Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The next day Saul arranged the people in three divisions (ראשׁים, as in Judges 7:16), who forced their way into the camp of the foe from three different sides, in the morning watch (between three and six o'clock in the morning), smote the Ammonites "till the heat of the day," and routed them so completely, that those who remained were all scattered, and there were not two men left together.
