And Davidsaid unto the young man that told him, Whence art thou? And he answered , I am the son of a stranger , an Amalekite.14
And Davidsaid unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the LORD'Sanointed?15
And Davidcalledone of the young men, and said , Go near , and fall upon him. And he smote him that he died .
And Davidsaid unto him, Thy blood be upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying , I have slain the LORD'Sanointed.17
And Davidlamented with this lamentation over Saul and over Jonathan his son:18
(Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.)
The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mightyfallen !
20Tell it not in Gath,publish it not in the streets of Askelon; lest the daughters of the Philistinesrejoice , lest the daughters of the uncircumcisedtriumph .
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.22
From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathanturned not back, and the sword of Saulreturned not empty.23Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasanta in their lives, and in their death they were not divided : they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
