Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 18:18

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 18:18


18:18 What is my life - How little is my life worth, that by the exposing of that to some hazard, I should purchase a king's daughter! In these expressions David sheweth not only his humility, but also his wisdom, in discovering so deep a sense of his own meanness, that Saul might see how far he was from aspiring at the kingdom.
