First Samuel 31


31:1 Now the Philistines fought against Israel: and the men of
 Israel fled from before the Philistines, and fell down slain in
 mount Gilboa.
31:2 And the Philistines followed hard upon Saul and upon his
 sons; and the Philistines slew Jonathan, and Abinadab, and
 Malchi-shua, Saul's sons.
31:3 And the battle was severe against Saul, and the archers hit
 him; and he was severely wounded by the archers.
31:4 Then said Saul to his armor-bearer, Draw thy sword, and
 thrust me through with it; lest these uncircumcised should come
 and thrust me through, and abuse me. But his armor-bearer would
 not; for he was exceedingly afraid. Therefore Saul took a
 sword, and fell upon it.
31:5 And when his armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell
 likewise upon his sword, and died with him.
31:6 So Saul died, and his three sons, and his armor-bearer, and
 all his men, that same day together.
31:7 And when the men of Israel that [were] on the other side of
 the valley, and [they] that [were] on the other side of Jordan,
 saw that the men of Israel fled, and that Saul and his sons
 were dead, they forsook the cities, and fled; and the
 Philistines came and dwelt in them.
31:8 And it came to pass on the morrow, when the Philistines
 came to strip the slain, that they found Saul and his three
 sons fallen in mount Gilboa.
31:9 And they cut off his head, and stripped off his armor, and
 sent into the land of the Philistines round about, to publish
 [it in] the house of their idols, and among the people.
31:10 And they put his armor in the house of Ashtaroth: and they
 fastened his body to the wall of Beth-shan.
31:11 And when the inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead heard of that
 which the Philistines had done to Saul,
31:12 All the valiant men arose, and went all night, and took
 the body of Saul, and the bodies of his sons from the wall of
 Beth-shan, and came to Jabesh, and burnt them there.
31:13 And they took their bones, and buried [them] under a tree
 at Jabesh, and fasted seven days.
