(58) The death of Saul

The Philistines gathered their armies for another war with Israel
and attacked Israel, making Israelites to run away.
Many people died on that day.
The battle grew very intense around Saul and his 3 sons.
The Philistine archer caught up with Saul, and
wounded badly.
Saul asked his armor bearer to end his life.
But the armor bearer was afraid to do it
and Saul fell on his own sword and killed himself.
When David was told that Saul and his sons were dead,
he tore his clothes in sorrow and wept and fasted
all day for Saul and his son Jonathan,
and for the nation of Israel.
David also made a funeral song for Saul and Jonathan
