1 Samuel 8:7; 1 Samuel 8:9; 1 Samuel 8:22
God answered Samuel, "Go ahead and do what they're asking. They are not rejecting you. They've rejected me as their King.
So let them have their own way. But warn them of what they're in for. Tell them the way kings operate, just what they're likely to get from a king."
God told Samuel, "Do what they say. Make them a king." Then Samuel dismissed the men of Israel: "Go home, each of you to your own city."
