The Report Of Saul's Death By The Amalekite

11 Now it came about after the death of Saul, when David had returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, that David remained two days in Ziklag.

11 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;

11 After the death of Saul, David returned from defeating the Amalekites and stayed at Ziklag two days.

11 Shortly after Saul had died, David returned from defeating the Amalekites and remained in Ziklag for two days.

11 Now after the death of Saul, when David returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, he had stayed two days in Ziklag,

22 On the third day, behold, a man came out of the camp from Saul, with his clothes torn and dust on his head And it came about when he came to David that he fell to the ground and prostrated himself.

22 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.

22 On the third day a man with torn clothes and dust on his head came from Saul's camp. When he came to David, he fell to the ground and paid homage.

22 The next day, a man escaped from Saul's camp! With torn clothes and dirty hair, he approached David, fell to the ground, and bowed down to him.

22 When on the third day a man came from Saul's camp with his clothes torn and dust on his head. When he came to David, he fell to the ground and did obeisance.

33 Then David said to him, "From where do you come?" And he said to him, "I have escaped from the camp of Israel."

33 And David said unto him, From whence comest thou? And he said unto him, Out of the camp of Israel am I escaped.

33 David asked him, "Where have you come from?" He replied to him, "I've escaped from the Israelite camp."

33 David asked him, "Where did you come from? He answered him, "I just escaped from Israel's encampment."

33 David said to him, Where have you come from? He said, I have escaped from the camp of Israel.

44 David said to him, "How did things go? Please tell me." And he said, "The people have fled from the battle, and also many of the people have fallen and are dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also."

44 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.

44 "What was the outcome? Tell me," David asked him. "The troops fled from the battle," he answered. "Many of the troops have fallen and are dead. Also, Saul and his son Jonathan are dead."

44 David continued questioning him, "How did things go? Please tell me!" He replied, "The army has fled the battlefield, many of the army are wounded or have died, and Saul and his son Jonathan are also dead."

44 David said to him, How did it go? Tell me. He answered, The men have fled from the battle. Many have fallen and are dead; Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also.

55 So David said to the young man who told him, "How do you know that Saul and his son Jonathan are dead?"

55 And David said unto the young man that told him, How knowest thou that Saul and Jonathan his son be dead?

55 David asked the young man who had brought him the report, "How do you know Saul and his son Jonathan are dead?"

55 David asked the young man who related the story, "How do you know that Saul and his son Jonathan are dead?"

55 David said to the young man, How do you know Saul and Jonathan his son are dead?

66 The young man who told him said, "By chance I happened to be on Mount Gilboa, and behold, Saul was leaning on his spear. And behold, the chariots and the horsemen pursued him closely.

66 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.

66 "I happened to be on Mount Gilboa," he replied, "and there was Saul, leaning on his spear. At that very moment the chariots and the cavalry were closing in on him.

66 The young man who had been relating the story answered, "I happened to be on Mount Gilboa and there was Saul, leaning on his spear! Meanwhile, the chariots and horsemen were rapidly drawing near.

66 The young man said, By chance I happened to be on Mount Gilboa and I saw Saul leaning on his spear, and behold, the chariots and horsemen were close behind him.

77 "When he looked behind him, he saw me and called to me. And I said, 'Here I am.'

77 And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called unto me. And I answered, Here am I.

77 When he turned around and saw me, he called out to me, so I answered: I'm at your service.

77 Saul glanced behind him, saw me, and called out to me, so I replied, "Here I am!'

77 When he looked behind him, he saw me and called to me. I answered, Here I am.

88 "He said to me, 'Who are you?' And I answered him, 'I am an Amalekite.'

88 And he said unto me, Who art thou? And I answered him, I am an Amalekite.

88 He asked me, 'Who are you?' I told him: I'm an Amalekite.

88 He asked me, "Who are you?' So I answered him, "I'm an Amalekite!'

88 He asked me, Who are you? I answered, An Amalekite.

99 "Then he said to me, 'Please stand beside me and kill me, for agony has seized me because my life still lingers in me.'

99 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.

99 Then he begged me, 'Stand over me and kill me, for I'm mortally wounded, but my life still lingers.'

99 He begged me, "Please come stand here next to me and kill me, because I'm still alive.'

99 He said to me, Rise up against me and slay me; for terrible dizziness has come upon me, yet my life is still in me [and I will be taken alive].

1010 "So I stood beside him and killed him, because I knew that he could not live after he had fallen And I took the crown which was on his head and the bracelet which was on his arm, and I have brought them here to my lord."

1010 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.

1010 So I stood over him and killed him because I knew that after he had fallen he couldn't survive. I took the crown that was on his head and the armband that was on his arm, and I've brought them here to my lord."

1010 So I stood next to him and killed him, because I knew that he wouldn't live after he had fallen. I took the crown that had been on his head, along with the bracelet that had been on his arm, and I have brought them to your majesty."

1010 So I stood up against him and slew him, because I was sure he could not live after he had fallen. So I took the crown on his head and the bracelet on his arm and have brought them here to my lord.

1111 Then David took hold of his clothes and tore them, and so also did all the men who were with him.

1111 Then David took hold on his clothes, and rent them; and likewise all the men that were with him:

1111 Then David took hold of his clothes and tore them, and all the men with him did the same.

1111 On hearing this, David grabbed his clothes and tore them, as did all the men who were attending to him.

1111 Then David grasped his own clothes and tore them; so did all the men with him.

1212 They mourned and wept and fasted until evening for Saul and his son Jonathan and for the people of the LORD and the house of Israel, because they had fallen by the sword.

