(48) Smote the Amalekites.--Out of the many wars the king waged, this war with Amalek is singled out, for in the new development of Hebrew power by which Saul's reign was marked this campaign or series of campaigns was especially prominent. This war is related with some detail in the next chapter, but it is there introduced on account of other considerations. The English translators in their rendering, "he gathered an host," have followed the Syriac and Vulg.; the marginal translation, "he wrought mightily," is the more accurate.

Verse 48. - He gathered a host. So the Syriac and Vulgate, but the margin is probably the true meaning, "He wrought mightily," or valiantly. 14:47-52 Here is a general account of Saul's court and camp. He had little reason to be proud of his royal dignity, nor had any of his neighbours cause to envy him, for he had but little enjoyment after he took the kingdom. And often men's earthly glory makes a blaze just before the dark night of disgrace and woe comes on them.
