Faithful Samuel

1Sam. 12:23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way: 
The people may have feared that Samuel would forsake them because they have forsaken Yahweh and Samuel. But that is not Samuel’s reaction. He is the shepherd of Israel and will not abandon the sheep, even if the sheep are in rebellion against him and against God. Like Moses, Samuel is faithful and entreats God on behalf of Israel.
