Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The thread of the narrative, which was broken off in 1 Samuel 9:15, is resumed in 1 Samuel 9:18. Saul drew near to Samuel in the gate, and asked him for the seer's house. The expression השּׁער בּתוך is used to define more precisely the general phrase in 1 Samuel 9:14, העיר בּתוך בּאים; and there is no necessity to alter העיר in 1 Samuel 9:14 into השּׁער, as Thenius proposes, for העיר בּתוך כּוא does not mean to go (or be) in the middle of the town, as he imagines, but to go into, or enter, the town; and the entrance to the town was through the gate.
