Chapter 9

  1. 1. Now there was a man
    H376
    of Benjamin,
    H1144
    whose name
    H8034
    was Kish,
    H7027
    the son
    H1121
    of Abiel,
    H22
    the son
    H1121
    of Zeror,
    H6872
    the son
    H1121
    of Bechorath,
    H1064
    the son
    H1121
    of Aphiah,
    H647
    a Benjamite,
    H1145
    a mighty
    H1368
    man
    H376
    of power.
    H2428
  2. 2. And he had a son,
    H1121
    whose name
    H8034
    was Saul,
    H7586
    a choice young man,
    H970
    and a goodly:
    H2896
    and there was not among the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    a goodlier
    H2896
    person
    H376
    than he: from his shoulders
    H7926
    and upward
    H4605
    he was higher
    H1364
    than any of the people.
    H5971
  3. 3. And the asses
    H860
    of Kish
    H7027
    Saul's
    H7586
    father
    H1
    were lost.
    H6
    And Kish
    H7027
    said
    H559
    to Saul
    H7586
    his son,
    H1121
    Take
    H3947
    now one
    H259
    of the servants
    H5288
    with thee, and arise,
    H6965
    go
    H3212
    seek
    H1245
    the asses.
    H860
  4. 4. And he passed through
    H5674
    mount
    H2022
    Ephraim,
    H669
    and passed through
    H5674
    the land
    H776
    of Shalisha,
    H8031
    but they found
    H4672
    them not: then they passed through
    H5674
    the land
    H776
    of Shalim,
    H8171
    and there they were not: and he passed through
    H5674
    the land
    H776
    of the Benjamites,
    H1145
    but they found
    H4672
    them not.
  5. 5. And when they were come
    H935
    to the land
    H776
    of Zuph,
    H6689
    Saul
    H7586
    said
    H559
    to his servant
    H5288
    that was with him, Come,
    H3212
    and let us return;
    H7725
    lest my father
    H1
    leave
    H2308
    caring for the asses,
    H860
    and take thought
    H1672
    for us.
  6. 6. And he said
    H559
    unto him, Behold now, there is in this city
    H5892
    a man
    H376
    of God,
    H430
    and he is an honourable
    H3513
    man;
    H376
    all that he saith
    H1696
    cometh
    H935
    surely to pass:
    H935
    now let us go
    H3212
    thither; peradventure he can shew
    H5046
    us our way
    H1870
    that we should go.
    H1980
  7. 7. Then said
    H559
    Saul
    H7586
    to his servant,
    H5288
    But, behold, if we go,
    H3212
    what shall we bring
    H935
    the man?
    H376
    for the bread
    H3899
    is spent
    H235
    in our vessels,
    H3627
    and there is not a present
    H8670
    to bring
    H935
    to the man
    H376
    of God:
    H430
    what have we?
  8. 8. And the servant
    H5288
    answered
    H6030
    Saul
    H7586
    again,
    H3254
    and said,
    H559
    Behold, I have
    H4672
    here at hand
    H3027
    the fourth part
    H7253
    of a shekel
    H8255
    of silver:
    H3701
    that will I give
    H5414
    to the man
    H376
    of God,
    H430
    to tell
    H5046
    us our way.
    H1870
  9. 9. (Beforetime
    H6440
    in Israel,
    H3478
    when a man
    H376
    went
    H3212
    to enquire
    H1875
    of God,
    H430
    thus he spake,
    H559
    Come,
    H3212
    and let us go
    H3212
    to the seer:
    H7200
    for he that is now
    H3117
    called a Prophet
    H5030
    was beforetime
    H6440
    called
    H7121
    a Seer.)
    H7200
  10. 10. Then said
    H1697
    Saul
    H7586
    to his servant,
    H5288
    Well
    H2896
    said;
    H559
    come,
    H3212
    let us go.
    H3212
    So they went
    H3212
    unto the city
    H5892
    where the man
    H376
    of God
    H430
    was.
  11. 11. And as they went up
    H5927
    the hill
    H4608
    to the city,
    H5892
    they found
    H4672
    young maidens
    H5291
    going out
    H3318
    to draw
    H7579
    water,
    H4325
    and said
    H559
    unto them, Is
    H3426
    the seer
    H7200
    here?
  12. 12. And they answered
    H6030
    them, and said,
    H559
    He is;
    H3426
    behold, he is before
    H6440
    you: make haste
    H4116
    now, for he came
    H935
    to day
    H3117
    to the city;
    H5892
    for there is a sacrifice
    H2077
    of the people
    H5971
    to day
    H3117
    in the high place:
    H1116
  13. 13. As soon as ye be come
    H935
    into the city,
    H5892
    ye shall straightway
    H3651
    find
    H4672
    him, before he go up
    H5927
    to the high place
    H1116
    to eat:
    H398
    for the people
    H5971
    will not eat
    H398
    until he come,
    H935
    because he doth bless
    H1288
    the sacrifice;
    H2077
    and afterwards
    H3651
    they
    H310
    eat
    H398
    that be bidden.
    H7121
    Now therefore get you up;
    H5927
    for about this time
    H3117
    ye shall find
    H4672
    him.
