2 Samuel 1:17-27

CEB 17 Then David sang this funeral song for Saul and his son Jonathan. NRS 17 David intoned this lamentation over Saul and his son Jonathan. CEB 18 David ordered everyone in Judah to learn the Song of the Bow. (In fact, it is written in the scroll from Jashar.) NRS 18 (He ordered that The Song of the Bow be taught to the people of Judah; it is written in the Book of Jashar.) He said: CEB 19 Oh, no, Israel! Your prince lies dead on your heights. Look how the mighty warriors have fallen! NRS 19 Your glory, O Israel, lies slain upon your high places! How the mighty have fallen! CEB 20 Don't talk about it in Gath; don't bring news of it to Ashkelon's streets, or else the Philistines' daughters will rejoice; the daughters of the uncircumcised will celebrate. NRS 20 Tell it not in Gath, proclaim it not in the streets of Ashkelon; or the daughters of the Philistines will rejoice, the daughters of the uncircumcised will exult. CEB 21 You hills of Gilboa! Let there be no dew or rain on you, and no fields yielding grain offerings. Because it was there that the mighty warrior's shield was defiled— the shield of Saul!—never again anointed with oil. NRS 21 You mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew or rain upon you, nor bounteous fields! For there the shield of the mighty was defiled, the shield of Saul, anointed with oil no more. CEB 22 Jonathan's bow never wavered from the blood of the slain, from the gore of the warriors. Never did Saul's sword return empty. NRS 22 From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan did not turn back, nor the sword of Saul return empty. CEB 23 Saul and Jonathan! So well loved, so dearly cherished! In their lives and in their deaths they were never separated. They were faster than eagles, stronger than lions! NRS 23 Saul and Jonathan, beloved and lovely! In life and in death they were not divided; they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions. CEB 24 Daughters of Israel, weep over Saul! He dressed you in crimson with jewels; he decorated your clothes with gold jewelry. NRS 24 O daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you with crimson, in luxury, who put ornaments of gold on your apparel. CEB 25 Look how the mighty warriors have fallen in the midst of battle! Jonathan lies dead on your heights. NRS 25 How the mighty have fallen in the midst of the battle! Jonathan lies slain upon your high places. CEB 26 I grieve for you, my brother Jonathan! You were so dear to me! Your love was more amazing to me than the love of women. NRS 26 I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; greatly beloved were you to me; your love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women. CEB 27 Look how the mighty warriors have fallen! Look how the weapons of war have been destroyed! NRS 27 How the mighty have fallen, and the weapons of war perished!
