28:1 And it came to pass in those days [H3117] , that the Philistines [H6430] gathered [H6908] their armies [H4264] together [H6908] for warfare [H6635] , to fight [H3898] with Israel [H3478] . And Achish [H397] said [H559] unto David [H1732] , Know [H3045] thou assuredly [H3045] , that thou shalt go out [H3318] with me to battle [H4264] , thou and thy men [H582] .

28:2 And David [H1732] said [H559] to Achish [H397] , Surely [H3651] thou shalt know [H3045] what thy servant [H5650] can do [H6213] . And Achish [H397] said [H559] to David [H1732] , Therefore will I make [H7760] thee keeper [H8104] of mine head [H7218] for ever [H3117] .

28:3 Now Samuel [H8050] was dead [H4191] , and all Israel [H3478] had lamented [H5594] him, and buried [H6912] him in Ramah [H7414] , even in his own city [H5892] . And Saul [H7586] had put away [H5493] those that had familiar spirits [H178] , and the wizards [H3049] , out of the land [H776] .

28:4 And the Philistines [H6430] gathered themselves together [H6908] , and came [H935] and pitched [H2583] in Shunem [H7766] : and Saul [H7586] gathered [H6908] all Israel [H3478] together [H6908] , and they pitched [H2583] in Gilboa [H1533] .

28:5 And when Saul [H7586] saw [H7200] the host [H4264] of the Philistines [H6430] , he was afraid [H3372] , and his heart [H3820] greatly [H3966] trembled [H2729] .

28:6 And when Saul [H7586] enquired [H7592] of the LORD [H3068] , the LORD [H3068] answered [H6030] him not, neither by dreams [H2472] , nor by Urim [H224] , nor by prophets [H5030] .

28:7 Then said [H559] Saul [H7586] unto his servants [H5650] , Seek [H1245] me a woman [H802] that hath [H1172] a familiar spirit [H178] , that I may go [H3212] to her, and enquire [H1875] of her. And his servants [H5650] said [H559] to him, Behold, [there is] a woman [H802] that hath [H1172] a familiar spirit [H178] at Endor [H5874] .

28:8 And Saul [H7586] disguised [H2664] himself, and put on [H3847] other [H312] raiment [H899] , and he went [H3212] , and two [H8147] men [H582] with him, and they came [H935] to the woman [H802] by night [H3915] : and he said [H559] , I pray thee, divine [H7080] unto me by the familiar spirit [H178] , and bring me [him] up [H5927] , whom I shall name [H559] unto thee.

28:9 And the woman [H802] said [H559] unto him, Behold, thou knowest [H3045] what Saul [H7586] hath done [H6213] , how he hath cut off [H3772] those that have familiar spirits [H178] , and the wizards [H3049] , out of the land [H776] : wherefore then layest thou a snare [H5367] for my life [H5315] , to cause me to die [H4191] ?

28:10 And Saul [H7586] sware [H7650] to her by the LORD [H3068] , saying [H559] , [As] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , there shall [H518] no punishment [H5771] happen [H7136] to thee for this thing [H1697] .

28:11 Then said [H559] the woman [H802] , Whom shall I bring up [H5927] unto thee? And he said [H559] , Bring me up [H5927] Samuel [H8050] .

28:12 And when the woman [H802] saw [H7200] Samuel [H8050] , she cried [H2199] with a loud [H1419] voice [H6963] : and the woman [H802] spake [H559] to Saul [H7586] , saying [H559] , Why hast thou deceived [H7411] me? for thou [art] Saul [H7586] .

28:13 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto her, Be not afraid [H3372] : for what sawest [H7200] thou? And the woman [H802] said [H559] unto Saul [H7586] , I saw [H7200] gods [H430] ascending [H5927] out of the earth [H776] .

