41So Saul said to the Lord, the God of Israel, ˻“Why have you not answered your servant today? If the fault is in me or my son Jonathan, respond with Urim, but if the fault is with the men of Israel,˼ respond with Thummim.”
Then Jonathan and Saul were chosen, and the people were not chosen.
42Saul said, “Cast lots between me and Jonathan my son. ˻The person the Lord identifies by lot shall be put to death.”
But the people said to Saul, “Absolutely not.” But Saul overruled the people, so they cast lots between him and Jonathan his son,˼ and Jonathan was selected by lot.
