1 Samuel 14:32-38

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 14

32 So the people loudly rushed upon the spoils, and took sheep, oxen, and calves, and slaughtered them on the ground; and the people ate them with the blood. 33 Then observers informed Saul, saying, 'Look, the people are sinning against the LORD by eating meat with the blood.' And he said, 'You have acted treacherously; roll a large rock to me today.' 34 Then Saul said, 'Disperse yourselves among the people and say to them, ‘Each one of you bring me his ox or his sheep, and slaughter it here and eat; and do not sin against the LORD by eating it with the blood.’?' So all the people brought them that night, each one his ox with him, and they slaughtered them there. 35 And Saul built an altar to the LORD; it was the first altar that he built to the LORD.
36 Then Saul said, 'Let’s go down after the Philistines by night and take plunder among them until the morning light, and let’s not leave a man among them alive.' And they said, 'Do whatever seems good to you.' So the priest said, 'Let’s approach God here.' 37 So Saul inquired of God: 'Shall I go down after the Philistines? Will You hand them over to Israel?' But He did not answer him on that day. 38 Then Saul said, 'Come here, all you leaders of the people, and investigate and see how this sin has happened today.
King James Version

Chapter 14

32 And the people flew upon the spoil, and took sheep, and oxen, and calves, and slew them on the ground: and the people did eat them with the blood. 33 Then they told Saul, saying, Behold, the people sin against the LORD, in that they eat with the blood. And he said, Ye have transgressed: roll a great stone unto me this day. 34 And Saul said, Disperse yourselves among the people, and say unto them, Bring me hither every man his ox, and every man his sheep, and slay them here, and eat; and sin not against the LORD in eating with the blood. And all the people brought every man his ox with him that night, and slew them there. 35 And Saul built an altar unto the LORD: the same was the first altar that he built unto the LORD.
36 And Saul said, Let us go down after the Philistines by night, and spoil them until the morning light, and let us not leave a man of them. And they said, Do whatsoever seemeth good unto thee. Then said the priest, Let us draw near hither unto God. 37 And Saul asked counsel of God, Shall I go down after the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into the hand of Israel? But he answered him not that day. 38 And Saul said, Draw ye near hither, all the chief of the people: and know and see wherein this sin hath been this day.

32 they rushed to the plunder, took sheep, goats, cattle, and calves, slaughtered them on the ground, and ate meat with the blood still in it.
33 Some reported to Saul, "Look, the troops are sinning against the Lord by eating meat with the blood still in it."Saul said, "You have been unfaithful. Roll a large stone over here at once." 34 He then said, "Go among the troops and say to them, 'Let each man bring me his ox or his sheep. Do the slaughtering here and then you can eat. Don't sin against the Lord by eating meat with the blood in it.' " So every one of the troops brought his ox that night and slaughtered it there. 35 Then Saul built an altar to the Lord; it was the first time he had built an altar to the Lord.
36 Saul said, "Let's go down after the Philistines tonight and plunder them until morning. Don't let even one remain! ""Do whatever you want," the troops replied.But the priest said, "Let's approach God here."
37 So Saul inquired of God, "Should I go after the Philistines? Will you hand them over to Israel? " But God did not answer him that day.
38 Saul said, "All you leaders of the troops, come here. Let's investigate how this sin has occurred today.
New Living Translation

Chapter 14

32 That evening they rushed for the battle plunder and butchered the sheep, goats, cattle, and calves, but they ate them without draining the blood.
33 Someone reported to Saul, 'Look, the men are sinning against the LORD by eating meat that still has blood in it.' 'That is very wrong,' Saul said. 'Find a large stone and roll it over here.
34 Then go out among the troops and tell them, 'Bring the cattle, sheep, and goats here to me. Kill them here, and drain the blood before you eat them. Do not sin against the LORD by eating meat with the blood still in it.'' So that night all the troops brought their animals and slaughtered them there. 35 Then Saul built an altar to the LORD; it was the first of the altars he built to the LORD.
36 Then Saul said, 'Let's chase the Philistines all night and plunder them until sunrise. Let's destroy every last one of them.' His men replied, 'We'll do whatever you think is best.' But the priest said, 'Let's ask God first.'
37 So Saul asked God, 'Should we go after the Philistines? Will you help us defeat them?' But God made no reply that day.
38 Then Saul said to the leaders, 'Something's wrong! I want all my army commanders to come here. We must find out what sin was committed today.

33 Then someone said to Saul, 'Look, the men are sinning against the LORD by eating meat that has blood in it.' 'You have broken faith,' he said. 'Roll a large stone over here at once.'
34 Then he said, 'Go out among the men and tell them, 'Each of you bring me your cattle and sheep, and slaughter them here and eat them. Do not sin against the LORD by eating meat with blood still in it.'' So everyone brought his ox that night and slaughtered it there. 35 Then Saul built an altar to the LORD; it was the first time he had done this.
36 Saul said, 'Let us go down and pursue the Philistines by night and plunder them till dawn, and let us not leave one of them alive.' 'Do whatever seems best to you,' they replied. But the priest said, 'Let us inquire of God here.'
37 So Saul asked God, 'Shall I go down and pursue the Philistines? Will you give them into Israel's hand?' But God did not answer him that day.
38 Saul therefore said, 'Come here, all you who are leaders of the army, and let us find out what sin has been committed today.

