SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:14 Samuel entonces dijo: Â¿Pues qué balido de ovejas y bramido de bueyes es éste que yo oigo con mis oídos?
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 14. And Samuel said, what meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears , etc.] For the orders were to destroy all living creatures belonging to the Amalekites, ( 1 Samuel 15:3) if therefore Saul had performed the commandment of the Lord, as he said he had, from whence were these sheep Samuel heard bleating? and the lowing of the oxen which I hear ? where do they come from? these questions he put to convict him of the falsehood he had delivered; the bleating and lowing of these creatures proved him a liar, and were witnesses of his breach of the divine command; and one would think every bleating and lowing of these must alarm his conscience, unless dreadfully stupefied.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-23 - Repentance in God is not a change of mind, as it is in us, but a chang of method. The change was in Saul; "He is turned back from followin me." Hereby he made God his enemy. Samuel spent a whole night in pleading for Saul. The rejection of sinners is the grief of believers God delights not in their death, nor should we. Saul boasts to Samue of his obedience. Thus sinners think, by justifying themselves, to escape being judged of the Lord. The noise the cattle made, like the rust of the silver, Jas 5:3, witnessed against him. Many boast of obedience to the command of God; but what means then their indulgenc of the flesh, their love of the world, their angry and unkind spirit and their neglect of holy duties, which witness against them? See of what evil covetousness is the root; and see what is the sinfulness of sin, and notice that in it which above any thing else makes it evil in the sight of the Lord; it is disobedience: "Thou didst not obey the voice of the Lord." Carnal, deceitful hearts, like Saul, think to excuse themselves from God's commandments by what pleases themselves It is hard to convince the children of disobedience. But humble sincere, and conscientious obedience to the will of God, is mor pleasing and acceptable to him than all burnt-offering and sacrifices God is more glorified and self more denied, by obedience than by sacrifice. It is much easier to bring a bullock or lamb to be burne upon the altar, than to bring every high thought into obedience to God and to make our will subject to his will. Those are unfit and unworth to rule over men, who are not willing that God should rule over them.
