1 Samuel

Chapter 8

  1. 1. And it came to pass, when Samuel
    H8050
    was old,
    H2204
    that he made
    H7760
    his sons
    H1121
    judges
    H8199
    over Israel.
    H3478
  2. 2. Now the name
    H8034
    of his firstborn
    H1060
    was
    H1121
    Joel;
    H3100
    and the name
    H8034
    of his second,
    H4932
    Abiah:
    H29
    they were judges
    H8199
    in Beersheba.
    H884
  3. 3. And his sons
    H1121
    walked
    H1980
    not in his ways,
    H1870
    but turned aside
    H5186
    after
    H310
    lucre,
    H1215
    and took
    H3947
    bribes,
    H7810
    and perverted
    H5186
    judgment.
    H4941
  4. 4. Then all the elders
    H2205
    of Israel
    H3478
    gathered themselves together,
    H6908
    and came
    H935
    to Samuel
    H8050
    unto Ramah,
    H7414
  5. 5. And said
    H559
    unto him, Behold, thou art old,
    H2204
    and thy sons
    H1121
    walk
    H1980
    not in thy ways:
    H1870
    now make
    H7760
    us a king
    H4428
    to judge
    H8199
    us like all the nations.
    H1471
  6. 6. But the thing
    H1697
    displeased
    H3415
    H5869
    Samuel,
    H8050
    when they said,
    H559
    Give
    H5414
    us a king
    H4428
    to judge
    H8199
    us. And Samuel
    H8050
    prayed
    H6419
    unto the LORD.
    H3068
  7. 7. And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto Samuel,
    H8050
    Hearken
    H8085
    unto the voice
    H6963
    of the people
    H5971
    in all that they say
    H559
    unto thee: for they have not rejected
    H3988
    thee, but they have rejected
    H3988
    me, that I should not reign
    H4427
    over them.
  8. 8. According to all the works
    H4639
    which they have done
    H6213
    since the day
    H3117
    that I brought them up
    H5927
    out of Egypt
    H4714
    even unto this day,
    H3117
    wherewith they have forsaken
    H5800
    me, and served
    H5647
    other
    H312
    gods,
    H430
    so do
    H6213
    they also unto thee.
  9. 9. Now therefore hearken
    H8085
    unto their voice:
    H6963
    howbeit
    H389
    yet protest
    H5749
    solemnly
    H5749
    unto them, and shew
    H5046
    them the manner
    H4941
    of the king
    H4428
    that shall reign
    H4427
    over them.
  10. 10. And Samuel
    H8050
    told
    H559
    all the words
    H1697
    of the LORD
    H3068
    unto the people
    H5971
    that asked
    H7592
    of him a king.
    H4428
  11. 11. And he said,
    H559
    This will be the manner
    H4941
    of the king
    H4428
    that shall reign
    H4427
    over you: He will take
    H3947
    your sons,
    H1121
    and appoint
    H7760
    them for himself, for his chariots,
    H4818
    and to be his horsemen;
    H6571
    and some shall run
    H7323
    before
    H6440
    his chariots.
    H4818
  12. 12. And he will appoint
    H7760
    him captains
    H8269
    over thousands,
    H505
    and captains
    H8269
    over fifties;
    H2572
    and will set them to ear
    H2790
    his ground,
    H2758
    and to reap
    H7114
    his harvest,
    H7105
    and to make
    H6213
    his instruments
    H3627
    of war,
    H4421
    and instruments
    H3627
    of his chariots.
    H7393
  13. 13. And he will take
    H3947
    your daughters
    H1323
    to be confectionaries,
    H7548
    and to be cooks,
    H2879
    and to be bakers.
    H644
  14. 14. And he will take
    H3947
    your fields,
    H7704
    and your vineyards,
    H3754
    and your oliveyards,
    H2132
    even the best
    H2896
    of them, and give
    H5414
    them to his servants.
    H5650
  15. 15. And he will take the tenth
    H6237
    of your seed,
    H2233
    and of your vineyards,
    H3754
    and give
    H5414
    to his officers,
    H5631
    and to his servants.
    H5650
  16. 16. And he will take
    H3947
    your menservants,
    H5650
    and your maidservants,
    H8198
    and your goodliest
    H2896
    young men,
    H970
    and your asses,
    H2543
    and put
    H6213
    them to his work.
    H4399
  17. 17. He will take the tenth
    H6237
    of your sheep:
    H6629
    and ye shall be his servants.
    H5650
  18. 18. And ye shall cry out
    H2199
    in that day
    H3117
    because
    H6440
    of your king
    H4428
    which ye shall have chosen
    H977
    you; and the LORD
    H3068
    will not hear
    H6030
    you in that day.
    H3117
  19. 19. Nevertheless the people
    H5971
    refused
    H3985
    to obey
    H8085
    the voice
    H6963
    of Samuel;
    H8050
    and they said,
    H559
    Nay; but we will have a king
    H4428
    over us;
  20. 20. That we also may be like all the nations;
    H1471
    and that our king
    H4428
    may judge
    H8199
    us, and go out
    H3318
    before
    H6440
    us, and fight
    H3898
    our battles.
    H4421
  21. 21. And Samuel
    H8050
    heard
    H8085
    all the words
    H1697
    of the people,
    H5971
    and he rehearsed
    H1696
    them in the ears
    H241
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  22. 22. And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    to Samuel,
    H8050
    Hearken
    H8085
    unto their voice,
    H6963
    and make
    H4427
    them a king.
    H4428
    And Samuel
    H8050
    said
    H559
    unto the men
    H582
    of Israel,
    H3478
    Go
    H3212
    ye every man
    H376
    unto his city.
