1 Samuel 10:10-12

Context
10:10 When Saul and his servant 1  arrived at Gibeah, a company of prophets was coming out to meet him. Then the spirit of God rushed upon Saul 2  and he prophesied among them. 10:11 When everyone who had known him previously saw him prophesying with the prophets, the people all asked one another, “What on earth has happened to the son of Kish? Does even Saul belong with the prophets?”

10:12 A man who was from there replied, “And who is their father?” Therefore this became a proverb: “Is even Saul among the prophets?”

1 tc Two medieval Hebrew mss, the LXX, and the Syriac Peshitta have the singular “he” (in which case the referent would be Saul alone).

tn Heb “they”; the referents (Saul and his servant) have been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn Heb “him”; the referent (Saul) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
