But his armor-bearer was terrified and would not do it; so Saul took his own sword and fell on it.
5 When his armor bearer realized that Saul was dead, he fell on his own sword and died. 5 When the armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died.

And the Philistines came and occupied them.

12 their warriors went out and brought the bodies of Saul and his three sons back to Jabesh.
