A nation does not turn to the State for salvation overnight. There has been a general and gradual breakdown in society which finally leads a people to such desperate action. The historical circumstances of 1 Samuel 8 must be seen in the light of the period of the Judges where “every man did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 17:6). The desire for a king such as all other nations had was evidence that the people had officially severed their allegiance with Jehovah: ‘‘And the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them’” (1 Samuel 8:7). The people believed that the source of their nation’s decline was in external circumstances.
Like Adam and Eve, the people of Israel were blame-shifting (cf. Genesis 3:9-13). Instead of repenting of their personal and corporate sins, they saw their nation’s problems as institutional. By changing the structure of government, they believed their nation would be saved. If only we adopt what other nations have, we will be secure! By increasing the power of the State, the people believed they could be assured of protection from their foreign enemies. Of course, as it turned out, Israel was constantly at war with her Philistine neighbors. The people of Israel failed to realize that oppression from internal and external powers is the result of God’s judgment upon the sins of His people.
