SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:11 Â¿Me entregarán los señores de Keila en sus manos? Â¿Descenderá Saúl, como tu siervo tiene oído? SEÑOR Dios de Israel, te ruego que lo declares a tu siervo. Y el SEÑOR dijo: Sí , descenderá.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 23:11 Verse 11. - 12. In these verses we find the following questions and answers:-David said, Will Saul come down to Keilah? And the Lord said, He will come down. Will the men of Keilah deliver me and my men into the hand of Saul? And the Lord said, They will deliver thee up. In this short history we find an ample proof that there is such a thing as contingency in human affairs; that is, God has poised many things between a possibility of being and not being, leaving it to the will of the creature to turn the scale. In the above answers of the Lord the following conditions were evidently implied:-IF thou continue in Keilah, Saul will certainly come down; and IF Saul come down, the men of Keilah will deliver thee into his hands. Now though the text positively asserts that Saul would come to Keilah, yet he did not come; and that the men of Keilah would deliver David into his hand, yet David was not thus delivered to him. And why? Because David left Keilah; but had he stayed, Saul would have come down, and the men of Keilah would have betrayed David. We may observe from this that, however positive a declaration of God may appear that refers to any thing in which man is to be employed, the prediction is not intended to suspend or destroy free agency, but always comprehends in it some particular condition.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. Will the men of Keilah deliver me up into his hands? will Saul come down, as thy servant hath heard ? etc.] That is, if David continued there, which is the supposition all proceeds upon. The questions are not orderly put, as may easily be observed, the last should have been first; which shows some perturbation of mind David was in upon hearing the design of Saul against him: O Lord God of Israel, I beseech thee, tell thy servant ; give an answer by Urim and Thummim, as he did: and the Lord said, he will come down ; if David abode there; that was in his thoughts, in his purpose and design, which the Lord, being omniscient, full well knew, who knows all future contingencies: hence the Jews gather, that two things are not to be asked together; and if they are asked, only answer is made to one, and the answer is only made to that which it was proper to ask first; and that which is asked out of order should be asked again, which was the case here, as follows.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-13 - Well might David complain of his enemies, that they rewarded him evi for good, and that for his love they were his adversaries. Christ wa used thus basely. David applied to his great Protector for direction No sooner was the ephod brought him than he made use of it. We have the Scriptures in our hands, let us take advice from them in doubtfu cases. Say, Bring hither the Bible. David's address to God is very solemn, also very particular. God allows us to be so in our addresse to him; Lord, direct me in this matter, about which I am now at a loss God knows not only what will be, but what would be, if it were no hindered; therefore he knows how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and how to render to every man according to his works.
