1 Samuel 10:1-27
1. And then Samuel took a box of oil and poured it upon his head and kissed him and said: the LORD hath anointed thee to be a captain over his inheritance.
2. And now when thou art departed from me, thou shalt meet two men by Rahel's sepulchre in the borders of Benjamin even at Zalezah. And they will say unto thee, the asses which thou wentest to seek, are found see, thy father hath left the care of the Asses and sorroweth for you saying: what shall I do for my son?
3. Then thou shalt go forth from thence and shalt come to the oak of Thabor. And there shalt thou meet three men going to God to Bethel: one carrying three kids: and another carrying three loaves of bread: and the third carrying a bottle of wine.
4. And they will salute thee and give thee two loaves of bread: which thou shalt receive of their hands.
5. After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where the Philistines keep their watch. And when thou art come thither to the city thou shalt meet a company of prophets coming down from the hill, with a psalter, a timbrel, a pipe, and a harp before them, and they prophesying.
6. And the spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.
7. And when these signs are chanced thee, then do what thou hast to do, for God is with thee.
8. And thou shalt also go before me to Gilgal. And behold I will come unto thee to sacrifice burnt sacrifice and peace offerings. Tarry for me seven days till I come to thee and shew thee what thou shalt do.
9. And as soon as he had turned his shoulder to go from Samuel, God gave him another manner of heart, and all those tokens came to pass that same day.

13. And when he had made an end of prophesying, he came to the hill.
14. Saul's father's brother said unto him and his lad: whither went ye? And he answered: to seek the asses, and when we saw that they were nowhere, we went to Samuel.
15. Then said Saul's uncle: tell me what Samuel said unto you?
16. And Saul answered his uncle: he told us that the asses were found. But of the kingdom whereof Samuel spake told he him not.
17. After that Samuel called the people together unto the LORD to Mazphah
18. and said unto the children of Israel: thus sayeth the LORD God of Israel, I brought you out of Egypt, and delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hands of all kingdoms that oppressed you.
19. And ye have this day cast away your God that holp you out of all your adversities and tribulations. And ye have said unto him, make a king over us. Now therefore stand before the LORD by your tribes and your thousands.
20. And when Samuel had brought all the tribes of Israel the tribe of Benjamin was caught.
21. When he had brought the tribe of Benjamin by their kindreds, the kindred of Metri was caught: and Saul the son of Cis was caught. And they sought him: but he could not be found.
22. Then they asked the LORD further: whither the man should come thither. And the LORD answered: behold, he hath hid himself among the stuff.
23. And they ran and fetched him thence. And when he stood among the people, he was higher than any of the people from the shoulders upward.
24. And Samuel said to all the people: there see ye whom the LORD hath chosen and how there is none like him among all the company. And all the people shouted and said: God send the king life.
25. Then Samuel told the people the duty of the kingdom, and wrote it in a book, and laid it up before the LORD, and so sent all the people away, every man to his house.

2. make a covenant with us and we will be thy servants. And Nahas the Ammonite said: hereto will I make a covenant with you, even to thrust out all your right eyes, that I may bring that shame upon all Israel.
3. Then said the elders of Jabes: give us seven days respite that we may send messengers unto all the coasts of Israel. And then if there come no man to help us, we will come out to thee.
4. Then came the messengers to Gabaah where Saul dwelt, and told this tidings in the ears of the people. And all the people lifted up their voices and wept.
5. And behold Saul came following his oxen out of the field, and asked what ailed the people to weep. And they told him the tidings of the men of Jabes.
6. Then came the spirit of God upon Saul, when he heard those tidings, and he was exceeding angry.
7. And took a yoke of oxen and hewed them in pieces, and sent them thorowout all the coasts of Israel by the hands of messengers saying: whosoever cometh not forth after Saul and after Samuel, so shall his oxen be served. Then the fear of the LORD fell upon the people, and they came out as it had been but one man.

9. And they said unto the messengers that came, so say unto the men of Jabes in Gilead: tomorrow by that time the son be hot, ye shall have help. And the messengers came and shewed the men of Jabes, and they were glad.
10. And then the men of Jabes said: tomorrow we will come out unto you, that ye may do with us all that pleaseth you.
11. And on the morrow Saul put the people in three parts. And they came in upon the host in the morning watch, and slew the Ammonites, until the heat of the day. And they that remained, scattered: so that two of them were not left together.

13. But Saul said: there shall no man die this day, for today the LORD hath saved Israel.
14. Then said Samuel unto the people: come and let us go to Gilgal, and renew the kingdom there.
15. And the people went to Gilgal and made Saul king there, before the LORD in Gilgal. And there they offered peace offerings before the LORD. And there Saul and all the people rejoiced exceedingly.
