Context38Saul said, Draw near here, all you chiefs of the people, and investigate and see how this sin has happened today. 39For as the LORD lives, who delivers Israel, though it is in Jonathan my son, he shall surely die. But not one of all the people answered him. 40Then he said to all Israel, You shall be on one side and I and Jonathan my son will be on the other side. And the people said to Saul, Do what seems good to you. 41Therefore, Saul said to the LORD, the God of Israel, Give a perfect lot. And Jonathan and Saul were taken, but the people escaped. 42Saul said, Cast lots between me and Jonathan my son. And Jonathan was taken.
43Then Saul said to Jonathan, Tell me what you have done. So Jonathan told him and said, I indeed tasted a little honey with the end of the staff that was in my hand. Here I am, I must die! 44Saul said, May God do this to me and more also, for you shall surely die, Jonathan. 45But the people said to Saul, Must Jonathan die, who has brought about this great deliverance in Israel? Far from it! As the LORD lives, not one hair of his head shall fall to the ground, for he has worked with God this day. So the people rescued Jonathan and he did not die. 46Then Saul went up from pursuing the Philistines, and the Philistines went to their own place.
47Now when Saul had taken the kingdom over Israel, he fought against all his enemies on every side, against Moab, the sons of Ammon, Edom, the kings of Zobah, and the Philistines; and wherever he turned, he inflicted punishment. 48He acted valiantly and defeated the Amalekites, and delivered Israel from the hands of those who plundered them.
49Now the sons of Saul were Jonathan and Ishvi and Malchi-shua; and the names of his two daughters were these: the name of the firstborn Merab and the name of the younger Michal. 50The name of Sauls wife was Ahinoam the daughter of Ahimaaz. And the name of the captain of his army was Abner the son of Ner, Sauls uncle. 51Kish was the father of Saul, and Ner the father of Abner was the son of Abiel.
52Now the war against the Philistines was severe all the days of Saul; and when Saul saw any mighty man or any valiant man, he attached him to his staff.

It seemed to him, however, that one could not go on doing these things with sufficient security without the authority of the Apostolic See; and for that reason he determined to set out for Rome, and most of all because the metropolitan see still lacked, and from the beginning had lacked, the use of the pall, which is the fullness of honour.
