SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:6 Â¶ Y oyó Saúl como había aparecido David, y los que estaban con él. Estaba entonces Saúl en Gabaa debajo de un árbol en Ramá, y tenía su lanza en su mano, y todos sus criados estaban en derredor de él.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 22:6 Verse 6. Saul abode in Gibeah] Saul and his men were in pursuit of David, and had here, as is the general custom in the East, encamped on a height, for so Ramah should be translated, as in the margin. His spear, the ensign of power (see on 1 Samuel xviii. 11,) was at hand, that is stuck in the ground where he rested, which was the mark to the soldiers that there was their general's tent.
And all his servants were standing about him] That is, they were encamped around him, or perhaps here there is a reference to a sort of council of war called by Saul for the purpose of delivering the speech recorded in the following verses.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 6. When Saul heard that David was discovered, and the men that [were] with him , etc.] That it was known where David was, and what number of men were gathered to him, and that they now openly appeared in the tribe of Judah; for some time Saul had heard nothing of him, but now a report had reached his ears that David was in arms, and at the head of a number of men; which now greatly alarmed Saul, and possessed him with fears and jealousies of his people, and all about him: now Saul abode in Gibeah, under a tree in Ramah ; this was Gibeah of Saul, and in or near which was a place called Ramah, or an high place, as the word signifies, on which was a remarkable tree, and under that Saul abode, being a proper shelter for him from any inclemency of the weather; for this was not Ramah where Samuel dwelt, though the Jews in the Talmud so think, and metaphorically understand the tree in it of Samuel in Ramah praying for him, by means of which he continued two years in the height of his kingdom; but this was a tree in a literal sense. R. Jonah f454 says it is possible it might be the same which in Arabia is called Ethel, and is like to a tamarisk tree: having his spear in his hand : ready to defend himself, and revenge his enemies; or rather which he held as a sceptre in his hand; (see Gill on “ Samuel 20:33”); and all his servants [were] standing about him ; in reverence of him, and honour to him, waiting upon him, and ready to obey his orders: these were his courtiers, or his guards, or both.
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.
