10 When Saul and his servant arrived at Gibeah, they saw the prophets coming toward them.

11 When his friends heard about it, they exclaimed, "What? Is Saul a prophet? How did the son of Kish become a prophet?" 11 When all those who had formerly known him saw him prophesying with the prophets, they asked each other, "What is this that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?"
12 But one of the neighbors responded, "It doesn't matter who his father is; anyone can become a prophet." So that is the origin of the saying "Is Saul a prophet?" 12 A man who lived there answered, "And who is their father?" So it became a saying: "Is Saul also among the prophets?"

So we went to the prophet Samuel to ask him where they were." 14 Now Saul's uncle asked him and his servant, "Where have you been?" "Looking for the donkeys," he said. "But when we saw they were not to be found, we went to Samuel."
15 "Oh? And what did he say?" his uncle asked. 15 Saul's uncle said, "Tell me what Samuel said to you."
16 "He said the donkeys had been found," Saul replied. But Saul didn't tell his uncle that Samuel had anointed him to be king. 16 Saul replied, "He assured us that the donkeys had been found." But he did not tell his uncle what Samuel had said about the kingship.
17 Later Samuel called all the people of Israel to meet before the LORD at Mizpah. 17 Samuel summoned the people of Israel to the LORD at Mizpah
