1 Samuel 9:1-27

Now there was a man
<0376>
of Benjamin
<01144>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Kish
<07027>_,
the son
<01121>
of Abiel
<022>_,
the son
<01121>
of Zeror
<06872>_,
the son
<01121>
of Bechorath
<01064>_,
the son
<01121>
of Aphiah
<0647>_,
a Benjamite
<01145>_,
a mighty
<01368>
man
<0376>
of power
<02428>_.
{a Benjamite: or, the son of a man of Jemini} {power: or, substance}
And he had a son
<01121>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Saul
<07586>_,
a choice young man
<0970>_,
and a goodly
<02896>_:
and [there was] not among the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
a goodlier
<02896>
person
<0376>
than he: from his shoulders
<07926>
and upward
<04605>
[he was] higher
<01364>
than any of the people
<05971>_.
And the asses
<0860>
of Kish
<07027>
Saul's
<07586>
father
<01>
were lost
<06> (8799)_.
And Kish
<07027>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Saul
<07586>
his son
<01121>_,
Take
<03947> (8798)
now one
<0259>
of the servants
<05288>
with thee, and arise
<06965> (8798)_,
go
<03212> (8798)
seek
<01245> (8761)
the asses
<0860>_.
And he passed through
<05674> (8799)
mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>_,
and passed through
<05674> (8799)
the land
<0776>
of Shalisha
<08031>_,
but they found
<04672> (8804)
[them] not: then they passed through
<05674> (8799)
the land
<0776>
of Shalim
<08171>_,
and [there they were] not: and he passed through
<05674> (8799)
the land
<0776>
of the Benjamites
<01145>_,
but they found
<04672> (8804)
[them] not.
[And] when they were come
<0935> (8804)
to the land
<0776>
of Zuph
<06689>_,
Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8804)
to his servant
<05288>
that [was] with him, Come
<03212> (8798)_,
and let us return
<07725> (8799)_;
lest my father
<01>
leave
<02308> (8799)
[caring] for the asses
<0860>_,
and take thought
<01672> (8804)
for us.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Behold now, [there is] in this city
<05892>
a man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
and [he is] an honourable
<03513> (8737)
man
<0376>_;
all that he saith
<01696> (8762)
cometh
<0935> (8799)
surely to pass
<0935> (8800)_:
now let us go
<03212> (8799)
thither; peradventure he can shew
<05046> (8686)
us our way
<01870>
that we should go
<01980> (8804)_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Saul
<07586>
to his servant
<05288>_,
But, behold, [if] we go
<03212> (8799)_,
what shall we bring
<0935> (8686)
the man
<0376>_?
for the bread
<03899>
is spent
<0235> (8804)
in our vessels
<03627>_,
and [there is] not a present
<08670>
to bring
<0935> (8687)
to the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_:
what have we? {is spent...: Heb. is gone out of, etc} {have we: Heb. is with us?}
And the servant
<05288>
answered
<06030> (8800)
Saul
<07586>
again
<03254> (8686)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, I have
<04672> (8738)
here at hand
<03027>
the fourth part
<07253>
of a shekel
<08255>
of silver
<03701>_:
[that] will I give
<05414> (8804)
to the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
to tell
<05046> (8689)
us our way
<01870>_.
{I have...: Heb. there is found in my hand}
(Beforetime
<06440>
in Israel
<03478>_,
when a man
<0376>
went
<03212> (8800)
to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of God
<0430>_,
thus he spake
<0559> (8804)_,
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
and let us go
<03212> (8799)
to the seer
<07200> (8802)_:
for [he that is] now
<03117>
[called] a Prophet
<05030>
was beforetime
<06440>
called
<07121> (8735)
a Seer
<07200> (8802).)
Then said
<01697>
Saul
<07586>
to his servant
<05288>_,
Well
<02896>
said
<0559> (8799)_;
come
<03212> (8798)_,
let us go
<03212> (8799)_.
So they went
<03212> (8799)
unto the city
<05892>
where the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>
[was]. {Well said: Heb. Thy word is good}
[And] as they went up
<05927> (8802)
the hill
<04608>
to the city
<05892>_,
they found
<04672> (8804)
young maidens
<05291>
going out
<03318> (8802)
to draw
<07579> (8800)
water
<04325>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Is
<03426>
the seer
<07200> (8802)
here? {the hill...: Heb. in the ascent of the city}
And they answered
<06030> (8799)
them, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
He is
<03426>_;
behold, [he is] before
<06440>
you: make haste
<04116> (8761)
now, for he came
<0935> (8804)
to day
<03117>
to the city
<05892>_;
for [there is] a sacrifice
<02077>
of the people
<05971>
to day
<03117>
in the high place
<01116>_:
{sacrifice: or, feast}
As soon as ye be come
<0935> (8800)
into the city
<05892>_,
ye shall straightway
<03651>
find
<04672> (8799)
him, before he go up
<05927> (8799)
to the high place
<01116>
to eat
<0398> (8800)_:
for the people
<05971>
will not eat
<0398> (8799)
until he come
<0935> (8800)_,
because he doth bless
<01288> (8762)
the sacrifice
<02077>_;
[and] afterwards
<0310> <03651>
they eat
<0398> (8799)
that be bidden
<07121> (8803)_.