28:14 And he said [H559] unto her, What form [H8389] [is] he of? And she said [H559] , An old [H2205] man [H376] cometh up [H5927] ; and he [is] covered [H5844] with a mantle [H4598] . And Saul [H7586] perceived [H3045] that it [was] Samuel [H8050] , and he stooped [H6915] with [his] face [H639] to the ground [H776] , and bowed [H7812] himself.(What: Heb. What is his form?)

28:15 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] to Saul [H7586] , Why hast thou disquieted [H7264] me, to bring me up [H5927] ? And Saul [H7586] answered [H559] , I am sore [H3966] distressed [H6887] ; for the Philistines [H6430] make war [H3898] against me, and God [H430] is departed [H5493] from me, and answereth [H6030] me no more, neither by [H3027] prophets [H5030] , nor by dreams [H2472] : therefore I have called [H7121] thee, that thou mayest make known [H3045] unto me what I shall do [H6213] .(by prophets: Heb. by the hand of prophets)

28:16 Then said [H559] Samuel [H8050] , Wherefore then dost thou ask [H7592] of me, seeing the LORD [H3068] is departed [H5493] from thee, and is become thine enemy [H6145] ?

28:17 And the LORD [H3068] hath done [H6213] to him, as he spake [H1696] by me [H3027] : for the LORD [H3068] hath rent [H7167] the kingdom [H4467] out of thine hand [H3027] , and given [H5414] it to thy neighbour [H7453] , [even] to David [H1732] :(to him: or, for himself)(me: Heb. mine hand)

28:18 Because [H834] thou obeyedst [H8085] not the voice [H6963] of the LORD [H3068] , nor executedst [H6213] his fierce [H2740] wrath [H639] upon Amalek [H6002] , therefore hath the LORD [H3068] done [H6213] this thing [H1697] unto thee this day [H3117] .

28:19 Moreover the LORD [H3068] will also deliver [H5414] Israel [H3478] with thee into the hand [H3027] of the Philistines [H6430] : and to morrow [H4279] [shalt] thou and thy sons [H1121] [be] with me: the LORD [H3068] also shall deliver [H5414] the host [H4264] of Israel [H3478] into the hand [H3027] of the Philistines [H6430] .

28:20 Then Saul [H7586] fell [H5307] straightway [H4116] all [H4393] along [H6967] on the earth [H776] , and was sore [H3966] afraid [H3372] , because of the words [H1697] of Samuel [H8050] : and there was no strength [H3581] in him; for he had eaten [H398] no bread [H3899] all the day [H3117] , nor all the night [H3915] .(fell: Heb. made haste, and fell with the fulness of his stature)

28:21 And the woman [H802] came [H935] unto Saul [H7586] , and saw [H7200] that he was sore [H3966] troubled [H926] , and said [H559] unto him, Behold, thine handmaid [H8198] hath obeyed [H8085] thy voice [H6963] , and I have put [H7760] my life [H5315] in my hand [H3709] , and have hearkened [H8085] unto thy words [H1697] which thou spakest [H1696] unto me.

28:22 Now therefore, I pray thee, hearken [H8085] thou also unto the voice [H6963] of thine handmaid [H8198] , and let me set [H7760] a morsel [H6595] of bread [H3899] before [H6440] thee; and eat [H398] , that thou mayest have strength [H3581] , when thou goest [H3212] on thy way [H1870] .

28:23 But he refused [H3985] , and said [H559] , I will not eat [H398] . But his servants [H5650] , together with the woman [H802] , compelled [H6555] him; and he hearkened [H8085] unto their voice [H6963] . So he arose [H6965] from the earth [H776] , and sat [H3427] upon the bed [H4296] .

28:24 And the woman [H802] had a fat [H4770] calf [H5695] in the house [H1004] ; and she hasted [H4116] , and killed [H2076] it, and took [H3947] flour [H7058] , and kneaded [H3888] [it], and did bake [H644] unleavened bread [H4682] thereof:

28:25 And she brought [H5066] [it] before [H6440] Saul [H7586] , and before [H6440] his servants [H5650] ; and they did eat [H398] . Then they rose up [H6965] , and went away [H3212] that night [H3915] .
