    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Samuel 14:2

    Under a pomegranate tree - Under Rimmon, which not only signifies a pomegranate tree, but also a strong rock, in which six hundred Benjamites took shelter, Judges 20:45. Probably it was in this very rock that Saul and his six hundred men now lay hidden.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Samuel 14:2

    Under a pomegranate - Compare 1 Samuel 22:6; Judges 4:5. Saul was at the northern extremity of Gibeah, about an hour's march from Geba, where Jonathan was.

    Migron, if the reading is correct, must be a different place from the Migron of Isaiah 10:28.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Samuel 14:2

    14:2 Tarried - In the outworks of the city where he had entrenched himself to observe the motion of the Philistines. In - Or, towards Migron, which was near Gibeah.
