The nearest friend reclining on a couch at a feast lay in the bosom of his friend, as John "on Jesus' bosom" (John 13:23); Lazarus in Abraham's bosom, i.e. figuratively for in a high place at the heavenly banquet (Luke 16:23). It implies closest and secret intimacy (2 Samuel 12:8): the Son in the bosom of the Father with whom He is One (John 1:18); the lambs carried in the bosom of the Good Shepherd (Isaiah 40:11).
