SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:11 Entonces dijo Samuel a Isaí: Â¿Se han acabado los jóvenes? Y él respondió: Aún queda el menor, que apacienta las ovejas. Y dijo Samuel a Isaí: Envía por él, porque no nos sentaremos a la mesa hasta que él venga aquí.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And Samuel said unto Jesse, are here all thy children ? etc.] For neither of these being the person God would have anointed king, and yet it was one of Jesse’s sons that was to be anointed, he concluded he must have more, at least one more, and therefore puts this question to him: and he said, there remaineth yet the youngest ; or, “the little one” f321 ; not of a little diminutive stature, for he was a mighty man, a man of strength, courage, and valour, ( 1 Samuel 16:18) or of a puerile age, for the Jews say he was now twenty nine years of age; but that is not likely, he hardly exceeded more than twenty, or was so much; thereabout he might be; but he is so called because he was the youngest son, as we render it: and, behold, he keepeth the sheep : and from following them, he was taken and anointed king; (see Psalm 78:70,71). Some of the greatest of men have been taken from rustic employment, as Moses, Gideon, Saul, and others: and Samuel said unto Jesse, send and fetch him ; out of the field by a messenger: for we will not sit down till he come hither ; that is, at table, to eat of that part of the peace offerings which belonged to the offerer Samuel, and which he had invited Jesse and his sons to partake of.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 6-13 - It was strange that Samuel, who had been so disappointed in Saul, whose countenance and stature recommended him, should judge of another man by that rule. We can tell how men look, but God can tell what they are. He judges of men by the heart. We often form a mistaken judgment of characters; but the Lord values only the faith, fear, and love, whic are planted in the heart, beyond human discernment. And God does no favour our children according to our fond partiality, but often mos honours and blesses those who have been least regarded. David at lengt was pitched upon. He was the youngest of the sons of Jesse; his nam signifies Beloved; he was a type of God's beloved Son. It should seem David was least set by of all the sons of Jesse. But the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. His anointing was not a empty ceremony, a Divine power went with that instituted sign; he foun himself advanced in wisdom and courage, with all the qualifications of a prince, though not advanced in his outward circumstances. This woul satisfy him that his election was of God. The best evidence of ou being predestinated to the kingdom of glory, is, our being sealed with the Spirit of promise, and experience of a work of grace in our hearts.
