Chapter 16

  1. 1. And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto Samuel,
    H8050
    How long wilt thou mourn
    H56
    for Saul,
    H7586
    seeing I have rejected
    H3988
    him from reigning
    H4427
    over Israel?
    H3478
    fill
    H4390
    thine horn
    H7161
    with oil,
    H8081
    and go,
    H3212
    I will send
    H7971
    thee to Jesse
    H3448
    the Bethlehemite:
    H1022
    for I have provided
    H7200
    me a king
    H4428
    among his sons.
    H1121
  2. 2. And Samuel
    H8050
    said,
    H559
    How can I go?
    H3212
    if Saul
    H7586
    hear
    H8085
    it, he will kill
    H2026
    me. And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    Take
    H3947
    an heifer
    H5697
    with
    H1241
    thee,
    H3027
    and say,
    H559
    I am come
    H935
    to sacrifice
    H2076
    to the LORD.
    H3068
  3. 3. And call
    H7121
    Jesse
    H3448
    to the sacrifice,
    H2077
    and I will shew
    H3045
    thee what thou shalt do:
    H6213
    and thou shalt anoint
    H4886
    unto me him whom I name
    H559
    unto thee.
  4. 4. And Samuel
    H8050
    did
    H6213
    that which the LORD
    H3068
    spake,
    H1696
    and came
    H935
    to Bethlehem.
    H1035
    And the elders
    H2205
    of the town
    H5892
    trembled
    H2729
    at his coming,
    H7125
    and said,
    H559
    Comest
    H935
    thou peaceably?
    H7965
  5. 5. And he said,
    H559
    Peaceably:
    H7965
    I am come
    H935
    to sacrifice
    H2076
    unto the LORD:
    H3068
    sanctify
    H6942
    yourselves, and come
    H935
    with me to the sacrifice.
    H2077
    And he sanctified
    H6942
    Jesse
    H3448
    and his sons,
    H1121
    and called
    H7121
    them to the sacrifice.
    H2077
  6. 6. And it came to pass, when they were come,
    H935
    that he looked
    H7200
    on Eliab,
    H446
    and said,
    H559
    Surely the LORD'S
    H3068
    anointed
    H4899
    is before him.
  7. 7. But the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto Samuel,
    H8050
    Look
    H5027
    not on his countenance,
    H4758
    or on the height
    H1364
    of his stature;
    H6967
    because I have refused
    H3988
    him: for the LORD seeth not as man
    H120
    seeth;
    H7200
    for man
    H120
    looketh
    H7200
    on the outward appearance,
    H5869
    but the LORD
    H3068
    looketh
    H7200
    on the heart.
    H3824
  8. 8. Then Jesse
    H3448
    called
    H7121
    Abinadab,
    H41
    and made him pass
    H5674
    before
    H6440
    Samuel.
    H8050
    And he said,
    H559
    Neither hath the LORD
    H3068
    chosen
    H977
    this.
  9. 9. Then Jesse
    H3448
    made Shammah
    H8048
    to pass by.
    H5674
    And he said,
    H559
    Neither hath the LORD
    H3068
    chosen
    H977
    this.
  10. 10. Again, Jesse
    H3448
    made seven
    H7651
    of his sons
    H1121
    to pass
    H5674
    before
    H6440
    Samuel.
    H8050
    And Samuel
    H8050
    said
    H559
    unto Jesse,
    H3448
    The LORD
    H3068
    hath not chosen
    H977
    these.
  11. 11. And Samuel
    H8050
    said
    H559
    unto Jesse,
    H3448
    Are here all
    H8552
    thy children?
    H5288
    And he said,
    H559
    There remaineth
    H7604
    yet the youngest,
    H6996
    and, behold, he keepeth
    H7462
    the sheep.
    H6629
    And Samuel
    H8050
    said
    H559
    unto Jesse,
    H3448
    Send
    H7971
    and fetch
    H3947
    him: for we will not sit down
    H5437
    till he come
    H935
    hither.
    H6311
  12. 12. And he sent,
    H7971
    and brought him in.
