1 Samuel 8:5-8

Context
8:5 They said to him, “Look, you are old, and your sons don’t follow your ways. So now appoint over us a king to lead 1  us, just like all the other nations have.”

8:6 But this request displeased Samuel, for 2  they said, “Give us a king to lead us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 8:7 The Lord said to Samuel, “Do everything the people request of you. 3  For it is not you that they have rejected, but it is me that they have rejected as their king. 8:8 Just as they have done 4  from the day that I brought them up from Egypt until this very day, they have rejected me and have served other gods. This is what they are also doing to you.
