SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:1 Â¶ Y dijo el SEÑOR a Samuel: Â¿Hasta cuándo has tú de llorar a Saúl, habiéndolo yo desechado para que no reine sobre Israel? Llena tu cuerno de aceite, y ven, te enviaré a Isaí de Belén; porque de sus hijos me he provisto de rey.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 16:1 Verse 1. Fill thine horn with oil] Horns appear to have been the ancient drinking vessels of all nations; and we may suppose that most persons who had to travel much, always carried one with them, for the purpose of taking up water from the fountains to quench their thirst. Such a horn had Samuel; and on this occasion he was commanded to fill it with oil, for the purpose of consecrating a king over Israel from among the sons of Jesse.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And the Lord said unto Samuel , etc.] In a vision or dream, or by an articulate voice: how long wilt thou mourn for Saul? he does not blame him for mourning, but for mourning so long; but how long that was cannot be said; and though his affection for him might cause him to indulge to it, yet it was in vain, seeing the sentence was irreversible: seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel ? that is, his posterity; for he himself reigned as long as he lived, though in a very inglorious manner: fill thine horn with oil ; with common oil; for that this was the holy anointing oil kept in the tabernacle, as the Jewish writers generally suppose, with which they say David and Solomon, and the kings of Judah, were anointed, there is no reason to believe; since the tabernacle, where this oil was, was at a distance from Samuel, and which seems to have been only for the anointing of the priests. This was not a phial he was bid to take, as when he anointed Saul; but an horn, denoting the abundance of gifts bestowed on David, and the firmness and duration of his kingdom: and go, and I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite ; the son of Obed, whom Boaz begat of Ruth the Moabitess, ( Ruth 4:21,22) for I have provided me a king among his sons ; but which he says not; this was reserved for an later discovery; however God had in his own mind picked him, whom he would hereafter make known; this was a king for himself, raised up to fulfil his will; Saul was chosen by him, but then it was at the request of the people, and so he was rather their king than his; but this was not at their desire, nor with their knowledge, but of his own good will and pleasure; the one was given in wrath, and the other in love; the one was to the rejection of God as King, the other to the rejection of Saul by the will of God.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-5 - It appears that Saul was grown very wicked. Of what would he not be guilty, who durst think to kill Samuel? The elders of Bethlehe trembled at Samuel's coming. It becomes us to stand in awe of God' messengers, and to tremble at his word. His answer was, I com peaceably, for I come to sacrifice. When our Lord Jesus came into the world, though men had reason to fear that his errand was to condemn the world, yet he gave full assurance that he came peaceably, for he cam to sacrifice, and he brought his offering with him; A body hast tho prepared me. Let us sanctify ourselves, and depend upon His sacrifice.
