1 Samuel 28:11–19

11 Then the woman said, “Whom shall I bring up for you?” And he said, “Bring up Samuel for me.”

12 When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out with a loud voice; and the woman spoke to Saul, saying, “Why have you deceived me? For you are Saul.”

13 The king said to her, “Do not be afraid; but what do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a 1divine being coming up out of the earth.”

14 He said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and ahe is wrapped with a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel, and bhe bowed with his face to the ground and did homage.

15 Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” And Saul answered, “I am greatly distressed; for the Philistines are waging war against me, and aGod has departed from me and bno longer answers me, either through prophets or by dreams; therefore I have called you, that you may make known to me what I should do.”

16 Samuel said, “Why then do you ask me, since the Lord has departed from you and has become your adversary?

17 “The Lord has done 1accordingly aas He spoke through me; for the Lord has torn the kingdom out of your hand and given it to your neighbor, to David.

18 “As ayou did not 1obey the Lord and did not execute His fierce wrath on Amalek, so the Lord has done this thing to you this day.

19 “Moreover the Lord will also give over Israel along with you into the hands of the Philistines, therefore tomorrow ayou and your sons will be with me. Indeed the Lord will give over the army of Israel into the hands of the Philistines!”
