1 Samuel 9:14

_ _ Samuel came out against them, for to go up to the high place — Such were the simple manners of the times that this prophet, the chief man in Israel, was seen going to preside at a high festival undistinguished either by his dress or equipage from any ordinary citizen.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
