Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 22:21


22:19 Both men, &c. - In all the life of Saul, there is no wickedness to be compared to this. He appears now to be wholly under the power of that evil spirit which had long tormented him. And this destruction could not but go to the heart of every pious Israelite, and make them wish a thousand times, they had been content with the government of Samuel.

22:20 Abiathar - Who by his father's death was now high - priest.
