1 Chronicles 10:3 And the battle went sore against Saul, and the  archers hit him, and he was wounded of the archers. 

1 Chronicles 10:4  Then 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. 

1 Chronicles 10:5  And when his armourbearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell  likewise on the sword, and died. 

1 Chronicles 10:6 So Saul died, and  his three sons, and all his house died together. 

1 Chronicles 10:7 And  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.  

1 Chronicles 10:8 And 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. 

1 Chronicles 10:9 And 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.

1 Chronicles 10:12 They 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.  

1 Chronicles 10:13 So 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; 

1 Chronicles 10:14  And enquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and  turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.  KJV
