1 Samuel 20:2

NET ©

Jonathan said to him, “By no means are you going to die! My father does nothing large or small without making me aware of it. Why would my father hide this matter from me? It just won’t happen!”

NIV ©

"Never!" Jonathan replied. "You are not going to die! Look, my father doesn’t do anything, great or small, without confiding in me. Why should he hide this from me? It’s not so!"

NASB ©

He said to him, "Far from it, you shall not die. Behold, my father does nothing either great or small without disclosing it to me. So why should my father hide this thing from me? It is not so!"

NLT ©

"That’s not true!" Jonathan protested. "I’m sure he’s not planning any such thing, for he always tells me everything he’s going to do, even the little things. I know he wouldn’t hide something like this from me. It just isn’t so!"

"Nothing," said Jonathan. "You've done nothing wrong. And you're not going to die. Really, you're not! My father tells me everything. He does nothing, whether big or little, without confiding in me. So why would he do this behind my back? It can't be."

BBE ©

And he said to him, Far be the thought: you will not be put to death: see, my father does nothing, great or small, without giving me word of it: would he keep this secret from me? It is not so.

NRSV ©

He said to him, "Far from it! You shall not die. My father does nothing either great or small without disclosing it to me; and why should my father hide this from me? Never!"

NKJV ©

So Jonathan said to him, "By no means! You shall not die! Indeed, my father will do nothing either great or small without first telling me. And why should my father hide this thing from me? It is not so !"

KJV
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, God forbid
<02486>_;
thou shalt not die
<04191> (8799)_:
behold, my father
<01>
will do
<06213> (8799) (8675) <06213> (8804)
nothing
<01697>
either great
<01419>
or small
<06996>_,
but that he will shew
<01540> (8799) <0241>
it me: and why should my father
<01>
hide
<05641> (8686)
this thing
<01697>
from me? it [is] not [so]. {shew...: Heb. uncover mine ear}

NET © Notes

tn Heb “he”; the referent (Jonathan) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tc The translation follows the Qere, many medieval Hebrew mss, and the ancient versions in reading “he will not do,” rather than the Kethib of the MT (“do to him”).

tn Heb “without uncovering my ear.”
