1 Samuel 9:15-17 International Standard Version (ISV)

The Lord’s Revelation to Samuel

15 Now one day before Saul’s arrival, the Lord had revealed to[a] Samuel: 16 “About this time tomorrow I’ll send you a man from the land of Benjamin, and you are to anoint him as Commander-in-Chief[b] over my people Israel. He’ll deliver my people from the control[c] of the Philistines, because I’ve seen the suffering of[d] my people and because their cry has come up to me.” 17 When Samuel saw Saul, the Lord told him, “Here is the man I told you about. This man will rule over my people.”
