'neither is it for us to put any man to death in Israel. And he 5 said, What ye shall say, that will I do for you. And they said unto the king, The man that consumed us, and that devised against us,
o that we should be destroyed from remaining in any of the borders 6 of Israel, let seven men of his sons be delivered unto us, and we
will hang them up unto the LORD in Gibeah of Saul, the chosen of 7 the LORD. And the king said, I will give them. But the king spared
Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan the son of Saul, because of the
LORD's oath that was between them, between David and Jonathan the 8 son of Saul. But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter
of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; and
the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom she bare to Adriel 9 the son of Barzillai the Meholathite: and he delivered them into the
hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the mountain before the LORD, and they fell all seven together; and they were put to
death in the days of harvest, in the first days, at the beginning of 10 barley harvest. And Rizpah the daughter of Aiah took sackcloth,
and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water was poured upon them from heaven; and she suffered neither
the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field 11 by night. And it was told David what Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, 1 2 the concubine of Saul, had done. And David went and took the bones
of Saul and the bones of Jonathan his son from the men of Jabeshgilead, which had stolen them from the street of Beth-shan, where the
Philistines had hanged them, in the day that the Philistines slew Saul 13 in Gilboa: and he brought up from thence the bones of Saul and the
bones of Jonathan his son; and they gathered the bones of them 14 that were hanged. And they buried the bones of Saul and Jonathan
his son in the country of Benjamin in Zela, in the sepulchre of Kish his father: and they performed all that the king commanded. And after
that God was intreated for the land. 15 And the Philistines had war again with Israel; and David went down
and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines: and 16 David waxed faint. And Ishi-benob, which was of the sons of the giant,
the weight of whose spear was three hundred shekels of brass in weight, 17 he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David. But
Abishai the son of Zeruiah succoured him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him. Then the men of David sware unto him, saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the lamp of Israel.

2 Samuel 22. I. 22 @And David spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day
that the LORD delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and 2 out of the hand of Saul: and he said,
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer,
even mine; 3 The God of my rock, in him will I trust;
My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and
So shall I be saved from mine enemies. 5
For the waves of death compassed me,
The floods of ’ungodliness made me afraid. 6 The cords of Sheol were round about me :
The snares of death came upon me. 7
