Poole's Outline of 1 Samuel 11: Saul's First Military Expedition


Nahash besiegeth them of Jabesh-gilead; offereth them a reproachful condition; they have seven days granted them to consult and seek relief; they send messengers to Saul, 1-5. He is provoked; sends messengers to all the Israelites to come in to their help; they come to the number of three hundred and thirty thousand men, 6-8. He sends word to the besieged, who deceive Nahash; who with his army is slain, 9-11. The people are ready to slay Saul’s enemies; in which he opposeth them: he is invested in the kingdom at Gilgal, 12-15.
