Letter "J" » Jonathan
«And Adonijah and all the guests that were with him heard it as they had made an end of eating. And when Joab heard the sound of the trumpet, he said, Wherefore is this noise of the city being in an uproar? / And while he yet spake, behold, Jonathan the son of Abiathar the priest came; and Adonijah said unto him, Come in; for thou art a valiant man, and bringest good tidings.»
«And Jonathan answered Saul his father, and said unto him, Wherefore shall he be slain? what hath he done? / And Saul cast a javelin at him to smite him: whereby Jonathan knew that it was determined of his father to slay David.»
«And Jonathan answered and said to Adonijah, Verily our lord king David hath made Solomon king.»
«And David went and took the bones of Saul and the bones of Jonathan his son from the men of Jabeshgilead, which had stolen them from the street of Bethshan, where the Philistines had hanged them, when the Philistines had slain Saul in Gilboa: / And he brought up from thence the bones of Saul and the bones of Jonathan his son; and they gathered the bones of them that were hanged.»
«And it came to pass in the morning, that Jonathan went out into the field at the time appointed with David, and a little lad with him.»
«And Jonathan called David, and Jonathan shewed him all those things. And Jonathan brought David to Saul, and he was in his presence, as in times past.»
«And David fled from Naioth in Ramah, and came and said before Jonathan, What have I done? what is mine iniquity? and what is my sin before thy father, that he seeketh my life? / And he said unto him, God forbid; thou shalt not die: behold, my father will do nothing either great or small, but that he will shew it me: and why should my father hide this thing from me? it is not so.»
«Also Jonathan David's uncle was a counsellor, a wise man, and a scribe: and Jehiel the son of Hachmoni was with the king's sons: / And Ahithophel was the king's counsellor: and Hushai the Archite was the king's companion: / And after Ahithophel was Jehoiada the son of Benaiah, and Abiathar: and the general of the king's army was Joab.»
