  • Samuel was not being rejected by the people, contrary to what Samuel must have believed.
  • Rather, the people decided to renounce the Lord as their ruler.
  • The Lord added a bit of context: they have been doing that all the time because of their propensity for idolatry.
  • If they were to have a king, Samuel was to tell them what that king would do to them. Basically, the idea was that it would end up being no different than when they were in Egypt.
