And he brought up from thence the bones of Saul, and the bones
of Jonathan his son
Which had been buried there under an oak, ( 1 Chronicles 10:12 ) ;
and they gathered the bones of them that were hanged;
the seven sons of Saul, who had been lately hanged; who either had hung so long that their flesh was consumed, and the bones dropped upon the ground, from whence they gathered them; or they took them down and burnt the flesh off of them, and took the bones to bury them, which was not usually done F21.
F21 Lipsins de Cruce, l. 2. c. 16.
