1 Samuel 15:1-3 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

15 3 Saul is commanded to slay Amalek. 9 He spareth Agag, and the best things. 19 Samuel reproveth him. 28 Saul is rejected of the Lord, and his Kingdom given to another. 33 Samuel heweth Agag in pieces.

Afterward Samuel said unto Saul, The Lord sent me to anoint thee King over his people, over Israel: now therefore [a]obey the voice of the words of the Lord.

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember what Amalek did to Israel, how they laid wait for them in the way, as they came up from Egypt.

Now therefore go, and smite Amalek, and destroy ye all that pertaineth unto them, and have no compassion on them, but [b]slay both man and woman, both infant and suckling, both ox, and sheep, both camel, and ass.


  1. 1 Samuel 15:1 Because he hath preferred thee to this honor, thou art bound to obey him.
  2. 1 Samuel 15:3 That this might be an example of God’s vengeance against them that deal cruelly with his people.
