Context6Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you mightily, and you shall prophesy with them and be changed into another man. 7It shall be when these signs come to you, do for yourself what the occasion requires, for God is with you. 8And you shall go down before me to Gilgal; and behold, I will come down to you to offer burnt offerings and sacrifice peace offerings. You shall wait seven days until I come to you and show you what you should do.
9Then it happened when he turned his back to leave Samuel, God changed his heart; and all those signs came about on that day. 10When they came to the hill there, behold, a group of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came upon him mightily, so that he prophesied among them. 11It came about, when all who knew him previously saw that he prophesied now with the prophets, that the people said to one another, What has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets? 12A man there said, Now, who is their father? Therefore it became a proverb: Is Saul also among the prophets? 13When he had finished prophesying, he came to the high place.
14Now Sauls uncle said to him and his servant, Where did you go? And he said, To look for the donkeys. When we saw that they could not be found, we went to Samuel. 15Sauls uncle said, Please tell me what Samuel said to you. 16So Saul said to his uncle, He told us plainly that the donkeys had been found. But he did not tell him about the matter of the kingdom which Samuel had mentioned.
Saul Publicly Chosen King
17Thereafter Samuel called the people together to the LORD at Mizpah; 18and he said to the sons of Israel, Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, I brought Israel up from Egypt, and I delivered you from the hand of the Egyptians and from the power of all the kingdoms that were oppressing you. 19But you have today rejected your God, who delivers you from all your calamities and your distresses; yet you have said, No, but set a king over us! Now therefore, present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes and by your clans.
20Thus Samuel brought all the tribes of Israel near, and the tribe of Benjamin was taken by lot. 21Then he brought the tribe of Benjamin near by its families, and the Matrite family was taken. And Saul the son of Kish was taken; but when they looked for him, he could not be found. 22Therefore they inquired further of the LORD, Has the man come here yet? So the LORD said, Behold, he is hiding himself by the baggage. 23So they ran and took him from there, and when he stood among the people, he was taller than any of the people from his shoulders upward. 24Samuel said to all the people, Do you see him whom the LORD has chosen? Surely there is no one like him among all the people. So all the people shouted and said, Long live the king!
25Then Samuel told the people the ordinances of the kingdom, and wrote them in the book and placed it before the LORD. And Samuel sent all the people away, each one to his house. 26Saul also went to his house at Gibeah; and the valiant men whose hearts God had touched went with him. 27But certain worthless men said, How can this one deliver us? And they despised him and did not bring him any present. But he kept silent.
