Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 1:27

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 1:27


1:25 A bullock - The three bullocks mentioned ver.#24|, the singular number being put for the plural, which is frequent.

1:26 Soul liveth - As surely as thou livest. Which asseveration seems necessary, because this was some years after it.

1:28 Lent him - But not with a purpose to require him again. Whatever we give to God, may upon this account be said to be lent to him, that tho' we may not recall it, yet he will certainly repay it, to our unspeakable advantage. He worshipped - Not Eli, but young Samuel, who is spoken of in this and the foregoing verse, and who was capable of worshipping God in some sort, at least with external adoration.
