Saul seeJeeth his father's asses.

rath, the son of Aphiah, || a Benjamite, a
mighty man of || power.

2 And he had a son, whose name was
Saul, a choice young man, and a goodly :
and there was not among the children of
Israel a goodlier person than he : ''from his
shoulders and upward he was higher than
any of the people.

3 And the asses of Kish, Saul's father,
were lost. And Kish said to Saul his son,
Take now one of the servants with thee, and
arise, go seek the asses.

4 And he passed through mount Ephraim,
and passed through the land of "Shahsha,
but they found them not : then they passed
through the land of Shalim, and there they
were not : and he passed through the land of
the Benjamites, but they found them not.

5 And when they were come to the land
of Zuph, Saul said to his servant that was
with him. Come, and let us return j lest my
father leave caring for the asses, and take
thought for us.

6 And he said unto him, Behold now,
there is in this city ''a man of God, and he
is an honourable man; *all that he saith
cometh surely to pass : now let us go thither;
peradventure he can shew us our way that
we should go.

7 Then said Saul to his servant. But be-
hold, if we go, ''what shall we bring the man ?
for the bread t is spent in our vessels, and
there is not a present to bring to the man of
God: what fhave we?

8 And the servant answered Saul again,
and said, Behold, f I have here at hand the
fourth part of a shekel of silver : that will
I give to the man of God, to tell us our
way.

9 (Before time in Israel, when a man ^went
to inquire of God, thus he spake, Come, and
let us go to the seer : for he that is now called
a Prophet was beforetime called ""a Seer.)

10 Then said Saul to his servant, f Well
said ; come, let us go : so they went unto
the city where the man of God was.

11 'i^And as they went up fthe hill to the
city, 'they found young maidens going out
to draw water, and said unto them. Is the
seer here ?

12 And they answered them, and said. He
is; behold, he is before you: make haste now,
for he came to-day to the city ; for ^ there is
a II sacrifice of the people to-day 'in the
high place :

13 As soon as ye be come into the city, ye
shall straightway find him, before ye go up to
the high place to eat: for the people will not
eat until he come, because he doth bless the
sacrifice; and afterwards they eat that be

bidden. Now therefore get you
about tthis time ye shall find him.

14 And they went up into the city : and
when they were come into the city, behold,
Samuel came out against them, for to go up
to the high place.

15 1[-»Now the Lord had t told Samuel
in his ear a day before Saul came, saying,

16 To-morrow about this tinie I will send
thee a man out of the land of Benjamin,
" and thou shalt anoint him to he captain over
my people Israel, that he may save my people
out of the hand of the Philistines : for I have
° looked upon my people, because their cry
is come unto me.

17 And when Samuel saw Saul, the Lord
said unto him, p Behold the man whom I
spake to thee of! this same shall t reign over
my people.

18 Then Saul drew near to Samuel in the
gate, and said. Tell me, I pray thee, where
the seer's house is.

19 And Samuel answered Saul, and said,
I am the seer : go up before me unto the high
place ; for ye shall eat with me to-day, and
to-morrow I will let thee go, and will tell
thee all that is in thy heart.

20 And as for i thine asses that were lost
t three days ago, set not thy mind on them ;
for they are found. And on whom "^ is all
the desire of Israel ? Is it not on thee, and
on all thy father's house ?

21 And Saul answered and said, Mm not
I a Benjamite, of the 'smallest of the tribes
of Israel? and "my family the least of all the
families of the tribe of Benjamin? wherefore
then speakest thou fso to me?

22 And Samuel took Saul, and his servant,
and brought them into the parlour, and made
them sit in the chiefest place among them
that were bidden, which were about thirty
persons.

23 And Samuel said unto the cook, Bring
the portion which I gave thee, of which I
said unto thee. Set it by thee.

24 And the cook took up ^ the shoulder,
and that which was upon it, and set it before
Saul. And Samuel said. Behold that which
is II left ! set it before thee, and eat; for unto
this time hath it been kept for thee since I
said, I have invited the people. So Saul did
eat with Samuel that day.