    H935
    Now he was ruddy,
    H132
    and withal
    H5973
    of a beautiful
    H3303
    countenance,
    H5869
    and goodly
    H2896
    to look to.
    H7210
    And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    Arise,
    H6965
    anoint
    H4886
    him: for this is he.
  13. 13. Then Samuel
    H8050
    took
    H3947
    the horn
    H7161
    of oil,
    H8081
    and anointed
    H4886
    him in the midst
    H7130
    of his brethren:
    H251
    and the Spirit
    H7307
    of the LORD
    H3068
    came
    H6743
    upon David
    H1732
    from that day
    H3117
    forward.
    H4605
    So Samuel
    H8050
    rose up,
    H6965
    and went
    H3212
    to Ramah.
    H7414
  14. 14. But the Spirit
    H7307
    of the LORD
    H3068
    departed
    H5493
    from Saul,
    H7586
    and an evil
    H7451
    spirit
    H7307
    from the LORD
    H3068
    troubled
    H1204
    him.
  15. 15. And Saul's
    H7586
    servants
    H5650
    said
    H559
    unto him, Behold now, an evil
    H7451
    spirit
    H7307
    from God
    H430
    troubleth
    H1204
    thee.
  16. 16. Let our lord
    H113
    now command
    H559
    thy servants,
    H5650
    which are before
    H6440
    thee, to seek out
    H1245
    a man,
    H376
    who is a cunning
    H3045
    player
    H5059
    on an harp:
    H3658
    and it shall come to pass, when the evil
    H7451
    spirit
    H7307
    from God
    H430
    is upon thee, that he shall play
    H5059
    with his hand,
    H3027
    and thou shalt be well.
    H2895
  17. 17. And Saul
    H7586
    said
    H559
    unto his servants,
    H5650
    Provide
    H7200
    me now a man
    H376
    that can play
    H5059
    well,
    H3190
    and bring
    H935
    him to me.
  18. 18. Then answered
    H6030
    one
    H259
    of the servants,
    H5288
    and said,
    H559
    Behold, I have seen
    H7200
    a son
    H1121
    of Jesse
    H3448
    the Bethlehemite,
    H1022
    that is cunning
    H3045
    in playing,
    H5059
    and a mighty
    H1368
    valiant man,
    H2428
    and a man
    H376
    of war,
    H4421
    and prudent
    H995
    in matters,
    H1697
    and a comely
    H8389
    person,
    H376
    and the LORD
    H3068
    is with him.
  19. 19. Wherefore Saul
    H7586
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    unto Jesse,
    H3448
    and said,
    H559
    Send
    H7971
    me David
    H1732
    thy son,
    H1121
    which is with the sheep.
    H6629
  20. 20. And Jesse
    H3448
    took
    H3947
    an ass
    H2543
    laden with bread,
    H3899
    and a bottle
    H4997
    of wine,
    H3196
    and a
    H259
    kid,
    H5795
    H1423
    and sent
    H7971
    them by
    H3027
    David
    H1732
    his son
    H1121
    unto Saul.
    H7586
  21. 21. And David
    H1732
    came
    H935
    to Saul,
    H7586
    and stood
    H5975
    before
    H6440
    him: and he loved
    H157
    him greatly;
    H3966
    and he became his armourbearer.
    H5375
    H3627
  22. 22. And Saul
    H7586
    sent
    H7971
    to Jesse,
    H3448
    saying,
    H559
    Let David,
    H1732
    I pray thee, stand
    H5975
    before
    H6440
    me; for he hath found
    H4672
    favour
    H2580
    in my sight.
    H5869
  23. 23. And it came to pass, when the evil spirit
    H7307
    from God
    H430
    was upon Saul,
    H7586
    that David
    H1732
    took
    H3947
    an harp,
    H3658
    and played
    H5059
    with his hand:
    H3027
    so Saul
    H7586
    was refreshed,
    H7304
    and was well,
    H2895
    and the evil
    H7451
    spirit
    H7307
    departed
    H5493
    from him.
