1 Samuel 12:1-15

And Samuel
<08050>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto all Israel
<03478>_,
Behold, I have hearkened
<08085> (8804)
unto your voice
<06963>
in all that ye said
<0559> (8804)
unto me, and have made
<04427> (8686)
a king
<04428>
over you.
And now, behold, the king
<04428>
walketh
<01980> (8693)
before
<06440>
you: and I am old
<02204> (8804)
and grayheaded
<07867> (8804)_;
and, behold, my sons
<01121>
[are] with you: and I have walked
<01980> (8694)
before
<06440>
you from my childhood
<05271>
unto this day
<03117>_.
Behold, here I [am]: witness
<06030> (8798)
against me before the LORD
<03068>_,
and before his anointed
<04899>_:
whose ox
<07794>
have I taken
<03947> (8804)_?
or whose ass
<02543>
have I taken
<03947> (8804)_?
or whom have I defrauded
<06231> (8804)_?
whom have I oppressed
<07533> (8804)_?
or of whose hand
<03027>
have I received [any] bribe
<03724>
to blind
<05956> (8686)
mine eyes
<05869>
therewith? and I will restore
<07725> (8686)
it you. {bribe: Heb. ransom} {to blind...: or, that I should hide mine eyes at him}
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thou hast not defrauded
<06231> (8804)
us, nor oppressed
<07533> (8804)
us, neither hast thou taken
<03947> (8804)
ought
<03972>
of any man's
<0376>
hand
<03027>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, The LORD
<03068>
[is] witness
<05707>
against you, and his anointed
<04899>
[is] witness
<05707>
this day
<03117>_,
that ye have not found
<04672> (8804)
ought
<03972>
in my hand
<03027>_.
And they answered
<0559> (8799)_,
[He is] witness
<05707>_.
And Samuel
<08050>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the people
<05971>_,
[It is] the LORD
<03068>
that advanced
<06213> (8804)
Moses
<04872>
and Aaron
<0175>_,
and that brought
<05927> (0)
your fathers
<01>
up
<05927> (8689)
out of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
{advanced: or, made}
Now therefore stand still
<03320> (8690)_,
that I may reason
<08199> (8735)
with you before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>
of all the righteous acts
<06666>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which he did
<06213> (8804)
to you and to your fathers
<01>_.
{righteous...: Heb. righteousnesses, or, benefits} {to: Heb. with}
When Jacob
<03290>
was come
<0935> (8804)
into Egypt
<04714>_,
and your fathers
<01>
cried
<02199> (8799)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
then the LORD
<03068>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Moses
<04872>
and Aaron
<0175>_,
which brought forth
<03318> (8686)
your fathers
<01>
out of Egypt
<04714>_,
and made them dwell
<03427> (8686)
in this place
<04725>_.
And when they forgat
<07911> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_,
he sold
<04376> (8799)
them into the hand
<03027>
of Sisera
<05516>_,
captain
<08269>
of the host
<06635>
of Hazor
<02674>_,
and into the hand
<03027>
of the Philistines
<06430>_,
and into the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>
of Moab
<04124>_,
and they fought
<03898> (8735)
against them.
And they cried
<02199> (8799)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
We have sinned
<02398> (8804)_,
because we have forsaken
<05800> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and have served
<05647> (8799)
Baalim
<01168>
and Ashtaroth
<06252>_:
but now deliver
<05337> (8685)
us out of the hand
<03027>
of our enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and we will serve
<05647> (8799)
thee.
And the LORD
<03068>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Jerubbaal
<03378>_,
and Bedan
<0917>_,
and Jephthah
<03316>_,
and Samuel
<08050>_,
and delivered
<05337> (8686)
you out of the hand
<03027>
of your enemies
<0341> (8802)
on every side
<05439>_,
and ye dwelled
<03427> (8799)
safe
<0983>_.
And when ye saw
<07200> (8799)
that Nahash
<05176>
the king
<04428>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
came
<0935> (8804)
against you, ye said
<0559> (8799)
unto me, Nay; but a king
<04428>
shall reign
<04427> (8799)
over us: when the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
[was] your king
<04428>_.
Now therefore behold the king
<04428>
whom ye have chosen
<0977> (8804)_,
[and] whom ye have desired
<07592> (8804)_!
and, behold, the LORD
<03068>
hath set
<05414> (8804)
a king
<04428>
over you.
If ye will fear
<03372> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and serve
<05647> (8804)
him, and obey
<08085> (8804)
his voice
<06963>_,
and not rebel
<04784> (8686)
against the commandment
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
then shall both ye and also the king
<04428>
that reigneth
<04427> (8804)
over you continue following
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_:
{commandment: Heb. mouth} {continue...: Heb. be after}
But if ye will not obey
<08085> (8799)
the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
but rebel
<04784> (8804)
against the commandment
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
then shall the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>
be against you, as [it was] against your fathers
<01>_.
