1 Samuel 20:24-42

So David
<01732>
hid
<05641> (8735)
himself in the field
<07704>_:
and when the new moon
<02320>
was come, the king
<04428>
sat him down
<03427> (8799)
to eat
<0398> (8800)
meat
<03899>_.
And the king
<04428>
sat
<03427> (8799)
upon his seat
<04186>_,
as at other times
<06471>_,
[even] upon a seat
<04186>
by the wall
<07023>_:
and Jonathan
<03083>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and Abner
<074>
sat
<03427> (8799)
by Saul's
<07586>
side
<06654>_,
and David's
<01732>
place
<04725>
was empty
<06485> (8735)_.
Nevertheless Saul
<07586>
spake
<01696> (8765)
not any thing
<03972>
that day
<03117>_:
for he thought
<0559> (8804)_,
Something hath befallen
<04745>
him, he [is] not
<01115>
clean
<02889>_;
surely he [is] not clean
<02889>_.
And it came to pass on the morrow
<04283>_,
[which was] the second
<08145>
[day] of the month
<02320>_,
that David's
<01732>
place
<04725>
was empty
<06485> (8735)_:
and Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jonathan
<03083>
his son
<01121>_,
Wherefore cometh
<0935> (8804)
not the son
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>
to meat
<03899>_,
neither yesterday
<08543>_,
nor to day
<03117>_?
And Jonathan
<03083>
answered
<06030> (8799)
Saul
<07586>_,
David
<01732>
earnestly
<07592> (8736)
asked
<07592> (8738)
[leave] of me
<05978>
[to go] to Bethlehem
<01035>_:
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let me go
<07971> (8761)_,
I pray thee; for our family
<04940>
hath a sacrifice
<02077>
in the city
<05892>_;
and my brother
<0251>_,
he hath commanded
<06680> (8765)
me [to be there]: and now, if I have found
<04672> (8804)
favour
<02580>
in thine eyes
<05869>_,
let me get away
<04422> (8735)_,
I pray thee, and see
<07200> (8799)
my brethren
<0251>_.
Therefore he cometh
<0935> (8804)
not unto the king's
<04428>
table
<07979>_.
Then Saul's
<07586>
anger
<0639>
was kindled
<02734> (8799)
against Jonathan
<03083>_,
and he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Thou son
<01121>
of the perverse
<05753> (8737)
rebellious
<04780>
[woman], do not I know
<03045> (8804)
that thou hast chosen
<0977> (8802)
the son
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>
to thine own confusion
<01322>_,
and unto the confusion
<01322>
of thy mother's
<0517>
nakedness
<06172>_?
{Thou...: or, Thou perverse rebel: Heb. Son of perverse rebellion}
For as long as
<03117>
the son
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>
liveth
<02425> (8804)
upon the ground
<0127>_,
thou shalt not be established
<03559> (8735)_,
nor thy kingdom
<04438>_.
Wherefore now send
<07971> (8798)
and fetch
<03947> (8798)
him unto me, for he shall surely die
<01121> <04194>_.
{shall...: Heb. is the son of death}
And Jonathan
<03083>
answered
<06030> (8799)
Saul
<07586>
his father
<01>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Wherefore shall he be slain
<04191> (8714)_?
what hath he done
<06213> (8804)_?
And Saul
<07586>
cast
<02904> (8686)
a javelin
<02595>
at him to smite
<05221> (8687)
him: whereby Jonathan
<03083>
knew
<03045> (8799)
that it was determined
<03617>
of his father
<01>
to slay
<04191> (8687)
David
<01732>_.
So Jonathan
<03083>
arose
<06965> (8799)
from the table
<07979>
in fierce
<02750>
anger
<0639>_,
and did eat
<0398> (8804)
no meat
<03899>
the second
<08145>
day
<03117>
of the month
<02320>_:
for he was grieved
<06087> (8738)
for David
<01732>_,
because his father
<01>
had done him shame
<03637> (8689)_.
And it came to pass in the morning
<01242>_,
that Jonathan
<03083>
went out
<03318> (8799)
into the field
<07704>
at the time appointed
<04150>
with David
<01732>_,
and a little
<06996>
lad
<05288>
with him.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto his lad
<05288>_,
Run
<07323> (8798)_,
find out
<04672> (8798)
now the arrows
<02671>
which I shoot
<03384> (8688)_.
[And] as the lad
<05288>
ran
<07323> (8801)_,
he shot
<03384> (8804)
an arrow
<02678>
beyond
<05674> (8687)
him. {beyond...: Heb. to pass over him}
And when the lad
<05288>
was come
<0935> (8799)
to the place
<04725>
of the arrow
<02678>
which Jonathan
<03083>
had shot
<03384> (8804)_,
Jonathan
<03083>
cried
<07121> (8799)
after
<0310>
the lad
<05288>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is] not the arrow
<02678>
beyond
<01973>
thee?
And Jonathan
<03083>
cried
<07121> (8799)
after
<0310>
the lad
<05288>_,
Make speed
<04120>_,
haste
<02363> (8798)_,
stay
<05975> (8799)
not. And Jonathan's
<03083>
lad
<05288>
gathered up
<03950> (8762)
the arrows
<02671> (8675) <02678>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to his master
<0113>_.
But the lad
<05288>
knew
<03045> (8804)
not any thing
<03972>_:
only Jonathan
<03083>
and David
<01732>
knew
<03045> (8804)
the matter
<01697>_.
And Jonathan
<03083>
gave
<05414> (8799)
his artillery
<03627>
unto his lad
<05288>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Go
<03212> (8798)_,
carry
<0935> (8685)
[them] to the city
<05892>_.
{artillery: Heb. instruments} {his lad: Heb. the lad that was his}
[And] as soon as the lad
<05288>
was gone
<0935> (8802)_,
David
<01732>
arose
<06965> (8804)
out of [a place] toward
<0681>
the south
<05045>_,
and fell
<05307> (8799)
on his face
<0639>
to the ground
<0776>_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself three
<07969>
times
<06471>_:
and they kissed
<05401> (8799)
one
<0376>
another
<07453>_,
and wept
<01058> (8799)
one
<0376>
with another
<07453>_,
until David
<01732>
exceeded
<01431> (8689)_.
And Jonathan
<03083>
said
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
Go
<03212> (8798)
in peace
<07965>_,
forasmuch as we have sworn
<07650> (8738)
both
<08147>
of us in the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
be between me and thee, and between my seed
<02233>
and thy seed
<02233>
for
<05704>
ever
<05769>_.
And he arose
<06965> (8799)
and departed
<03212> (8799)_:
and Jonathan
<03083>
went
<0935> (8802)
into the city
<05892>_.
{forasmuch...: or, the LORD be witness of that which etc}
