:22) From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan turned not back, and the sword of Saul returned not empty.
(2sa 1:23) Saul and Jonathan {were} lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
(2sa 1:24) Ye daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you in scarlet, with {other} delights, who put on ornaments of gold upon your apparel.
(2sa 1:25) How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle! O Jonathan, {thou wast} slain in thine high places.
(2sa 1:26) I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.
(2sa 1:27) How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!
