    Definitions for 1 Samuel 11:14

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Samuel 11:14

    Renew the kingdom - The unction of Saul, in the first instance, was a very private act; and his being appointed to be king was not known to the people in general. He had now shown himself worthy to command the people; and Samuel takes advantage of this circumstance to gain the general consent in his favor. Josephus says that Saul was anointed a second time at this convocation.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Samuel 11:14