Now therefore get you up
<05927> (8798)_;
for about this time
<03117>
ye shall find
<04672> (8799)
him. {this time: Heb. to day}
And they went up
<05927> (8799)
into
<08432>
the city
<05892>_:
[and] when they were come
<0935> (8802)
into the city
<05892>_,
behold, Samuel
<08050>
came out
<03318> (8802)
against
<07125> (8800)
them, for to go up
<05927> (8800)
to the high place
<01116>_.
Now the LORD
<03068>
had told
<01540> (8804)
Samuel
<08050>
in his ear
<0241>
a
<0259>
day
<03117>
before
<06440>
Saul
<07586>
came
<0935> (8800)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
{told...: Heb. revealed the ear of Samuel}
To morrow
<04279>
about this time
<06256>
I will send
<07971> (8799)
thee a man
<0376>
out of the land
<0776>
of Benjamin
<01144>_,
and thou shalt anoint
<04886> (8804)
him [to be] captain
<05057>
over my people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
that he may save
<03467> (8689)
my people
<05971>
out of the hand
<03027>
of the Philistines
<06430>_:
for I have looked
<07200> (8804)
upon my people
<05971>_,
because their cry
<06818>
is come
<0935> (8804)
unto me.
And when Samuel
<08050>
saw
<07200> (8804)
Saul
<07586>_,
the LORD
<03068>
said
<06030> (8804)
unto him, Behold the man
<0376>
whom I spake
<0559> (8804)
to thee of! this same shall reign
<06113> (8799)
over my people
<05971>_.
{reign over: Heb. restrain in}
Then Saul
<07586>
drew near
<05066> (8799)
to Samuel
<08050>
in
<08432>
the gate
<08179>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Tell
<05046> (8685)
me, I pray thee, where
<0335>
the seer's
<07200> (8802)
house
<01004>
[is].
And Samuel
<08050>
answered
<06030> (8799)
Saul
<07586>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am] the seer
<07200> (8802)_:
go up
<05927> (8798)
before
<06440>
me unto the high place
<01116>_;
for ye shall eat
<0398> (8804)
with me to day
<03117>_,
and to morrow
<01242>
I will let thee go
<07971> (8765)_,
and will tell
<05046> (8686)
thee all that [is] in thine heart
<03824>_.
And as for thine asses
<0860>
that were lost
<06> (8802)
three
<07969>
days
<03117>
ago
<03117>_,
set
<07760> (8799)
not thy mind
<03820>
on them; for they are found
<04672> (8738)_.
And on whom [is] all the desire
<02532>
of Israel
<03478>_?
[Is it] not on thee, and on all thy father's
<01>
house
<01004>_?
{three...: Heb. to day three days}
And Saul
<07586>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Am] not I a Benjamite
<01145>_,
of the smallest
<06996>
of the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>_?
and my family
<04940>
the least
<06810>
of all the families
<04940>
of the tribe
<07626>
of Benjamin
<01144>_?
wherefore then speakest
<01696> (8765)
thou so
<01697>
to me? {so...: Heb. according to this word}
And Samuel
<08050>
took
<03947> (8799)
Saul
<07586>
and his servant
<05288>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
them into the parlour
<03957>_,
and made them sit
<05414> (8799)
in the chiefest
<07218>
place
<04725>
among them that were bidden
<07121> (8803)_,
which [were] about thirty
<07970>
persons
<0376>_.
And Samuel
<08050>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the cook
<02876>_,
Bring
<05414> (8798)
the portion
<04490>
which I gave
<05414> (8804)
thee, of which I said
<0559> (8804)
unto thee, Set
<07760> (8798)
it by thee.
And the cook
<02876>
took up
<07311> (8686)
the shoulder
<07785>_,
and [that] which [was] upon it, and set
<07760> (8799)
[it] before
<06440>
Saul
<07586>_.
And [Samuel] said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold that which is left
<07604> (8737)_!
set
<07760> (8798)
[it] before
<06440>
thee, [and] eat
<0398> (8798)_:
for unto this time
<04150>
hath it been kept
<08104> (8803)
for thee since I said
<0559> (8800)_,
I have invited
<07121> (8804)
the people
<05971>_.
So Saul
<07586>
did eat
<0398> (8799)
with Samuel
<08050>
that day
<03117>_.
{left: or, reserved}
And when they were come down
<03381> (8799)
from the high place
<01116>
into the city
<05892>_,
[Samuel] communed
<01696> (8762)
with Saul
<07586>
upon the top of the house
<01406>_.
And they arose early
<07925> (8686)_:
and it came to pass about the spring
<05927> (8800)
of the day
<07837>_,
that Samuel
<08050>
called
<07121> (8799)
Saul
<07586>
to the top of the house
<01406>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Up
<06965> (8798)_,
that I may send thee away
<07971> (8762)_.
And Saul
<07586>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and they went out
<03318> (8799)
both
<08147>
of them, he and Samuel
<08050>_,
abroad
<02351>_.
[And] as they were going down
<03381> (8802)
to the end
<07097>
of the city
<05892>_,
Samuel
<08050>
said
<0559> (8804)
to Saul
<07586>_,
Bid
<0559> (8798)
the servant
<05288>
pass on
<05674> (8799)
before
<06440>
us, (and he passed on
<05674> (8798),)
but stand
<05975> (8798)
thou still a while
<03117>_,
that I may shew
<08085> (8686)
thee the word
<01697>
of God
<0430>_.
{a while: Heb. to day}
