{1 Samuel 18:1} And it came to pass, x1961 when he had made an end 3615 z8763 of speaking 1696 z8763 unto x413 Saul, 7586 that the soul 5315 of Jonathan 3083 was knit 7194 z8738 with the soul 5315 of David, 1732 and Jonathan 3083 loved 157 z8799 him as his own soul. 5315
the soul of Jonathan:
The modesty, piety, and courage of David were so congenial to the character of the amiable Jonathan, that they attracted his most cordial esteem and affection; so that the most intimate friendship subsisted between them from that time, and they loved each other with pure hearts fervently. Their friendship could not be affected by the common vicissitudes of life; and it exemplifies by fact what the ancients have written on the subject.
Την φιλιαν ισοτητα ειναι, και μιαν ψυχην τον φιλον ετερον αυτον. "Friendship is an entire sameness, and one soul. A friend is another self." "Now it came to pass¹ upon a day,ª that Jonathan²¹ the sonª of Saulª saidª° unto¹ the young manª that bareª° his armour,ª Come,²°¹ and let us go overª° to¹ the Philistines'ª garrison,ª that¹ [is] on the other side.ªª¹ But he toldª° not¹ his father.ª ... And that firstª slaughter,ª which¹ Jonathan²¹ and his armourbearerªª° made,ª° was¹ about twentyª men,ª within as it were an halfª acreª of land,ª [which] a yokeª [of oxen might plow]." {1Sm 14:1-14} + "And the peopleª saidª° unto¹ Saul,ª Shall Jonathan²¹ die,ª° who¹ hath wroughtª° this¹ greatª salvationª in Israel?ª God forbid:ª [as] the LORDª liveth,ª there shall not¹ one hairª¹ of his headª fallª° to the ground;ª for¹ he hath wroughtª° with¹ Godª this¹ day.ª So the peopleª rescuedª°¹ Jonathan,²¹ that he diedª° not.¹" {1Sm 14:45} + "Now¹ therefore when I comeª° to¹ thy servantª my father,ª and the ladª [be] not¹ with¹ us; seeing that his lifeª is bound upª° in the lad's life;ª" {Gen 44:30} + "So all¹ the menª of Israelª were gatheredª° against¹ the city,ª knit togetherª as oneª man.ª" {Jdg 20:11} + "And Davidª went outª° to meetª them, and answeredª° and saidª° unto them, If¹ ye be comeª° peaceablyª unto¹ me to helpª° me, mine heartª shall be¹ knitª unto¹ you: but if¹ [ye be come] to betrayª° me to mine enemies,ª seeing [there is] noª wrongª in mine hands,ª the Godª of our fathersª lookª° [thereon], and rebukeª° [it]." {1Ch 12:17} + "Teachª° me thy way,ª O LORD;ª I will walkª° in thy truth:ª uniteª° my heartª to fearª° thy name.ª" {Psa 86:11} + "Thatª theirª heartsª might be comforted,ª° being knit togetherª° inª love,ª andª untoª allª richesª of the¹ full assuranceª of understanding,ª toª the acknowledgementª of the¹ mysteryª of God,ª andª of the Father,ª andª of Christ;ª" {Col 2:2}
loved him:
"Then Jonathanª and Davidª madeª° a covenant,ª because he loved²¹ him as his own soul.ª" {1Sm 18:3} + "But Jonathanª Saul'sª sonª delightedª° muchª in David:ª and Jonathanª toldª° David,ª saying,ª° Saulª my fatherª seekethª° to killª° thee: now¹ therefore, I pray thee,¹ take heed²° to thyself¹ until the morning,ª and abideª° in a secretª [place], and hide²° thyself:¹" {1Sm 19:2} + "And Jonathanª caused¹ Davidª to swearª° again,ª° because he lovedª him: for¹ he lovedª° him as he lovedª his own soul.ª" {1Sm 20:17} + "If¹ thy brother,ª the son²¹ of thy mother,ª or¹ thy son,ª or¹ thy daughter,ª or¹ the wifeª of thy bosom,ª or¹ thy friend,ª which¹ [is] as thine own soul,ª enticeª° thee secretly,ª saying,ª° Let us go²°¹ and serveª° otherª gods,ª which¹ thou hast not¹ known,ª° thou,¹ nor thy fathers;ª" {Deu 13:6} + "I am distressedª° for¹ thee, my brotherª Jonathan:ª veryª pleasantª° hast thou been unto me: thy loveª to me was wonderful,ª° passing the loveª¹ of women.ª" {2Sm 1:26} + "A manª [that hath] friendsª must shew himself friendly:ª° and there isª a friendª° [that] sticketh closerª than a brother.ª¹" {Prv 18:24}
