1 Samuel 14:44-46 Expanded Bible (EXB)
44 Saul said, “Jonathan, if you don’t die, may God ·punish me terribly [do the same to me, and even more].”
45 But the ·soldiers [people] said to Saul, “Must Jonathan die? Never! He is responsible for ·saving [rescuing; delivering; L this great victory in] Israel today! As surely as the Lord lives, not even a hair of his head will fall to the ground! ·Today Jonathan fought against the Philistines with God’s help […for he has worked with God today]!” So the ·army [people] ·saved [rescued; redeemed] Jonathan, and he did not die.
46 Then Saul stopped chasing the Philistines, and they [C the Philistines] went back to their own ·land [territory; L place].
