But it is (A)the spirit in man,
    (B)the breath of the Almighty, that makes him (C)understand.
(D)It is not the old[a] who are wise,

And Saul sent messengers again the third time, (D)and they also prophesied. 22 Then he himself went to Ramah and came to the great well that is in Secu. And he asked, “Where are Samuel and David?” And one said, “Behold, they are at Naioth in (E)Ramah.” 23 And he went there to Naioth in Ramah. (F)And the Spirit of God came upon him also, and as he went he prophesied until he came to Naioth in Ramah. 24 (G)And he too stripped off his clothes, and he too prophesied before Samuel and lay naked all that day and all that night. Thus it is said, (H)“Is Saul also among the prophets?”
