Now then bring it about, for the LORD has promised David, saying, 'By the hand of my servant David I will save my people Israel from the hand of the Philistines, and from the hand of all their enemies.'"
Now then do [it]
Make him your king, and I shall no longer oppose it as I have
for the Lord hath spoken of David;
concerning his being king, and the saviour of his people Israel:
saying, by the hand of my servant David I will save my
people Israel out of the hand of the Philistines, and out of the hand of
all their enemies;
and which, though where recorded in so many words, yet was the
sense of the promise of making him king, and the design of his
unction; and besides they might have been spoken to Samuel,
though not written; and which he might report, and so might pass
from one to another to be generally known.
