“And Jonathan answered Saul, David earnestly asked leave of me to go to Bethlehem:”
King James Version (KJV)
20:26 Something - Some accident which has rendered him unclean, and so unfit to partake of this feast, which consisted in part of the remainders of the peace - offerings, according to the law, #Levit 7:20|. Unfit also to come into any company, much more, into the king's company, lest he should pollute them also.
20:27 Son of Jesse - So he calls him in scorn, to note the meanness of his original; and as not deigning to call him by his proper name. To day - For the uncleanness which came by some chance, usually lasted but for one day.
20:30 Thy confusion - Men will conclude that thou hast no royal blood in thy veins, that canst so tamely give up thy crown to so contemptible a person.
