    SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:18

    Y entre ambos hicieron alianza delante del SEÑOR; y David se quedó en el bosque, y Jonatán se volvió a su casa.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. And they two made a
    covenant before the Lord , etc.] Renewed the covenant they had before made in the name and fear of God, and before him as a witness of it. Kimchi and Abarbinel interpret this phrase, before the Lord , of the covenant being made before Abiathar, with the Urim and Thummim in his hand; and so Jerom f466 , before Gad the prophet, and Abiathar who wore the ephod: and David abode in the wood ; being a proper place for him for secrecy and safety: and Jonathan went to his house ; in Gibeah; and these two dear and cordial friends never saw one another more, as is highly probable.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-18 -
    David made no attempt against Saul; he kept God's way, waited God' time, and was content to secure himself in woods and wildernesses. Le it make us think the worse of this world, which often gives such ba treatment to its best men: let it make us long for that kingdom wher goodness shall for ever be in glory, and holiness in honour. We fin Jonathan comforting David. As a pious friend, he directed him to God the Foundation of his comfort. As a self-denying friend, he take pleasure in the prospect of David's advancement to the throne. As constant friend, he renewed his friendship with him. Our covenant with God should be often renewed, and therein our communion with him kep up. If the converse of one friend, at one meeting, gives comfort an strengthens our hearts, what may not be expected from the continua supports and powerful love of the Saviour of sinners, the covenante Friend of believers!