25 If And when they were come down
from the high place into the city, Samuel
communed with Saul upon y the top of the
house.

26 And they arose early : and it came to
pass about the spring of the day that Sa-
muel called Saul to the top of the house,
saying, Up, that I may send thee away. And

Samuel anointeth Saul,

Saul arose, and they went out both of them,
he and Samuel, abroad.

27 And as they were going down to the
end of the city, Samuel said to Saul, Bid the
servant pass on before us, (and he passed on,)
but stand thou still t a while, that I may
shew thee the word of God.

CHAP. X.

1 Samuel anointeth Saul. 2 He confirmeth him hypre-
diction of three sigTis. 9 Saul's heart is changed, and
he prophesieth. 14 He concealeth the matter of the
kingdom from his uncle. 17 Saul is chosen at Mizpek
by lot. 26 The different affections of his subjects.

THEN * Samuel took a vial of oil, and
poured i^ upon his head, ''and kissed
him, and said. Is it not because "^the Lord
hath anointed thee to be captain over ''his
inheritance ?

2 When thou art departed from me to-
da3',then thou shalt find two men by * Rachel's
sepulchre in the border of Benjamin ^at Zel-
zah ; and they will say unto thee. The asses
which thou wentest to seek are found : and
lo, thy father hath left t the care of the asses,
and sorroweth for you, saying. What shall
I do for my son ?

3 Then shalt thou go on forwivard from
thence, and thou shalt come to the plain of
Tabor, and there shall meet thee three men
going up sto God to Beth-el, one carrying
three kids, and another carrying three loaves
of bread,and another carrying abottle of wine :

4 And they will t salute thee, and give thee
two loaves of bread ; which thou shalt receive
of their hands.

5 After that thou shalt come to ''the hill of
God, 'where is the garrison of the Philis-
tines : and it shall come to pass, when thou art
come thither to the city, that thou shalt meet
a company of prophets coming down ■"from
the high place with a psaltery, and a tabret,
and a pipe, and a harp before them; 'and
they shall prophesy : *'

6 And ""the Spirit of the Lord will come
upon thee, and "thou shalt prophesy with
them, and shalt be turned into another man.

7 And tlet it be, when these "signs are
come unto thee, t that thou do as occasion
serve thee ; for " God is with thee.

8 And thou shalt go down before me "ito
Gilgal ; and behold, I will come down unto
thee, to offer burnt-offerings, and to sacrifice
sacrifices of peace-offerings : "^ seven days
shalt thou tarry, till I come to thee, and shew
thee what thou shalt do.

9 H And it was so, that when he had
turned his fback to go from Samuel, God
tgave him another heart: and all those signs
came to pass that day.

10 And =when they came thither to the

260



Saul is chosen at Mizpeh by lot.

hill, behold, * a company of prophets met him ;
and "the Spirit of God came upon him, and
he prophesied among them.

11 And it came to pass when all that
knew him beforetime, saw, that, behold, he
prophesied among the prophets, then the
people said t one to another, What is this
that is come unto the son of Kish ? * /s Saul
also among the prophets ?

12 And one f of the same place answered
and said. But y who is their father ? There-
fore it became a proverb, 7s Saul also among
the prophets ?

13 And when he had made an end of pro-
phesying, he came to the high place.

14 If And Saul's uncle said unto him and
to his servant. Whither went ye ? And he
said, To seek the asses : and when we saw
that they were no where, we came to Samuel.

15 And Saul's uncle said, Tell me, I pray
thee, what Samuel said unto you.

16 And Saul said unto his uncle. He told
us plainly that the asses were found. But of
the matter of the kingdom, whereof Samuel
spake, he told him not.

