1 Samuel 8:3, 6-9
1 Samuel 8:3 NIV
But his sons did not follow his ways. They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice.
1 Samuel 8:6-9 NIV
But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the LORD. And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.”
