Preface - David consulteth with Jonathan how to provide for his safety. The friendly league between them confirmed by oath. They agree upon a token. David absenting himself from the king's table is excused by Jonathan; Saul being enraged seeketh to kill Jonathan. Jonathan informeth David of his danger by the token agreed on. The two friends take a loving leave of each other.
1 Samuel 20
Preface - Paul declareth that he did not use human learning and eloquence in preaching the gospel to his converts, that their faith, being built on the testimony of the spirit, and miracles, might be solely ascribed to God. The gospel doth contain God's wise, but secret, counsel for bringing me to glory; which no natural abilities could discover, but the spirit of God only, by which it was revealed to the apostles. Upon this account both the doctrine and its teachers are held in disesteem by the mere natural man, who is not duly qualified to judge of and discern them.

Sin confessed and cleaned
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1 v 9
I am persuaded that I ought to confess my sins more. I think I ought to confess sin the moment I see it to be sin; whether I am in company, or in study, or even preaching, the soul ought to cast a glance of abhorrence at the sin. If I go on with the duty, leaving the sin unconfessed, I go on with a burdened conscience, and add sin to sin. I think I ought at certain times of the day - my best times - say, after breakfast and after tea - to confess solemnly the sins of the previous hours, and to seek their complete remission.
