    旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 8 章

    8:1撒母耳年纪老迈,就立他儿子作以色列的士师。
    And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel.
    8:2长子名叫约珥,次子名叫亚比亚。他们在别是巴作士师。
    Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba.
    8:3他儿子不行他的道,贪图财利,收受贿赂,屈枉正直。
    And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.
    8:4以色列的长老都聚集,来到拉玛见撒母耳,
    Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
    8:5对他说,你年纪老迈了,你儿子不行你的道。现在求你为我们立一个王治理我们,像列国一样。
    And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.
    8:6撒母耳不喜悦他们说立一个王治理我们,他就祷告耶和华。
    But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
    8:7耶和华对撒母耳说,百姓向你说的一切话,你只管依从。因为他们不是厌弃你,乃是厌弃我,不要我作他们的王。
    And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
    8:8自从我领他们出埃及到如今,他们常常离弃我,事奉别神。现在他们向你所行的,是照他们来所行的。
    According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
    8:9故此你要依从他们的话,只是当警戒他们,告诉他们将来那王怎样管辖他们。
    Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
    8:10撒母耳将耶和华的话都传给求他立王的百姓,说,
    And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king.
    8:11管辖你们的王必这样行,他必派你们的儿子为他赶车,跟马,奔走在车前。
    And 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.
    8:12又派他们作千夫长,五十夫长,为他耕种田地,收割庄稼,打造军器和车上的器械。
    And 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.
    8:13必取你们的女儿为他制造香膏,作饭烤饼。
    And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
    8:14也必取你们最好的田地,葡萄园,橄榄园赐给他的臣仆。
    And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
    8:15你们的粮食和葡萄园所出的,他必取十分之一给他的太监和臣仆。
    And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
    8:16又必取你们的仆人婢女,健壮的少年人和你们的驴,供他的差役。
    And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
    8:17你们的羊群,他必取十分之一,你们也必作他的仆人。
    He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
    8:18那时你们必因所选的王哀求耶和华,耶和华却不应允你们。
    And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
    8:19百姓竟不肯听撒母耳的话,说,不然。我们定要一个王治理我们,
    Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;
    8:20使我们像列国一样,有王治理我们,统领我们,为我们争战。
    That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.
    8:21撒母耳听见百姓这一切话,就将这话陈明在耶和华面前。
    And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD.
    8:22

    耶和华对撒母耳说,你只管依从他们的话,为他们立王。撒母耳对以色列人说,你们各归各城去吧。
    And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.

    这个算是和NHK的《北朝鲜纪实》相互呼应的。
