1 Samuel 15 Text (WEB)
  1. Samuel said to Saul, "Yahweh sent me to anoint you to be king over his people, over Israel. Now therefore listen to the voice of the words of Yahweh.
  2. Thus says Yahweh of Armies, 'I have marked that which Amalek did to Israel, how he set himself against him in the way, when he came up out of Egypt.
  3. Now go and strike Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and don't spare them; but kill both man and woman, infant and nursing baby, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.'"
  4. Saul summoned the people, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.
  5. Saul came to the city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley.
  6. Saul said to the Kenites, "Go, depart, go down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them; for you showed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt." So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.
  7. Saul struck the Amalekites, from Havilah as you go to Shur, that is before Egypt.
  8. He took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.
  9. But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the cattle, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and wouldn't utterly destroy them: but everything that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly.
  10. Then the word of Yahweh came to Samuel, saying,
  11. "It grieves me that I have set up Saul to be king; for he is turned back from following me, and has not performed my commandments." Samuel was angry; and he cried to Yahweh all night.
  12. Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning; and it was told Samuel, saying, "Saul came to Carmel, and behold, he set up a monument for himself, and turned, and passed on, and went down to Gilgal."
  13. Samuel came to Saul; and Saul said to him, "You are blessed by Yahweh! I have performed the commandment of Yahweh."
  14. Samuel said, "Then what does this bleating of the sheep in my ears, and the lowing of the cattle which I hear mean?"
  15. Saul said, "They have brought them from the Amalekites; for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the cattle, to sacrifice to Yahweh your God. We have utterly destroyed the rest."
  16. Then Samuel said to Saul, "Stay, and I will tell you what Yahweh has said to me last night." He said to him, "Say on."
  17. Samuel said, "Though you were little in your own sight, weren't you made the head of the tribes of Israel? Yahweh anointed you king over Israel;
  18. and Yahweh sent you on a journey, and said, 'Go, and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they are consumed.'
  19. Why then didn't you obey the voice of Yahweh, but took the spoils, and did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh?"
  20. Saul said to Samuel, "But I have obeyed the voice of Yahweh, and have gone the way which Yahweh sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.
  21. But the people took of the spoil, sheep and cattle, the chief of the devoted things, to sacrifice to Yahweh your God in Gilgal."
  22. Samuel said, "Has Yahweh as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of Yahweh? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams.
  23. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim. Because you have rejected the word of Yahweh, he has also rejected you from being king."
  24. Saul said to Samuel, "I have sinned; for I have transgressed the commandment of Yahweh, and your words, because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.
  25. Now therefore, please pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship Yahweh."
  26. Samuel said to Saul, "I will not return with you; for you have rejected the word of Yahweh, and Yahweh has rejected you from being king over Israel."
  27. As Samuel turned about to go away, Saul grabbed the skirt of his robe, and it tore.
  28. Samuel said to him, "Yahweh has torn the kingdom of Israel from you this day, and has given it to a neighbor of yours who is better than you.
  29. Also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent; for he is not a man, that he should repent."
  30. Then he said, "I have sinned: yet please honor me now before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and come back with me, that I may worship Yahweh your God."
  31. So Samuel went back with Saul; and Saul worshiped Yahweh.
  32. Then Samuel said, "Bring here to me Agag the king of the Amalekites!" Agag came to him cheerfully. Agag said, "Surely the bitterness of death is past."
  33. Samuel said, "As your sword has made women childless, so your mother will be childless among women!" Samuel cut Agag in pieces before Yahweh in Gilgal.
  34. Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house to Gibeah of Saul.
  35. Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his death; for Samuel mourned for Saul: and Yahweh grieved that he had made Saul king over Israel.

