Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 11:8


11:8 Men of Judah - Who are numbered apart to their honour, to shew how readily they, to whom the kingdom was promised, #Gen 49:10|, submitted to their king, though of another tribe; and how willing they were to hazard themselves for their brethren although they might have excused themselves from the necessity of defending their own country from their dangerous neighbours the Philistines.
