扫罗说,约拿单哪,你定要死。若不然,愿神重重地降罚与我。
Saul said, "May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if you do not die, Jonathan."

百姓对扫罗说,约拿单在以色列人中这样大行拯救,岂可使他死呢?断乎不可。我们指着永生的耶和华起誓,连他的一根头发也不可落地,因为他今日与神一同作事。于是百姓救约拿单免了死亡。
But the men said to Saul, "Should Jonathan die-he who has brought about this great deliverance in Israel? Never! As surely as the Lord lives, not a hair of his head will fall to the ground, for he did this today with God's help." So the men rescued Jonathan, and he was not put to death.
