1 Samuel 16:6-11

1 Samuel 16:6-11 NIVUK

When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab and thought, ‘Surely the LORD’s anointed stands here before the LORD.’ But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.’ Then Jesse called Abinadab and made him pass in front of Samuel. But Samuel said, ‘The LORD has not chosen this one either.’ Jesse then made Shammah pass by, but Samuel said, ‘Nor has the LORD chosen this one.’ Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, ‘The LORD has not chosen these.’ So he asked Jesse, ‘Are these all the sons you have?’ ‘There is still the youngest,’ Jesse answered. ‘He is tending the sheep.’ Samuel said, ‘Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.’
