11 And all that had known him yesterday and the day before, seeing that he was with the prophets, and prophesied, said to each other: What is this that hath happened to the son of Cis? Is Saul also among the prophets? 12 And one answered another, saying: And who is their father? therefore it became a proverb: Is Saul also among the prophets? 13 And when he had made an end of prophesying, he came to the high place. 14 And Saul's uncle said to him, and to his servant: Whither went you? They answered: To seek the asses: and not finding them we went to Samuel. 15 And his uncle said to him: Tell me what Samuel said to thee.
12 "Their father"... That is, their teacher, or superior. As much as to say, Who could bring about such a wonderful change as to make Saul a prophet?
16 And Saul said to his uncle: He told us that the asses were found. But of the matter of the kingdom of which Samuel had spoken to him, he told him not. 17 And Samuel called together the people to the Lord in Maspha: 18 And he said to the children of Israel: Thus saith the Lord the God of Israel: I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and delivered you from the hand of the Egyptians, and from the hand of all the kings who afflicted you. 19 But you this day have rejected your God, who only hath saved you out of all your evils and your tribulations: and you have said: Nay: but set a king over us. Now therefore stand before the Lord by your tribes, and by your families. 20 And Samuel brought to him all the tribes of Israel, and the lot fell on the tribe of Benjamin.
