1Samuel 14
King James Version (with Strongs Data)
14Now it came to pass upon a dayH3117, that JonathanH3129 the sonH1121 of SaulH7586 saidH559 unto the young manH5288 that bareH5375 his armourH3627, ComeH3212, and let us go overH5674 to the Philistines'H6430 garrisonH4673, that is on the other sideH5676H1975. But he toldH5046 not his fatherH1. 2And SaulH7586 tarriedH3427 in the uttermostH7097 part of GibeahH1390 under a pomegranate treeH7416 which is in MigronH4051: and the peopleH5971 that were with him were about sixH8337 hundredH3967 menH376; 3And AhiahH281, the sonH1121 of AhitubH285, Ichabod'sH350 brotherH251, the sonH1121 of PhinehasH6372, the sonH1121 of EliH5941, the LORD'SH3068 priestH3548 in ShilohH7887, wearingH5375 an ephodH646. And the peopleH5971 knewH3045 not that JonathanH3129 was goneH1980. 4And between the passagesH4569, by which JonathanH3129 soughtH1245 to go overH5674 unto the Philistines'H6430 garrisonH4673, there was a sharpH8127 rockH5553 on the one sideH5676, and a sharpH8127 rockH5553 on the other sideH5676: and the nameH8034 of the oneH259 was BozezH949, and the nameH8034 of the otherH259 SenehH5573. 5The forefrontH8127 of the oneH259 was situateH4690 northwardH6828 over againstH4136 MichmashH4363, and the otherH259 southwardH5045 over againstH4136 GibeahH1387. 6And JonathanH3083 saidH559 to the young manH5288 that bareH5375 his armourH3627, ComeH3212, and let us go overH5674 unto the garrisonH4673 of these uncircumcisedH6189: it may be that the LORDH3068 will workH6213 for us: for there is no restraintH4622 to the LORDH3068 to saveH3467 by manyH7227 or by fewH4592. 7And his armourbearerH5375H3627 saidH559 unto him, DoH6213 all that is in thine heartH3824: turnH5186 thee; behold, I am with thee according to thy heartH3824. 8Then saidH559 JonathanH3083, Behold, we will pass overH5674 unto these menH582, and we will discoverH1540 ourselves unto them. 9If they sayH559 thus unto us, TarryH1826 until we comeH5060 to you; then we will stand stillH5975 in our place, and will not go upH5927 unto them. 10But if they sayH559 thus, Come upH5927 unto us; then we will go upH5927: for the LORDH3068 hath deliveredH5414 them into our handH3027: and this shall be a signH226 unto us. 11And bothH8147 of them discoveredH1540 themselves unto the garrisonH4673 of the PhilistinesH6430: and the PhilistinesH6430 saidH559, Behold, the HebrewsH5680 come forthH3318 out of the holesH2356 where they had hidH2244 themselves. 12And the menH582 of the garrisonH4675 answeredH6030 JonathanH3129 and his armourbearerH5375H3627, and saidH559, Come upH5927 to us, and we will shewH3045 you a thingH1697. And JonathanH3129 saidH559 unto his armourbearerH5375H3627, Come upH5927 afterH310 me: for the LORDH3068 hath deliveredH5414 them into the handH3027 of IsraelH3478. 13And JonathanH3129 climbed upH5927 upon his handsH3027 and upon his feetH7272, and his armourbearerH5375H3627 afterH310 him: and they fellH5307 beforeH6440 JonathanH3129; and his armourbearerH5375H3627 slewH4191 afterH310 him. 14And that firstH7223 slaughterH4347, which JonathanH3129 and his armourbearerH5375H3627 madeH5221, was about twentyH6242 menH376, within as it were an halfH2677 acreH4618 of landH7704, which a yokeH6776 of oxen might plow. 15And there was tremblingH2731 in the hostH4264, in the fieldH7704, and among all the peopleH5971: the garrisonH4673, and the spoilersH7843, they also trembledH2729, and the earthH776 quakedH7264: so it was a very greatH430 tremblingH2731. 16And the watchmenH6822 of SaulH7586 in GibeahH1390 of BenjaminH1144 lookedH7200; and, behold, the multitudeH1995 melted awayH4127, and they wentH3212 on beating downH1986 one another. 17Then saidH559 SaulH7586 unto the peopleH5971 that were with him, NumberH6485 now, and seeH7200 who is goneH1980 from us. And when they had numberedH6485, behold, JonathanH3129 and his armourbearerH5375H3627 were not there. 