strkjv@1Samuel:12:1 @ And Samuel said unto all Israel, Behold, I have hearkened unto your voice in all that ye said unto me, and have made a king over you.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:2 @ And now, behold, the king walketh before you: and I am old and grayheaded; and, behold, my sons are with you: and I have walked before you from my childhood unto this day.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:3 @ Behold, here I am: witness against me before the LORD Y@hovah#, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:4 @ And they said, Thou hast not defrauded us, nor oppressed us, neither hast thou taken ought of any mans hand.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:5 @ And he said unto them, The LORD Y@hovah# is witness against you, and his anointed is witness this day, that ye have not found ought in my hand. And they answered, He is witness.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:6 @ And Samuel said unto the people, It is the LORD Y@hovah# that advanced Moses and Aaron, and that brought your fathers up out of the land of Egypt.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:7 @ Now therefore stand still, that I may reason with you before the LORD Y@hovah# of all the righteous acts of the LORD Y@hovah#, which he did to you and to your fathers.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:8 @ When Jacob was come into Egypt, and your fathers cried unto the LORD Y@hovah#, then the LORD Y@hovah# sent Moses and Aaron, which brought forth your fathers out of Egypt, and made them dwell in this place.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:9 @ And when they forgat the LORD Y@hovah# their God, he sold them into the hand of Sisera, captain of the host of Hazor, and into the hand of the Philistines P@lishtiy#, and into the hand of the king of Moab, and they fought against them.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:10 @ And they cried unto the LORD Y@hovah#, and said, We have sinned, because we have forsaken the LORD Y@hovah#, and have served Baalim and Ashtaroth: but now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:11 @ And the LORD Y@hovah# sent Jerubbaal Y@rubba'al#, and Bedan B@dan#, and Jephthah, and Samuel, and delivered you out of the hand of your enemies on every side, and ye dwelled safe.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:12 @ And when ye saw that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon came against you, ye said unto me, Nay; but a king shall reign over us: when the LORD Y@hovah# your God was your king.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:13 @ Now therefore behold the king whom ye have chosen, and whom ye have desired! and, behold, the LORD Y@hovah# hath set a king over you.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:14 @ If ye will fear the LORD Y@hovah#, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD Y@hovah#, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD Y@hovah# your God:
strkjv@1Samuel:12:15 @ But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD Y@hovah#, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD Y@hovah#, then shall the hand of the LORD Y@hovah# be against you, as it was against your fathers.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:16 @ Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD Y@hovah# will do before your eyes.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:17 @ Is it not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto the LORD Y@hovah#, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD Y@hovah#, in asking you a king.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:18 @ So Samuel called unto the LORD Y@hovah#; and the LORD Y@hovah# sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly m@#od# feared the LORD Y@hovah# and Samuel.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:19 @ And all the people said unto Samuel, Pray for thy servants unto the LORD Y@hovah# thy God, that we die not: for we have added unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:20 @ And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done all this wickedness: yet turn not aside from following the LORD Y@hovah#, but serve the LORD Y@hovah# with all your heart;
strkjv@1Samuel:12:21 @ And turn ye not aside: for then should ye go after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver; for they are vain.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:22 @ For the LORD Y@hovah# will not forsake his people for his great names sake: because it hath pleased the LORD Y@hovah# to make you his people.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:23 @ Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD Y@hovah# in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:
strkjv@1Samuel:12:24 @ Only fear the LORD Y@hovah#, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.
strkjv@1Samuel:12:25 @ But if ye shall still do wickedly, ye shall be consumed, both ye and your king.
