2 Samuel 1:21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

21 O mountains of Gilboa,
    upon you be neither dew nor rain,
    nor surging from the deeps![a]
Defiled there the warriors’ shields,
    the shield of Saul—no longer anointed with oil!

Footnotes:

  1. 1:21 Surging from the deeps: this conjectural reading of the Hebrew yields a parallelism with dew and rain: the mountains where the warriors have fallen in battle are to be desiccated, deprived of water from above (rain, dew) and below (the primordial deeps).
