Saul consolidated his rule over Israel and made war on all his enemies on all fronts: on Moab, the Ammonites, Edom, the king of Zobah and the Philistines; whichever way he turned, he was victorious.  He did great deeds of valor; he defeated the Amalekites and delivered Israel from those who used to pillage him.
