← 1 Samuel 8   1 Samuel 10 →

1 Živio u ono vrijeme jedan čovjek u Benjaminovu plemenu po imenu Kiš, sin Abiela, sina Serora, sina Bekorata, sina Afijahova; bio je iz plemena Benjaminova, čovjek imućan.

2 Imao je sina po imenu Šaula, koji je bio mlad i lijep. Među sinovima Izraelovim nije bilo ljepšega čovjeka od njega: za glavu bijaše viši od svega naroda.

3 Uto se Kišu, Šaulovu ocu, izgubilo nekoliko magarica, pa Kiš reče svome sinu Šaulu: "Uzmi sa sobom jednoga momka pa ustani i idi tražiti magarice!"

4 I prođoše oni Efrajimovu goru i prođoše zemlju Šališu, ali ne nađoše ništa; prođoše zemlju Šaalim, ali magarica ne bijaše ondje; prođoše i zemlju Benjaminovu, ali ne nađoše ništa.

5 Kad su došli u zemlju Suf, reče Šaul momku koji ga je pratio: "Hajde, vratimo se da se ne bi otac okanio magarica i zabrinuo se za nas!"

6 A on mu odgovori: "Eno, u onom ondje gradu živi čovjek Božji; to je vrlo ugledan čovjek: što god rekne, sve se zacijelo ispunja. Pođimo, dakle, k njemu, možda će nas uputiti u ono zbog čega smo pošli na put."

7 A Šaul reče svome momku: "Ako zaista pođemo onamo, što ćemo ponijeti čovjeku? Kruha je nestalo u našim torbama, nemamo dara da ponesemo čovjeku Božjem. Što mu možemo dati?"

8 A momak opet progovori i reče Šaulu: "Gle, imam u ruci četvrt šekela srebra: dat ću ga Božjem čovjeku da nas uputi kamo bismo išli."

10 Šaul odvrati svome momku: "Dobro veliš. Hajdemo!" I krenuše u grad gdje je živio čovjek Božji.

11 Kad su se penjali usponom prema gradu, sretoše djevojke koje su izašle da zahvate vode. I zapitaše ih: "Je li gore vidjelac?" -

9 Nekoć se u Izraelu, kad bi išli pitati Boga za savjet, govorilo: "Hajde, pođimo k vidiocu!" Jer koga danas zovu prorokom nekoć se zvao vidjelac. -

12 One im odgovore ovako: "Jest, vidjelac je pred vama. Upravo je stigao u grad, jer danas narod ima žrtvu na uzvišici.

13 Čim uđete u grad, naći ćete ga još prije nego što se popne na uzvišicu da sudjeluje na žrtvenoj gozbi. Narod neće jesti dok on ne dođe, jer on mora blagosloviti žrtvu, a onda će tek uzvanici jesti. Zato idite odmah gore, jer ćete ga sada još naći."

14 Oni otiđoše gore u grad. Kad su ulazili na vrata, Samuel ih susrete polazeći na uzvišicu.

15 A dan prije nego što je Šaul došao bijaše Jahve objavio Samuelu:

16 "Sutra u ovo doba poslat ću k tebi čovjeka iz Benjaminove zemlje. Ti ćeš ga pomazati za kneza nad mojim narodom Izraelom. On će izbaviti moj narod iz ruke filistejske. Vidio sam nevolju svoga naroda i njegov je vapaj dopro do mene."

17 A kad je Samuel ugledao Šaula, Jahve mu progovori: "Evo ti čovjeka za koga ti rekoh: 'Taj će vladati nad mojim narodom.'"

18 Šaul pristupi Samuelu na vratima i reče: "Daj mi kaži gdje je vidiočeva kuća."

19 A Samuel odgovori Šaulu: "Ja sam vidjelac. Pođi preda mnom na uzvišicu, danas ćete sa mnom jesti. Sutra ću te ujutro otpustiti i sve ću ti kazati što ti je na srcu.

20 A za magarice koje su ti se izgubile prije tri dana ne uznemiruj se jer su se našle. Uostalom, kome pripada sve što je najdragocjenije u Izraelu? Zar ne tebi i svemu domu tvoga oca?"

21 A Šaul odgovori ovako: "Nisam li ja od Benjaminova plemena, najmanjega plemena Izraelova? A moj rod nije li najneznatniji između svih rodova Benjaminova plemena? Zašto mi, dakle, govoriš takve riječi?"

22 Samuel uze Šaula i njegova momka, odvede ih u sobu i dade im mjesto u pročelju među uzvanicima, kojih je bilo tridesetak.

23 Zatim Samuel reče kuharu: "Donesi dio koji ti dadoh i za koji ti rekoh da ga staviš na stranu."

24 Kuhar uze but, donese ga i stavi pred Šaula, a Samuel mu reče: "Evo, pred tobom je ono što je sačuvano za tebe. Jedi, jer to ti je sačuvano baš za ovu zgodu." Tako je u onaj dan Šaul jeo sa Samuelom.

25 Potom odande siđoše u grad. Ondje prostriješe Šaulu na krovu.

26 I on leže na počinak. Čim je svanula zora, Samuel zovnu Šaula (na krovu) govoreći: "Ustani da te otpustim!" Kad je Šaul ustao, izađoše obojica, on i Samuel.

27 Kad su došli na kraj grada, reče Samuel Šaulu: "Kaži momku neka pođe naprijed pred nama! A ti stani sada da ti objavim riječ Božju."

Exploring the Meaning of 1_Samuel 9      

In this chapter we are introduced to Saul, the son of Kish, from the tribe of Benjamin. He was outstandingly handsome, and a whole head taller than everyone else.

One day he was out searching for his father’s lost donkeys. It became a long journey, with no success. Saul was becoming more and more desperate, when his servant told him that nearby was a man of God, who might be able to show them the way. That man was Samuel. Saul made sure that he had a suitable offering to bring to Samuel, who was at that time called a seer, another name for a prophet.

On that day, Samuel was on his way to preside over a sacrifice. The Lord had told him that he would encounter the man who would be anointed commander of the people and save them from the Philistines. When he saw Saul, he immediately recognized him as this man. He invited Saul to the sacrifice, and told him that the donkeys Saul was searching for were safe. Saul ate with Samuel, who gave him the best of the meat offering. The next day Samuel asked Saul to wait a moment before leaving, and then Samuel delivered the Lord’s message.

Throughout the story, high places are mentioned. Samuel invites Saul to accompany him to a high place, and later to a rooftop. Swedenborg writes that this is representative of a king. Saul became king of the Israelites (see Spiritual Experiences 2472).

Another interesting aspect of the story is its mention of Saul’s attractive appearance. We as humans are often drawn to things which seem attractive to us. In each of us there are two parts: one part is external or sensual, and the other is internal or spiritual. We cannot fully understand the Lord when we are only thinking from the external part of ourselves. When this part of ourselves dominates, the Lord can seem distant. We need the spiritual part of us to be awake to develop a new relationship with God (see Heaven and Hell 85).

The idea of having a king, Saul, may have seemed attractive to the Israelites. But it may not have been the best idea for their relationship with God. In the previous chapter we learned that by transitioning from having a prophet to having a king, the Israelites prioritized one aspect of their relationship with God over another: faith over charity, or truth over goodness. In reality, we need both.
