[ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
- 11 As they went up the slope to the city, they R258 found young women going out to draw water and said to them, "Is the seer here?" 12 They answered them and said, "He is; see, F66 he is ahead of you. Hurry now, for he has come into the city today, for the R259 people have a sacrifice on the R260 high place today. 13 "As soon as you enter the city you will find him before he goes up to the high place to eat, for the people will not eat until he comes, because he R261 must bless the sacrifice; afterward those who are invited will eat. Now therefore, go up for you will find him at once." 14 So they went up to the city. As they came into the city, behold, Samuel was coming out toward them to go up to the high place. 15 Now a day before Saul's coming, the R262 LORD had revealed F67 this to Samuel saying, 16 "About this time tomorrow I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin, and you R263 shall anoint him to be prince over My people Israel; and he will deliver My people from the hand of the Philistines. For I R264 have regarded My people, because their cry has come to Me." 17 When Samuel saw Saul, the LORD said F68 to him, "Behold, R265 the man of whom I spoke to you! This one shall rule over My people."
