1:1 Now it came to pass after [H310] the death [H4194] of Saul [H7586] , when David [H1732] was returned [H7725] from the slaughter [H5221] of the Amalekites [H6002] , and David [H1732] had abode [H3427] two [H8147] days [H3117] in Ziklag [H6860] ;

1:2 It came even to pass on the third [H7992] day [H3117] , that, behold, a man [H376] came [H935] out of the camp [H4264] from Saul [H7586] with his clothes [H899] rent [H7167] , and earth [H127] upon his head [H7218] : and [so] it was, when he came [H935] to David [H1732] , that he fell [H5307] to the earth [H776] , and did obeisance [H7812] .

1:3 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto him, From whence comest [H935] thou? And he said [H559] unto him, Out of the camp [H4264] of Israel [H3478] am I escaped [H4422] .

1:4 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto him, How [H4100] went the matter [H1697] ? I pray thee, tell [H5046] me. And he answered [H559] , That the people [H5971] are fled [H5127] from the battle [H4421] , and many [H7235] of the people [H5971] also are fallen [H5307] and dead [H4191] ; and Saul [H7586] and Jonathan [H3083] his son [H1121] are dead [H4191] also.(How: Heb. What was, etc)

1:5 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto the young man [H5288] that told [H5046] him, How knowest [H3045] thou that Saul [H7586] and Jonathan [H3083] his son [H1121] be dead [H4191] ?

1:6 And the young man [H5288] that told [H5046] him said [H559] , As I happened [H7136] by chance [H7122] upon mount [H2022] Gilboa [H1533] , behold, Saul [H7586] leaned [H8172] upon his spear [H2595] ; and, lo, the chariots [H7393] and horsemen [H1167] [H6571] followed hard [H1692] after him.

1:7 And when he looked [H6437] behind [H310] him, he saw [H7200] me, and called [H7121] unto me. And I answered [H559] , Here [am] I.(Here: Heb. Behold me)

1:8 And he said [H559] unto me, Who [art] thou? And I answered [H559] him, I [am] an Amalekite [H6003] .

1:9 He said [H559] unto me again, Stand [H5975] , I pray thee, upon me, and slay [H4191] me: for anguish [H7661] is come [H270] upon me, because my life [H5315] [is] yet whole in me.(anguish: or, my coat of mail (or, my embroidered coat) hindereth me, that my, etc)

1:10 So I stood [H5975] upon him, and slew [H4191] him, because I was sure [H3045] that he could not live [H2421] after [H310] that he was fallen [H5307] : and I took [H3947] the crown [H5145] that [was] upon his head [H7218] , and the bracelet [H685] that [was] on his arm [H2220] , and have brought [H935] them hither unto my lord [H113] .

1:11 Then David [H1732] took hold [H2388] on his clothes [H899] , and rent [H7167] them; and likewise all the men [H582] that [were] with him:

1:12 And they mourned [H5594] , and wept [H1058] , and fasted [H6684] until even [H6153] , for Saul [H7586] , and for Jonathan [H3083] his son [H1121] , and for the people [H5971] of the LORD [H3068] , and for the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] ; because they were fallen [H5307] by the sword [H2719] .

1:13 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto the young man [H5288] that told [H5046] him, Whence [art] thou? And he answered [H559] , I [am] the son [H1121] of a stranger [H376] [H1616] , an Amalekite [H6003] .

1:14 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto him, How wast thou not afraid [H3372] to stretch forth [H7971] thine hand [H3027] to destroy [H7843] the LORD'S [H3068] anointed [H4899] ?

1:15 And David [H1732] called [H7121] one [H259] of the young men [H5288] , and said [H559] , Go near [H5066] , [and] fall [H6293] upon him. And he smote [H5221] him that he died [H4191] .

1:16 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto him, Thy blood [H1818] [be] upon thy head [H7218] ; for thy mouth [H6310] hath testified [H6030] against thee, saying [H559] , I have slain [H4191] the LORD'S [H3068] anointed [H4899] .

1:17 And David [H1732] lamented [H6969] with this lamentation [H7015] over Saul [H7586] and over Jonathan [H3083] his son [H1121] :

1:18 (Also he bade [H559] them teach [H3925] the children [H1121] of Judah [H3063] [the use of] the bow [H7198] : behold, [it is] written [H3789] in the book [H5612] of Jasher [H3477] .)(of Jasher: or, of the upright)

1:19 The beauty [H6643] of Israel [H3478] is slain [H2491] upon thy high places [H1116] : how are the mighty [H1368] fallen [H5307] !

1:20 Tell [H5046] [it] not in Gath [H1661] , publish [H1319] [it] not in the streets [H2351] of Askelon [H831] ; lest the daughters [H1323] of the Philistines [H6430] rejoice [H8055] , lest the daughters [H1323] of the uncircumcised [H6189] triumph [H5937] .

1:21 Ye mountains [H2022] of Gilboa [H1533] , [let there be] no dew [H2919] , neither [let there be] rain [H4306] , upon you, nor fields [H7704] of offerings [H8641] : for there the shield [H4043] of the mighty [H1368] is vilely cast away [H1602] , the shield [H4043] of Saul [H7586] , [as though he had] not [been] anointed [H4899] with oil [H8081] .

1:22 From the blood [H1818] of the slain [H2491] , from the fat [H2459] of the mighty [H1368] , the bow [H7198] of Jonathan [H3083] turned [H7734] not back [H268] , and the sword [H2719] of Saul [H7586] returned [H7725] not empty [H7387] .

1:23 Saul [H7586] and Jonathan [H3083] [were] lovely [H157] and pleasant [H5273] in their lives [H2416] , and in their death [H4194] they were not divided [H6504] : they were swifter [H7043] than eagles [H5404] , they were stronger [H1396] than lions [H738] .(pleasant: or, sweet)

1:24 Ye daughters [H1323] of Israel [H3478] , weep over [H1058] Saul [H7586] , who clothed [H3847] you in scarlet [H8144] , with [other] delights [H5730] , who put [H5927] on ornaments [H5716] of gold [H2091] upon your apparel [H3830] .

1:25 How are the mighty [H1368] fallen [H5307] in the midst [H8432] of the battle [H4421] ! O Jonathan [H3083] , [thou wast] slain [H2491] in thine high places [H1116] .

1:26 I am distressed [H6887] for thee, my brother [H251] Jonathan [H3083] : very [H3966] pleasant [H5276] hast thou been unto me: thy love [H160] to me was wonderful [H6381] , passing the love [H160] of women [H802] .

1:27 How are the mighty [H1368] fallen [H5307] , and the weapons [H3627] of war [H4421] perished [H6] !
