SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:19 Y a Nob, ciudad de los sacerdotes, puso a cuchillo; así a hombres como a mujeres, niños y mamantes, bueyes y asnos y ovejas, todo a cuchillo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 22:19 Verse 19. And Nob-smote he with the edge of the sword] This is one of the worst acts in the life of Saul; his malice was implacable, and his wrath was cruel, and there is no motive of justice or policy by which such a barbarous act can be justified.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. And Nob, the city of the priests, smote he with the edge of the sword , etc.] Either Doeg or Saul; who, as Josephus says, sent men thither to slay all the inhabitants of it: both men and women, children and sucklings ; not sparing sex nor age: and oxen, and asses, and sheep, with the edge of the sword ; Saul, who was so tender hearted and merciful in the case of the Amalekites, when his orders from the Lord were utterly to destroy them, ( 1 Samuel 15:2,3), that he spared their king, and the best of their cattle, ( 1 Samuel 15:7-9); yet now so cruel to a city of the priests, as to destroy all the inhabitants of it, and cattle in it; and yet this bloody affair of Saul’s is not taken notice of afterwards, only his slaughter of the Gibeonites, ( 2 Samuel 21:1); and Abarbinel is of opinion, that the inhabitants of this place were Gibeonites, who were hewers of wood, and drawers of water, to the house of the Lord here, ( Joshua 9:23,27). Now Saul was the more severe this city, to deter others from joining with David, who, if they did, must expect the same treatment.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 6-19 - See the nature of jealous malice and its pitiful arts. Saul looks upo all about him as his enemies, because they do not just say as he says In Ahimelech's answer to Saul we have the language of consciou innocence. But what wickedness will not the evil spirit hurry men to when he gets the dominion! Saul alleges that which was utterly fals and unproved. But the most bloody tyrants have found instruments of their cruelty as barbarous as themselves. Doeg, having murdered the priests, went to the city, Nob, and put all to the sword there. Nothin so vile but those may do it, who have provoked God to give them up to their hearts' lusts. Yet this was the accomplishment of the threatenings against the house of Eli. Though Saul was unrighteous in doing this, yet God was righteous in permitting it. No word of God shall fall to the ground.
