1 Samuel 9:16-17New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 “About this time tomorrow I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin, and you shall anoint him to be prince over My people Israel; and he will deliver My people from the hand of the Philistines. For I have regarded My people, because their cry has come to Me.”17 When Samuel saw Saul, the Lord[a]said to him, “Behold, the man of whom I spoke to you! This one shall rule over My people.”
3 Then you will go on further from there, and you will come as far as the [a]oak of Tabor, and there three men going up to God at Bethel will meet you, one carrying three young goats, another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a jug of wine;4 and they will greet you and give you two loaves of bread, which you will accept from their hand.5 Afterward you will come to [b]the hill of God where the Philistine garrison is; and it shall be as soon as you have come there to the city, that you will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place with harp, tambourine, flute, and a lyre before them, and they will be prophesying.6 Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you shall prophesy with them and be changed into another man.7 It shall be when these signs come to you, do for yourself what [c]the occasion requires, for God is with you.
