Comest thou peaceably?
SA1 16:5 And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD:
sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he
sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
SA1 16:6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on
Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD's anointed is before him.
SA1 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or
on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD
seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but
the LORD looketh on the heart.
SA1 16:8 Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel.
