    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Samuel 10:22

    The Lord answered - What a continual access to God! and what condescension in his attention to all their requests!

    The stuff among which he had secreted himself may mean the carts, baggage, etc., brought by the people to Mizpeh.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Samuel 10:22

    Among the stuff - Rather, "the baggage." The assembly was like a camp, and the baggage (impedimenta) of the whole congregation was probably collected in one place, where the wagons were arranged for protection.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Samuel 10:22

    10:22 Enquired - Either by Urim or Thummim, which was the usual way of enquiry. Or, by Samuel, who by his prayer procured an answer. Stuff - Among the carriages or baggage of the people there assembled. This he probably did, from a sense of his own unworthiness.
