15:1 Samuel [H8050] also said [H559] unto Saul [H7586] , The LORD [H3068] sent [H7971] me to anoint [H4886] thee [to be] king [H4428] over his people [H5971] , over Israel [H3478] : now therefore hearken [H8085] thou unto the voice [H6963] of the words [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] .

15:2 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , I remember [H6485] [that] which Amalek [H6002] did [H6213] to Israel [H3478] , how he laid [H7760] [wait] for him in the way [H1870] , when he came up [H5927] from Egypt [H4714] .

15:3 Now go [H3212] and smite [H5221] Amalek [H6002] , and utterly destroy [H2763] all that they have, and spare [H2550] them not; but slay [H4191] both man [H376] and woman [H802] , infant [H5768] and suckling [H3243] , ox [H7794] and sheep [H7716] , camel [H1581] and ass [H2543] .

15:4 And Saul [H7586] gathered [H8085] the people [H5971] together [H8085] , and numbered [H6485] them in Telaim [H2923] , two hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] footmen [H7273] , and ten [H6235] thousand [H505] men [H376] of Judah [H3063] .

15:5 And Saul [H7586] came [H935] to a city [H5892] of Amalek [H6002] , and laid wait [H7378] [H693] in the valley [H5158] .(laid: or, fought)

15:6 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto the Kenites [H7017] , Go [H3212] , depart [H5493] , get you down [H3381] from among [H8432] the Amalekites [H6002] , lest I destroy [H622] you with them: for ye shewed [H6213] kindness [H2617] to all the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , when they came up [H5927] out of Egypt [H4714] . So the Kenites [H7017] departed [H5493] from among [H8432] the Amalekites [H6003] .

15:7 And Saul [H7586] smote [H5221] the Amalekites [H6002] from Havilah [H2341] [until] thou comest [H935] to Shur [H7793] , that [is] over against [H6440] Egypt [H4714] .

15:8 And he took [H8610] Agag [H90] the king [H4428] of the Amalekites [H6002] alive [H2416] , and utterly destroyed [H2763] all the people [H5971] with the edge [H6310] of the sword [H2719] .

15:9 But Saul [H7586] and the people [H5971] spared [H2550] Agag [H90] , and the best [H4315] of the sheep [H6629] , and of the oxen [H1241] , and of the fatlings [H4932] , and the lambs [H3733] , and all [that was] good [H2896] , and would [H14] not utterly destroy [H2763] them: but every thing [H4399] [that was] vile [H5240] and refuse [H4549] , that they destroyed utterly [H2763] .(fatlings: or, second sort)

15:10 Then came the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] unto Samuel [H8050] , saying [H559] ,

15:11 It repenteth [H5162] me that I have set up [H4427] Saul [H7586] [to be] king [H4428] : for he is turned back [H7725] from following [H310] me, and hath not performed [H6965] my commandments [H1697] . And it grieved [H2734] Samuel [H8050] ; and he cried [H2199] unto the LORD [H3068] all night [H3915] .

15:12 And when Samuel [H8050] rose early [H7925] to meet [H7125] Saul [H7586] in the morning [H1242] , it was told [H5046] Samuel [H8050] , saying [H559] , Saul [H7586] came [H935] to Carmel [H3760] , and, behold, he set him up [H5324] a place [H3027] , and is gone about [H5437] , and passed on [H5674] , and gone down [H3381] to Gilgal [H1537] .

15:13 And Samuel [H8050] came [H935] to Saul [H7586] : and Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto him, Blessed [H1288] [be] thou of the LORD [H3068] : I have performed [H6965] the commandment [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] .

15:14 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] , What [meaneth] then this bleating [H6963] of the sheep [H6629] in mine ears [H241] , and the lowing [H6963] of the oxen [H1241] which I hear [H8085] ?

15:15 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , They have brought [H935] them from the Amalekites [H6003] : for the people [H5971] spared [H2550] the best [H4315] of the sheep [H6629] and of the oxen [H1241] , to sacrifice [H2076] unto the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] ; and the rest [H3498] we have utterly destroyed [H2763] .

15:16 Then Samuel [H8050] said [H559] unto Saul [H7586] , Stay [H7503] , and I will tell [H5046] thee what the LORD [H3068] hath said [H1696] to me this night [H3915] . And he said [H559] unto him, Say on [H1696] .

15:17 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] , When thou [wast] little [H6996] in thine own sight [H5869] , [wast] thou not [made] the head [H7218] of the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] , and the LORD [H3068] anointed [H4886] thee king [H4428] over Israel [H3478] ?

