Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 6:14


6:14 They - Not the lords of the Philistines, but the Beth - shemites, the priest that dwelt there. Offered the kine - There may seem to he a double error in this act. First, that they offered females for a burnt - offering, contrary to #Levit 1:3|. Secondly, that they did it in a forbidden place, #Deut 12:5|,6. But this case being extraordinary, may in some sort excuse it, if they did not proceed by ordinary rules.
