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.

Michelle Ann; This was a glorious moment in the story of Saul, and speaks also of the Day when Jesus shall be once and for all reconciled to His flesh and blood Brethren the House of Israel, and will not put anyone to death for their past sins and stubbornness and unbelief; for it will be a Day of Reconciliation and Salvation! Wonderful things to think about!

VERSE 13: The elders have a better experience than the younger men. Fortunetunately, advises from the elders are profitable, and help us to avoid to listen to our own understanding. Because of the elders' aid the men of Jabesh, and the covenant was unfulfilled with Ammonite.
