And Jonathan struck the garrison of the Philistines that was in Geba, and the Philistines heard about it. And Saul blew the shofar throughout all the land, saying, “Let the Hebrews hear!” Bible

“shofar.” The ram’s horn trumpet, not the metal trumpet.

“throughout all the land.” It is most likely that Saul sent messengers throughout Israel with the news of what had happened.

“Let the Hebrews hear!” The name “Hebrews” was more the name for the loose tribes of Israel before they became a nation, so it is an enigma that Saul is using it here.
