When God Gave a King

Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, “Nay; but we will have a king over us that we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.”
And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD.  And the LORD said to Samuel, “Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king.” And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, “Go ye every man unto his city.” 1 Samuel 8:19-22
