1 Samuel 12
12:1 ¶ And Samuel said unto all Israel, Lo! I have hearkened unto your voice, in all that ye said to me,and have set over you a king.
12:2 Now, therefore, lo! the king going to and fro before you, But, I, am old and grey-headed, and, my sons, lo! they are with you,But, I, have gone to and fro before you from my youth until this day.
12:3 Behold me! testify against me, before Yahweh, and before his AnointedWhose, ox, have I taken? or whose, ass, have I taken? or whom have I oppressed? Whom have I crushed? or at whose, hands, have I taken a bribe, to cover up mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it unto you.
12:4 And they said, Thou hast not oppressed us, neither hast thou crushed us,neither hast thou taken, at the hand of any man, any thing.
12:8 How that, when Jacob had come into Egypt,and your fathers had made outcry unto Yahweh, then Yahweh sent Moses and Aaron, and they brought forth your fathers out of Egypt, and he caused them to dwell in this place;
12:9 And, when they forgat Yahweh their God, he sold them into the hand of Sisera, prince of the host of Jabin, king of Hazor, and into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the king of Moab, and they fought against them;
12:10 But, when they made outcry unto Yahweh and saidWe have sinned, in that we have forsaken Yahweh, and have served the Baals and the Ashtoreths,now, therefore, deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, that we may serve thee,
12:14 If ye will revere Yahweh, and serve him, and hearken unto his voice, and not rebel against the bidding of Yahweh, then shall, both ye and your king that reigneth over you, continue to follow after Yahweh your God.
12:17 Is it not wheat harvest, today? I will cry unto Yahweh, that he may give forth thunderings and rain,know ye then and see, that, your wrong, is great which ye have done in the sight of Yahweh, in asking for yourselves, a king.
12:21 and turn not aside after vanities, that can neither profit nor deliver, because, vanities, they are.
12:25 But, if ye, will do wrong, both ye and your king shall be swept away.
