Samuel tells the Lord, anointing a new king while the reigning king is still alive is dangerous -- as if God didn't know. , On one occasion Hannah went to the sanctuary and prayed for a child.

In chapter 16, Saul’s demonic fits are calmed by David’s playing of the harp. 17 Samuel’s sons could not have imagined how far the effects of their greed and selfishness would reach. Samuel is to fill his horn with oil and go to Jesse the Bethlehemite, where he is to anoint one of his sons as Saul’s replacement. Hannah's exultant hymn of thanksgiving resembles in several points Mary's later Magnificat.

According to documentary scholarship, the Deuteronomistic historians preserved this view of Samuel while contributing him as "the first of prophets to articulate the failure of Israel to live up to its covenant with God. David is also a good-looking young man, lacking none of the qualities found in his older brother save his age and position as first-born. 11 “Shall I then take my bread and my water and my meat that I have slaughtered for my shearers, and give it to men whose origin I do not know? It is not that Nabal is unaware of who David is. "; The Bible does not say specifically say that Elkanah lived in a place known as Zuph. He is venerated as a prophet by Jews, Christians, and Muslims. He does not sense the Lord’s presence and power, through the Spirit. 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. In 1 Samuel 8:1-7 we are told that the nation of Israel had rejected God as their king. When the author of 1 Samuel turns his attention from Saul to David, he calls us to consider a man who is a prototype of our Lord Jesus Christ. Nonetheless, Elkanah favored Hannah. His distress is in response to God regretting that He made Saul king. This should not be surprising, because God is sovereign. Because of the external threat from other tribes, such as the Philistines, the tribal leaders decided that there was a need for a more unified, central government, and demanded Samuel appoint a king so that they could be like other nations. Samuel already knew that God would give Israel a new and better king, to replace King Saul (15:28). From Saul’s words spoken to Jesse, it is evident that Saul is aware of David’s role as the sheep-tender too (see verse 19). The Lord chose David even though he did not look as big and handsome as his older brothers.
