We had some account given us of Benjamin in the
foregoing chapter; here we have a larger catalogue of the great men
of that tribe. 1. Because of that tribe Saul came, the first king
of Israel, to the story of whom the sacred writer is hastening,
ch. x. 1. 2. Because
that tribe clave to Judah, inhabited much of Jerusalem, was one of
the two tribes that went into captivity, and returned back; and
that story also he has an eye to, ch. ix. 1. Here is, I. Some of the
heads of that tribe named, ver.
1-32. II. A more particular account of the family of
Saul, ver. 33-40.
