Chapter 28

  1. 1. And it came to pass in those days,
    H3117
    that the Philistines
    H6430
    gathered
    H6908
    their armies
    H4264
    together
    H6908
    for warfare,
    H6635
    to fight
    H3898
    with Israel.
    H3478
    And Achish
    H397
    said
    H559
    unto David,
    H1732
    Know
    H3045
    thou assuredly,
    H3045
    that thou shalt go out
    H3318
    with me to battle,
    H4264
    thou and thy men.
    H582
  2. 2. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    to Achish,
    H397
    Surely
    H3651
    thou shalt know
    H3045
    what thy servant
    H5650
    can do.
    H6213
    And Achish
    H397
    said
    H559
    to David,
    H1732
    Therefore will I make
    H7760
    thee keeper
    H8104
    of mine head
    H7218
    for ever.
    H3117
  3. 3. Now Samuel
    H8050
    was dead,
    H4191
    and all Israel
    H3478
    had lamented
    H5594
    him, and buried
    H6912
    him in Ramah,
    H7414
    even in his own city.
    H5892
    And Saul
    H7586
    had put away
    H5493
    those that had familiar spirits,
    H178
    and the wizards,
    H3049
    out of the land.
    H776
  4. 4. And the Philistines
    H6430
    gathered themselves together,
    H6908
    and came
    H935
    and pitched
    H2583
    in Shunem:
    H7766
    and Saul
    H7586
    gathered
    H6908
    all Israel
    H3478
    together,
    H6908
    and they pitched
    H2583
    in Gilboa.
    H1533
  5. 5. And when Saul
    H7586
    saw
    H7200
    the host
    H4264
    of the Philistines,
    H6430
    he was afraid,
    H3372
    and his heart
    H3820
    greatly
    H3966
    trembled.
    H2729
  6. 6. And when Saul
    H7586
    enquired
    H7592
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    the LORD
    H3068
    answered
    H6030
    him not, neither by dreams,
    H2472
    nor by Urim,
    H224
    nor by prophets.
    H5030
  7. 7. Then said
    H559
    Saul
    H7586
    unto his servants,
    H5650
    Seek
    H1245
    me a woman
    H802
    that hath
    H1172
    a familiar spirit,
    H178
    that I may go
    H3212
    to her, and enquire
    H1875
    of her. And his servants
    H5650
    said
    H559
    to him, Behold, there is a woman
    H802
    that hath
    H1172
    a familiar spirit
    H178
    at Endor.
    H5874
  8. 8. And Saul
    H7586
    disguised
    H2664
    himself, and put on
    H3847
    other
    H312
    raiment,
    H899
    and he went,
    H3212
    and two
    H8147
    men
    H582
    with him, and they came
    H935
    to the woman
    H802
    by night:
    H3915
    and he said,
    H559
    I pray thee, divine
    H7080
    unto me by the familiar spirit,
    H178
    and bring me him up,
    H5927
    whom I shall name
    H559
    unto thee.
  9. 9. And the woman
    H802
    said
    H559
    unto him, Behold, thou knowest
    H3045
    what Saul
    H7586
    hath done,
    H6213
    how he hath cut off
    H3772
    those that have familiar spirits,
    H178
    and the wizards,
    H3049
    out of the land:
    H776
    wherefore then layest thou a snare
    H5367
    for my life,
    H5315
    to cause me to die?
    H4191
  10. 10. And Saul
    H7586
    sware
    H7650
    to her by the LORD,
    H3068
    saying,
    H559
    As the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    there shall
    H518
    no punishment
    H5771
    happen
    H7136
    to thee for this thing.
    H1697
  11. 11. Then said
    H559
    the woman,
    H802
    Whom shall I bring up
    H5927
    unto thee? And he said,
    H559
    Bring me up
    H5927
    Samuel.
    H8050
  12. 12. And when the woman
    H802
    saw
    H7200
    Samuel,
    H8050
    she cried
    H2199
    with a loud
    H1419
    voice:
    H6963
    and the woman
    H802
    spake
    H559
    to Saul,
    H7586
    saying,
    H559
    Why hast thou deceived
    H7411
    me? for thou art Saul.
    H7586
  13. 13. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto her, Be not afraid:
    H3372
    for what sawest
    H7200
    thou? And the woman
    H802
    said
    H559
    unto Saul,
    H7586
    I saw
    H7200
    gods
    H430
    ascending
    H5927
    out of the earth.
    H776
  14. 14. And he said
    H559
    unto her, What form
    H8389
    is he of? And she said,
    H559
    An old
    H2205
    man
    H376
    cometh up;
    H5927
    and he is covered
    H5844
    with a mantle.
