Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO FIRST SAMUEL 31\\

This chapter gives an account of the battle between the Philistines and
the Israelites, which had been preparing for, and the issue of it; in
which Saul, his three sons, and his servants, were slain, upon which
his army fled, and several of his cities were taken, \\#1Sa 31:1-7\\; what
the Philistines did with his body and his armour, \\#1Sa 31:8-10\\; the
former of which, together with the bodies of his sons, the men of
Jabeshgilead rescued, and burnt them, and buried their bones under a
tree at Jabesh, expressing great sorrow and concern, \\#1Sa 31:11-13\\.
