|1 And Samuel said to all Israel, Behold, I have hearkened to your voice in all things that ye have said to me, and I have set a king over you. 2 And now, behold, the king goes before you; and I am grown old and shall rest; and, behold, my sons [are] among you; and, behold, I have gone about before you from my youth to this day. 3 Behold, [here am] I, answer against me before the Lord and before his anointed: whose calf have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom of you have I oppressed? or from whose hand have I taken a bribe, even [to] a sandal? bear witness against me, and I will make restitution to you. 4 And they said to Samuel, Thou hast not injured us, and thou hast not oppressed us; and thou hast not afflicted us, and thou hast not taken anything from any one’s hand. 5 And Samuel said to the people, The Lord [is] witness among you, and his anointed [is] witness this day, that ye have not found anything in my hand: and they said, [He is] witness. 6 And Samuel spoke to the people, saying, The Lord who appointed Moses and Aaron [is] witness, who brought our fathers up out of Egypt. 7 And now stand still, and I will judge you before the Lord; and I will relate to you all the righteousness of the Lord, the things which he has wrought among you and your fathers. 8 When Jacob and his sons went into Egypt, and Egypt humbled them, then our fathers cried to the Lord, and the Lord sent Moses and Aaron; and they brought our fathers out of Egypt, and he made them to dwell in this place. 9 And they forgot the Lord their God, and he sold them into the hands of Sisara captain of the host of Jabin king of Asor, and into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the king of Moab; and he fought with them. 10 And they cried to the Lord, and said, We have sinned, for we have forsaken the Lord, and have served Baalim and the groves: and now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee. 11 And he sent Jerobaal, and Barac, and Jephthae, and Samuel, and rescued us out of the hand of our enemies round about, and ye dwelt in security. 12 And ye saw that Naas king of the children of Ammon came against you, and ye said, Nay, none but a king shall reign over us; whereas the Lord our God [is] our king. 13 And now behold the king whom ye have chosen; and behold, the Lord has set a king over you. 14 If ye should fear the Lord, and serve him, and hearken to his voice, and not resist the mouth of the Lord, and ye and your king that reigns over you should follow the Lord, [well]. 15 But if ye should not hearken to the voice of the Lord, and ye should resist the mouth of the Lord, then shall the hand of the Lord be upon you and upon your king. 16 And now stand still, and see this great thing, which the Lord will do before your eyes. 17 [Is it] not wheat-harvest to-day? I will call upon the Lord, and he shall send thunder and rain; and know ye and see, that your wickedness [is] great which ye have wrought before the Lord, having asked for yourselves a king. 18 And Samuel called upon the Lord, and the Lord sent thunders and rain in that day; and all the people feared greatly the Lord and Samuel. 