18And SaulH7586 saidH559 unto AhiahH281, Bring hitherH5066 the arkH727 of GodH430. For the arkH727 of GodH430 was at that timeH3117 with the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478. 19And it came to pass, while SaulH7586 talkedH1696 unto the priestH3548, that the noiseH1995 that was in the hostH4264 of the PhilistinesH6430 wentH3212 onH1980 and increasedH7227: and SaulH7586 saidH559 unto the priestH3548, WithdrawH622 thine handH3027. 20And SaulH7586 and all the peopleH5971 that were with him assembledH2199 themselves, and they cameH935 to the battleH4421: and, behold, every man'sH376 swordH2719 was against his fellowH7453, and there was a veryH3966 greatH1419 discomfitureH4103. 21Moreover the HebrewsH5680 that were with the PhilistinesH6430 beforeH865 that timeH8032, which went upH5927 with them into the campH4264 from the country round aboutH5439, even they also turned to be with the IsraelitesH3478 that were with SaulH7586 and JonathanH3129. 22Likewise all the menH376 of IsraelH3478 which had hidH2244 themselves in mountH2022 EphraimH669, when they heardH8085 that the PhilistinesH6430 fledH5127, even they also followed hardH1692 afterH310 them in the battleH4421. 23So the LORDH3068 savedH3467 IsraelH3478 that dayH3117: and the battleH4421 passed overH5674 unto BethavenH1007. 24And the menH376 of IsraelH3478 were distressedH5065 that dayH3117: for SaulH7586 had adjuredH422 the peopleH5971, sayingH559, CursedH779 be the manH376 that eatethH398 any foodH3899 until eveningH6153, that I may be avengedH5358 on mine enemiesH341. So none of the peopleH5971 tastedH2938 any foodH3899. 25And all they of the landH776 cameH935 to a woodH3293; and there was honeyH1706 uponH6440 the groundH7704. 26And when the peopleH5971 were comeH935 into the woodH3293, behold, the honeyH1706 droppedH1982; but no man putH5381 his handH3027 to his mouthH6310: for the peopleH5971 fearedH3372 the oathH7621. 27But JonathanH3129 heardH8085 not when his fatherH1 chargedH7650 the peopleH5971 with the oathH7650: wherefore he put forthH7971 the endH7097 of the rodH4294 that was in his handH3027, and dippedH2881 it in an honeycombH3295H1706, and putH7725 his handH3027 to his mouthH6310; and his eyesH5869 were enlightenedH215. 28Then answeredH6030 oneH376 of the peopleH5971, and saidH559, Thy fatherH1 straitlyH7650 chargedH7650 the peopleH5971 with an oathH7650, sayingH559, CursedH779 be the manH376 that eatethH398 any foodH3899 this dayH3117. And the peopleH5971 were faintH5774. 29Then saidH559 JonathanH3129, My fatherH1 hath troubledH5916 the landH776: seeH7200, I pray you, how mine eyesH5869 have been enlightenedH215, because I tastedH2938 a littleH4592 of this honeyH1706. 30How much moreH637, if haplyH3863 the peopleH5971 had eatenH398 freelyH398 to dayH3117 of the spoilH7998 of their enemiesH341 which they foundH4672? for had there not been now a much greaterH7235 slaughterH4347 among the PhilistinesH6430? 31And they smoteH5221 the PhilistinesH6430 that dayH3117 from MichmashH4363 to AijalonH357: and the peopleH5971 were veryH3966 faintH5774. 32And the peopleH5971 flewH5860H6213 upon the spoilH7998, and tookH3947 sheepH6629, and oxenH1241, and calvesH1121, and slewH7819 them on the groundH776: and the peopleH5971 did eatH398 them with the bloodH1818. 33Then they toldH5046 SaulH7586, sayingH559, Behold, the peopleH5971 sinH2398 against the LORDH3068, in that they eatH398 with the bloodH1818. And he saidH559, Ye have transgressedH898: rollH1556 a greatH1419 stoneH68 unto me this dayH3117. 34And SaulH7586 saidH559, DisperseH6327 yourselves among the peopleH5971, and sayH559 unto them, Bring me hitherH5066 every manH376 his oxH7794, and every manH376 his sheepH7716, and slayH7819 them here, and eatH398; and sinH2398 not against the LORDH3068 in eatingH398 with the bloodH1818. And all the peopleH5971 broughtH5066 every manH376 his oxH7794 with himH3027 that nightH3915, and slewH7819 them there. 