Bible: 1 Samuel 15:1-3

Saul Is Rejected as King

15:1 Then Samuel said to Saul, “I was the one the Lord sent to anoint you as king over his people Israel. Now listen to what the Lord says. 1  15:2 Here is what the Lord of hosts says: ‘I carefully observed how the Amalekites opposed 2  Israel along the way when Israel 3  came up from Egypt. 15:3 So go now and strike down the Amalekites. Destroy everything that they have. Don’t spare 4  them. Put them to death – man, woman, child, infant, ox, sheep, camel, and donkey alike.’
