|1 Samuel 8:1-5 |
1 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he established his sons as judges over Israel.
2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abiah; they were judges in Beersheba.
3 And his sons did not walk in his ways, but turned aside after money, took bribes, and perverted judgment.
4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together and came to Samuel at Ramah,
5 And said to him, "Behold, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways, so now make us a king to judge us like all the nations."
