1 Samuel

  1 H259 Now there was a certain H376 man H7436 of Ramathaimzophim H2022 , of mount H669 Ephraim H8034 , and his name H511 was Elkanah H1121 , the son H3395 of Jeroham H1121 , the son H453 of Elihu H1121 , the son H8459 of Tohu H1121 , the son H6689 of Zuph H673 , an Ephrathite:
  2 H8147 And he had two H802 wives H8034 ; the name H259 of the one H2584 was Hannah H8034 , and the name H8145 of the other H6444 Peninnah H6444 : and Peninnah H3206 had children H2584 , but Hannah H3206 had no children.
  3 H1931 And this H376 man H5927 [H8804] went up H5892 from his city H3117 yearly H7812 [H8692] to worship H2076 [H8800] and to sacrifice H3068 to the LORD H6635 of hosts H7887 in Shiloh H8147 . And the two H1121 sons H5941 of Eli H2652 , Hophni H6372 and Phinehas H3548 , the priests H3068 of the LORD, were there.
  4 H3117 And when the time H511 was that Elkanah H2076 [H8799] offered H5414 [H8804] , he gave H6444 to Peninnah H802 his wife H1121 , and to all her sons H1323 and her daughters H4490 , portions:
  5 H2584 But to Hannah H5414 [H8799] he gave H259 a H639 worthy H4490 portion H157 [H8804] ; for he loved H2584 Hannah H3068 : but the LORD H5462 [H8804] had closed up H7358 her womb.
  6 H6869 And her adversary H3707 [H8765] also provoked H3708 her greatly H7481 [H8687] , to make her fret H3068 , because the LORD H5462 [H8804] had closed H1157 up H7358 her womb.
  7 H6213 [H8799] And as he did H8141 so year H8141 by year H1767 , when H5927 [H8800] she went up H1004 to the house H3068 of the LORD H3707 [H8686] , so she provoked H1058 [H8799] her; therefore she wept H398 [H8799] , and did not eat.
  8 H559 [H8799] Then said H511 Elkanah H376 her husband H2584 to her, Hannah H1058 [H8799] , why weepest H398 [H8799] thou? and why eatest H3824 thou not? and why is thy heart H3415 [H8799] grieved H2896 ? am not I better H6235 to thee than ten H1121 sons?
  9 H2584 So Hannah H6965 [H8799] rose H310 after H398 [H8800] they had eaten H7887 in Shiloh H310 , and after H8354 [H8800] they had drunk H5941 . Now Eli H3548 the priest H3427 [H8802] sat H3678 upon a seat H4201 by a post H1964 of the temple H3068 of the LORD.
  10 H4751 And she was in bitterness H5315 of soul H6419 [H8691] , and prayed H3068 to the LORD H1058 [H8799] , and wept H1058 [H8800] bitterly.
  11 H5087 [H8799] And she vowed H5088 a vow H559 [H8799] , and said H3068 , O LORD H6635 of hosts H7200 [H8800] , if thou wilt indeed H7200 [H8799] look H6040 on the affliction H519 of thy handmaid H2142 [H8804] , and remember H7911 [H8799] me, and not forget H519 thy handmaid H5414 [H8804] , but wilt give H519 to thy handmaid H582 H2233 a son H5414 [H8804] , then I will give H3068 him to the LORD H3117 all the days H2416 of his life H4177 , and there shall no razor H5927 [H8799] come H7218 upon his head.
  12 H7235 [H8689] And it came to pass, as she continued H6419 [H8692] praying H6440 before H3068 the LORD H5941 , that Eli H8104 [H8802] observed H6310 her mouth.
  13 H2584 Now Hannah H1696 [H8764] , spoke H3820 in her heart H8193 ; only her lips H5128 [H8801] moved H6963 , but her voice H8085 [H8735] was not heard H5941 : therefore Eli H2803 [H8799] thought H7910 she was drunk.
  14 H5941 And Eli H559 [H8799] said H7937 [H8691] to her, How long wilt thou be drunk H5493 [H8685] ? put away H3196 thy wine from thee.
