1 Samuel 8:1-6 (King James Version)

View In My Bible
1 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old , that he made his sons judges over Israel. 2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba. 3 And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment. 4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together , and came to Samuel unto Ramah, 5 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old , and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. 6 But the thing displeaseda Samuel, when they said , Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
