Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 19:7


19:6 As the Lord, &c. - And without all doubt, he intended what he said, feeling a real change in himself for the present. God, says Mr. Henry, inclined the heart of Saul to hearken to the voice of Jonathan.

19:8 And David, &c. - So David continues his good service, tho' it was ill requited. They who are ill paid for doing good, yet must not be weary of well doing, remembering how bountiful a benefactor God is, even to the evil and unthankful.

19:9 The evil spirit - David's successes against the Philistines revived his envy, and the devil watched the opportunity, as he had done before.
