Samuel Warning Concerning Kings

10And Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people that asked of him a king. 11And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. 12And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. 13And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. 14And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your olive groves, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. 15And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. 16And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your best young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. 17He will take the tenth of your sheep: and you shall be his servants. 18And you shall cry out in that day because of your king which you shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
