    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Samuel 28:24

    The woman had a fat calf - The ancients used great despatch in their cookery. In hot countries they could not keep flesh meat by them any length of time; hence they generally kept young animals, such as calves, lambs, and kids, ready for slaughter; and when there was occasion, one of them was killed, and dressed immediately.

    Unleavened bread - There was not time to bake leavened bread; that would have taken considerable time, in order that the leaven might leaven the whole lump.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Samuel 28:24

    28:24 Unleavened - Not having time to leaven it.
