Original text and translations
Now the Lord had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came, saying:
Tomorrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin,
and thou shalt anoint him to be captain over my people Israel,
that he may save my people out of the hand of the Philistines:
for I have looked upon my people, because their cry is come unto me.
The Lord said unto him:
Behold the man whom I spake to thee of!
This same shall reign over my people.
