Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 14:45

_ _ the people rescued Jonathan, that he died not — When Saul became aware of Jonathan’s transgression in regard to the honey, albeit it was done in ignorance and involved no guilt, he was, like Jephthah [Judges 11:31, Judges 11:35], about to put his son to death, in conformity with his vow [1 Samuel 14:44]. But the more enlightened conscience of the army prevented the tarnishing the glory of the day by the blood of the young hero, to whose faith and valor it was chiefly due.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 14:36-46.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 14:45

With God — In concurrence with God, he hath wrought this salvation. God is so far from being offended with Jonathan, that he hath graciously owned him in the great service of this day.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Samuel 14:45

And the people said unto Saul, (s) Shall Jonathan die, who hath wrought this great salvation in Israel? God forbid: [as] the LORD liveth, there shall not one hair of his head fall to the ground; for he hath wrought with God this day. So the people rescued Jonathan, that he died not.

(s) The people thought it their duty to rescue him, who out of ignorance had broken a rash law, and by whom they had received so great a benefit.
