SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:21 Mas el pueblo tomó del despojo ovejas y vacas, las primicias del anatema, para sacrificarlas al SEÑOR tu Dios en Gilgal.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 15:21 Verse 21. To sacrifice unto the Lord] Thus he endeavours to excuse the people. They did not take the spoil in order to enrich themselves by it, but to sacrifice unto the Lord; and did not this motive justify their conduct?
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 21. But the people took the spoil, the sheep and oxen , etc.] Still he continues to lay the blame on the people, when he, as king, ought to have restrained them: the chief of the things, which should have been utterly destroyed ; this betrays him, and is an evidence against him; he could not plead ignorance, he knew and he owns, that according to the command of God they were all devoted to destruction; and therefore he ought not to have suffered the people to have spared any on whatsoever pretence, but to have seen all destroyed; but he was as deeply in it as they, and therefore palliates the thing, and endeavours to excuse them by observing, that their end was good, the service and glory of God, which perhaps were never thought of till now: namely, to sacrifice unto the Lord thy God in Gilgal ; as peace offerings, by way of thanksgiving for the victory obtained, ( 1 Samuel 15:15).
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.