17 IT And Samuel called the people toge-
ther ^unto the Lord ^to Mizpeh ;

18 And said unto the children of Israel,
'' Thus saiththe Lord God of Israel, I brought
up Israel out of Egypt, and delivered you out
of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the
hand of all kingdoms, and of them that op-
pressed you :

19 "And ye have this day rejected your
God, who himself saved you out of all your
adversities, and your tribulations ; and ye have
said unto him. Nay, but set a king over us.
Now therefore present yourselves before the
Lord by your tribes, and by your thousands.

20 And when Samuel had ^ caused all the
tribes of Israel to come near, the tribe of
Benjamin was taken.

21 When he had caused the tribe of Ben-
jamin to come near by their families, the
family of Matri was taken, and Saul the son
of Kish was taken : and when they sought
him, he could not be found.

22 Therefore they ^inquired of the Lord
further, if the man should yet come thither.
And the Lord answered. Behold, he hath hid
himself among the stuff.

23 And they ran and fetched him thence :
and when he stood among the people, ^he was
higher than any of the people from his shoul-
ders and upward.

24 And Samuel said to all the people. See
ye him swhom the Lord hath chosen, that
there is none like him among all the people ?
And all the people shouted, and said, ''t God
save the king.

1 Nahash offeretk them of Jabesh-gilead a reproachful
conditio7i. 4 They send messengers, and are delivered
by Saul. 12 Said thereby is confirmed, and his king'
dom, renewed.

THEN » Nahash the Ammonite came
up, and encamped against ''Jabesh-
gilead : and all the men of Jabesh said unto
Nahash, ' Make a covenant with us, and we
will serve thee.

2 And Nahash the Ammonite answered
them, On this condition will I make a cove-
nant with you, that I may thrust out all
your right eyes, and lay it for ^ a reproach
upon all Israel.

3 And the elders of Jabesh said unto him,
t Give us seven days' respite, that we may
send messengers unto all the coasts of Israel :
and then, if there be no man to save us, we
will come out to thee.

4 IT Then came the messengers ^to Gibeah
of Saul, and told the tidings in the ears of
the people : and ""all the people lifted up
their voices, and wept.

5 And behold, Saul came after the herd
out of the field ; and Saul said. What aileth
the people that they weep ? And they told
him the tidings of the men of Jabesh.

6 eAnd the Spirit of God came upon Saul
when he heard those tidings, and his anger
was kindled greatly.

7 And he took a yoke of oxen, and i" hewed
them in pieces, and sent them throughout all
the coasts of Israel by the hands of messen-
gers, saying, ' Whosoever cometh not forth
after Saul and after Samuel, so shall it be
done unto his oxen. And the fear of the
Lord fell on the people, and they came out
twith one consent.

8 And when he numbered them in ^Bezek,
the children 'of Israel were three hundred
thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thou-
sand.

9 And they said unto the messengers that
came. Thus shall ye say unto the men of
Jabesh-gilead, To-morrow, by that time the
sun be hot, ye shall have ||help. And the

261

messengers came and shewed it to the men of
Jabesh ; and they were glad.

10 Therefore the men of Jabesh said, To-
morrow ""we will come out unto you, and ye
shall do with us all that seemeth good unto
you.

11 And it was so on the morrow, that
"Saul put the people ° in three companies;
and they came into the midst of the host in
the morning-watch, and slew the Ammonites
until the heat of the day : and it came to
pass, that they which remained were scat-
tered, so that two of them were not left
together.

12 IT And the people said unto Samuel,
pWho is he that said. Shall Saul reign over
us ? 1 bring the men, that we may put them
to death.

13 And Saul said, 'There shall not a man
be put to death this day: for to-day nhe
Lord hath wrought salvation in Israel.

14 Then said Samuel to the people,
Come, and let us go 'to Gilgal, and renew
the kingdom there.

15 And all the people went to Gilgal; and
there they made Saul king "before the Lord
in Gilgal : and ^ there they sacrificed sacri-
fices of peace-offerings before the Lord : and
there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced
greatly.

