And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to Samuel,H8050 HowH5704 longH5704 will you mournH56 for Saul,H7586 seeing I have rejectedH3988 him from reigningH4427 overH5921 Israel?H3478 fillH4390 your hornH7161 with oil,H8081 and go,H3212 I will sendH7971 you to JesseH3448 the Bethlehemite:H1022 for I have providedH7200 me a kingH4428 among his sons.H1121
And SamuelH8050 said,H559 HowH349 can I go?H3212 if SaulH7586 hearH8085 it, he will killH2026 me. And the LORDH3068 said,H559 TakeH3947 an heiferH5697 with you, and say,H559 I am comeH935 to sacrificeH2076 to the LORD.H3068
And callH7121 JesseH3448 to the sacrifice,H2077 and I will showH3045 you whatH853 H834 you shall do:H6213 and you shall anointH4886 to me him whomH834 I nameH559 to you.
And SamuelH8050 didH6213 that whichH834 the LORDH3068 spoke,H1696 and cameH935 to Bethlehem.H1035 And the eldersH2205 of the townH7023 trembledH2729 at his coming,H7122 and said,H559 ComeH935 you peaceably?H7965
And he said,H559 Peaceably:H7965 I am comeH935 to sacrificeH2076 to the LORD:H3068 sanctifyH6942 yourselves, and comeH935 with me to the sacrifice.H2077 And he sanctifiedH6942 JesseH3448 and his sons,H1121 and calledH7121 them to the sacrifice.H2077
And it cameH1961 to pass, when they were come,H935 that he lookedH7200 on Eliab,H446 and said,H559 SurelyH389 the LORD'sH3068 anointedH4899 is beforeH5048 him.
But the LORDH3068 saidH559 to Samuel,H8050 LookH5027 not onH413 his countenance,H4758 or on the heightH1364 of his stature;H6967 becauseH3588 I have refusedH3988 him: for the LORDH3068 sees not as manH120 sees;H7200 for manH120 looksH7200 on the outwardH5869 appearance,H5869 but the LORDH3068 looksH7200 on the heart.H3824
Then JesseH3448 calledH7121 Abinadab,H41 and made him passH5674 beforeH6440 Samuel.H8050 And he said,H559 NeitherH1571 H3808 has the LORDH3068 chosenH977 this.H2088
Then JesseH3448 made ShammahH8048 to passH5674 by. And he said,H559 NeitherH1571 H3808 has the LORDH3068 chosenH977 this.H2088
Again, JesseH3448 made sevenH7651 of his sonsH1121 to passH5674 beforeH6440 Samuel.H8050 And SamuelH8050 saidH559 to Jesse,H3448 The LORDH3068 has not chosenH977 these.H428
And SamuelH8050 saidH559 to Jesse,H3448 Are hereH8552 allH8552 your children?H5288 And he said,H559 There remainsH7604 yetH5750 the youngest,H3996 and, behold,H2009 he keepsH7462 the sheep.H6629 And SamuelH8050 saidH559 to Jesse,H3448 SendH7971 and fetchH3947 him: for we will not sitH5437 down tillH5704 he comeH935 here.H6311
And he sent,H7971 and broughtH935 him in. Now he was ruddy,H132 and withH5973 of a beautifulH3303 countenance,H5869 and goodlyH2896 to lookH7210 to. And the LORDH3068 said,H559 Arise,H6965 anointH4886 him: for thisH2088 is he.
Then SamuelH8050 tookH3947 the hornH7161 of oil,H8081 and anointedH4886 him in the middleH7130 of his brothers:H251 and the SpiritH7307 of the LORDH3068 cameH6743 on DavidH1732 from that dayH3117 forward.H4605 So SamuelH8050 roseH6965 up, and wentH3212 to Ramah.H7414
But the SpiritH7307 of the LORDH3068 departedH5493 from Saul,H7586 and an evilH7451 spiritH7307 from the LORDH3068 troubledH1204 him.
And Saul'sH7586 servantsH5650 saidH559 to him, BeholdH2009 now,H4994 an evilH7451 spiritH7307 from GodH430 troublesH1204 you.
Let our lordH113 nowH4994 commandH559 your servants,H5650 which are beforeH6440 you, to seekH1245 out a man,H376 who is a cunningH3045 playerH5059 on an harp:H3658 and it shall comeH1961 to pass, when the evilH7451 spiritH7307 from GodH430 is on you, that he shall playH5059 with his hand,H3027 and you shall be well.H2895
And SaulH7586 saidH559 to his servants,H5650 ProvideH7200 me nowH4994 a manH376 that can playH5059 well,H3190 and bringH935 him to me.
Then answeredH6030 oneH259 of the servants,H5288 and said,H559 Behold,H2009 I have seenH7200 a sonH1121 of JesseH3448 the Bethlehemite,H1022 that is cunningH3045 in playing,H5059 and a mightyH1368 valiantH2428 man,H376 and a manH376 of war,H4421 and prudentH995 in matters,H1697 and a comelyH8389 person,H376 and the LORDH3068 is with him.
Why SaulH7586 sentH7971 messengersH4397 to Jesse,H3448 and said,H559 SendH7971 me DavidH1732 your son,H1121 whichH834 is with the sheep.H6629
And JesseH3448 tookH3947 an assH2543 ladenH5375 with bread,H3899 and a bottleH4997 of wine,H3196 and a kid,H1423 H5795 and sentH7971 them by DavidH1732 his sonH1121 to Saul.H7586
And DavidH1732 cameH935 to Saul,H7586 and stoodH5975 beforeH6440 him: and he lovedH157 him greatly;H3966 and he becameH1961 his armor bearer.H5375 H3627
And SaulH7586 sentH7971 to Jesse,H3448 saying,H559 Let David,H1732 I prayH4994 you, standH5975 beforeH6440 me; for he has foundH4672 favorH2580 in my sight.H5869
And it cameH1961 to pass, when the evilH7451 spiritH7307 from GodH430 was on Saul,H7586 that DavidH1732 tookH3947 an harp,H3658 and playedH5059 with his hand:H3027 so SaulH7586 was refreshed,H7304 and was well,H2895 and the evilH7451 spiritH7307 departedH5493 from him.
