“The Lord will not forsake His people.”

1 Samuel 12

Saul proved his valour by defeating Nahash king of the Ammonites, whereupon the people assembled to establish him more fully in his kingdom. Samuel took advantage of this to end his official life and to warn the people.

1 Samuel 12:8-11

Bedan or, as some read it, Barak

1 Samuel 12:18

It seldom or never rains at that period in Palestine. Samuel’s prayers were as mighty as those of Elijah.

1 Samuel 12:19-22

A precious passage indeed. Election ensures to its objects immutable love, but where the reason for election lies none can tell.
