1 Samuel 20:31
“For as long as the sonne of Iesse liueth vpon the ground, thou shalt not be stablished, nor thy kingdome: wherefore now send and fetch him vnto mee, for he shall surely die.”
King James Version (KJV)
1 Samuel 20:31
28. And Ionathan answered Saul, Dauid earnestly asked leaue of me, to goe to Bethlehem. 29. And he said, Let me goe, I pray thee, for our familie hath a sacrifice in the citie, and my brother, hee hath commanded mee to be there: and now if I haue found fauour in thine eyes, let me get away, I pray thee, and see my brethren: Therefore he commeth not vnto the kings table. 30. Then Sauls anger was kindled against Ionathan, and hee said vnto him, Thou sonne of the peruerse rebellious woman, doe not I know that thou hast chosen the sonne of Iesse to thine owne confusion, and vnto the confusion of thy mothers nakednesse? 31. For as long as the sonne of Iesse liueth vpon the ground, thou shalt not be stablished, nor thy kingdome: wherefore now send and fetch him vnto mee, for he shall surely die. 32. And Ionathan answered Saul his father, and said vnto him, Wherefore shall hee be slaine? what hath hee done? 33. And Saul cast a iauelin at him to smite him, whereby Ionathan knewe that it was determined of his father to slay Dauid. 34. So Ionathan arose from the table in fierce anger, and did eate no meat the second day of the moneth: for hee was grieued for Dauid, because his father had done him shame.
