1 Samuel 15


1  Samuel8050 also said559 unto413 Saul,7586 The LORD3068 sent7971 me to anoint4886 thee to be king4428 over5921 his people,5971 over5921 Israel:3478 now6258 therefore hearken8085 thou unto the voice6963 of the words1697 of the LORD.3068

2  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 I remember6485 that 853 which834 Amalek6002 did6213 to Israel,3478 how834 he laid7760 wait for him in the way,1870 when he came up5927 from Egypt.4480 4714

3  Now6258 go1980 and smite5221 853 Amalek,6002 and utterly destroy2763 853 all3605 that834 they have, and spare2550 5921 them not;3808 but slay4191 both man4480 376 and5704 woman,802 infant4480 5768 and suckling,3243 ox4480 7794 and sheep,7716 camel4480 1581 and ass.2543

4  And Saul7586 gathered the people together,8085 853 5971 and numbered6485 them in Telaim,2923 two hundred3967 thousand505 footmen,7273 and ten6235 thousand505 853 men376 of Judah.3063

5  And Saul7586 came935 to5704 a city5892 of Amalek,6002 and laid wait693 in the valley.5158

6  And Saul7586 said559 unto413 the Kenites,7017 Go,1980 depart,5493 get you down3381 from among4480 8432 the Amalekites,6002 lest6435 I destroy622 you with5973 them: for ye859 showed6213 kindness2617 to5973 all3605 the children1121 of Israel,3478 when they came up5927 out of Egypt.4480 4714 So the Kenites7017 departed5493 from among4480 8432 the Amalekites.6003

7  And Saul7586 smote5221 853 the Amalekites6002 from Havilah4480 2341 until thou comest935 to Shur,7793 that834 is over5921 against6440 Egypt.4714

8  And he took8610 853 Agag90 the king4428 of the Amalekites6002 alive,2416 and utterly destroyed2763 all3605 the people5971 with the edge6310 of the sword.2719

9  But Saul7586 and the people5971 spared2550 5921 Agag,90 and the best4315 of the sheep,6629 and of the oxen,1241 and of the fatlings,4932 and the lambs,3733 and all3605 that was good,2896 and would14 not3808 utterly destroy2763 them: but every3605 thing4399 that was vile5240 and refuse,4549 that they destroyed utterly.2763

10  Then came1961 the word1697 of the LORD3068 unto413 Samuel,8050 saying,559

11  It repenteth me5162 that3588 I have set up4427 853 Saul7586 to be king:4428 for3588 he is turned back7725 from following4480 310 me, and hath not3808 performed6965 my commandments.1697 And it grieved2734 Samuel;8050 and he cried2199 unto413 the LORD3068 all3605 night.3915

12  And when Samuel8050 rose early7925 to meet7125 Saul7586 in the morning,1242 it was told5046 Samuel,8050 saying,559 Saul7586 came935 to Carmel,3760 and, behold,2009 he set him up5324 a place,3027 and is gone about,5437 and passed on,5674 and gone down3381 to Gilgal.1537

13  And Samuel8050 came935 to413 Saul:7586 and Saul7586 said559 unto him, Blessed1288 be thou859 of the LORD:3068 I have performed6965 853 the commandment1697 of the LORD.3068

14  And Samuel8050 said,559 What4100 meaneth then this2088 bleating6963 of the sheep6629 in mine ears,241 and the lowing6963 of the oxen1241 which834 I595 hear?8085

15  And Saul7586 said,559 They have brought935 them from the Amalekites:4480 6003 for834 the people5971 spared2550 5921 the best4315 of the sheep6629 and of the oxen,1241 to sacrifice4616 2076 unto the LORD3068 thy God;430 and the rest3498 we have utterly destroyed.2763

16  Then Samuel8050 said559 unto413 Saul,7586 Stay,7503 and I will tell5046 thee 853 what834 the LORD3068 hath said1696 to413 me this night.3915 And he said559 unto him, Say on.1696

