Chapter 1


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: And 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.
