1 And the Lord said to Samuel, How long dost thou mourn for Saul, whereas I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill thy horn with oil, and come, I will send thee to Jessae, to Bethleem; for I have seen among his sons a king for me. 2 And Samuel said, How can I go? whereas Saul will hear of it, and slay me: and the Lord said, Take a heifer in thine hand and thou shall say, I am come to sacrifice to the Lord. 3 And thou shalt call Jessae to the sacrifice, and I will make known to thee what thou shalt do; and thou shalt anoint him whom I shall mention to thee. 4 And Samuel did all that the Lord told him; and he came to Bethleem: and the elders of the city were amazed at meeting him, and said, Dost thou come peaceably, thou Seer? 5 And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice to the Lord. Sanctify yourselves, and rejoice with me this day: and he sanctified Jessae and his sons, and he called them to the sacrifice. 6 And it came to pass when they came in, that he saw Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord’s anointed [is] before him. 7 But the Lord said to Samuel, Look not on his appearance, nor on his stature, for I have rejected him; for God sees not as man looks; for man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart. 8 And Jessae called Aminadab, and he passed before Samuel: and he said, Neither has God chosen this one. 9 And Jessae caused Sama to pass by: and he said, Neither has God chosen this one. 10 And Jessae caused his seven sons to pass before Samuel: and Samuel said, the Lord has not chosen these. 11 And Samuel said to Jessae, Hast thou no more sons? And Jessae said, [There is] yet a little one; behold, he tends the flock. And Samuel said to Jessae, Send and fetch him for we may not sit down till he comes. 12 And he sent and fetched him: and he was ruddy, with beauty of eyes, and very goodly to behold. And the Lord said to Samuel, Arise, and anoint David, for he is good. 13 And Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward: and Samuel arose, and departed to Armathaim. 14 And the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord tormented him. 15 And Saul’s servants said to him, Behold now, an evil spirit from the Lord torments thee. 16 Let now thy servants speak before thee, and let them seek for our lord a man skilled to play on the harp; and it shall come to pass when an evil spirit comes upon thee and he shall play on his harp, that thou shalt be well, and he shall refresh thee. 17 And Saul said to his servants, Look now out for me a skillful player, and bring him to me. 18 And one of his servants answered and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jessae the Bethleemite, and he understands playing [on the harp], and the man [is] prudent, and a warrior, and wise in speech, and the man [is] handsome, and the Lord [is] with him. 19 And Saul sent messengers to Jessae, saying, Send to me thy son David who is with thy flock. 20 And Jessae took a homer of bread, and a bottle of wine, and one kid of the goats, and sent them by the hand of his son David to Saul. 21 And David went in to Saul, and stood before him; and he loved him greatly; and he became his armour-bearer. 22 And Saul sent to Jessae, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me, for he has found grace in my eyes. 23 And it came to pass when the evil spirit was upon Saul, that David took his harp, and played with his hand: and Saul was refreshed, and [it was] well with him, and the evil spirit departed from him. ΚΑΙ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς Σαμουήλ· ἕως πότε σὺ πενθεῖς ἐπὶ Σαούλ, κἀγὼ ἐξουδένωκα αὐτὸν μὴ βασιλεύειν ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ; πλῆσον τὸ κέρας σου ἐλαίου, καὶ δεῦρο ἀποστείλω σε πρὸς ᾿Ιεσσαὶ ἕως Βηθλεέμ, ὅτι ἑώρακα ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ ἐμοὶ βασιλέα. 