10:1 Then Samuel [H8050] took [H3947] a vial [H6378] of oil [H8081] , and poured [H3332] [it] upon his head [H7218] , and kissed [H5401] him, and said [H559] , [Is it] not because the LORD [H3068] hath anointed [H4886] thee [to be] captain [H5057] over his inheritance [H5159] ?
10:2 When thou art departed [H3212] from me [H5978] to day [H3117] , then thou shalt find [H4672] two [H8147] men [H582] by Rachel's [H7354] sepulchre [H6900] in the border [H1366] of Benjamin [H1144] at Zelzah [H6766] ; and they will say [H559] unto thee, The asses [H860] which thou wentest [H1980] to seek [H1245] are found [H4672] : and, lo, thy father [H1] hath left [H5203] the care [H1697] of the asses [H860] , and sorroweth [H1672] for you, saying [H559] , What shall I do [H6213] for my son [H1121] ?(care: Heb. business)
10:3 Then shalt thou go on [H2498] forward [H1973] from thence, and thou shalt come [H935] to the plain [H436] of Tabor [H8396] , and there shall meet [H4672] thee three [H7969] men [H582] going up [H5927] to God [H430] to Bethel [H1008] , one [H259] carrying [H5375] three [H7969] kids [H1423] , and another [H259] carrying [H5375] three [H7969] loaves [H3603] of bread [H3899] , and another [H259] carrying [H5375] a bottle [H5035] of wine [H3196] :
10:4 And they will [H7592] salute [H7965] thee, and give [H5414] thee two [H8147] [loaves] of bread [H3899] ; which thou shalt receive [H3947] of their hands [H3027] .(salute: Heb. ask thee of peace)
10:5 After [H310] that thou shalt come [H935] to the hill [H1389] of God [H430] , where [is] the garrison [H5333] of the Philistines [H6430] : and it shall come to pass, when thou art come thither [H935] to the city [H5892] , that thou shalt meet [H6293] a company [H2256] of prophets [H5030] coming down [H3381] from the high place [H1116] with a psaltery [H5035] , and a tabret [H8596] , and a pipe [H2485] , and a harp [H3658] , before [H6440] them; and they shall prophesy [H5012] :
10:6 And the Spirit [H7307] of the LORD [H3068] will come [H6743] upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy [H5012] with them, and shalt be turned [H2015] into another [H312] man [H376] .
10:7 And let it be, when these signs [H226] are come [H935] unto thee, [that] thou do [H6213] as occasion [H4672] serve [H3027] thee; for God [H430] [is] with thee.(And: Heb. And it shall come to pass, that when these signs, etc)(that: Heb. do for thee as thine hand shall find)
10:8 And thou shalt go down [H3381] before [H6440] me to Gilgal [H1537] ; and, behold, I will come down [H3381] unto thee, to offer [H5927] burnt offerings [H5930] , [and] to sacrifice [H2076] sacrifices [H2077] of peace offerings [H8002] : seven [H7651] days [H3117] shalt thou tarry [H3176] , till I come [H935] to thee, and shew [H3045] thee what thou shalt do [H6213] .
10:9 And it was [so], that when he had turned [H6437] his back [H7926] to go [H3212] from Samuel [H8050] , God [H430] gave [H2015] him another [H312] heart [H3820] : and all those signs [H226] came [H935] to pass that day [H3117] .(back: Heb. shoulder)(gave: Heb. turned)
10:10 And when they came [H935] thither to the hill [H1389] , behold, a company [H2256] of prophets [H5030] met [H7125] him; and the Spirit [H7307] of God [H430] came [H6743] upon him, and he prophesied [H5012] among [H8432] them.
