My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
Israel wanted a king, even though God warned them that an earthly king would do much evil. The people of Israel did not pay attention to God’s warnings, and instead kept insisting that God give them a king.