2 καὶ εἶπε Σαμουήλ· πῶς πορευθῶ; καὶ ἀκούσεται Σαοὺλ καὶ ἀποκτενεῖ με. καὶ εἶπε Κύριος· δάμαλιν βοῶν λαβὲ ἐν τῇ χειρί σου καὶ ἐρεῖς· θῦσαι τῷ Κυρίῳ ἥκω· 3 καὶ καλέσεις τὸν ᾿Ιεσσαὶ εἰς τὴν θυσίαν, καὶ γνωριῶ σοι ἃ ποιήσεις, καὶ χρίσεις ὃν ἂν εἴπω πρός σε. 4 καὶ ἐποίησε Σαμουὴλ πάντα, ἃ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ Κύριος, καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς Βηθλεέμ. καὶ ἐξέστησαν οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τῆς πόλεως τῇ ἀπαντήσει αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπαν· εἰρήνη ἡ εἴσοδός σου, ὁ βλέπων; 5 καὶ εἶπεν· εἰρήνη· θῦσαι τῷ Κυρίῳ ἥκω, ἁγιάσθητε καὶ εὐφράνθητε μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ σήμερον, καὶ ἡγίασε τὸν ᾿Ιεσσαὶ καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν θυσίαν. 6 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ εἰσιέναι αὐτοὺς καὶ εἶδε τὸν ᾿Ελιὰβ καὶ εἶπεν· ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐνώπιον Κυρίου χριστὸς αὐτοῦ. 7 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς Σαμουήλ· μὴ ἐπιβλέψῃς ἐπὶ τὴν ὄψιν αὐτοῦ μηδὲ εἰς τὴν ἕξιν μεγέθους αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐξουδένωκα αὐτόν· ὅτι οὐχ ὡς ἐμβλέψεται ἄνθρωπος, ὄψεται ὁ Θεός, ὅτι ἄνθρωπος ὄψεται εἰς πρόσωπον, ὁ δὲ Θεὸς ὄψεται εἰς καρδίαν. 8 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ᾿Ιεσσαὶ τὸν ᾿Αμιναδάβ, καὶ παρῆλθε κατὰ πρόσωπον Σαμουήλ, καὶ εἶπεν· οὐδὲ τοῦτον ἐξελέξατο ὁ Θεός. 9 καὶ παρήγαγεν ᾿Ιεσσαὶ τὸν Σαμά· καὶ εἶπε· καὶ ἐν τούτῳ οὐκ ἐξελέξατο Κύριος. 10 καὶ παρήγαγεν ᾿Ιεσσαὶ τοὺς ἑπτὰ υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐνώπιον Σαμουήλ· καὶ εἶπε Σαμουήλ· οὐκ ἐξελέξατο Κύριος ἐν τούτοις. 11 καὶ εἶπε Σαμουὴλ πρὸς ᾿Ιεσσαί· ἐκλελοίπασι τὰ παιδάρια; καὶ εἶπεν· ἔτι ὁ μικρὸς ἰδοὺ ποιμαίνει ἐν τῷ ποιμνίῳ. καὶ εἶπε Σαμουὴλ πρὸς ᾿Ιεσσαί· ἀπόστειλον καὶ λαβὲ αὐτόν, ὅτι οὐ μὴ κατακλιθῶμεν ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν αὐτόν. 12 καὶ ἀπέστειλε καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτόν· καὶ αὐτὸς πυρράκης μετὰ κάλλους ὀφθαλμῶν καὶ ἀγαθὸς ὁράσει Κυρίῳ. καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς Σαμουήλ· ἀνάστα καὶ χρῖσον τὸν Δαυίδ, ὅτι οὗτός ἐστιν ἀγαθός. 13 καὶ ἔλαβε Σαμουὴλ τὸ κέρας τοῦ ἐλαίου καὶ ἔχρισεν αὐτὸ ἐν μέσῳ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐφήλατο πνεῦμα Κυρίου ἐπὶ Δαυὶδ ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης καὶ ἐπάνω. καὶ ἀνέστη Σαμουὴλ καὶ ἀπῆλθεν εἰς ᾿Αρμαθαίμ. 14 Καὶ πνεῦμα Κυρίου ἀπέστη ἀπὸ Σαούλ, καὶ ἔπνιγεν αὐτὸν πνεῦμα πονηρὸν παρὰ Κυρίου. 15 καὶ εἶπαν οἱ παῖδες Σαοὺλ πρὸς αὐτόν· ἰδοὺ δὴ πνεῦμα Κυρίου πονηρὸν πνίγει σε· 16 εἰπάτωσαν δὴ οἱ δοῦλοί σου ἐνώπιόν σου, καὶ ζητησάτωσαν τῷ Κυρίῳ ἡμῶν ἄνδρα εἰδότα ψάλλειν ἐν κινύρᾳ, καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ εἶναι πνεῦμα πονηρὸν ἐπί σοι καὶ ψαλῇ ἐν τῇ κινύρᾳ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀγαθόν σοι ἔσται καὶ ἀναπαύσει σε. 17 καὶ εἶπε Σαοὺλ πρὸς τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ· ἴδετε δή μοι ἄνδρα ὀρθῶς ψάλλοντα καὶ εἰσαγάγετε αὐτὸν πρός με. 18 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη εἷς τῶν παιδαρίων αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ ἑώρακα υἱὸν τῷ ᾿Ιεσσαὶ Βηθλεεμίτην καὶ αὐτὸν εἰδότα ψαλμόν, καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ συνετὸς καὶ πολεμιστὴς καὶ σοφὸς λόγῳ, καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ ἀγαθὸς τῷ εἴδει, καὶ Κύριος μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 19 καὶ ἀπέστειλε Σαοὺλ ἀγγέλους πρὸς ᾿Ιεσσαὶ λέγων· ἀπόστειλον πρός με τὸν υἱόν σου Δαυὶδ τὸν ἐν τῷ ποιμνίῳ σου. 20 καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ιεσσαὶ γομὸρ ἄρτων καὶ ἀσκὸν οἶνου καὶ ἔριφον αἰγῶν ἕνα καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν ἐν χειρὶ Δαυὶδ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ πρὸς Σαούλ. 21 καὶ εἰσῆλθε Δαυὶδ πρὸς Σαοὺλ καὶ παρειστήκει ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἠγάπησεν αὐτὸν σφόδρα, καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτῷ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ. 22 καὶ ἀπέστειλε Σαοὺλ πρὸς ᾿Ιεσσαὶ λέγων· παριστάσθω δὴ Δαυὶδ ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ, ὅτι εὗρε χάριν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς μου. 23 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ εἶναι πνεῦμα πονηρὸν ἐπὶ Σαοὺλ καὶ ἐλάμβανε Δαυὶδ τὴν κινύραν καὶ ἔψαλλεν ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἀνέψυχε Σαούλ, καὶ ἀγαθὸν αὐτῷ. καὶ ἀφίστατο ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ πονηρόν.
