1 Samuel Chapter 11 Summary: Chapter Summaries

1 Samuel chapter 11 summary is going to cover the rescue of a town called Jabesh in Gilead. It was rescued by the newly minted king, king Saul, which gave him the approval rating he needed.

The chapter began with a general named Nahash of the country of Ammon, he came up to fight against the men of Jabesh-Gilead. The men of Jabesh-Gilead wanted to make a peace agreement or treaty.

However, Nahash said it would cost them their right eye; Jabesh-Gilead wanted seven (7) days to consider it. They took the conundrum of a situation back to Saul who told all the tribes of Israel to come out and fight or face consequences (if they didn’t).

With that act, the men of Jabesh-Gilead acquired the help needed; they had three hundred and thirty thousand (330,000) soldiers to fight for them. Saul coordinated it all as the Benjamite king of Israel put his nation in three companies and they destroyed the Ammonites.

Israel was so happy with the leadership of Saul, they wanted to kill the men who said Saul shouldn’t be king in the first place, and that Saul couldn’t deliver them. Saul ordered for no one to die that day in Israel because God had worked salvation in Israel.

Instead, they went to Gilgal to renew the manner of the new kingdom there. They rejoiced their victory and salvation and sacrificed before God. This is the summary of 1 Samuel chapter 11, glory to King of Peace.
