1 Samuel 15:16-17

Context

15:16 Then Samuel said to Saul, “Wait a minute! 1  Let me tell you what the Lord said to me last night.” Saul 2  said to him, “Tell me.” 15:17 Samuel said, “Is it not true that when you were insignificant in your own eyes, you became head of the tribes of Israel? The Lord chose 3  you as king over Israel.

1 tn Or perhaps “be quiet.”

2 tc The translation follows the Qere and many medieval Hebrew mss in reading the singular (“he said”) rather than the plural (“they said”) of the Kethib.

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

3 tn Heb “anointed.”
