1 Now the Philistines warred against Israel; and they fled from before the Philistines, and fell down slain in mount Gelbue. 2 And the Philistines pursued after Saul, and after his sons; and the Philistines smote Jonathan, and Aminadab, and Melchisue, sons of Saul. 3 And the battle prevailed against Saul, and the archers hit him with bows and arrows, and they were wounded of the bows. 4 And Saul said to his armour-bearer, Draw thy sword, and pierce me through with it, lest these uncircumcised come and mock me. But his armour-bearer would not, for he was greatly afraid: so Saul took a sword, and fell upon it. 5 And his armour-bearer saw that Saul was dead, and he also fell upon his sword. 6 So Saul died, and his three sons on that day, and all his family died at the same time. 7 And all the men of Israel that were in the valley saw that Israel fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead, and they left their cities, and fled: and the Philistines came and dwelt in them. 8 And it came to pass on the next [day] that the Philistines came to strip the slain, and they found Saul and his sons fallen on mount Gelbue. 9 And they stripped him, and took his head, and his armour, and sent them into the land of the Philistines round about, to proclaim the glad tidings to their idols, and to the people. 10 And they put their armour in the house of their god, and they put his head in the house of Dagon. 11 And all the dwellers in Galaad heard of all that the Philistines had done to Saul and to Israel. 12 And all the mighty men rose up from Galaad, and they took the body of Saul, and the bodies of his sons, and brought them to Jabis, and buried their bones under the oak in Jabis, and fasted seven days. 13 So Saul died for his transgressions, wherein he transgressed against God, against the word of the Lord, forasmuch as he kept [it] not, because Saul enquired of a wizard to seek [counsel], and Samuel the prophet answered him: 14 and he sought not the Lord: so he slew him, and turned the kingdom to David the son of Jesse. ΚΑΙ ἀλλόφυλοι ἐπολέμησαν πρὸς τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἔφυγον ἀπὸ προσώπου ἀλλοφύλων, καὶ ἔπεσον τραυματίαι ἐν ὄρει Γελβουέ. 2 καὶ κατεδίωξαν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ὀπίσω Σαοὺλ καὶ ὀπίσω τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπάταξαν ἀλλόφυλοι τὸν ᾿Ιωνάθαν καὶ τὸν ᾿Αμιναδὰβ καὶ τὸν Μελχισουὲ υἱοὺς Σαούλ. 3 καὶ ἐβαρύνθη ὁ πόλεμος ἐπὶ Σαούλ, καὶ εὗρον αὐτὸν οἱ τοξόται ἐν τόξοις καὶ πόνοις, καὶ ἐπόνεσεν ἀπὸ τῶν τόξων. 4 καὶ εἶπε Σαοὺλ τῷ αἴροντι τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ· σπάσαι τὴν ῥομφαίαν σου καὶ ἐκκέντησόν με ἐν αὐτῇ, μὴ ἔλθωσιν οἱ ἀπερίτμητοι οὗτοι καὶ ἐμπαίξωσί μοι. καὶ οὐκ ἐβούλετο ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐφοβεῖτο σφόδρα· καὶ ἔλαβε Σαοὺλ τὴν ρομφαίαν καὶ ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτήν. 5 καὶ εἶδεν ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἀπέθανε Σαούλ, καὶ ἔπεσε καί γε αὐτὸς ἐπὶ τὴν ρομφαίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπέθανε. 6 καὶ ἀπέθανε Σαοὺλ καὶ τρεῖς υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ, καὶ πᾶς ὁ οἶκος αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἀπέθανε. 7 καὶ εἶδε πᾶς ἀνὴρ ᾿Ισραὴλ ὁ ἐν τῷ αὐλῶνι ὅτι ἔφυγεν ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ὅτι ἀπέθανε Σαοὺλ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ κατέλιπον τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν καὶ ἔφυγον· καὶ ἦλθον οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι καὶ κατῴκησαν ἐν αὐταῖς. 8 καὶ ἐγένετο τῇ ἑπομένῃ καὶ ἦλθον ἀλλόφυλοι τοῦ σκυλεύειν τοὺς τραυματίας καὶ εὗρον τὸν Σαοὺλ καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ πεπτωκότας ἐν τῷ ὄρει Γελβουέ. 9 καὶ ἐξέδυσαν αὐτὸν καὶ ἔλαβον τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπέστειλαν εἰς γῆν ἀλλοφύλων κύκλῳ τοῦ εὐαγγελίσασθαι τοῖς εἰδώλοις αὐτῶν καὶ τῷ λαῷ· 10 καὶ ἔθηκαν τὰ σκεύη αὐτῶν ἐν οἴκῳ θεοῦ αὐτῶν καὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ ἔθηκαν ἐν οἴκῳ Δαγών. 11 καὶ ἤκουσαν πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες Γαλαὰδ ἅπαντα, ἃ ἐποίησαν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι τῷ Σαοὺλ καὶ υἱῷ ᾿Ισραήλ. 12 καὶ ἠγέρθησαν ἐκ Γαλαὰδ πᾶς ἀνὴρ δυνατὸς καὶ ἔλαβον τὸ σῶμα Σαοὺλ καὶ τὸ σῶμα τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἤνεγκαν αὐτὰ εἰς ᾿Ιαβὶς καὶ ἔθαψαν τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτῶν ὑπὸ τὴν δρῦν ἐν ᾿Ιαβὶς καὶ ἐνήστευσαν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας. 13 καὶ ἀπέθανε Σαοὺλ ἐν ταῖς ἀνομίαις αὐτοῦ, αἷς ἠνόμησε τῷ Θεῷ κατὰ τὸν λόγον Κυρίου, διότι οὐκ ἐφύλαξεν· ὅτι ἐπηρώτησε Σαοὺλ ἐν τῶ ἐγγαστριμύθῳ τοῦ ζητῆσαι, καὶ ἀπεκρίνατο αὐτῷ Σαμουὴλ ὁ προφήτης· 14 καὶ οὐκ ἐζήτησε Κύριον, καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐπέστρεψε τὴν βασιλείαν τῷ Δαυὶδ υἱῷ ᾿Ιεσσαί.
