1 Samuel 10


1  Then Samuel8050 took3947 853 a vial6378 of oil,8081 and poured3332 it upon5921 his head,7218 and kissed5401 him, and said,559 Is it not3808 because3588 the LORD3068 hath anointed4886 thee to be captain5057 over5921 his inheritance?5159

2  When thou art departed1980 from4480 5973 me today,3117 then thou shalt find4672 two8147 men376 by5973 Rachel's7354 sepulcher6900 in the border1366 of Benjamin1144 at Zelzah;6766 and they will say559 unto413 thee, The asses860 which834 thou wentest1980 to seek1245 are found:4672 and, lo,2009 thy father1 hath left5203 853 the care1697 of the asses,860 and sorroweth1672 for you, saying,559 What4100 shall I do6213 for my son?1121

3  Then shalt thou go on2498 forward1973 from thence,4480 8033 and thou shalt come935 to5704 the plain436 of Tabor,8396 and there8033 shall meet4672 thee three7969 men376 going up5927 to413 God430 to Bethel,1008 one259 carrying5375 three7969 kids,1423 and another259 carrying5375 three7969 loaves3603 of bread,3899 and another259 carrying5375 a bottle5035 of wine:3196

4  And they will salute7592 7965 thee, and give5414 thee two8147 loaves of bread;3899 which thou shalt receive3947 of their hands.4480 3027

5  After that310 3651 thou shalt come935 to the hill1389 of God,430 where834 8033 is the garrison5333 of the Philistines:6430 and it shall come to pass,1961 when thou art come935 thither8033 to the city,5892 that thou shalt meet6293 a company2256 of prophets5030 coming down3381 from the high place4480 1116 with a psaltery,5035 and a tabret,8596 and a pipe,2485 and a harp,3658 before6440 them; and they1992 shall prophesy:5012

6  And the Spirit7307 of the LORD3068 will come6743 upon5921 thee, and thou shalt prophesy5012 with them,5973 and shalt be turned2015 into another312 man.376

7  And let it be,1961 when3588 these428 signs226 are come935 unto thee, that thou do6213 as occasion serve834 4672 3027 thee; for3588 God430 is with5973 thee.

8  And thou shalt go down3381 before6440 me to Gilgal;1537 and, behold,2009 I595 will come down3381 unto413 thee, to offer5927 burnt offerings,5930 and to sacrifice2076 sacrifices2077 of peace offerings:8002 seven7651 days3117 shalt thou tarry,3176 till5704 I come935 to413 thee, and show3045 thee 853 what834 thou shalt do.6213

9  And it was1961 so, that when he had turned6437 his back7926 to go1980 from4480 5973 Samuel,8050 God430 gave2015 him another312 heart:3820 and all3605 those428 signs226 came to pass935 that1931 day.3117

10  And when they came935 thither8033 to the hill,1389 behold,2009 a company2256 of prophets5030 met7125 him; and the Spirit7307 of God430 came6743 upon5921 him, and he prophesied5012 among8432 them.

11  And it came to pass,1961 when all3605 that knew3045 him formerly4480 865 8032 saw7200 that, behold,2009 he prophesied5012 among5973 the prophets,5030 then the people5971 said559 one376 to413 another,7453 What4100 is this2088 that is come1961 unto the son1121 of Kish?7027 Is Saul7586 also1571 among the prophets?5030

12  And one376 of the same place4480 8033 answered6030 and said,559 But who4310 is their father?1 Therefore5921 3651 it became1961 a proverb,4912 Is Saul7586 also1571 among the prophets?5030

13  And when he had made an end3615 of prophesying,4480 5012 he came935 to the high place.1116

14  And Saul's7586 uncle1730 said559 unto413 him and to413 his servant,5288 Whither575 went1980 ye? And he said,559 To seek1245 853 the asses:860 and when we saw7200 that3588 they were no where,369 we came935 to413 Samuel.8050