35And SaulH7586 builtH1129 an altarH4196 unto the LORDH3068: the same was the firstH2490 altarH4196 that he builtH1129 unto the LORDH3068. 36And SaulH7586 saidH559, Let us go downH3381 afterH310 the PhilistinesH6430 by nightH3915, and spoilH962 them until the morningH1242 lightH216, and let us not leaveH7604 a manH376 of them. And they saidH559, DoH6213 whatsoever seemethH5869 goodH2896 unto thee. Then saidH559 the priestH3548, Let us draw nearH7126 hitherH1988 unto GodH430. 37And SaulH7586 askedH7592 counsel of GodH430, Shall I go downH3381 afterH310 the PhilistinesH6430? wilt thou deliverH5414 them into the handH3027 of IsraelH3478? But he answeredH6030 him not that dayH3117. 38And SaulH7586 saidH559, Draw ye nearH5066 hitherH1988, all the chiefH6438 of the peopleH5971: and knowH3045 and seeH7200 whereinH4100 this sinH2403 hath been this dayH3117. 39For, as the LORDH3068 livethH2416, which savethH3467 IsraelH3478, though it beH3426 in JonathanH3129 my sonH1121, he shall surelyH4191 dieH4191. But there was not a man among all the peopleH5971 that answeredH6030 him. 40Then saidH559 he unto all IsraelH3478, Be ye on oneH259 sideH5676, and I and JonathanH3129 my sonH1121 will be on the otherH259 sideH5676. And the peopleH5971 saidH559 unto SaulH7586, DoH6213 what seemethH5869 goodH2896 unto thee. 41Therefore SaulH7586 saidH559 unto the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478, GiveH3051 a perfectH8549 lot. And SaulH7586 and JonathanH3129 were takenH3920: but the peopleH5971 escapedH3318. 42And SaulH7586 saidH559, CastH5307 lots between me and JonathanH3129 my sonH1121. And JonathanH3129 was takenH3920. 43Then SaulH7586 saidH559 to JonathanH3129, TellH5046 me what thou hast doneH6213. And JonathanH3129 toldH5046 him, and saidH559, I did butH2938 tasteH2938 a littleH4592 honeyH1706 with the endH7097 of the rodH4294 that was in mine handH3027, and, loH2009, I must dieH4191. 44And SaulH7586 answeredH559, GodH430 do soH6213 and more alsoH3254: for thou shalt surelyH4191 dieH4191, JonathanH3129. 45And the peopleH5971 saidH559 unto SaulH7586, Shall JonathanH3129 dieH4191, who hath wroughtH6213 this greatH1419 salvationH3444 in IsraelH3478? God forbidH2486: as the LORDH3068 livethH2416, there shall not one hairH8185 of his headH7218 fallH5307 to the groundH776; for he hath wroughtH6213 with GodH430 this dayH3117. So the peopleH5971 rescuedH6299 JonathanH3129, that he diedH4191 not. 46Then SaulH7586 went upH5927 from followingH310 the PhilistinesH6430: and the PhilistinesH6430 wentH1980 to their own placeH4725. 47So SaulH7586 tookH3920 the kingdomH4410 over IsraelH3478, and foughtH3898 against all his enemiesH341 on every sideH5439, against MoabH4124, and against the childrenH1121 of AmmonH5983, and against EdomH123, and against the kingsH4428 of ZobahH6678, and against the PhilistinesH6430: and whithersoever he turnedH6437 himself, he vexedH7561 them. 48And he gatheredH6213 an hostH2428, and smoteH5221 the AmalekitesH6002, and deliveredH5337 IsraelH3478 out of the handsH3027 of them that spoiledH8154 them. 49Now the sonsH1121 of SaulH7586 were JonathanH3129, and IshuiH3440, and MelchishuaH4444: and the namesH8034 of his twoH8147 daughtersH1323 were these; the nameH8034 of the firstbornH1067 MerabH4764, and the nameH8034 of the youngerH6996 MichalH4324: 50And the nameH8034 of Saul'sH7586 wifeH802 was AhinoamH293, the daughterH1323 of AhimaazH290: and the nameH8034 of the captainH8269 of his hostH6635 was AbnerH74, the sonH1121 of NerH5369, Saul'sH7586 uncleH1730. 51And KishH7027 was the fatherH1 of SaulH7586; and NerH5369 the fatherH1 of AbnerH74 was the sonH1121 of AbielH22. 52And there was soreH2389 warH4421 against the PhilistinesH6430 all the daysH3117 of SaulH7586: and when SaulH7586 sawH7200 any strongH1368 manH376, or any valiantH2428 manH1121, he tookH622 him unto him.
