1 The battle of Saul against the Philistines, 4 In which he dieth, 6 And his sons also. 13 The cause of Saul’s death. Then the Philistines fought against Israel, and the men of Israel fled before the Philistines, and fell down slain in mount Gilboa.
The Philistines went to war against Israel; the Israelites ran for their lives from the Philistines but fell, slaughtered on Mount Gilboa. The Philistines zeroed in on Saul and his sons and killed his sons Jonathan, Abinadab, and Malki-Shua. The battle went hard against Saul—the archers found him and wounded him. Saul said to his armor bearer, “Draw your sword and finish me off before these pagan pigs get to me and make a sport of my body.” But his armor bearer, restrained by both reverence and fear, wouldn’t do it. So Saul took his own sword and killed himself. The armor bearer, panicked because Saul was dead, then killed himself.
Forsooth the Philistines fought against Israel, and the sons of Israel fled (from) the Philistines, and felled down wounded in the hill of Gilboa. (And the Philistines fought against the men of Israel, and the Israelites fled from the Philistines, and fell down dead on Mount Gilboa.)
