← 1 Samuel 8   1 Samuel 10 →         

1 Or il y avait un homme de Benjamin, qui avait nom Kis, fort et vaillant; fils d Abiël, fils de Tséror, fils de Becorad, fils d'Aphiah, fils d'un Benjamite;

2 Lequel avait un fils nommé Saül, jeune homme d'élite, et beau, en sorte qu'il n'y avait aucun des enfants d'Israël qui fût plus beau que lui, [et] depuis les épaules en haut il était plus grand qu'aucun du peuple.

3 Or les ânesses de Kis, père de Saül s'étaient perdues; et Kis dit à Saül son fils : Prends maintenant avec toi un des serviteurs et te lève, et va chercher les ânesses.

4 Il passa donc par la montagne d'Ephraïm, et traversa le pays de Salisa; mais ils ne les trouvèrent point. Puis ils passèrent par le pays de Sehalim, mais elles n'y furent point; ils passèrent ensuite par le pays de Jémini, mais ils ne les trouvèrent point.

5 Quand ils furent venus au pays de Tsuph, Saül dit à son serviteur qui était avec lui : Viens, et retournons-nous-en, de peur que mon père n'ait cessé [d'être en peine] des ânesses, et qu'il ne soit en peine de nous.

6 Et le serviteur lui dit : Voici, je te prie, il y a en cette ville un homme de Dieu, qui est un personnage fort vénérable; tout ce qu'il dit arrive infailliblement; allons y maintenant, peut-être qu'il nous enseignera le chemin que nous devons prendre.

7 Et Saül dit à son serviteur : Mais si nous y allons, que porterons-nous à l'homme de Dieu, car la provision nous a manqué, et nous n'avons aucun présent pour porter à l'homme de Dieu? qu'avons-nous avec nous?

8 Et le serviteur répondit encore à Saül, et dit : Voici j'ai encore entre mes mains le quart d'un sicle d'argent, et je le donnerai à l'homme de Dieu, et il nous enseignera notre chemin.

9 [Or] c'était anciennement [la coutume] en Israël quand on allait consulter Dieu, qu'on se disait l'un à l'autre : Venez, allons au Voyant; car celui qu'on [appelle] aujourd'hui Prophète, s'appelait autrefois le Voyant.

10 Et Saül dit à son serviteur : Tu dis bien ; viens; allons. Et ils s'en allèrent dans la ville où [était] l'homme de Dieu.

11 Et comme ils montaient par la montée de la ville, ils trouvèrent de jeunes filles qui sortaient pour puiser de l'eau, et ils leur dirent : Le Voyant n'est-il pas ici?

12 Et elles leur répondirent, et dirent : Il y est, le voilà devant toi; hâte-toi maintenant, car il est venu aujourd'hui en la ville, parce qu'il y a aujourd'hui un sacrifice pour le peuple dans le haut lieu.

13 Comme vous entrerez dans la ville, vous le trouverez avant qu'il monte au haut lieu pour manger; car le peuple ne mangera point jusqu'à ce qu'il soit venu, parce qu'il doit bénir le sacrifice; [et] après cela ceux qui sont conviés [en] mangeront; montez donc maintenant; car vous le trouverez aujourd'hui.

14 Ils montèrent donc à la ville; et comme ils entraient dans la ville, voici, Samuel, qui sortait pour monter au haut lieu, les rencontra.

15 Or l'Eternel avait fait entendre et avait dit à Samuel, un jour avant que Saül vînt :

16 Demain à cette même heure je t'enverrai un homme du pays de Benjamin, et tu l'oindras pour être le conducteur de mon peuple d'Israël, et il délivrera mon peuple de la main des Philistins; car j'ai regardé mon peuple, parce que son cri est parvenu jusqu'à moi.

17 Et dès que Samuel eut aperçu Saül, l'Eternel lui dit : Voilà l'homme dont je t'ai parlé; c'est celui qui dominera sur mon peuple.

18 Et Saül s'approcha de Samuel au dedans de la porte, et [lui dit] : Je te prie enseigne-moi où est la maison du Voyant.

19 Et Samuel répondit à Saül, et dit : Je suis le Voyant; monte devant moi au haut lieu, et vous mangerez aujourd'hui avec moi; et je te laisserai aller au matin, et je te déclarerai tout ce que tu as sur le cœur.

20 Car quant aux ânesses que tu as perdues il y a aujourd'hui trois jours, ne t'en mets point en peine, parce qu'elles ont été trouvées. Et vers qui [tend] tout le désir d'Israël? n'est ce point vers toi, et vers toute la maison de ton père?

21 Et Saül répondit et dit : Ne suis-je pas Benjamite, de la moindre Tribu d'Israël, et ma famille n'est-elle pas la plus petite de toutes les familles de la Tribu de Benjamin? et pourquoi m'as-tu tenu de tels discours?

22 Samuel donc prit Saül et son serviteur, et les fit entrer dans la salle, et les plaça au plus haut bout, entre les conviés, qui étaient environ trente hommes.

23 Et Samuel dit au cuisinier : Apporte la portion que je t'ai donnée, [et] de laquelle je t'ai dit de la serrer par devers toi.

24 Or le cuisinier avait levé une épaule, et ce qui était au dessus, et il la mit devant Saül. Et Samuel dit : Voici ce qui a été réservé, mets-le devant toi, et mange; car il t'a été gardé expressément pour cette heure, lorsque j'ai dit de convier le peuple; et Saül mangea avec Samuel ce jour-là.

25 Puis ils descendirent du haut lieu dans la ville, et [Samuel] parla avec Saül sur le toit.

26 Puis s'étant levé le matin, à la pointe du jour, Samuel appela Saül sur le toit, et lui dit : Lève-toi, et je te laisserai aller. Saül donc se leva, et ils sortirent eux deux dehors, lui et Samuel.

27 Et comme ils descendaient au bas de la ville, Samuel dit à Saül : Dis au serviteur qu'il passe devant nous; lequel passa, mais toi arrête-toi maintenant, afin que je te fasse entendre la parole de Dieu.

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.
