SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:15 Y Samuel estuvo acostado hasta la mañana, y abrió las puertas de la casa del SEÑOR. Y Samuel temía descubrir la visión a Elí.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 3:15 Verse 15. Samuel feared to show Eli] He reverenced him as a father, and he feared to distress him by showing what the Lord had purposed to do. It does not appear that God had commanded Samuel to deliver this message: he, therefore, did not attempt it till adjured by Eli, ver. 17.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 15. And Samuel lay until the morning , etc.] It is not said he slept; it can hardly be thought he should, when it is considered what a new, strange, and uncommon thing had befallen him; what honour had been conferred on him a child, that the Lord should vouchsafe to speak and communicate his mind to him, and what dreadful things were said of Eli’s family; all which must greatly affect his mind, and keep him waking: however, he lay musing thereon until morning, and then arose, and opened the doors of the house of the Lord ; as he had used to do, and which was the business of the Levites; though he had been so highly honoured, he was not elated with it, nor thought himself above so low and mean an employment in the house of God; nor did he run to Eli or others, boasting of what he had met with that night, but modestly and carefully attended to what was his common and constant employment every morning: and Samuel feared to show Eli the vision ; the vision of prophecy, as the Targum; what God had foretold should befall him and his family, lest he should be grieved on more accounts than one; partly because he, an old man, an high priest, and judge of Israel, was overlooked and neglected, and the prophecy was delivered to a child, and not to him; and partly because of the sad things that should come upon his family.
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.
