Chapter 20

  1. 1. And David
    H1732
    fled
    H1272
    from Naioth
    H5121
    in Ramah,
    H7414
    and came
    H935
    and said
    H559
    before
    H6440
    Jonathan,
    H3083
    What have I done?
    H6213
    what is mine iniquity?
    H5771
    and what is my sin
    H2403
    before
    H6440
    thy father,
    H1
    that he seeketh
    H1245
    my life?
    H5315
  2. 2. And he said
    H559
    unto him, God forbid;
    H2486
    thou shalt not die:
    H4191
    behold, my father
    H1
    will do
    H6213
    H6213
    nothing
    H1697
    either great
    H1419
    or small,
    H6996
    but that he will shew
    H1540
    H241
    it me: and why should my father
    H1
    hide
    H5641
    this thing
    H1697
    from me? it is not so.
  3. 3. And David
    H1732
    sware
    H7650
    moreover, and said,
    H559
    Thy father
    H1
    certainly
    H3045
    knoweth
    H3045
    that I have found
    H4672
    grace
    H2580
    in thine eyes;
    H5869
    and he saith,
    H559
    Let not Jonathan
    H3083
    know
    H3045
    this, lest he be grieved:
    H6087
    but truly
    H199
    as the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    and as thy soul
    H5315
    liveth,
    H2416
    there is but a step
    H6587
    between me and death.
    H4194
  4. 4. Then said
    H559
    Jonathan
    H3083
    unto David,
    H1732
    Whatsoever thy soul
    H5315
    desireth,
    H559
    I will even do
    H6213
    it for thee.
  5. 5. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    unto Jonathan,
    H3083
    Behold, to morrow
    H4279
    is the new moon,
    H2320
    and I should not fail
    H3427
    to sit
    H3427
    with the king
    H4428
    at meat:
    H398
    but let me go,
    H7971
    that I may hide
    H5641
    myself in the field
    H7704
    unto the third
    H7992
    day at even.
    H6153
  6. 6. If thy father
    H1
    at all
    H6485
    miss
    H6485
    me, then say,
    H559
    David
    H1732
    earnestly
    H7592
    asked
    H7592
    leave of me that he might run
    H7323
    to Bethlehem
    H1035
    his city:
    H5892
    for there is a yearly
    H3117
    sacrifice
    H2077
    there for all the family.
    H4940
  7. 7. If he say
    H559
    thus, It is well;
    H2896
    thy servant
    H5650
    shall have peace:
    H7965
    but if he be very
    H2734
    wroth,
    H2734
    then be sure
    H3045
    that evil
    H7451
    is determined
    H3615
    by him.
  8. 8. Therefore thou shalt deal
    H6213
    kindly
    H2617
    with thy servant;
    H5650
    for thou hast brought
    H935
    thy servant
    H5650
    into a covenant
    H1285
    of the LORD
    H3068
    with thee: notwithstanding, if there be
    H3426
    in me iniquity,
    H5771
    slay
    H4191
    me thyself; for why shouldest thou bring
    H935
    me to thy father?
    H1
  9. 9. And Jonathan
    H3083
    said,
    H559
    Far be it from thee:
    H2486
    for if I knew
    H3045
    certainly
    H3045
    that evil
    H7451
    were determined
    H3615
    by my father
    H1
    to come
    H935
    upon thee, then would not I tell
    H5046
    it thee?
  10. 10. Then said
    H559
    David
    H1732
    to Jonathan,
    H3083
    Who shall tell
    H5046
    me? or what if thy father
    H1
    answer
    H6030
    thee roughly?
    H7186
  11. 11. And Jonathan
    H3083
    said
    H559
    unto David,
    H1732
    Come,
    H3212
    and let us go out
    H3318
    into the field.
    H7704
    And they went out
    H3318
    both
    H8147
    of them into the field.
    H7704
  12. 12. And Jonathan
    H3083
    said
    H559
    unto David,
    H1732
    O LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    when I have sounded
    H2713
    my father
    H1
    about to morrow
    H4279
    any time,
    H6256
    or the third
    H7992
    day, and, behold, if there be good
    H2895
    toward David,
    H1732
    and I then send
    H7971
    not unto thee, and shew
    H1540
    H241
    it thee;
  13. 13. The LORD
    H3068
    do
    H6213
    so
    H3541
    and much more
    H3254
    to Jonathan:
    H3083
    but if it please
    H3190
    my father
    H1
    to do thee evil,
    H7451
    then I will shew
    H1540
    H241
    it thee, and send thee away,
    H7971
    that thou mayest go
    H1980
    in peace:
    H7965
    and the LORD
    H3068
    be with thee, as he hath been with my father.
