1 Samuel 15:10-14

Context

15:10 Then the word of the Lord came to Samuel: 15:11 “I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned away from me and has not done what I told him to do.” Samuel became angry and he cried out to the Lord all that night.

15:12 Then Samuel got up early to meet Saul the next morning. But Samuel was informed, “Saul has gone to Carmel where 1  he is setting up a monument for himself. Then Samuel left 2  and went down to Gilgal.” 3  15:13 When Samuel came to him, 4  Saul said to him, “May the Lord bless you! I have done what the Lord said.”

15:14 Samuel replied, “If that is the case, 5  then what is this sound of sheep in my ears and the sound of cattle that I hear?”

1 tn Heb “and look.”

2 tn Heb “and he turned and crossed over.”

4 tn Heb “to Saul.”
