Poole's Outline of 1 Samuel 14: Jonathan's Valor and Victory


Jonathan and his armour-bearer secretly smite the Philistines’ army; they slay one another, 1-15; which being perceived, 16, 17, Saul pursueth the Philistines, the captivated and hidden Israelites joining in the pursuit, 18-23. Saul adjureth the people not to eat any thing till evening. Jonathan eateth honey: the Philistines are smitten, 24-31. The people eat flesh with the blood: Saul restraineth them, and buildeth an altar, 32-35.

Saul’s wars, sons, daughters, wife, etc., 46-52.
