2 Samuel 1:5
Context
David Learns of Saul's Death

1Now it came to pass after the death of Saul, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, and David had stayed two days in Ziklag; 2It 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 on his head: and so it was, when he came to David, that he fell to the earth, and did obeisance. 3And David said to him, From where come you? And he said to him, Out of the camp of Israel am I escaped. 4And David said to him, How went the matter? I pray you, 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. 5And David said to the young man that told him, How know you that Saul and Jonathan his son be dead? 6And the young man that told him said, As I happened by chance on mount Gilboa, behold, Saul leaned on his spear; and, see, the chariots and horsemen followed hard after him. 7And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called to me. And I answered, Here am I. 8And he said to me, Who are you? And I answered him, I am an Amalekite. 9He said to me again, Stand, I pray you, on me, and slay me: for anguish is come on me, because my life is yet whole in me. 10So I stood on 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 on his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them here to my lord. 11Then David took hold on his clothes, and rent them; and likewise all the men that were with him: 12And 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. 13And David said to the young man that told him, From where are you? And he answered, I am the son of a stranger, an Amalekite. 14And David said to him, How were you not afraid to stretch forth your hand to destroy the LORD's anointed? 15And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall on him. And he smote him that he died. 16And David said to him, Your blood be on your head; for your mouth has testified against you, saying, I have slain the LORD's anointed.
