And he waited seven days, according to the time set by Samuel, but Samuel did not come to Gilgal and the people were scattering from him. Bible see other translations

“according to the time set by Samuel.” The time was set in 1 Samuel 10:7-8, but Samuel did come on the seventh day (1 Sam. 13:10). Saul was impatient and disobedient, very characteristic of him at this stage in his life.
