1 Samuel 20:3


20:3 Taking an oath, David again 1  said, “Your father is very much aware of the fact 2  that I have found favor with you, and he has thought, 3  ‘Don’t let Jonathan know about this, or he will be upset.’ But as surely as the Lord lives and you live, there is about one step between me and death!”

1 Samuel 26:16

26:16 This failure on your part isn’t good! 4  As surely as the Lord lives, you people who have not protected your lord, the Lord’s chosen one, are as good as dead! 5  Now look where the king’s spear and the jug of water that was by his head are!”

1 Samuel 29:6


29:6 So Achish summoned David and said to him, “As surely as the Lord lives, you are an honest man, and I am glad to have you 6  serving 7  with me in the army. 8  I have found no fault with you from the day that you first came to me until the present time. But in the opinion 9  of the leaders, you are not reliable. 10