    H1
  14. 14. And thou shalt not only while yet
    H518
    I live
    H2416
    shew
    H6213
    me the kindness
    H2617
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    that I die
    H4191
    not:
  15. 15. But also thou shalt not cut off
    H3772
    thy kindness
    H2617
    from my house
    H1004
    for
    H5704
    ever:
    H5769
    no, not when the LORD
    H3068
    hath cut off
    H3772
    the enemies
    H341
    of David
    H1732
    every one
    H376
    from the face
    H6440
    of the earth.
    H127
  16. 16. So Jonathan
    H3083
    made
    H3772
    a covenant with the house
    H1004
    of David,
    H1732
    saying, Let the LORD
    H3068
    even require
    H1245
    it at the hand
    H3027
    of David's
    H1732
    enemies.
    H341
  17. 17. And Jonathan
    H3083
    caused David
    H1732
    to swear
    H7650
    again,
    H3254
    because he loved
    H160
    him: for he loved
    H157
    him as he loved
    H160
    his own soul.
    H5315
  18. 18. Then Jonathan
    H3083
    said
    H559
    to David,
    H1732
    To morrow
    H4279
    is the new moon:
    H2320
    and thou shalt be missed,
    H6485
    because thy seat
    H4186
    will be empty.
    H6485
  19. 19. And when thou hast stayed three days,
    H8027
    then thou shalt go down
    H3381
    quickly,
    H3966
    and come
    H935
    to the place
    H4725
    where thou didst hide
    H5641
    thyself when
    H3117
    the business
    H4639
    was in hand, and shalt remain
    H3427
    by
    H681
    the stone
    H68
    Ezel.
    H237
  20. 20. And I will shoot
    H3384
    three
    H7969
    arrows
    H2671
    on the side
    H6654
    thereof, as though I shot
    H7971
    at a mark.
    H4307
  21. 21. And, behold, I will send
    H7971
    a lad,
    H5288
    saying, Go,
    H3212
    find out
    H4672
    the arrows.
    H2671
    If I expressly
    H559
    say
    H559
    unto the lad,
    H5288
    Behold, the arrows
    H2671
    are on this side of thee, take
    H3947
    them; then come
    H935
    thou: for there is peace
    H7965
    to thee, and no hurt;
    H1697
    as the LORD
    H3068
    liveth.
    H2416
  22. 22. But if I say
    H559
    thus unto the young man,
    H5958
    Behold, the arrows
    H2671
    are beyond
    H1973
    thee; go thy way:
    H3212
    for the LORD
    H3068
    hath sent thee away.
    H7971
  23. 23. And as touching the matter
    H1697
    which thou and I have spoken
    H1696
    of, behold, the LORD
    H3068
    be between thee and me for
    H5704
    ever.
    H5769
  24. 24. So David
    H1732
    hid
    H5641
    himself in the field:
    H7704
    and when the new moon
    H2320
    was come, the king
    H4428
    sat him down
    H3427
    to eat
    H398
    meat.
    H3899
  25. 25. And the king
    H4428
    sat
    H3427
    upon his seat,
    H4186
    as at other times,
    H6471
    even upon a seat
    H4186
    by the wall:
    H7023
    and Jonathan
    H3083
    arose,
    H6965
    and Abner
    H74
    sat
    H3427
    by Saul's
    H7586
    side,
    H6654
    and David's
    H1732
    place
    H4725
    was empty.
    H6485
  26. 26. Nevertheless Saul
    H7586
    spake
    H1696
    not any thing
    H3972
    that day:
    H3117
    for he thought,
    H559
    Something hath befallen
    H4745
    him, he is not
    H1115
    clean;
    H2889
    surely he is not clean.
    H2889
  27. 27. And it came to pass on the morrow,
    H4283
    which was the second
    H8145
    day of the month,
    H2320
    that David's
    H1732
    place
    H4725
    was empty:
    H6485
    and Saul
    H7586
    said
    H559
    unto Jonathan
    H3083
    his son,
    H1121
    Wherefore cometh
    H935
    not the son
    H1121
    of Jesse
    H3448
    to meat,
    H3899
    neither yesterday,
    H8543
    nor to day?
