So Saul inquired of the Lord, but the Lord did not answer him – not by dreams nor by Urim 1 nor by the prophets.
At that time, when David saw that the Lord responded to him at the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, he sacrificed there.
When Samuel saw Saul, the Lord said, 1 “Here is the man that I told you about! He will rule over my people.”
So Saul asked God, “Should I go down after the Philistines? Will you deliver them into the hand of Israel?” But he did not answer him that day.
For as surely as the Lord, the deliverer of Israel, lives, even if it turns out to be my own son Jonathan, he will certainly die!” But no one from the army said anything. 1
