The Holy Bible - The First Book of the Chronicles, Chapter 10 (Latin)
1Now the Philistines fought against Israel; and the men of Israel fled from before the Philistines, and fell down slain in mount Gilboa.
2And the Philistines followed hard after Saul, and after his sons; and the Philistines slew Jonathan, and Abinadab, and Malchishua, the sons of Saul.
3And the battle went sore against Saul, and the archers hit him, and he was wounded of the archers.
4Then said Saul to his armourbearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come and abuse me. But his armourbearer would not; for he was sore afraid. So Saul took a sword, and fell upon it.
5And when his armourbearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell likewise on the sword, and died.
6So Saul died, and his three sons, and all his house died together.
7And when all the men of Israel that were in the valley saw that they fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead, then they forsook their cities, and fled: and the Philistines came and dwelt in them.
8And it came to pass on the morrow, when the Philistines came to strip the slain, that they found Saul and his sons fallen in mount Gilboa.
9And when they had stripped him, they took his head, and his armour, and sent into the land of the Philistines round about, to carry tidings unto their idols, and to the people.
10And they put his armour in the house of their gods, and fastened his head in the temple of Dagon.
11And when all Jabeshgilead heard all that the Philistines had done to Saul,
12They arose, all the valiant men, and took away the body of Saul, and the bodies of his sons, and brought them to Jabesh, and buried their bones under the oak in Jabesh, and fasted seven days.
13So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it;
14And enquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.
1Philisthim autem pugnabant contra Israhel fugeruntque viri Israhel Palestinos et ceciderunt vulnerati in monte Gelboe
2cumque adpropinquassent Philisthei persequentes Saul et filios eius percusserunt Ionathan et Abinadab et Melchisuae filios Saul
3et adgravatum est proelium contra Saul inveneruntque eum sagittarii et vulneraverunt iaculis
4et dixit Saul ad armigerum suum evagina gladium tuum et interfice me ne forte veniant incircumcisi isti et inludant mihi noluit autem armiger eius hoc facere timore perterritus arripuit igitur Saul ensem et inruit in eum
5quod cum vidisset armiger eius videlicet mortuum esse Saul inruit etiam ipse in gladium suum et mortuus est
6interiit ergo Saul et tres filii eius et omnis domus illius pariter concidit
7quod cum vidissent viri Israhel qui habitabant in campestribus fugerunt et Saul ac filiis eius mortuis dereliquerunt urbes suas et huc illucque dispersi sunt veneruntque Philisthim et habitaverunt in eis
8die igitur altero detrahentes Philisthim spolia caesorum invenerunt Saul et filios eius iacentes in monte Gelboe
9cumque spoliassent eum et amputassent caput armisque nudassent miserunt in terram suam ut circumferretur et ostenderetur idolorum templis et populis
10arma autem eius consecraverunt in fano dei sui et caput adfixerunt in templo Dagon
11hoc cum audissent viri Iabesgalaad omnia scilicet quae Philisthim fecerunt super Saul
12consurrexerunt singuli virorum fortium et tulerunt cadavera Saul et filiorum eius adtuleruntque ea in Iabes et sepelierunt ossa eorum subter quercum quae erat in Iabes et ieiunaverunt septem diebus
13mortuus est ergo Saul propter iniquitates suas eo quod praevaricatus sit mandatum Domini quod praeceperat et non custodierit illud sed insuper etiam pythonissam consuluerit
14nec speraverit in Domino propter quod et interfecit eum et transtulit regnum eius ad David filium Isai
