King Saul was troubled, and called a search for a young man who was good at playing the harp. Therfore came the youngest son of Jesse, [David]. David played the harp, slew Goliath, killed many other Philistines, fell in love with the Prince Jonathan, they made the covenent mentioned above, and David became famous in Sauls kingdom, and Saul became very wroth.
This verse proves that the covenent was not merely 'brotherly' love, but a homesexual relationship..... 1 Samuel 20: 30-31
Then Saul's anger was kindled against Jonathan, and he said unto him, Thou son of the perverse rebellious [woman], do not I know that thou hast chosen the son of Jesse to thine own confusion, and unto the confusion of thy mother's nakedness? 1 Sa 20:31 For as long as the son of Jesse liveth upon the ground, thou shalt not be established, nor thy kingdom. Wherefore now send and fetch him unto me, for he shall surely die. 1 Sa 20:32 And Jonathan answered Saul his father, and said unto him, Wherefore shall he be slain? what hath he done? 1 Sa 20:33 And Saul cast a javelin at him to smite him: whereby Jonathan knew that it was determined of his father to slay David. 1 Sa 20:34 So Jonathan arose from the table in fierce anger, and did eat no meat the second day of the month: for he was grieved for David, because his father had done him shame.
My study Bible defines the word 'confusion' as meaning 'shame' .
Jonathan did not deny the relationship, tried to protect David, and King Saul was wroth enough to kill them both. Later when it was safe to get away, Jonathan met David in a field and they kissed and wept, because for Davids safty, David needed to part from Jonathan. The whole book of 1 Samuel reads like a very good romance novel, and I encourage reading it.
Some people think that if a 'gay' person has sexual relations with the opposite sex, that that 'proves' they are not or no longer 'gay', actually most 'gays' have had relations with both, some long lasting, than what defines 'gay' is the fact that 'gays' prefer their own sex.
I don't feel that gays in any way threaten the institution of marriage, between a man and women, or threaten future population growth. The following verse is what David said when hearing of Jonathan's death.
2 Samuel 1:26
I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.
There you have it. The anointed King David chosen and beloved by God 'preferred' his relationship to Jonathan above his relationship to 'women', he had two wifes at that time, DAVID WAS GAY!!
As for me, I am streight, but not narrow!
If two people have love for each other, love is of God, for God is love!
