1 Samuel 8:6-9 New International Version

6  But when they said, "Give us a king to lead us," this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7  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. 8  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. 9  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."
