Bible: 1 Sam 15:3, 9, 12
15:3 So go now and strike down the Amalekites. Destroy everything that they have. Don’t spare 1 them. Put them to death – man, woman, child, infant, ox, sheep, camel, and donkey alike.’” 15:9 However, Saul and the army spared Agag, along with the best of the flock, the cattle, the fatlings, 2 and the lambs, as well as everything else that was of value. 3 They were not willing to slaughter them. But they did slaughter everything that was despised 4 and worthless.
15:12 Then Samuel got up early to meet Saul the next morning. But Samuel was informed, “Saul has gone to Carmel where 5 he is setting up a monument for himself. Then Samuel left 6 and went down to Gilgal.” 7
