Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 14:31


14:32 Slew - At evening, when the time prefixed by Saul was expired. With blood - Not having patience to tarry 'till the blood was perfectly gone out of them, as they should have done. So they who made conscience of the king's commandment for fear of the curse, make no scruple of transgressing God's command.

14:33 Transgressed - He sees their fault, but not his own, in giving the occasion of it.
