Bible: 2 Samuel 1:6-10

1:6 The young man who was telling him this 1  said, “I just happened to be on Mount Gilboa and came across Saul leaning on his spear for support. The chariots and leaders of the horsemen were in hot pursuit of him. 1:7 When he turned around and saw me, he called out to me. I answered, ‘Here I am!’ 1:8 He asked me, ‘Who are you?’ I told him, ‘I’m 2  an Amalekite.’ 1:9 He said to me, ‘Stand over me and finish me off! 3  I’m very dizzy, 4  even though I’m still alive.’ 5  1:10 So I stood over him and put him to death, since I knew that he couldn’t live in such a condition. 6  Then I took the crown which was on his head and the 7  bracelet which was on his arm. I have brought them here to my lord.” 8
