2 Samuel 1

Now it came to pass after
<0310>
the death
<04194>
of Saul
<07586>_,
when David
<01732>
was returned
<07725> (8804)
from the slaughter
<05221> (8687)
of the Amalekites
<06002>_,
and David
<01732>
had abode
<03427> (8799)
two
<08147>
days
<03117>
in Ziklag
<06860>_;
It came even to pass on the third
<07992>
day
<03117>_,
that, behold, a man
<0376>
came
<0935> (8802)
out of the camp
<04264>
from Saul
<07586>
with his clothes
<0899>
rent
<07167> (8803)_,
and earth
<0127>
upon his head
<07218>_:
and [so] it was, when he came
<0935> (8800)
to David
<01732>_,
that he fell
<05307> (8799)
to the earth
<0776>_,
and did obeisance
<07812> (8691)_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, From whence comest
<0935> (8799)
thou? And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Out of the camp
<04264>
of Israel
<03478>
am I escaped
<04422> (8738)_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, How
<04100>
went the matter
<01697>_?
I pray thee, tell
<05046> (8685)
me. And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
That the people
<05971>
are fled
<05127> (8804)
from the battle
<04421>_,
and many
<07235> (8687)
of the people
<05971>
also are fallen
<05307> (8804)
and dead
<04191> (8799)_;
and Saul
<07586>
and Jonathan
<03083>
his son
<01121>
are dead
<04191> (8804)
also. {How...: Heb. What was, etc}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the young man
<05288>
that told
<05046> (8688)
him, How knowest
<03045> (8804)
thou that Saul
<07586>
and Jonathan
<03083>
his son
<01121>
be dead
<04191> (8804)_?
And the young man
<05288>
that told
<05046> (8688)
him said
<0559> (8799)_,
As I happened
<07136> (8738)
by chance
<07122> (8736)
upon mount
<02022>
Gilboa
<01533>_,
behold, Saul
<07586>
leaned
<08172> (8737)
upon his spear
<02595>_;
and, lo, the chariots
<07393>
and horsemen
<01167> <06571>
followed hard
<01692> (8689)
after him.
And when he looked
<06437> (8799)
behind
<0310>
him, he saw
<07200> (8799)
me, and called
<07121> (8799)
unto me. And I answered
<0559> (8799)_,
Here [am] I. {Here...: Heb. Behold me}
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto me, Who [art] thou? And I answered
<0559> (8799)
him, I [am] an Amalekite
<06003>_.
He said
<0559> (8799)
unto me again, Stand
<05975> (8798)_,
I pray thee, upon me, and slay
<04191> (8786)
me: for anguish
<07661>
is come
<0270> (8804)
upon me, because my life
<05315>
[is] yet whole in me. {anguish...: or, my coat of mail (or, my embroidered coat) hindereth me, that my, etc}
So I stood
<05975> (8799)
upon him, and slew
<04191> (8787)
him, because I was sure
<03045> (8804)
that he could not live
<02421> (8799)
after
<0310>
that he was fallen
<05307> (8800)_:
and I took
<03947> (8799)
the crown
<05145>
that [was] upon his head
<07218>_,
and the bracelet
<0685>
that [was] on his arm
<02220>_,
and have brought
<0935> (8686)
them hither unto my lord
<0113>_.
Then David
<01732>
took hold
<02388> (8686)
on his clothes
<0899>_,
and rent
<07167> (8799)
them; and likewise all the men
<0582>
that [were] with him:
And they mourned
<05594> (8799)_,
and wept
<01058> (8799)_,
and fasted
<06684> (8799)
until even
<06153>_,
for Saul
<07586>_,
and for Jonathan
<03083>
his son
<01121>_,
and for the people
<05971>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and for the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_;
because they were fallen
<05307> (8804)
by the sword
<02719>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the young man
<05288>
that told
<05046> (8688)
him, Whence [art] thou? And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am] the son
<01121>
of a stranger
<0376> <01616>_,
an Amalekite
<06003>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, How wast thou not afraid
<03372> (8804)
to stretch forth
<07971> (8800)
thine hand
<03027>
to destroy
<07843> (8763)
the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_?
And David
<01732>
called
<07121> (8799)
one
<0259>
of the young men
<05288>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go near
<05066> (8798)_,
[and] fall
<06293> (8798)
upon him. And he smote
<05221> (8686)
him that he died
<04191> (8799)_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Thy blood
<01818>
[be] upon thy head
<07218>_;
for thy mouth
<06310>
hath testified
<06030> (8804)
against thee, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
I have slain
<04191> (8790)
the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_.
And David
<01732>
lamented
<06969> (8787)
with this lamentation
<07015>
over Saul
<07586>
and over Jonathan
<03083>
his son
<01121>_:
(Also he bade
<0559> (8799)
them teach
<03925> (8763)
the children
<01121>
of Judah
<03063>
[the use of] the bow
<07198>_:
behold, [it is] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of Jasher
<03477>.)
{of Jasher: or, of the upright}
The beauty
<06643>
of Israel
<03478>
is slain
<02491>
upon thy high places
<01116>_:
how are the mighty
<01368>
fallen
<05307> (8804)_!
Tell
<05046> (8686)
[it] not in Gath
<01661>_,
publish
<01319> (8762)
[it] not in the streets
<02351>
of Askelon
<0831>_;
lest the daughters
<01323>
of the Philistines
<06430>
rejoice
<08055> (8799)_,
lest the daughters
<01323>
of the uncircumcised
<06189>
triumph
<05937> (8799)_.
Ye mountains
<02022>
of Gilboa
<01533>_,
[let there be] no dew
<02919>_,
neither [let there be] rain
<04306>_,
upon you, nor fields
<07704>
of offerings
<08641>_:
for there the shield
<04043>
of the mighty
<01368>
is vilely cast away
<01602> (8738)_,
the shield
<04043>
of Saul
<07586>_,
[as though he had] not [been] anointed
<04899>
with oil
<08081>_.
From the blood
<01818>
of the slain
<02491>_,
from the fat
<02459>
of the mighty
<01368>_,
the bow
<07198>
of Jonathan
<03083>
turned
<07734> (8738)
not back
<0268>_,
and the sword
<02719>
of Saul
<07586>
returned
<07725> (8799)
not empty
<07387>_.
Saul
<07586>
and Jonathan
<03083>
[were] lovely
<0157> (8737)
and pleasant
<05273>
in their lives
<02416>_,
and in their death
<04194>
they were not divided
<06504> (8738)_:
they were swifter
<07043> (8804)
than eagles
<05404>_,
they were stronger
<01396> (8804)
than lions
<0738>_.
{pleasant: or, sweet}
Ye daughters
<01323>
of Israel
<03478>_,
weep over
<01058> (8798)
Saul
<07586>_,
who clothed
<03847> (8688)
you in scarlet
<08144>_,
with [other] delights
<05730>_,
who put
<05927> (8688)
on ornaments
<05716>
of gold
<02091>
upon your apparel
<03830>_.
How are the mighty
<01368>
fallen
<05307> (8804)
in the midst
<08432>
of the battle
<04421>_!
O Jonathan
<03083>_,
[thou wast] slain
<02491>
in thine high places
<01116>_.
I am distressed
<06887> (8804)
for thee, my brother
<0251>
Jonathan
<03083>_:
very
<03966>
pleasant
<05276> (8804)
hast thou been unto me: thy love
<0160>
to me was wonderful
<06381> (8738)_,
passing the love
<0160>
of women
<0802>_.
How are the mighty
<01368>
fallen
<05307> (8804)_,
and the weapons
<03627>
of war
<04421>
perished
<06> (8799)_!
