1 Samuel 13:3-4Context
13:3 Jonathan attacked the Philistine outpost 2 that was at Geba and the Philistines heard about it. Then Saul alerted 3 all the land saying, “Let the Hebrews pay attention!” 13:4 All Israel heard this message, 4 “Saul has attacked the Philistine outpost, and now Israel is repulsive 5 to the Philistines!” So the people were summoned to join 6 Saul at Gilgal.
1 tn Or “sentries.” Some translate “outpost” (NIV) or “garrison” (NAB, NRSV, NLT) here (see 1 Sam 13:3). The noun is plural in the Hebrew text, but the LXX and other ancient witnesses read a singular noun here.
