But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring , they let her go .
And they arose early : and it came to pass about the spring of the day, that Samuel called Saul to the top of the house, saying , Up , that I may send thee away . And Saul arose , and they went out both of them, he and Samuel, abroad.
Drop down , ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open , and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth ; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Shall it prosper ? shall he not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it wither ? it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring, even without great power or many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof.
Though he be fruitful among his brethren, an east wind shall come , the wind of the LORD shall come up from the wilderness, and his spring shall become dry , and his fountain shall be dried up : he shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels.
