1 Samuel 10:17-27

CEB 17 Samuel summoned the people to the LORD at Mizpah. NIV 17 Samuel summoned the people of Israel to the LORD at Mizpah CEB 18 Then he told the Israelites: "This is what the LORD God of Israel says: I brought Israel up out of Egypt, and I delivered you from the Egyptians' power and from the power of all the kingdoms that oppressed you. 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.’ CEB 19 But today you've rejected your God who saved you from all your troubles and difficulties by saying, ‘No! Appoint a king over us!' So now assemble yourselves before the LORD by your tribes and clans." NIV 19 But you have now rejected your God, who saves you out of all your disasters and calamities. And you have said, ‘No, appoint a king over us.’ So now present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes and clans.” CEB 20 Then Samuel brought all the Israelite tribes forward, and the tribe of Benjamin was selected. NIV 20 When Samuel had all Israel come forward by tribes, the tribe of Benjamin was taken by lot. CEB 21 Next Samuel brought the tribe of Benjamin forward by its families, and the family of Matri was selected. Samuel then brought the family of Matri forward, person by person, and Saul, Kish's son, was selected. But when they looked for him, he wasn't to be found. NIV 21 Then he brought forward the tribe of Benjamin, clan by clan, and Matri’s clan was taken. Finally Saul son of Kish was taken. But when they looked for him, he was not to be found. CEB 22 So they asked another question of the LORD: "Has the man come here yet?" The LORD said, "Yes, he's hiding among the supplies." NIV 22 So they inquired further of the LORD, “Has the man come here yet?” And the LORD said, “Yes, he has hidden himself among the supplies.” CEB 23 They ran and retrieved Saul from there, and when he stood up in the middle of the people, he was head and shoulders taller than anyone else. NIV 23 They ran and brought him out, and as he stood among the people he was a head taller than any of the others. CEB 24 "Can you see the one the LORD has chosen?" Samuel asked all the people. "He has no equal among the people." Then the people shouted, "Long live the king!" NIV 24 Samuel said to all the people, “Do you see the man the LORD has chosen? There is no one like him among all the people.” Then the people shouted, “Long live the king!” CEB 25 Samuel then explained to the people how the monarchy should operate and wrote it in a scroll and placed it in the LORD's presence. Then Samuel sent every person back to their homes. NIV 25 Samuel explained to the people the rights and duties of kingship. He wrote them down on a scroll and deposited it before the LORD. Then Samuel dismissed the people to go to their own homes. CEB 26 Saul also went back to his home in Gibeah. Along with him went courageous men whose hearts God had touched. NIV 26 Saul also went to his home in Gibeah, accompanied by valiant men whose hearts God had touched. CEB 27 But some despicable people said, "How can this man save us?" They despised Saul and didn't bring him gifts, but Saul didn't say anything. Nahash the Ammonite king had been severely oppressing the Gadites and the Reubenites. He gouged out everyone's right eye, thereby not allowing Israel to have a deliverer. There wasn't a single Israelite left across the Jordan River who hadn't had their right eye gouged out by the Ammonite king Nahash. But seven thousand people had escaped from the Ammonites' power and fled to Jabesh-gilead. NIV 27 But some scoundrels said, “How can this fellow save us?” They despised him and brought him no gifts. But Saul kept silent.
