    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Samuel 14:19

    While Saul talked unto the priest - Before he had made an end of consulting him, the increasing noise of the panic-struck Philistines called his attention; and finding there was no time to lose, he immediately collected his men and fell on them.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Samuel 14:19

    Withdraw thine hand - i. e., "Desist from what thou art about." Saul in his impatience to join the battle would not wait for the answer from God, which he had desired Ahijah to inquire for; just as later 1 Samuel 14:35 he would not wait to finish the altar which he had begun to build. Had he now waited he would doubtless have avoided the error into which he fell.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Samuel 14:19

    14:19 Withdraw - Trouble not thyself to enquire; for I now plainly discern the matter.