  1. ויאמר שמואל אל־שאול אתי שלח יהוה למשחך למלך על־עמו על־ישראל ועתה שמע לקול דברי יהוה׃ ס
  2. כה אמר יהוה צבאות פקדתי את אשר־עשה עמלק לישראל אשר־שם לו בדרך בעלתו ממצרים׃
  3. עתה לך והכיתה את־עמלק והחרמתם את־כל־אשר־לו ולא תחמל עליו והמתה מאיש עד־אשה מעלל ועד־יונק משור ועד־שה מגמל ועד־חמור׃ ס
  4. וישמע שאול את־העם ויפקדם בטלאים מאתים אלף רגלי ועשרת אלפים את־איש יהודה׃
  5. ויבא שאול עד־עיר עמלק וירב בנחל׃
  6. ויאמר שאול אל־הקיני לכו סרו רדו מתוך עמלקי פן־אספך עמו ואתה עשיתה חסד עם־כל־בני ישראל בעלותם ממצרים ויסר קיני מתוך עמלק׃
  7. ויך שאול את־עמלק מחוילה בואך שור אשר על־פני מצרים׃
  8. ויתפש את־אגג מלך־עמלק חי ואת־כל־העם החרים לפי־חרב׃
  9. ויחמל שאול והעם על־אגג ועל־מיטב הצאן והבקר והמשנים ועל־הכרים ועל־כל־הטוב ולא אבו החריםם וכל־המלאכה נמבזה ונמס אתה החרימו׃ ף
  10. ויהי דבר־יהוה אל־שמואל לאמר׃

  14. ויאמר שמואל ומה קול־הצאן הזה באזני וקול הבקר אשר אנכי שמע׃
  15. ויאמר שאול מעמלקי הביאום אשר חמל העם על־מיטב הצאן והבקר למען זבח ליהוה אלהיך ואת־היותר החרמנו׃ ס
  16. ויאמר שמואל אל־שאול הרף ואגידה לך את אשר דבר יהוה אלי הלילה לו דבר׃ ס
  17. ויאמר שמואל הלוא אם־קטן אתה בעיניך ראש שבטי ישראל אתה וימשחך יהוה למלך על־ישראל׃
  18. וישלחך יהוה בדרך ויאמר לך והחרמתה את־החטאים את־עמלק ונלחמת בו עד כלותם אתם׃
  19. ולמה לא־שמעת בקול יהוה ותעט אל־השלל ותעש הרע בעיני יהוה׃ ס
  20. ויאמר שאול אל־שמואל אשר שמעתי בקול יהוה ואלך בדרך אשר־שלחני יהוה ואביא את־אגג מלך עמלק ואת־עמלק החרמתי׃
  21. ויקח העם מהשלל צאן ובקר ראשית החרם לזבח ליהוה אלהיך בגלגל׃
  22. ויאמר שמואל החפץ ליהוה בעלות וזבחים כשמע בקול יהוה הנה שמע מזבח טוב להקשיב מחלב אילים׃
  23. כי חטאת־קסם מרי ואון ותרפים הפצר יען מאסת את־דבר יהוה וימאסך ממלך׃ ס
  24. ויאמר שאול אל־שמואל חטאתי כי־עברתי את־פי־יהוה ואת־דבריך כי יראתי את־העם ואשמע בקולם׃
  25. ועתה שא נא את־חטאתי ושוב עמי ואשתחוה ליהוה׃
  26. ויאמר שמואל אל־שאול לא אשוב עמך כי מאסתה את־דבר יהוה וימאסך יהוה מהיות מלך על־ישראל׃ ס
  27. ויסב שמואל ללכת ויחזק בכנף־מעילו ויקרע׃
  28. ויאמר אליו שמואל קרע יהוה את־ממלכות ישראל מעליך היום ונתנה לרעך הטוב ממך׃
  29. וגם נצח ישראל לא ישקר ולא ינחם כי לא אדם הוא להנחם׃
  30. ויאמר חטאתי עתה כבדני נא נגד זקני־עמי ונגד ישראל ושוב עמי והשתחויתי ליהוה אלהיך׃
  31. וישב שמואל אחרי שאול וישתחו שאול ליהוה׃ ס
  32. ויאמר שמואל הגישו אלי את־אגג מלך עמלק וילך אליו אגג מעדנת ויאמר אגג אכן סר מר־המות׃ ס
  33. ויאמר שמואל כאשר שכלה נשים חרבך כן־תשכל מנשים אמך וישסף שמואל את־אגג לפני יהוה בגלגל׃ ס
  34. וילך שמואל הרמתה ושאול עלה אל־ביתו גבעת שאול׃
  35. ולא־יסף שמואל לראות את־שאול עד־יום מותו כי־התאבל שמואל אל־שאול ויהוה נחם כי־המליך את־שאול על־ישראל׃ ף

  1. και ειπεν σαμουηλ προς σαουλ εμε απεστειλεν κυριος χρισαι σε εις βασιλεα επι ισραηλ και νυν ακουε της φωνης

  13. και παρεγενετο σαμουηλ προς σαουλ και ειπεν αυτω σαουλ ευλογητος συ τω κυριω εστησα παντα οσα ελαλησεν
  14. και ειπεν σαμουηλ και τις η φωνη του ποιμνιου τουτου εν τοις ωσιν μου και φωνη των βοων ων εγω
