In the morning Jonathan went out into the field to the appointment with David, and with him a little lad.
And he said to his lad, "Run and find the arrows which I shoot." As the lad ran, he shot an arrow beyond him.
And when the lad came to the place of the arrow which Jonathan had shot, Jonathan called after the lad and said, "Is not the arrow beyond you?"
And Jonathan called after the lad, "Hurry, make haste, stay not." So Jonathan's lad gathered up the arrows, and came to his master.
But the lad knew nothing; only Jonathan and David knew the matter.
And Jonathan gave his weapons to his lad, and said to him, "Go and carry them to the city."
And as soon as the lad had gone, David rose from beside the stone heap and fell on his face to the ground, and bowed three times; and they kissed one another, and wept with one another, until David recovered himself.
Then Jonathan said to David, "Go in peace, forasmuch as we have sworn both of us in the name of the LORD, saying, 'The LORD shall be between me and you, and between my descendants and your descendants, for ever.'" And he rose and departed; and Jonathan went into the city.
