13:1 Saul [H7586] reigned [H4427] one year [H1121] [H8141] ; and when he had reigned [H4427] two [H8147] years [H8141] over Israel [H3478] ,(reigned one: Heb. the son of one year in his reigning)

13:2 Saul [H7586] chose [H977] him three [H7969] thousand [H505] [men] of Israel [H3478] ; [whereof] two thousand [H505] were with Saul [H7586] in Michmash [H4363] and in mount [H2022] Bethel [H1008] , and a thousand [H505] were with Jonathan [H3129] in Gibeah [H1390] of Benjamin [H1144] : and the rest [H3499] of the people [H5971] he sent [H7971] every man [H376] to his tent [H168] .

13:3 And Jonathan [H3129] smote [H5221] the garrison [H5333] of the Philistines [H6430] that [was] in Geba [H1387] , and the Philistines [H6430] heard [H8085] [of it]. And Saul [H7586] blew [H8628] the trumpet [H7782] throughout all the land [H776] , saying [H559] , Let the Hebrews [H5680] hear [H8085] .(Geba: or, the hill)

13:4 And all Israel [H3478] heard [H8085] say [H559] [that] Saul [H7586] had smitten [H5221] a garrison [H5333] of the Philistines [H6430] , and [that] Israel [H3478] also was had in abomination [H887] with the Philistines [H6430] . And the people [H5971] were called together [H6817] after [H310] Saul [H7586] to Gilgal [H1537] .(was: Heb. did stink)

13:5 And the Philistines [H6430] gathered themselves together [H622] to fight [H3898] with Israel [H3478] , thirty [H7970] thousand [H505] chariots [H7393] , and six [H8337] thousand [H505] horsemen [H6571] , and people [H5971] as the sand [H2344] which [is] on the sea [H3220] shore [H8193] in multitude [H7230] : and they came up [H5927] , and pitched [H2583] in Michmash [H4363] , eastward [H6926] from Bethaven [H1007] .

13:6 When the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] saw [H7200] that they were in a strait [H6887] , (for the people [H5971] were distressed [H5065] ,) then the people [H5971] did hide [H2244] themselves in caves [H4631] , and in thickets [H2337] , and in rocks [H5553] , and in high places [H6877] , and in pits [H953] .

13:7 And [some of] the Hebrews [H5680] went over [H5674] Jordan [H3383] to the land [H776] of Gad [H1410] and Gilead [H1568] . As for Saul [H7586] , he [was] yet in Gilgal [H1537] , and all the people [H5971] followed [H310] him trembling [H2729] .(followed: Heb. trembled after him)

13:8 And he tarried [H3176] [H3176] seven [H7651] days [H3117] , according to the set time [H4150] that Samuel [H8050] [had appointed]: but Samuel [H8050] came [H935] not to Gilgal [H1537] ; and the people [H5971] were scattered [H6327] from him.

13:9 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , Bring hither [H5066] a burnt offering [H5930] to me, and peace offerings [H8002] . And he offered [H5927] the burnt offering [H5930] .

13:10 And it came to pass, that as soon as he had made an end [H3615] of offering [H5927] the burnt offering [H5930] , behold, Samuel [H8050] came [H935] ; and Saul [H7586] went out [H3318] to meet [H7125] him, that he might salute [H1288] him.(salute: Heb. bless)

13:11 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] , What hast thou done [H6213] ? And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , Because I saw [H7200] that the people [H5971] were scattered [H5310] from me, and [that] thou camest [H935] not within the days [H3117] appointed [H4150] , and [that] the Philistines [H6430] gathered themselves together [H622] at Michmash [H4363] ;

13:12 Therefore said [H559] I, The Philistines [H6430] will come down [H3381] now upon me to Gilgal [H1537] , and I have not made supplication [H2470] unto [H6440] the LORD [H3068] : I forced [H662] myself therefore, and offered [H5927] a burnt offering [H5930] .(made: Heb. intreated the face)

13:13 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] to Saul [H7586] , Thou hast done foolishly [H5528] : thou hast not kept [H8104] the commandment [H4687] of the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] , which he commanded [H6680] thee: for now would the LORD [H3068] have established [H3559] thy kingdom [H4467] upon Israel [H3478] for [H5704] ever [H5769] .

13:14 But now thy kingdom [H4467] shall not continue [H6965] : the LORD [H3068] hath sought [H1245] him a man [H376] after his own heart [H3824] , and the LORD [H3068] hath commanded [H6680] him [to be] captain [H5057] over his people [H5971] , because thou hast not kept [H8104] [that] which the LORD [H3068] commanded [H6680] thee.

13:15 And Samuel [H8050] arose [H6965] , and gat him up [H5927] from Gilgal [H1537] unto Gibeah [H1390] of Benjamin [H1144] . And Saul [H7586] numbered [H6485] the people [H5971] [that were] present [H4672] with him, about six [H8337] hundred [H3967] men [H376] .(present: Heb. found)

13:16 And Saul [H7586] , and Jonathan [H3129] his son [H1121] , and the people [H5971] [that were] present [H4672] with them, abode [H3427] in Gibeah [H1387] of Benjamin [H1144] : but the Philistines [H6430] encamped [H2583] in Michmash [H4363] .(present: Heb. found)(Gibeah: Heb. Geba)

13:17 And the spoilers [H7843] came out [H3318] of the camp [H4264] of the Philistines [H6430] in three [H7969] companies [H7218] : one [H259] company [H7218] turned [H6437] unto the way [H1870] [that leadeth to] Ophrah [H6084] , unto the land [H776] of Shual [H7777] :

13:18 And another [H259] company [H7218] turned [H6437] the way [H1870] [to] Bethhoron [H1032] : and another [H259] company [H7218] turned [H6437] [to] the way [H1870] of the border [H1366] that looketh [H8259] to the valley [H1516] of Zeboim [H6650] toward the wilderness [H4057] .

13:19 Now there was no smith [H2796] found [H4672] throughout all the land [H776] of Israel [H3478] : for the Philistines [H6430] said [H559] , Lest the Hebrews [H5680] make [H6213] [them] swords [H2719] or spears [H2595] :

13:20 But all the Israelites [H3478] went down [H3381] to the Philistines [H6430] , to sharpen [H3913] every man [H376] his share [H4282] , and his coulter [H855] , and his axe [H7134] , and his mattock [H4281] .

13:21 Yet they had a file [H6477] [H6310] for the mattocks [H4281] , and for the coulters [H855] , and for the forks [H7969] [H7053] , and for the axes [H7134] , and to sharpen [H5324] the goads [H1861] .(a file: Heb. a file with mouths)(sharpen: Heb. to set)

13:22 So it came to pass in the day [H3117] of battle [H4421] , that there was neither sword [H2719] nor spear [H2595] found [H4672] in the hand [H3027] of any of the people [H5971] that [were] with Saul [H7586] and Jonathan [H3129] : but with Saul [H7586] and with Jonathan [H3129] his son [H1121] was there found [H4672] .

13:23 And the garrison [H4673] of the Philistines [H6430] went out [H3318] to the passage [H4569] of Michmash [H4363] .(garrison: or, standing camp)