  15. και ειπεν σαουλ εξ αμαληκ ηνεγκα αυτα α περιεποιησατο ο λαος τα κρατιστα του ποιμνιου και των βοων οπως τυθη τω κυριω θεω σου και τα λοιπα
  16. και ειπεν σαμουηλ προς σαουλ ανες και απαγγελω σοι α ελαλησεν κυριος προς με την νυκτα και ειπεν αυτω
  17. και ειπεν σαμουηλ προς σαουλ ουχι μικρος συ ει ενωπιον αυτου ηγουμενος σκηπτρου φυλης ισραηλ και εχρισεν σε κυριος εις βασιλεα επι
  18. και απεστειλεν σε κυριος εν οδω και ειπεν σοι πορευθητι και εξολεθρευσον τους αμαρτανοντας εις εμε τον αμαληκ και πολεμησεις αυτους εως συντελεσης
  19. και ινα τι ουκ ηκουσας της φωνης κυριου αλλ' ωρμησας του θεσθαι επι τα σκυλα και εποιησας το πονηρον ενωπιον

1 Samuel 15 Text (Latin)
  1. Et dixit Samuel ad Saul : Me misit Dominus, ut ungerem te in regem super populum ejus Israël : nunc ergo audi vocem Domini.
  2. Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Recensui quæcumque fecit Amalec Israëli : quomodo restitit ei in via cum ascenderet de Ægypto.
  3. Nunc ergo vade, et percute Amalec, et demolire universa ejus : non parcas ei, et non concupiscas ex rebus ipsius aliquid, sed interfice a viro usque ad mulierem, et parvulum atque lactentem, bovem et ovem, camelum et asinum.
  4. Præcepit itaque Saul populo, et recensuit eos quasi agnos : ducenta millia peditum, et decem millia virorum Juda.
  5. Cumque venisset Saul usque ad civitatem Amalec, tetendit insidias in torrente.
  6. Dixitque Saul Cinæo : Abite, recedite, atque descendite ab Amalec : ne forte involvam te cum eo : tu enim fecisti misericordiam cum omnibus filiis Israël, cum ascenderent de Ægypto. Et recessit Cinæus de medio Amalec.
  7. Percussitque Saul Amalec ab Hevila, donec venias ad Sur, quæ est e regione Ægypti.
  8. Et apprehendit Agag regem Amalec vivum : omne autem vulgus interfecit in ore gladii.
  9. Et pepercit Saul et populus Agag, et optimis gregibus ovium et armentorum, et vestibus et arietibus, et universis quæ pulchra erant, nec voluerunt disperdere ea : quidquid vero vile fuit et reprobum, hoc demoliti sunt.
  10. Factum est autem verbum Domini ad Samuel, dicens :
  11. Pœnitet me quod constituerim Saul regem : quia dereliquit me et verba mea opere non implevit. Contristatusque est Samuel, et clamavit ad Dominum tota nocte.
  12. Cumque de nocte surrexisset Samuel, ut iret ad Saul mane, nuntiatum est Samueli, eo quod venisset Saul in Carmelum, et erexisset sibi fornicem triumphalem, et reversus transisset, descendissetque in Galgala. Venit ergo Samuel ad Saul, et Saul offerebat holocaustum Domino de initiis prædarum quæ attulerat ex Amalec.
  13. Et cum venisset Samuel ad Saul, dixit ei Saul : Benedictus tu Domino, implevi verbum Domini.
  14. Dixitque Samuel : Et quæ est hæc vox gregum, quæ resonat in auribus meis, et armentorum, quam ego audio ?
  15. Et ait Saul : De Amalec adduxerunt ea : pepercit enim populus melioribus ovibus et armentis ut immolarentur Domino Deo tuo, reliqua vero occidimus.
