SaulH7586 reignedH4427 one year;H8141 and when he had reignedH4427 twoH8147 yearsH8141 overH5921 Israel,H3478
SaulH7586 choseH977 him threeH7969 thousandH505 men of Israel;H3478 whereof two thousandH505 were with SaulH7586 in MichmashH4363 and in mountH2022 Bethel,H1008 and a thousandH505 were with JonathanH3129 in GibeahH1390 of Benjamin:H1144 and the restH3499 of the peopleH5971 he sentH7971 every manH376 to his tent.H168
And JonathanH3129 smoteH5221 the garrisonH5333 of the PhilistinesH6430 that was in Geba,H1387 and the PhilistinesH6430 heardH8085 of it. And SaulH7586 blewH8628 the trumpetH7782 throughout allH3605 the land,H776 saying,H559 Let the HebrewsH5680 hear.H8085
And allH3605 IsraelH3478 heardH8085 sayH559 that SaulH7586 had smittenH5221 a garrisonH5333 of the Philistines,H6430 and that IsraelH3478 alsoH1571 was had in abominationH887 with the Philistines.H6430 And the peopleH5971 were calledH6817 together afterH310 SaulH7586 to Gilgal.H1537
And the PhilistinesH6430 gatheredH622 themselves together to fightH3898 with Israel,H3478 thirtyH7970 thousandH505 chariots,H7393 and sixH8337 thousandH505 horsemen,H6571 and peopleH5971 as the sandH2344 whichH834 is onH5921 the seaH3220 shoreH8193 in multitude:H7230 and they cameH5927 up, and pitchedH2583 in Michmash,H4363 eastwardH6926 from Bethaven.H1007
When the menH376 of IsraelH3478 sawH7200 that they were in a strait,H6887 (for the peopleH5971 were distressed,H5065) then the peopleH5971 did hideH2244 themselves in caves,H4631 and in thickets,H2337 and in rocks,H5553 and in highH6877 places, and in pits.H953
And some of the HebrewsH5680 wentH5674 overH5674 JordanH3383 to the landH776 of GadH1410 and Gilead.H1568 As for Saul,H7586 he was yetH5750 in Gilgal,H1537 and allH3605 the peopleH5971 followedH310 him trembling.H2729
And he tarriedH3176 sevenH7651 days,H3117 according to the setH4150 time that SamuelH8050 had appointed: but SamuelH8050 cameH935 not to Gilgal;H1537 and the peopleH5971 were scatteredH6327 from him.
And SaulH7586 said,H559 BringH5066 hereH5066 a burntH5930 offering to me, and peaceH8002 offerings. And he offeredH5927 the burntH5930 offering.
And it cameH1961 to pass, that as soon as he had made an endH3615 of offeringH5927 the burntH5930 offering, behold,H2009 SamuelH8050 came;H935 and SaulH7586 wentH3318 out to meetH7125 him, that he might saluteH1288 him.
And SamuelH8050 said,H559 WhatH4100 have you done?H6213 And SaulH7586 said,H559 BecauseH3588 I sawH7200 that the peopleH5971 were scatteredH5310 from me, and that you cameH935 not within the daysH3117 appointed,H4150 and that the PhilistinesH6430 gatheredH622 themselves together at Michmash;H4363
Therefore saidH559 I, The PhilistinesH6430 will comeH3381 downH3381 nowH6258 on me to Gilgal,H1537 and I have not made supplicationH2470 to the LORD:H3068 I forcedH662 myself therefore, and offeredH5927 a burntH5930 offering.
And SamuelH8050 saidH559 to Saul,H7586 You have done foolishly:H5528 you have not keptH8104 the commandmentH4687 of the LORDH3068 your God,H430 whichH834 he commandedH6680 you: for nowH6258 would the LORDH3068 have establishedH3559 your kingdomH4467 on IsraelH3478 for ever.H5769
But nowH6258 your kingdomH4467 shall not continue:H6965 the LORDH3068 has soughtH1245 him a manH376 after his own heart,H3824 and the LORDH3068 has commandedH6680 him to be captainH5057 overH5921 his people,H5971 becauseH3588 you have not keptH8104 that whichH834 the LORDH3068 commandedH6680 you.
And SamuelH8050 arose,H6965 and gotH5927 him up from GilgalH1537 to GibeahH1390 of Benjamin.H1144 And SaulH7586 numberedH6485 the peopleH5971 that were presentH4672 with him, about sixH8337 hundredH3967 men.H376
And Saul,H7586 and JonathanH3129 his son,H1121 and the peopleH5971 that were presentH4672 with them, stayedH3427 in GibeahH1390 of Benjamin:H1144 but the PhilistinesH6430 encampedH2583 in Michmash.H4363
And the spoilersH7843 cameH3318 out of the campH4264 of the PhilistinesH6430 in threeH7969 companies:H7218 oneH259 companyH7218 turnedH6437 to the wayH1870 that leads to Ophrah,H6084 to the landH776 of Shual:H7777
And anotherH259 companyH7218 turnedH6437 the wayH1870 to Bethhoron:H1032 and anotherH259 companyH7218 turnedH6437 to the wayH1870 of the borderH1366 that looksH8259 to the valleyH1516 of ZeboimH6650 toward the wilderness.H4057
Now there was noH3808 smithH2796 foundH4672 throughout allH3605 the landH776 of Israel:H3478 for the PhilistinesH6430 said,H559 LestH6435 the HebrewsH5680 makeH6213 them swordsH2719 orH176 spears:H2595
But allH3605 the IsraelitesH3478 wentH3381 downH3381 to the Philistines,H6430 to sharpenH3913 every manH376 his share,H4282 and his coulter,H855 and his ax,H7134 and his mattock.H4281
Yet they had a fileH6477 H6310 for the mattocks,H4281 and for the coulters,H855 and for the forks,H7969 H7053 and for the axes,H7134 and to sharpenH5324 the goads.H1861
So it cameH1961 to pass in the dayH3117 of battle,H4421 that there was neitherH3808 swordH2719 nor spearH2595 foundH4672 in the handH3027 of anyH3605 of the peopleH5971 that were with SaulH7586 and Jonathan:H3129 but with SaulH7586 and with JonathanH3129 his sonH1121 was there found.H4672
And the garrisonH4673 of the PhilistinesH6430 wentH3318 out to the passageH4569 of Michmash.H4363
