1 Samuel 14:32
14:32 So the army rushed greedily on 1 the 2 plunder, confiscating sheep, cattle, and calves. They slaughtered them right on the ground, and the army ate them blood and all.
1 Samuel 15:3
15:3 So go now and strike down the Amalekites. Destroy everything that they have. Don’t spare 3 them. Put them to death – man, woman, child, infant, ox, sheep, camel, and donkey alike.’”
1 tc The translation follows the Qere and many medieval Hebrew mss in reading “and they rushed greedily upon,” rather than the Kethib, “and they did.”
2 tc The translation reads with the Qere and many medieval Hebrew mss הַשָּׁלָל (hashalal, “the spoil”) rather than following the Kethib reading, שָׁלָל (shalal, “spoil”).
3 tn Or perhaps “don’t take pity on” (cf. CEV).