15  And Saul's7586 uncle1730 said,559 Tell5046 me, I pray thee,4994 what4100 Samuel8050 said559 unto you.

16  And Saul7586 said559 unto413 his uncle,1730 He told us plainly5046 5046 that3588 the asses860 were found.4672 But of the matter1697 of the kingdom,4410 whereof834 Samuel8050 spoke,559 he told5046 him not.3808

17  And Samuel8050 called the people together6817 853 5971 unto413 the LORD3068 to Mizpeh;4709

18  And said559 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 I595 brought up5927 853 Israel3478 out of Egypt,4480 4714 and delivered5337 you out of the hand4480 3027 of the Egyptians,4714 and out of the hand4480 3027 of all3605 kingdoms,4467 and of them that oppressed3905 you:

19  And ye859 have this day3117 rejected3988 853 your God,430 who834 himself1931 saved3467 you out of all4480 3605 your adversities7451 and your tribulations;6869 and ye have said559 unto him, Nay, but3588 set7760 a king4428 over5921 us. Now6258 therefore present yourselves3320 before6440 the LORD3068 by your tribes,7626 and by your thousands.505

20  And when Samuel8050 had caused 853 all3605 the tribes7626 of Israel3478 to come near,7126 the tribe7626 of Benjamin1144 was taken.3920

21  When he had caused 853 the tribe7626 of Benjamin1144 to come near7126 by their families,4940 the family4940 of Matri4309 was taken,3920 and Saul7586 the son1121 of Kish7027 was taken:3920 and when they sought1245 him, he could not3808 be found.4672

22  Therefore they inquired7592 of the LORD3068 further,5750 if the man376 should yet5750 come935 thither.1988 And the LORD3068 answered,559 Behold,2009 he1931 hath hid himself2244 among413 the stuff.3627

23  And they ran7323 and fetched3947 him thence:4480 8033 and when he stood3320 among8432 the people,5971 he was higher1361 than any4480 3605 of the people5971 from his shoulders4480 7926 and upward.4605

24  And Samuel8050 said559 to413 all3605 the people,5971 See7200 ye him whom834 the LORD3068 hath chosen,977 that3588 there is none369 like him3644 among all3605 the people?5971 And all3605 the people5971 shouted,7321 and said,559 God save2421 the king.4428

25  Then Samuel8050 told1696 413 the people5971 853 the manner4941 of the kingdom,4410 and wrote3789 it in a book,5612 and laid it up5117 before6440 the LORD.3068 And Samuel8050 sent7971 853 all3605 the people5971 away, every man376 to his house.1004

26  And Saul7586 also1571 went1980 home1004 to Gibeah;1390 and there went1980 with5973 him a band of men,2428 whose834 hearts3820 God430 had touched.5060

27  But the children1121 of Belial1100 said,559 How4100 shall this2088 man save3467 us? And they despised959 him, and brought935 him no3808 presents.4503 But he held his peace.2790


1 καὶ ἔλαβεν Σαμουηλ τὸν φακὸν τοῦ ἐλαίου καὶ ἐπέχεεν ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐφίλησεν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ οὐχὶ κέχρικέν σε κύριος εἰς ἄρχοντα ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ σὺ ἄρξεις ἐν λαῷ κυρίου καὶ σὺ σώσεις αὐτὸν ἐκ χειρὸς ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ κυκλόθεν καὶ τοῦτό σοι τὸ σημεῖον ὅτι ἔχρισέν σε κύριος ἐπὶ κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ εἰς ἄρχοντα

2 ὡς ἂν ἀπέλθῃς σήμερον ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ εὑρήσεις δύο ἄνδρας πρὸς τοῖς τάφοις Ραχηλ ἐν τῷ ὁρίῳ Βενιαμιν ἁλλομένους μεγάλα καὶ ἐροῦσίν σοι εὕρηνται αἱ ὄνοι ἃς ἐπορεύθητε ζητεῖν καὶ ἰδοὺ ὁ πατήρ σου ἀποτετίνακται τὸ ῥῆμα τῶν ὄνων καὶ ἐδαψιλεύσατο δι᾽ ὑμᾶς λέγων τί ποιήσω ὑπὲρ τοῦ υἱοῦ μου

