1 Samuel 13:13-18

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 13

13 But Samuel said to Saul, 'You have acted foolishly! You have not kept the commandment of the LORD your God, which He commanded you, for the LORD would now have established your kingdom over Israel forever. 14 But now your kingdom shall not endure. The LORD has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the LORD has appointed him ruler over His people, because you have not kept what the LORD commanded you.'
15 Then Samuel set out and went up from Gilgal to Gibeah of Benjamin. And Saul counted the people who were present with him, about six hundred men. 16 Now Saul, his son Jonathan, and the people who were present with them were staying in Geba of Benjamin while the Philistines camped at Michmash. 17 Then raiders came from the camp of the Philistines in three companies: one company turned toward Ophrah, to the land of Shual, 18 and another company turned toward Beth-horon, and another company turned toward the border that overlooks the Valley of Zeboim toward the wilderness.
King James Version

Chapter 13

13 And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the LORD thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the LORD have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. 14 But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the LORD commanded thee.
15 And Samuel arose, and gat him up from Gilgal unto Gibeah of Benjamin. And Saul numbered the people that were present with him, about six hundred men. 16 And Saul, and Jonathan his son, and the people that were present with them, abode in Gibeah of Benjamin: but the Philistines encamped in Michmash. 17 And the spoilers came out of the camp of the Philistines in three companies: one company turned unto the way that leadeth to Ophrah, unto the land of Shual: 18 And another company turned the way to Bethhoron: and another company turned to the way of the border that looketh to the valley of Zeboim toward the wilderness.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 13

13 Samuel said to Saul, "You have been foolish. You have not kept the command the Lord your God gave you. It was at this time that the Lord would have permanently established your reign over Israel, 14 but now your reign will not endure. The Lord has found a man after his own heart, and the Lord has appointed him as ruler over his people, because you have not done what the Lord commanded." 15 Then Samuel went from Gilgal to Gibeah in Benjamin. Saul registered the troops who were with him, about six hundred men.
16 Saul, his son Jonathan, and the troops who were with them were staying in Geba of Benjamin, and the Philistines were camped at Michmash. 17 Raiding parties went out from the Philistine camp in three divisions. One division headed toward the Ophrah road leading to the land of Shual. 18 The next division headed toward the Beth-horon road, and the last division headed down the border road that looks out over the Zeboim Valley toward the wilderness.

Chapter 13

13 'How foolish!' Samuel exclaimed. 'You have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you. Had you kept it, the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever. 14 But now your kingdom must end, for the LORD has sought out a man after his own heart. The LORD has already appointed him to be the leader of his people, because you have not kept the LORD's command.'
15 Samuel then left Gilgal and went on his way, but the rest of the troops went with Saul to meet the army. They went up from Gilgal to Gibeah in the land of Benjamin. When Saul counted the men who were still with him, he found only 600 were left! 16 Saul and Jonathan and the troops with them were staying at Geba in the land of Benjamin. The Philistines set up their camp at Micmash. 17 Three raiding parties soon left the camp of the Philistines. One went north toward Ophrah in the land of Shual, 18 another went west to Beth-horon, and the third moved toward the border above the valley of Zeboim near the wilderness.

Chapter 13

13 And Samuel said to Saul, “You have done foolishly. You have not kept the command of the LORD your God, with which he commanded you. For then the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever. 14 But now your kingdom shall not continue. The LORD has sought out a man after his own heart, and the LORD has commanded him to be prince over his people, because you have not kept what the LORD commanded you.” 15 And Samuel arose and went up from Gilgal. The rest of the people went up after Saul to meet the army; they went up from Gilgal to Gibeah of Benjamin. And Saul numbered the people who were present with him, about six hundred men.
16 And Saul and Jonathan his son and the people who were present with them stayed in Geba of Benjamin, but the Philistines encamped in Michmash. 17 And raiders came out of the camp of the Philistines in three companies. One company turned toward Ophrah, to the land of Shual; 18 another company turned toward Beth-horon; and another company turned toward the border that looks down on the Valley of Zeboim toward the wilderness.

Chapter 13

13 You have done a foolish thing,' Samuel said. 'You have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you; if you had, he would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time. 14 But now your kingdom will not endure; the LORD has sought out a man after his own heart and appointed him ruler of his people, because you have not kept the LORD's command.'
15 Then Samuel left Gilgal and went up to Gibeah in Benjamin, and Saul counted the men who were with him. They numbered about six hundred.
16 Saul and his son Jonathan and the men with them were staying in Gibeah in Benjamin, while the Philistines camped at Mikmash. 17 Raiding parties went out from the Philistine camp in three detachments. One turned toward Ophrah in the vicinity of Shual, 18 another toward Beth Horon, and the third toward the borderland overlooking the Valley of Zeboyim facing the wilderness.

