Dear and delightful you were to me (2 Sam 1:26): In this lament song on Saul and Jonathan (2 Sam 1:19-27), the author succeeded through sound- and wordplay to pay tribute and honour to both heroes. He effectuates this by skillful artistic arrangement of different words and phrases. Ultimately, the focus is placed on David's beloved friend, Jonathan.
