Jonathan Intercedes for David

19 Saul told his son Jonathan and all his officials[a] to kill David, but Saul’s son Jonathan was very fond of[b] David. So Jonathan told David, “My father Saul is trying to kill you. In the morning be careful and stay hidden in a secret place. I’ll go out and stand by my father in the field where you are. I’ll speak to my father about you. If I find out what he intends to do,[c] I’ll tell you.”
