10:1 Now the Philistines fought against Israel: and the men of Israel fled from before the Philistines, and fell down slain on Mount Gilboa.
10:2 The Philistines followed hard after Saul and after his sons; and the Philistines killed Jonathan, and Abinadab, and Malchi-shua, the sons of Saul.
10:3 The battle went sore against Saul, and the archers overtook him; and he was distressed by reason of the archers.
10:4 Then said Saul to his armor-bearer, Draw your sword, and thrust me through therewith, lest these uncircumcised come and abuse me. But his armor-bearer would not; for he was sore afraid. Therefore Saul took his sword, and fell on it.
10:5 When his armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he likewise fell on his sword, and died.
10:6 So Saul died, and his three sons; and all his house died together.
10:7 When all the men of Israel who were in the valley saw that they fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead, they forsook their cities, and fled; and the Philistines came and lived in them.
10:8 It happened on the next day, when the Philistines came to strip the slain, that they found Saul and his sons fallen on Mount Gilboa.
10:10 They put his armor in the house of their gods, and fastened his head in the house of Dagon.
10:11 When all Jabesh-gilead heard all that the Philistines had done to Saul,
10:13 So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against Yahweh, because of the word of Yahweh, which he didn`t keep; and also because he asked counsel of one who had a familiar spirit, to inquire [thereby],
10:14 and didn`t inquire of Yahweh: therefore he killed him, and turned the kingdom to David the son of Jesse.
