1 Samuel 8:5-20

And said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Behold, thou art old
<02204> (8804)_,
and thy sons
<01121>
walk
<01980> (8804)
not in thy ways
<01870>_:
now make
<07760> (8798)
us a king
<04428>
to judge
<08199> (8800)
us like all the nations
<01471>_.
But the thing
<01697>
displeased
<03415> (8799) <05869>
Samuel
<08050>_,
when they said
<0559> (8804)_,
Give
<05414> (8798)
us a king
<04428>
to judge
<08199> (8800)
us. And Samuel
<08050>
prayed
<06419> (8691)
unto the LORD
<03068>_.
{displeased: Heb. was evil in the eyes of}
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Samuel
<08050>_,
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto the voice
<06963>
of the people
<05971>
in all that they say
<0559> (8799)
unto thee: for they have not rejected
<03988> (8804)
thee, but they have rejected
<03988> (8804)
me, that I should not reign
<04427> (8800)
over them.
According to all the works
<04639>
which they have done
<06213> (8804)
since the day
<03117>
that I brought them up
<05927> (8687)
out of Egypt
<04714>
even unto this day
<03117>_,
wherewith they have forsaken
<05800> (8799)
me, and served
<05647> (8799)
other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_,
so do
<06213> (8802)
they also unto thee.
Now therefore hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto their voice
<06963>_:
howbeit
<0389>
yet protest
<05749> (8686)
solemnly
<05749> (8687)
unto them, and shew
<05046> (8689)
them the manner
<04941>
of the king
<04428>
that shall reign
<04427> (8799)
over them. {hearken...: or, obey} {howbeit...: or, notwithstanding when thou hast solemnly protested against them then thou shalt}
And Samuel
<08050>
told
<0559> (8799)
all the words
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
unto the people
<05971>
that asked
<07592> (8802)
of him a king
<04428>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
This will be the manner
<04941>
of the king
<04428>
that shall reign
<04427> (8799)
over you: He will take
<03947> (8799)
your sons
<01121>_,
and appoint
<07760> (8804)
[them] for himself, for his chariots
<04818>_,
and [to be] his horsemen
<06571>_;
and [some] shall run
<07323> (8804)
before
<06440>
his chariots
<04818>_.
And he will appoint
<07760> (8800)
him captains
<08269>
over thousands
<0505>_,
and captains
<08269>
over fifties
<02572>_;
and [will set them] to ear
<02790> (8800)
his ground
<02758>_,
and to reap
<07114> (8800)
his harvest
<07105>_,
and to make
<06213> (8800)
his instruments
<03627>
of war
<04421>_,
and instruments
<03627>
of his chariots
<07393>_.
And he will take
<03947> (8799)
your daughters
<01323>
[to be] confectionaries
<07548>_,
and [to be] cooks
<02879>_,
and [to be] bakers
<0644> (8802)_.
And he will take
<03947> (8799)
your fields
<07704>_,
and your vineyards
<03754>_,
and your oliveyards
<02132>_,
[even] the best
<02896>
[of them], and give
<05414> (8804)
[them] to his servants
<05650>_.
And he will take the tenth
<06237> (8799)
of your seed
<02233>_,
and of your vineyards
<03754>_,
and give
<05414> (8804)
to his officers
<05631>_,
and to his servants
<05650>_.
{officers: Heb. eunuchs}
And he will take
<03947> (8799)
your menservants
<05650>_,
and your maidservants
<08198>_,
and your goodliest
<02896>
young men
<0970>_,
and your asses
<02543>_,
and put
<06213> (8804)
[them] to his work
<04399>_.
He will take the tenth
<06237> (8799)
of your sheep
<06629>_:
and ye shall be his servants
<05650>_.
And ye shall cry out
<02199> (8804)
in that day
<03117>
because
<06440>
of your king
<04428>
which ye shall have chosen
<0977> (8804)
you; and the LORD
<03068>
will not hear
<06030> (8799)
you in that day
<03117>_.
Nevertheless the people
<05971>
refused
<03985> (8762)
to obey
<08085> (8800)
the voice
<06963>
of Samuel
<08050>_;
and they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Nay; but we will have a king
<04428>
over us;
That we also may be like all the nations
<01471>_;
and that our king
<04428>
may judge
<08199> (8804)
us, and go out
<03318> (8804)
before
<06440>
us, and fight
<03898> (8738)
our battles
<04421>_.
