1 Samuel 16:1-721st Century King James Version (KJ21)
16 And the Lord said unto Samuel, “How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill thine horn with oil, and go. I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite, for I have provided Me a king among his sons.”
2 And Samuel said, “How can I go? If Saul hear it, he will kill me.” And the Lord said, “Take a heifer with thee, and say, ‘I have come to sacrifice to the Lord.’
3 And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show thee what thou shalt do; and thou shalt anoint unto Me him whom I name unto thee.”
4 And Samuel did that which the Lord spoke, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said, “Comest thou peaceably?”
5 And he said, “Peaceably; I have come to sacrifice unto the Lord. Sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice.” And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
6 And it came to pass, when they had come, that he looked on Eliab and said, “Surely the Lord’S anointed is before Him.”
7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, “Look not on his countenance or on the height of his stature, because I have refused him; for the Lord seeth not as man seeth. For man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”
