1 Samuel 14:43-45 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
43 Saul said to Jonathan, “Tell me what you have done.”
Jonathan told Saul, “I only tasted a little honey from the end of my stick. Should I die for doing that?”
44 Saul said, “I made an oath and asked God to punish me if I didn’t keep it. Jonathan, you must die.”
45 But the soldiers said to Saul, “Jonathan led Israel to a great victory today. Must Jonathan die? Never! As surely as the Lord lives, not one hair of Jonathan’s head will fall to the ground! God helped Jonathan fight against the Philistines today.” So the people saved Jonathan from death.
