King James Version (KJV)

1 Samuel 8:20

17. Hee will take the tenth of your sheepe, and ye shall be his seruants. 18. And ye shall cry out in that day, because of your king which ye shall haue chosen you; and the Lord will not heare you in that day. 19. ¶ Neuerthelesse, the people refused to obey the voyce of Samuel; and they said, Nay, but we will haue a King ouer vs: 20. That we also may be like all the nations, and that our King may iudge vs, and goe out before vs, and fight our battels. 21. And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the eares of the Lord. 22. And the Lord said to Samuel, Hearken vnto their voyce, and make them a King. And Samuel said vnto the men of Israel, Goe yee euery man vnto his citie.
