1Samuel 10
Holman Christian Standard Bible
10Samuel took the flask of oil, poured it out on Saul's head, kissed him, and said, "Hasn't the LORD anointed you ruler over His inheritance?H8050H3947H6378H8081H3332H7218H5401H559H3068H4886H5057H5159 2Today when you leave me, you'll find two men at Rachel's Grave at Zelzah in the land of Benjamin. They will say to you, 'The donkeys you went looking for have been found, and now your father has stopped being concerned about the donkeys and is worried about you, asking: What should I do about my son?'H3212H5978H3117H4672H8147H582H7354H6900H1366H1144H6766H559H860H1980H1245H4672H1H5203H1697H860H1672H559H6213H1121 3"You will proceed from there until you come to the oak of Tabor. Three men going up to God at Bethel will meet you there, one bringing three goats, one bringing three loaves of bread, and one bringing a skin of wine.H2498H1973H935H436H8396H4672H7969H582H5927H430H1008H259H5375H7969H1423H259H5375H7969H3603H3899H259H5375H5035H3196 4They will ask how you are and give you two [loaves of] bread, which you will accept from them.H7592H7965H5414H8147H3899H3947H3027 5"After that you will come to the Hill of God where there are Philistine garrisons. When you arrive at the city, you will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place prophesying. They will be preceded by harps, tambourines, flutes, and lyres.H310H935H1389H430H5333H6430H935H5892H6293H2256H5030H3381H1116H5035H8596H2485H3658H6440H5012 6The Spirit of the LORD will control you, you will prophesy with them, and you will be transformed into a different person.H7307H3068H6743H5012H2015H312H376 7When these signs have happened to you, do whatever your circumstances require because God is with you.H226H935H6213H4672H3027H430 8Afterwards, go ahead of me to Gilgal. I will come to you to offer burnt offerings and to sacrifice fellowship offerings. Wait seven days until I come to you and show you what to do."H3381H6440H1537H3381H5927H5930H2076H2077H8002H7651H3117H3176H935H3045H6213 9When Saul turned around to leave Samuel, God changed his heart, and all the signs came about that day.H6437H7926H3212H8050H430H2015H312H3820H226H935H3117 10When Saul and his attendant arrived at Gibeah, a group of prophets met him. Then the Spirit of God took control of him, and he prophesied along with them.H935H1389H2256H5030H7125H7307H430H6743H5012H8432 11Everyone who knew him previously and saw him prophesy with the prophets asked each other, "What has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?"H3045H865H8032H7200H5012H5030H5971H559H376H7453H1121H7027H7586H5030 12Then a man who was from there asked, "And who is their father?" As a result, "Is Saul also among the prophets?" became a popular saying.H376H6030H559H1H4912H7586H5030 13Then Saul finished prophesying and went to the high place.H3615H5012H935H1116 14Saul's uncle asked him and his attendant, "Where did you go?" "To look for the donkeys," Saul answered. "When we saw they weren't there, we went to Samuel."H7586H1730H559H5288H575H1980H559H1245H860H7200H369H935H8050 15"Tell me," Saul's uncle asked, "what did Samuel say to you?"H7586H1730H559H5046H8050H559 16Saul told him, "He assured us the donkeys had been found." However, Saul did not tell him what Samuel had said about the matter of kingship.H7586H559H1730H5046H5046H860H4672H1697H4410H8050H559H5046

Saul Received as King

17Samuel summoned the people to the LORD at MizpahH8050H6817H5971H3068H4709 18and said to the Israelites, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'I brought Israel out of Egypt, and I rescued you from the power of the Egyptians and all the kingdoms that were oppressing you.'H559H1121H3478H559H3068H430H3478H5927H3478H4714H5337H3027H4714H3027H4467H3905 19But today you have rejected your God, who saves you from all your troubles and afflictions. You said to Him, 'You must set a king over us.' Now therefore present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes and clans."H3117H3988H430H3467H7451H6869H559H7760H4428H3320H6440H3068H7626H505 20Samuel had all the tribes of Israel come forward, and the tribe of Benjamin was selected.H8050H7626H3478H7126H7626H1144H3920 21Then he had the tribe of Benjamin come forward by its clans, and the Matrite clan was selected. Finally, Saul son of Kish was selected. But when they searched for him, they could not find him.H7626H1144H7126H4940H4940H4309H3920H7586H1121H7027H3920H1245H4672 22They again inquired of the LORD, "Has the man come here yet?" The LORD replied, "There he is, hidden among the supplies."H7592H3068H376H935H1988H3068H559H2244H3627 23They ran and got him from there. When he stood among the people, he stood a head taller than anyone else.H7323H3947H3320H8432H5971H1361H5971H7926H4605 24Samuel said to all the people, "Do you see the one the LORD has chosen? There is no one like him among the entire population." And all the people shouted, "Long live the king!"H8050H559H5971H7200H3068H977H5971H5971H7321H559H2421H4428 25Samuel proclaimed to the people the rights of kingship. He wrote them on a scroll, which he placed in the presence of the LORD. Then, Samuel sent all the people away, each to his home.H8050H1696H5971H4941H4410H3789H5612H3240H6440H3068H8050H7971H5971H7971H376H1004 26Saul also went to his home in Gibeah, and brave men whose hearts God had touched went with him.H7586H1980H1004H1390H3212H2428H3820H430H5060 27But some wicked men said, "How can this guy save us?" They despised him and did not bring him a gift, but Saul said nothing.H1121H1100H559H3467H959H935H4503H2790
