And Jonathan said to David, Come, and we shall go out to the field; and both of them went out to the field.
And Jonathan said to David, Jehovah the God of Israel be witness when I search my father about this time tomorrow, or the third day, and behold, there is good toward
David and I do not send to you and do not
reveal it in your ear,
so may Jehovah do to Jonathan and do much more than this. If it should seem good to my father to do evil to you, then I will reveal it in your ear and send you away. And you
shall go in peace; and may Jehovah be with
you, as He was with my father.
And not only while I live, even you shall do with me the kindness of Jehovah, that I not die,
but you shall not cut off your kindness from my house forever, not even when Jehovah cuts off the enemies of David, each one from off the face of the earth.
And Jonathan covenanted with the house of David, that Jehovah should seek it from the hand of David's enemies.
And Jonathan again made David swear, because he loved him; for he loved him as he loved his own soul.
