Poole's Outline of 1 Samuel 20: Jonathan's Sounding of Saul



David complaineth to Jonathan of Saul: he comforteth him; can hardly believe what David saith of his father; promiseth to give him notice how his absence was taken: they renew a covenant of friendship, and swear to each other, 1-17. Their sign, 18-23. Saul asketh for David at the feast of the new moon, 24-27. Jonathan excuseth David: Saul incensed here at, revileth Jonathan, and seeketh to kill him, 28-34. Jonathan advertiseth David, 35-40. They part with tears, 40, 41.

I. David complains to Jonathan of his present distress, and engages him to be his friend, verses 1-8. II. Jonathan faithfully promises to get and give him intelligence how his father stood affecte…
