    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:1

    ¶ Y había un varón de Benjamín, hombre valeroso, el cual se llamaba Cis, hijo de Abiel, hijo de Zeror, hijo de Becorat, hijo de Afía, hijo de un varón de Jemini (Benjamín ).

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 9:1

    Verse 1. A mighty man of
    power.] Literally, a strong man; this appears to be the only power he possessed; and the physical strength of the father may account for the extraordinary size of the son. See ver. 2.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Now there was a man of
    Benjamin , etc.] Of the tribe of Benjamin, which had its name from the youngest son of Jacob, and one of this tribe was the first king of Israel: whose name was Kish : whom the apostle calls Cis, ( Acts 13:21), and Josephus Cises; his name, according to Hillerus f163 , signifies “ensnared”; for what reason it was given him is not certain: the son of Abiel ; in ( 1 Chronicles 8:33 9:39), he is called Ner that begat Kish; and in this book, ( 1 Samuel 14:50,51) Ner and Kish are represented as brethren, the sons of Abiel: to reconcile this, it may be observed, that Ner being the elder brother, on the death of his father Abiel, had the care and bringing up of his younger brother Kish; and therefore when he is said to beget him, the meaning is, not that he was the parent of him, but the bringer up of him; or rather, as Kimchi thinks, Abiel had two sons, one of which was Ner; and that he had two sons, one that was called after his own name Ner, who was the father of Abner; and the other Kish, the father of Saul: the son of Zeror, the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite ; of these persons we nowhere else read: a mighty man of power ; not a man of riches, or of authority, neither a wealthy man, nor a magistrate, for his family was mean and contemptible, ( 1 Samuel 9:21 10:27) but a man of great strength, an able bodied man, and of great natural fortitude, and courage of mind.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 -
    Saul readily went to seek his father's asses. His obedience to his father was praise-worthy. His servant proposed, that since they wer now at Ramah, they should call on Samuel, and take his advice. Whereve we are, we should use our opportunities of acquainting ourselves with those who are wise and good. Many will consult a man of God, if he comes in their way, that would not go a step out of their way to ge wisdom. We sensibly feel worldly losses, and bestow much pains to make them up; but how little do we attempt, and how soon are we weary, is seeking the salvation of our souls! If ministers could tell men how to secure their property, or to get wealth, they would be more consulte and honoured than they now are, though employed in teaching them how to escape eternal misery, and to obtain eternal life. Most people woul rather be told their fortune than their duty. Samuel needed not their money, nor would he have denied his advice, if they had not brought it but they gave it to him as a token of respect, and of the value the put upon his office, and according to the general usage of those times always to bring a present to those in authority.
