Definitions for 1-samuel 13 :12

Supplication - Petition; an expression of need.

Clarke's Commentary on 1-samuel 13 :12

I forced myself - It was with great reluctance that I did what I did. In all this Saul was sincere, but he was rash, and regardless of the precept of the Lord, which precept or command he most evidently had received, 1 Samuel 13:13. And one part of this precept was, that the Lord should tell him what he should do. Without this information, in an affair under the immediate cognizance of God, he should have taken no step.

Barnes' Commentary on 1-samuel 13 :12

Wesley's Commentary on 1-samuel 13 :12
