March 9, 1 Samuel 14:31-35
Another reason why Saul should have allowed his people to stop for something to eat. The distance they fought was between 10 and 12 miles. They fought all day and certainly they're famished, anything looks good right now. In this state of extreme hunger they don't take time to drain the blood before cooking the meat. It's quite possible that they were eating very rare meat. Totally against the Hebrew law. But then Saul decides to erect an altar to sacrifice an offering for the people's sin. This too is wrong, Saul did not have authority to offer a sacrifice for the people, that office belongs only to a priest. Again we see that Saul is not willing to give up control.
