Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 9:17

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 9:17


9:15 His ear - That is, secretly, perhaps by a still small voice.

9:16 Philistines - For though they were now most pressed with the Ammonites, yet they looked upon these as a land - flood, soon up, and soon down again: but the Philistines, their constant and nearest enemies, they most dreaded. And from these did Saul in some measure save them, and would have saved them much more, if his and the people's sins had not hindered.
