CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The Amalekite was one of those who came "to strip the slain" on "the morrow" after the battle 1 Samuel 31:8, and had the luck to find Saul and possess himself of his crown and bracelet. He probably started off immediately to seek David, and invented the above story, possibly having heard from some Israelite prisoner an account of what really did happen.

2 Samuel 1:9
"Then he said to me, 'Please stand beside me and kill me, for agony has seized me because my life still lingers in me.'
