SEV Biblia, Chapter 31:11 Mas oyendo los de Jabes de Galaad esto que los filisteos hicieron a Saśl,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 31:11 Verse 11. When the inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead heard] This act of the men of Jabesh-gilead was an act of gratitude due to Saul, who, at the very commencement of his reign, rescued them from Nahash, king of the Ammonites, (see chap. xi. 1, &c.,) and by his timely succours saved them from the deepest degradation and the most oppressive tyranny. This heroic act, with the seven days' fast, showed that they retained a due sense of their obligation to this unfortunate monarch.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead , etc.] Who lived on the other side Jordan, about eight miles from Bethshan, according to Fuller f579 : heard of that which the Philistines had done to Saul ; not only that they had got the victory over him, and routed his army, but had abused his body, and hung it up by way of reproach and ignominy; which they could not bear to hear of, remembering with gratitude the kindness he had shown to them, in delivering them out of the hands of Nahash the Ammonite, ( 1 Samuel 11:1-13).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-13 - The Scripture makes no mention what became of the souls of Saul and his sons, after they were dead; but of their bodies only: secret thing belong not to us. It is of little consequence by what means we die, or what is done with our dead bodies. If our souls are saved, our bodie will be raised incorruptible and glorious; but not to fear His wrath who is able to destroy both body and soul in hell, is the extreme of folly and wickedness. How useless is the respect of fellow-creatures to those who are suffering the wrath of God! While pompous funerals, gran monuments, and he praises of men, honour the memory of the deceased the soul may be suffering in the regions of darkness and despair! Le us seek that honour which cometh from God only __________________________________________________________________
