The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Samuel 23:12
Then said David, will the men of Keilah deliver me and my men
into the hand of Saul?
&c.] That is, the lords and great men of the
place, the governor of the city, and the heads of it, the chief
magistrates in it:
and the Lord said, they will deliver [thee] up:
that is, provided he
stayed there; for the Lord knew the dispositions and affections of
their minds, that they were inclined to do it, and would do it, if he
continues among them till Saul came down; which showed the great
ingratitude of this people to their deliverer.
