1 Samuel 8

10 So Samuel spoke all the words of the LORD to the people who had asked of him a king.

11 He said, 'This will be the procedure of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and place them for himself in his chariots and among his horsemen and they will run before his chariots.

12 'He will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and of fifties, and some to do his plowing and to reap his harvest and to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots.

13 'He will also take your daughters for perfumers and cooks and bakers.

14 'He will take the best of your fields and your vineyards and your olive groves and give them to his servants.

15 'He will take a tenth of your seed and of your vineyards and give to his officers and to his servants.

16 'He will also take your male servants and your female servants and your best young men and your donkeys and use them for his work.

17 'He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his servants.

18 'Then you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.'

19 Nevertheless, the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel, and they said, 'No, but there shall be a king over us,

20 that we also may be like all the nations, that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.'




The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
