1 Samuel 11* Jabesh-gilead delivered. (1-11) Saul confirmed in his kingdom.(12-15)1-11 The first fruit of Saul's government was the rescue ofJabesh-gilead from the Ammonites. To save their lives, men willpart with liberty, and even consent to have their eyes put out;is it then no wisdom to part with that sin which is as dear tous as our right eye, rather than to be cast into hell-fire? Seethe faith and confidence of Saul, and, grounded thereon, hiscourage and resolution. See also his activity in this business.When the Spirit of the Lord comes upon men, it will make themexpert, even without experience. When zeal for the glory of God,and love for the brethren, urge men to earnest efforts, and whenGod is pleased to help, great effects may speedily be produced. 12-15 They now honoured Saul whom they had despised; and if anenemy be made a friend, that is more to our advantage than tohave him slain. The once despised Saviour will at length beacknowledged by all as the Lord's own anointed king. As yet,upon his mercy-seat, he receives the submission of rebels, andeven pleads their cause; but shortly, from his righteoustribunal, he will condemn all who persist in opposing him.
