1 a With vv. 1–12, cf. 1 Sam. 31.1–13 . The Philistines attacked Israel, and the men of Israel fled before the Philistines and [many] fell on Mount Gilboa. 2The Philistines pursued Saul and his sons, and the Philistines struck down Jonathan, Abinadab, and Malchi‐shua, sons of Saul. 3The battle raged around Saul, and the archers hit him, and he b‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. was wounded ‐b Meaning of Heb. uncertain. by the archers. 4Saul said to his arms‐bearer, “Draw your sword and run me through, so that these uncircumcised may not come and make sport of me.” But his arms‐bearer, out of great awe, refused; whereupon Saul grasped the sword and fell upon it. 5When the arms‐bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died. 6Thus Saul and his three sons and his entire house died together. 7And when all the men of Israel who were in the valley saw that they c I.e., Israel. had fled and that Saul and his sons were dead, they abandoned their towns and fled; the Philistines then came and occupied them.

8The next day the Philistines came to strip the slain, and they found Saul and his sons lying on Mount Gilboa. 9They stripped him, and carried off his head and his armor, and sent them throughout the land of the Philistinesto spread the news to their idols and among the people. 10They placed his armor in the temple of their god, and they impaled his head in the temple of Dagan. 11When all Jabesh‐gilead heard everything that the Philistines had done to Saul, 12all their stalwart men set out, removed the bodies of Saul and his sons, and brought them to Jabesh. They buried the bones under the oak tree in Jabesh, and they fasted for seven days. 13Saul died for the trespass that he had committed against the LORD in not having fulfilled the command of the LORD; moreover, he had consulted a ghost to seek advice, 14and did not seek advice of the LORD; so He had him slain and the kingdom transferred to David son of Jesse.
