1 H8050 And Samuel H559 [H8799] said H3478 to all Israel, H8085 [H8804] Behold, I have hearkened H6963 to your voice H559 [H8804] in all that ye said H4427 [H8686] to me, and have made H4428 a king over you.
2 H4428 And now, behold, the king H1980 [H8693] walketh H6440 before H2204 [H8804] you: and I am old H7867 [H8804] and grayheaded; H1121 and, behold, my sons H1980 [H8694] are with you: and I have walked H6440 before H5271 you from my childhood H3117 to this day.
3 H6030 [H8798] Behold, here I am: witness H3068 against me before the LORD, H4899 and before his anointed: H7794 whose ox H3947 [H8804] have I taken? H2543 or whose donkey H3947 [H8804] have I taken? H6231 [H8804] or whom have I defrauded? H7533 [H8804] whom have I oppressed? H3027 or from whose hand H3724 have I received any bribe H5956 [H8686] to blind H5869 my eyes H7725 [H8686] with it? and I will restore it you.
4 H559 [H8799] And they said, H6231 [H8804] Thou hast not defrauded H7533 [H8804] us, nor oppressed H3947 [H8804] us, neither hast thou taken H3972 any thing H376 from any man's H3027 hand.
5 H559 [H8799] And he said H3068 to them, The LORD H5707 is witness H4899 against you, and his anointed H5707 is witness H3117 this day, H4672 [H8804] that ye have not found H3972 any thing H3027 in my hand. H559 [H8799] And they answered, H5707 He is witness.
6 H8050 And Samuel H559 [H8799] said H5971 to the people, H3068 It is the LORD H6213 [H8804] that advanced H4872 Moses H175 and Aaron, H5927 and that brought H1 [H8689] your fathers H776 out of the land H4714 of Egypt.
7 H3320 [H8690] Now therefore stand still, H8199 [H8735] that I may reason H6440 with you before H3068 the LORD H6666 of all the righteous acts H3068 of the LORD, H6213 [H8804] which he did H1 to you and to your fathers.
8 H3290 When Jacob H935 [H8804] had come H4714 into Egypt, H1 and your fathers H2199 [H8799] cried H3068 to the LORD, H3068 then the LORD H7971 [H8799] sent H4872 Moses H175 and Aaron, H3318 [H8686] who brought forth H1 your fathers H4714 from Egypt, H3427 [H8686] and made them dwell H4725 in this place.
9 H7911 [H8799] And when they forgot H3068 the LORD H430 their God, H4376 [H8799] he sold H3027 them into the hand H5516 of Sisera, H8269 captain H6635 of the host H2674 of Hazor, H3027 and into the hand H6430 of the Philistines, H3027 and into the hand H4428 of the king H4124 of Moab, H3898 [H8735] and they fought against them.
10 H2199 [H8799] And they cried H3068 to the LORD, H559 [H8799] and said, H2398 [H8804] We have sinned, H5800 [H8804] because we have forsaken H3068 the LORD, H5647 [H8799] and have served H1168 Baalim H6252 and Ashtaroth: H5337 [H8685] but now deliver H3027 us from the hand H341 [H8802] of our enemies, H5647 [H8799] and we will serve thee.
11 H3068 And the LORD H7971 [H8799] sent H3378 Jerubbaal, H917 and Bedan, H3316 and Jephthah, H8050 and Samuel, H5337 [H8686] and delivered H3027 you from the hand H341 [H8802] of your enemies H5439 on every side, H3427 [H8799] and ye dwelt H983 safe.
12 H7200 [H8799] And when ye saw H5176 that Nahash H4428 the king H1121 of the children H5983 of Ammon H935 [H8804] came H559 [H8799] against you, ye said H4428 to me, Nay; but a king H4427 [H8799] shall reign H3068 over us: when the LORD H430 your God H4428 was your king.
13 H4428 Now therefore behold the king H977 [H8804] whom ye have chosen, H7592 [H8804] and whom ye have desired! H3068 and, behold, the LORD H5414 [H8804] hath set H4428 a king over you.
14 H3372 [H8799] If ye will fear H3068 the LORD, H5647 [H8804] and serve H8085 [H8804] him, and obey H6963 his voice, H4784 [H8686] and not rebel H6310 against the commandment H3068 of the LORD, H4428 then shall both ye and also the king H4427 [H8804] that reigneth H310 over you continue following H3068 the LORD H430 your God:
15 H8085 [H8799] But if ye will not obey H6963 the voice H3068 of the LORD, H4784 [H8804] but rebel H6310 against the commandment H3068 of the LORD, H3027 then shall the hand H3068 of the LORD H1 be against you, as it was against your fathers.
16 H1571 Now therefore H3320 [H8690] stand H7200 [H8798] and see H1419 this great H1697 thing, H3068 which the LORD H6213 [H8802] will do H5869 before your eyes.
17 H2406 Is it not wheat H7105 harvest H3117 to day? H7121 [H8799] I will call H3068 to the LORD, H5414 [H8799] and he shall send H6963 thunder H4306 and rain; H3045 [H8798] that ye may perceive H7200 [H8798] and see H7451 that your wickedness H7227 is great, H6213 [H8804] which ye have done H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD, H7592 [H8800] in asking H4428 you a king.
18 H8050 So Samuel H7121 [H8799] called H3068 to the LORD; H3068 and the LORD H5414 [H8799] sent H6963 thunder H4306 and rain H3117 that day: H5971 and all the people H3966 greatly H3372 [H8799] feared H3068 the LORD H8050 and Samuel.
19 H5971 And all the people H559 [H8799] said H8050 to Samuel, H6419 [H8690] Pray H5650 for thy servants H3068 to the LORD H430 thy God, H4191 [H8799] that we die H3254 [H8804] not: for we have added H2403 to all our sins H7451 this evil, H7592 [H8800] to ask H4428 us a king.
20 H8050 And Samuel H559 [H8799] said H5971 to the people, H3372 [H8799] Fear H6213 [H8804] not: ye have done H7451 all this wickedness: H5493 [H8799] yet turn not aside H310 from following H3068 the LORD, H5647 [H8804] but serve H3068 the LORD H3824 with all your heart;
21 H5493 [H8799] And turn ye not aside: H310 for then should ye go after H8414 vain H3276 [H8686] things, which cannot profit H5337 [H8686] nor deliver; H8414 for they are vain.
22 H3068 For the LORD H5203 [H8799] will not forsake H5971 his people H1419 for his great H8034 name's H2974 [H8689] sake: because it hath pleased H3068 the LORD H6213 [H8800] to make H5971 you his people.
23 H595 Moreover as for me, H2486 Far be it from me H2398 [H8800] that I should sin H3068 against the LORD H2308 [H8800] in ceasing H6419 [H8692] to pray H3384 [H8689] for you: but I will teach H2896 you the good H3477 and the right H1870 way:
24 H3372 [H8798] Only fear H3068 the LORD, H5647 [H8804] and serve H571 him in truth H3824 with all your heart: H7200 [H8798] for consider H1431 [H8689] what great things he hath done for you.
