← 1 Samuel 9   1 Samuel 11 →

1 Da tog Samuel Olieflasken og udgød Olien over hans Hoved, kyssede ham og sagde: "Har HE EN ikke salvet dig til Fyrste over sit Folk Israel? Du skal herske over HE ENs Folk og frelse det fra dets Fjender. Og dette skal være dig Tegnet på, at HE EN har salvet dig til Fyrste over sin Arv:

2 Når du i Dag går fra mig, skal du træffe to Mænd ved akels Grav ved Benjamins Grænse i Zelza, og de skal sige til dig: Æslerne, du gik ud at lede efter, er fundet; dem har din Fader slået af Tanke, men nu er han urolig for eder og siger: Hvad skal jeg gøre for min Søn?

3 Og når du er gået et Stykke længere frem og kommer til Taboregen, skal du træffe tre Mænd, som er på Vej op til Gud i Betel; den ene bærer tre Kid, den anden tre Brødkager og den tredje en Dunk Vin;

4 de skal hilse på dig og give dig to Brødkager, som du skal tage imod.

5 Derefter kommer du til Guds Gibea, hvor Filisternes Foged bor; og når du kommer hen til Byen, vil du støde på en Flok Profeter, som kommer ned fra Offerhøjen i profetisk Henrykkelse til Harpers, Paukers, Fløjters og Citres Klang;

6 så vil HE ENs Ånd overvælde dig, så du falder i profetisk Henrykkelse sammen med dem, og du skal blive til et andet Menneske.

7 Når disse Tegn indtræffer for dig, kan du trygt gøre, hvad der falder for; thi Gud er med dig.

8 Og du skal gå i Forvejen ned til Gilgal; så kommer jeg ned til dig for at bringe Brændofre og ofre Takofre. Syv Dage skal du vente, til jeg kommer og kundgør dig, hvad du skal gøre!"

9 Da han derpå vendte sig for at gå bort fra Samuel, gav Gud ham et helt andet Hjerte, og alle disse Tegn indtraf samme Dag.

10 Da han kom hen til Gibea, se, da kom en Flok Profeter ham i Møde, og Guds Ånd overvældede ham, og han faldt i profetisk Henrykkelse midt iblandt dem.

11 Og da alle, som kendte ham fra tidligere Tid, så ham i profetisk Henrykkelse sammen med Profeterne, sagde de til hverandre: "Hvad går der af Kisjs Søn? Er også Saul iblandt Profeterne?"

12 sagde en der fra Stedet: "Hvem er vel deres Fader?" Derfor blev det et Mundheld: "Er også Saul iblandt Profeterne?"

13 Da hans profetiske Henrykkelse var ovre, gik han til Gibea.

14 Sauls Farbroder spurgte da ham og Karlen: "Hvor har I været henne?" Han svarede: "Ude at lede efter Æslerne; og da vi ikke fandt dem, gik vi hen til Samuel."

15 Da sagde Sauls Farbroder: "Fortæl mig, hvad Samuel sagde til eder!"

16 Saul svarede: "Han fortalte os, at Æslerne var fundet!" Men hvad Samuel havde sagt om Kongedømmet, fortalte han ham ikke.

17 Derpå stævnede Samuel Folket sammen hos HE EN i Mizpa;

18 og han sagde til Israeliterne: "Så siger HE EN, Israels Gud: Jeg førte Israel op fra Ægypten og frelste eder af Ægypternes Hånd og fra alle de iger, som plagede eder.

19 Men nu vrager I eders Gud, som var eders Frelser i alle eders Ulykker og Trængsler, og siger: Nej, en Konge skal du sætte over os! Så træd nu frem for HE ENs Åsyn Stamme for Stamme og Slægt for Slægt!"

20 Derpå lod Samuel alle Israels Stammer træde frem, og Loddet ramte Benjamins Stamme.

21 Så lod han Benjamins Stamme træde frem Slægt for Slægt, og Matris Slægt ramtes. Så lod han Matris Slægt træde frem Mand for Mand, og Saul, Kisjs Søn, ramtes. Men da man ledte efter ham, var han ikke til at finde.

22 Da adspurgte de på ny HE EN: "Er Manden her?" Og HE EN svarede: "Se, han holder sig skjult ved Trosset."

23 Så løb de hen og hentede ham der; og da han trådte ind imellem Folket, var han et Hoved højere end alt Folket.

24 Da sagde Samuel til hele Folket: "Ser I ham, HE EN har udvalgt? Hans Lige findes ikke i alt Folket!" Og hele Folket brød ud i Jubelskrig og råbte: "Kongen leve!"

25 Derpå fremsagde Samuel Kongedømmets et for Folket og optegnede den i en Bog, som han lagde hen for HE ENs Åsyn. Så lod Samuel hele Folket gå hver til sit:

26 også Saul gik til sit Hjem i Gibea, og de tapre Mænd, hvis Hjerte Gud rørte, gik med ham.

27 Men nogle Niddinger sagde: "Hvor skulde denne kunne hjælpe os?" Og de ringeagtede ham og bragte ham ingen Hyldingsgave. Men han var, som han var døv.

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.
