8:1 And it came to pass, when Samuel [H8050] was old [H2204] , that he made [H7760] his sons [H1121] judges [H8199] over Israel [H3478] .

8:2 Now the name [H8034] of his firstborn [H1121] [H1060] was Joel [H3100] ; and the name [H8034] of his second [H4932] , Abiah [H29] : [they were] judges [H8199] in Beersheba [H884] .

8:3 And his sons [H1121] walked [H1980] not in his ways [H1870] , but turned aside [H5186] after [H310] lucre [H1215] , and took [H3947] bribes [H7810] , and perverted [H5186] judgment [H4941] .

8:4 Then all the elders [H2205] of Israel [H3478] gathered themselves together [H6908] , and came [H935] to Samuel [H8050] unto Ramah [H7414] ,

8:5 And said [H559] unto him, Behold, thou art old [H2204] , and thy sons [H1121] walk [H1980] not in thy ways [H1870] : now make [H7760] us a king [H4428] to judge [H8199] us like all the nations [H1471] .

8:6 But the thing [H1697] displeased [H3415] [H5869] Samuel [H8050] , when they said [H559] , Give [H5414] us a king [H4428] to judge [H8199] us. And Samuel [H8050] prayed [H6419] unto the LORD [H3068] .(displeased: Heb. was evil in the eyes of)

8:7 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto Samuel [H8050] , Hearken [H8085] unto the voice [H6963] of the people [H5971] in all that they say [H559] unto thee: for they have not rejected [H3988] thee, but they have rejected [H3988] me, that I should not reign [H4427] over them.

8:8 According to all the works [H4639] which they have done [H6213] since the day [H3117] that I brought them up [H5927] out of Egypt [H4714] even unto this day [H3117] , wherewith they have forsaken [H5800] me, and served [H5647] other [H312] gods [H430] , so do [H6213] they also unto thee.

8:9 Now therefore hearken [H8085] unto their voice [H6963] : howbeit [H389] yet protest [H5749] solemnly [H5749] unto them, and shew [H5046] them the manner [H4941] of the king [H4428] that shall reign [H4427] over them.(hearken: or, obey)(howbeit: or, notwithstanding when thou hast solemnly protested against them then thou shalt)

8:10 And Samuel [H8050] told [H559] all the words [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] unto the people [H5971] that asked [H7592] of him a king [H4428] .

8:11 And he said [H559] , This will be the manner [H4941] of the king [H4428] that shall reign [H4427] over you: He will take [H3947] your sons [H1121] , and appoint [H7760] [them] for himself, for his chariots [H4818] , and [to be] his horsemen [H6571] ; and [some] shall run [H7323] before [H6440] his chariots [H4818] .

8:12 And he will appoint [H7760] him captains [H8269] over thousands [H505] , and captains [H8269] over fifties [H2572] ; and [will set them] to ear [H2790] his ground [H2758] , and to reap [H7114] his harvest [H7105] , and to make [H6213] his instruments [H3627] of war [H4421] , and instruments [H3627] of his chariots [H7393] .

8:13 And he will take [H3947] your daughters [H1323] [to be] confectionaries [H7548] , and [to be] cooks [H2879] , and [to be] bakers [H644] .

8:14 And he will take [H3947] your fields [H7704] , and your vineyards [H3754] , and your oliveyards [H2132] , [even] the best [H2896] [of them], and give [H5414] [them] to his servants [H5650] .

8:15 And he will take the tenth [H6237] of your seed [H2233] , and of your vineyards [H3754] , and give [H5414] to his officers [H5631] , and to his servants [H5650] .(officers: Heb. eunuchs)

8:16 And he will take [H3947] your menservants [H5650] , and your maidservants [H8198] , and your goodliest [H2896] young men [H970] , and your asses [H2543] , and put [H6213] [them] to his work [H4399] .

8:17 He will take the tenth [H6237] of your sheep [H6629] : and ye shall be his servants [H5650] .

8:18 And ye shall cry out [H2199] in that day [H3117] because [H6440] of your king [H4428] which ye shall have chosen [H977] you; and the LORD [H3068] will not hear [H6030] you in that day [H3117] .

8:19 Nevertheless the people [H5971] refused [H3985] to obey [H8085] the voice [H6963] of Samuel [H8050] ; and they said [H559] , Nay; but we will have a king [H4428] over us;

8:20 That we also may be like all the nations [H1471] ; and that our king [H4428] may judge [H8199] us, and go out [H3318] before [H6440] us, and fight [H3898] our battles [H4421] .

8:21 And Samuel [H8050] heard [H8085] all the words [H1697] of the people [H5971] , and he rehearsed [H1696] them in the ears [H241] of the LORD [H3068] .

8:22 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] to Samuel [H8050] , Hearken [H8085] unto their voice [H6963] , and make [H4427] them a king [H4428] . And Samuel [H8050] said [H559] unto the men [H582] of Israel [H3478] , Go [H3212] ye every man [H376] unto his city [H5892] .
