1 Or Samuele avea preso un piccol vaso d’olio, e lo versò in sul capo di esso, e lo baciò, e disse: Non è egli vero che il Signore ti ha unto per conduttore sopra la sua eredità?

2 Quando oggi tu sarai partito d’appresso a me, tu troverai due uomini presso alla sepoltura di Rachele, a’ confini di Beniamino, in Selsa, i quali ti diranno: Le asine che tu eri andato a cercare, si son trovate; ed ecco, tuo padre ha lasciata la cura delle asine, e sta in pensiero di voi, dicendo: Che farò io intorno al mio figliuolo?

3 E, quando di là tu sarai passato più innanzi, e sarai giunto al querceto di Tabor, tu scontrerai tre uomini che salgono a Dio, alla Casa di Dio, che porteranno, l’uno tre capretti, l’altro tre schiacciate di pane, e il terzo un baril di vino.

4 Ed essi ti domanderanno del tuo bene stare, e ti daranno due pani, i quali tu prenderai di man loro.

5 Poi tu verrai al colle di Dio, ov’è la guernigione de’ Filistei; e avverrà che, come tu entrerai nella città, tu scontrerai una schiera di profeti, che scenderanno giù dall’alto luogo, i quali avranno davanti a sè de’ salteri, de’ tamburi, de’ flauti e delle cetere; e profetizzeranno.

6 Allora lo Spirito di Dio si avventerà sopra te, e tu profetizzerai con loro, e sarai mutato in un altro uomo.

7 E quando questi segni ti saranno avvenuti, fa’ quello che ti occorrerà; perciocchè Iddio è teco.

8 Poi tu scenderai incontro a me in Ghilgal; ed ecco, io verrò a te per offerire olocausti, e per sacrificar sacrificii da render grazie; aspetta sette giorni, finchè io venga a te, ed io ti dichiarerò ciò che tu avrai a fare.

9 Ora, come egli ebbe voltate le spalle, per andarsene d’appresso a Samuele, Iddio gli mutò il cuore in un altro, e tutti que’ segni avvennero quello stesso giorno.

10 E, quando essi furono arrivati là al colle, ecco, una schiera di profeti gli veniva incontro; e lo Spirito di Dio si avventò sopra lui, ed egli profetizzò per mezzo loro.

11 Ed avvenne che, quando tutti quelli che l’aveano conosciuto per addietro, ebber veduto ch’egli profetizzava co’ profeti, la gente disse l’una all’altro: Che cosa è questo ch’è avvenuto al figliuolo di Chis? Saulle è egli anch’esso fra i profeti?

12 Ed un uomo di quel luogo rispose, e disse: E chi è il padre loro? Perciò, questo passò in proverbio: Saulle è egli anch’esso fra i profeti?

13 Poi, avendo finito di profetizzare, arrivò all’alto luogo.

14 E lo zio di Saulle disse a lui, e al suo servitore: Ove eravate voi andati? Ed egli disse: A cercar le asine; ma, veggendo che non le trovavamo, ce ne venimmo a Samuele.

15 E lo zio di Saulle gli disse: Deh! dichiarami ciò che vi ha detto Samuele.

16 E Saulle disse al suo zio: Egli ci ha significato per certo che le asine erano ritrovate. Ma non gli dichiarò ciò che Samuele gli avea detto intorno al regno.

17 Poi Samuele adunò il popolo a grida, appresso al Signore, in Mispa.

18 E disse a’ figliuoli d’Israele: Così ha detto il Signore Iddio d’Israele: Io ho tratto Israele fuori di Egitto, e vi ho riscossi dalla man degli Egizj, e dalla mano di tutti i regni che vi oppressavano.

19 Ma oggi voi avete sdegnato l’Iddio vostro, il qual vi ha salvati di tutti i vostri mali e distrette; e gli avete detto: Che che sia, costituisci un re sopra noi. Ora, dunque, comparite nel cospetto del Signore, per le vostre tribù e migliaia.

20 E Samuele fece accostar tutte le tribù d’Israele, e la tribù di Beniamino fu presa.

21 Poi fece accostar la tribù di Beniamino a nazione a nazione, e la nazione de’ Matriti fu presa; poi fu preso Saulle, figliuolo di Chis; ed egli fu cercato, ma non si trovò.

22 E gl’Israeliti domandarono di nuovo il Signore, dicendo: È quell’uomo già venuto qua? E il Signore disse: Ecco, egli è nascosto fra la salmeria.

23 Ed essi corsero, e lo presero di là; ed egli comparve in mezzo del popolo; ed era dalle spalle in su più alto che niuno del popolo.

24 E Samuele disse a tutto il popolo: Vedete voi colui che il Signore ha eletto? come non vi è alcuno pari a lui fra tutto il popolo? E tutto il popolo sclamò d’allegrezza, e disse: Viva il Re.

25 E Samuele pronunziò al popolo la ragione del regno, e la scrisse in un libro, il quale egli ripose davanti al Signore. Poi Samuele rimandò tutto il popolo, ciascuno a casa sua.

26 Saulle se ne andò anch’esso a casa sua in Ghibea; e la gente di guerra, a cui il Signore toccò il cuore, andò con lui.

27 Ma certi uomini scellerati dissero: Come ci salverebbe costui? E lo sprezzarono, e non gli portarono alcun presente. Ma egli fece vista di non udire.

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.
