1 The Philistines fought with Israel, and the Israelites fled from the Philistines, and the slain fell on Mount Gelvah.
2 And the Philistines chased after Saul and his sons, and the Philistines killed Jonathan and Abinadab and Melchishuy, the sons of Saul.
3 The battle against Saul intensified, and the arrows rushed at him, so that he was wounded by the arrows.
4 And Saul said to his armor-bearer, Draw your sword and slaughter me with it, lest these uncircumcised come and abuse me. But the squire did not dare, because he was very scared. Then Saul took the sword and fell on it.
5 His squire, seeing that Saul was dead, and he fell on his sword and died.
6 And Saul died, and his three sons, and his whole house died with him.
7 When the Israelites, who were in the valley, saw that all were fleeing and that Saul and his sons had died, they left their cities and fled; but the Philistines came and settled in them.

eight The next day the Philistines came to rob the slain, and they found Saul and his sons who fell on the mountain of Gelvah,
nine and they stripped him, and removed his head and his armor from him, and they sent him through the land of the Philistines to proclaim before their idols and before the people.
ten And they laid his weapons in the temple of their gods, and stuck his head in the house of Dagon.
eleven And all Jabesh of Gilead heard all that the Philistines had done to Saul.
12 And all the strong men arose, took the body of Saul and the bodies of his sons, and brought them to Jabesh, and buried their bones under the oak in Jabesh, and fasted seven days.
13 So Saul died for his lawlessness, which he did before the Lord, because he had not kept the words of the Lord and turned to the sorceress with a question,
fourteen He did not seek the Lord. [For] He slew him, and handed over the kingdom to David, the son of Jesse.
