1 When Samuel became old, he made his sons judges over Israel. SAUL - Israel demands a king. 1Sm.8.1-22וַיְהִי כַּאֲשֶׁר זָקֵן שְׁמוּאֵל וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־בָּנָיו שֹׁפְטִים לְיִשְׂרָאֵל׃
2 The name of his first-born son was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beer-sheba.  וַיְהִי שֶׁם־בְּנֹו הַבְּכֹור יֹואֵל וְשֵׁם מִשְׁנֵהוּ אֲבִיָּה שֹׁפְטִים בִּבְאֵר שָׁבַע׃
3 Yet his sons did not walk in his ways, but turned aside after gain; they took bribes and perverted justice.  וְלֹא־הָלְכוּ בָנָיו {כ= בְּדַרְכֹו} {ק= בִּדְרָכָיו} וַיִּטּוּ אַחֲרֵי הַבָּצַע וַיִּקְחוּ־שֹׁחַד וַיַּטּוּ מִשְׁפָּט׃ ף
4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah,  וַיִּתְקַבְּצוּ כֹּל זִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיָּבֹאוּ אֶל־שְׁמוּאֵל הָרָמָתָה׃
5 and said to him, "Behold, you are old and your sons do not walk in your ways; now appoint for us a king to govern us like all the nations."  וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֵלָיו הִנֵּה אַתָּה זָקַנְתָּ וּבָנֶיךָ לֹא הָלְכוּ בִּדְרָכֶיךָ עַתָּה שִׂימָה־לָּנוּ מֶלֶךְ לְשָׁפְטֵנוּ כְּכָל־הַגֹּויִם׃
6 But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, "Give us a king to govern us." And Samuel prayed to Yahweh.  וַיֵּרַע הַדָּבָר בְּעֵינֵי שְׁמוּאֵל כַּאֲשֶׁר אָמְרוּ תְּנָה־לָּנוּ מֶלֶךְ לְשָׁפְטֵנוּ וַיִּתְפַּלֵּל שְׁמוּאֵל אֶל־יְהוָה׃ ף
7 And Yahweh said to Samuel, "Hearken to the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them.  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל־שְׁמוּאֵל שְׁמַע בְּקֹול הָעָם לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר־יֹאמְרוּ אֵלֶיךָ כִּי לֹא אֹתְךָ מָאָסוּ כִּי־אֹתִי מָאֲסוּ מִמְּלֹךְ עֲלֵיהֶם׃
8 According to all the deeds which they have done to me, from the day I brought them up out of Egypt even to this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are also doing to you.  כְּכָל־הַמַּעֲשִׂים אֲשֶׁר־עָשׂוּ מִיֹּום הַעֲלֹתִי אֹתָם מִמִּצְרַיִם וְעַד־הַיֹּום הַזֶּה וַיַּעַזְבֻנִי וַיַּעַבְדוּ אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים כֵּן הֵמָּה עֹשִׂים גַּם־לָךְ׃
9 Now then, hearken to their voice; only, you shall solemnly warn them, and show them the ways of the king who shall reign over them."  וְעַתָּה שְׁמַע בְּקֹולָם אַךְ כִּי־הָעֵד תָּעִיד בָּהֶם וְהִגַּדְתָּ לָהֶם מִשְׁפַּט הַמֶּלֶךְ אֲשֶׁר יִמְלֹךְ עֲלֵיהֶם׃ ס
10 So Samuel told all the words of Yahweh to the people who were asking a king from him.  וַיֹּאמֶר שְׁמוּאֵל אֵת כָּל־דִּבְרֵי יְהוָה אֶל־הָעָם הַשֹּׁאֲלִים מֵאִתֹּו מֶלֶךְ׃ ס
11 He said, "These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen, and to run before his chariots;  וַיֹּאמֶר זֶה יִהְיֶה מִשְׁפַּט הַמֶּלֶךְ אֲשֶׁר יִמְלֹךְ עֲלֵיכֶם אֶת־בְּנֵיכֶם יִקָּח וְשָׂם לֹו בְּמֶרְכַּבְתֹּו וּבְפָרָשָׁיו וְרָצוּ לִפְנֵי מֶרְכַּבְתֹּו׃
12 and he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and some to plow his ground and to reap his harvest, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots.  וְלָשׂוּם לֹו שָׂרֵי אֲלָפִים וְשָׂרֵי חֲמִשִּׁים וְלַחֲרֹשׁ חֲרִישֹׁו וְלִקְצֹר קְצִירֹו וְלַעֲשֹׂות כְּלֵי־מִלְחַמְתֹּו וּכְלֵי רִכְבֹּו׃
13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers.  וְאֶת־בְּנֹותֵיכֶם יִקָּח לְרַקָּחֹות וּלְטַבָּחֹות וּלְאֹפֹות׃
14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants.  וְאֶת־שְׂדֹותֵיכֶם וְאֶת־כַּרְמֵיכֶם וְזֵיתֵיכֶם הַטֹּובִים יִקָּח וְנָתַן לַעֲבָדָיו׃
15 He will take the tenth of your grain and of your vineyards and give it to his officers and to his servants.  וְזַרְעֵיכֶם וְכַרְמֵיכֶם יַעְשֹׂר וְנָתַן לְסָרִיסָיו וְלַעֲבָדָיו׃
16 He will take your menservants and maidservants, and the best of your cattle and your asses, and put them to his work.  וְאֶת־עַבְדֵיכֶם וְאֶת־שִׁפְחֹותֵיכֶם וְאֶת־בַּחוּרֵיכֶם הַטֹּובִים וְאֶת־חֲמֹורֵיכֶם יִקָּח וְעָשָׂה לִמְלַאכְתֹּו׃
17 He will take the tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves.  צֹאנְכֶם יַעְשֹׂר וְאַתֶּם תִּהְיוּ־לֹו לַעֲבָדִים׃
18 And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves; but Yahweh will not answer you in that day."  וּזְעַקְתֶּם בַּיֹּום הַהוּא מִלִּפְנֵי מַלְכְּכֶם אֲשֶׁר בְּחַרְתֶּם לָכֶם וְלֹא־יַעֲנֶה יְהוָה אֶתְכֶם בַּיֹּום הַהוּא׃
19 But the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel; and they said, "No! but we will have a king over us,  וַיְמָאֲנוּ הָעָם לִשְׁמֹעַ בְּקֹול שְׁמוּאֵל וַיֹּאמְרוּ לֹּא כִּי אִם־מֶלֶךְ יִהְיֶה עָלֵינוּ׃
20 that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may govern us and go out before us and fight our battles."  וְהָיִינוּ גַם־אֲנַחְנוּ כְּכָל־הַגֹּויִם וּשְׁפָטָנוּ מַלְכֵּנוּ וְיָצָא לְפָנֵינוּ וְנִלְחַם אֶת־מִלְחֲמֹתֵנוּ׃
21 And when Samuel had heard all the words of the people, he repeated them in the ears of Yahweh.  וַיִּשְׁמַע שְׁמוּאֵל אֵת כָּל־דִּבְרֵי הָעָם וַיְדַבְּרֵם בְּאָזְנֵי יְהוָה׃ ף
22 And Yahweh said to Samuel, "Hearken to their voice, and make them a king." Samuel then said to the men of Israel, "Go every man to his city."  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל־שְׁמוּאֵל שְׁמַע בְּקֹולָם וְהִמְלַכְתָּ לָהֶם מֶלֶךְ וַיֹּאמֶר שְׁמוּאֵל אֶל־אַנְשֵׁי יִשְׂרָאֵל לְכוּ אִישׁ לְעִירֹו׃ ף

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
