Context6Then the Spirit of God came upon Saul mightily when he heard these words, and he became very angry. 7He took a yoke of oxen and cut them in pieces, and sent them throughout the territory of Israel by the hand of messengers, saying, Whoever does not come out after Saul and after Samuel, so shall it be done to his oxen. Then the dread of the LORD fell on the people, and they came out as one man. 8He numbered them in Bezek; and the sons of Israel were 300,000, and the men of Judah 30,000. 9They said to the messengers who had come, Thus you shall say to the men of Jabesh-gilead, Tomorrow, by the time the sun is hot, you will have deliverance. So the messengers went and told the men of Jabesh; and they were glad. 10Then the men of Jabesh said, Tomorrow we will come out to you, and you may do to us whatever seems good to you. 11The next morning Saul put the people in three companies; and they came into the midst of the camp at the morning watch and struck down the Ammonites until the heat of the day. Those who survived were scattered, so that no two of them were left together.
12Then the people said to Samuel, Who is he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? Bring the men, that we may put them to death. 13But Saul said, Not a man shall be put to death this day, for today the LORD has accomplished deliverance in Israel.
14Then Samuel said to the people, Come and let us go to Gilgal and renew the kingdom there. 15So all the people went to Gilgal, and there they made Saul king before the LORD in Gilgal. There they also offered sacrifices of peace offerings before the LORD; and there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly.
