Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 9:6

_ _ there is in this city a man of God — Ramah was the usual residence of Samuel, but several circumstances, especially the mention of Rachel’s sepulchre, which lay in Saul’s way homeward [1 Samuel 10:2], lead to the conclusion that “this city” was not the Ramah where Samuel dwelt.

_ _ peradventure he can show us our way that we should go — It seems strange that a dignified prophet should be consulted in such an affair. But it is probable that at the introduction of the prophetic office, the seers had discovered things lost or stolen, and thus their power for higher revelations was gradually established.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 9:3-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 9:6

Honourable men — One of great reputation for his skill and faithfulness. Acquaintance with God and serviceableness to the kingdom of God, makes men truly honourable. The way — The course we should take to find the asses. He saith, peradventure, because he doubted whether so great a prophet would seek, or God would grant him a revelation concerning such mean matters: although sometimes God was pleased herein to condescend to his people, to cut off all pretence or occasion of seeking to heathenish divination.
