1 Samuel 11:2-4 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
2 Nahash the Ammonite responded, “I’ll make a treaty with you on this one condition: I’ll poke out everyone’s right eye and bring disgrace on all Israel.”
3 The leaders of Jabesh told him, “Give us seven days so that we can send messengers throughout the territory of Israel. And if there’s no one to save us, we’ll surrender to you.”
4 The messengers came to Saul’s town, Gibeah. When they told the people the news, the people cried loudly.