10:11 And it came to pass, when all that knew [H3045] him beforetime [H865] [H8032] saw [H7200] that, behold, he prophesied [H5012] among the prophets [H5030] , then the people [H5971] said [H559] one [H376] to another [H7453] , What [is] this [that] is come unto the son [H1121] of Kish [H7027] ? [Is] Saul [H7586] also among the prophets [H5030] ?(one: Heb. a man to his neighbour)
10:12 And one [H376] of the same place answered [H6030] and said [H559] , But who [is] their father [H1] ? Therefore it became a proverb [H4912] , [Is] Saul [H7586] also among the prophets [H5030] ?(of: Heb. from thence)
10:13 And when he had made an end [H3615] of prophesying [H5012] , he came [H935] to the high place [H1116] .
10:14 And Saul's [H7586] uncle [H1730] said [H559] unto him and to his servant [H5288] , Whither [H575] went [H1980] ye? And he said [H559] , To seek [H1245] the asses [H860] : and when we saw [H7200] that [they were] no where [H369] , we came [H935] to Samuel [H8050] .
10:15 And Saul's [H7586] uncle [H1730] said [H559] , Tell [H5046] me, I pray thee, what Samuel [H8050] said [H559] unto you.
10:16 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto his uncle [H1730] , He told [H5046] us plainly [H5046] that the asses [H860] were found [H4672] . But of the matter [H1697] of the kingdom [H4410] , whereof Samuel [H8050] spake [H559] , he told [H5046] him not.
10:17 And Samuel [H8050] called [H6817] the people [H5971] together unto the LORD [H3068] to Mizpeh [H4709] ;
10:18 And said [H559] unto the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , I brought up [H5927] Israel [H3478] out of Egypt [H4714] , and delivered [H5337] you out of the hand [H3027] of the Egyptians [H4714] , and out of the hand [H3027] of all kingdoms [H4467] , [and] of them that oppressed [H3905] you:
10:19 And ye have this day [H3117] rejected [H3988] your God [H430] , who himself saved [H3467] you out of all your adversities [H7451] and your tribulations [H6869] ; and ye have said [H559] unto him, [Nay], but set [H7760] a king [H4428] over us. Now therefore present [H3320] yourselves before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] by your tribes [H7626] , and by your thousands [H505] .
10:20 And when Samuel [H8050] had caused all the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] to come near [H7126] , the tribe [H7626] of Benjamin [H1144] was taken [H3920] .
10:21 When he had caused the tribe [H7626] of Benjamin [H1144] to come near [H7126] by their families [H4940] , the family [H4940] of Matri [H4309] was taken [H3920] , and Saul [H7586] the son [H1121] of Kish [H7027] was taken [H3920] : and when they sought [H1245] him, he could not be found [H4672] .
10:22 Therefore they enquired [H7592] of the LORD [H3068] further, if the man [H376] should yet come [H935] thither [H1988] . And the LORD [H3068] answered [H559] , Behold, he hath hid [H2244] himself among the stuff [H3627] .
10:23 And they ran [H7323] and fetched [H3947] him thence: and when he stood [H3320] among [H8432] the people [H5971] , he was higher [H1361] than any of the people [H5971] from his shoulders [H7926] and upward [H4605] .
10:24 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] to all the people [H5971] , See [H7200] ye him whom the LORD [H3068] hath chosen [H977] , that [there is] none like him among all the people [H5971] ? And all the people [H5971] shouted [H7321] , and said [H559] , God save [H2421] the king [H4428] .(God: Heb. Let the king live)
10:25 Then Samuel [H8050] told [H1696] the people [H5971] the manner [H4941] of the kingdom [H4410] , and wrote [H3789] [it] in a book [H5612] , and laid [it] up [H3240] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] . And Samuel [H8050] sent [H7971] all the people [H5971] away [H7971] , every man [H376] to his house [H1004] .
10:26 And Saul [H7586] also went [H1980] home [H1004] to Gibeah [H1390] ; and there went [H3212] with him a band of men [H2428] , whose hearts [H3820] God [H430] had touched [H5060] .
10:27 But the children [H1121] of Belial [H1100] said [H559] , How shall this man save [H3467] us? And they despised [H959] him, and brought [H935] him no presents [H4503] . But he held his peace [H2790] .(held: or, was as though he had been deaf)
