G5252.3 He was head and shoulders G2532 and G1883 [2above G5308 1high] G5228 over G3956 all G3588 the G1093 land.
3 G2532 And G622 [6were lost G3588 1the G3688 2donkeys G* 3of Kish G3588 4the G3962 5father G* 6of Saul]. G2532 And G2036 Kish said G* G4314 to G* Saul G3588 G5207 his son, G1473 G2983 Take G3326 with G4572 yourself G1520 one G3588 of the G3808 servant-lads, G2532 and G450 rise up G2532 and G4198 go G2532 and G2212 seek G3588 the G3688 donkeys!
4 G2532 And G1330 they went G1223 through G3735 mount G* Ephraim. G2532 And G1330 they went G1223 through G3588 the G1093 land G* of Shalitha, G2532 and G3756 they did not G2147 find. G2532 And G1330 they went G1223 through G3588 the G1093 land G* of Shalim, G2532 and G3756 it was not.

5 G1473 And of their G1161 G2064 coming G1519 unto G3588 G* Zuph, G2532 and G* Saul G2036 said G3588 to G3808 his servant-lad G1473 G3588 G3326 with G1473 him, G1204 Come, G2532 for G654 we should return, G3361 lest G447 [2sparing G3588 G3962 1my father] G1473 G4012 concerning G3588 the G3688 donkeys, G5431 should be thoughtful G3588 G4012 concerning G1473 us.
6 G2532 And G2036 [3said G1473 4to him G3588 1the G3808 2servant-lad], G2400 Behold, G1211 indeed G444 a man G2316 of God G1722 is in G3588 G4172 this city, G3778 G2532 and G3588 the G444 man G1741 is honorable, G3956 all G3739 what G302 ever G2980 he should speak, G3854 coming G3918 shall be at hand. G2532 And G3568 now, G4198 we should go G1563 there, G3704 so that G518 he should report G1473 to us G3588 G3598 our way, G1473 G1909 upon G3739 which G4198 we should go G1909 upon G1473 it.
7 G2532 And G2036 Saul said G* G3588 to G3808 his servant-lad G1473 G3588 G3326 with G1473 him, G2532 Yes, G2400 behold, G4198 we shall go. G2532 But G5100 what G1533 shall we carry in G3588 to the G444 man G3588 G2316 of God, G3754 for G3588 the G740 bread loaves G1587 have failed G1537 from out of G3588 G30 our containers, G1473 G2532 and G4183 [2much G3756 1there is not] G1510.2.3 G3326 with G1473 us G3588 G1533 to carry G3588 to the G444 man G3588 G2316 of God G3588 that G5224 exists G1473 to us?
8 G2532 And G4369 [3proceeded G3588 1the G3808 2servant-lad] G611 to answer G3588 G* Saul, G2532 and G2036 said, G2400 Behold, G2147 there is found G1722 in G3588 G5495 my hand G1473 G5067 a fourth G4608.2 shekel G694 of silver; G2532 and G1325 you shall give it G3588 to the G444 man G3588 G2316 of God, G2532 and G518 he shall report G1473 to us G3588 G3598 our way. G1473
9 G2532 And G1715 before G1722 in G* Israel, G3592 thus G3004 said G1538 each G435 man G1722 in G3588 their G4198 going G1905 to ask G3588 G2316 God, G1204 Come, G2532 and G4198 we should go G4314 to G3588 the G991 seer. G3754 For G3588 the G4396 prophet G2564 was called G3588 by the G2992 people G1715 before, G* The G991 Seer.
10 G2532 And G2036 Saul said G* G4314 to G3588 G3808 his servant-lad, G1473 G18 [2 is good G3588 G4487 1your word]. G1473 G1204 Come, G2532 for G4198 we should go. G2532 And G4198 they went G1519 into G3588 the G4172 city G3739 of which G1510.7.3 was G1563 there G3588 the G444 man, G3588 the one G3588 of G2316 God.
11 G1473 In their G305 ascending G3588 the G306.1 ascent G3588 of the G4172 city, G2532 and G1473 they G2147 found G2877 young women G1831 going forth G5200.2 to draw G5204 water. G2532 And G3004 they say G1473 to them, G1487 Is there G1510.2.3 G1778.2 here G3588 the G991 seer?
12 G2532 And G611 [3answered G3588 1the G2877 2young women] G1473 them, G2532 and G2036 they said, G1510.2.3 He is, G2400 behold, G4253 in front G4383 G1473 of you. G5035.1 Hasten! G3754 For G3568 now G2240 he comes G1519 into G3588 the G4172 city, G1223 because of G3588 the G2250 day, G3754 for G2378 a sacrifice G4594 today G3588 for the G2992 people G1722 in G* Bama.
13 G5613 As G302 soon as G1525 you enter G1519 into G3588 the G4172 city, G3779 thus G2147 you shall find G1473 him G1722 in G3588 the G4172 city, G4250 before G305 his ascending G1473 G1519 unto G* Bama G3588 G2068 to eat; G3754 for G3766.2 in no way G2068 should [3eat G3588 1the G2992 2people] G2193 until G3588 G1525 his entering. G1473 G3754 For G3778 this one G2127 blesses G3588 the G2378 sacrifice. G2532 And G3326 after G3778 these things G2068 [3eat G3588 1the G3581 2strangers]. G2532 And G3568 now, G305 ascend! G3754 for G1223 on account of G3588 the G2250 day G2147 you shall find G1473 him.
14 G2532 And G305 they ascend G1519 into G3588 the G4172 city. G1473 And they G1161 G1531 were entering G1519 in G3319 the midst G3588 of the G4172 city, G2532 and G2400 behold, G* Samuel G1831 came forth G1519 for G3588 the G529 meeting G1473 them, G3588 G305 to ascend G1519 unto G* Bama.
