Saul said to Samuel, “But I have obeyed the voice of Yahweh, and have gone the way that Yahweh sent me and have brought Agag the king of Amalek and have devoted the Amalekites to destruction. Bible

“devoted...to destruction.” That is, killed them all. [For more on things “devoted” to Yahweh and devoted to destruction, see commentary on Josh. 6:17].
