1 Samuel 15:24-30

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 15

24 Then Saul said to Samuel, 'I have sinned, for I have violated the command of the LORD and your words, because I feared the people and listened to their voice. 25 Now then, please pardon my sin and return with me, so that I may worship the LORD.' 26 But Samuel said to Saul, 'I will not return with you; for you have rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD has rejected you from being king over Israel.' 27 Then Samuel turned to go, but Saul grasped the edge of his robe, and it tore off. 28 So Samuel said to him, 'The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you today and has given it to your neighbor, who is better than you. 29 Also the Glory of Israel will not lie nor change His mind; for He is not a man, that He would change His mind.' 30 Then Saul said, 'I have sinned; but please honor me now before the elders of my people and before all Israel, and go back with me, so that I may worship the LORD your God.'
King James Version

Chapter 15

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.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 15

24 Saul answered Samuel, "I have sinned. I have transgressed the Lord's command and your words. Because I was afraid of the people, I obeyed them. 25 Now therefore, please forgive my sin and return with me so I can worship the Lord."
26 Samuel replied to Saul, "I will not return with you. Because you rejected the word of the Lord, the Lord has rejected you from being king over Israel." 27 When Samuel turned to go, Saul grabbed the corner of his robe, and it tore. 28 Samuel said to him, "The Lord has torn the kingship of Israel away from you today and has given it to your neighbor who is better than you. 29 Furthermore, the Eternal One of Israel does not lie or change his mind, for he is not man who changes his mind."
30 Saul said, "I have sinned. Please honor me now before the elders of my people and before Israel. Come back with me so I can bow in worship to the Lord your God."
New Living Translation

Chapter 15

24 Then Saul admitted to Samuel, 'Yes, I have sinned. I have disobeyed your instructions and the LORD's command, for I was afraid of the people and did what they demanded. 25 But now, please forgive my sin and come back with me so that I may worship the LORD.'
26 But Samuel replied, 'I will not go back with you! Since you have rejected the LORD's command, he has rejected you as king of Israel.'
27 As Samuel turned to go, Saul tried to hold him back and tore the hem of his robe. 28 And Samuel said to him, 'The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you today and has given it to someone else--one who is better than you. 29 And he who is the Glory of Israel will not lie, nor will he change his mind, for he is not human that he should change his mind!'
30 Then Saul pleaded again, 'I know I have sinned. But please, at least honor me before the elders of my people and before Israel by coming back with me so that I may worship the LORD your God.'
English Standard Version

Chapter 15

24 Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice. 25 Now therefore, please pardon my sin and return with me that I may bow before the LORD.” 26 And Samuel said to Saul, “I will not return with you. For you have rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD has rejected you from being king over Israel.” 27 As Samuel turned to go away, Saul seized the skirt of his robe, and it tore. 28 And Samuel said to him, “The LORD 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 And also the Glory of Israel will not lie or have regret, for he is not a man, that he should have regret.” 30 Then he said, “I have sinned; yet honor me now before the elders of my people and before Israel, and return with me, that I may bow before the LORD your God.”
New International Version

Chapter 15

24 Then Saul said to Samuel, 'I have sinned. I violated the LORD's command and your instructions. I was afraid of the men and so I gave in to them. 25 Now I beg you, forgive my sin and come back with me, so that I may worship the LORD.'
26 But Samuel said to him, 'I will not go back with you. You have rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD has rejected you as king over Israel!'
27 As Samuel turned to leave, Saul caught hold of the hem of his robe, and it tore. 28 Samuel said to him, 'The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you today and has given it to one of your neighbors--to one better than you. 29 He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a human being, that he should change his mind.'
30 Saul replied, 'I have sinned. But please honor me before the elders of my people and before Israel; come back with me, so that I may worship the LORD your God.'