15:18 And the LORD [H3068] sent [H7971] thee on a journey [H1870] , and said [H559] , Go [H3212] and utterly destroy [H2763] the sinners [H2400] the Amalekites [H6002] , and fight [H3898] against them until they be consumed [H3615] .(they: Heb. they consume them)

15:19 Wherefore then didst thou not obey [H8085] the voice [H6963] of the LORD [H3068] , but didst fly [H5860] upon the spoil [H7998] , and didst [H6213] evil [H7451] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] ?

15:20 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto Samuel [H8050] , Yea, I have obeyed [H8085] the voice [H6963] of the LORD [H3068] , and have gone [H3212] the way [H1870] which the LORD [H3068] sent [H7971] me, and have brought [H935] Agag [H90] the king [H4428] of Amalek [H6002] , and have utterly destroyed [H2763] the Amalekites [H6002] .

15:21 But the people [H5971] took [H3947] of the spoil [H7998] , sheep [H6629] and oxen [H1241] , the chief [H7225] of the things which should have been utterly destroyed [H2764] , to sacrifice [H2076] unto the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] in Gilgal [H1537] .

15:22 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] , Hath the LORD [H3068] [as great] delight [H2656] in burnt offerings [H5930] and sacrifices [H2077] , as in obeying [H8085] the voice [H6963] of the LORD [H3068] ? Behold, to obey [H8085] [is] better [H2896] than sacrifice [H2077] , [and] to hearken [H7181] than the fat [H2459] of rams [H352] .

15:23 For rebellion [H4805] [is as] the sin [H2403] of witchcraft [H7081] , and stubbornness [H6484] [is as] iniquity [H205] and idolatry [H8655] . Because thou hast rejected [H3988] the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] , he hath also rejected [H3988] thee from [being] king [H4428] .(witchcraft: Heb. divination)

15:24 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto Samuel [H8050] , I have sinned [H2398] : for I have transgressed [H5674] the commandment [H6310] of the LORD [H3068] , and thy words [H1697] : because I feared [H3372] the people [H5971] , and obeyed [H8085] their voice [H6963] .

15:25 Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon [H5375] my sin [H2403] , and turn again [H7725] with me, that I may worship [H7812] the LORD [H3068] .

15:26 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] unto Saul [H7586] , I will not return [H7725] with thee: for thou hast rejected [H3988] the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] , and the LORD [H3068] hath rejected [H3988] thee from being king [H4428] over Israel [H3478] .

15:27 And as Samuel [H8050] turned about [H5437] to go away [H3212] , he laid hold [H2388] upon the skirt [H3671] of his mantle [H4598] , and it rent [H7167] .

15:28 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] unto him, The LORD [H3068] hath rent [H7167] the kingdom [H4468] of Israel [H3478] from thee this day [H3117] , and hath given [H5414] it to a neighbour [H7453] of thine, [that is] better [H2896] than thou.

15:29 And also the Strength [H5331] of Israel [H3478] will not lie [H8266] nor repent [H5162] : for he [is] not a man [H120] , that he should repent [H5162] .(Strength: or, Eternity, or, Victory)

15:30 Then he said [H559] , I have sinned [H2398] : [yet] honour [H3513] me now, I pray thee, before the elders [H2205] of my people [H5971] , and before Israel [H3478] , and turn again [H7725] with me, that I may worship [H7812] the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] .

15:31 So Samuel [H8050] turned again [H7725] after [H310] Saul [H7586] ; and Saul [H7586] worshipped [H7812] the LORD [H3068] .

15:32 Then said [H559] Samuel [H8050] , Bring ye hither [H5066] to me Agag [H90] the king [H4428] of the Amalekites [H6002] . And Agag [H90] came [H3212] unto him delicately [H4574] . And Agag [H90] said [H559] , Surely [H403] the bitterness [H4751] of death [H4194] is past [H5493] .

15:33 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] , As thy sword [H2719] hath made women [H802] childless [H7921] , so shall thy mother [H517] be childless [H7921] among women [H802] . And Samuel [H8050] hewed [H8158] Agag [H90] in pieces [H8158] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] in Gilgal [H1537] .

15:34 Then Samuel [H8050] went [H3212] to Ramah [H7414] ; and Saul [H7586] went up [H5927] to his house [H1004] to Gibeah [H1390] of Saul [H7586] .

15:35 And Samuel [H8050] came no more [H3254] to see [H7200] Saul [H7586] until the day [H3117] of his death [H4194] : nevertheless [H3588] Samuel [H8050] mourned [H56] for Saul [H7586] : and the LORD [H3068] repented [H5162] that he had made Saul [H7586] king [H4427] over Israel [H3478] .
