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).

    the shield of Saul—no longer rubbed with oil.
