Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 10:14

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 10:14


10:12 Who is, &c. - Who is the father of all these prophets, among whom Saul now is one? Who is it that instructs and inspires them but God? They have it not from their parents, nor from their education, but by inspiration from God, who, when he pleaseth, can inspire Saul, or any other man with the same skill. And therefore wonder not at this matter, but give God the glory of it. A proverb - Used when any strange, or unexpected thing happened.

10:13 High place - Returning thither with the prophets, to praise God for these wonderful favours, and to beg counsel and help from God in this high business.

10:16 Told not - In obedience to Samuel, who obliged him to secrecy: and from an humble modesty.
