1 Samuel 11

NAS 1 Now Nahash the Ammonite came up and besieged Jabesh-gilead ; and all the men of Jabesh said to Nahash, "Make a covenant with us and we will serve you." NIV 1 Nahash the Ammonite went up and besieged Jabesh Gilead. And all the men of Jabesh said to him, “Make a treaty with us, and we will be subject to you.” NAS 2 But Nahash the Ammonite said to them, "I will make it with you on this condition, that I will gouge out the right eye of every one of you, thus I will make it a reproach on all Israel." NIV 2 But Nahash the Ammonite replied, “I will make a treaty with you only on the condition that I gouge out the right eye of every one of you and so bring disgrace on all Israel.” NAS 3 The elders of Jabesh said to him, "Let us alone for seven days, that we may send messengers throughout the territory of Israel. Then, if there is no one to deliver us, we will come out to you." NIV 3 The elders of Jabesh said to him, “Give us seven days so we can send messengers throughout Israel; if no one comes to rescue us, we will surrender to you.” NAS 4 Then the messengers came to Gibeah of Saul and spoke these words in the hearing of the people, and all the people lifted up their voices and wept. NIV 4 When the messengers came to Gibeah of Saul and reported these terms to the people, they all wept aloud. NAS 5 Now behold, Saul was coming from the field behind the oxen, and he said, "What is the matter with the people that they weep?" So they related to him the words of the men of Jabesh. NIV 5 Just then Saul was returning from the fields, behind his oxen, and he asked, “What is wrong with everyone? Why are they weeping?” Then they repeated to him what the men of Jabesh had said. NAS 6 Then the Spirit of God came upon Saul mightily when he heard these words, and he became very angry . NIV 6 When Saul heard their words, the Spirit of God came powerfully upon him, and he burned with anger. NAS 7 He 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. NIV 7 He took a pair of oxen, cut them into pieces, and sent the pieces by messengers throughout Israel, proclaiming, “This is what will be done to the oxen of anyone who does not follow Saul and Samuel.” Then the terror of the LORD fell on the people, and they came out together as one. NAS 8 He numbered them in Bezek; and the sons of Israel were 300,000 , and the men of Judah 30,000 . NIV 8 When Saul mustered them at Bezek, the men of Israel numbered three hundred thousand and those of Judah thirty thousand. NAS 9 They 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. NIV 9 They told the messengers who had come, “Say to the men of Jabesh Gilead, ‘By the time the sun is hot tomorrow, you will be rescued.’ ” When the messengers went and reported this to the men of Jabesh, they were elated. NAS 10 Then the men of Jabesh said, "Tomorrow we will come out to you, and you may do to us whatever seems good to you." NIV 10 They said to the Ammonites, “Tomorrow we will surrender to you, and you can do to us whatever you like.” NAS 11 The 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. NIV 11 The next day Saul separated his men into three divisions; during the last watch of the night they broke into the camp of the Ammonites and slaughtered them until the heat of the day. Those who survived were scattered, so that no two of them were left together. NAS 12 Then 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." NIV 12 The people then said to Samuel, “Who was it that asked, ‘Shall Saul reign over us?’ Turn these men over to us so that we may put them to death.” NAS 13 But Saul said, "Not a man shall be put to death this day, for today the LORD has accomplished deliverance in Israel." NIV 13 But Saul said, “No one will be put to death today, for this day the LORD has rescued Israel.” NAS 14 Then Samuel said to the people, "Come and let us go to Gilgal and renew the kingdom there." NIV 14 Then Samuel said to the people, “Come, let us go to Gilgal and there renew the kingship.” NAS 15 So 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. NIV 15 So all the people went to Gilgal and made Saul king in the presence of the LORD. There they sacrificed fellowship offerings before the LORD, and Saul and all the Israelites held a great celebration.
