  • 1 Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on his head and kissed him and said, "Has not the LORD anointed you to be prince over his people Israel? And you shall reign over the people of the LORD and you will save them from the hand of their surrounding enemies. And this shall be the sign to you that the LORD has anointed you to be prince over his heritage.
    2 When you depart from me today, you will meet two men by Rachel's tomb in the territory of Benjamin at Zelzah, and they will say to you, 'The donkeys that you went to seek are found, and now your father has ceased to care about the donkeys and is anxious about you, saying, "What shall I do about my son?"'
    3 Then you shall go on from there farther and come to the oak of Tabor. Three men going up to God at Bethel will meet you there, one carrying three young goats, another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a skin of wine.
    4 And they will greet you and give you two loaves of bread, which you shall accept from their hand.
    5 After that you shall come to Gibeath-elohim, where there is a garrison of the Philistines. And there, as soon as you come to the city, you will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place with harp, tambourine, flute, and lyre before them, prophesying.
    6 Then the Spirit of the LORD will rush upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man.
    7 Now when these signs meet you, do what your hand finds to do, for God is with you.
    8 Then go down before me to Gilgal. And behold, I am coming to you to offer burnt offerings and to sacrifice peace offerings. Seven days you shall wait, until I come to you and show you what you shall do."
    9 When he turned his back to leave Samuel, God gave him another heart. And all these signs came to pass that day.
    10 When they came to Gibeah, behold, a group of prophets met him, and the Spirit of God rushed upon him, and he prophesied among them.
    11 And when all who knew him previously saw how he prophesied with the prophets, the people said to one another, "What has come over the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?"
    12 And a man of the place answered, "And who is their father?" Therefore it became a proverb, "Is Saul also among the prophets?"
    13 When he had finished prophesying, he came to the high place.
    14 Saul's uncle said to him and to his servant, "Where did you go?" And he said, "To seek the donkeys. And when we saw they were not to be found, we went to Samuel."
    15 And Saul's uncle said, "Please tell me what Samuel said to you."
    16 And Saul said to his uncle, "He told us plainly that the donkeys had been found." But about the matter of the kingdom, of which Samuel had spoken, he did not tell him anything.

    2022-05-22   Samuel prophesied about three signs that were to come to prove that the Lord appointed Saul to be king. Saul was to attack the Philistines and wait seven days, but Saul did not obey.

이해하기(Understanding)
In the Old Testament times, when a priest, prophet, or king was appointed, oil was poured on their head. Samuel poured oil on Saul’s head just as the Lord instructed. Then he told Saul about three signs that were about to come, so that Saul himself will be assured of his own calling from the Lord. The first sign was that he was going to meet two men by Rachel’s tomb in the territory of Benjamin who would tell him that his father was worried about Saul. The second sign was that he would meet three worshippers at Bethel, who would give him two loaves of bread. This was an act of people who gave gifts to the person who was to become the king. The third sign was that the Spirit of the Lord would rush upon Saul to give him the power to carry out the ministry of salvation. After this, Saul had to carry out his will as a king (to chase the Philistines away), then meet Samuel at Gilgal and be confirmed as the king in the sight of all the people of Israel (vv. 1-8).

Saul walked away from Samuel and went on his way. Amazingly, all the three signs Samuel spoke about really happened to Saul. However, we only see an account of the third sign, and the other two are not mentioned. Also, Saul did not obey Samuel’s orders, and hid the fact that he had become a king to his uncle (vv. 9-16).
