1 Samuel 16:7

“But the Lord said vnto Samuel, Looke not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature, because I haue refused him: for the Lord seeth not, as man seeth; For man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

King James Version (KJV)

1 Samuel 16:7

4. And Samuel did that which the Lord spake, and came to Bethlehem: and the elders of the towne trembled at his comming, and said, Commest thou peaceably? 5. And hee said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice vnto the Lord: sanctifie your selues, and come with me to the sacrifice: and he sanctified Iesse, and his sonnes, and called them to the sacrifice. 6. ¶ And it came to passe when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lords anointed is before him. 7. But the Lord said vnto Samuel, Looke not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature, because I haue refused him: for the Lord seeth not, as man seeth; For man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. 8. Then Iesse called Abinadab, and made him passe before Samuel: and he said, Neither hath the Lord chosen this. 9. Then Iesse made Shammah to passe by: and he said, Neither hath the Lord chosen this. 10. Againe Iesse made seuen of his sonnes to passe before Samuel; and Samuel said vnto Iesse, The Lord hath not chosen these.