    H3117
  28. 28. And Jonathan
    H3083
    answered
    H6030
    Saul,
    H7586
    David
    H1732
    earnestly
    H7592
    asked
    H7592
    leave of me
    H5978
    to go to Bethlehem:
    H1035
  29. 29. And he said,
    H559
    Let me go,
    H7971
    I pray thee; for our family
    H4940
    hath a sacrifice
    H2077
    in the city;
    H5892
    and my brother,
    H251
    he hath commanded
    H6680
    me to be there: and now, if I have found
    H4672
    favour
    H2580
    in thine eyes,
    H5869
    let me get away,
    H4422
    I pray thee, and see
    H7200
    my brethren.
    H251
    Therefore he cometh
    H935
    not unto the king's
    H4428
    table.
    H7979
  30. 30. Then Saul's
    H7586
    anger
    H639
    was kindled
    H2734
    against Jonathan,
    H3083
    and he said
    H559
    unto him, Thou son
    H1121
    of the perverse
    H5753
    rebellious
    H4780
    woman, do not I know
    H3045
    that thou hast chosen
    H977
    the son
    H1121
    of Jesse
    H3448
    to thine own confusion,
    H1322
    and unto the confusion
    H1322
    of thy mother's
    H517
    nakedness?
    H6172
  31. 31. For as long as
    H3117
    the son
    H1121
    of Jesse
    H3448
    liveth
    H2425
    upon the ground,
    H127
    thou shalt not be established,
    H3559
    nor thy kingdom.
    H4438
    Wherefore now send
    H7971
    and fetch
    H3947
    him unto me, for he shall surely die.
    H4194
    H1121
  32. 32. And Jonathan
    H3083
    answered
    H6030
    Saul
    H7586
    his father,
    H1
    and said
    H559
    unto him, Wherefore shall he be slain?
    H4191
    what hath he done?
    H6213
  33. 33. And Saul
    H7586
    cast
    H2904
    a javelin
    H2595
    at him to smite
    H5221
    him: whereby Jonathan
    H3083
    knew
    H3045
    that it was determined
    H3617
    of his father
    H1
    to slay
    H4191
    David.
    H1732
  34. 34. So Jonathan
    H3083
    arose
    H6965
    from the table
    H7979
    in fierce
    H2750
    anger,
    H639
    and did eat
    H398
    no meat
    H3899
    the second
    H8145
    day
    H3117
    of the month:
    H2320
    for he was grieved
    H6087
    for David,
    H1732
    because his father
    H1
    had done him shame.
    H3637
  35. 35. And it came to pass in the morning,
    H1242
    that Jonathan
    H3083
    went out
    H3318
    into the field
    H7704
    at the time appointed
    H4150
    with David,
    H1732
    and a little
    H6996
    lad
    H5288
    with him.
  36. 36. And he said
    H559
    unto his lad,
    H5288
    Run,
    H7323
    find out
    H4672
    now the arrows
    H2671
    which I shoot.
    H3384
    And as the lad
    H5288
    ran,
    H7323
    he shot
    H3384
    an arrow
    H2678
    beyond
    H5674
    him.
  37. 37. And when the lad
    H5288
    was come
    H935
    to the place
    H4725
    of the arrow
    H2678
    which Jonathan
    H3083
    had shot,
    H3384
    Jonathan
    H3083
    cried
    H7121
    after
    H310
    the lad,
    H5288
    and said,
    H559
    Is not the arrow
    H2678
    beyond
    H1973
    thee?
  38. 38. And Jonathan
    H3083
    cried
    H7121
    after
    H310
    the lad,
    H5288
    Make speed,
    H4120
    haste,
    H2363
    stay
    H5975
    not. And Jonathan's
    H3083
    lad
    H5288
    gathered up
    H3950
    the arrows,
    H2671
    H2678
    and came
    H935
    to his master.
    H113
  39. 39. But the lad
    H5288
    knew
    H3045
    not any thing:
    H3972
    only Jonathan
    H3083
    and David
    H1732
    knew
    H3045
    the matter.
    H1697
  40. 40. And Jonathan
    H3083
    gave
    H5414
    his artillery
    H3627
    unto his lad,
    H5288
    and said
    H559
    unto him, Go,
    H3212
    carry
    H935
    them to the city.
