Prophet of Doom
On the encounter of Saul and Samuel in ch. Although incensed, he sides with sinful Israel. And his compassionate rhetoric works. In Numbers 12 Aaron and Miriam slander Moses. Wrath has come out from the LORD; the plague has started.
Moses intercedes for Israel, without, however, being in agreement with them. Indeed, Moses, in Exodus, is very angry with idolatrous Israel. Similarly, in Numbers 16, in a bid to power some Levites rise up against him, which Moses takes as a personal afront Num. He is consistently on the side of the ones threatened 33 B.
He rises above personal ofenses and takes sides even against YHWH if necessary. More importantly, one cannot help having the impression that there are two parties here: Samuel and Israel. Is he amongst penitent Israel purifying themselves and confessing? By the end of ch. He is known as a prophet whose word is fulilled see His worst fears seem to take shape with the emerging monarchy and its representative king.
Both in ch. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of ities, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his oicials and attendants.
Your menservants and maidservants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your locks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day. It is as if kingship only afects sinful Israel but not the prophet. But they forgot the LORD their God; so he sold them into the hand of Sisera, the commander of the army of Hazor, and into the hands of the Philistines and the king of Moab, who fought against them.
But now deliver us from the hands of our enemies, and we will serve you. Now here is the king you have chosen, the one you asked for; see, the LORD has set a king over you.
But if you do not obey the LORD, and if you rebel against his commands, his hand will be against you, as it was against your fathers Studying prophets W.
Still, and despite the fact that Samuel is rarely depicted in situations comparable to the prophets Brueggeman studies, it seems to apply to Samuel and his basic attitude.
We could see Moses and Esra being angry as well as in anguish. Without knowing, however, about what exactly Samuel was troubled and for what he cried out all night, it is diicult to see him in anguish. Even less so if J. In any case, the prophet seems more alerted than anguished ater the public iasco.
Or is it the other way round: Does Samuel make the perpetual impression of being an 41 See also , 21, 30 and the note on above. Brueggemann, he Prophetic Imagination, Philadelphia, Fortress, , p.
Whichever it is, it makes one recognize a conspicuous dissimilarity to Samson. Right at his very irst appearance in ch. Similar observations can be made regarding his relationship to Saul.
Samuel is said to leave the scene ater both occasions of announcing the judgment ; 15,— As opposed to ch. His being set apart and over against Israel makes him a rather strange sort of a prophet never identifying or siding with his people. How much was he suitable to the prophetic mission he was supposed to carry out? A reliable prophet, but a lonely igure at the same time He never sides with Israel.
From his irst announcement in ch. See also p. Since we know precious little from both Samuel and his era which he too admits p.
