Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 14:42

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 14:42


14:42 Jonathan - God so ordered the lot; not that he approved Saul's execration, ver.#24|, or his oath that the transgressor should die, ver.#39|, nor that he would expose Jonathan to death; but that Saul's folly might be chastised, when he saw what danger it had brought upon his eldest and excellent son; and that Jonathan's innocency might be cleared.
