Passage Commentary :: The concessive at the beginning of this passage has tremendous weight for interpreting the situation posed in I Samuel 8. When Israel assembles to Samuel and demands a king like the nations around them, God had already anticipated their request. But God does not cede entirely to this train of thought. They demand a king like the nations, YHWH says that they may have a king whom he chooses. The rest of the passage describe how the king must order his life while in kingship and indeed, I infer, is the trajectory he had set before coming into kingship. Israel will ask for a king "like the nations around them" and YHWH gives them that king in Saul because they were insistent. But soon after God gives them David, a king whom YHWH had chosen. Arc Commentary :: Many of the lower lever propositions have been left joined to larger thoughts so that the emphasis is on the main arcs of this passage. If/Then should be read as When/Then or as a T/Then.
