Taxt of the Lation, | Sam. xi—Memory
Vara**, 12, 13—Qoldan T*xt, Prov.
xvi, 32— Commentary Praparad by
Rav. D. M. Staarna.
After tbe Lord bad brougbt to Samvel
tbo mail whom He bad cbosen as king
for Israel and Samuel had anointed
htm he returned to his home, having
met on his way all whom Samuel said
he would meet, for all came to pass
Just as Samuel said. Tbe Spirit of the
Lord came upon him, and he became
a changed man (chapter x, 6-10). All
this was a prjvate matter between the
Lord and Sauiuel and Saul, for when
Saul reached home he only told that
Samuel hud assured him that tbe asses
had been found, but be suld nothing of
the kingdom. Then Saui culled the
people to Mizpeh. reminded them of
tbe Lord's deliverance from Egypt and
all etfemies and of their rejection of
God In demanding a king and then
proceeded to have them elect a king
with God's permission. It was. nu
doubt, done by lot, as the land was di
vided, for "the lot Is cast Into the lap,
but the whole disposing thereof Is of
the Lord" (Nun), xxvl. .18. 06; Prov.
xvi, 33). First tbe tribe was found
und then the family and then the man
(chapter x. 20, 21; compare Josh. vii.
16-18), and thus they were guided lo
tbe man whom He had already chosen
and unointed. Although elected. be
could not for a time be found, so they
Inquired of the Lo.'d. and He told them
where to tlnd him. Whether it he a
person or a thing that cannot be found,
He that is perfect In knowledge knows
where to find tbe lost (Job xxxvi, 4i
When the people looked upon tbs
man whom God bad chosen they could
not refrain from shouting. "God sav»
tbe king!" or. as in the margin. "Let
tbe king live!" (x. 23-25.) The band of
men whose hearts God had touched
were a coml'ort to him. so that he was
able to seem as a deaf man to his ene
mies (x. 20. 27). Our lesson chapter
shows how Saul by the Spirit of tbe
Lord began to deliver Israel and to ob
tain tbe confidence of the people. 1
suppose there is scarcely a day in tb«
life of any child of God when there in
not an occasion to say. "Now, the ser
pent'' (Gen. 111, 1). for he Is ever going
about to make trouble. Nahash, whoso
name signifies "serpent," was moved
by the devil, whose he was and whom
he served, to seek to bring reproacli
upon Israel (verses 1-3). Saul heard ol
tbe distress of Jabesh Gileud aud in «
very striking way summoned the peo
pie to gather unto him and Samuel
and 330.000 gathered, and word wai
sent to the distressed that they would
have help by the morrow. That night
or in the early morrting (verse 111
Saul came suddenly upon the Ammon
ites and so completely routed theiu
that two of them were not left togeth
er (verses 4-11).
Tbe morning deliverance* of tbe Bi
ble are full of interest and are ail sng
gestlve of the morning that is coining
when the Lord shall Anally and for
ever deliver Israel (Vs. xivl. 5, mar
gin). Compare Ps. xlix. 14, and sei
Ex. xiv, 24. 27. Think also of Dan. vl,
19-23. and of the deliverance that cam«
to the disciples In the morning watch
(Mark vi. 48). But. while believers mas i
well rejoice in the glorious morning
that is coming and in Him who is to
us the Morning Star (Tl Sam. sxiil, 5;
Rev. xxii. 16). it Is also written that
there will be no morning for such a*
do not believe God (Isa. viii. 20; mar
gin and revised version). When tbe
people saw the great deiiveranc*
wrought by Saul they asked to hav«
Baul's enemies put to death, but Saul
would not listen to It. saying. "Ther«
shall not a man be put to death thii
day, for today the Lord hath wrought
salvation In Israel" (verses 12, 13). II
was the same power that wrought foi
Israel at the Red sea (Ex. xlv, 13, 30|
and on so many occasions in all tbeii
history, and their greatest dellveranc*
is yet to come (Zech. xlv, 3, 9). Samuel
then gathered the people to Gllgal, and
there they made Saul king before the
Lord, offered sacrifices, aud all Israel
rejoiced greatly (verses 14. 15). Thus
far all,seemed to be going well, but
when man has his way there is soon
failure, for "verily, every man at hli
best state (apart from God) is alto
getber vanity" (Ps. xxxix, 5).
Chapter xii tells how Samuel rehears
ed the history of the nation from tbeii
coming out of Egypt, the Lord's deal
ings with them under Moses and
Aaron and how many a time He de
llvered tbem in the dajrs of the Judges
He also asked them to testify as t«
whether during ail tbe time that h«
had Judged them he bad ever taken
anything from them or defrauded anj
one or taken a bribe to blind bis eyes
but they called God to witness thai
they could find no fault in him in anj
of these matters (xii. 1-5). To show
them that he x was right before th«
Lord as well as In their eyes and that
they bad done wrong in asking tor s
king when the Lord Himself was tbeii
King be asked the Lord to send thun
der and rain that day. and He did so.
The people seemed to see their sin and
asked Samuel to pray for them (xll
tt-19). Samuel assured them that
though they hnd done this great wrong
yet if they would truly turn to the Lord
and fear Him and serve Him in trutfc
with all their heart lie would for His
great name's sake forgive them and
Dot forsake them and he (Samuel)
would not cease to pray for them.
