Indeed. In any book of badly-edited fiction or bogus history.

There is the death of a king and two versions of that death.
One version is more credible than the other.
The Amalekite in the story was lying when he spoke to David.

Why is the liar Amelekite in the story? to discredit the Amelelites who were then the local bogey men.
It is only my personal reading of what is for us now a trivial story.

As I said, you're really saying that the entire story with the Amalekite in is made-up nonsense.
