The LXX. have, "Samuel arose and went away from Gilgal, and
the remainder of the people went up along with the men of war
after Samuel from Gilgal to Gibeah of Benjamin." This is
probably the true reading; for it does not appear that Samuel
went to Gibeah, which was Saul's usual residence; and the
Hebrew copyist, as Dr. Wall observes, seems to have missed a
line, and added to the sentence concerning Samuel, that which
ended the sentence concerning Saul. One MS. instead of
Samuel, in the beginning of the sentence, reads Saul.
