1 Samuel Chapter 11
7 And he took a yoke of oxen, and hewed them in pieces, and sent them throughout all the coasts of Israel by the hands of messengers, saying, Whosoever 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.
9 And they said unto the messengers that came, Thus shall ye say unto the men of Jabeshgilead, 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.
11 And it was so on the morrow, that Saul put the people in three companies; and they came into the midst of the host in the 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.
15 And all the people went to Gilgal; and there they made Saul king before the LORD in Gilgal; and there they sacrificed sacrifices of peace offerings before the LORD; and there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly.

So much goes through our minds as we read this chapter! Samuel knew why God sent him to make Saul the king of Israel; because the People had rejected God as their King, and they envied the heathen nations around them. But the LORD gave them allowance anyway, so long as their king would be the man of God to lead them to victory over their enemies. Oh what could have been if Saul had been that man!

Verse 13: Saul could have taken revenge against those who insulted him, but he was a humble king here who was grateful for the salvation of Jehovah God.
