2 Samuel 1:17, 23-27

User Rating: / 0

17 David took up this lament concerning Saul and his son Jonathan,

23 "Saul and Jonathan—
       in life they were loved and gracious,
       and in death they were not parted.
       They were swifter than eagles,
       they were stronger than lions.

 24 "O daughters of Israel,
       weep for Saul,
       who clothed you in scarlet and finery,
       who adorned your garments with ornaments of gold.

 25 "How the mighty have fallen in battle!
       Jonathan lies slain on your heights.

 26 I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother;
       you were very dear to me.
       Your love for me was wonderful,
       more wonderful than that of women.

 27 "How the mighty have fallen!
       The weapons of war have perished!"
