1 Samuel 14

1  Samuel
14. Saul shows himself to be an erratic and disorganized leader in this chapter.  
14.32  with blood...  I wonder how much this had to do with Saul's oath about nobody eating.
14.45  a face loosing moment for Saul.  Hoorah for the people and common sense.
14.49-50  This is one of those seemingly unimportant trivial sections that actually lays some groundwork to understand some of the dynamics of coming event.
     Ner -- Meaning: light / the father of Kish (1 Chr. 8:33). 1 Sam. 14:51 should be read, “Kish, the father of Saul, and Ner, the father of Abner, were the sons of Abiel”.   And hence this Kish and Ner were brothers, and Saul and Abner were first cousins (compare 1 Chr. 9:36).
14.50  I can hear Samuel saying, "I told you so."
