1 Samuel 31
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the Philistines were fighting with Israel, and men of Israel fled from before the Philistines, and they fell slain in the mountain of Gelbua 2And the Philistines overtook Shaul and his sons, and the Philistines murdered Jonathan and Yashui and Melkishua, the sons of Shaul 3And the battle prevailed against Shaul, and the Archers overtook him with bows, and he was very afraid of the Archers 4And Shaul said to the Bearer of his armor: “Draw out your sword and run me through with it, lest these uncircumcised come, for they will kill me and they will disgrace me.” And the Bearer of his armor was not willing, because he was very afraid, and Shaul took his own sword and he fell upon it 5And the Bearer of his armor saw that Shaul was dead, and he fell also on his sword and he died 6And Shaul died and his three sons, and the Bearer of his armor also, all his Servants on that day together

7And the men of Israel who were at the crossing of the valley of Jordan saw that the men of Israel had fled and that Shaul was dead and his sons, and they abandoned the towns and fled, and the Philistines came and they dwelt in them

8And the next day the Philistines came to strip the slain, and they found Shaul and his three sons as they had fallen on the Mountain of Gelbua 9And they cut off his head and they stripped his garments and they sent to proclaim the news in the land of the Philistines, and among the people, and in the house of their idols 10And they placed his armor in the house of Ashteroth, and his body they fastened to the wall of Bayth Yashan

11And the dwellers of Yabish of Gelad heard the thing that the Philistines had done to Shaul and to his sons 12And they arose, every mighty man, and they went all night and they took the body of Shaul and the bodies of his sons from the wall of Bayth Yashan and they brought them to Yabish and burned them there 13And they took their bones and they buried them under the almond tree which is at Yabish and they fasted seven days