Chapter 13

13 Y Samuel dijo a Saúl: Has obrado neciamente ; no has guardado el mandamiento que el SEÑOR tu Dios te ordenó, pues ahora el SEÑOR hubiera establecido tu reino sobre Israel para siempre. 14 Pero ahora tu reino no perdurará. El SEÑOR ha buscado para sí un hombre conforme a su corazón, y el SEÑOR le ha designado como príncipe sobre su pueblo porque tú no guardaste lo que el SEÑOR te ordenó.
15 Entonces Samuel se levantó y subió de Gilgal a Guibeá de Benjamín. Y Saúl contó el pueblo que se hallaba con él, como seiscientos hombres. 16 Y Saúl, su hijo Jonatán y el pueblo que se hallaba con ellos, estaban situados en Geba de Benjamín, mientras los filisteos acampaban en Micmas. 17 Y salieron los merodeadores del campamento de los filisteos en tres compañías ; una compañía se dirigió por el camino de Ofra, a la tierra de Sual, 18 otra compañía se dirigió por el camino de Bet-horón y la otra compañía se dirigió por el camino de la frontera que mira sobre el valle de Zeboim, hacia el desierto.

Chapter 13

13 ?¡Te has portado como un necio! —le replicó Samuel—. No has cumplido el mandato que te dio el SEÑOR tu Dios. El SEÑOR habría establecido tu reino sobre Israel para siempre, 14 pero ahora te digo que tu reino no permanecerá. El SEÑOR ya está buscando un hombre más de su agrado y lo ha designado gobernante de su pueblo, pues tú no has cumplido su mandato.
15 Dicho esto, Samuel se fue de Guilgal hacia Guibeá de Benjamín. Saúl pasó revista de los soldados que estaban con él, y eran unos seiscientos hombres. 16 Él y su hijo Jonatán, junto con sus soldados, se quedaron en Gueba de Benjamín, mientras que los filisteos seguían acampados en Micmás. 17 Del campamento filisteo salió una tropa de asalto dividida en tres grupos: uno de ellos avanzó por el camino de Ofra, hacia el territorio de Súal; 18 otro, por Bet Jorón; y el tercero, por la frontera del valle de Zeboyín, en dirección al desierto.

Chapter 13

13 Entonces Samuel dijo a Saúl: Locamente has hecho; no guardaste el mandamiento de Jehová tu Dios que él te había ordenado; pues ahora Jehová hubiera confirmado tu reino sobre Israel para siempre. 14 Mas ahora tu reino no será duradero. Jehová se ha buscado un varón conforme a su corazón, al cual Jehová ha designado para que sea príncipe sobre su pueblo, por cuanto tú no has guardado lo que Jehová te mandó.
15 Y levantándose Samuel, subió de Gilgal a Gabaa de Benjamín. Y Saúl contó la gente que se hallaba con él, como seiscientos hombres. 16 Saúl, pues, y Jonatán su hijo, y el pueblo que con ellos se hallaba, se quedaron en Gabaa de Benjamín; pero los filisteos habían acampado en Micmas. 17 Y salieron merodeadores del campamento de los filisteos en tres escuadrones; un escuadrón marchaba por el camino de Ofra hacia la tierra de Sual, 18 otro escuadrón marchaba hacia Bet-horón, y el tercer escuadrón marchaba hacia la región que mira al valle de Zeboim, hacia el desierto.

13 Entonces Samuel dijo a Saúl: Locamente has hecho; no guardaste el mandamiento del SEÑOR tu Dios, que él te había mandado; porque ahora el SEÑOR hubiera confirmado tu reino sobre Israel para siempre. 14 Mas ahora tu reino no estará: El SEÑOR se ha buscado varón según su corazón, al cual el SEÑOR ha mandado que sea capitán sobre su pueblo, por cuanto tú no has guardado lo que el SEÑOR te mandó. 15 Y levantándose Samuel, subió de Gilgal a Gabaa de Benjamín. Y Saúl contó el pueblo que se hallaba con él, como seiscientos hombres. 16 Saúl, pues, y Jonatán su hijo, y el pueblo que con ellos se hallaba, se quedaron en Gabaa de Benjamín; mas los filisteos habían puesto su campamento en Micmas. 17 Y salieron del campamento de los filisteos tres escuadrones a destruir la tierra. Un escuadrón marchaba por el camino de Ofra hacia la tierra de Sual. 18 Otro escuadrón marchaba hacia Bet-horón, y el tercer escuadrón marchaba hacia la región que mira al valle de Zeboim hacia el desierto.
