1 A beše jedan čovek od plemena Venijaminovog, kome ime beše Kis, sin Avila, sina Serora, sina Vehorata, sina Afije, sina jednog čoveka od plemena Venijaminovog, hrabar junak.

2 On imaše sina po imenu Saula, koji beše mlad i lep da ne beše lepšeg od njega među sinovima Izrailjevim, a glavom beše viši od svega naroda.

3 A Kisu, ocu Saulovom nestaše magarice, pa reče Kis Saulu sinu svom: Uzmi sa sobom jednog momka, pa ustani i idi te traži magarice.

4 I on prođe goru Jefremovu, i prođe zemlju salisku; ali ne nađoše; pa prođoše i zemlju salimsku, i ne beše ih; pa prođoše i zemlju Venijaminovu, i ne nađoše.

5 A kad dođoše u zemlju sufsku, reče Saul momku svom koji beše s njim: Hajde da se vratimo, da se ne bi otac okanio magarica i zabrinuo se za nas.

6 A on mu reče: Evo, u ovom gradu ima čovek Božji, kog veoma poštuju; šta god kaže sve se zbiva; hajdemo k njemu, može biti da će nas uputiti kuda bismo išli.

7 A Saul reče momku svom: Hajde da idemo; ali šta ćemo odneti čoveku? Jer nam je hleba nestalo u torbama, a dar nemamo da odnesemo čoveku Božijem. Šta imamo?

8 A momak opet odgovarajući reče Saulu: Eto u mene četvrt sikla srebra; to da dam čoveku Božijem da nas uputi.

9 A u staro vreme ko bi išao da pita Boga govoraše: Hajde da idemo k videocu. Jer ko se sada zove prorok u staro se vreme zvaše videlac.

10 I Saul reče momku svom: Dobro veliš; hajde da idemo. I pođoše u grad gde beše čovek Božji.

11 I kad iđahu uz brdo gradsko, sretoše devojke koje izlažahu da zahvataju vodu, pa im rekoše: Je li tu videlac?

12 A one odgovarajući rekoše: Jeste, eto pred tobom; pohitaj, jer je danas došao u grad, jer danas narod ima žrtvu na gori.

13 Kako uđete u grad, naći ćete ga pre nego pođe na goru da jede; jer narod neće jesti dokle on ne dođe, jer on treba da blagoslovi žrtvu, pa onda će zvanice jesti; zato idite, jer ćete ga sada naći.

14 I otidoše u grad; a kad dođoše usred grada, gle Samuilo polazeći na goru srete ih.

15 A Gospod beše objavio Samuilu dan pre nego dođe Saul, rekavši:

16 Sutra u ovo doba poslaću k tebi jednog čoveka iz zemlje Venijaminove, njega pomaži da bude vođ narodu mom Izrailju, i on će izbaviti moj narod iz ruku filistejskih. Jer pogledah na narod svoj, jer vika njegova dođe do mene.

17 I kad Samuilo ugleda Saula, reče mu Gospod: Eto čoveka za kog ti rekoh; taj će vladati mojim narodom.

18 I Saul pristupi k Samuilu na vratima, i reče: Kaži mi, gde je kuća videočeva?

19 A Samuilo odgovori Saulu i reče: Ja sam videlac. Hajde preda mnom na goru, i danas ćete sa mnom jesti; a sutra ću te otpustiti, i šta ti je god u srcu, kazaću ti.

20 A za magarice, kojih ti je nestalo pre tri dana, ne brini se; jer su se našle. I čije će biti sve što je najbolje u Izrailju? Eda li ne tvoje i svega doma oca tvog?

21 A Saul odgovori i reče: Nisam li od plemena Venijaminovog, najmanjeg plemena Izrailjevog, i dom moj najmanji između svih domova plemena Venijaminovog? Što mi dakle govoriš tako?

22 A Samuilo uze Saula i njegovog momka, i odvede ih u sobu, i posadi ih u začelje među zvanicama kojih beše do trideset ljudi.

23 I Samuilo reče kuvaru: Donesi deo koji ti dadoh i za koji ti rekoh: Ostavi ga kod sebe.

24 Tada donese kuvar pleće i šta beše na njemu; a Samuilo ga metnu pred Saula, i reče: Evo šta je ostalo, uzmi preda se, te jedi, jer je sačuvano pre za tebe, kad rekoh: Pozvao sam narod. Tako jede Saul sa Samuilom onaj dan.

25 Potom siđoše s gore u grad, i Samuilo se razgovara sa Saulom na krovu.

26 A ujutru uraniše, i kad svitaše, zovnu Samuilo Saula na krov, i reče mu: Digni se, da te otpustim. I kad se diže Saul, iziđoše obojica, on i Samuilo.

27 I kad dođoše na kraj grada, reče Samuilo Saulu: Reci momku neka ide napred (i on prođe napred), a ti stani malo da ti javim reč Božiju.

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.
