Bible: 1 Samuel 12:12-15

12:12When you saw that King Nahash of the Ammonites was advancing against you, you said to me, ‘No! A king will rule over us’ – even though the Lord your God is your king! 12:13 Now look! Here is the king you have chosen – the one that you asked for! Look, the Lord has given you a king! 12:14 If you fear the Lord, serving him and obeying him 1  and not rebelling against what he says, 2  and if both you and the king who rules over you follow the Lord your God, all will be well. 3  12:15 But if you don’t obey 4  the Lord and rebel against what the Lord says, the hand of the Lord will be against both you and your king. 5
