1 Samuel 15:2 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"And he acquired power;" חיל עשׂה (as in Numbers 24:18) does not merely signify he proved himself brave, or he formed an army, but denotes the development and unfolding of power in various respects. Here it relates more particularly to the development of strength in the war against Amalek, by virtue of which Saul smote this arch-enemy of Israel, and put an end to their depredations. This war is described more fully in 1 Samuel 15, on account of its consequences in relation to Saul's own sovereignty.
