Tað prophetiska orðið er úr I. Sámuels bók 15:22-31, KJB.
22 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.
25 Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord.
26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.
27 And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent.
28 And Samuel said unto him, The Lord hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.
29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.
30 Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord thy God.
31 So Samuel turned again after Saul; and Saul worshipped the Lord.
( I. Samuel 15:22-31 KJB )
But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath
commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee.
( I. Samuel 13:14 KJB )
Líka sum Saul, so kann Jógvan spæla kongur í eini seks ár afturat, men eg trúgvi, at HARRIN hevur longu funnið sær ein
mann eftir sínum egna hjarta.
Latum okkum vóna, at Jógvan vendir um, áðrenn hann verður tøldur heilt út til heksina í En-dor (í hansara føri at skriva undir at víga sodomittar í fólkakirkjuni), – fyri dagin eftir at falla í bardaganum og fara í helviti.
