First Samuel 10

10:1 Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured [it] upon his
 head, and kissed him, and said, [Is it] not because the LORD
 hath anointed thee [to be] captain over his inheritance?
10:2 When thou hast departed from me to-day, then thou shalt
 find two men by Rachel's sepulcher in the border of Benjamin at
 Zelzah; and they will say to thee, The asses which thou wentest
 to seek are found: and lo, thy father hath left the care of the
 asses, and sorroweth for you, saying, What shall I do for my
10:3 Then shalt thou go on forward from thence, and thou shalt
 come to the plain of Tabor, and there shall meet thee three men
 going up to God to Beth-el, one carrying three kids, and
 another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a
 bottle of wine:
10:4 And they will salute thee, and give thee two [loaves] of
 bread; which thou shalt receive from their hands.
10:5 After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where [is]
 the garrison of the Philistines: and it shall come to pass,
 when thou hast come thither to the city, that thou shalt meet a
 company of prophets coming down from the high place with a
 psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a harp before them; and
 they will prophesy:
10:6 And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou
 shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.
10:7 And let it be, when these signs have come to thee, [that]
 thou do as occasion shall serve thee; for God [is] with thee.
10:8 And thou shalt go down before me to Gilgal; and behold, I
 will come down to thee, to offer burnt-offerings, [and] to
 sacrifice sacrifices of peace-offerings: seven days shalt thou
 tarry, till I come to thee, and show thee what thou shalt do.
10:9 And it was [so], that when he had turned his back to go
 from Samuel, God gave him another heart: and all those signs
 came to pass that day.
10:10 And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company
 of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and
 he prophesied among them.
10:11 And it came to pass when all that formerly knew him saw,
 that, behold, he prophesied among the prophets, then the people
 said one to another, What [is] this [that] hath come to the son
 of Kish? [Is] Saul also among the prophets?
10:12 And one of the same place answered and said, But who [is]
 their father? Therefore it became a proverb, [Is] Saul also
 among the prophets?
10:13 And when he had made an end of prophesying, he came to the
 high place.
10:14 And Saul's uncle said to him and to his servant, Whither
 went ye? And he said, To seek the asses: and when we saw that
 [they were] no where, we came to Samuel.
10:15 And Saul's uncle said, Tell me, I pray thee, What Samuel
 said to you.
10:16 And Saul said to his uncle, He told us plainly that the
 asses were found. But of the matter of the kingdom, of which
 Samuel spoke, he told him not.
10:17 And Samuel called the people together to the LORD to
10:18 And said to the children of Israel, Thus saith the LORD
 God of Israel, I brought Israel out of Egypt, and delivered you
 out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all
 kingdoms, [and] of them that oppressed you:
10:19 And ye have this day rejected your God, who himself saved
 you out of all your adversities, and your tribulations; and ye
 have said to him, [No], but set a king over us. Now therefore
 present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes, and by your
10:20 And when Samuel had caused all the tribes of Israel to
 come near, the tribe of Benjamin was taken.
10:21 When he had caused the tribe of Benjamin to come near by
 their families, the family of Matri was taken, and Saul the son
 of Kish was taken: and when they sought him, he could not be
10:22 Therefore they inquired of the LORD further, if the man
 would yet come thither. And the LORD answered, Behold, he hath
 hid himself among the stuff.
10:23 And they ran and brought him thence: and when he stood
 among the people, he was higher than any of the people from his
 shoulders and upward.
10:24 And Samuel said to all the people, See ye him whom the
 LORD hath chosen, that [there is] none like him among all the
 people? And all the people shouted, and said, God save the
10:25 Then Samuel told the people the manner of the kingdom, and
 wrote [it] in a book, and laid [it] up before the LORD. And
 Samuel sent all the people away, every man to his house.
10:26 And Saul also went home to Gibeah; and there went with him
 a band of men, whose hearts God had touched.
10:27 But the children of Belial said, How shall this man save
 us? And they despised him, and brought him no presents. But he
 held his peace.
