14:1 Now it came to pass upon a day [H3117] , that Jonathan [H3129] the son [H1121] of Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto the young man [H5288] that bare [H5375] his armour [H3627] , Come [H3212] , and let us go over [H5674] to the Philistines' [H6430] garrison [H4673] , that [is] on the other side [H5676] [H1975] . But he told [H5046] not his father [H1] .(it came: or, there was a day)

14:2 And Saul [H7586] tarried [H3427] in the uttermost [H7097] part of Gibeah [H1390] under a pomegranate tree [H7416] which [is] in Migron [H4051] : and the people [H5971] that [were] with him [were] about six [H8337] hundred [H3967] men [H376] ;

14:3 And Ahiah [H281] , the son [H1121] of Ahitub [H285] , Ichabod's [H350] brother [H251] , the son [H1121] of Phinehas [H6372] , the son [H1121] of Eli [H5941] , the LORD'S [H3068] priest [H3548] in Shiloh [H7887] , wearing [H5375] an ephod [H646] . And the people [H5971] knew [H3045] not that Jonathan [H3129] was gone [H1980] .(Ahiah: called Ahimelech)

14:4 And between the passages [H4569] , by which Jonathan [H3129] sought [H1245] to go over [H5674] unto the Philistines' [H6430] garrison [H4673] , [there was] a sharp [H8127] rock [H5553] on the one side [H5676] , and a sharp [H8127] rock [H5553] on the other side [H5676] : and the name [H8034] of the one [H259] [was] Bozez [H949] , and the name [H8034] of the other [H259] Seneh [H5573] .

14:5 The forefront [H8127] of the one [H259] [was] situate [H4690] northward [H6828] over against [H4136] Michmash [H4363] , and the other [H259] southward [H5045] over against [H4136] Gibeah [H1387] .(forefront: Heb. tooth)

14:6 And Jonathan [H3083] said [H559] to the young man [H5288] that bare [H5375] his armour [H3627] , Come [H3212] , and let us go over [H5674] unto the garrison [H4673] of these uncircumcised [H6189] : it may be that the LORD [H3068] will work [H6213] for us: for [there is] no restraint [H4622] to the LORD [H3068] to save [H3467] by many [H7227] or by few [H4592] .

14:7 And his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] said [H559] unto him, Do [H6213] all that [is] in thine heart [H3824] : turn [H5186] thee; behold, I [am] with thee according to thy heart [H3824] .

14:8 Then said [H559] Jonathan [H3083] , Behold, we will pass over [H5674] unto [these] men [H582] , and we will discover [H1540] ourselves unto them.

14:9 If they say [H559] thus unto us, Tarry [H1826] until we come [H5060] to you; then we will stand still [H5975] in our place, and will not go up [H5927] unto them.(Tarry: Heb. Be still)

14:10 But if they say [H559] thus, Come up [H5927] unto us; then we will go up [H5927] : for the LORD [H3068] hath delivered [H5414] them into our hand [H3027] : and this [shall be] a sign [H226] unto us.

14:11 And both [H8147] of them discovered [H1540] themselves unto the garrison [H4673] of the Philistines [H6430] : and the Philistines [H6430] said [H559] , Behold, the Hebrews [H5680] come forth [H3318] out of the holes [H2356] where they had hid [H2244] themselves.

14:12 And the men [H582] of the garrison [H4675] answered [H6030] Jonathan [H3129] and his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] , and said [H559] , Come up [H5927] to us, and we will shew [H3045] you a thing [H1697] . And Jonathan [H3129] said [H559] unto his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] , Come up [H5927] after [H310] me: for the LORD [H3068] hath delivered [H5414] them into the hand [H3027] of Israel [H3478] .

14:13 And Jonathan [H3129] climbed up [H5927] upon his hands [H3027] and upon his feet [H7272] , and his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] after [H310] him: and they fell [H5307] before [H6440] Jonathan [H3129] ; and his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] slew [H4191] after [H310] him.

