SEV Biblia, Chapter 28:17 El SEÑOR, pues, Â¡ha hecho como habló por mí mano! Pues ha cortado el SEÑOR el reino de tu mano, y lo ha dado a tu compañero David.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 28:17 Verse 17. The Lord hath done to him] I believe these words are spoken of Saul; and as they are spoken to him, it seems evident that him should be thee. The Vulgate has tibi, the Septuagint soi, to THEE: and this is the reading of five of Kennicott's and Deuteronomy Rossi's MSS., as well as of both the Bibles printed at Venice in 1518, where we read ûl lecha, to THEE, instead of wl lo, to HIM.
As he spake by me] Here was no illusion; none but Samuel could say this.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. And the Lord hath done to him , etc.] To David, Saul’s enemy, as he insinuated he was: as he spake by me ; pretending to be the true Samuel, and wearing the guise of him, he speaks his very words, which he was well acquainted with, and could deliver exactly as he did: for the Lord hath rent the kingdom out of thine hand, and given it to thy neighbour ; which words are expressed by Samuel, ( 1 Samuel 15:28); [even] unto David ; which is added by the apparition, by way of explanation, interpreting the words of David; which he might safely venture to do, seeing such a train of circumstances had occurred since the delivery of these words, which plainly made it appear he was intended.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-19 - When we go from the plain path of duty, every thing draws us furthe aside, and increases our perplexity and temptation. Saul desires the woman to bring one from the dead, with whom he wished to speak; thi was expressly forbidden, De 18:11. All real or pretended witchcraft of conjuration, is a malicious or an ignorant attempt to gain knowledge of help from some creature, when it cannot be had from the Lord in the path of duty. While Samuel was living, we never read of Saul's going to advise with him in any difficulties; it had been well for him if he had. But now he is dead, "Bring me up Samuel." Many who despise an persecute God's saints and ministers when living, would be glad to have them again, when they are gone. The whole shows that it was no huma fraud or trick. Though the woman could not cause Samuel's being sent yet Saul's inquiry might be the occasion of it. The woman's surpris and terror proved that it was an unusual and unexpected appearance Saul had despised Samuel's solemn warnings in his lifetime, yet no that he hoped, as in defiance of God, to obtain some counsel an encouragement from him, might not God permit the soul of his departe prophet to appear to Saul, to confirm his former sentence, and denounc his doom? The expression, "Thou and thy sons shall be with me," mean no more than that they shall be in the eternal world. There appear much solemnity in God's permitting the soul of a departed prophet to come as a witness from heaven, to confirm the word he had spoken of earth.