  15 H2584 And Hannah H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H113 , No, my lord H802 , I am a woman H7186 of a sorrowful H7307 spirit H8354 [H8804] : I have drunk H3196 neither wine H7941 nor strong drink H8210 [H8799] , but have poured out H5315 my soul H6440 before H3068 the LORD.
  16 H5414 [H8799] Count H519 not thy handmaid H6440 for H1100 a wicked H1323 woman H7230 : for out of the abundance H7879 of my complaint H3708 and grief H1696 [H8765] have I been speaking.
  17 H5941 Then Eli H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H3212 [H8798] , Go H7965 in peace H430 : and the God H3478 of Israel H5414 [H8799] grant H7596 thee thy petition H7592 [H8804] that thou hast asked of him.
  18 H559 [H8799] And she said H8198 , Let thy handmaid H4672 [H8799] find H2580 grace H5869 in thy sight H802 . So the woman H3212 [H8799] went H1870 her way H398 [H8799] , and ate H6440 , and her countenance was no more sad.
  19 H7925 0 And they rose H1242 in the morning H7925 [H8686] early H7812 [H8691] , and worshipped H6440 before H3068 the LORD H7725 [H8799] , and returned H935 [H8799] , and came H1004 to their house H7414 to Ramah H511 : and Elkanah H3045 [H8799] knew H2584 Hannah H802 his wife H3068 ; and the LORD H2142 [H8799] remembered her.
  20 H3117 Therefore it came to pass, when the time H8622 had arrived H2584 after Hannah H2029 [H8799] had conceived H3205 [H8799] , that she bore H1121 a son H7121 [H8799] , and called H8034 his name H8050 Samuel H7592 [H8804] , saying, Because I have asked H3068 him of the LORD.
  21 H376 And the man H511 Elkanah H1004 , and all his house H5927 [H8799] , went up H2076 [H8800] to offer H3068 to the LORD H3117 the yearly H2077 sacrifice H5088 , and his vow.
  22 H2584 But Hannah H5927 [H8804] went not up H559 [H8804] ; for she said H376 to her husband H5288 , I will not go up until the child H1580 [H8735] is weaned H935 [H8689] , and then I will bring H7200 [H8738] him, that he may appear H6440 before H3068 the LORD H3427 [H8804] , and there abide H5704 for H5769 ever.
  23 H511 And Elkanah H376 her husband H559 [H8799] said H6213 [H8798] to her, Do H5869 what seemeth H2896 to thee good H3427 [H8798] ; tarry H1580 [H8800] until thou hast weaned H3068 him; only the LORD H6965 [H8686] establish H1697 his word H802 . So the woman H3427 [H8799] abode H3243 [H8686] , and nursed H1121 her son H1580 [H8800] until she weaned him.
  24 H1580 [H8804] And when she had weaned H5927 [H8686] him, she took him up H7969 with her, with three H6499 bulls H259 , and one H374 ephah H7058 of flour H5035 , and a bottle H3196 of wine H935 [H8686] , and brought H1004 him to the house H3068 of the LORD H7887 in Shiloh H5288 : and the child H5288 was young.
  25 H7819 [H8799] And they slew H6499 a bull H935 [H8686] , and brought H5288 the child H5941 to Eli.
  26 H559 [H8799] And she said H994 , O H113 my lord H5315 , as thy soul H2416 liveth H113 , my lord H802 , I am the woman H5324 [H8737] that stood H6419 [H8692] by thee here, praying H3068 to the LORD.
  27 H5288 For this child H6419 [H8694] I prayed H3068 ; and the LORD H5414 [H8799] hath given H7596 me my petition H7592 [H8804] which I asked of him:
  28 H7592 [H8689] Therefore also I have lent H3068 him to the LORD H3117 ; as long as he liveth H7592 [H8803] he shall be lent H3068 to the LORD H7812 [H8691] . And he worshipped H3068 the LORD there.
