1st Samuel 20 Notes

Posted by lehunt on July 25, 2014

Chapter 20

 

v. 2:  The last news that Jonathan apparently had was Saul’s oath in the LORD’s name not to kill David.  See 19:6.

 

v. 5:  This must be a specific field.  It is probably the same one in which David hides in chapter 19:1-7. See also 20:19.

 

v. 35:  The OKJ says, “at the appointed time,” where the NIV reads, “for his meeting.”  I think the NIV is correct because the appointed time was to be “toward the evening” (v. 19), but this is morning.  I think what has happened is that, after the events of the previous night, Jonathan does not want to wait until the evening and so goes out early.  Perhaps David had been living in the field these two days.
