SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:19 Â¿Por qué, pues, no has oído la voz del SEÑOR? Antes vuelto al despojo, has hecho lo malo en los ojos del SEÑOR.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the Lord , etc.] Who had made him king, and sent him on this errand, and gave him such plain directions, and such strong orders to make an entire consumption of Amalek: but didst fly upon the spoil ; like a bird of prey, such as an eagle or vulture, not to devote it to the Lord, by an entire destruction of it, but to seize it for his own use, as being greedily desirous and covetous of it: and didst evil in the sight of the Lord ? by disobeying his commands, from whose sight nothing can be hid.
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.
