1 Samuel 10

1 Samuel 10:20-27
10:20 When Samuel brought all the tribes of Israel near, the tribe of Benjamin was chosen [probably by means of casting lots; cf. Prov. 16:33; God made His will known].

10:21 Then he brought forward the tribe of Benjamin [a small (and insignificant) tribe], clan by clan, and Matri’s clan was chosen. Finally Saul son of Kish was chosen. But when they looked for him, he was not to be found.

10:22 Saul hiding among the baggage.

10:23 Saul brought before the people. Saul stood a head taller than others.

10:24 Samuel said to all the people, “Do you see [1] the man the LORD has chosen? There is [2] no one like him among all the people.” Then the people shouted [indicates great excitement; the people were satisfied with the new king], “Long live the king!”

10:25 Samuel explained regulations of the kingship. People dismissed to go home.

10:26 Saul returned to his home with valient men.

10:27 Not everyone (troublemakers) accepted Saul.
