kjv@2Samuel:1:1@ Now it came to pass after the death of Saul, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, and David had abode two days in Ziklag;
kjv@2Samuel:1:2@ It came even to pass on the third day, that, behold, a man came out of the camp from Saul with his clothes rent, and earth upon his head: and so it was, when he came to David, that he fell to the earth, and did obeisance.
kjv@2Samuel:1:3@ And David said unto him, From whence comest thou? And he said unto him, Out of the camp of Israel am I escaped.
kjv@2Samuel:1:4@ And David said unto him, How went the matter? I pray thee, tell me. And he answered, That the people are fled from the battle, and many of the people also are fallen and dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also.
kjv@2Samuel:1:5@ And David said unto the young man that told him, How knowest thou that Saul and Jonathan his son be dead?
kjv@2Samuel:1:6@ And the young man that told him said, As I happened by chance upon mount Gilboa, behold, Saul leaned upon his spear; and, lo, the chariots and horsemen followed hard after him.
kjv@2Samuel:1:7@ And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called unto me. And I answered, Here am I.
kjv@2Samuel:1:8@ And he said unto me, Who art thou? And I answered him, I am an Amalekite.
kjv@2Samuel:1:9@ He said unto me again, Stand, I pray thee, upon me, and slay me: for anguish is come upon me, because my life is yet whole in me.
kjv@2Samuel:1:10@ So I stood upon him, and slew him, because I was sure that he could not live after that he was fallen: and I took the crown that was upon his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them hither unto my lord.
kjv@2Samuel:1:11@ Then David took hold on his clothes, and rent them; and likewise all the men that were with him:
kjv@2Samuel:1:12@ And they mourned, and wept, and fasted until even, for Saul, and for Jonathan his son, and for the people of the LORD, and for the house of Israel; because they were fallen by the sword.
kjv@2Samuel:1:13@ And David said unto the young man that told him, Whence art thou? And he answered, I am the son of a stranger, an Amalekite.
kjv@2Samuel:1:14@ And David said unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the LORD'S anointed?
kjv@2Samuel:1:15@ And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall upon him. And he smote him that he died.
kjv@2Samuel:1:16@ And David said unto him, Thy blood be upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the LORD'S anointed.
