Samuel promises to meet Saul within seven days at Gilgal
1 Samuel 10:8 NIV
8 “Go down ahead of me to Gilgal. I will surely come down to you to sacrifice burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, but you must wait seven days until I come to you and tell you what you are to do.”
In the meantime Nahash the Ammonite king besieges the men of Jabesh and gives them a seven day ultimatum.The men of Jabesh sends a distress call to Saul who eventually rescues them.This confrontation seems to last several days.(1 Samuel 11)
Again king Saul has another confrontation with the Phillistines and waits for Samuel for seven days before he goes ahead with the sacrifices(1 Samuel 13)
Samuel finally pitches up at Gilgal and confronts Saul who by then had offered the sacrifices.Could the above events have taken place within the prescribed seven days
1 Samuel 13:8 NIV
8 He waited seven days, the time set by Samuel; but Samuel did not come to Gilgal, and Saul’s men began to scatter. 9 So he said, “Bring me the burnt offering and the fellowship offerings.” And Saul offered up the burnt offering. 10 Just as he finished making the offering, Samuel arrived, and Saul went out to greet him.
Did Samuel pitch up within the seven days or there is a chronological issue here?