15 G2532 And G2962 the lord G601 uncovered G3588 the G5621 ear G* of Samuel G2250 [2day G1520 1one] G1715 before G3588 G2064 [2came G4314 3to G1473 4him G* 1Saul], G3004 saying,
16 G5613 At G3588 G2540 this time G3778 G839 tomorrow G649 I will send G4314 to G1473 you G435 a man G1537 from G1093 the land G* of Benjamin, G2532 and G5548 you shall anoint G1473 him G1519 for G758 ruler G1909 over G3588 G2992 my people G1473 G* Israel, G2532 and G4982 he shall deliver G3588 G2992 my people G1473 G1537 from G5495 the hand G246 of the Philistines. G3754 For G1914 I looked G1909 upon G3588 the G5014 humiliation G3588 G2992 of my people, G1473 G3754 for G2064 [2came G3588 G995 1their yelling] G1473 G4314 to G1473 me.
17 G2532 And G* Samuel G1492 beheld G3588 G* Saul, G2532 and G2962 the lord G611 answered G1473 him, G2400 Behold, G3588 the G444 man G3739 whom G2036 I said G1473 to you, G3778 This one G2677.1 shall rule G1909 over G3588 G2992 my people. G1473
18 G2532 And G4334 Saul came G* G4314 to G* Samuel G1519 in G3319 the midst G3588 of the G4172 city, G2532 and G2036 he said, G518 Report G1211 indeed G1473 to me, G4169 of what G3588 G3624 house G3588 is the G991 seer?
19 G2532 And G611 Samuel answered G* G3588 G* Saul, G2532 and G2036 said, G1473 I G1510.2.1 am he . G305 Ascend G1715 before G1473 me G1519 unto G* Bama, G2532 and G2068 eat G3326 with G1473 me G4594 today! G2532 and G1821 I will send G1473 you G4404 in the morning, G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the things G1722 in G3588 G2588 your heart G1473 G518 I will report G1473 to you.
20 G2532 And G4012 concerning G3588 the G3688 donkeys G3588 G622 being lost G1473 to you G4594 today G5153.1 for three days, G3361 you should not G5087 put G3588 G2588 your heart G1473 G1722 to G1473 them, G3754 for G2147 they are found. G2532 And G5100 what are G3588 the G5611 beautiful things G3588 G* of Israel? G3780 Is it not G1473 to you, G2532 and G3956 to all G3588 the G3624 house G3588 G3962 of your father? G1473
21 G2532 And G611 Saul answered G* G2532 and G2036 said, G3780 [2not G435 3a man G5207 4a son G* 5of a Benjamite G1473 1Am I], G1510.2.1 G3588 of the G3397 lesser G4638.1 chiefdom G1537 of G3588 the G5443 tribes G* of Israel? G2532 And G3588 G3965 my family G1473 G1646 least G3844 of G3956 all G3588 the G3965 families G3588 G* of Benjamin? G2532 And G2444 why G2980 have you spoken G4314 to G1473 me G2596 concerning G3588 G4487 this thing? G3778
22 G2532 And G2983 Samuel took G* G3588 G* Saul G2532 and G3588 G3808 his servant-lad, G1473 G2532 and G1521 he brought G1473 them G1519 into G3588 the G2646 lodging, G2532 and G5087 set G1473 for them G5117 a place G1722 among G4413 the foremost G3588 of the G2564 ones being called -- G5616 about G5144 thirty G435 men.
23 G2532 And G2036 Samuel said G* G3588 to the G3095.4 cook, G1325 Give G1473 to me G3588 the G3310 portion G3739 which G1325 I gave G1473 to you, G3739 which G2036 I told G1473 you G5087 to put G1473 it G3844 by G1473 you.
24 G2532 And G142 [3took G3588 1the G3095.4 2cook] G3588 the G2965.4 hind quarter, G2532 and G3588 the part G1909 upon G1473 it, G2532 and G3908 placed G1473 it G1799 before G* Saul. G2532 And G2036 Samuel said G* G3588 G* to Saul, G2400 Behold, G3588 the G5274.1 leftover; G3908 place G1473 it G1799 before G1473 you, G2532 and G2068 eat! G3754 For G1519 as G3142 a testimony G5087 it is placed G1473 for you G3844 over G3588 the G2992 people -- G608.3 pull it off! G2532 And G2068 Saul ate G* G3326 with G* Samuel G1722 in G3588 G2250 that day. G1565
25 G2532 And G2597 he went down G1537 from G3588 G* Bama G1519 into G3588 the G4172 city. G2532 And G1294.2 they spread carpets G3588 G* for Saul G1909 upon G3588 the G1430 roof, G2532 and G2837 he went to bed.
26 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G5613 as G305 [3ascended G3588 1the G3722 2dawn], G2532 that G2564 Samuel called G* G3588 to G* Saul G1909 upon G3588 the G1430 roof, G3004 saying, G450 Rise up! G2532 and G1821 I shall send G1473 you out. G2532 And G450 Saul rose up, G* G2532 and G1831 [4went forth G1473 1he G2532 2and G* 3Samuel] G2193 unto G1854 outside.
27 G1473 And as they G2597 were going down G1519 into G206 the uttermost part G3588 of the G4172 city, G2532 that G* Samuel G2036 said G3588 G* to Saul, G2036 Speak G3588 to the G3808 young man, G2532 and G1330 let him go through G1715 in front of G1473 us! G2532 And G1473 you G2476 stand G5602 here G4594 today, G2532 and G191 hear G4487 the word G2316 of God!
