Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 31:10

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 31:10


31:8 Saul and his three sons - The scripture, as Mr. Henry well observes, makes no mention of the souls of Saul and his sons, what became of them after they were dead: secret things belong not to us.

31:9 Cut off his head - As the Israelites did by Goliath, and fastened it in the temple of Dagon, #1Chron 10:10|. Idols - To give them the glory of this victory. And by this respect shewn to their pretended deities, how do they shame those, who give not the honour of their achievements to the living God?

31:12 Took the body, &c. - This they did, not only out of a concern, for the honour of Israel, and the crown of Israel, but out of gratitude to Saul, for his zeal and forwardness to rescue them from the Ammonites.
