1 Samuel 13:4-5

Context
13:4 All Israel heard this message, 1  “Saul has attacked the Philistine outpost, and now Israel is repulsive 2  to the Philistines!” So the people were summoned to join 3  Saul at Gilgal.

13:5 For the battle with Israel the Philistines had amassed 3,000 4  chariots, 6,000 horsemen, and an army as numerous as the sand on the seashore. They went up and camped at Micmash, east of Beth Aven.

1 tn The words “this message” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

2 tn Heb “stinks.” The figurative language indicates that Israel had become repulsive to the Philistines.

3 tn Heb “were summoned after.”

4 tn Many English versions (e.g., KJV, NASB, NRSV, TEV) read “30,000” here.
