"And Davidª knewª° that¹ Saulª secretly practisedª° mischiefª against¹ him; and he saidª° to¹ Abiatharª the priest,ª Bring hitherª° the ephod.ª ... Then saidª° David,ª Will the menª of Keilahª deliverª° me and my men²¹ into the handª of Saul?ª And the LORDª said,ª° They will deliver [thee] up.ª°" {1Sm 23:9-12} + "And now,¹ O LORDª my God,ª thou¹ hast made¹ thy servantª kingª° instead¹ of Davidª my father:ª and I¹ [am but] a littleª child:ª I knowª° not¹ [how] to go outª° or come in.ª° ... Giveª° therefore thy servantª an understandingª° heartª to judgeª°¹ thy people,ª that I may discernª° between¹ goodª and bad:ª for¹ who¹ is ableª° to judgeª° this¹ thy so greatª¹ a people?ª" {1Kg 3:7-9} + "Notª thatª we areª° sufficientª ofª ourselvesª to thinkª° any thingª asª ofª ourselves;ª butª ourª sufficiencyª [is] ofª God;ª" {2Co 3:5} + "ª If¹ any²¹ of youª lackª° wisdom,ª let him askª° ofª God,ª that givethª° to allª [men] liberally,ª andª upbraidethª° not;ª andª it shall be givenª° him.ª" {Jms 1:5} + "Everyª goodª giftª andª everyª perfectª giftª isª° from above,ª and cometh downª° fromª the¹ Fatherª of lights,ª withª whomª isª° noª variableness,ª neitherª shadowª of turning.ª" {Jms 1:17}
Jephthah uttered:
That is, upon his elevation, he immediately retired to his devotion, and in prayer spread the whole matter before God, both his choice to the office, and his execution of the office, as one that had his eye ever toward the Lord, and would do nothing without him; that leaned not to his own understanding or courage, but depended on the Almighty God, and his favour. This is an ensample worthy of universal imitation; in All Our Ways, whether great or apparently subordinate, let us acknowledge God and seek his direction. So shall we make our way prosperous, and obtain that peace which passeth all understanding. Jephthah opened his campaign with prayer.
"Then the childrenª of Ammonª were gathered together,ª° and encampedª° in Gilead.ª And the childrenª of Israelª assembled themselves together,ª° and encampedª° in Mizpeh.ª" {Jdg 10:17} + "Then all¹ the childrenª of Israelª went out,ª° and the congregationª was gathered togetherª° as oneª man,ª from Danª¹ even to¹ Beersheba,ª with the landª of Gilead,ª unto¹ the LORDª in Mizpeh.ª" {Jdg 20:1} + "And Samuelª called²° the people² together¹¹¹ unto¹ the LORDª to Mizpeh;ª" {1Sm 10:17} + "And all¹ the peopleª went²°¹ to Gilgal;ª and there¹ they made Saul² kingª°¹¹ beforeª the LORDª in Gilgal;ª and there¹ they sacrificedª° sacrificesª of peace offeringsª beforeª the LORD;ª and there¹ Saulª and all¹ the men²¹ of Israelª rejoicedª° greatly.ª" {1Sm 11:15}
This Mizpeh was east of Jordan in the mountains of Gilead ("And Mizpah;ª forª he said,ª° The LORDª watchª° between¹ me and thee, when¹ we are absentª° oneª from another.ª¹" {Gen 31:49}); and hence called Mizpeh of Gilead ("Then the Spiritª of the LORDª came¹ upon¹ Jephthah,ª and he passed overª°¹ Gilead,ª and Manasseh,ª and passed overª°¹ Mizpehª of Gilead,ª and from Mizpehª¹ of Gileadª he passed overª° [unto] the childrenª of Ammon.ª" {Jdg 11:29}), to distinguish it from another place of the same name, west of Jordan, in the tribe of Judah. "And Dilean,ª and Mizpeh,ª and Joktheel,ª" {Jsh 15:38}
