CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
8:18 Cry out - Ye shall bitterly mourn for the sad effects of this inordinate desire of a king. Will not hear - Because you will not hear, nor obey his counsel in this day.
1 Samuel 8:17
He will demand a tenth of your flocks, and you will be his slaves.
You ignored my advice and rejected the correction I offered.
"When they cry for help, I will not answer. Though they anxiously search for me, they will not find me.
When you lift up your hands in prayer, I will not look. Though you offer many prayers, I will not listen, for your hands are covered with the blood of innocent victims.
They will go from one place to another, weary and hungry. And because they are hungry, they will rage and curse their king and their God. They will look up to heaven
Then you beg the LORD for help in times of trouble! Do you really expect him to answer? After all the evil you have done, he won't even look at you!"
