1 Samuel 10:9-19

NIRV 9 As Saul turned to leave Samuel, God changed Saul's heart. All of those things happened that day. NIV 9 As Saul turned to leave Samuel, God changed Saul's heart, and all these signs were fulfilled that day. NIRV 10 When Saul and his servant arrived at Gibeah, a group of prophets met Saul. Then the Spirit of God came on him with power. He prophesied along with them. NIV 10 When they arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him; the Spirit of God came upon him in power, and he joined in their prophesying. NIRV 11 Those who had known Saul before saw him prophesying with the prophets. They asked one another, "What has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also one of the prophets?" NIV 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?" NIRV 12 A man who lived in Gibeah answered, "Yes, he is. In fact, he's their leader." That's why people say, "Is Saul also one of the prophets?" NIV 12 A man who lived there answered, "And who is their father?" So it became a saying: "Is Saul also among the prophets?" NIRV 13 After Saul stopped prophesying, he went to the high place to worship. NIV 13 After Saul stopped prophesying, he went to the high place. NIRV 14 Later, Saul's uncle spoke to him and his servant. He asked, "Where have you been?" "Looking for the donkeys," he said. "But we couldn't find them. So we went to Samuel." NIV 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." NIRV 15 Saul's uncle said, "Tell me what Samuel said to you." NIV 15 Saul's uncle said, "Tell me what Samuel said to you." NIRV 16 Saul replied, "He told us the donkeys had been found." But Saul didn't tell his uncle that Samuel had said he would become king. NIV 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. NIRV 17 Samuel sent a message to the people of Israel. He told them to meet with the LORD at Mizpah. NIV 17 Samuel summoned the people of Israel to the LORD at Mizpah NIRV 18 He said to them, "The LORD is the God of Israel. He says, 'Israel, I brought you up out of Egypt. I saved you from their powerful hand. I also saved you from the powerful hand of all of the kingdoms that had beaten you down.' NIV 18 and said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'I brought Israel up out of Egypt, and I delivered you from the power of Egypt and all the kingdoms that oppressed you.' NIRV 19 "But now you have turned your backs on your God. He saves you out of all of your trouble and suffering. In spite of that, you have said, 'We refuse to listen. Place a king over us.' "So now gather together to meet with the Lord. Do it tribe by tribe and family group by family group." NIV 19 But you have now rejected your God, who saves you out of all your calamities and distresses. And you have said, 'No, set a king over us.' So now present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes and clans."
