SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:11 Â¶ Y el SEÑOR dijo a Samuel: He aquí haré yo una cosa en Israel, que a quien la oyere, le retiñirán ambos oídos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 3:11 Verse 11. The Lord said to Samuel] He probably saw nothing, and only heard the voice; for it was not likely that any extraordinary representation could have been made to the eyes of a person so young. He heard a voice, but saw no similitude.
The ears-shall tingle.] It shall be a piercing word to all Israel; it shall astound them all; and, after having heard it, it will still continue to resound in their ears.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And the Lord said to Samuel , etc.] The voice of the Lord continued speaking to him: behold, I will do a thing in Israel ; which may be particularly interpreted of the taking of the ark, and the slaying of the two sons of Eli; and which is elsewhere represented as the Lord’s doing, for the sins of Eli’s family, ( Psalm 78:61,62) at which both the ears of everyone that heareth it shall tingle ; be struck with horror and amazement, and quite stunned, and know not what to think or say, like persons surprised with a violent clap of thunder, which strikes their ears so strongly, that the noise of it is not soon gone from them; this was verified in Eli, and in his daughter-in-law particularly, who, at the news of the above things, the one fell backwards and broke his neck, and the other fell into labour and died; and all Israel were struck with astonishment at these things.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-18 - What a great deal of guilt and corruption is there in us, concernin which we may say, It is the iniquity which our own heart knoweth; we are conscious to ourselves of it! Those who do not restrain the sins of others, when it is in their power to do it, make themselves partaker of the guilt, and will be charged as joining in it. In his remarkabl answer to this awful sentence, Eli acknowledged that the Lord had right to do as he saw good, being assured that he would do nothin wrong. The meekness, patience, and humility contained in those words show that he was truly repentant; he accepted the punishment of his sin.
