14:25 Now the whole army 1 entered the forest and there was honey on the ground. 2 14:26 When the army entered the forest, they saw 3 the honey flowing, but no one ate any of it, 4 for the army was afraid of the oath.
1 Samuel 14:29Context
14:29 Then Jonathan said, “My father has caused trouble for the land. See how my eyes gleamed 5 when I tasted just a little of this honey.
1 Samuel 14:43Context
1 tn Heb “all the land.”
2 tn Heb “the surface of the field.”
3 tn Heb “and the army entered the forest, and look!”
4 tn Heb “and there was no one putting his hand to his mouth.”
6 tn Heb “Look, I, I will die.” Apparently Jonathan is acquiescing to his anticipated fate of death. However, the words may be taken as sarcastic (“Here I am about to die!”) or as a question, “Must I now die?” (cf. NAB, NIV, NCV, NLT).
