1 SAMUEL 10:1-16
10:1 Then Samuel took the vial of oil and poured it upon his head, and he kissed him and said, Jehovah anoints you ruler over His inheritance.
10:2 When you depart from me today, you will find two men by Rachel’s tomb in the territory of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will say to you, The donkeys that you went to look for have been found; and now your father has stopped worrying about the donkeys and is worried about you, saying, What shall I do about my son?
10:3 Then you will go on further from there and come to the terebinth of Tabor; and three men will meet you there, going up to God at Bethel, one carrying three kids, and another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a skin of wine.
10:4 And they will greet you and give you two loaves of bread, and you will take them from their hand.
10:5 After that you will come to the hill of God, where the Philistines’ garrison is. And as you come to the city there, you will encounter a group of prophets coming down from the high place, preceded by harp and tambourine and pipe and lyre; and they will be prophesying.
10:6 And the Spirit of Jehovah will rush upon you; and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man.
10:7 And when these signs happen to you, do as you find occasion, for God is with you.
10:8 And you shall go down before me to Gilgal; and behold, I will come down to you to offer up burnt offerings and to sacrifice sacrifices of peace offerings. You shall wait seven days, until I come to you; then I will make known to you what you shall do.
10:9 And so when he turned his back to depart from Samuel, God gave him another heart. And all these signs happened that day.
10:10 And when they came there to the hill, there was the group of prophets, coming to meet him. And the Spirit of God rushed upon him, and he prophesied among them.
10:11 And when all who had known him previously saw that now he was prophesying with the prophets, the people said one to another, What is this that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?
10:12 And someone from there answered and said, And who is their father? Therefore it became a proverb, Is Saul also among the prophets?
10:13 And when he finished prophesying, he came to the high place.
10:14 And Saul’s uncle said to him and his servant, Where did you go? And he said, To look for the donkeys; and when we saw that they were not to be found, we went to Samuel.
10:15 And Saul’s uncle said, Tell me then what Samuel said to you.
10:16 And Saul said to his uncle, He told us clearly that the donkeys had been found. But he did not tell him about the matter of the kingdom that Samuel had spoken of.
