These three men will say hello to you. They will offer you two bread offerings reserved for priests,[a] and you will accept that bread. Then you will go to Gibeath Elohim. There is a Philistine fort in that place. When you come to this town, a group of prophets will come out. These prophets will come down from the place for worship.[b] They will be prophesying.[c] They will be playing harps, tambourines, flutes, and lyres. Then the Lord’s Spirit will come on you with great power. You will be changed. You will be like a different man. You will begin to prophesy with these prophets.

  2. 1 Samuel 10:5 place for worship Or “high places,” places for worshiping God or false gods. These places were often on the hills and mountains.
  3. 1 Samuel 10:5 prophesying This usually means “speaking for God.” But here, this also means that the Spirit of God took control of people, causing them to sing and dance. Also in verses 11, 13.
