Set it before you and eat, for it has been kept for you until the appointed time, about which I said, "I've invited the people.'" So Saul ate with Samuel that day. 25 When they had come down from the high place into town, Samuel spoke to Saul on the roof. 26 They got up early in the morning, and about daybreak Samuel called to Saul on the roof, "Get up and I'll send you off."
