1 USamuweli wathabatha igutyana leoli, wamgalela entloko, wamanga, wathi, Inene, uYehova ukuthambisile ukuba ube yinganga yelifa lakhe.

2 Ekumkeni kwakho kum namhla, uya kufumana amadoda amabini ngasengcwabeni likaRakeli, emdeni wakwaBhenjamin, eTseletsa; aya kuthi kuwe, Zifunyenwe iimazi zamaesile obuye kuzifuna. Yabona, ukuyekile uyihlo ukuthetha ngeemazi zamaesile ezo; unesithukuthezi ngani, esithi, Ndiya kuthini na ngonyana wam.

3 Ugqithile apho, woqhubela phambili, ufike kumoki weTabhore, uhlangane khona namadoda amathathu enyuka esiya kuThixo eBheteli, enye ithwele amatakane amathathu, enye ithwele iintenda zezonka ezithathu, enye ithwele intsuba yewayini.

4 Okubuza ukuphila kwakho, akunike izonka ezibini; uzithabathe ezandleni zawo.

5 Emveni koko uya kufika eGibheha kaThixo, apho kukhoyo ikampu yamaFilisti; kuthi, xa ufikileyo emzini apho, uthane nqiphu negqiza labaprofeti, lisihla livela esigangeni, phambi kwalo ingumrhubhe, nengqongqo, nogwali, nohadi, beprofeta.

6 UMoya kaThixo wokufikela ngamandla, uprofete ndawonye nabo, uguquke ube mntu wumbi.

7 Kothi, xa ithe yafika kuwe loo miqondiso, uzenzele njengoko siya kufumana ngako isandla sakho; ngokuba uThixo unawe;

8 uhle uye phambi kwam eGiligali. Yabona, ndiyehla, ndiza kuwe, ukuze ndinyuse amadini anyukayo, ndibingelele imibingelelo yoxolo. Wolinda imihla esixhenxe ndide ndize kuwe, ndikwazise oko uya kukwenza.

9 Wathi uSawule, akuthi khwitshi ukuba emke kuSamuweli, uThixo wamguqula, wanantliziyo yimbi. Yafika yonke loo miqondiso kwangayo loo mini.

10 Bafika eGibheha apho, nalo igqiza labaprofeti limkhawulela; wamfikela ngamandla uMoya kaThixo, waprofeta phakathi kwabo.

11 Kwathi, bakumbona bonke ababemazi ngaphambili, eprofeta ndawonye nabaprofeti, bathi abantu omnye komnye, Uhliwe yintoni na unyana kaKishe? Ukubaprofeti noSawule na?

12 Waphendula umntu wakhona, wathi, Ngubani na uyise wabo? Ngenxa yoko kwabakho umzekeliso wokuthi, Ukubaprofeti noSawule na?

13 Wagqiba ukuprofeta, waya esigangeni.

14 Wathi uyisekazi kaSawule kuye, nakumfana lowo, Beniye phi na? Wathi, Besifuna iimazi zamaesile; sakubona ukuba asizifumani, saya kuSamuweli.

15 Wathi uyisekazi kaSawule, Khawundixelele ukuba utheni na uSamuweli kuni.

16 Wathi uSawule kuyisekazi, Usixelele ukuba zifunyenwe iimazi zamaesile. Ke ngobukumkani, abethethe ngabo uSamuweli, akamxelelanga nto.

17 Ke kaloku uSamuweli wabahlabela umkhosi abantu;

18 beza kuYehova eMizpa. Wathi koonyana bakaSirayeli, Utsho uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Ndawanyusa mna amaSirayeli eYiputa, ndanihlangula esandleni samaYiputa, nasesandleni sezikumkani zonke ezanixinayo.

19 Namhla ke nimcekisile nina uThixo wenu, owanisindisayo ebubini benu bonke, nasekubandezelweni konke, nathi kuye, Simisele ukumkani phezu kwethu. Kaloku ke zimiseni phambi koYehova ngokwezizwe zenu, nangokwamawaka enu.

20 Wazisondeza ke uSamuweli zonke izizwe zakwaSirayeli, kwathatyathwa isizwe sakwaBhenjamin.

21 Wasisondeza isizwe sakwaBhenjamin ngokwemizalwane yaso, kwathatyathwa umzalwane wakwaMatri, kwathatyathwa ke uSawule unyana kaKishe. Bamfuna, abamfumana.

22 Babuya babuza kuYehova, bathi, Uselefikile na umntu? Wathi uYehova, Nanko ezimele yena phantsi kwempahla.

23 Babaleka, bamthabatha apho. Wema phakathi kwabantu, wamde kubantu bonke, ethabathela emagxeni anyuse.

24 Wathi uSamuweli kubantu bonke, Niyambona na lo unyuliweyo nguYehova; ukuba akukho unjengaye ebantwini bonke? Baduma bonke abantu, bathi, Makadle ubomi ukumkani!

25 USamuweli walithetha ebantwini isiko lobukumkani, walibhala encwadini, wayibeka phambi koYehova. USamuweli wabandulula abantu bonke; baya elowo endlwini yakhe.

26 Naye uSawule waya endlwini yakhe eGibheha; lahamba naye iqela elinobukroti, elintliziyo zichukunyisiweyo nguThixo.

27 Ke bona abangamatshijolo bathi, wothini na ukusisindisa lo? Bamdela; abamzisela mnikelo. Yena wanga akeva.

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.
