So Eli said to Samuel, “Go back and lie down. When he calls you, say, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.” So Samuel went back and lay down in his place.
“I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned away from me and has not done what I told him to do.” Samuel became angry and he cried out to the Lord all that night.
Then Samuel got up early to meet Saul the next morning. But Samuel was informed, “Saul has gone to Carmel where 1 he is setting up a monument for himself. Then Samuel left 2 and went down to Gilgal.” 3
