  1. Joshua 14:2 Lit by the hand of

41 Therefore, Saul said to the Lord, the God of Israel, “(A)Give a perfect lot.” And Jonathan and Saul were taken, but the people escaped. 42 Saul said, “Cast lots between me and Jonathan my son.” And Jonathan was taken.

43 Then Saul said to Jonathan, “(B)Tell me what you have done.” So Jonathan told him and said, “(C)I indeed tasted a little honey with the end of the staff that was in my hand. Here I am, I must die!” 44 Saul said, “(D)May God do [a]this to me and more also, for (E)you shall surely die, Jonathan.” 45 But the people said to Saul, “Must Jonathan die, who has [b]brought about this great deliverance in Israel? Far from it! As the Lord lives, (F)not one hair of his head shall fall to the ground, for (G)he has worked with God this day.” So the people [c]rescued Jonathan and he did not die. 46 Then Saul went up from [d]pursuing the Philistines, and the Philistines went to their own place.

47 Now when Saul had taken the kingdom over Israel, he fought against all his enemies on every side, against Moab, (H)the sons of Ammon, Edom, (I)the kings of Zobah, and (J)the Philistines; and wherever he turned, he [e]inflicted punishment. 48 He acted valiantly and [f](K)defeated the Amalekites, and delivered Israel from the hands of [g]those who plundered them.

49 Now (L)the sons of Saul were Jonathan and Ishvi and Malchi-shua; and the names of his two daughters were these: the name of the firstborn (M)Merab and the name of the younger (N)Michal. 50 The name of Saul’s wife was Ahinoam the daughter of Ahimaaz. And (O)the name of the captain of his army was Abner the son of Ner, Saul’s uncle. 51 (P)Kish was the father of Saul, and Ner the father of Abner was the son of Abiel.

52 Now the war against the Philistines was severe all the days of Saul; and when Saul saw any mighty man or any valiant man, he [h](Q)attached him to [i]his staff.
