    • 1 Samuel 9:7, with translation of the King James Version:
      וַיֹּאמֶר שָׁאוּל לְנַעֲרוֹ וְהִנֵּה נֵלֵךְ וּמַה־נָּבִיא לָאִישׁ כִּי הַלֶּחֶם אָזַל מִכֵּלֵינוּ וּתְשׁוּרָה אֵין־לְהָבִיא לְאִישׁ הָק׳ מָה אִתָּנוּ׃
      Then said Saul to his servant, But, behold, if we go, what shall we bring the man? for the bread is spent in [literally from] our vessels, and there is not a present to bring to the man of G-d: what have we?