  16. Ait autem Samuel ad Saul : Sine me, et indicabo tibi quæ locutus sit Dominus ad me nocte. Dixitque ei : Loquere.
  17. Et ait Samuel : Nonne cum parvulus esses in oculis tuis, caput in tribubus Israël factus es ? unxitque te Dominus in regem super Israël,
  18. et misit te Dominus in viam, et ait : Vade, et interfice peccatores Amalec, et pugnabis contra eos usque ad internecionem eorum ?
  19. Quare ergo non audisti vocem Domini : sed versus ad prædam es, et fecisti malum in oculis Domini ?
  20. Et ait Saul ad Samuelem : Immo audivi vocem Domini, et ambulavi in via per quam misit me Dominus, et adduxi Agag regem Amalec, et Amalec interfeci.
  21. Tulit autem de præda populus oves et boves, primitias eorum quæ cæsa sunt, ut immolet Domino Deo suo in Galgalis.
  22. Et ait Samuel : Numquid vult Dominus holocausta et victimas, et non potius ut obediatur voci Domini ? Melior est enim obedientia quam victimæ : et auscultare magis quam offerre adipem arietum.
  23. Quoniam quasi peccatum ariolandi est, repugnare : et quasi scelus idololatriæ, nole acquiescere. Pro eo ergo quod abjecisti sermonem Domini, abjecit te Dominus ne sis rex.
  24. Dixitque Saul ad Samuelem : Peccavi, quia prævaricatus sum sermonem Domini, et verba tua, timens populum, et obediens voci eorum.
  25. Sed nunc porta, quæso, peccatum meum, et revertere mecum, ut adorem Dominum.
  26. Et ait Samuel ad Saul : Non revertar tecum, quia projecisti sermonem Domini, et projecit te Dominus ne sis rex super Israël.
  27. Et conversus est Samuel ut abiret : ille autem apprehendit summitatem pallii ejus, quæ et scissa est.
  28. Et ait ad eum Samuel : Scidit Dominus regnum Israël a te hodie, et tradidit illud proximo tuo meliori te.
  29. Porro triumphator in Israël non parcet, et pœnitudine non flectetur : neque enim homo est ut agat pœnitentiam.
  30. At ille ait : Peccavi : sed nunc honora me coram senioribus populi mei, et coram Israël, et revertere mecum, ut adorem Dominum Deum tuum.
  31. Reversus ergo Samuel secutus est Saulem : et adoravit Saul Dominum.
  32. Dixitque Samuel : Adducite ad me Agag regem Amalec. Et oblatus est ei Agag pinguissimus, et tremens. Et dixit Agag : Siccine separat amara mors ?
  33. Et ait Samuel : Sicut fecit absque liberis mulieres gladius tuus, sic absque liberis erit inter mulieres mater tua. Et in frustra concidit eum Samuel coram Domino in Galgalis.
  34. Abiit autem Samuel in Ramatha : Saul vero ascendit in domum suam in Gabaa.
  35. Et non vidit Samuel ultra Saul usque ad diem mortis suæ : verumtamen lugebat Samuel Saulem, quoniam Dominum pœnitebat quod constituisset eum regem super Israël.
1 Samuel 15 Text (KJV)
  1. Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD.
  2. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.
  3. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
  4. And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.
  5. And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley.
  6. And Saul said unto the Kenites, Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt. So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.
  7. And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur, that is over against Egypt.
  8. And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.
  9. But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly.
  10. Then came the word of the LORD unto Samuel, saying,
  11. It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.
  12. And when Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning, it was told Samuel, saying, Saul came to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a place, and is gone about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal.
  13. And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the LORD: I have performed the commandment of the LORD.
  14. And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?
  15. And Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.
  16. Then Samuel said unto Saul, Stay, and I will tell thee what the LORD hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on.
  17. And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?
  18. And the LORD sent thee on a journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed.
  19. Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD?
  20. And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.
  21. But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal.
  22. And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
  23. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
  24. And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.
  25. Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD.
  26. And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.
  27. And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent.
  28. And Samuel said unto him, The LORD hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.
  29. And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.
  30. Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD thy God.
  31. So Samuel turned again after Saul; and Saul worshipped the LORD.
  32. Then said Samuel, Bring ye hither to me Agag the king of the Amalekites. And Agag came unto him delicately. And Agag said, Surely the bitterness of death is past.
  33. And Samuel said, As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.
  34. Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house to Gibeah of Saul.
  35. And Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his death: nevertheless Samuel mourned for Saul: and the LORD repented that he had made Saul king over Israel.
