    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Samuel 13:15

    And Samuel arose - Though David, in the Divine purpose, is appointed to be captain over the people, yet Saul is not to be removed from the government during his life; Samuel therefore accompanies him to Gibeah, to give him the requisite help in this conjuncture.

    About six hundred men - The whole of the Israelitish army at this time, and not one sword or spear among them!

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Samuel 13:15

    Samuel arose - Saul could not return to his own station at Michmash, seeing it was occupied by the Philistines; so, perhaps by Samuel's advice (since, according to the text, he preceded him there), he effected a junction with Jonathan at Gibeah. Some would read "Saul" instead of "Samuel."
