And he said, “Bring up Samuel for me.”
And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is covered with oa mantle.” And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground and bowed down.
15 Now Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you pdisturbed me by bringing me up?”
And Saul answered, “I am deeply distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and qGod has departed from me and rdoes not answer me anymore, neither by prophets nor by dreams. Therefore I have called you, that you may reveal to me what I should do.”
16 Then Samuel said: “So why do you ask me, seeing the Lord has departed from you and has become your enemy? 17 And the Lord has done for 2Himself sas He spoke by me. For the Lord has torn the kingdom out of your hand and given it to your neighbor, David. 18 tBecause you did not obey the voice of the Lord nor execute His fierce wrath upon uAmalek, therefore the Lord has done this thing to you this day. 19 Moreover the Lord will also deliver Israel with you into the hand of the Philistines. And tomorrow you and your sons will be with vme. The Lord will also deliver the army of Israel into the hand of the Philistines.”