Chapter 14

32 Entonces el pueblo se lanzó sobre el despojo, y tomó ovejas, bueyes y becerros y los mataron en el suelo; y el pueblo los comió con la sangre. 33 Y avisaron a Saúl, diciéndole: He aquí, el pueblo está pecando contra el SEÑOR, comiendo carne con la sangre. Y él dijo: Habéis obrado pérfidamente. Traedme hoy una piedra grande. 34 Y Saúl añadió: Dispersaos entre el pueblo, y decidles: “Tráigame cada uno de vosotros su buey o su oveja; matadlos aquí y comed, pero no pequéis contra el SEÑOR comiendo carne con sangre.” Y aquella noche todo el pueblo trajo cada cual su buey consigo, y los mataron allí. 35 Y edificó Saúl un altar al SEÑOR ; este fue el primer altar que él edificó al SEÑOR.
36 Entonces Saúl dijo: Descendamos contra los filisteos de noche, tomemos despojo de entre ellos hasta el amanecer, y no dejemos ni uno de ellos. Y ellos dijeron: Haz lo que te parezca bien. Entonces el sacerdote dijo: Acerquémonos a Dios aquí. 37 Y consultó Saúl a Dios : ¿Descenderé contra los filisteos? ¿Los entregarás en manos de Israel? Pero El no le contestó en aquel día. 38 Y Saúl dijo: Acercaos aquí todos vosotros, jefes del pueblo, y averiguad y ved cómo este pecado ha acontecido hoy.

Tráiganme una piedra grande inmediatamente.”
34 Y Saúl añadió: “Dispérsense entre el pueblo, y díganles: ‘Tráigame cada uno de ustedes su buey o su oveja; mátenlos aquí y coman, pero no pequen contra el SEÑOR comiendo carne con sangre.’” Y aquella noche todo el pueblo trajo cada cual su buey consigo, y los mataron allí. 35 Y edificó Saúl un altar al SEÑOR; éste fue el primer altar que él edificó al SEÑOR.

Chapter 14

32 echaron mano del botín. Agarraron ovejas, vacas y terneros, los degollaron sobre el suelo, y se comieron la carne con todo y sangre.
33 Entonces le contaron a Saúl: ?Los soldados están pecando contra el SEÑOR, pues están comiendo carne junto con la sangre. ?¡Son unos traidores! —replicó Saúl—. Hagan rodar una piedra grande, y tráiganmela ahora mismo.
34 También les dijo: ?Vayan y díganle a la gente que cada uno me traiga su toro o su oveja para degollarlos y comerlos aquí; y que no coman ya carne junto con la sangre, para que no pequen contra el SEÑOR. Esa misma noche cada uno llevó su toro, y lo degollaron allí. 35 Luego Saúl construyó un altar al SEÑOR. Este fue el primer altar que levantó.
36 Y dijo: ?Vayamos esta noche tras los filisteos. Antes de que amanezca, quitémosles todo lo que tienen y no dejemos a nadie con vida. ?Haz lo que te parezca mejor —le respondieron. ?Primero debemos consultar a Dios —intervino el sacerdote.
37 Saúl entonces le preguntó a Dios: «¿Debo perseguir a los filisteos? ¿Los entregarás en manos de Israel?» Pero Dios no le respondió aquel día.
38 Así que Saúl dijo: ?Todos ustedes, jefes del ejército, acérquense y averigüen cuál es el pecado que se ha cometido hoy.

32 Y se lanzó el pueblo sobre el botín, y tomaron ovejas y vacas y becerros, y los degollaron en el suelo; y el pueblo los comió con sangre. 33 Y le dieron aviso a Saúl, diciendo: El pueblo peca contra Jehová, comiendo la carne con la sangre. Y él dijo: Vosotros habéis prevaricado; rodadme ahora acá una piedra grande. 34 Además dijo Saúl: Esparcíos por el pueblo, y decidles que me traigan cada uno su vaca, y cada cual su oveja, y degolladlas aquí, y comed; y no pequéis contra Jehová comiendo la carne con la sangre. Y trajo todo el pueblo cada cual por su mano su vaca aquella noche, y las degollaron allí. 35 Y edificó Saúl altar a Jehová; este altar fue el primero que edificó a Jehová.
36 Y dijo Saúl: Descendamos de noche contra los filisteos, y los saquearemos hasta la mañana, y no dejaremos de ellos ninguno. Y ellos dijeron: Haz lo que bien te pareciere. Dijo luego el sacerdote: Acerquémonos aquí a Dios. 37 Y Saúl consultó a Dios: ¿Descenderé tras los filisteos? ¿Los entregarás en mano de Israel?
