Saul and Jonathan’s select band. Jonathan smiteth the garrison of the Philistines at Gibeah: the people are called together at Gilgal, 1-4.

Saul offereth before Samuel cometh to him; he reproves him for it; foretelleth him that his kingdom should not last long, 8-14. Three companies of the Philistines invade the land; they had no smith to make them swords, etc.; nor had any of the Israelites, save Saul and Jonathan, sword or spear, 15-23.
