1 Samuel 28:24

1 Samuel 28:24

And the woman had a fat calf in the house
This was reckoned a very dainty dish in those countries, and fit for any guests, see ( Genesis 18:7 ) ; Josephus says F12, she vouchsafed to feed and take care of it in her house, and it was very familiar with her; and he highly commends the liberality of the woman, and as worthy of imitation:

and she hasted and killed it;
and dressed it in some way or another, and which in those times was done speedily:

and took flour and kneaded [it], and did bake unleavened bread
which was soonest made, she not having time to leaven it.
