The Lost Brother

Y'honatan, his brother, exited from before the Sanhedrin with the rest of the generals.

In low spirits, he met his brother Natanel in the corridor, and he said, "What do you say, my brother, about the end of our brother?"

"His end was destined from his beginning," answered Natanel in tears.

"But what is our guilt that we saw with our own eyes the sorrows of our brother, yet didn't raise our hands to save him?" asked Y'honatan. "God will surely chastise us that we didn't continue to reproach him on his ways."
