1 Samuel 13:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Lastly, he repeats once more his admonition, that they would continue stedfast in the fear of God, threatening at the same time the destruction of both king and people if they should do wrong (on 1 Samuel 12:24, see 1 Samuel 7:3 and Joshua 24:14, where the form יראוּ is also found). "For see what great things He has done for you" (shown to you), not by causing it to thunder and rain at Samuel's prayer, but by giving them a king. עם הגדּיל, as in Genesis 19:19.
