The text we are looking at today is found in 1 Samuel 16:1-13. It is the story of when Samuel the prophet anoints David to be King of Israel because God has come to regret making Saul king. Now, this event does not make David king. Saul is the most powerful man among the Israelite people and removing him from his post is not a matter of popular vote.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 16:1-13

The Lord said to Samuel, ‘How long will you grieve over Saul? I have rejected him from being king over Israel. Fill your horn with oil and set out; I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite, for I have provided for myself a king among his sons.’ Samuel said, ‘How can I go? If Saul hears of it, he will kill me.’ And the Lord said, ‘Take a heifer with you, and say, “I have come to sacrifice to the Lord.” Invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do; and you shall anoint for me the one whom I name to you.’ Samuel did what the Lord commanded, and came to Bethlehem.
