1 Samuel 9:24-27


9:24 So the cook picked up the leg and brought it and set it in front of Saul. Samuel 1  said, “What was kept is now set before you! Eat, for it has been kept for you for this meeting time, from the time I said, ‘I have invited the people.’” So Saul ate with Samuel that day.

9:25 When they came down from the high place to the town, Samuel spoke with Saul on the roof. 9:26 They got up at dawn and Samuel called to Saul on the roof, “Get up, so I can send you on your way.” So Saul got up and the two of them – he and Samuel – went outside. 9:27 While they were going down to the edge of town, Samuel said to Saul, “Tell the servant to go on ahead of us.” So he did. 2  Samuel then said, 3  “You remain here awhile, so I can inform you of God’s message.”

1 tn Heb “he” (also in v. 25); the referent (Samuel) has been specified in both places in the translation for clarity.

2 tc This statement is absent in the LXX (with the exception of Origen), an Old Latin ms, and the Syriac Peshitta.

3 tn The words “Samuel then said” are supplied in the translation for clarification and for stylistic reasons.
