1 Tada Samuel uze uljanicu s uljem te je izli na glavu Šaulu; zatim ga poljubi i reče: "Ovim te Jahve pomazao za kneza nad svojim narodom Izraelom. Ti ćeš vladati nad narodom Jahvinim i izbavit ćeš ga iz ruke njegovih neprijatelja unaokolo. I evo ti znaka da te Jahve pomazao za kneza nad svojom baštinom.

2 Kad odeš sada od mene, naći ćeš dva čovjeka kod Rahelina groba, na granici zemlje Benjaminove, u Selsahu. Oni će ti reći: 'Našle su se magarice koje si pošao tražiti; i gle, tvoj je otac zaboravio na magarice, a zabrinut je za vas i govori: Što da učinim za svoga sina?'

3 A kad odeš odande dalje i dođeš do Taborskog Hrasta, srest ćeš ondje tri čovjeka koja će ići gore k Bogu u Betel. Jedan će nositi tri jareta, drugi tri okrugla kruha, a treći mijeh vina.

4 Oni će te pozdraviti i dat će ti dva kruha, a ti ih primi iz njihove ruke.

5 Poslije toga doći ćeš u Gibeu Božju (gdje se nalazi filistejski stup). Kad uđeš u grad, namjerit ćeš se na povorku proroka koji će silaziti s uzvišice, a pred njima harfe, bubnjevi, frule i citre; oni će biti u proročkom zanosu.

6 Tada će na te sići duh Jahvin te ćeš pasti u proročki zanos s njima i promijenit ćeš se u drugog čovjeka.

7 A kad ti se ispune ti znakovi, onda čini kako ti se prilika pruži jer je Bog s tobom.

8 Zatim ćeš sići preda mnom u Gilgal i ja ću sići k tebi da prinesem žrtve paljenice i žrtve pričesnice. Sedam dana čekaj dok ne dođem k tebi i ne poučim te što ćeš činiti."

9 Čim je Šaul okrenuo leđa da ode od Samuela, Bog mu promijeni srce i svi se oni znakovi ispuniše u onaj dan.

10 Kad su, naime, došli u Gibeu, gle, dođe mu u susret povorka proroka i duh Božji siđe na njega te on pade u proročki zanos usred njih.

11 I kad su ga svi koji ga poznavahu otprije vidjeli gdje prorokuje s prorocima, počeše govoriti jedan drugome: "Što se to dogodilo sa sinom Kiševim? Zar je Šaul među prorocima?"

12 A jedan od njih odvrati i reče: "A tko je njihov otac?" Otuda je nastala poslovica: "Zar je i Šaul među prorocima?"

13 Kad je prošao njegov zanos, Šaul se vrati kući.

14 A Šaulov stric upita njega i njegova momka: "Kamo ste išli?" A Šaul odgovori: "Da tražimo magarice; a kad smo vidjeli da ih nema, otišli smo k Samuelu."

15 A njegov ga stric zamoli: "Pripovijedaj mi što vam je rekao Samuel."

16 A Šaul odgovori svome stricu: "Rekao nam je da su se našle magarice." Ali mu ništa ne reče o kraljevskoj časti koju mu je prorekao Samuel.

17 Poslije toga Samuel sazva narod pred Jahvu u Mispu

18 i reče sinovima Izraelovim: "Ovako govori Jahve: 'Ja sam izveo Izraela iz Egipta i izbavio sam vas iz egipatske ruke i iz ruke svih kraljevstava koja su vas tlačila.

19 A vi ste danas odbacili svoga Boga, onoga koji vas je izbavljao od svih vaših zala i svih vaših nevolja i rekli ste mu: 'Ne, nego postavi kralja nad nama!' Zato sada stanite pred Jahvom po svojim plemenima i rodovima.'"

20 Potom Samuel privede sva plemena Izraelova i ždrijeb pade na pleme Benjaminovo.

21 Zatim privede pleme Benjaminovo po rodovima i ždrijeb pade na Matrijev rod; a kad privede Matrijev rod, čovjeka po čovjeka, ždrijeb pade na Šaula, sina Kiševa; ali kad ga potražiše, na nađoše ga.

22 Tada još jednom upitaše Jahvu: "Je li taj čovjek došao ovamo?" A Jahve odgovori: "Eno ga, sakrio se za tovarom."

23 Otrčaše i dovedoše ga odande; a kad je stao usred naroda, bijaše glavom i ramenima viši od sviju.

24 Tada Samuel reče svemu narodu: "Vidite li koga je izabrao Jahve? Nema mu ravna u svemu narodu." I sav narod uze klicati i vikati: "Živio kralj!"

25 Nato Samuel objavi narodu kraljevsko pravo i zapisa ga u knjigu koju položi pred Jahvu. Najposlije Samuel otpusti sav narod da ide svaki svojoj kući.

26 Šaul se također vrati kući u Gibeu, a s njim pođoše junaci kojima je Bog taknuo srce.

27 Ali neke ništarije rekoše: "Kako će nas taj spasiti?" I prezreše ga i ne donesoše mu nikakva dara.

Exploring the Meaning of 1_Samuel 10      

In this chapter, Samuel took a flask of oil and anointed Saul’s head. He told Saul that the donkeys he was searching for had been found, and sent him instead to Bethel, which he also called the hill of God. Bethel, where the Ark of the Covenant was kept, was a holy place. It represents a knowledge of celestial things (see Arcana Coelestia 1453).

Samuel prophesied that Saul would encounter a group of prophets at Bethel. When Saul arrived there, he met them, and he immediately felt the Spirit of the Lord and prophesied with them. When Saul returned home, the people who knew him recognized that something about him had changed. Had he become a prophet?

Later in the story, Samuel again called the people together at Mizpah. He spoke to them about how they had rejected the Lord. Then he began a selection process, drawing lots to determine who would be their first king. The tribe of Benjamin was chosen, then the family of Matri, and ultimately Saul. However, Saul was reluctant, and was hiding. They searched for him, found him, and brought him before the people. The people saw his outstanding appearance and height, and accepted him as someone suitable. Saul explained “the manner of the kingdom", and also described it in a book. The gathering was then dismissed.

Right away, there were hints of future trouble. Some people, referred to as children of Belial, who doubted that Saul was the man to lead them, and they did not bring him gifts.

The children of Belial stand for false ideas that are derived from evil, hellish loves. They are associated with the worship of other gods.

In the Word, gifts symbolize an introduction, to “initiate goodwill and favour.” These people did not trust Saul, and did not seek to create a good relationship with him (see Arcana Coelestia 4262).

It was important that the kings of Israel were anointed with oil. It was a mark of the representative role that they were to take. As mentioned in the previous chapter, they could not represent the Lord in the type of loving way that priests could. Instead, they could represent His truth. They could be examples of what it means to live by and enforce the law and to provide order.

The oil that Samuel used to anoint Saul also has a symbolic meaning. It represents the Lord as the good of love (see Arcana Coelestia 9954). Swedenborg writes that the reason priests and kings were anointed is that through this they represented the Lord, in His Divine humanity (see Apocalypse Revealed 779).

In a number of places in Scripture it is said that each of us has been made “kings and priests to God.” (See especially Revelation 1:5 and 5:10) This means that our lives can evolve, with the Lord’s guidance, so that everything about us can be an expression of both His love and His teachings, as they exist as a unity. This is what is means to become the “image and likeness of God” as described in Genesis 1:26.
