← 1 Samuel 8   1 Samuel 10 →

1 Y había un varón de Benjamín, hombre valeroso, el cual se llamaba Cis, hijo de Abiel, hijo de Zeror, hijo de Becorat, hijo de Afía, hijo de un varón de Jemini (Benjamín ).

2 Y tenía él un hijo que se llamaba Saúl, joven y hermoso. Entre los hijos de Israel no había otro más hermoso que él; de hombros arriba sobrepasaba a cualquiera del pueblo.

3 Y se habían perdido las asnas de Cis, padre de Saúl; por lo que dijo Cis a Saúl su hijo: Toma ahora contigo alguno de los criados, y levántate, y ve a buscar las asnas.

4 Y él pasó al monte de Efraín, y de allí pasó a la tierra de Salisa, y no las hallaron. Pasaron luego por la tierra de Saalim, y tampoco. Después pasaron por la tierra de Jemini (o de Benjamín ), y no las encontraron.

5 Y cuando vinieron a la tierra de Zuf, Saúl dijo a su criado que tenía consigo: Ven, volvámonos; porque por ventura mi padre, dejado el cuidado de las asnas, estará acongojado por nosotros.

6 Y él le respondió: He aquí ahora que en esta ciudad esta el varón de Dios, que es varón insigne; todas las cosas que él dijere, sin duda vendrán. Vamos, ahora, allá; por ventura nos enseñará nuestro camino por donde hayamos de ir.

7 Y Saúl respondió a su criado: Vamos pues; ¿mas qué llevaremos al varón? Porque el pan de nuestras alforjas se ha acabado, y no tenemos qué presentar al varón de Dios. ¿Qué tenemos?

8 Entonces volvió el criado a responder a Saúl, diciendo: He aquí se halla en mi mano la cuarta parte de un siclo de plata; esto daré al varón de Dios, para que nos declare nuestro camino.

9 (Antiguamente en Israel cualquiera que iba a consultar a Dios, decía así: Venid y vamos hasta el vidente; porque el que ahora se llama profeta, antiguamente era llamado vidente).

10 Dijo entonces Saúl a su criado: Bien dices; ea pues, vamos. Y fueron a la ciudad donde estaba el varón de Dios.

11 Y cuando subían por la cuesta de la ciudad, hallaron unas doncellas que salían por agua, a las cuales dijeron: ¿Está en este lugar el vidente?

12 Y ellas , respondiéndoles, dijeron: Sí; helo aquí delante de ti; date pues, prisa, porque hoy ha venido a la ciudad en atención a que el pueblo tiene hoy sacrificio en el alto.

13 Y cuando entrareis en la ciudad, le encontraréis luego, antes que suba al alto a comer; pues el pueblo no comerá hasta que él haya venido, por cuanto él haya de bendecir el sacrificio, y después comerán los convidados. Subid, pues, ahora, porque ahora le hallaréis.

14 Ellos entonces subieron a la ciudad; y cuando estuvieron en medio de la ciudad, he aquí Samuel que salía delante de ellos para subir al alto.

15 Y un día antes que Saúl viniese, el SEÑOR había revelado al oído de Samuel, diciendo:

16 Mañana a esta misma hora yo enviaré a ti un varón de la tierra de Benjamín, al cual ungirás por príncipe sobre mi pueblo Israel, para que salve a mi pueblo de mano de los filisteos; porque yo he mirado a mi pueblo, y su clamor ha llegado hasta mí.

17 Y Samuel miró a Saúl, y el SEÑOR le dijo: He aquí éste es el varón del cual te dije; éste señoreará a mi pueblo.

18 Y llegando Saúl a Samuel en medio de la puerta, le dijo: Te ruego que me enseñes dónde está la casa del vidente.

19 Y Samuel respondió a Saúl, y dijo: Yo soy el vidente; sube delante de mí al alto, y come hoy conmigo, y por la mañana te despacharé, y te descubriré todo lo que está en tu corazón.

20 Y de las asnas que se te perdieron hoy hace tres días, pierde cuidado de ellas, porque se han hallado. Mas ¿por quién es todo el deseo de Israel, sino por ti y por toda la casa de tu padre?

21 Y Saúl respondió, y dijo: ¿Por ventura no soy yo hijo de Jemini, de las más pequeñas tribus de Israel? Y mi familia ¿no es la más pequeña de todas las familias de la tribu de Benjamín? ¿Por qué, pues, me has dicho cosa semejante?

22 Y trabando Samuel de Saúl y de su criado, los metió al cenadero, y les dio lugar a la cabecera de los convidados, que eran como unos treinta varones.

23 Y dijo Samuel al cocinero: Trae acá la porción que te di, la cual te dije que guardases aparte.

24 Entonces alzó el cocinero una espaldilla, con lo que estaba sobre ella, y la puso delante de Saúl. Y Samuel dijo: He aquí lo que estaba reservado; ponlo delante de ti, y come; porque para este tiempo se guardó para ti, cuando dije: Yo he convidado al pueblo. Y Saúl comió aquel día con Samuel.

25 Y cuando hubieron descendido de lo alto a la ciudad, él habló con Saúl en el terrado.

26 Y al otro día madrugaron, al despuntar del alba, y Samuel llamó a Saúl, que estaba en el terrado; y dijo: Levántate, para que te despache. Se levantó luego Saúl, y salieron fuera ambos, él y Samuel.

27 Y descendiendo ellos al límite de la ciudad, dijo Samuel a Saúl: Di al criado que vaya delante, (y se adelantó el criado ); mas espera tú un poco para que te declare palabra de Dios.

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.
