    Definitions for 1 Samuel 10:19

    Nay - No.

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Samuel 10:19

    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.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Samuel 10:19

    For the use of "thousand" as equivalent to "family," see 1 Samuel 23:23; Judges 6:15 margin. In Numbers 1:16 it may mean whole tribes.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Samuel 10:19
