Then Saul was told, “Look, the people are sinning against the Lord by eating [the meat] with the blood.” And he said, “You have violated [the Law] and acted treacherously; roll a large stone to me today.”
Someone told Saul, “Look! The army is disobeying the Lord by eating meat before the blood drains out.” “You’re right,” Saul answered. “They are being unfaithful to the Lord! Hurry! Roll a big rock over here.
Someone said to Saul, “Look! The men are sinning against the Lord. ·They’re eating meat without draining the blood from it […by eating with the blood; Gen. 9:4; Deut. 12:23]!” Saul said, “You ·have sinned [acted treacherously; broken faith]! Roll a large stone over here now!”
Saul was told, “Do something! The soldiers are sinning against God. They’re eating meat with the blood still in it!” Saul said, “You’re biting the hand that feeds you! Roll a big rock over here—now!” He continued, “Disperse among the troops and tell them, ‘Bring your oxen and sheep to me and butcher them properly here. Then you can feast to your heart’s content. Please don’t sin against God by eating meat with the blood still in it.’” And so they did. That night each soldier, one after another, led his animal there to be butchered.
Then someone said to Saul, “Look! The men are sinning against the Lord. They’re eating meat that still has blood in it.” Saul said to them, “You have broken your promise. Roll a large stone over here at once.”
This was reported to Saul. Soldier: Look, our soldiers are sinning against the Eternal One by eating the meat together with the blood of those animals!Saul: You should not have done this. Roll a large stone before me here so I can prepare an altar.
And they told to Saul, and said, that the people eating with blood had sinned to the Lord. And Saul said, Ye have trespassed; wallow ye anon to me a great stone. (And they told Saul, and said, The people have sinned against the Lord, eating the flesh with the blood! And Saul said, Ye have all trespassed; roll ye a great stone over to me at once.)
