Quotes to Consider:
C. F. Keil on I Samuel 10:1: "Anointing with
oil was a symbol of endowment with the Spirit of God; as the oil itself,
by virtue of the strength which it gives to the vital spirits, was a
symbol of the Spirit of God as the principle of divine and spiritual
power (see Lev. 8:12). Hitherto there had been no other anointing among
the people of God than that of the priests and sanctuary (Ex. 30:23ff.;
Lev. 8:10ff.). When Saul, therefore, was consecrated as king by
anointing, the monarchy was inaugurated as a divine institution,
standing on a par with the priesthood; through which henceforth the Lord
would also bestow upon His people the gifts of His Spirit for the
building up of His kingdom."