14:14 And that first [H7223] slaughter [H4347] , which Jonathan [H3129] and his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] made [H5221] , was about twenty [H6242] men [H376] , within as it were an half [H2677] acre [H4618] of land [H7704] , [which] a yoke [H6776] [of oxen might plow].(an: or, half a furrow of an acre of land)

14:15 And there was trembling [H2731] in the host [H4264] , in the field [H7704] , and among all the people [H5971] : the garrison [H4673] , and the spoilers [H7843] , they also trembled [H2729] , and the earth [H776] quaked [H7264] : so it was a very great [H430] trembling [H2731] .(a very: Heb. a trembling of God)

14:16 And the watchmen [H6822] of Saul [H7586] in Gibeah [H1390] of Benjamin [H1144] looked [H7200] ; and, behold, the multitude [H1995] melted away [H4127] , and they went [H3212] on beating down [H1986] [one another].

14:17 Then said [H559] Saul [H7586] unto the people [H5971] that [were] with him, Number [H6485] now, and see [H7200] who is gone [H1980] from us. And when they had numbered [H6485] , behold, Jonathan [H3129] and his armourbearer [H5375] [H3627] [were] not [there].

14:18 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto Ahiah [H281] , Bring hither [H5066] the ark [H727] of God [H430] . For the ark [H727] of God [H430] was at that time [H3117] with the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] .

14:19 And it came to pass, while Saul [H7586] talked [H1696] unto the priest [H3548] , that the noise [H1995] that [was] in the host [H4264] of the Philistines [H6430] went [H3212] on [H1980] and increased [H7227] : and Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto the priest [H3548] , Withdraw [H622] thine hand [H3027] .(noise: or, tumult)

14:20 And Saul [H7586] and all the people [H5971] that [were] with him assembled [H2199] themselves, and they came [H935] to the battle [H4421] : and, behold, every man's [H376] sword [H2719] was against his fellow [H7453] , [and there was] a very [H3966] great [H1419] discomfiture [H4103] .(assembled: Heb. were cried together)

14:21 Moreover the Hebrews [H5680] [that] were with the Philistines [H6430] before [H865] that time [H8032] , which went up [H5927] with them into the camp [H4264] [from the country] round about [H5439] , even they also [turned] to be with the Israelites [H3478] that [were] with Saul [H7586] and Jonathan [H3129] .

14:22 Likewise all the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] which had hid [H2244] themselves in mount [H2022] Ephraim [H669] , [when] they heard [H8085] that the Philistines [H6430] fled [H5127] , even they also followed hard [H1692] after [H310] them in the battle [H4421] .

14:23 So the LORD [H3068] saved [H3467] Israel [H3478] that day [H3117] : and the battle [H4421] passed over [H5674] unto Bethaven [H1007] .

14:24 And the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] were distressed [H5065] that day [H3117] : for Saul [H7586] had adjured [H422] the people [H5971] , saying [H559] , Cursed [H779] [be] the man [H376] that eateth [H398] [any] food [H3899] until evening [H6153] , that I may be avenged [H5358] on mine enemies [H341] . So none of the people [H5971] tasted [H2938] [any] food [H3899] .

14:25 And all [they of] the land [H776] came [H935] to a wood [H3293] ; and there was honey [H1706] upon [H6440] the ground [H7704] .

14:26 And when the people [H5971] were come [H935] into the wood [H3293] , behold, the honey [H1706] dropped [H1982] ; but no man put [H5381] his hand [H3027] to his mouth [H6310] : for the people [H5971] feared [H3372] the oath [H7621] .

14:27 But Jonathan [H3129] heard [H8085] not when his father [H1] charged [H7650] the people [H5971] with the oath [H7650] : wherefore he put forth [H7971] the end [H7097] of the rod [H4294] that [was] in his hand [H3027] , and dipped [H2881] it in an honeycomb [H3295] [H1706] , and put [H7725] his hand [H3027] to his mouth [H6310] ; and his eyes [H5869] were enlightened [H215] .