17  And Samuel8050 said,559 When518 thou859 wast little6996 in thine own sight,5869 wast thou859 not3808 made the head7218 of the tribes7626 of Israel,3478 and the LORD3068 anointed4886 thee king4428 over5921 Israel?3478

18  And the LORD3068 sent7971 thee on a journey,1870 and said,559 Go1980 and utterly destroy2763 853 the sinners2400 853 the Amalekites,6002 and fight3898 against them until5704 they be consumed.3615

19  Wherefore4100 then didst thou not3808 obey8085 the voice6963 of the LORD,3068 but didst fly5860 upon413 the spoil,7998 and didst6213 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD?3068

20  And Saul7586 said559 unto413 Samuel,8050 Yea,834 I have obeyed8085 the voice6963 of the LORD,3068 and have gone1980 the way1870 which834 the LORD3068 sent7971 me, and have brought935 853 Agag90 the king4428 of Amalek,6002 and have utterly destroyed2763 the Amalekites.6002

21  But the people5971 took3947 of the spoil,4480 7998 sheep6629 and oxen,1241 the chief7225 of the things which should have been utterly destroyed,2764 to sacrifice2076 unto the LORD3068 thy God430 in Gilgal.1537

22  And Samuel8050 said,559 Hath the LORD3068 as great delight2656 in burnt offerings5930 and sacrifices,2077 as in obeying8085 the voice6963 of the LORD?3068 Behold,2009 to obey8085 is better2896 than sacrifice,4480 2077 and to hearken7181 than the fat4480 2459 of rams.352

23  For3588 rebellion4805 is as the sin2403 of witchcraft,7081 and stubbornness6484 is as iniquity205 and idolatry.8655 Because3282 thou hast rejected3988 853 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 he hath also rejected3988 thee from being king.4480 4428

24  And Saul7586 said559 unto413 Samuel,8050 I have sinned:2398 for3588 I have transgressed5674 853 the commandment6310 of the LORD,3068 and thy words:1697 because3588 I feared3372 853 the people,5971 and obeyed8085 their voice.6963

25  Now6258 therefore, I pray thee,4994 pardon5375 853 my sin,2403 and turn again7725 with5973 me, that I may worship7812 the LORD.3068

26  And Samuel8050 said559 unto413 Saul,7586 I will not3808 return7725 with5973 thee: for3588 thou hast rejected3988 853 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 and the LORD3068 hath rejected3988 thee from being4480 1961 king4428 over5921 Israel.3478

27  And as Samuel8050 turned about5437 to go away,1980 he laid hold2388 upon the skirt3671 of his mantle,4598 and it rent.7167

28  And Samuel8050 said559 unto413 him, The LORD3068 hath rent7167 853 the kingdom4468 of Israel3478 from4480 5921 thee this day,3117 and hath given5414 it to a neighbor7453 of thine, that is better2896 than4480 thou.

29  And also1571 the Strength5331 of Israel3478 will not3808 lie8266 nor3808 repent:5162 for3588 he is not3808 a man,120 that he1931 should repent.5162

30  Then he said,559 I have sinned:2398 yet honor3513 me now,6258 I pray thee,4994 before5048 the elders2205 of my people,5971 and before5048 Israel,3478 and turn again7725 with5973 me, that I may worship7812 the LORD3068 thy God.430

31  So Samuel8050 turned again7725 after310 Saul;7586 and Saul7586 worshiped7812 the LORD.3068

32  Then said559 Samuel,8050 Bring ye hither5066 to413 me 853 Agag90 the king4428 of the Amalekites.6002 And Agag90 came1980 unto413 him delicately.4574 And Agag90 said,559 Surely403 the bitterness4751 of death4194 is past.5493

33  And Samuel8050 said,559 As834 thy sword2719 hath made women802 childless,7921 so3651 shall thy mother517 be childless7921 among women.4480 802 And Samuel8050 hewed Agag in pieces8158 853 90 before6440 the LORD3068 in Gilgal.1537

