1 Samuel 13:8-10

Context
13:8 He waited for seven days, the time period indicated by Samuel. 1  But Samuel did not come to Gilgal, and the army began to abandon Saul. 2 

13:9 So Saul said, “Bring me the burnt offering and the peace offerings.” Then he offered a burnt offering. 13:10 Just when he had finished offering the burnt offering, Samuel appeared on the scene. Saul went out to meet him and to greet him. 3 

1 tn This apparently refers to the instructions given by Samuel in 1 Sam 10:8. If so, several years had passed. On the relationship between chs. 10 and 13, see V. P. Long, The Art of Biblical History (FCI), 201-23.

2 tn Heb “dispersed from upon him”; NAB, NRSV “began to slip away.”

3 tn Heb “to bless him.”
