1 Samuel 11:6–12

And ithe Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his anger was kindled greatly. And he took a yoke of oxen, and jhewed them in pieces, and sent them throughout all the coasts of Israel by the hands of messengers, saying, kWhosoever cometh not forth after Saul and after Samuel, so shall it be done unto his oxen. And the fear of the Lord fell on the people, and they came out with one consent. And when he numbered them in lBezek, mthe children of Israel were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand. And they said unto the messengers that came, Thus shall ye say unto the men of Jabesh-gilead, To morrow, by that time the sun be hot, ye shall have ||help. And the messengers came and shewed it to the men of Jabesh; and they were glad. 10 Therefore the men of Jabesh said, To morrow nwe will come out unto you, and ye shall do with us all that seemeth good unto you. 11 And it was so on the morrow, that oSaul put the people pin three companies; and they came into the midst of the host in qthe morning watch, and slew the Ammonites until the heat of the day: and it came to pass, that they which remained were scattered, so that two of them were not left together.

12 And the people said unto Samuel, rWho is he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? sbring the men, that we may put them to death.