34  Then Samuel8050 went1980 to Ramah;7414 and Saul7586 went up5927 to413 his house1004 to Gibeah1390 of Saul.7586

35  And Samuel8050 came no3808 more3254 to see7200 853 Saul7586 until5704 the day3117 of his death:4194 nevertheless3588 Samuel8050 mourned56 for413 Saul:7586 and the LORD3068 repented5162 that3588 he had made Saul king4427 853 7586 over5921 Israel.3478


1 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ πρὸς Σαουλ ἐμὲ ἀπέστειλεν κύριος χρῖσαί σε εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ νῦν ἄκουε τῆς φωνῆς κυρίου

2 τάδε εἶπεν κύριος σαβαωθ νῦν ἐκδικήσω ἃ ἐποίησεν Αμαληκ τῷ Ισραηλ ὡς ἀπήντησεν αὐτῷ ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ἀναβαίνοντος αὐτοῦ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου

3 καὶ νῦν πορεύου καὶ πατάξεις τὸν Αμαληκ καὶ Ιεριμ καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ περιποιήσῃ ἐξ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξολεθρεύσεις αὐτὸν καὶ ἀναθεματιεῖς αὐτὸν καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ φείσῃ ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀποκτενεῖς ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἕως γυναικὸς καὶ ἀπὸ νηπίου ἕως θηλάζοντος καὶ ἀπὸ μόσχου ἕως προβάτου καὶ ἀπὸ καμήλου ἕως ὄνου

4 καὶ παρήγγειλεν Σαουλ τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐπισκέπτεται αὐτοὺς ἐν Γαλγαλοις τετρακοσίας χιλιάδας ταγμάτων καὶ τὸν Ιουδαν τριάκοντα χιλιάδας ταγμάτων

5 καὶ ἦλθεν Σαουλ ἕως τῶν πόλεων Αμαληκ καὶ ἐνήδρευσεν ἐν τῷ χειμάρρῳ

6 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς τὸν Κιναῖον ἄπελθε καὶ ἔκκλινον ἐκ μέσου τοῦ Αμαληκίτου μὴ προσθῶ σε μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ σὺ ἐποίησας ἔλεος μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἐν τῷ ἀναβαίνειν αὐτοὺς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐξέκλινεν ὁ Κιναῖος ἐκ μέσου Αμαληκ

7 καὶ ἐπάταξεν Σαουλ τὸν Αμαληκ ἀπὸ Ευιλατ ἕως Σουρ ἐπὶ προσώπου Αἰγύπτου

8 καὶ συνέλαβεν τὸν Αγαγ βασιλέα Αμαληκ ζῶντα καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν Ιεριμ ἀπέκτεινεν ἐν στόματι ῥομφαίας

9 καὶ περιεποιήσατο Σαουλ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τὸν Αγαγ ζῶντα καὶ τὰ ἀγαθὰ τῶν ποιμνίων καὶ τῶν βουκολίων καὶ τῶν ἐδεσμάτων καὶ τῶν ἀμπελώνων καὶ πάντων τῶν ἀγαθῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐβούλετο αὐτὰ ἐξολεθρεῦσαι καὶ πᾶν ἔργον ἠτιμωμένον καὶ ἐξουδενωμένον ἐξωλέθρευσαν

10 καὶ ἐγενήθη ῥῆμα κυρίου πρὸς Σαμουηλ λέγων

11 παρακέκλημαι ὅτι ἐβασίλευσα τὸν Σαουλ εἰς βασιλέα ὅτι ἀπέστρεψεν ἀπὸ ὄπισθέν μου καὶ τοὺς λόγους μου οὐκ ἐτήρησεν καὶ ἠθύμησεν Σαμουηλ καὶ ἐβόησεν πρὸς κύριον ὅλην τὴν νύκτα

12 καὶ ὤρθρισεν Σαμουηλ καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς ἀπάντησιν Ισραηλ πρωί καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Σαμουηλ λέγοντες ἥκει Σαουλ εἰς Κάρμηλον καὶ ἀνέστακεν αὐτῷ χεῖρα καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν τὸ ἅρμα καὶ κατέβη εἰς Γαλγαλα πρὸς Σαουλ καὶ ἰδοὺ αὐτὸς ἀνέφερεν ὁλοκαύτωσιν τῷ κυρίῳ τὰ πρῶτα τῶν σκύλων ὧν ἤνεγκεν ἐξ Αμαληκ