    H4598
    And Saul
    H7586
    perceived
    H3045
    that it was Samuel,
    H8050
    and he stooped
    H6915
    with his face
    H639
    to the ground,
    H776
    and bowed
    H7812
    himself.
  15. 15. And Samuel
    H8050
    said
    H559
    to Saul,
    H7586
    Why hast thou disquieted
    H7264
    me, to bring me up?
    H5927
    And Saul
    H7586
    answered,
    H559
    I am sore
    H3966
    distressed;
    H6887
    for the Philistines
    H6430
    make war
    H3898
    against me, and God
    H430
    is departed
    H5493
    from me, and answereth
    H6030
    me no more, neither by
    H3027
    prophets,
    H5030
    nor by dreams:
    H2472
    therefore I have called
    H7121
    thee, that thou mayest make known
    H3045
    unto me what I shall do.
    H6213
  16. 16. Then said
    H559
    Samuel,
    H8050
    Wherefore then dost thou ask
    H7592
    of me, seeing the LORD
    H3068
    is departed
    H5493
    from thee, and is become thine enemy?
    H6145
  17. 17. And the LORD
    H3068
    hath done
    H6213
    to him, as he spake
    H1696
    by me:
    H3027
    for the LORD
    H3068
    hath rent
    H7167
    the kingdom
    H4467
    out of thine hand,
    H3027
    and given
    H5414
    it to thy neighbour,
    H7453
    even to David:
    H1732
  18. 18. Because
    H834
    thou obeyedst
    H8085
    not the voice
    H6963
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    nor executedst
    H6213
    his fierce
    H2740
    wrath
    H639
    upon Amalek,
    H6002
    therefore hath the LORD
    H3068
    done
    H6213
    this thing
    H1697
    unto thee this day.
    H3117
  19. 19. Moreover the LORD
    H3068
    will also deliver
    H5414
    Israel
    H3478
    with thee into the hand
    H3027
    of the Philistines:
    H6430
    and to morrow
    H4279
    shalt thou and thy sons
    H1121
    be with me: the LORD
    H3068
    also shall deliver
    H5414
    the host
    H4264
    of Israel
    H3478
    into the hand
    H3027
    of the Philistines.
    H6430
  20. 20. Then Saul
    H7586
    fell
    H5307
    straightway
    H4116
    all
    H4393
    along
    H6967
    on the earth,
    H776
    and was sore
    H3966
    afraid,
    H3372
    because of the words
    H1697
    of Samuel:
    H8050
    and there was no strength
    H3581
    in him; for he had eaten
    H398
    no bread
    H3899
    all the day,
    H3117
    nor all the night.
    H3915
  21. 21. And the woman
    H802
    came
    H935
    unto Saul,
    H7586
    and saw
    H7200
    that he was sore
    H3966
    troubled,
    H926
    and said
    H559
    unto him, Behold, thine handmaid
    H8198
    hath obeyed
    H8085
    thy voice,
    H6963
    and I have put
    H7760
    my life
    H5315
    in my hand,
    H3709
    and have hearkened
    H8085
    unto thy words
    H1697
    which thou spakest
    H1696
    unto me.
  22. 22. Now therefore, I pray thee, hearken
    H8085
    thou also unto the voice
    H6963
    of thine handmaid,
    H8198
    and let me set
    H7760
    a morsel
    H6595
    of bread
    H3899
    before
    H6440
    thee; and eat,
    H398
    that thou mayest have strength,
    H3581
    when thou goest
    H3212
    on thy way.
    H1870
  23. 23. But he refused,
    H3985
    and said,
    H559
    I will not eat.
    H398
    But his servants,
    H5650
    together with the woman,
    H802
    compelled
    H6555
    him; and he hearkened
    H8085
    unto their voice.
    H6963
    So he arose
    H6965
    from the earth,
    H776
    and sat
    H3427
    upon the bed.
    H4296
  24. 24. And the woman
    H802
    had a fat
    H4770
    calf
    H5695
    in the house;
    H1004
    and she hasted,
    H4116
    and killed
    H2076
    it, and took
    H3947
    flour,
    H7058
    and kneaded
    H3888
    it, and did bake
    H644
    unleavened bread
    H4682
    thereof:
  25. 25. And she brought
    H5066
    it before
    H6440
    Saul,
    H7586
    and before
    H6440
    his servants;
    H5650
    and they did eat.
    H398
    Then they rose up,
    H6965
    and went away
    H3212
    that night.
