Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

the soul of Jonathan The modesty, piety, and courage of David were so congenial to the character of the amiable Jonathan, they attracted his most cordial esteem and affection; so that the most intimate friend- ship subsisted between them from that time, and they loved each other with pure hearts fervently. Their friendship could not be affected by the common vicissitudes of life; and it exemplifies by fact what the ancients have written on the subject; (), `Friendship is an entire sameness, and one soul: a friend is another self.'
