31:1 Now the Philistines [H6430] fought [H3898] against Israel [H3478] : and the men [H582] of Israel [H3478] fled [H5127] from before [H6440] the Philistines [H6430] , and fell down [H5307] slain [H2491] in mount [H2022] Gilboa [H1533] .(slain: or, wounded)

31:2 And the Philistines [H6430] followed hard [H1692] upon Saul [H7586] and upon his sons [H1121] ; and the Philistines [H6430] slew [H5221] Jonathan [H3083] , and Abinadab [H41] , and Malchishua [H4444] , Saul's [H7586] sons [H1121] .

31:3 And the battle [H4421] went sore [H3513] against Saul [H7586] , and the archers [H3384] [H582] [H7198] hit [H4672] him; and he was sore [H3966] wounded [H2342] of the archers [H3384] [H582] [H7198] .(and the archers: Heb. and the shooters, men with bows)(hit: Heb. found him)

31:4 Then said [H559] Saul [H7586] unto his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] , Draw [H8025] thy sword [H2719] , and thrust me through [H1856] therewith; lest these uncircumcised [H6189] come [H935] and thrust me through [H1856] , and abuse [H5953] me. But his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] would [H14] not; for he was sore [H3966] afraid [H3372] . Therefore Saul [H7586] took [H3947] a sword [H2719] , and fell [H5307] upon it.(abuse: or, mock me)

31:5 And when his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] saw [H7200] that Saul [H7586] was dead [H4191] , he fell [H5307] likewise upon his sword [H2719] , and died [H4191] with him.

31:6 So Saul [H7586] died [H4191] , and his three [H7969] sons [H1121] , and his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] , and all his men [H582] , that same day [H3117] together [H3162] .

31:7 And when the men [H582] of Israel [H3478] that [were] on the other side [H5676] of the valley [H6010] , and [they] that [were] on the other side [H5676] Jordan [H3383] , saw [H7200] that the men [H582] of Israel [H3478] fled [H5127] , and that Saul [H7586] and his sons [H1121] were dead [H4191] , they forsook [H5800] the cities [H5892] , and fled [H5127] ; and the Philistines [H6430] came [H935] and dwelt [H3427] in them.

31:8 And it came to pass on the morrow [H4283] , when the Philistines [H6430] came [H935] to strip [H6584] the slain [H2491] , that they found [H4672] Saul [H7586] and his three [H7969] sons [H1121] fallen [H5307] in mount [H2022] Gilboa [H1533] .

31:9 And they cut off [H3772] his head [H7218] , and stripped off [H6584] his armour [H3627] , and sent [H7971] into the land [H776] of the Philistines [H6430] round about [H5439] , to publish [H1319] [it in] the house [H1004] of their idols [H6091] , and among the people [H5971] .

31:10 And they put [H7760] his armour [H3627] in the house [H1004] of Ashtaroth [H6252] [H1045] : and they fastened [H8628] his body [H1472] to the wall [H2346] of Bethshan [H1052] .

31:11 And when the inhabitants [H3427] of Jabeshgilead [H3003] [H1568] heard [H8085] of that which the Philistines [H6430] had done [H6213] to Saul [H7586] ;(of that: or, concerning him that)

31:12 All the valiant [H2428] men [H376] [H381] arose [H6965] , and went [H3212] all night [H3915] , and took [H3947] the body [H1472] of Saul [H7586] and the bodies [H1472] of his sons [H1121] from the wall [H2346] of Bethshan [H1052] , and came [H935] to Jabesh [H3003] , and burnt [H8313] them there.

31:13 And they took [H3947] their bones [H6106] , and buried [H6912] [them] under a tree [H815] at Jabesh [H3003] , and fasted [H6684] seven [H7651] days [H3117] .
