King Saul—the Caretaker

1 Samuel 14:2 – Meanwhile, Saul and his 600 men were camped on the outskirts of Gibeah, around the pomegranate tree at Migron.

1 Samuel 14:1 – One day Jonathan said to his armor bearer, "Come on, let's go over to where the Philistines have their outpost." But Jonathan did not tell his father what he was doing.


Armor Bearer—Risk-Taker’s Encourager

1 Samuel 14:6-7 – "Let's go across to the outpost of those pagans," Jonathan said to his armor bearer. "Perhaps the Lord will help us, for nothing can hinder the Lord. He can win a battle whether He has many warriors or only a few!" 7 "Do what you think is best," the armor bearer replied. "I'm with you completely, whatever you decide."


8 "All right then, "Jonathan told him. "We will cross over and let them see us.”


8 "All right then, "Jonathantold him. "We will cross over and let them see us.”


Jonathan’s Crazy Plan

9 If they say to us, 'Stay where you are or we'll kill you,' then we will stop and not go up to them. 10 But if they say, 'Come on up and fight,' then we will go up. That will be the Lord's sign that he will help us defeat them."


Leviticus 26:7-8 – In fact, you will chase down your enemies and slaughter them with your swords. 8 Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand! All your enemies will fall beneath your sword.


Joshua 23:10 – Each one of you will put to flight a thousand of the enemy, for the Lord your God fights for you, just as He has promised.


1 Samuel 14:11-12 – When the Philistines saw them coming, they shouted, "Look! The Hebrews are crawling out of their holes!" 12 Then the men from the outpost shouted to Jonathan, "Come on up here, and we'll teach you a lesson!” "Come on, climb right behind me," Jonathan said to his armor bearer, "for the Lord will help us defeat them!"
