1 Samuel 16:15 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

When Jesse thereupon brought up his other sons, one after another, before Samuel, the prophet said in the case of each, "This also Jehovah hath not chosen." As Samuel must be the subject to the verb ויּאמר in 1 Samuel 16:8-10, we may assume that he had communicated the object of his coming to Jesse.
