1 Samuel 11:2-4 New English Translation (NET Bible)

But Nahash the Ammonite said to them, “The only way I will make a treaty with you is if you let me gouge out the right eye of every one of you and in so doing humiliate all Israel!”

The elders of Jabesh said to him, “Leave us alone for seven days so that we can send messengers throughout the territory of Israel. If there is no one who can deliver us, we will come out voluntarily to you.”

When the messengers went to Gibeah (where Saul lived)[a] and informed the people of these matters, all the people wept loudly.[b]