Chapter 15

24 Entonces Saúl dijo a Samuel: He pecado ; en verdad he quebrantado el mandamiento del SEÑOR y tus palabras, porque temí al pueblo y escuché su voz. 25 Ahora pues, te ruego que perdones mi pecado y vuelvas conmigo para que adore al SEÑOR. 26 Pero Samuel respondió a Saúl: No volveré contigo; porque has desechado la palabra del SEÑOR, y el SEÑOR te ha desechado para que no seas rey sobre Israel. 27 Cuando Samuel se volvía para irse, Saúl asió el borde de su manto, y éste se rasgó. 28 Entonces Samuel le dijo: Hoy el SEÑOR ha arrancado de ti el reino de Israel, y lo ha dado a un prójimo tuyo que es mejor que tú. 29 También la Gloria de Israel no mentirá ni cambiará su propósito, porque El no es hombre para que cambie de propósito. 30 Y Saúl dijo: He pecado, pero te ruego que me honres ahora delante de los ancianos de mi pueblo y delante de Israel y que regreses conmigo para que yo adore al SEÑOR tu Dios.

Chapter 15

24 ?¡He pecado! —admitió Saúl—. He quebrantado el mandato del SEÑOR y tus instrucciones. Los soldados me intimidaron y les hice caso. 25 Pero te ruego que perdones mi pecado, y que regreses conmigo para adorar al SEÑOR.
26 ?No voy a regresar contigo —le respondió Samuel—. Tú has rechazado la palabra del SEÑOR, y él te ha rechazado como rey de Israel.
27 Cuando Samuel se dio vuelta para irse, Saúl le agarró el borde del manto, y se lo arrancó.
28 Entonces Samuel le dijo: ?Hoy mismo el SEÑOR ha arrancado de tus manos el reino de Israel, y se lo ha entregado a otro más digno que tú. 29 En verdad, el que es la Gloria de Israel no miente ni cambia de parecer, pues no es hombre para que se arrepienta.
30 ?¡He pecado! —respondió Saúl—. Pero te pido que por ahora me sigas reconociendo ante los ancianos de mi pueblo y ante todo Israel. Regresa conmigo para adorar al SEÑOR tu Dios.

Chapter 15

24 Entonces Saúl dijo a Samuel: Yo he pecado; pues he quebrantado el mandamiento de Jehová y tus palabras, porque temí al pueblo y consentí a la voz de ellos. Perdona, pues, ahora mi pecado, 25 y vuelve conmigo para que adore a Jehová. 26 Y Samuel respondió a Saúl: No volveré contigo; porque desechaste la palabra de Jehová, y Jehová te ha desechado para que no seas rey sobre Israel. 27 Y volviéndose Samuel para irse, él se asió de la punta de su manto, y éste se rasgó. 28 Entonces Samuel le dijo: Jehová ha rasgado hoy de ti el reino de Israel, y lo ha dado a un prójimo tuyo mejor que tú. 29 Además, el que es la Gloria de Israel no mentirá, ni se arrepentirá, porque no es hombre para que se arrepienta. 30 Y él dijo: Yo he pecado; pero te ruego que me honres delante de los ancianos de mi pueblo y delante de Israel, y vuelvas conmigo para que adore a Jehová tu Dios.

Chapter 15

24 Entonces Saúl dijo a Samuel: Yo he pecado; que he quebrantado el dicho del SEÑOR y tus palabras, porque temí al pueblo, consentí a la voz de ellos. Perdona, pues, ahora mi pecado, 25 Y vuelve conmigo para que adore al SEÑOR. 26 Y Samuel respondió a Saúl: No volveré contigo; porque desechaste la palabra del SEÑOR, y el SEÑOR te ha desechado para que no seas rey sobre Israel. 27 Y volviéndose Samuel para irse, él echó mano del canto de su capa, y se desgarró. 28 Entonces Samuel le dijo: el SEÑOR ha desgarrado hoy de ti el reino de Israel, y lo ha dado a tu prójimo mejor que tú. 29 Y también el Vencedor de Israel no mentirá, ni se arrepentirá acerca de esto; porque no es hombre para que deba arrepentirse. 30 Y él dijo: Yo he pecado; mas te ruego que me honres delante de los ancianos de mi pueblo, y delante de Israel; y vuelve conmigo para que adore al SEÑOR tu Dios.