3 καὶ ἀπελεύσει ἐκεῖθεν καὶ ἐπέκεινα ἥξεις ἕως τῆς δρυὸς Θαβωρ καὶ εὑρήσεις ἐκεῖ τρεῖς ἄνδρας ἀναβαίνοντας πρὸς τὸν θεὸν εἰς Βαιθηλ ἕνα αἴροντα τρία αἰγίδια καὶ ἕνα αἴροντα τρία ἀγγεῖα ἄρτων καὶ ἕνα αἴροντα ἀσκὸν οἴνου

4 καὶ ἐρωτήσουσίν σε τὰ εἰς εἰρήνην καὶ δώσουσίν σοι δύο ἀπαρχὰς ἄρτων καὶ λήμψῃ ἐκ τῆς χειρὸς αὐτῶν

5 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα εἰσελεύσῃ εἰς τὸν βουνὸν τοῦ θεοῦ οὗ ἐστιν ἐκεῖ τὸ ἀνάστημα τῶν ἀλλοφύλων ἐκεῖ Νασιβ ὁ ἀλλόφυλος καὶ ἔσται ὡς ἂν εἰσέλθητε ἐκεῖ εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ ἀπαντήσεις χορῷ προφητῶν καταβαινόντων ἐκ τῆς Βαμα καὶ ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν νάβλα καὶ τύμπανον καὶ αὐλὸς καὶ κινύρα καὶ αὐτοὶ προφητεύοντες

6 καὶ ἐφαλεῖται ἐπὶ σὲ πνεῦμα κυρίου καὶ προφητεύσεις μετ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ στραφήσῃ εἰς ἄνδρα ἄλλον

7 καὶ ἔσται ὅταν ἥξει τὰ σημεῖα ταῦτα ἐπὶ σέ ποίει πάντα ὅσα ἐὰν εὕρῃ ἡ χείρ σου ὅτι θεὸς μετὰ σοῦ

8 καὶ καταβήσῃ ἔμπροσθεν τῆς Γαλγαλα καὶ ἰδοὺ καταβαίνω πρὸς σὲ ἀνενεγκεῖν ὁλοκαύτωσιν καὶ θυσίας εἰρηνικάς ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας διαλείψεις ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν με πρὸς σέ καὶ γνωρίσω σοι ἃ ποιήσεις

9 καὶ ἐγενήθη ὥστε ἐπιστραφῆναι τῷ ὤμῳ αὐτοῦ ἀπελθεῖν ἀπὸ Σαμουηλ μετέστρεψεν αὐτῷ ὁ θεὸς καρδίαν ἄλλην καὶ ἦλθεν πάντα τὰ σημεῖα ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ

10 καὶ ἔρχεται ἐκεῖθεν εἰς τὸν βουνόν καὶ ἰδοὺ χορὸς προφητῶν ἐξ ἐναντίας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἥλατο ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν πνεῦμα θεοῦ καὶ ἐπροφήτευσεν ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν

11 καὶ ἐγενήθησαν πάντες οἱ εἰδότες αὐτὸν ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ αὐτὸς ἐν μέσῳ τῶν προφητῶν καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ τί τοῦτο τὸ γεγονὸς τῷ υἱῷ Κις ἦ καὶ Σαουλ ἐν προφήταις

12 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη τις αὐτῶν καὶ εἶπεν καὶ τίς πατὴρ αὐτοῦ διὰ τοῦτο ἐγενήθη εἰς παραβολήν ἦ καὶ Σαουλ ἐν προφήταις

13 καὶ συνετέλεσεν προφητεύων καὶ ἔρχεται εἰς τὸν βουνόν

14 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ οἰκεῖος αὐτοῦ πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ πρὸς τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ ποῦ ἐπορεύθητε καὶ εἶπαν ζητεῖν τὰς ὄνους καὶ εἴδαμεν ὅτι οὐκ εἰσίν καὶ εἰσήλθομεν πρὸς Σαμουηλ

15 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ οἰκεῖος πρὸς Σαουλ ἀπάγγειλον δή μοι τί εἶπέν σοι Σαμουηλ