14:28 Then answered [H6030] one [H376] of the people [H5971] , and said [H559] , Thy father [H1] straitly [H7650] charged [H7650] the people [H5971] with an oath [H7650] , saying [H559] , Cursed [H779] [be] the man [H376] that eateth [H398] [any] food [H3899] this day [H3117] . And the people [H5971] were faint [H5774] .(faint: or, weary)

14:29 Then said [H559] Jonathan [H3129] , My father [H1] hath troubled [H5916] the land [H776] : see [H7200] , I pray you, how mine eyes [H5869] have been enlightened [H215] , because I tasted [H2938] a little [H4592] of this honey [H1706] .

14:30 How much more [H637] , if haply [H3863] the people [H5971] had eaten [H398] freely [H398] to day [H3117] of the spoil [H7998] of their enemies [H341] which they found [H4672] ? for had there not been now a much greater [H7235] slaughter [H4347] among the Philistines [H6430] ?

14:31 And they smote [H5221] the Philistines [H6430] that day [H3117] from Michmash [H4363] to Aijalon [H357] : and the people [H5971] were very [H3966] faint [H5774] .

14:32 And the people [H5971] flew [H5860] [H6213] upon the spoil [H7998] , and took [H3947] sheep [H6629] , and oxen [H1241] , and calves [H1121] , and slew [H7819] [them] on the ground [H776] : and the people [H5971] did eat [H398] [them] with the blood [H1818] .

14:33 Then they told [H5046] Saul [H7586] , saying [H559] , Behold, the people [H5971] sin [H2398] against the LORD [H3068] , in that they eat [H398] with the blood [H1818] . And he said [H559] , Ye have transgressed [H898] : roll [H1556] a great [H1419] stone [H68] unto me this day [H3117] .(transgressed: or, dealt treacherously)

14:34 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , Disperse [H6327] yourselves among the people [H5971] , and say [H559] unto them, Bring me hither [H5066] every man [H376] his ox [H7794] , and every man [H376] his sheep [H7716] , and slay [H7819] [them] here, and eat [H398] ; and sin [H2398] not against the LORD [H3068] in eating [H398] with the blood [H1818] . And all the people [H5971] brought [H5066] every man [H376] his ox [H7794] with him [H3027] that night [H3915] , and slew [H7819] [them] there.(with him: Heb. in his hand)

14:35 And Saul [H7586] built [H1129] an altar [H4196] unto the LORD [H3068] : the same was the first [H2490] altar [H4196] that he built [H1129] unto the LORD [H3068] .(the same: Heb. that altar he began to build unto the LORD)

14:36 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , Let us go down [H3381] after [H310] the Philistines [H6430] by night [H3915] , and spoil [H962] them until the morning [H1242] light [H216] , and let us not leave [H7604] a man [H376] of them. And they said [H559] , Do [H6213] whatsoever seemeth [H5869] good [H2896] unto thee. Then said [H559] the priest [H3548] , Let us draw near [H7126] hither [H1988] unto God [H430] .

14:37 And Saul [H7586] asked [H7592] counsel of God [H430] , Shall I go down [H3381] after [H310] the Philistines [H6430] ? wilt thou deliver [H5414] them into the hand [H3027] of Israel [H3478] ? But he answered [H6030] him not that day [H3117] .

14:38 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , Draw ye near [H5066] hither [H1988] , all the chief [H6438] of the people [H5971] : and know [H3045] and see [H7200] wherein [H4100] this sin [H2403] hath been this day [H3117] .(chief: Heb. corners)

14:39 For, [as] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , which saveth [H3467] Israel [H3478] , though it be [H3426] in Jonathan [H3129] my son [H1121] , he shall surely [H4191] die [H4191] . But [there was] not a man among all the people [H5971] [that] answered [H6030] him.

