And for the son of Saul were two men◦, commanders◦ of troops; the name of the one was Baanah and the name of the second was Rechab, sons of Rimmon, the Beerothite, from the sons of Benjamin, for Beeroth also was reckoned to Benjamin.
And Jonathan◦, the son of Saul, had◦ a son crippled in both··feet; he was a son of five years when the report of Saul and Jonathan◦ came from Jezreel, and she who cared··for him lifted· him ·up and fled; and it was, in her rush to flee, that he fell, and became··lame. And his name was Mephibosheth.
And they came into the house, and he◦ was lying on his bed◦ in his bed chamber, and they smote him and put· him ·to··death, and they removed his head, and took his head and went by the way of the desert all the night.
And they brought the head of Ish-bosheth to▵ David to Hebron, and said to▵ the king, Behold the head of Ish-bosheth the son of Saul thine enemy, who sought··after thy soul, and Jehovah gave to my lord the king vengeance this day of Saul and of his seed.
when◦ one told me, saying, Behold, Saul is··dead, and he◦ was in his own eyes as one bringing· good ·tidings, then I seized him and killed him in Ziklag, which is what I gave to him for the tidings.
And David commanded the lads and they killed them and chopped··off their hands and their feet, and hanged them by◦ the pool of Hebron. But the head of Ish-bosheth they took and buried in the grave of Abner in Hebron.
