Treasury of Scripture

And they will salute you, and give you two loaves of bread; which you shall receive of their hands.

salute thee [heb] ask thee of peace

Judges 18:15
And they turned thitherward, and came to the house of the young man the Levite, even unto the house of Micah, and saluted him.









Verse 4. - These pilgrims would salute Saul, i.e. give him the usual friendly greeting of travellers, and would then present to him, a stranger, two loaves of the bread intended for their offering at Bethel. By so doing, in the first place, they acknowledged him as their lord (see 1 Samuel 9:7; 1 Samuel 16:20), and, secondly, they indicated that the king would henceforth share with the sanctuary the offerings of the people. And Saul was to receive of their hands the present, as being now his due, for by anointing him Samuel had designated him as king.