19 And all the people said to Samuel, Pray for thy servants to the Lord thy God, and let us not die; for we have added to all our sins this iniquity, in asking for us a king. 20 And Samuel said to the people, Fear not: ye have [indeed] wrought all this iniquity; only turn not from following the Lord, and serve the Lord with all your heart. 21 And turn not aside after the [gods] that are nothing, who will do nothing, and will not deliver [you], because they are nothing. 22 For the Lord will not cast off his people for his great name’s sake, because the Lord graciously took you to himself for a people. 23 And far be it from me to sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will serve the Lord, and shew you the good and the right way. 24 Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth and with all your heart, for ye see what great things he has wrought with you. 25 But if ye continue to do evil, then shall ye and your king be consumed.||
ΚΑΙ εἶπε Σαμουὴλ πρὸς πάντα ᾿Ισραήλ· ἰδοὺ ἤκουσα φωνῆς ὑμῶν εἰς πάντα, ὅσα εἴπατέ μοι, καὶ ἐβασίλευσα ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς βασιλέα. 2 καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεὺς διαπορεύεται ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν, κἀγὼ γεγήρακα καὶ καθήσομαι, καὶ οἱ υἱοί μου ἰδοὺ ἐν ὑμῖν· κἀγὼ ἰδοὺ διελήλυθα ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν ἐκ νεότητος καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης. 3 ἰδοὺ ἐγώ, ἀποκρίθητε κατ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἐνώπιον Κυρίου καὶ ἐνώπιον χριστοῦ αὐτοῦ· μόσχον τίνος εἴληφα ἢ ὄνον τίνος εἴληφα ἢ τίνα κατεδυνάστευσα ὑμῶν ἢ τίνα ἐξεπίεσα ἢ ἐκ χειρὸς τίνος εἴληφα ἐξίλασμα καὶ ὑπόδημα; ἀποκρίθητε κατ᾿ ἐμοῦ, καὶ ἀποδώσω ὑμῖν. 4 καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς Σαμουήλ· οὐκ ἠδίκησας ἡμᾶς καὶ οὐ κατεδυνάστευσας ἡμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἔθλασας ἡμᾶς καὶ οὐκ εἴληφας ἐκ χειρὸς οὐδενὸς οὐδέν. 5 καὶ εἶπε Σαμουὴλ πρὸς τὸν λαόν· μάρτυς Κύριος ἐν ὑμῖν καὶ μάρτυς χριστὸς αὐτοῦ σήμερον ἐν ταύτῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ, ὅτι οὐχ εὑρήκατε ἐν χειρί μου οὐδέν. καὶ εἶπαν· μάρτυς. 6 καὶ εἶπε Σαμουὴλ πρὸς τὸν λαὸν λέγων· μάρτυς Κύριος ὁ ποιήσας τὸν Μωυσῆν καὶ τὸν ᾿Ααρών, ὁ ἀναγαγὼν τοὺς πατέρας ἡμῶν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου. 7 καὶ νῦν κατάστητε, καὶ δικάσω ὑμᾶς ἐνώπιον Κυρίου καὶ ἀπαγγελῶ ὑμῖν τὴν πᾶσαν δικαιοσύνην Κυρίου, ἃ ἐποίησεν ἐν ὑμῖν καὶ ἐν τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν· 8 ὡς εἰσῆλθεν ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ εἰς Αἴγυπτον, καὶ ἐταπείνωσεν αὐτοὺς Αἴγυπτος, καὶ ἐβόησαν οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν πρὸς Κύριον, καὶ ἀπέστειλε Κύριος τὸν Μωυσῆν καὶ τὸν ᾿Ααρὼν καὶ ἐξήγαγον τοὺς πατέρας ἡμῶν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ κατῴκισεν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ. 9 καὶ ἐπελάθοντο Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ αὐτῶν, καὶ ἀπέδοτο αὐτοὺς εἰς χεῖρας Σισάρᾳ ἀρχιστρατήγῳ ᾿Ιαβὶν βασιλέως ᾿Ασὼρ καὶ εἰς χεῖρας ἀλλοφύλων καὶ εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Μωάβ, καὶ ἐπολέμησαν ἐν αὐτοῖς. 