Saul.. known as Sha'ul in Hebrew which literally means 'requested'. Saul was of the tribe of Benjamin. Shmu'el (Samuel) the prophet reluctantly acceded to the people's wish to have a human king. Until this time the Hebrew prophets had encouraged the people to accept God as the only king. (cf the first and second books of Samuel)
