    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:12

    Envió, pues, por él, y lo introdujo; el cual era rojo, (de buen color) , de hermoso parecer y de bello aspecto. Entonces el SEÑOR dijo: Levántate y úngelo, que éste es.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 16:12

    Verse 12. He was ruddy] I believe the word here means red- haired, he had golden
    locks. Hair of this kind is ever associated with a delicate skin and florid complexion.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. And he sent and brought him in , etc.] Sent messengers into the
    field and to the flock for him, and being come home Jesse introduced him into the room where Samuel was: now he was ruddy ; which some understand not of the ruddiness of his complexion, or of his cheeks, but of the redness of his hair; the former seems best: and withal of a beautiful countenance ; of comely features: or “beautiful eyes” f323 ; bright, clear, and sparkling; eyes that are black or blue are reckoned beautiful: and goodly to look to ; of a pleasant countenance, delightful to behold; he carried sweetness as well as majesty in his face; in this he was a type of Christ, ( Song of Solomon 5:10,16). A beautiful aspect, as well as shape and height, recommended persons for government, as with the Ethiopians, as Aristotle relates; so Agamemnon is represented by Priamus for his personable appearance, as like a king, and fit to be one: and the Lord said, arise, anoint him, for this is he ; that he had spoken to him of, and who it was his pleasure should be anointed king; and therefore, by a secret strong impulse upon his mind, was put upon doing it immediately, without any hesitation or delay.

    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.
