“Of this man's seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:”
King James Version (KJV)
13:21 He gave them Saul forty years - Including the time wherein Samuel judged Israel.
13:22 Having removed him - Hence they might understand that the dispensations of God admit of various changes. I have found David, a man after my own heart - This expression is to be taken in a limited sense. David was such at that time, but not at all times. And he was so, in that respect, as he performed all God's will, in the particulars there mentioned: But he was not a man after God's own heart, in other respects, wherein he performed his own will. In the matter of Uriah, for instance, he was as far from being a man after God's own heart as Saul himself was. It is therefore a very gross, as well as dangerous mistake, to suppose this is the character of David in every part of his behaviour. We must beware of this, unless we would recommend adultery and murder as things after God's own heart. #1Sam 16:12|,13.
13:24 John having first preached - He mentions this, as a thing already known to them. And so doubtless it was. For it gave so loud an alarm to the whole Jewish nation, as could not but be heard of in foreign countries, at least as remote as Pisidia.
13:25 His course - His work was quickly finished, and might therefore well be termed a course or race. #Luke 3:16|.
