SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:22 Y trabando Samuel de Saúl y de su criado, los metió al cenadero, y les dio lugar a la cabecera de los convidados, que eran como unos treinta varones.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 9:22 Verse 22. Brought them into the parlour] It might as well be called kitchen; it was the place where they sat down to feast.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 22. And Samuel took Saul and his servant, and brought them into the parlour , etc.] The dining room of the house, which belonged to the high place: and made them sit in the chiefest place among them that were bidden ; and who very probably were the principal persons in the city; and yet Saul was placed at the head of them by Samuel, to convince him that what he had said to him was in earnest, and to do him honour before all the people; and for the sake of him, and to show his respect to him, he placed his servant; his minister, also in the chief place with him; what was reckoned the highest and most honourable places at table, (see Gill on “ Matthew 23:6”). The guests were placed by the master of the feast according to their rank; and the dignity of the person, as Jarchi observes, was known by his manners and place of sitting: which were about thirty persons ; more or less; Josephus says seventy, disagreeing with the text, the Targum, Syriac and Arabic versions, but agreeing with the Septuagint.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 18-27 - Samuel, that good prophet, was so far from envying Saul, or bearing his any ill-will, that he was the first and most forward to do him honour Both that evening and early the next morning, Samuel communed with Sau upon the flat roof of the house. We may suppose Samuel now convince Saul that he was the person God had fixed upon for the government, an of his own willingness to resign. How different are the purposes of the Lord for us, from our intentions for ourselves! Perhaps Saul was the only one who ever went out to seek asses, and literally found kingdom; but many have set out and moved their dwellings to seek riche and pleasures, who have been guided to places where they foun salvation for their souls. Thus they have met with those who addresse them as if aware of the secrets of their lives and hearts, and have been led seriously to regard the word of the Lord. If this has been ou case, though our worldly plans have not prospered, let us not care for that; the Lord has given us, or has prepared us for, what is fa better __________________________________________________________________
