II Samuel 1

  <  BACK



The Second Book of Samuel

Otherwise Called: The Second Book of the Kings

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; 

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.

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.

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.

1:5 And David said unto the young man that told him, 
How knowest thou that Saul and Jonathan his son be dead? 

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.

1:7 And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called unto me. 
And I answered, Here am I.

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

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.

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.

1:11 Then David took hold on his clothes, and rent them; 
and likewise all the men that were with him: 

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.

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.

1:14 And David said unto him, 
How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the LORD's anointed? 

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.

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.

1:17 And David lamented with this lamentation over Saul and over Jonathan his son: 

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.)

1:19 The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mighty fallen! 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

1:25 How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle! 
O Jonathan, thou wast slain in thine high places.

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.

1:27 How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!
