1Samuel 10
New International Version (1984)
10Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on Saul's head and kissed him, saying, "Has not the LORD anointed you leader over his inheritance?H8050H3947H6378H8081H3332H7218H5401H559H3068H4886H5057H5159 2When you leave me today, you will meet two men near Rachel's tomb, at Zelzah on the border of Benjamin. They will say to you, 'The donkeys you set out to look for have been found. And now your father has stopped thinking about them and is worried about you. He is asking, "What shall I do about my son?"'H3212H5978H3117H4672H8147H582H7354H6900H1366H1144H6766H559H860H1980H1245H4672H1H5203H1697H860H1672H559H6213H1121 3"Then you will go on from there until you reach the great tree of Tabor. Three men going up to God at Bethel will meet you there. One will be carrying three young goats, another three loaves of bread, and another a skin of wine.H2498H1973H935H436H8396H4672H7969H582H5927H430H1008H259H5375H7969H1423H259H5375H7969H3603H3899H259H5375H5035H3196 4They will greet you and offer you two loaves of bread, which you will accept from them.H7592H7965H5414H8147H3899H3947H3027 5"After that you will go to Gibeah of God, where there is a Philistine outpost. As you approach the town, you will meet a procession of prophets coming down from the high place with lyres, tambourines, flutes and harps being played before them, and they will be prophesying.H310H935H1389H430H5333H6430H935H5892H6293H2256H5030H3381H1116H5035H8596H2485H3658H6440H5012 6The Spirit of the LORD will come upon you in power, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person.H7307H3068H6743H5012H2015H312H376 7Once these signs are fulfilled, do whatever your hand finds to do, for God is with you.H226H935H6213H4672H3027H430 8"Go down ahead of me to Gilgal. I will surely come down to you to sacrifice burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, but you must wait seven days until I come to you and tell you what you are to do."H3381H6440H1537H3381H5927H5930H2076H2077H8002H7651H3117H3176H935H3045H6213

Saul Made King

9As Saul turned to leave Samuel, God changed Saul's heart, and all these signs were fulfilled that day.H6437H7926H3212H8050H430H2015H312H3820H226H935H3117 10When they arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him; the Spirit of God came upon him in power, and he joined in their prophesying.H935H1389H2256H5030H7125H7307H430H6743H5012H8432 11When all those who had formerly known him saw him prophesying with the prophets, they asked each other, "What is this that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?"H3045H865H8032H7200H5012H5030H5971H559H376H7453H1121H7027H7586H5030 12A man who lived there answered, "And who is their father?" So it became a saying: "Is Saul also among the prophets?"H376H6030H559H1H4912H7586H5030 13After Saul stopped prophesying, he went to the high place.H3615H5012H935H1116 14Now Saul's uncle asked him and his servant, "Where have you been?" "Looking for the donkeys," he said. "But when we saw they were not to be found, we went to Samuel."H7586H1730H559H5288H575H1980H559H1245H860H7200H369H935H8050 15Saul's uncle said, "Tell me what Samuel said to you."H7586H1730H559H5046H8050H559 16Saul replied, "He assured us that the donkeys had been found." But he did not tell his uncle what Samuel had said about the kingship.H7586H559H1730H5046H5046H860H4672H1697H4410H8050H559H5046 17Samuel summoned the people of Israel to the LORD at MizpahH8050H6817H5971H3068H4709 18and said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'I brought Israel up out of Egypt, and I delivered you from the power of Egypt and all the kingdoms that oppressed you.'H559H1121H3478H559H3068H430H3478H5927H3478H4714H5337H3027H4714H3027H4467H3905 19But you have now rejected your God, who saves you out of all your calamities and distresses. And you have said, 'No, set a king over us.' So now present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes and clans."H3117H3988H430H3467H7451H6869H559H7760H4428H3320H6440H3068H7626H505 20When Samuel brought all the tribes of Israel near, the tribe of Benjamin was chosen.H8050H7626H3478H7126H7626H1144H3920 21Then he brought forward the tribe of Benjamin, clan by clan, and Matri's clan was chosen. Finally Saul son of Kish was chosen. But when they looked for him, he was not to be found.H7626H1144H7126H4940H4940H4309H3920H7586H1121H7027H3920H1245H4672 22So they inquired further of the LORD, "Has the man come here yet?" And the LORD said, "Yes, he has hidden himself among the baggage."H7592H3068H376H935H1988H3068H559H2244H3627 23They ran and brought him out, and as he stood among the people he was a head taller than any of the others.H7323H3947H3320H8432H5971H1361H5971H7926H4605 24Samuel said to all the people, "Do you see the man the LORD has chosen? There is no one like him among all the people." Then the people shouted, "Long live the king!"H8050H559H5971H7200H3068H977H5971H5971H7321H559H2421H4428 25Samuel explained to the people the regulations of the kingship. He wrote them down on a scroll and deposited it before the LORD. Then Samuel dismissed the people, each to his own home.H8050H1696H5971H4941H4410H3789H5612H3240H6440H3068H8050H7971H5971H7971H376H1004 26Saul also went to his home in Gibeah, accompanied by valiant men whose hearts God had touched.H7586H1980H1004H1390H3212H2428H3820H430H5060 27But some troublemakers said, "How can this fellow save us?" They despised him and brought him no gifts. But Saul kept silent.H1121H1100H559H3467H959H935H4503H2790
