1 Samuel 16:11-13

Context
16:11 Then Samuel said to Jesse, “Is that all of the young men?” Jesse 1  replied, “There is still the youngest one, but he’s taking care of the flock.” Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and get him, for we cannot turn our attention to other things until he comes here.”

16:12 So Jesse had him brought in. 2  Now he was ruddy, with attractive eyes and a handsome appearance. The Lord said, “Go and anoint him. This is the one!” 16:13 So Samuel took the horn full of olive oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers. The Spirit of the Lord rushed upon David from that day onward. Then Samuel got up and went to Ramah.

1 tn Heb “he”; the referent (Jesse) has been specified in the translation both here and in v. 12 for clarity.

2 tn Heb “and he sent and brought him.”
