1 Samuel 11:10-12 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)
10 So the men of Jabesh said, “Tomorrow we will come out to you, and you can do with us whatever seems good to you.”
11 On the next day, Saul split the army into three divisions. They broke into the middle of the Ammonite camp during the last watch before morning and struck them down until the heat of the day. Those who survived were so scattered that no two of them were left together.
12 Then the people said to Samuel, “Who was it who said, ‘Shall Saul reign over us?’ Hand those men over to us, so we can put them to death!”