13 καὶ παρεγένετο Σαμουηλ πρὸς Σαουλ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Σαουλ εὐλογητὸς σὺ τῷ κυρίῳ ἔστησα πάντα ὅσα ἐλάλησεν κύριος

14 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ καὶ τίς ἡ φωνὴ τοῦ ποιμνίου τούτου ἐν τοῖς ὠσίν μου καὶ φωνὴ τῶν βοῶν ὧν ἐγὼ ἀκούω

15 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ ἐξ Αμαληκ ἤνεγκα αὐτά ἃ περιεποιήσατο ὁ λαός τὰ κράτιστα τοῦ ποιμνίου καὶ τῶν βοῶν ὅπως τυθῇ τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ σου καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ ἐξωλέθρευσα

16 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ πρὸς Σαουλ ἄνες καὶ ἀπαγγελῶ σοι ἃ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρός με τὴν νύκτα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ λάλησον

17 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ πρὸς Σαουλ οὐχὶ μικρὸς σὺ εἶ ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ ἡγούμενος σκήπτρου φυλῆς Ισραηλ καὶ ἔχρισέν σε κύριος εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ Ισραηλ

18 καὶ ἀπέστειλέν σε κύριος ἐν ὁδῷ καὶ εἶπέν σοι πορεύθητι καὶ ἐξολέθρευσον τοὺς ἁμαρτάνοντας εἰς ἐμέ τὸν Αμαληκ καὶ πολεμήσεις αὐτούς ἕως συντελέσῃς αὐτούς

19 καὶ ἵνα τί οὐκ ἤκουσας τῆς φωνῆς κυρίου ἀλλ᾽ ὥρμησας τοῦ θέσθαι ἐπὶ τὰ σκῦλα καὶ ἐποίησας τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου

20 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς Σαμουηλ διὰ τὸ ἀκοῦσαί με τῆς φωνῆς τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύθην ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ᾗ ἀπέστειλέν με κύριος καὶ ἤγαγον τὸν Αγαγ βασιλέα Αμαληκ καὶ τὸν Αμαληκ ἐξωλέθρευσα

21 καὶ ἔλαβεν ὁ λαὸς τῶν σκύλων ποίμνια καὶ βουκόλια τὰ πρῶτα τοῦ ἐξολεθρεύματος θῦσαι ἐνώπιον κυρίου θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἐν Γαλγαλοις

22 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ εἰ θελητὸν τῷ κυρίῳ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ θυσίαι ὡς τὸ ἀκοῦσαι φωνῆς κυρίου ἰδοὺ ἀκοὴ ὑπὲρ θυσίαν ἀγαθὴ καὶ ἡ ἐπακρόασις ὑπὲρ στέαρ κριῶν

23 ὅτι ἁμαρτία οἰώνισμά ἐστιν ὀδύνην καὶ πόνους θεραφιν ἐπάγουσιν ὅτι ἐξουδένωσας τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου καὶ ἐξουδενώσει σε κύριος μὴ εἶναι βασιλέα ἐπὶ Ισραηλ

24 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς Σαμουηλ ἡμάρτηκα ὅτι παρέβην τὸν λόγον κυρίου καὶ τὸ ῥῆμά σου ὅτι ἐφοβήθην τὸν λαὸν καὶ ἤκουσα τῆς φωνῆς αὐτῶν

25 καὶ νῦν ἆρον δὴ τὸ ἁμάρτημά μου καὶ ἀνάστρεψον μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ προσκυνήσω κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ σου

26 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ πρὸς Σαουλ οὐκ ἀναστρέφω μετὰ σοῦ ὅτι ἐξουδένωσας τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου καὶ ἐξουδενώσει σε κύριος τοῦ μὴ εἶναι βασιλέα ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ

27 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν Σαμουηλ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἀπελθεῖν καὶ ἐκράτησεν Σαουλ τοῦ πτερυγίου τῆς διπλοΐδος αὐτοῦ καὶ διέρρηξεν αὐτό

28 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Σαμουηλ διέρρηξεν κύριος τὴν βασιλείαν Ισραηλ ἐκ χειρός σου σήμερον καὶ δώσει αὐτὴν τῷ πλησίον σου τῷ ἀγαθῷ ὑπὲρ σέ

29 καὶ διαιρεθήσεται Ισραηλ εἰς δύο καὶ οὐκ ἀποστρέψει οὐδὲ μετανοήσει ὅτι οὐχ ὡς ἄνθρωπός ἐστιν τοῦ μετανοῆσαι αὐτός

30 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ ἡμάρτηκα ἀλλὰ δόξασόν με δὴ ἐνώπιον πρεσβυτέρων Ισραηλ καὶ ἐνώπιον λαοῦ μου καὶ ἀνάστρεψον μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ προσκυνήσω τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ σου

31 καὶ ἀνέστρεψεν Σαμουηλ ὀπίσω Σαουλ καὶ προσεκύνησεν τῷ κυρίῳ

32 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ προσαγάγετέ μοι τὸν Αγαγ βασιλέα Αμαληκ καὶ προσῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Αγαγ τρέμων καὶ εἶπεν Αγαγ εἰ οὕτως πικρὸς ὁ θάνατος

33 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ πρὸς Αγαγ καθότι ἠτέκνωσεν γυναῖκας ἡ ῥομφαία σου οὕτως ἀτεκνωθήσεται ἐκ γυναικῶν ἡ μήτηρ σου καὶ ἔσφαξεν Σαμουηλ τὸν Αγαγ ἐνώπιον κυρίου ἐν Γαλγαλ

34 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν Σαμουηλ εἰς Αρμαθαιμ καὶ Σαουλ ἀνέβη εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ εἰς Γαβαα

35 καὶ οὐ προσέθετο Σαμουηλ ἔτι ἰδεῖν τὸν Σαουλ ἕως ἡμέρας θανάτου αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐπένθει Σαμουηλ ἐπὶ Σαουλ καὶ κύριος μετεμελήθη ὅτι ἐβασίλευσεν τὸν Σαουλ ἐπὶ Ισραηλ

1 Et dixit Samuel ad Saul: Me misit Dominus ut ungerem te in regem super populum ejus Israël: nunc ergo audi vocem Domini.

2 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum: Recensui quæcumque fecit Amalec Israëli: quomodo restitit ei in via cum ascenderet de Ægypto.

3 Nunc ergo vade, et percute Amalec, et demolire universa ejus: non parcas ei, et non concupiscas ex rebus ipsius aliquid, sed interfice a viro usque ad mulierem, et parvulum atque lactentem, bovem et ovem, camelum et asinum.

4 Præcepit itaque Saul populo, et recensuit eos quasi agnos: ducenta millia peditum, et decem millia virorum Juda.

5 Cumque venisset Saul usque ad civitatem Amalec, tetendit insidias in torrente.

6 Dixitque Saul Cinæo: Abite, recedite, atque descendite ab Amalec, ne forte involvam te cum eo: tu enim fecisti misericordiam cum omnibus filiis Israël, cum ascenderent de Ægypto. Et recessit Cinæus de medio Amalec.

7 Percussitque Saul Amalec ab Hevila donec venias ad Sur, quæ est e regione Ægypti.

8 Et apprehendit Agag regem Amalec vivum: omne autem vulgus interfecit in ore gladii.

9 Et pepercit Saul et populus Agag, et optimis gregibus ovium et armentorum, et vestibus et arietibus, et universis quæ pulchra erant, nec voluerunt disperdere ea: quidquid vero vile fuit et reprobum, hoc demoliti sunt.

10 Factum est autem verbum Domini ad Samuel, dicens:

11 Pœnitet me quod constituerim Saul regem: quia dereliquit me, et verba mea opere non implevit. Contristatusque est Samuel, et clamavit ad Dominum tota nocte.

