1 Samuel 8:5; 1 Samuel 8:19-20
They said to him, "Look, you are old, and your sons do not follow your example. Therefore, appoint a king to judge us the same as all the other nations have."
The people refused to listen to Samuel. "No!" they said. "We must have a king over us.
Then we'll be like all the other nations: our king will judge us, go out before us, and fight our battles."
