11:12 And the people [H5971] said [H559] unto Samuel [H8050] , Who [is] he that said [H559] , Shall Saul [H7586] reign [H4427] over us? bring [H5414] the men [H582] , that we may put them to death [H4191] .

11:13 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , There shall not a man [H376] be put to death [H4191] this day [H3117] : for to day [H3117] the LORD [H3068] hath wrought [H6213] salvation [H8668] in Israel [H3478] .

11:14 Then said [H559] Samuel [H8050] to the people [H5971] , Come [H3212] , and let us go [H3212] to Gilgal [H1537] , and renew [H2318] the kingdom [H4410] there.
