Then Saul hurled his spear at him to strike him down; so Jonathan knew that his father had decided to put David to death.
Saul hurled the spear for he thought, “I will pin David to the wall.” But David escaped from his presence twice.
If he says, ‘It is good,’ your servant will be safe; but if he is very angry, know that he has decided on evil.
Saul tried to pin David to the wall with the spear, but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence, so that he stuck the spear into the wall. And David fled and escaped that night.
