\\INTRODUCTION TO FIRST SAMUEL 20\\

David fleeing from Naioth came to Jonathan, and acquainted him with his
circumstances, and entreated his favour, \\#1Sa 20:1-8\\; which Jonathan
promised, and renewed the covenant with him, \\#1Sa 20:9-17\\; a scheme was
formed between them, by which David might know whether Saul was
reconciled to him, and he might come to court, \\#1Sa 20:18-23\\; which
being tried, Jonathan found it was not safe for him to appear,
\\#1Sa 20:24-34\\; of which he gave notice by the signals agreed on,
\\#1Sa 20:35-40\\; and they took their leave of one another with strong
expressions of affection and attachment to each other, \\#1Sa 20:41,42\\.
