8 Now it came to pass when Samuel was aold that he bmade his csons judges over Israel. 2 The name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beersheba. 3 But his sons ddid not walk in his ways; they turned aside eafter dishonest gain, ftook bribes, and perverted justice.
4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, 5 and said to him, “Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now gmake us a king to judge us like all the nations.”
