1 Samuel 10:19 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Present yourselves - by your tribes - It appears that, in order to find out the proper person who should be made their king, they must determine by lot:

1. The tribe.

2. The thousands or grand divisions by families.

3. The smaller divisions by families. And,

4. The individual.

When the lot was cast for the tribe, Benjamin was taken; when for the thousand, the division of Matri was taken; when for the family, the family of Kish was taken; when for the individual, Saul, the son of Kish, was taken.

The Earliest Chapters in Divine Revelation
[Sidenote: The nature of inspiration] Since the days of the Greek philosophers the subject of inspiration and revelation has been fertile theme for discussion and dispute among scholars and theologians. Many different theories have been advanced, and ultimately abandoned as untenable. In its simplest meaning and use, inspiration describes the personal influence of one individual upon the mind and spirit of another. Thus we often say, "That man inspired me." What we are or do under the influence
