1 Samuel 15:22-26New American Standard Bible (NASB)
22 Samuel said,

Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. 23 “For rebellion is as the sin of divination, And insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He has also rejected you from being king.”
24 Then Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned; I have indeed transgressed the [a]command of the Lord and your words, because I feared the people and listened to their voice.25 Now therefore, please pardon my sin and return with me, that I may worship the Lord.”26 But Samuel said to Saul, “I will not return with you; for you have rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord has rejected you from being king over Israel.”
