12:1 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] unto all Israel [H3478] , Behold, I have hearkened [H8085] unto your voice [H6963] in all that ye said [H559] unto me, and have made [H4427] a king [H4428] over you.

12:2 And now, behold, the king [H4428] walketh [H1980] before [H6440] you: and I am old [H2204] and grayheaded [H7867] ; and, behold, my sons [H1121] [are] with you: and I have walked [H1980] before [H6440] you from my childhood [H5271] unto this day [H3117] .

12:3 Behold, here I [am]: witness [H6030] against me before the LORD [H3068] , and before his anointed [H4899] : whose ox [H7794] have I taken [H3947] ? or whose ass [H2543] have I taken [H3947] ? or whom have I defrauded [H6231] ? whom have I oppressed [H7533] ? or of whose hand [H3027] have I received [any] bribe [H3724] to blind [H5956] mine eyes [H5869] therewith? and I will restore [H7725] it you.(bribe: Heb. ransom)(to blind: or, that I should hide mine eyes at him)

12:4 And they said [H559] , Thou hast not defrauded [H6231] us, nor oppressed [H7533] us, neither hast thou taken [H3947] ought [H3972] of any man's [H376] hand [H3027] .

12:5 And he said [H559] unto them, The LORD [H3068] [is] witness [H5707] against you, and his anointed [H4899] [is] witness [H5707] this day [H3117] , that ye have not found [H4672] ought [H3972] in my hand [H3027] . And they answered [H559] , [He is] witness [H5707] .

12:6 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] unto the people [H5971] , [It is] the LORD [H3068] that advanced [H6213] Moses [H4872] and Aaron [H175] , and that brought [H5927] your fathers [H1] up [H5927] out of the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] .(advanced: or, made)

12:7 Now therefore stand still [H3320] , that I may reason [H8199] with you before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] of all the righteous acts [H6666] of the LORD [H3068] , which he did [H6213] to you and to your fathers [H1] .(righteous: Heb. righteousnesses, or, benefits)(to: Heb. with)

12:8 When Jacob [H3290] was come [H935] into Egypt [H4714] , and your fathers [H1] cried [H2199] unto the LORD [H3068] , then the LORD [H3068] sent [H7971] Moses [H4872] and Aaron [H175] , which brought forth [H3318] your fathers [H1] out of Egypt [H4714] , and made them dwell [H3427] in this place [H4725] .

12:9 And when they forgat [H7911] the LORD [H3068] their God [H430] , he sold [H4376] them into the hand [H3027] of Sisera [H5516] , captain [H8269] of the host [H6635] of Hazor [H2674] , and into the hand [H3027] of the Philistines [H6430] , and into the hand [H3027] of the king [H4428] of Moab [H4124] , and they fought [H3898] against them.

12:10 And they cried [H2199] unto the LORD [H3068] , and said [H559] , We have sinned [H2398] , because we have forsaken [H5800] the LORD [H3068] , and have served [H5647] Baalim [H1168] and Ashtaroth [H6252] : but now deliver [H5337] us out of the hand [H3027] of our enemies [H341] , and we will serve [H5647] thee.

12:11 And the LORD [H3068] sent [H7971] Jerubbaal [H3378] , and Bedan [H917] , and Jephthah [H3316] , and Samuel [H8050] , and delivered [H5337] you out of the hand [H3027] of your enemies [H341] on every side [H5439] , and ye dwelled [H3427] safe [H983] .

12:12 And when ye saw [H7200] that Nahash [H5176] the king [H4428] of the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] came [H935] against you, ye said [H559] unto me, Nay; but a king [H4428] shall reign [H4427] over us: when the LORD [H3068] your God [H430] [was] your king [H4428] .

12:13 Now therefore behold the king [H4428] whom ye have chosen [H977] , [and] whom ye have desired [H7592] ! and, behold, the LORD [H3068] hath set [H5414] a king [H4428] over you.

12:14 If ye will fear [H3372] the LORD [H3068] , and serve [H5647] him, and obey [H8085] his voice [H6963] , and not rebel [H4784] against the commandment [H6310] of the LORD [H3068] , then shall both ye and also the king [H4428] that reigneth [H4427] over you continue following [H310] the LORD [H3068] your God [H430] :(commandment: Heb. mouth)(continue: Heb. be after)

12:15 But if ye will not obey [H8085] the voice [H6963] of the LORD [H3068] , but rebel [H4784] against the commandment [H6310] of the LORD [H3068] , then shall the hand [H3027] of the LORD [H3068] be against you, as [it was] against your fathers [H1] .

12:16 Now therefore [H1571] stand [H3320] and see [H7200] this great [H1419] thing [H1697] , which the LORD [H3068] will do [H6213] before your eyes [H5869] .

12:17 [Is it] not wheat [H2406] harvest [H7105] to day [H3117] ? I will call [H7121] unto the LORD [H3068] , and he shall send [H5414] thunder [H6963] and rain [H4306] ; that ye may perceive [H3045] and see [H7200] that your wickedness [H7451] [is] great [H7227] , which ye have done [H6213] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] , in asking [H7592] you a king [H4428] .

12:18 So Samuel [H8050] called [H7121] unto the LORD [H3068] ; and the LORD [H3068] sent [H5414] thunder [H6963] and rain [H4306] that day [H3117] : and all the people [H5971] greatly [H3966] feared [H3372] the LORD [H3068] and Samuel [H8050] .

12:19 And all the people [H5971] said [H559] unto Samuel [H8050] , Pray [H6419] for thy servants [H5650] unto the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] , that we die [H4191] not: for we have added [H3254] unto all our sins [H2403] [this] evil [H7451] , to ask [H7592] us a king [H4428] .

12:20 And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] unto the people [H5971] , Fear [H3372] not: ye have done [H6213] all this wickedness [H7451] : yet turn not aside [H5493] from following [H310] the LORD [H3068] , but serve [H5647] the LORD [H3068] with all your heart [H3824] ;

12:21 And turn ye not aside [H5493] : for [then should ye go] after [H310] vain [H8414] [things], which cannot profit [H3276] nor deliver [H5337] ; for they [are] vain [H8414] .

12:22 For the LORD [H3068] will not forsake [H5203] his people [H5971] for his great [H1419] name's [H8034] sake: because it hath pleased [H2974] the LORD [H3068] to make [H6213] you his people [H5971] .

12:23 Moreover as for me [H595] , God forbid [H2486] that I should sin [H2398] against the LORD [H3068] in ceasing [H2308] to pray [H6419] for you: but I will teach [H3384] you the good [H2896] and the right [H3477] way [H1870] :(in: Heb. from)

12:24 Only fear [H3372] the LORD [H3068] , and serve [H5647] him in truth [H571] with all your heart [H3824] : for consider [H7200] how great [things] he hath done [H1431] for you.(how: or, what a great thing)

12:25 But if ye shall still [H7489] do wickedly [H7489] , ye shall be consumed [H5595] , both ye and your king [H4428] .
