How are the mighty fallen (2 Samuel 1:19)



Picture description:
Saul was killed
Picture copyright:V. Gilbert and Arlisle F. Beers
Bible Verse:
Meaning:
This expression is used when we gloat over, or quite pleased to see the fall of someone famous or important.
Origin and Application:
“How have the mighty fallen!” Cried David, the great King of Israel as he mourned over the death of his predecessor, King Saul, and his son Jonathon who was a very dear friend of David. Saul was anointed by the Lord as King of Israel, but he gradually deviated from God’s path. More than once, because of his jealousy he tried to kill David. In the end, he died together with his three sons in a battle with the Philistines.
Example:
Jane: One of the directors of our company was forced to resign after he had been charged by the police. Tina: How are the mighty fallen!
Keywords :