16 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς τὸν οἰκεῖον αὐτοῦ ἀπήγγειλεν ἀπαγγέλλων μοι ὅτι εὕρηνται αἱ ὄνοι τὸ δὲ ῥῆμα τῆς βασιλείας οὐκ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῷ

17 καὶ παρήγγειλεν Σαμουηλ παντὶ τῷ λαῷ πρὸς κύριον εἰς Μασσηφα

18 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ τάδε εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ λέγων ἐγὼ ἀνήγαγον τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐξειλάμην ὑμᾶς ἐκ χειρὸς Φαραω βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐκ πασῶν τῶν βασιλειῶν τῶν θλιβουσῶν ὑμᾶς

19 καὶ ὑμεῖς σήμερον ἐξουθενήκατε τὸν θεόν ὃς αὐτός ἐστιν ὑμῶν σωτὴρ ἐκ πάντων τῶν κακῶν ὑμῶν καὶ θλίψεων ὑμῶν καὶ εἴπατε οὐχί ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ὅτι βασιλέα στήσεις ἐφ᾽ ἡμῶν καὶ νῦν κατάστητε ἐνώπιον κυρίου κατὰ τὰ σκῆπτρα ὑμῶν καὶ κατὰ τὰς φυλὰς ὑμῶν

20 καὶ προσήγαγεν Σαμουηλ πάντα τὰ σκῆπτρα Ισραηλ καὶ κατακληροῦται σκῆπτρον Βενιαμιν

21 καὶ προσάγει σκῆπτρον Βενιαμιν εἰς φυλάς καὶ κατακληροῦται φυλὴ Ματταρι καὶ προσάγουσιν τὴν φυλὴν Ματταρι εἰς ἄνδρας καὶ κατακληροῦται Σαουλ υἱὸς Κις καὶ ἐζήτει αὐτόν καὶ οὐχ εὑρίσκετο

22 καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν Σαμουηλ ἔτι ἐν κυρίῳ εἰ ἔρχεται ὁ ἀνὴρ ἐνταῦθα καὶ εἶπεν κύριος ἰδοὺ αὐτὸς κέκρυπται ἐν τοῖς σκεύεσιν

23 καὶ ἔδραμεν καὶ λαμβάνει αὐτὸν ἐκεῖθεν καὶ κατέστησεν ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ ὑψώθη ὑπὲρ πάντα τὸν λαὸν ὑπὲρ ὠμίαν καὶ ἐπάνω

24 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ πρὸς πάντα τὸν λαόν εἰ ἑοράκατε ὃν ἐκλέλεκται ἑαυτῷ κύριος ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτῷ ὅμοιος ἐν πᾶσιν ὑμῖν καὶ ἔγνωσαν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς καὶ εἶπαν ζήτω ὁ βασιλεύς

25 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ πρὸς τὸν λαὸν τὸ δικαίωμα τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔγραψεν ἐν βιβλίῳ καὶ ἔθηκεν ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν Σαμουηλ πάντα τὸν λαόν καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ

26 καὶ Σαουλ ἀπῆλθεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ εἰς Γαβαα καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν υἱοὶ δυνάμεων ὧν ἥψατο κύριος καρδίας αὐτῶν μετὰ Σαουλ

27 καὶ υἱοὶ λοιμοὶ εἶπαν τί σώσει ἡμᾶς οὗτος καὶ ἠτίμασαν αὐτὸν καὶ οὐκ ἤνεγκαν αὐτῷ δῶρα

1 Tulit autem Samuel lenticulam olei, et effudit super caput ejus: et deosculatus est eum, et ait: Ecce unxit te Dominus super hæreditatem suam in principem, et liberabis populum suum de manibus inimicorum ejus qui in circuitu ejus sunt. Et hoc tibi signum, quia unxit te Deus in principem.

2 Cum abieris hodie a me, invenies duos viros juxta sepulchrum Rachel in finibus Benjamin, in meridie: dicentque tibi: Inventæ sunt asinæ ad quas ieras perquirendas: et intermissis pater tuus asinis, sollicitus est pro vobis, et dicit: Quid faciam de filio meo?

