SEV Biblia, Chapter 28:20 Â¶ En aquel punto cayó Saúl en tierra cuan grande era, y tuvo gran temor por las palabras de Samuel; que no quedó en él esfuerzo ninguno, porque en todo aquel día y aquella noche no había comido pan.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 28:20 Verse 20. Then Saul fell straightway all along on the earth.] Literally, he fell with his own length, or with the fullness of his stature. He was so overwhelmed with this most dreadful message, that he swooned away, and thus fell at his own length upon the ground. The woman, being terrified, had probably withdrawn to some distance at the first appearance of the prophet; and Saul was left alone with Samuel. After some short time, the woman came again unto Saul, found him sore troubled, and offered him those succours which humanity dictated.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. Then Saul fell straightway all along on the earth , etc.] Fell at his full length at once, as if he had been thunderstruck, or pierced through with a dart or sword: and was sore afraid, because of the words of Samuel ; as he supposed they were, whose words never failed: and there was no strength in him : to rise up again, he was quite dispirited and strengthless: for he had eaten no bread all the day, nor all the night ; which contributed the more to his weakness; not only his fears, but not eating any food, occasioned his weakness, and that through want of an appetite, by reason of the great concern of his mind in his present troubles.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 20-25 - Those that expect any good counsel or comfort, otherwise than from God and in the way of his institutions, will be as wretchedly disappointe as Saul. Though terrified even to despair, he was not humbled. He confessed not his sins, offered no sacrifices, and presented n supplications. He does not seem to have cared about his sons or his people, or to have attempted any escape; but in sullen despair he rushed upon his doom. God sets up a few such beacons, to warn men no to stifle convictions, or despise his word. But while one repentin thought remains, let no sinner suppose himself in this case. Let his humble himself before God, determined to live and die beseeching his favour, and he will succeed __________________________________________________________________
