Introduction to 1 Samuel Chapter 10

In this chapter we read of Saul's being anointed king by Samuel, 1 Samuel 10:1, and of certain signs given as confirming the same, which should come to pass, and did, before Saul got to his father's house, 1 Samuel 10:2, of his arrival at his father's house, and of what passed between him and his uncle there, 1 Samuel 10:14, of Samuel's calling all Israel together at Mizpeh, and of the election of Saul by lot to be king, and of his being declared such, 1 Samuel 10:17, and of his return to his city, being respected by some, and despised by others, 1 Samuel 10:26.
