Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 2:8

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 2:8


2:8 From the dunghill - From the most sordid place, and mean estate. Inherit - Not only possess it themselves, but transmit it to their posterity. Throne - That is, a glorious throne or kingdom. Pillars - The foundations of the earth, which God created, and upholds, and wherewith he sustains the earth, and all its inhabitants, as a house is supported with pillars; and therefore it is not strange if he disposeth of persons and things therein as he pleaseth.

    For the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S, and he hath set the world upon them.

    May I ask - a simple question?

    "HOW CAN A SPINNING BALL EARTH BE SET UPON PILLARS??"

    Let God be true and every man a liar (Rom 3:4)
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Samuel 2:8
    Peter, clearly the word 'pillars' in 1 Sam 2:8 should be understood as 'foundations', just as a house that is supported on pillars firmly attached to its foundations. It can't be understood as literal pillars - it wouldn't make any sense. Therefore, the foundations are not literal but speak about all that God had decreed & purposed for mankind (see previous verses).

    Isaiah 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the CIRCLE circle of the EARTH earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

    It is he that sitteth upon the CIRCLE circle of the EARTH earth,...SO IS THE EARTH A PANCAKE?

    So believe in Jesus and the flat earth and thou shalt be saved? really?

    How does believing in a flat earth edify the Lord or change anything?

    is the moon and the sun flat also?