  14. 14. And they went up
    H5927
    into
    H8432
    the city:
    H5892
    and when they were come
    H935
    into the city,
    H5892
    behold, Samuel
    H8050
    came out
    H3318
    against
    H7125
    them, for to go up
    H5927
    to the high place.
    H1116
  15. 15. Now the LORD
    H3068
    had told
    H1540
    Samuel
    H8050
    in his ear
    H241
    a
    H259
    day
    H3117
    before
    H6440
    Saul
    H7586
    came,
    H935
    saying,
    H559
  16. 16. To morrow
    H4279
    about this time
    H6256
    I will send
    H7971
    thee a man
    H376
    out of the land
    H776
    of Benjamin,
    H1144
    and thou shalt anoint
    H4886
    him to be captain
    H5057
    over my people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    that he may save
    H3467
    my people
    H5971
    out of the hand
    H3027
    of the Philistines:
    H6430
    for I have looked
    H7200
    upon my people,
    H5971
    because their cry
    H6818
    is come
    H935
    unto me.
  17. 17. And when Samuel
    H8050
    saw
    H7200
    Saul,
    H7586
    the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H6030
    unto him, Behold the man
    H376
    whom I spake
    H559
    to thee of! this same shall reign
    H6113
    over my people.
    H5971
  18. 18. Then Saul
    H7586
    drew near
    H5066
    to Samuel
    H8050
    in
    H8432
    the gate,
    H8179
    and said,
    H559
    Tell
    H5046
    me, I pray thee, where
    H335
    the seer's
    H7200
    house
    H1004
    is.
  19. 19. And Samuel
    H8050
    answered
    H6030
    Saul,
    H7586
    and said,
    H559
    I am the seer:
    H7200
    go up
    H5927
    before
    H6440
    me unto the high place;
    H1116
    for ye shall eat
    H398
    with me to day,
    H3117
    and to morrow
    H1242
    I will let thee go,
    H7971
    and will tell
    H5046
    thee all that is in thine heart.
    H3824
  20. 20. And as for thine asses
    H860
    that were lost
    H6
    three
    H7969
    days
    H3117
    ago,
    H3117
    set
    H7760
    not thy mind
    H3820
    on them; for they are found.
    H4672
    And on whom is all the desire
    H2532
    of Israel?
    H3478
    Is it not on thee, and on all thy father's
    H1
    house?
    H1004
  21. 21. And Saul
    H7586
    answered
    H6030
    and said,
    H559
    Am not I a Benjamite,
    H1145
    of the smallest
    H6996
    of the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel?
    H3478
    and my family
    H4940
    the least
    H6810
    of all the families
    H4940
    of the tribe
    H7626
    of Benjamin?
    H1144
    wherefore then speakest
    H1696
    thou so
    H1697
    to me?
  22. 22. And Samuel
    H8050
    took
    H3947
    Saul
    H7586
    and his servant,
    H5288
    and brought
    H935
    them into the parlour,
    H3957
    and made them sit
    H5414
    in the chiefest
    H7218
    place
    H4725
    among them that were bidden,
    H7121
    which were about thirty
    H7970
    persons.
    H376
  23. 23. And Samuel
    H8050
    said
    H559
    unto the cook,
    H2876
    Bring
    H5414
    the portion
    H4490
    which I gave
    H5414
    thee, of which I said
    H559
    unto thee, Set
    H7760
    it by thee.
  24. 24. And the cook
    H2876
    took up
    H7311
    the shoulder,
    H7785
    and that which was upon it, and set
    H7760
    it before
    H6440
    Saul.
    H7586
    And Samuel said,
    H559
    Behold that which is left!
    H7604
    set
    H7760
    it before
    H6440
    thee, and eat:
    H398
    for unto this time
    H4150
    hath it been kept
    H8104
    for thee since I said,
    H559
    I have invited
    H7121
    the people.
    H5971
    So Saul
    H7586
    did eat
    H398
    with Samuel
    H8050
    that day.
    H3117
  25. 25. And when they were come down
    H3381
    from the high place
    H1116
    into the city,
    H5892
    Samuel communed
    H1696
    with Saul
    H7586
    upon the top of the house.
    H1406
  26. 26. And they arose early:
    H7925
    and it came to pass about the spring
    H5927
    of the day,
    H7837
    that Samuel
    H8050
    called
    H7121
    Saul
    H7586
    to the top of the house,
    H1406
    saying,
    H559
    Up,
    H6965
    that I may send thee away.
    H7971
    And Saul
    H7586
    arose,
    H6965
    and they went out
    H3318
    both
    H8147
    of them, he and Samuel,
    H8050
    abroad.
    H2351
  27. 27. And as they were going down
    H3381
    to the end
    H7097
    of the city,
    H5892
    Samuel
    H8050
    said
    H559
    to Saul,
    H7586
    Bid
    H559
    the servant
    H5288
    pass on
    H5674
    before
    H6440
    us, (and he passed on,)
    H5674
    but stand
    H5975
    thou still a while,
    H3117
    that I may shew
    H8085
    thee the word
    H1697
    of God.