3 Cumque abieris inde, et ultra transieris, et veneris ad quercum Thabor, invenient te ibi tres viri ascendentes ad Deum in Bethel, unus portans tres hædos, et alius tres tortas panis, et alius portans lagenam vini.

4 Cumque te salutaverint, dabunt tibi duos panes, et accipies de manu eorum.

5 Post hæc venies in collem Dei, ubi est statio Philisthinorum: et cum ingressus fueris ibi urbem, obvium habebis gregem prophetarum descendentium de excelso, et ante eos psalterium, et tympanum, et tibiam, et citharam, ipsosque prophetantes.

6 Et insiliet in te spiritus Domini, et prophetabis cum eis, et mutaberis in virum alium.

7 Quando ergo evenerint signa hæc omnia tibi, fac quæcumque invenerit manus tua, quia Dominus tecum est.

8 Et descendes ante me in Galgala (ego quippe descendam ad te), ut offeras oblationem, et immoles victimas pacificas: septem diebus expectabis, donec veniam ad te, et ostendam tibi quid facias.

9 Itaque cum avertisset humerum suum ut abiret a Samuele, immutavit ei Deus cor aliud, et venerunt omnia signa hæc in die illa.

10 Veneruntque ad prædictum collem, et ecce cuneus prophetarum obvius ei: et insiluit super eum spiritus Domini, et prophetavit in medio eorum.

11 Videntes autem omnes qui noverant eum heri et nudiustertius quod esset cum prophetis, et prophetaret, dixerunt ad invicem: Quænam res accidit filio Cis? num et Saul inter prophetas?

12 Responditque alius ad alterum, dicens: Et quis pater eorum? Propterea versum est in proverbium: Num et Saul inter prophetas?

13 Cessavit autem prophetare, et venit ad excelsum.

14 Dixitque patruus Saul ad eum, et ad puerum ejus: Quo abistis? Qui responderunt: Quærere asinas: quas cum non reperissemus, venimus ad Samuelem.

15 Et dixit ei patruus suus: Indica mihi quid dixerit tibi Samuel.

16 Et ait Saul ad patruum suum: Indicavit nobis quia inventæ essent asinæ. De sermone autem regni non indicavit ei quem locutus fuerat ei Samuel.

17 Et convocavit Samuel populum ad Dominum in Maspha:

18 et ait ad filios Israël: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Ego eduxi Israël de Ægypto, et erui vos de manu Ægyptiorum, et de manu omnium regum qui affligebant vos.

19 Vos autem hodie projecistis Deum vestrum, qui solus salvavit vos de universis malis et tribulationibus vestris: et dixistis: Nequaquam: sed regem constitue super nos. Nunc ergo state coram Domino per tribus vestras, et per familias.

20 Et applicuit Samuel omnes tribus Israël, et cecidit sors tribus Benjamin.

21 Et applicuit tribum Benjamin et cognationes ejus, et cecidit cognatio Metri: et pervenit usque ad Saul filium Cis. Quæsierunt ergo eum, et non est inventus.

22 Et consuluerunt post hæc Dominum utrumnam venturus esset illuc. Responditque Dominus: Ecce absconditus est domi.

23 Cucurrerunt itaque et tulerunt eum inde: stetitque in medio populi, et altior fuit universo populo ab humero et sursum.

24 Et ait Samuel ad omnem populum: Certe videtis quem elegit Dominus, quoniam non sit similis illi in omni populo. Et clamavit omnis populus, et ait: Vivat rex.

25 Locutus est autem Samuel ad populum legem regni, et scripsit in libro, et reposuit coram Domino: et dimisit Samuel omnem populum, singulos in domum suam.

26 Sed et Saul abiit in domum suam in Gabaa: et abiit cum eo pars exercitus, quorum tetigerat Deus corda.

27 Filii vero Belial dixerunt: Num salvare nos poterit iste? Et despexerunt eum, et non attulerunt ei munera: ille vero dissimulabat se audire.
