1 Samuel 11

Then Nahash
<05176>
the Ammonite
<05984>
came up
<05927> (8799)_,
and encamped
<02583> (8799)
against Jabeshgilead
<03003> <01568>_:
and all the men
<0582>
of Jabesh
<03003>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Nahash
<05176>_,
Make
<03772> (8798)
a covenant
<01285>
with us, and we will serve
<05647> (8799)
thee.
And Nahash
<05176>
the Ammonite
<05984>
answered
<0559> (8799)
them, On this
<02063>
[condition] will I make
<03772> (8799)
[a covenant] with you, that I may thrust out
<05365> (8800)
all your right
<03225>
eyes
<05869>_,
and lay
<07760> (8804)
it [for] a reproach
<02781>
upon all Israel
<03478>_.
And the elders
<02205>
of Jabesh
<03003>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Give us seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_'
respite
<07503> (8685)_,
that we may send
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>
unto all the coasts
<01366>
of Israel
<03478>_:
and then, if [there be] no man to save
<03467> (8688)
us, we will come out
<03318> (8804)
to thee. {Give...: Heb. Forbear us}
Then came
<0935> (8799)
the messengers
<04397>
to Gibeah
<01390>
of Saul
<07586>_,
and told
<01696> (8762)
the tidings
<01697>
in the ears
<0241>
of the people
<05971>_:
and all the people
<05971>
lifted up
<05375> (8799)
their voices
<06963>_,
and wept
<01058> (8799)_.
And, behold, Saul
<07586>
came
<0935> (8804)
after
<0310>
the herd
<01241>
out of the field
<07704>_;
and Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
What [aileth] the people
<05971>
that they weep
<01058> (8799)_?
And they told
<05608> (8762)
him the tidings
<01697>
of the men
<0582>
of Jabesh
<03003>_.
And the Spirit
<07307>
of God
<0430>
came
<06743> (8799)
upon Saul
<07586>
when he heard
<08085> (8800)
those tidings
<01697>_,
and his anger
<0639>
was kindled
<02734> (8799)
greatly
<03966>_.
And he took
<03947> (8799)
a yoke
<06776>
of oxen
<01241>_,
and hewed them in pieces
<05408> (8762)_,
and sent
<07971> (8762)
[them] throughout all the coasts
<01366>
of Israel
<03478>
by the hands
<03027>
of messengers
<04397>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Whosoever cometh not forth
<03318> (8802)
after
<0310>
Saul
<07586>
and after
<0310>
Samuel
<08050>_,
so shall it be done
<06213> (8735)
unto his oxen
<01241>_.
And the fear
<06343>
of the LORD
<03068>
fell
<05307> (8799)
on the people
<05971>_,
and they came out
<03318> (8799)
with one
<0259>
consent
<0376>_.
{with...: Heb. as one man}
And when he numbered
<06485> (8799)
them in Bezek
<0966>_,
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
were three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>_,
and the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
thirty
<07970>
thousand
<0505>_.
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto the messengers
<04397>
that came
<0935> (8802)_,
Thus shall ye say
<0559> (8799)
unto the men
<0376>
of Jabeshgilead
<03003> <01568>_,
To morrow
<04279>_,
by [that time] the sun
<08121>
be hot
<02527>_,
ye shall have help
<08668>_.
And the messengers
<04397>
came
<0935> (8799)
and shewed
<05046> (8686)
[it] to the men
<0582>
of Jabesh
<03003>_;
and they were glad
<08055> (8799)_.
{help: or, deliverance}
Therefore the men
<0582>
of Jabesh
<03003>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
To morrow
<04279>
we will come out
<03318> (8799)
unto you, and ye shall do
<06213> (8804)
with us all that seemeth
<05869>
good
<02896>
unto you.
And it was [so] on the morrow
<04283>_,
that Saul
<07586>
put
<07760> (8799)
the people
<05971>
in three
<07969>
companies
<07218>_;
and they came
<0935> (8799)
into the midst
<08432>
of the host
<04264>
in the morning
<01242>
watch
<0821>_,
and slew
<05221> (8686)
the Ammonites
<05983>
until the heat
<02527>
of the day
<03117>_:
and it came to pass, that they which remained
<07604> (8737)
were scattered
<06327> (8799)_,
so that two
<08147>
of them were not left
<07604> (8738)
together
<03162>_.
And the people
<05971>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Samuel
<08050>_,
Who [is] he that said
<0559> (8802)_,
Shall Saul
<07586>
reign
<04427> (8799)
over us? bring
<05414> (8798)
the men
<0582>_,
that we may put them to death
<04191> (8686)_.
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
There shall not a man
<0376>
be put to death
<04191> (8714)
this day
<03117>_:
for to day
<03117>
the LORD
<03068>
hath wrought
<06213> (8804)
salvation
<08668>
in Israel
<03478>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Samuel
<08050>
to the people
<05971>_,
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
and let us go
<03212> (8799)
to Gilgal
<01537>_,
and renew
<02318> (8762)
the kingdom
<04410>
there.
And all the people
<05971>
went
<03212> (8799)
to Gilgal
<01537>_;
and there they made Saul
<07586>
king
<04427> (8686)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>
in Gilgal
<01537>_;
and there they sacrificed
<02076> (8799)
sacrifices
<02077>
of peace offerings
<08002>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_;
and there Saul
<07586>
and all the men
<0582>
of Israel
<03478>
rejoiced
<08055> (8799)
greatly
<03966>_.
