1 Samuel 1:10 Didn't Saul kill himself?

Question: In 2 Samuel 1:10 did he killed him?  I thought Saul killed himself? Answer: We don’t really know for certain, here are two possibilities.  In 1 Samuel 31 it says that Saul fell on his sword and when his armorbearer saw that he was dead and he also fell on his sword and died with Saul.  So it could be that this Amalekite was making up this story to find favor with David, thinking he killed David adversary and his life would be spared.  It could also be that Saul even after falling on his own sword was not dead and this Amalekite finished the job as he stated.  -PG
