Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 10:14

_ _ And inquired not of the Lord — He had done so in form (1 Samuel 28:6), but not in the spirit of a humble penitent, nor with the believing confidence of a sincere worshipper. His enquiry was, in fact, a mere mockery, and his total want of all right religious impressions was manifested by his rushing from God to a wretched impostor in the service of the devil [1 Samuel 28:7].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 10:8-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 10:14

Enquired not — He did in some sort, but not in a right manner, not humbly and penitently, not diligently and importunately, not patiently and perseveringly. Nor 'till he was brought to the last extremity. And then it was too late.
