1 Samuel 16:1-13

And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Samuel
<08050>_,
How long wilt thou mourn
<056> (8693)
for Saul
<07586>_,
seeing I have rejected
<03988> (8804)
him from reigning
<04427> (8800)
over Israel
<03478>_?
fill
<04390> (8761)
thine horn
<07161>
with oil
<08081>_,
and go
<03212> (8798)_,
I will send
<07971> (8799)
thee to Jesse
<03448>
the Bethlehemite
<01022>_:
for I have provided
<07200> (8804)
me a king
<04428>
among his sons
<01121>_.
And Samuel
<08050>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
How can I go
<03212> (8799)_?
if Saul
<07586>
hear
<08085> (8804)
[it], he will kill
<02026> (8804)
me. And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Take
<03947> (8799)
an heifer
<01241> <05697>
with thee
<03027>_,
and say
<0559> (8804)_,
I am come
<0935> (8804)
to sacrifice
<02076> (8800)
to the LORD
<03068>_.
{with thee: Heb. in thine hand}
And call
<07121> (8804)
Jesse
<03448>
to the sacrifice
<02077>_,
and I will shew
<03045> (8686)
thee what thou shalt do
<06213> (8799)_:
and thou shalt anoint
<04886> (8804)
unto me [him] whom I name
<0559> (8799)
unto thee.
And Samuel
<08050>
did
<06213> (8799)
that which the LORD
<03068>
spake
<01696> (8765)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Bethlehem
<01035>_.
And the elders
<02205>
of the town
<05892>
trembled
<02729> (8799)
at his coming
<07125> (8800)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Comest
<0935> (8800)
thou peaceably
<07965>_?
{coming: Heb. meeting}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Peaceably
<07965>_:
I am come
<0935> (8804)
to sacrifice
<02076> (8800)
unto the LORD
<03068>_:
sanctify
<06942> (8690)
yourselves, and come
<0935> (8804)
with me to the sacrifice
<02077>_.
And he sanctified
<06942> (8762)
Jesse
<03448>
and his sons
<01121>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
them to the sacrifice
<02077>_.
And it came to pass, when they were come
<0935> (8800)_,
that he looked
<07200> (8799)
on Eliab
<0446>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Surely the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>
[is] before him. {Eliab: called Elihu}
But the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Samuel
<08050>_,
Look
<05027> (8686)
not on his countenance
<04758>_,
or on the height
<01364>
of his stature
<06967>_;
because I have refused
<03988> (8804)
him: for [the LORD seeth] not as man
<0120>
seeth
<07200> (8799)_;
for man
<0120>
looketh
<07200> (8799)
on the outward appearance
<05869>_,
but the LORD
<03068>
looketh
<07200> (8799)
on the heart
<03824>_.
{outward...: Heb. eyes}
Then Jesse
<03448>
called
<07121> (8799)
Abinadab
<041>_,
and made him pass
<05674> (8686)
before
<06440>
Samuel
<08050>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Neither hath the LORD
<03068>
chosen
<0977> (8804)
this.
Then Jesse
<03448>
made Shammah
<08048>
to pass by
<05674> (8686)_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Neither hath the LORD
<03068>
chosen
<0977> (8804)
this. {Shammah: Shimeah, also called, Shimma}
Again, Jesse
<03448>
made seven
<07651>
of his sons
<01121>
to pass
<05674> (8686)
before
<06440>
Samuel
<08050>_.
And Samuel
<08050>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jesse
<03448>_,
The LORD
<03068>
hath not chosen
<0977> (8804)
these.
And Samuel
<08050>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jesse
<03448>_,
Are here all
<08552> (8804)
[thy] children
<05288>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
There remaineth
<07604> (8804)
yet the youngest
<06996>_,
and, behold, he keepeth
<07462> (8802)
the sheep
<06629>_.
And Samuel
<08050>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jesse
<03448>_,
Send
<07971> (8798)
and fetch
<03947> (8798)
him: for we will not sit down
<05437> (8799)
till he come
<0935> (8800)
hither
<06311>_.
{down: Heb. round}
And he sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and brought him in
<0935> (8686)_.
Now he [was] ruddy
<0132>_,
[and] withal
<05973>
of a beautiful
<03303>
countenance
<05869>_,
and goodly
<02896>
to look to
<07210>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
anoint
<04886> (8798)
him: for this [is] he. {of a...: Heb. fair of eyes}
Then Samuel
<08050>
took
<03947> (8799)
the horn
<07161>
of oil
<08081>_,
and anointed
<04886> (8799)
him in the midst
<07130>
of his brethren
<0251>_:
and the Spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
came
<06743> (8799)
upon David
<01732>
from that day
<03117>
forward
<04605>_.
So Samuel
<08050>
rose up
<06965> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
to Ramah
<07414>_.
