2 Samuel 1:12
“And they mourned, and wept, and fasted until even, for Saul, and for Jonathan his son, and for the people of the LORD, and for the house of Israel; because they were fallen by the sword.”
The deaths of Saul and Jonathan were tragic. Saul died a premature death because of his unwillingness to repent, and Jonathan died as a direct result of his father’s sin. These were needless deaths.
