But now your kingdom will not continue. Yahweh has sought for himself a man after his own heart and Yahweh has commanded him to be ruler over his people because you have not kept what Yahweh commanded you.” Bible other translations

“will not continue.” The Hebrew is more literally, “will not stand,” but it means “continue” in this context.

“you have not kept what Yahweh commanded you.” This almost certainly refers to much more than just that Saul did not wait for Samuel to offer the sacrifice. Saul had not had the heart of God for some years now.
