This Chapter Verse Commentaries:





I will not rule over you, to wit, as a king, which you desire.



The Lord shall rule over you, in a special manner, as he hath hitherto done, by judges, whom God did particularly appoint and direct, even by Urim and Thummim, and assist upon all occasions; whereas kings had a greater power, and only a general dependence upon God, as other kings had. Compare 1Sa_8:6,7.
