Then Saul said, “Draw near here, all you “cornerstones” of the people, and know and see what sin was committed this day. Bible other translations

“all you “cornerstones” of the people.” The leaders were the “cornerstones” of Israel, guiding and supporting it (cp. Judges 20:2). Jesus Christ, however, is the chief cornerstone.

“what sin has happened this day.” Saul did not know what sin had been committed.
