1 And the Philistines fought with Israel: and the men of Israel fled from before the Philistines, and they fall down wounded in the mountain in Gelbue. 2 And the Philistines press closely on Saul and his sons, and the Philistines smite Jonathan, and Aminadab, and Melchisa son of Saul. 3 And the battle prevails against Saul, and the shooters with arrows, even the archers find him, and he was wounded under the ribs. 4 And Saul said to his armour-bearer, Draw thy sword and pierce me through with it; lest these uncircumcised come and pierce me through, and mock me. But his armour-bearer would not, for he feared greatly: so Saul took his sword and fell upon it. 5 And his armour-bearer saw that Saul was dead, and he fell also himself upon his sword, and died with him. 6 So Saul died, and his three sons, and his armour-bearer, in that day together. 7 And the men of Israel who were on the other side of the valley, and those beyond Jordan, saw that the men of Israel fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead; and they leave their cities and flee: and the Philistines come and dwell in them. 8 And it came to pass on the morrow that the Philistines come to strip the dead, and they find Saul and his three sons fallen on the mountains of Gelbue. 9 And they turned him, and stripped off his armour, and sent it into the land of the Philistines, sending round glad tidings to their idols and to the people. 10 And they set up his armour at the temple of Astarte, and they fastened his body on the wall of Baethsam. 11 And the inhabitants of Jabis Galaad hear what the Philistines did to Saul. 12 And they rose up, [even] every man of might, and marched all night, and took the body of Saul and the body of Jonathan his son from the wall of Baethsam; and they bring them to Jabis, and burn them there. 13 And they take their bones, and bury them in the field that is in Jabis, and fast seven days. ΚΑΙ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἐπολέμουν ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἔφυγον οἱ ἄνδρες ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐκ προσώπου τῶν ἀλλοφύλων, καὶ πίπτουσι τραυματίαι ἐν τῷ ὄρει τῷ Γελβουέ. 2 καὶ συνάπτουσιν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι τῷ Σαοὺλ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ, καὶ τύπτουσιν ἀλλόφυλοι τὸν ᾿Ιωνάθαν καὶ τὸν ᾿Αμιναδὰβ καὶ τὸν Μελχισᾶ υἱοὺς Σαούλ. 3 καὶ βαρύνεται ὁ πόλεμος ἐπὶ Σαούλ, καὶ εὑρίσκουσιν αὐτὸν οἱ ἀκοντισταί, ἄνδρες τοξόται, καὶ ἐτραυματίσθη εἰς τά ὑποχόνδρια. 4 καὶ εἶπε Σαοὺλ πρὸς τὸν αἴροντα τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ· σπάσαι τὴν ῥομφαίαν σου καὶ ἀποκέντησόν με ἐν αὐτῇ, μὴ ἔλθωσιν οἱ ἀπερίτμητοι οὗτοι καὶ ἀποκεντήσωσί με καὶ ἐμπαίξωσί μοι. καὶ οὐκ ἐβούλετο ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐφοβήθη σφόδρα· καὶ ἔλαβε Σαοὺλ τὴν ρομφαίαν καὶ ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτήν. 5 καὶ εἶδεν ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ὅτι τέθνηκε Σαούλ, καὶ ἐπέπεσε καὶ αὐτὸς ἐπὶ τὴν ρομφαίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπέθανε μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 6 καὶ ἀπέθανε Σαοὺλ καὶ οἱ τρεῖς υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ κατὰ τὸ αὐτό. 7 καὶ εἶδον οἱ ἄνδρες ᾿Ισραὴλ οἱ ἐν τῷ πέραν τῆς κοιλάδος καὶ οἱ ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου ὅτι ἔφυγον οἱ ἄνδρες ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ὅτι τέθνηκε Σαοὺλ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ καταλείπουσι τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν καὶ φεύγουσι· καὶ ἔρχονται οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι καὶ κατοικοῦσιν ἐν αὐταῖς. 8 καὶ ἐγενήθη τῇ ἐπαύριον ἔρχονται οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἐκδιδύσκειν τοὺς νεκροὺς καὶ εὑρίσκουσι τὸν Σαοὺλ καὶ τοὺς τρεῖς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ πεπτωκότας ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη Γελβουέ. 9 καί ἀποστρέφουσιν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐξέδυσαν τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀποστέλλουσιν αὐτὰ εἰς γῆν ἀλλοφύλων κύκλῳ εὐαγγελίζοντες τοῖς εἰδώλοις αὐτῶν καὶ τῷ λαῷ. 10 καὶ ἀνέθηκαν τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ ᾿Ασταρτεῖον καὶ τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ κατέπηξαν ἐν τῷ τείχει Βαιθσάν. 11 καὶ ἀκούουσιν οἱ κατοικοῦντες ᾿Ιαβὶς τῆς Γαλααδίτιδος ἃ ἐποίησαν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι τῷ Σαούλ· 12 καὶ ἀνέστησαν πᾶς ἀνὴρ δυνάμεως καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ὅλην τὴν νύκτα καὶ ἔλαβον τὸ σῶμα Σαοὺλ καὶ τὸ σῶμα ᾿Ιωνάθαν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ τείχους Βαιθσὰν καὶ φέρουσιν αὐτοὺς εἰς ᾿Ιαβὶς καὶ κατακαίουσιν αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖ. 13 καὶ λαμβάνουσι τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτῶν καὶ θάπτουσιν ὑπὸ τὴν ἄρουραν τὴν ἐν ᾿Ιαβὶς καὶ νηστεύουσιν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας.
