Context
NETBible

David said to the young man 1  who was telling him this, “How do you know that Saul and his son Jonathan are dead?” 2 

XREF

Pr 14:15; Pr 25:2

NET © Notes

tn In v. 2 he is called simply a “man.” The word used here in v. 5 (so also in vv. 6, 13, 15), though usually referring to a young man or servant, may in this context designate a “fighting” man, i.e., a soldier.

tc Instead of the MT “who was recounting this to him, ‘How do you know that Saul and his son Jonathan are dead?’” the Syriac Peshitta reads “declare to me how Saul and his son Jonathan died.”