14:40 Then said [H559] he unto all Israel [H3478] , Be ye on one [H259] side [H5676] , and I and Jonathan [H3129] my son [H1121] will be on the other [H259] side [H5676] . And the people [H5971] said [H559] unto Saul [H7586] , Do [H6213] what seemeth [H5869] good [H2896] unto thee.

14:41 Therefore Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , Give [H3051] a perfect [H8549] [lot]. And Saul [H7586] and Jonathan [H3129] were taken [H3920] : but the people [H5971] escaped [H3318] .(Give: or, Shew the innocent)(escaped: Heb. went forth)

14:42 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , Cast [H5307] [lots] between me and Jonathan [H3129] my son [H1121] . And Jonathan [H3129] was taken [H3920] .

14:43 Then Saul [H7586] said [H559] to Jonathan [H3129] , Tell [H5046] me what thou hast done [H6213] . And Jonathan [H3129] told [H5046] him, and said [H559] , I did but [H2938] taste [H2938] a little [H4592] honey [H1706] with the end [H7097] of the rod [H4294] that [was] in mine hand [H3027] , [and], lo [H2009] , I must die [H4191] .

14:44 And Saul [H7586] answered [H559] , God [H430] do so [H6213] and more also [H3254] : for thou shalt surely [H4191] die [H4191] , Jonathan [H3129] .

14:45 And the people [H5971] said [H559] unto Saul [H7586] , Shall Jonathan [H3129] die [H4191] , who hath wrought [H6213] this great [H1419] salvation [H3444] in Israel [H3478] ? God forbid [H2486] : [as] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , there shall not one hair [H8185] of his head [H7218] fall [H5307] to the ground [H776] ; for he hath wrought [H6213] with God [H430] this day [H3117] . So the people [H5971] rescued [H6299] Jonathan [H3129] , that he died [H4191] not.

14:46 Then Saul [H7586] went up [H5927] from following [H310] the Philistines [H6430] : and the Philistines [H6430] went [H1980] to their own place [H4725] .

14:47 So Saul [H7586] took [H3920] the kingdom [H4410] over Israel [H3478] , and fought [H3898] against all his enemies [H341] on every side [H5439] , against Moab [H4124] , and against the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] , and against Edom [H123] , and against the kings [H4428] of Zobah [H6678] , and against the Philistines [H6430] : and whithersoever he turned [H6437] himself, he vexed [H7561] [them].

14:48 And he gathered [H6213] an host [H2428] , and smote [H5221] the Amalekites [H6002] , and delivered [H5337] Israel [H3478] out of the hands [H3027] of them that spoiled [H8154] them.(gathered: or, wrought mightily)

14:49 Now the sons [H1121] of Saul [H7586] were Jonathan [H3129] , and Ishui [H3440] , and Melchishua [H4444] : and the names [H8034] of his two [H8147] daughters [H1323] [were these]; the name [H8034] of the firstborn [H1067] Merab [H4764] , and the name [H8034] of the younger [H6996] Michal [H4324] :

14:50 And the name [H8034] of Saul's [H7586] wife [H802] [was] Ahinoam [H293] , the daughter [H1323] of Ahimaaz [H290] : and the name [H8034] of the captain [H8269] of his host [H6635] [was] Abner [H74] , the son [H1121] of Ner [H5369] , Saul's [H7586] uncle [H1730] .(Abner: Heb. Abiner)

14:51 And Kish [H7027] [was] the father [H1] of Saul [H7586] ; and Ner [H5369] the father [H1] of Abner [H74] [was] the son [H1121] of Abiel [H22] .

14:52 And there was sore [H2389] war [H4421] against the Philistines [H6430] all the days [H3117] of Saul [H7586] : and when Saul [H7586] saw [H7200] any strong [H1368] man [H376] , or any valiant [H2428] man [H1121] , he took [H622] him unto him.
