Verses 1-14

Saul’s Overthrow and Death

This chapter is abbreviated from 1 Samuel 31:1-13, but supplements it by statements that Saul’s head was fastened in the temple of Dagon, and by a brief explanation of the causes of his overthrow.

6. All his house] This cannot mean ’all his family,’ since Ish-bosheth and others of his children survived him (2 Samuel 2:8; 2 Samuel 21:8), but must refer to those of his household who attended him at Gilboa.

13. His transgression] The writer refers to what is related in 1 Samuel 13:13-14; 1 Samuel 15:1-9; 1 Samuel 28:7.

14. Enquired not of the Lord] Saul at first enquired of the Lord (1 Samuel 28:6), but on receiving no answer had recourse to the witch of Endor instead of being importunate in his supplications.
