Poole's Outline of 1 Samuel 31: The Death of Saul

The Israelites are smitten by the Philistines:  Saul’s sons are slain: Saul is wounded:  he falleth on his own sword; as doth his armour-bearer, 1-6.  The rest flee; and the Philistines possess their towns, and triumph over the dead carcasses, 7-10.  They of Jabesh-gilead by might take down the bodies of Saul and of his sons, and burn them; and mournfully bury their bones, 11-13.
