“But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:6 Displeased - Because God was hereby dishonoured by that distrust of him, and that ambition, and itch after changes, which were the manifest causes of this desire; and because of that great misery, which he foresaw the people would hereby bring upon themselves. Prayed - For the pardon of their sin, and direction and help from God in this great affair.
