Then SamuelH8050 tookH3947 a vialH6378 of oil,H8081 and pouredH3332 it on his head,H7218 and kissedH5401 him, and said,H559 Is it not becauseH3588 the LORDH3068 has anointedH4886 you to be captainH5057 overH5921 his inheritance?H5159
When you are departedH3212 from me to day,H3117 then you shall findH4672 twoH8147 menH582 by Rachel'sH7354 sepulcherH6900 in the borderH1366 of BenjaminH1144 at Zelzah;H6766 and they will sayH559 to you, The assesH860 whichH834 you wentH1980 to seekH1245 are found:H4672 and, see,H2009 your fatherH1 has leftH5203 the careH1697 of the asses,H860 and sorrowsH1672 for you, saying,H559 WhatH4100 shall I doH6213 for my son?H1121
Then shall you goH2498 on forwardH1973 from there,H8033 and you shall comeH935 to the plainH436 of Tabor,H8396 and there shall meetH4672 you threeH7969 menH582 goingH5927 up to GodH430 to Bethel,H1008 oneH259 carryingH5375 threeH7969 kids,H1423 and anotherH259 carryingH5375 threeH7969 loavesH3603 of bread,H3899 and anotherH259 carryingH5375 a bottleH5035 of wine:H3196
And they will saluteH7965 you, and giveH5414 you twoH8147 loaves of bread;H3899 which you shall receiveH3947 of their hands.H3027
AfterH310 that you shall comeH935 to the hillH1389 of God,H430 whereH834 H8033 is the garrisonH5333 of the Philistines:H6430 and it shall comeH1961 to pass, when you are comeH935 thitherH8033 to the city,H5892 that you shall meetH6293 a companyH2256 of prophetsH5030 comingH3381 downH3381 from the highH1116 place with a psaltery,H5035 and a tabret,H8596 and a pipe,H2485 and a harp,H3658 beforeH6440 them; and they shall prophesy:H5012
And the SpiritH7307 of the LORDH3068 will comeH6743 on you, and you shall prophesyH5012 with them, and shall be turnedH2015 into anotherH312 man.H376
And let it be, whenH3588 theseH428 signsH226 are comeH935 to you, that you doH6213 as occasionH4672 serveH5647 you; for GodH430 is with you.
And you shall goH3381 downH3381 beforeH6440 me to Gilgal;H1537 and, behold,H2009 I will comeH3381 downH3381 to you, to offerH5927 burntH5930 offerings, and to sacrificeH2076 sacrificesH2077 of peaceH8002 offerings: sevenH7651 daysH3117 shall you tarry,H3176 tillH5704 I comeH935 to you, and showH3045 you whatH853 H834 you shall do.H6213
And it was so, that when he had turnedH6437 his backH7926 to goH3212 from Samuel,H8050 GodH430 gave him anotherH312 heart:H3820 and allH3605 thoseH428 signsH226 cameH935 to pass that day.H3117
And when they cameH935 thitherH8033 to the hill,H1389 behold,H2009 a companyH2256 of prophetsH5030 metH7125 him; and the SpiritH7307 of GodH430 cameH6743 on him, and he prophesiedH5012 amongH8432 them.
And it cameH1961 to pass, when allH3605 that knewH3045 him beforetimeH865 H8032 sawH7200 that, behold,H2009 he prophesiedH5012 amongH5973 the prophets,H5030 then the peopleH5971 saidH559 oneH376 to another,H7453 WhatH4100 is thisH2088 that is comeH1961 to the sonH1121 of Kish?H7027 Is SaulH7586 alsoH1571 among the prophets?H5030
And oneH376 of the same place answeredH6030 and said,H559 But whoH4310 is their father?H1 ThereforeH5921 H3651 it becameH1961 a proverb,H4912 Is SaulH7586 alsoH1571 among the prophets?H5030
And when he had made an endH3615 of prophesying,H5012 he cameH935 to the highH1116 place.
And Saul'sH7586 uncleH1730 saidH559 to him and to his servant,H5288 WhereH575 wentH1980 you? And he said,H559 To seekH1245 the asses:H860 and when we sawH7200 that they were noH369 where,H370 we cameH935 to Samuel.H8050
And Saul'sH7586 uncleH1730 said,H559 TellH5046 me, I prayH4994 you, whatH4100 SamuelH8050 saidH559 to you.
And SaulH7586 saidH559 to his uncle,H1730 He toldH5046 us plainlyH5046 that the assesH860 were found.H4672 But of the matterH1697 of the kingdom,H4410 whereofH834 SamuelH8050 spoke,H559 he toldH5046 him not.
And SamuelH8050 calledH6817 the peopleH5971 together to the LORDH3068 to Mizpeh;H4709
And saidH559 to the childrenH1121 of Israel,H3478 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 I broughtH5927 up IsraelH3478 out of Egypt,H4714 and deliveredH5337 you out of the handH3027 of the Egyptians,H4714 and out of the handH3027 of allH3605 kingdoms,H4467 and of them that oppressedH3905 you:
And you have this dayH3117 rejectedH3988 your God,H430 whoH834 himself savedH3467 you out of allH3605 your adversitiesH7451 and your tribulations;H6869 and you have saidH559 to him, No, but setH7760 a kingH4428 overH5921 us. NowH6258 therefore presentH3320 yourselves beforeH6440 the LORDH3068 by your tribes,H7626 and by your thousands.H505
And when SamuelH8050 had caused allH3605 the tribesH7626 of IsraelH3478 to comeH7126 near,H7126 the tribeH7626 of BenjaminH1144 was taken.H3920
When he had caused the tribeH7626 of BenjaminH1144 to comeH7126 nearH7126 by their families,H4940 the familyH4940 of MatriH4309 was taken,H3920 and SaulH7586 the sonH1121 of KishH7027 was taken:H3920 and when they soughtH1245 him, he could not be found.H4672
Therefore they inquiredH7592 of the LORDH3068 further,H5750 if the manH376 should yetH5750 comeH935 thither.H1988 And the LORDH3068 answered,H559 Behold H2009he has hidH2244 himselfH1931 amongH413 the stuff.H3627
And they ranH7323 and fetchedH3947 him there:H8033 and when he stoodH3320 amongH8432 the people,H5971 he was higherH1361 than anyH3605 of the peopleH5971 from his shouldersH7926 and upward.H4605
And SamuelH8050 saidH559 to allH3605 the people,H5971 SeeH7200 you him whomH834 the LORDH3068 has chosen,H977 that there is noneH369 likeH3644 him among allH3605 the people?H5971 And allH3605 the peopleH5971 shouted,H7321 and said,H559 God saveH2421 the king.H4428
Then SamuelH8050 toldH1696 the peopleH5971 the mannerH4941 of the kingdom,H4410 and wroteH3789 it in a book,H5612 and laidH3240 it up beforeH6440 the LORD.H3068 And SamuelH8050 sentH7971 allH3605 the peopleH5971 away, every manH376 to his house.H1004
And SaulH7586 alsoH1571 wentH1980 homeH1004 to Gibeah;H1390 and there wentH3212 with him a bandH2428 of men, whoseH834 heartsH3820 GodH430 had touched.H5060
But the childrenH1121 of BelialH1100 said,H559 HowH4100 shall thisH2088 man saveH3467 us? And they despisedH959 him, and broughtH935 noH3808 presents.H4503 But he heldH2790 his peace.H2790
