1 Samuel 10

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31]

1SAM 10:1 Then Samuel took the vial of oil, and poured it on his head, and kissed him, and said, Isn't it that Yahweh has anointed you to be prince over his inheritance?

1SAM 10:2 When you are departed from me today, then you shall find two men by Rachel's tomb, in the border of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will tell you, The donkeys which you went to seek are found; and, behold, your father has left off caring for the donkeys, and is anxious for you, saying, What shall I do for my son?

1SAM 10:3 Then shall you go on forward from there, and you shall come to the oak of Tabor; and there shall meet you there three men going up to God to Bethel, one carrying three kids, and another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a bottle of wine:

1SAM 10:4 and they will greet you, and give you two loaves of bread, which you shall receive of their hand.

1SAM 10:5 After that you shall come to the hill of God, where is the garrison of the Philistines: and it shall happen, when you are come there to the city, that you shall meet a band of prophets coming down from the high place with a psaltery, and a tambourine, and a pipe, and a harp, before them; and they will be prophesying:

1SAM 10:6 and the Spirit of Yahweh will come mightily on you, and you shall prophesy with them, and shall be turned into another man.

1SAM 10:7 Let it be, when these signs are come to you, that you do as occasion shall serve you; for God is with you.

1SAM 10:8 You shall go down before me to Gilgal; and, behold, I will come down to you, to offer burnt offerings, and to sacrifice sacrifices of peace-offerings: seven days shall you wait, until I come to you, and show you what you shall do.

1SAM 10:9 It was so, that when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, God gave him another heart: and all those signs happened that day.

1SAM 10:10 When they came there to the hill, behold, a band of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came mightily on him, and he prophesied among them.

1SAM 10:11 It happened, when all who knew him before saw that, behold, he prophesied with the prophets, then the people said one to another, What is this that is come to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?

1SAM 10:12 One of the same place answered, Who is their father? Therefore it became a proverb, Is Saul also among the prophets?

1SAM 10:13 When he had made an end of prophesying, he came to the high place.

1SAM 10:14 Saul's uncle said to him and to his servant, Where went you? He said, To seek the donkeys; and when we saw that they were not found, we came to Samuel.

1SAM 10:15 Saul's uncle said, Tell me, Please, what Samuel said to you.

1SAM 10:16 Saul said to his uncle, He told us plainly that the donkeys were found. But concerning the matter of the kingdom, of which Samuel spoke, he didn't tell him.

1SAM 10:17 Samuel called the people together to Yahweh to Mizpah;

1SAM 10:18 and he said to the children of Israel, Thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all the kingdoms that oppressed you:

1SAM 10:19 but you have this day rejected your God, who himself saves you out of all your calamities and your distresses; and you have said to him, [No], but set a king over us. Now therefore present yourselves before Yahweh by your tribes, and by your thousands.

1SAM 10:20 So Samuel brought all the tribes of Israel near, and the tribe of Benjamin was taken.

1SAM 10:21 He brought the tribe of Benjamin near by their families; and the family of the Matrites was taken; and Saul the son of Kish was taken: but when they sought him, he could not be found.

1SAM 10:22 Therefore they asked of Yahweh further, Is there yet a man to come here? Yahweh answered, Behold, he has hid himself among the baggage.

1SAM 10:23 They ran and fetched him there; and when he stood among the people, he was higher than any of the people from his shoulders and upward.

1SAM 10:24 Samuel said to all the people, "You see him whom Yahweh has chosen, that there is none like him among all the people?" All the people shouted, and said, [Long] live the king.

1SAM 10:25 Then Samuel told the people the manner of the kingdom, and wrote it in a book, and laid it up before Yahweh. Samuel sent all the people away, every man to his house.

1SAM 10:26 Saul also went to his house to Gibeah; and there went with him the host, whose hearts God had touched.

1SAM 10:27 But certain worthless fellows said, How shall this man save us? They despised him, and brought him no present. But he held his peace.
