Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO FIRST SAMUEL 28\\

The Philistines gathering together, to fight with Israel, Saul trembled
at it, not being able to get any answer from the Lord about it in any
way whatever, \\#1Sa 28:1-6\\; upon which he applies to a woman that had a
familiar spirit to bring him up Samuel, which she did, \\#1Sa 28:7-14\\;
and what passed between Saul and Samuel, or at least the apparition in
his form, is recorded, \\#1Sa 28:15-19\\; which so struck him, as to make
him strengthless, and so melancholy, that he refused to eat until
persuaded, or rather compelled, by the woman and his servants,
\\#1Sa 28:20-25\\.
