Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 20:3 - And David sweareth again, and saith, 'Thy father hath certainly known that I have found grace in thine eyes, and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved; and yet, Jehovah liveth, and thy soul liveth, but -- as a step between me and death.'

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 20:13 - thus doth Jehovah do to Jonathan, and thus doth He add; when the evil concerning thee is good to my father, then I have uncovered thine ear, and sent thee away, and thou hast gone in peace, and Jehovah is with thee, as he was with my father;

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 20:14 - and not only while I am alive dost thou do with me the kindness of Jehovah, and I die not,