10 καὶ ἐβόησαν πρὸς Κύριον καὶ ἔλεγον· ἡμάρτομεν, ὅτι ἐγκατελίπομεν τὸν Κύριον καὶ ἐδουλεύσαμεν τοῖς Βααλὶμ καὶ τοῖς ἄλσεσι· καὶ νῦν ἐξελοῦ ἡμᾶς ἐκ χειρὸς ἐχθρῶν ἡμῶν, καὶ δουλεύσομέν σοι. 11 καὶ ἀπέστειλε Κύριος τὸν ῾Ιεροβάαλ καὶ τὸν Βαρὰκ καὶ τὸν ᾿Ιεφθάε καὶ τὸν Σαμουὴλ καὶ ἐξείλατο ἡμᾶς ἐκ χειρὸς ἐχθρῶν ἡμῶν τῶν κυκλόθεν, καὶ κατῳκεῖτε πεποιθότες. 12 καὶ ἴδετε ὅτι Νάας βασιλεὺς υἱῶν ᾿Αμμὼν ἦλθεν ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς, καὶ εἴπατε· οὐχί, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ ὅτι βασιλεὺς βασιλεύσει ἐφ᾿ ἡμῶν· καὶ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν βασιλεὺς ἡμῶν. 13 καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεύς, ὃν ἐξελέξασθε, καὶ ἰδοὺ δέδωκε Κύριος ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς βασιλέα. 14 ἐὰν φοβηθῆτε τὸν Κύριον καὶ δουλεύσητε αὐτῷ καὶ ἀκούσητε τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ μὴ ἐρίσητε τῷ στόματι Κυρίου καὶ ἦτε καὶ ὑμεῖς καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς ὁ βασιλεύων ἐφ᾿ ὑμῶν ὀπίσω Κυρίου πορευόμενοι· 15 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ἀκούσητε τῆς φωνῆς Κυρίου καὶ ἐρίσητε τῷ στόματι Κυρίου, καὶ ἔσται χεὶρ Κυρίου ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα ὑμῶν. 16 καὶ νῦν κατάστητε καὶ ἴδετε τὸ ῥῆμα τό μέγα τοῦτο, ὃ ὁ Κύριος ποιήσει ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς ὑμῶν. 17 οὐχὶ θερισμὸς πυρῶν σήμερον; ἐπικαλέσομαι Κύριον, καὶ δώσει φωνὰς καὶ ὑετόν, καὶ γνῶτε καὶ ἴδετε ὅτι ἡ κακία ὑμῶν μεγάλη, ἣν ἐποιήσατε ἐνώπιον Κυρίου, αἰτήσαντες ἑαυτοῖς βασιλέα. 18 καὶ ἐπεκαλέσατο Σαμουὴλ τὸν Κύριον, καὶ ἔδωκε Κύριος φωνὰς καὶ ὑετὸν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ· καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τὸν Κύριον σφόδρα καὶ τὸν Σαμουήλ. 19 καὶ εἶπαν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Σαμουήλ· πρόσευξαι ὑπὲρ τῶν δούλων σου πρὸς Κύριον Θεόν σου, καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀποθάνωμεν, ὅτι προστεθείκαμεν πρὸς πάσας τὰς ἁμαρτίας ἡμῶν κακίαν αἰτήσαντες ἑαυτοῖς βασιλέα. 20 καὶ εἶπε Σαμουὴλ πρὸς τὸν λαόν· μὴ φοβεῖσθε· ὑμεῖς πεποιήκατε τὴν πᾶσαν κακίαν ταύτην, πλὴν μὴ ἐκκλίνητε ἀπό ὄπισθεν Κυρίου καὶ δουλεύσατε τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ ὑμῶν 21 καὶ μὴ παραβῆτε ὀπίσω τῶν μηθὲν ὄντων, οἳ οὐ περανοῦσιν οὐθὲν καὶ οἳ οὐκ ἐξελοῦνται, ὅτι οὐθέν εἰσιν. 22 ὅτι οὐκ ἀπώσεται Κύριος τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ διὰ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ τὸ μέγα, ὅτι ἐπιεικῶς Κύριος προσελάβετο ὑμᾶς εἰς λαόν. 23 καὶ ἐμοὶ μηδαμῶς τοῦ ἁμαρτεῖν τῷ Κυρίῳ ἀνιέναι τοῦ προσεύχεσθαι περὶ ὑμῶν, καὶ δουλεύσω τῷ Κυρίῳ καὶ δείξω ὑμῖν τὴν ὁδὸν τὴν ἀγαθὴν καὶ τὴν εὐθεῖαν· 24 πλὴν φοβεῖσθε τὸν Κύριον καὶ δουλεύσατε αὐτῷ ἐν ἀληθείᾳ καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ ὑμῶν, ὅτι ἴδετε ἃ ἐμεγάλυνε μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν, 25 καὶ ἐὰν κακίᾳ κακοποιήσητε, καὶ ὑμεῖς καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς ὑμῶν προστεθήσεσθε.
