1 Samuel 10:5

10:5 Afterward you will go to Gibeah of God, where there are Philistine officials. 1  When you enter the town, you will meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place. They will have harps, tambourines, flutes, and lyres, and they will be prophesying.

1 Samuel 13:3-4


13:3 Jonathan attacked the Philistine outpost 2  that was at Geba and the Philistines heard about it. Then Saul alerted 3  all the land saying, “Let the Hebrews pay attention!” 13:4 All Israel heard this message, 4  “Saul has attacked the Philistine outpost, and now Israel is repulsive 5  to the Philistines!” So the people were summoned to join 6  Saul at Gilgal.

1 tn Or “sentries.” Some translate “outpost” (NIV) or “garrison” (NAB, NRSV, NLT) here (see 1 Sam 13:3). The noun is plural in the Hebrew text, but the LXX and other ancient witnesses read a singular noun here.

2 tn Or perhaps “struck down the Philistine official.” See the note at 1 Sam 10:5. Cf. TEV “killed the Philistine commander.”

3 tn Heb “blew the ram’s horn in.”

4 tn The words “this message” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

5 tn Heb “stinks.” The figurative language indicates that Israel had become repulsive to the Philistines.

6 tn Heb “were summoned after.”