1212 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.

1212 They mourned, wept, and fasted until the evening for those who died by the sword-for Saul, his son Jonathan, the Lord's people, and the house of Israel.

David Orders The Amalekite Killed

1313 David said to the young man who told him, "Where are you from?" And he answered, "I am the son of an alien, an Amalekite."

1313 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.

1313 David inquired of the young man who had brought him the report, "Where are you from?" "I'm the son of a foreigner" he said. "I'm an Amalekite."

1313 Meanwhile, David asked the young man who had told him the story, "Where are you from?" He answered, "I'm an Amalekite, the son of a foreign man."

1313 David said to the young man who told him, Where are you from? He answered, I am the son of a foreigner, an Amalekite.

1414 Then David said to him, "How is it you were not afraid to stretch out your hand to destroy the LORD'S anointed?"

1414 And David said unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the LORD'S anointed?

1414 David questioned him, "How is it that you were not afraid to lift your hand to destroy the Lord's anointed?"

1414 At this David asked him, "How is it that you weren't afraid to raise your hand to strike the LORD's anointed?"

1414 David said to him, Why were you not afraid to stretch forth your hand to destroy the Lord's anointed?

1515 And David called one of the young men and said, "Go, cut him down." So he struck him and he died.

1515 And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall upon him. And he smote him that he died.

1515 Then David summoned one of his servants and said, "Come here and kill him!" The servant struck him, and he died.

1515 Then David called out to one of his young men and ordered him, "Go up to him and cut him down!" So he attacked him and killed him.

1515 David called one of the young men and said, Go near and fall upon him. And he smote him so that he died.

1616 David said to him, "Your blood is on your head, for your mouth has testified against you, saying, 'I have killed the LORD'S anointed.'"

1616 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.

1616 For David had said to the Amalekite, "Your blood is on your own head because your own mouth testified against you by saying, 'I killed the Lord's anointed.' "

1616 David told him, "Your blood is on your own head, because your own words testified against you! After all, you said, "I myself have killed the LORD's anointed!'"

1616 David said to [the fallen man], Your blood be upon your own head; for you have testified against yourself, saying, I have slain the Lord's anointed.

1919 The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mighty fallen!

1919 The splendor of Israel lies slain on your heights. How the mighty have fallen!

1919 Your glory, O Israel, is slain upon your high places. How have the mighty fallen!

2020 "Tell it not in Gath, Proclaim it not in the streets of Ashkelon, Or the daughters of the Philistines will rejoice, The daughters of the uncircumcised will exult.

2020 Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in the streets of Askelon; lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph.

2020 Do not tell it in Gath, don't announce it in the streets of Ashkelon, or the daughters of the Philistines will rejoice, and the daughters of the uncircumcised will gloat.

2020 Don't make it known in Gath! Don't declare it in the avenues of Ashkelon! Otherwise, the daughters of Philistia will rejoice; and the daughters of the uncircumcised will triumph.

2020 Tell it not in Gath, announce it not in the streets of Ashkelon, lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised exult.

2121 "O mountains of Gilboa, Let not dew or rain be on you, nor fields of offerings; For there the shield of the mighty was defiled, The shield of Saul, not anointed with oil.

2121 Ye mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew, neither let there be rain, upon you, nor fields of offerings: for there the shield of the mighty is vilely cast away, the shield of Saul, as though he had not been anointed with oil.

2121 Mountains of Gilboa, let no dew or rain be on you, or fields of offerings, for there the shield of the mighty was defiled- the shield of Saul, no longer anointed with oil.

2121 Mountains of Gilboa, let no dew or rain fall on you, and may none of your fields be filled with plenty, because in that place the shield of the valiant ones was defiled, the shield of Saul without an anointing with oil.

2121 O mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew or rain upon you, or fields with offerings. For there the shield of the mighty was defiled, the shield of Saul, as though he were not anointed with oil.

2222 "From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, The bow of Jonathan did not turn back, And the sword of Saul did not return empty.

2222 From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan turned not back, and the sword of Saul returned not empty.

2222 Jonathan's bow never retreated, Saul's sword never returned unstained, from the blood of the slain, from the bodies of the mighty.

2222 From the blood of the slain, from the blood of the valiant, Jonathan's bow would not retreat nor would Saul's sword return empty.

2222 From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan turned not back, and the sword of Saul returned not empty.

2323 "Saul and Jonathan, beloved and pleasant in their life, And in their death they were not parted; They were swifter than eagles, They were stronger than lions.

2323 Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.

2323 Saul and Jonathan, loved and delightful, they were not parted in life or in death. They were swifter than eagles, stronger than lions.

2323 Saul and Jonathan, beloved and lovely! In their lives and in their deaths they were not divided. They were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.

2424 "O daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, Who clothed you luxuriously in scarlet, Who put ornaments of gold on your apparel.

2424 Ye daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you in scarlet, with other delights, who put on ornaments of gold upon your apparel.

2626 "I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; You have been very pleasant to me. Your love to me was more wonderful Than the love of women.

2626 I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.

2626 I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother. You were such a friend to me. Your love for me was more wonderful than the love of a woman [for me].

2626 I am in distress for you, my brother Jonathan. You have been most kind to me. Your love for me was extraordinary beyond love from women.

2626 I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; very pleasant have you been to me. Your love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.

2727 "How have the mighty fallen, And the weapons of war perished!"

2727 How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!

2727 How the mighty have fallen and the weapons of war have perished!

2727 How the valiant have fallen! How the weapons of war are destroyed!"

2727 How have the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!