CHAP. xn.

1 Samuel testifieth his integrity. 6 He reproveth the
people of ingratitude. 16 He terrifieth them with
thunder in harvest-time. 20 He comforteth them in
God's mercy.

AND Samuel said unto all Israel, Behold,
I have hearkened unto *your voice in all
that ye said unto me, and ""have made a king
over you.

2 And now, behold, the king "walketh
before you: "^and I am old and gray-headed;
and behold, my sons are with you : and I
have walked before you from my childhood
unto this day.

3 Behold, here I am: witness against me
before the Lord, and before ''his anointed ;
f whose ox have I taken ? or whose ass have
I taken ? or whom have I defrauded ? whom
have I oppressed ? or of whose hand have I
received any fbribe ||to ""blind mine eyes
therewith ? and I will restore it you.

4 And they said, Thou hast not defrauded
us, nor oppressed us, neither hast thou taken
aught of any man's hand.

5 And he said unto them. The Lord is
witness against you, and his anointed is wit-
ness this day, 'that yc have not found aught
''in mine hand. And they answered. He is
witness.

7 Now therefore stand still, that I may

8 "When Jacob was come into Egypt, and
your fathers "cried unto the Lord, then the

10 And they cried unto the Lord, and
said, "We have sinned, because we have for-
saken the Lord, ^and have served Baalim
and Ashtaroth: but now ^deliver us out of
the hand of our enemies, and we will serve
thee.

11 And the Lord sent ^Jerubbaal, and
Bedan, and "^Jephthah, and ''Samuel, and de-
livered you out of the hand of your enemies
on every side, and ye dwelled safe.

12 And when ye saw that <=Nahash the
king of the children of Ammon came against
you, ''ye said unto me. Nay; but a king shall
reign over us : when ®the Lord your God
was your king.

13 Now therefore, ''behold the king swhom
ye have chosen, and whom ye have desired !
and behold, ''the Lord hath set a king over

y°"- . . .,

14 If ye will 'fear the Lord, and serve
him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against
the t commandment of the Lord, then shall
both ye, and also the king that reigneth over
you, t continue following the Lord your God.

15 But if ye will ''not obey the voice of
the Lord, but rebel against the command-
ment of the Lord, then shall the hand of
the Lord be against you, 'as it was against
your fathers.

16 IT Now therefore "stand and see this
great thing, which the Lord will do before
your eyes.

17 Is it not "wheat-harvest to-day? °1
will call unto the Lord, and he shall send
thunder and rain ; that ye may perceive and
see that Pyour wickedness is great, which ye
have done in the sight of the Lord, in ask-
ing you a king.

1§ So Samuel called unto the Lord ;
and the Lord sent thunder and rain that
day: and lall the people greatly feared the
Lord and Samuel.

SauVs selected hand.

19 And all the people said unto Samuel,
'Pray for thy servants unto the Lord thy
God, that we die not: for we have added
unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king.

20 If And Samuel said unto the people,
Fear not : ye have done all this wickedness :
yet turn not aside from folloviring the Lord,
but serve the Lord with all your heart;

21 And 'turn ye not aside : *for then should
ye go after vain things, which cannot profit
nor deliver ; for they are vain.

22 For "the Lord will not forsake his
people ^ for his great name's sake : because
i'\t hath pleased the Lord to make you his
people.

23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that
I should sin against the Lord f^in ceasing
to pray for you: but "I will teach you the
■"good and the right way :

24 '^Only fear the Lord, and serve him in
truth with all your heart: for ^consider Ijhow
'great things he hath done for you.

25 But if ye shall still do wickedly, ""ye
shall be consumed, eboth ye and your king.

Philistines heard of it. And Saul blew the
trumpet throughout all the land, saying. Let

4 And all Israel heard say that Saul had

Israel also fwas had in abomination with the