12 Cumque de nocte surrexisset Samuel ut iret ad Saul mane, nuntiatum est Samueli eo quod venisset Saul in Carmelum, et erexisset sibi fornicem triumphalem, et reversus transisset, descendissetque in Galgala. Venit ergo Samuel ad Saul, et Saul offerebat holocaustum Domino de initiis prædarum quæ attulerat ex Amalec.

13 Et cum venisset Samuel ad Saul, dixit ei Saul: Benedictus tu Domino: implevi verbum Domini.

14 Dixitque Samuel: Et quæ est hæc vox gregum, quæ resonat in auribus meis, et armentorum, quam ego audio?

15 Et ait Saul: De Amalec adduxerunt ea: pepercit enim populus melioribus ovibus et armentis ut immolarentur Domino Deo tuo, reliqua vero occidimus.

16 Ait autem Samuel ad Saul: Sine me, et indicabo tibi quæ locutus sit Dominus ad me nocte. Dixitque ei: Loquere.

17 Et ait Samuel: Nonne cum parvulus esses in oculis tuis, caput in tribubus Israël factus es? unxitque te Dominus in regem super Israël,

18 et misit te Dominus in viam, et ait: Vade, et interfice peccatores Amalec, et pugnabis contra eos usque ad internecionem eorum?

19 Quare ergo non audisti vocem Domini: sed versus ad prædam es, et fecisti malum in oculis Domini?

20 Et ait Saul ad Samuelem: Immo audivi vocem Domini, et ambulavi in via per quam misit me Dominus, et adduxi Agag regem Amalec, et Amalec interfeci.

21 Tulit autem de præda populus oves et boves, primitias eorum quæ cæsa sunt, ut immolet Domino Deo suo in Galgalis.

22 Et ait Samuel: Numquid vult Dominus holocausta et victimas, et non potius ut obediatur voci Domini? melior est enim obedientia quam victimæ, et auscultare magis quam offerre adipem arietum.

23 Quoniam quasi peccatum ariolandi est, repugnare: et quasi scelus idololatriæ, nolle acquiescere. Pro eo ergo quod abjecisti sermonem Domini, abjecit te Dominus ne sis rex.

24 Dixitque Saul ad Samuelem: Peccavi, quia prævaricatus sum sermonem Domini et verba tua, timens populum, et obediens voci eorum.

25 Sed nunc porta, quæso, peccatum meum, et revertere mecum, ut adorem Dominum.

26 Et ait Samuel ad Saul: Non revertar tecum, quia projecisti sermonem Domini, et projecit te Dominus ne sis rex super Israël.

27 Et conversus est Samuel ut abiret: ille autem apprehendit summitatem pallii ejus, quæ et scissa est.

28 Et ait ad eum Samuel: Scidit Dominus regnum Israël a te hodie, et tradidit illud proximo tuo meliori te.

29 Porro triumphator in Israël non parcet, et pœnitudine non flectetur: neque enim homo est ut agat pœnitentiam.

30 At ille ait: Peccavi: sed nunc honora me coram senioribus populi mei et coram Israël, et revertere mecum, ut adorem Dominum Deum tuum.

31 Reversus ergo Samuel secutus est Saulem: et adoravit Saul Dominum.

32 Dixitque Samuel: Adducite ad me Agag regem Amalec. Et oblatus est ei Agag, pinguissimus et tremens. Et dixit Agag: Siccine separat amara mors?

33 Et ait Samuel: Sicut fecit absque liberis mulieres gladius tuus, sic absque liberis erit inter mulieres mater tua. Et in frustra concidit eum Samuel coram Domino in Galgalis.

34 Abiit autem Samuel in Ramatha: Saul vero ascendit in domum suam in Gabaa.

35 Et non vidit Samuel ultra Saul usque ad diem mortis suæ: verumtamen lugebat Samuel Saulem, quoniam Dominum pœnitebat quod constituisset eum regem super Israël.
