Jonathan: [shortly before Saul's last stand at Mount Gilboa] David is not among the enemy, Father. It's not your honor that's at stake. It's the lives of our men.
Saul: I will ride out against the Philistines. If I ride alone, so be it.
Nathan: [rallying the Israelite troops while preparing to offer a sacrifice] Rouse yourselves in anger! Lay nations at our feet! Whet your flashing swords! Make your arrows drunk with blood!
Saul: [cutting in] My Lord, *I* am your sacrifice.
Nathan: This day, you will surely die.
Saul: Then my prayer will be answered at last.
Nathan: The Lord scorns your prayers. He has utterly rejected you.
Saul: And Samuel, too. And Abraham and Isaac and Jacob! Even David will be forsaken at the end, for in death, we are all cut off from God's care. What purpose, then, in serving Him? He wrestles with man for the nighttime of his life, but at daybreak, He is gone.
[calling out]
Saul: Who marches with the king and his sons? Movie: King David [1985] Movie: King David [1985] quotes
