And Saul said unto him, why have ye conspired against me,
thou, and the son of Jesse?
&c.] No less than treason and rebellion is he charged with, in conjunction with David; the proof follows: in that thou hast given him bread and a sword;
the shewbread, and the sword of Goliath, ( 1 Samuel 21:6 ) ( 22:10 ) , and so had furnished him with food and arms; one that he suggests was in rebellion against him, and therefore he must be involved in the same crime; but the stronger proof follows and hast inquired of God for him, that he should rise against me, to
lie in wait as at this day:
inquired of the Lord for him by Urim and Thummim, to know his mind in this affair, and thereby encouraged him to rise up in rebellion against him, and to lie in wait, as he did at the present time, watching for an opportunity to seize his crown and kingdom.
