Rizpah, Aiah's daughter, took sackcloth and spread it out for herself on the rock from the beginning of the harvest until the rain poured down from heaven on the bodies.a She kept the birds of the sky from them by day and the wild animals by night.
When it was reported to David what Saul's concubine Rizpah, daughter of Aiah, had done,
he went and got the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan from the leaders of Jabesh-gilead. They had stolen them from the public square of Beth-shan where the Philistines had hung them the day the Philistines killed Saul at Gilboa.b13
David had the bones brought from there. They also gathered up the bones of Saul's family who had been hung.c14
They [also] buried the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan at Zela in the land of Benjamin in the tomb of Saul's father Kish. They did everything the king commanded. After this, God answered prayer for the land.d
