They pounced on the plunder1 and, taking sheep, cattle and calves, they butchered them on the ground and ate them, together with the blood.233
Then someone said to Saul, "Look, the men are sinning against the LORD by eating meat that has blood3 in it." "You have broken faith," he said. "Roll a large stone over here at once."
Then he said, "Go out among the men and tell them, 'Each of you bring me your cattle and sheep, and slaughter them here and eat them. Do not sin against the LORD by eating meat with blood still4 in it.' " So everyone brought his ox that night and slaughtered it there.
