1Samuel 10
New Revised Standard Version
10Samuel took a vial of oil and poured it on his head, and kissed him; he said, "The LORD has anointed you ruler over his people Israel. You shall reign over the people of the LORD and you will save them from the hand of their enemies all around. Now this shall be the sign to you that the LORD has anointed you ruler over his heritage:H8050H3947H6378H8081H3332H7218H5401H559H3068H4886H5057H5159 2When you depart from me today you will meet two men by Rachel's tomb in the territory of Benjamin at Zelzah; they will say to you, 'The donkeys that you went to seek are found, and now your father has stopped worrying about them and is worrying about you, saying: What shall I do about my son?'H3212H5978H3117H4672H8147H582H7354H6900H1366H1144H6766H559H860H1980H1245H4672H1H5203H1697H860H1672H559H6213H1121 3Then you shall go on from there further and come to the oak of Tabor; three men going up to God at Bethel will meet you there, one carrying three kids, another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a skin of wine.H2498H1973H935H436H8396H4672H7969H582H5927H430H1008H259H5375H7969H1423H259H5375H7969H3603H3899H259H5375H5035H3196 4They will greet you and give you two loaves of bread, which you shall accept from them.H7592H7965H5414H8147H3899H3947H3027 5After that you shall come to Gibeath-elohim, at the place where the Philistine garrison is; there, as you come to the town, you will meet a band of prophets coming down from the shrine with harp, tambourine, flute, and lyre playing in front of them; they will be in a prophetic frenzy.H310H935H1389H430H5333H6430H935H5892H6293H2256H5030H3381H1116H5035H8596H2485H3658H6440H5012 6Then the spirit of the LORD will possess you, and you will be in a prophetic frenzy along with them and be turned into a different person.H7307H3068H6743H5012H2015H312H376 7Now when these signs meet you, do whatever you see fit to do, for God is with you.H226H935H6213H4672H3027H430 8And you shall go down to Gilgal ahead of me; then I will come down to you to present burnt offerings and offer sacrifices of well-being. Seven days you shall wait, until I come to you and show you what you shall do."H3381H6440H1537H3381H5927H5930H2076H2077H8002H7651H3117H3176H935H3045H6213

Saul Prophesies

9As he turned away to leave Samuel, God gave him another heart; and all these signs were fulfilled that day.H6437H7926H3212H8050H430H2015H312H3820H226H935H3117 10When they were going from there to Gibeah, a band of prophets met him; and the spirit of God possessed him, and he fell into a prophetic frenzy along with them.H935H1389H2256H5030H7125H7307H430H6743H5012H8432 11When all who knew him before saw how he prophesied with the prophets, the people said to one another, "What has come over the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?"H3045H865H8032H7200H5012H5030H5971H559H376H7453H1121H7027H7586H5030 12A man of the place answered, "And who is their father?" Therefore it became a proverb, "Is Saul also among the prophets?"H376H6030H559H1H4912H7586H5030 13When his prophetic frenzy had ended, he went home.H3615H5012H935H1116 14Saul's uncle said to him and to the boy, "Where did you go?" And he replied, "To seek the donkeys; and 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 said to his uncle, "He told us that the donkeys had been found." But about the matter of the kingship, of which Samuel had spoken, he did not tell him anything.H7586H559H1730H5046H5046H860H4672H1697H4410H8050H559H5046

Saul Proclaimed King

17Samuel summoned the people to the LORD at MizpahH8050H6817H5971H3068H4709 18and said to them, "Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, 'I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and I rescued you from the hand of the Egyptians and from the hand of all the kingdoms that were oppressing you.'H559H1121H3478H559H3068H430H3478H5927H3478H4714H5337H3027H4714H3027H4467H3905 19But today you have rejected your God, who saves you from all your calamities and your distresses; and you have said, 'No! but set a king over us.' Now therefore present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes and by your clans."H3117H3988H430H3467H7451H6869H559H7760H4428H3320H6440H3068H7626H505 20Then Samuel brought all the tribes of Israel near, and the tribe of Benjamin was taken by lot.H8050H7626H3478H7126H7626H1144H3920 21He brought the tribe of Benjamin near by its families, and the family of the Matrites was taken by lot. Finally he brought the family of the Matrites near man by man, and Saul the son of Kish was taken by lot. But when they sought him, he could not be found.H7626H1144H7126H4940H4940H4309H3920H7586H1121H7027H3920H1245H4672 22So they inquired again of the LORD, "Did the man come here?" and the LORD said, "See, he has hidden himself among the baggage."H7592H3068H376H935H1988H3068H559H2244H3627 23Then they ran and brought him from there. When he took his stand among the people, he was head and shoulders taller than any of them.H7323H3947H3320H8432H5971H1361H5971H7926H4605 24Samuel said to all the people, "Do you see the one whom the LORD has chosen? There is no one like him among all the people." And all the people shouted, "Long live the king!"H8050H559H5971H7200H3068H977H5971H5971H7321H559H2421H4428 25Samuel told the people the rights and duties of the kingship; and he wrote them in a book and laid it up before the LORD. Then Samuel sent all the people back to their homes.H8050H1696H5971H4941H4410H3789H5612H3240H6440H3068H8050H7971H5971H7971H376H1004 26Saul also went to his home at Gibeah, and with him went warriors whose hearts God had touched.H7586H1980H1004H1390H3212H2428H3820H430H5060 27But some worthless fellows said, "How can this man save us?" They despised him and brought him no present. But he held his peace. Now Nahash, king of the Ammonites, had been grievously oppressing the Gadites and the Reubenites. He would gouge out the right eye of each of them and would not grant Israel a deliverer. No one was left of the Israelites across the Jordan whose right eye Nahash, king of the Ammonites, had not gouged out. But there were seven thousand men who had escaped from the Ammonites and had entered Jabesh-gilead.H1121H1100H559H3467H959H935H4503H2790
