When they came thither to the hill
Or, to Gibeah, as the Targum, and so Josephus F5:
behold, a company of prophets met him;
as foretold, ( 1 Samuel 10:5 ) ,
and the Spirit of the Lord came upon him, and he prophesied among them;
the spirit of prophecy, as the Targum, and he sung praises among them; he joined with them in their psalmody, and performed it as regularly as if he had been brought up with them. The Jews say F6 he prophesied of the world to come, of Gog and Magog, and of the rewards of the righteous, and of the punishment of the wicked.
