1 Sam 15:30

15:30 honor me. Saul’s real concern becomes clear in this his second confession (cf. vv. 24, 25 and note). As Samuel seems already to suspect (v. 26 note), Saul is less concerned with being reconciled to the Lord than with finding honor before the elders of “my people.” In return for this honor, Saul offers to do obeisance before the Lord “your” God.
