Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 10:23

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 10:23


10:22 Enquired - Either by Urim or Thummim, which was the usual way of enquiry. Or, by Samuel, who by his prayer procured an answer. Stuff - Among the carriages or baggage of the people there assembled. This he probably did, from a sense of his own unworthiness.

10:24 None like him - As to the height of his bodily stature, which was in itself, commendable in a king, and some kind of indication of great endowments of mind. God save the king - Heb. let the king live; that is, long and prosperously. Hereby they accept him for their king, and promise subjection to him. None will be losers in the end by their humility and modesty. Honour, like the shadows, follows them that flee from it, but flees from them that pursue it.

10:25 Manner of the kingdom - The laws and rules by which the kingly government was to be managed; agreeable to those mentioned #Deut 17:16|, &c. Before the Lord - Before the ark, where it was kept safe from depravation.
