16 “Tomorrow about this time I will send to you a man from the land of Benjamin, uand you shall anoint him to be prince1 over my people Israel. He shall save my people from the hand of the Philistines. vFor I have seen2 my people, because their cry has come to me.” 17 When Samuel saw Saul, the Lord told him, w“Here is the man of whom I spoke to you! He it is who shall restrain my people.”
11 wI gave you a king in my anger,
and xI took him away in my wrath.
