1 Samuel 8:7; 1 Samuel 8:9; 1 Samuel 8:22 (Common English Bible)
The LORD answered Samuel, "Comply with the people's request—everything they ask of you—because they haven't rejected you. No, they've rejected me as king over them.
So comply with their request, but give them a clear warning, telling them how the king will rule over them and operate."
Then the LORD said to Samuel, "Comply with their request. Give them a king." Samuel then told the Israelite people, "Go back, each of you, to your own hometown."
