1Samuel 10
Amplified Bible
10THEN SAMUEL took the vial of oil and poured it on Saul's head and kissed him and said, Has not the Lord anointed you to be prince over His heritage Israel?H8050H3947H6378H8081H3332H7218H5401H559H3068H4886H5057H5159 2When you have left me today, you will meet two men by Rachel's tomb in the territory of Benjamin at Zelzah, and they will say to you, The donkeys you sought are found. And your father has quit caring about them and is anxious for you, asking, What shall I do about my son?H3212H5978H3117H4672H8147H582H7354H6900H1366H1144H6766H559H860H1980H1245H4672H1H5203H1697H860H1672H559H6213H1121 3Then you will go on from there and you will come to the oak of Tabor, and 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 bottle of wine.H2498H1973H935H436H8396H4672H7969H582H5927H430H1008H259H5375H7969H1423H259H5375H7969H3603H3899H259H5375H5035H3196 4They will greet you and give you two loaves of bread, which you shall accept from their hand.H7592H7965H5414H8147H3899H3947H3027 5After that you will come to the hill of God, where the garrison of the Philistines is; and when you come to the city, you will meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place with harp, tambourine, flute, and lyre before them, prophesying.H310H935H1389H430H5333H6430H935H5892H6293H2256H5030H3381H1116H5035H8596H2485H3658H6440H5012 6Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you will show yourself to be a prophet with them; and you will be turned into another man.H7307H3068H6743H5012H2015H312H376 7When these signs meet you, do whatever you find to be done, for God is with you.H226H935H6213H4672H3027H430 8You shall go down before me to Gilgal; and behold, I will come down to you to offer burnt offerings and to sacrifice peace offerings. You shall wait seven days until I come to you and show you what you shall do.H3381H6440H1537H3381H5927H5930H2076H2077H8002H7651H3117H3176H935H3045H6213 9And when [Saul] had turned his back to leave Samuel, God gave him another heart, and all these signs came to pass that day.H6437H7926H3212H8050H430H2015H312H3820H226H935H3117 10When they came to the hill [Gibeah], behold, a band of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came mightily upon him, and he spoke under divine inspiration among them.H935H1389H2256H5030H7125H7307H430H6743H5012H8432 11And when all who knew Saul before saw that he spoke by inspiration among the [schooled] prophets, the people said one to another, What has come over [him, who is nobody but] the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?H3045H865H8032H7200H5012H5030H5971H559H376H7453H1121H7027H7586H5030 12One from that same place answered, But who is the father of the others? So it became a proverb, Is Saul also among the prophets?H376H6030H559H1H4912H7586H5030 13When [Saul] had ended his inspired speaking, he went to the high place.H3615H5012H935H1116 14Saul's uncle said to him and to his servant, Where did you go? And Saul said, To look for the donkeys, and when we found them nowhere, we went to Samuel.H7586H1730H559H5288H575H1980H559H1245H860H7200H369H935H8050 15Saul's uncle said, Tell me, what did Samuel say to you?H7586H1730H559H5046H8050H559 16And Saul said to his uncle, He told us plainly that the donkeys were found. But of the matter of the kingdom of which Samuel spoke he told him nothing.H7586H559H1730H5046H5046H860H4672H1697H4410H8050H559H5046 17And Samuel called the people together to the Lord at MizpahH8050H6817H5971H3068H4709 18And said to the Israelites, Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: It was I Who brought up Israel out of Egypt and delivered you out of the hands of the Egyptians and of all the kingdoms that oppressed you.H559H1121H3478H559H3068H430H3478H5927H3478H4714H5337H3027H4714H3027H4467H3905 19But you have this day rejected your God, Who Himself saves you from all your calamities and distresses; and you have said to Him, No! Set a king over us. So now present yourselves before the Lord by your tribes and by your thousands.H3117H3988H430H3467H7451H6869H559H7760H4428H3320H6440H3068H7626H505 20And when Samuel had caused all the tribes of Israel to come near, the tribe of Benjamin was taken [probably by lot].H8050H7626H3478H7126H7626H1144H3920 21When he had caused the tribe of Benjamin to come near by their families, the family of Matri was taken. And Saul son of Kish was taken. But when they looked for him, he could not be found.H7626H1144H7126H4940H4940H4309H3920H7586H1121H7027H3920H1245H4672 22Therefore they inquired of the Lord further, if the man would yet come back. And the Lord answered, Behold, he has hidden himself among the baggage.H7592H3068H376H935H1988H3068H559H2244H3627 23They ran and brought him from there. And when he stood among the people, he was a head taller than any of them.H7323H3947H3320H8432H5971H1361H5971H7926H4605 24And Samuel said to all the people, Do you see him whom the Lord has chosen, that none like him is among all the people? And all the people shouted and said, Long live the king!H8050H559H5971H7200H3068H977H5971H5971H7321H559H2421H4428 25Then Samuel told the people the manner of the kingdom [defining the position of the king in relation to God and to the people], and wrote it in a book and laid it up before the Lord. And Samuel sent all the people away, each one to his home.H8050H1696H5971H4941H4410H3789H5612H3240H6440H3068H8050H7971H5971H7971H376H1004 26Saul also went home to Gibeah; and there went with him a band of valiant men whose hearts God had touched.H7586H1980H1004H1390H3212H2428H3820H430H5060 27But some worthless fellows said, How can this man save us? And they despised him and brought him no gift. But he held his peace {and} was as if deaf.H1121H1100H559H3467H959H935H4503H2790
