Treasury of Scripture

Then Saul went up from following the Philistines: and the Philistines went to their own place.









(46) Then Saul went up from following the Philistines.--Saul recognised now that the fault which caused the oracle of the Urim and Thummim to keep silence was his, and not Jonathan's. He seems quietly to have acquiesced with Ahijah's evident reluctance to countenance a public pursuit; he drew off his forces then from the direction of the enemy, and went up, no doubt, to Gibeah; but the power of the Philistines for the time seems to have been utterly broken, and they retreated to their own districts along the sea coasts.

Verse 46. - Saul went up, etc. Thus, as the final result of his self-will, Saul had to discontinue his pursuit of the Philistines, and their power, though weakened by the overthrow, remained unbroken. SUMMARY OF SAUL'S WARS, AND ACCOUNT OF HIS FAMILY (vers. 47-52).
