1 Samuel 16
- "The Lord said to Samuel, ""How long will you grieve over Saul, seeing I have rejected him from being king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go; I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite, for I have provided for myself a king among his sons."" "
- "And Samuel said, ""How can I go? If Saul hears it, he will kill me."" And the Lord said, ""Take a heifer with you, and say, 'I have come to sacrifice to the Lord.' "
- "And invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do; and you shall anoint for me him whom I name to you."" "
