Bible: 1 Sam 8:6-9

8:6 But this request displeased Samuel, for 1  they said, “Give us a king to lead us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 8:7 The Lord said to Samuel, “Do everything the people request of you. 2  For it is not you that they have rejected, but it is me that they have rejected as their king. 8:8 Just as they have done 3  from the day that I brought them up from Egypt until this very day, they have rejected me and have served other gods. This is what they are also doing to you. 8:9 So now do as they say. 4  But seriously warn 5  them and make them aware of the policies of the king who will rule over them.” 6
