Text / translation

David et Jonathan (David and Jonathan)

Anima Jonathan conligata est, animae David
et dilexit eum Jonathan
quasi animam suam.

Inierunt autem Jonathan et David foedus
enim eum quasi
animam suam.

(et dilexit Jonathan eum et dilexit eum David conligata animae suae
nunc et sempiterna)

– 1 Samuel 18 (paraphrase)

 

Translation

David and Jonathan

The soul of Jonathan was bound with the soul of David
and Jonathan loved him
as his own soul

Moreover, Jonathan
and David made a covenant because he loved him
as his own soul.
(and Jonathan loved him and David loved him bound are their souls
now and evermore)
