And David lamented with this lamentation over Saul, and over Jonathan his son...:

The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places, how are the mighty fallen... Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided. They were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions... How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished (II Sam. 1:17, 19, 23).
