~ David Learns of Saul's Death

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.

~ David's Dirge for Saul and Jonathan

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!
